I've had each book in this series for a while and recently started listening from the beginning. I enjoy this book and the way that the author blends the alpha male personality with his vulnerability and a strong woman's determination.
Anyone who likes Christine Feehan, Laurell K Hamilton (Anita Blake series) or Karen Marie Moning's (Highlander series) would enjoy this series as well.
Knows her stuff
I love supernatural romance or fantasy romance whatever you want to call them. But I have read so many of them that they sometimes become too predictable. I am always on the lookout for books and series that can hold my interest and throw a couple of curve balls too. So far Showalter has been able to do just that.
This book is predictable is some ways but in others it has an originality that I truly enjoyed. Danika is like so many women. She faces obstacles that are overwhelming but she does everything in her power to be strong and protect herself and the ones she loves. For most of the book she keeps falling short but in the end she finds a strength in her gift that makes her stronger than she could have ever dreamed.
Plus Showalter brings in a wicked question to have ask yourself, ???Can I physically harm the person I care about if pain is pleasurable to that person???? J.R. Ward had a book in her Black Dagger Brotherhood series that asked the same thing. Showalter managed to avoid going so dark and depressing though.
The two series are very similar and I like them both, but Showalter is not nearly as dark or hard core as Ward. You should try them both and see which one you like more.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I love this series! If you enjoy paranormal romance then look no further....this series is GREAT!
This book was one of my favorites!!!
Gena Showalter can write a sexy story, thats for sure, of the 4 books in the series of The Lords of the Underworld, I think Reyes with his demon "pain was my favorite, I love how hard he fought for his soul mate Danika Ford, but stayed true to his brotherhood & friends, its the 3 rd book in the series and was a trully great listen..
Max Bellmore has a wonderful voice with good various pitches to adjust to each character, he makes very easy to follow and know each character, and I didn't get tired of his voice. I was also glad they kept the same narrater for all 4 book, thats always a plus for me.. enjoy
I used to be an avid reader of Romance novels. I usually preferred the Harlequin & Silhouette series''. I would read several books a day over the summer and several a week during school months. I took a long break as an adult but have gotten back to it this year and am very much enjoying my Audible experience. So far I still really like general Romance but have found a real unexpected joy in Supernatural & Paranormal Romances.
I'm totally addicted to this series. I've loved learning about each of the Lords and seeing the world and fight between them and the Hunters develop. The series just keeps getting better with each book.
The only complaint that I have at this point is that there are so many Lords that I'm getting them mixed up and forgetting who has which demon.
This book is about Reyes (Pain) and his human -- introduced in the first book. It's a wonderful story and as always, the chemistry written between the two main characters just sucked me in.
I love that the other Lords are so accepting of the women who are joining them. They're beginning to see positive benefits to giving up their bachelor ways and some are even coming around to the possibility of finding someone of their own one day.
Too many books, so little time. 5 stars=Great, 4 stars=Good, 3 stars=Okay, 2 stars= Sucked, 1 star=Awful.
I have enjoyed the stories of the LOTU, but this one was a little on the sick side. Still a good story but I don’t enjoy the pleasure from pain kind of sex. I know this had to be considering his demon, and I don’t mind a bit of spanking but this was over the top in some of the scenes for a sexual build up. I like the characters and the main story; I will defiantly continue to read the remaining books in the series.
The story is getting old but the author continues to write very well, interject twists and background information that keeps the reader/listener interested.
Believer in what you can't see
The best part is how lovable Reyes is. Even though he is the demon of pain, he has learn to control the demon enough to only hurt himself. He always thinks of what his action will do to someone else.
The best part of the story is how Reyes takes care of Danika. He makes sure she has everything she needs and tries to protect her from his demon's violence nature.
He doesn't want Danika's nature to change because of who he is and he tries to avoid having sex with her because he doesn't want Danika to have to hurt him to bring him pleasure, but surprisingly she doesn't have to.
Reyes is my favorite in this story. Although his task is great, he does whatever it takes to do the right thing.
The most moving moment is when Reyes losses Danika and he is besides himself, but he is still compassionate toward others, especially Danika's Mom, Grandma and sisters.
I love the idea of beings that are possessed by emotions and behaviors that we all have and how the characters deal with them.
From the start of the series I have been waiting to listen to the story of Reyes and Danika. What a great story Gena weaves and you definitely get to know these characters in prior books so you are looking forward to more when their books are up. The series continues to get better with each book. Book one starts a little to slow for my taste but the ending made up for the slow start. Book two was much better and this 3rd book even better. More action and mystery with less slow spots.
Like I said before, book one had me looking forward to Reyes' story and it was worth the wait.
