Publisher's summary

He's never wanted anyone... until her.

After being condemned to the fighting Pits as a child, Kace was forced to do horrifying things to survive. Now, as an adult with a curse that intensifies his rage, he keeps himself away from anything that can break his carefully constructed control. So when he meets Eva, the only woman who has ever ignited such raw, violent passion, he has no choice but to stay away.

Eva didn't think much when her vampire ex-boyfriend showed up asking for her back. Except she wasn't interested, and the man she had once loved wasn't taking no for an answer. Defended by a tall, moody and definitely dangerous man her ex left, and she thought that was the end of it…

Until she wakes up dead.

Thrown into an unfamiliar world, Eva only has one hope to free herself from her new master, and it just happens to be the same man she’s been warned to stay away from.

---

Warning: Touch of Blood is a dark paranormal romance that contains explicit content, graphic violence, profanity, and topics that may be sensitive to some listeners. Recommended for 18+.

Touch of Blood can be listened to as a standalone, but recommended in order.

Eva and Kace!!

This story takes place after the first, with Eva and her special relationship with Kace. Plus Eva's unsavory ex and an angsty teenage shifter.
It explores Kace's background and does an excellent job giving him the reason for his dark personality and I loved how Eva brought light to his darkness. They were a great foil to one another. Eva gets a lot thrown at her in a short amount of time and she does her best to stay strong, despite circumstances beyond her control.
It's a good story with fantastic chemistry between Eva and Kace (and literally everyone trying to pull them apart because Kace is just a smidge crazy and a lot violent). I've enjoyed the background and world that the author has created and I'm glad she's still writing books in it!
In the first half of the book, there aren't too many scenes with the two leads, but the latter half has plenty of steaminess and banter. Plus Lucy makes an appearance or two and I am here for it!

The narrators are great! They both did a great job with voicing all the characters. I liked that the same narrators continued with the series, as they both helped out with the first book in the series.

This story contains lots of violence (some gore), steam, abduction, abuse, and implied SA (nothing on page).

I recommend reading the story in order. They are all unique books with their own stories, but understanding everything is better if read in order.

Note: this series is set in the same world as the Alice Skye series, while not necessary to read that series first, I'd recommend it because it is a wonderful series and introduces most of the characters in this series.

Touch of Blood

This was Eva amd Kace's story. Things start off with Eva having some major changes in her life. Kace is dealing with his rage, always on the cusp of completely losing himself. We get to see their journey towards each other and how they deal with Vipers in London. The narration was pretty good and help move things along. #TheFlockVIPReviewTeam

Intresting

The narrators did a good job telling the story.

3.5* storyline

It's a bit of a slow romance. I felt bad for the FMC as she was taken and disappeared and no one noticed or bothered looking for her some time. It was a good story that got more interesting towards the end.

Book 2, Kace and Eva

I absolutely love this series. I really enjoy paranormal/fantasy that is well written, providing a world building that provides details and yet doesn’t overwhelm you.
Kace was abused and taught to fight to survive and can barely control the beast within him; however he is the protector of children threatened to live a childhood like his and all protects women. He finds ways to release his anger and therefore his beast.
Eva is a dancer, living across the hall and friends with the heroine in the first book of the series. Strong willed and knows her own worth, but becomes entangled with a vampire who ultimately changes and destroys her choices.
Kace and Eva unknowingly and therefore attempt to avoid contact and undeniable draw to each other.
Vampires, witches, druids, humans, demons…all manner of creatures exist in this world and are all fascinating as each story evolves.
I can’t wait for more of the enthralling and fascinating series….so worth your time if you like paranormal/fantasy with fated mates, heat and loyalty.
Incredible narration with voices that change with characters and give you the raw edge of the lives within.

Book 2

This is book 2 in White's Curse of the Guardians series and was beautifully narrated by the talents of Drake and West - loved the accents as well as the pitch and tone - these two were amazing! Our main characters are Kace and Eva who we met in book 1. While I very much enjoyed this dark, paranormal romance listen, I found that some of the storyline didn't seem to flow as smoothly or was as easy to follow as some, but I still loved our characters and the darkness that consumed them and threatened their HEA. Lots of violence within but plenty of steamy chemistry and some twists and turns as well. I think my favorite character is Lucy who brings out the best comic relief and had me bursting out in laughter as his banter and personality. I also loved that while Kace is part of the Guardians and a team, he still isolates himself so much and somehow Eva is able to break through that barrier with no effort. Overall, a very well-done paranormal romance with lots of dark elements (please be aware of trigger warnings - if applicable) and enjoy this listen of revenge and redemption!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I voluntarily provided this review.

Character embodiment!

I was worried that this audiobook wouldn’t live up to my high standards of Kace and Eva, considering this is my favorite book of the series. But LET ME TELL YOU it was perfect. I don’t say that lightly. DB West did an amazing job as Kace. Several goosebump moments, thinking about getting “Eyes on me” permanently! He gave off enough internal conflict with his voice that really gave me true Kace vibes. Lilly Drake also did a beautiful job of voicing Eva. I thought from the first audiobook that she would really shine through with Eva and she did not disappoint. So glad I have the audiobook; I will be listening to it again when in a book rut. Thank you Taylor for this book, even after reading other books I seem to come back to this one! I cannot wait to get to experience the next book with a new voice for Axel!

Even better than I thought it would be

Even better than I thought it would be when I first got my glimpse of this future couple in Book 1. Kace is known as the unpredictable one in the Guardians, to the extreme, but I could see the writing on the wall that Eva would bring him to his knees...and make him whole. Who knew Kace had a sweet side...oh yea no one because it only exists for Eva. Eva considered him infuriating, but deep down she knew she could trust him to protect her. When Kace discovers she's in danger under the same man he desperately wants to destroy, he realizes his priorities have shifted. I did get annoyed by his fellow Guardians a little...they could at least try to have a little faith. I loved that fate refused to let these two go their separate ways, and that Eva refused to let him let her go. These two deserved happiness. And the story kept me engaged with lots of action, danger, and pulse-pounding suspense. The narration was terrific as well.

Touch of Blood

This is the second book in the Curse of the Guardians series. This book is told from Kace and Eva's POV. I really enjoyed this book. Kace has been forced to fight his entire life. Eva gets sold, and Kace will do anything to save her. Will his curse hinder his chances of rescuing her? Lilly Drake and DB West did a great job narrating this book.
