~5 DIVINE STARS~
“Hades is your mate.”
Divine Ecstasy is the eighth book in the Guardians of the Realm Series. In order to enjoy every morsel of this read, it is imperative that you read this entire series in order. Just be prepared because once you start this series, you will be hooked and will not want to stop. You will find yourself immersed in this magical world and will want to know everything you can about these characters.
Divine Ecstasy picks up right after Searing Ecstasy. Sacha, a guardian, has been left in a coma. The great god Hades has been awakened from slumber in order to help battle his brother Apollo. While the guardians are preparing to battle their enemies, Hades finds himself drawn to the sleeping Sacha and heals her. Hades recognizes her instantly as his mate and will stop at nothing to be with her.
Sacha wakes up disoriented and struggling to gain her bearings. Although she is drawn to the god, she cannot release the demons from her past in order for them to come together. In order for them to come together, she will have to let go of her past.
“Power thrummed in her veins and his soul cradled hers.”
Hades is fiercely protective of Sacha and will stop at nothing to offer her comfort and safety. Hades remains true to his character as an “alpha male god with a dirty mouth” and Sacha is a perfect match for his quick witted tongue. Additionally, the physical connection between the two is explosive.
“Now come,” he growled while his power worked her pussy as he pinched her nipples harder. She gasped and came…”
“His kisses were consuming; he owned every bit of her, devouring, tempting, teasing…seducing her with a slow tangling of their tongues.”
Told in alternating POV, Divine Ecstasy was simply delicious. The connection between Sacha and Hades was thoroughly developed. The intensity with the action continues to build as the other guardians (and their mates) prepare for battle. As the chaos of another world threatens to stir up mayhem, the characters remain true to each other and their cause. The pacing was perfect in this read, and the text was rich and quick like a jousting match. What makes this series so unique is the authors ability to create each character completely. The physical and emotional makeup of each god and their mate is explored to the fullest, and it holds you captive in this alternate world.
True to Guardian protocol the author gives us a glimpse into the pairing of our next Guardian couple. The anticipation of what is to come has left me on the edge of my seat.
“I’ll give you anything you ask for.”
I highly recommend Divine Ecstasy to all of my paranormal romance friends. Each book showcases a Guardian and their mate, and I finish each book even more invested in this series. The well-developed story arc, passionate connections between the characters, and the underlying theme of brotherhood will always keep me coming back for more. I cannot wait for the next book to hit my Kindle!!!! Ms. Jay, you are the queen of paranormal romance!
