Trapped for decades, a powerful god seeks freedom . . . and revenge. But the only thing that can save him is the passion of a woman's touch . . .
Emma Keane is your average city girl trying to get a date. There's just one thing holding her back: the disembodied male voice speaking to her through her mind. Sound kind of crazy? Maybe. But crazy turns downright deadly when the voice persuades her to travel to the wilds of the Mayan jungle. There she will free his body-his incredibly hot, muscled, naked body.
Humans are so frail, so undisciplined, so susceptible to love. And when this ancient being connects with Emma, the feelings she sparks drive him utterly mad. Protective, keep-her-close, never-let-her-go kind of mad. Which might not be such a bad thing because from the moment the beautiful, passionate Emma unshackles his body, they are hunted at every turn. Now he'll have to do everything in his power to keep her safe. But will it be enough?
From the first paragraph, this book had me hooked! Hilarious, engrossing, enjoyable, romantic… And that was only the first page! Luckily the rest of the book didn’t disappoint.
Multiple parts of the story had me laughing out loud – even in situations where laughter shouldn’t be possible – while others had me cringing in pain or embarrassment for the characters.
Emma is a fantastic heroine, funny, sharp, and self-deprecating, while Guy perfectly embodies all that a god should be. Their chemistry is off the charts, and the tension between them can at times be cut with a knife. What really makes them brilliant characters however, is how relatable they are. Sure, this is a light paranormal romance where the characters must save the world from total evil domination, but they still have time to argue and struggle to deal with crazy relatives.
Of the crazy relations, Cimil definitely takes the cake. She’s 100% insane, speaking seriously one minute then complaining about clowns the next. Needless to say, she’s definitely one of my favourite characters. Of favourite characters, Guy has become one of my top 100 fictional boyfriends. Though he’s at times arrogant and overbearing, he always has Emma’s best interests at heart, and is so gorgeous you cannot help but forgive him for his mistakes.
The plot twists come one right after the other, and while some of them aren’t hard to guess, others hit with the strength of a truck! The end of the book, for example, has a twist no one saw coming, and, painfully ends in a cliff-hanger.
If you like light, funny, paranormal romances with a hint of serious and majorly gorgeous cliff-hangers, then this book is for you. (I give it 4/5 stars)
