Book Review: The Darkest Pleasure by: Gena Showalter

Summary: Reyes is a man possessed. Bound by the demon of pain, he is forbidden to know pleasure. Yet he craves a mortal woman, Danika Ford, more than breath and will do anything to claim her—even defy the gods. Danika is on the run. For months she's eluded the Lords of the Underworld, immortal warriors who won't rest until she and her family have been destroyed. But her dreams are haunted by Reyes, the warrior whose searing touch she can't forget. Yet a future together could mean death to all they both hold dear.

Wow, I just finished this and I am still in awe of how this book ended, it was amazing. The beginning was mind numbingly slow...unfortunately, and a ton of catch-up. The middle picked up a bit, built up some steam, well a ton of steam really, I love these two characters together. The ending, was amazing, I didn't see it coming at all...and it was expertly written. Most of the sad plot points were cleared up, except the one belonging to Paris, I am glad he chose his friend over his enemy women. I am also curious to see what will happen with Aeron and his little demon...and the fact that its a girl, is even crazier. Overall, after you get through the first few chapters, it gets pretty good. I like Reyes, but he does wallow a lot...and that got a bit boring. We also have a new enemy...we will have to see where that goes.
