Book Review: Piercing Ecstasy (Guardians of the Realms #5) by Setta Jay

Jax is pretty much the textbook definition of a man whore. Over the centuries he has been know for his insatiable sexual appetite and he keeps a harem of women, and occasionally a man, at his beck and call. However, with so many of his Guardian brothers finding their mates, he knows he will probably be finding his own soon as well.

Illeana has been completely on her own since she was a little girl. Her only goal in life is revenge and she has made sure she is a kick ass warrior so she can get what she desperately aches for. The minute she sees and scents Jax, she knows exactly what he is to her and how screwed she is. Her search was just starting to get somewhere and now she will have to deal with this inconvenience.

I have to admit that I was a bit wary of Jax based on things he said in the previous book. He just came off as a bit of a jerk. But I worried for no reason because he was amazing. Setta has a beautiful talent for writing alpha males with the most delicious dirty mouths and Jax's had me melting through the entire book. But beyond his dirty words, I loved the way he was with Illeana. The tenderness and appreciation he showed for his mate was swoon worthy.

Now while we have this steamy love story going on, there is also the unrest within the Realms that has carried on through each book. All of the Guardians are on edge and just waiting for something big to happen. Now that the evil Elizabeth has gotten her hands on her sleeping God, will she be able to wake him? And what will happen if she does? No one wants to find out and all of the Guardians are trying their hardest to prevent that from happening.

This entire book was great but the final few chapters were ah-frickin-mazing. Lots of action and huge revelations and a setup to the next book that left me screaming to have it now. I NEED IT RIGHT NOW! The next book will definitely be the most highly anticipated for me, without a doubt. I love this series so damn hard and Piercing Ecstasy was one of my favorites so far (Uri is still #1). Seriously, this ending was just - GAH!

All of the books in the Guardians of the Realms series may be read as standalones but I highly recommend reading them all in order. It just gives more depth to the stories and you can see that overall plot develop and grow as each book continues. They are beautifully written and a must read for fans of paranormal romance.

Favorite Quotes
"Eyes open Illeana. I want you to see who's in you. Who gives you what you need."

"I'm going to fuck you unconscious again, kitten."

"Submit fully, kitten, and you'll get everything you need."

"You've yet to feed me, kitten, and I'm fucking starving."

Title: Piercing Ecstasy
Author: Setta Jay
Series: The Guardians of the Realms #5
Genre: Erotica, Paranormal Romance, Fantasy
After a hellish month of searching, Immortal warrior Jax and his brethren, the Guardians of the Realms, are nowhere near finding the sleeping God who was stolen by their enemy. As if that isn't problem enough, after millennia, other Guardians are dropping like flies to the mating frenzy. Jax never dreamed he could be next. After all, he’s too flawed, his sexual appetite too insatiable to ever be completely fulfilled by one being. Could a lone female even handle his needs let alone quench his never ending desire?

Ileana lives a solitary life in the shadows, a ghost thirsting for vengeance. A warrior Ailouros, half cat, whose sheer existence has been kept secret by a special ability no one can know exists, she is closed off and trusts no one. After thousands of years spent in near isolation while hunting her prey, she has finally found a clue leading to the location of her enemy. Revenge is at hand.

When a fantastically hot Guardian unknowingly puts himself in the middle of a deadly intrigue, nearly ruining her careful plans, Ileana is forced to make a choice. Her one chance at finding vengeance will hinge on hurling them both into piercing ecstasy.

Warning: This book is intended for an adult audience. There are dirty talking Guardians with bad language, some violence, and explicit scenes hot enough to give you cat scratch fever.


About the Author
The sad truth is that I'm not nearly as entertaining as fiction. *Wink* I am a thirty-seven year old stayat home writer, thanks to my incredibly supportive husband. We've been together for thirteen years and I still love waking up next to that sexy man. We lost our furry child recently, so we are childless at the moment. Our whole world revolved around her. Needless to say, I love animals, especially dogs. Okay, maybe not all animals, I'm not a super big fan of monkeys. Any animal that throws their feces kind of eeks me out. I may, or may not, have a problem with candy. I love any research that leads to Neiman Marcus' online shoe department. Spreadsheets give me way more happiness than they should. I love to read, the dirtier the better. It all started with the naughty historical romances by Judith McNaught that I devoured as a teenager. I love reading about hot, sexy alpha males and heroines that are smart enough to live.
