Publisher's Summary

I grew up as a prince...and lead the life of a king. There isn't anyone or anything that doesn't want me, that isn't attracted to me. They can't help it. And I sure as hell don't want them to. I live for their lust, I crave touch like an addiction, I make them beg on their knees for one simple caress. As a male siren, it's my job to feed off emotion. And I was happy to do it. I am happy to do it. 

What I'm not happy about? Being told I have to mate with some withering human and stay loyal to that one person for the next few centuries. There's a war coming, and being the idiot I am, I offered to take one for the team in order to help a friend. Now my sexual appetite is taking a freaking kick in the nuts. And I'm left wondering if it's worth it. If she's worth it, with messy hair and dirty human hands. But I have a world to save. A job to do. Now, if only she would just let me do it rather than fighting me at every turn. 

I've lived lifetimes as the most irresistible being on the planet. Only to meet my match. With one. Measly. Human. They say hell's hot. They're wrong. Because Hope, my little human, is way hotter. And before this is over, she may just singe me alive. 

Contains mature themes.

So much potential in this series

This series has so much potential, but falls so short.

The idea and that characters are phenomenal. This authors execution was absolutely terrible.

There are so many things wrong with this series, I can't list them all. The fundamental issue is that she seemed to have just made it all up as she went. It read like there was no forethought or after thought for that matter provided the book's get worse as you continue to read them. Things just get thrown in that go nowhere and tie into nothing. There are multiple inconsistencies that are impossible to ignore.

Now this book on it's own, is the worst yet. I have no idea how this has such a good rating!

What makes it all so much worse is that there was sooo much potential here. I just wish a better author attempted it.

another amazing book

the story is about Alex and Hope. Alex who needs to find his way and Hope who lost her way. these two characters are made it and they have a long struggle road ahead of them. werewolves and vampires gods and demons, kept me on my toes. this is a book definitely you need to start with the first book. this is the third one and I am so excited and I can't wait until the 4th. the narrator's did an amazing job doing different characters I never once got lost. the author did a great job however on this book I felt there were some spots missing almost as though she wrote the book too fast. the last two books had a little bit more detailed. I'm confident I will replay this book again just because there's a lot of past history arises. overall even though I felt the book was written too fast I will definitely listen to it again so worth a credit.

My Favorite

I knew Book about Alex would be entertaining and I was correct; Alex is so funny and into himself. Interesting and held my attention. Narrators did a great job with characters.

Good but the H is not very likeable!

This one was a bit difficult to get through as the H played games throughout and was 100% about himself. The h was caught between a rock and a hard place as a the gods could snuff her out with a thought.

The ending does explain why the MCs were the way they were but it would have been better for me if the H had some revelations a bit earlier so the relationship build would have made more sense.

dark surrender is amazing

... I love how in this book, she alternated between other characters. Yeah she does this that with all the couple's. 1 she gave a point of view from love it no complaints love how she gave us a point of view from characters who weren't just the couple's... I think that really helped spiced things up and gave us a good idea of what everybody else was feeling and thinking.
