Book #: Book 5 in the Guardians of Eternity series
A scarred recluse, Jagr makes no secret of his disdain for others’ company. But now, as a member of Chicago’s powerful vampire clan, he has certain obligations to fulfill. The latest: track down a missing were pureblood and return her to her sister. The problem: Regan Garrett has no intention of complying. And though Jagr agreed not to harm an inch of this stubborn female’s distractingly tempting body, he’ll gladly kiss her into submission, awakening an urge he hasn’t felt in years. Hell, in centuries. . .
Regan vowed never to be at the mercy of another man. That goes double for arrogant, steel-muscled vampires with eyes of ice. All Regan wants is revenge against those who imprisoned her. She doesn’t need an ally. She certainly doesn’t need a mate. But soon Regan will have to choose–between a lust for vengeance, and a passion as dark and dangerous as the night. . .
Oh my god. I loved this book. This book was unexpected and bloody good and it got me all emotional and crying towards the end- crying over a book? I haven’t done that in months. The characters were spot on, the scenes were explosive and brilliant, the story was propelled along at a steady and pleasing pace. Jagr is hot as hell, damaged, stubborn, a recluse who loves books and television (basically he’s amazing) and Regan is a Darcy twin, she’s damaged as well but she’s strong and she’s ready to get her life on track. They make the perfect couple, as they are just so well suited to each other.
The stubborness is a trait among every character in this series, it’s more than expected, but towards the end of this book it hurts that they are so damn stubborn. The way that Jagr and Regan stubbornly refuse to be together is just… I knew it had to be temporary, they had to end up together in the end (right?) but oh, the feels.
Darkness Unleashed rating: 10/10. Fantastic book
Would I re-read it? Yes in a heartbeat. It was amazing
Who would I recommend it to? For fans of paranormal romances featuring vampires and werewolves.
