Awakened (Eternal Guardians #8)
by Elisabeth Naughton
DAMON – For twenty-five years he’s served as a plaything for the gods. With no memory of his past, he has no way of knowing if this is his ultimate fate, but he senses there has to be more to life.
Damon’s hope for more comes in the form of the Sirens’ newest recruit. Elysia is unlike any trainee he’s ever met. Not only can she remember where she came from—an ability the Sirens block—but she has an instant connection to Damon, one he’s never felt and doesn’t understand. Soon Damon is willing to do anything to have Elysia. Even risk the wrath of the gods to break her out of Olympus so he can keep her for himself.
But Damon’s past isn’t a mystery to everyone. Evil forces are at work beneath the surface, and before long, Damon realizes that the connection he shares with Elysia isn’t a random coincidence. His fate—and the darkness it brings—was cemented long ago. And when it is finally revealed, no one will be safe.
Damon had always been a staple in Aprodite’s bed. He gave her pleasure like he did to the sirens and the ladies she brought on the table. He had a taste of a lot of women, for as long as he remembered. So when he was asked to get involved in the new siren’s recruitment/training, he wasn’t that thrilled at all.
Elysia was soon to be crowned Queen of Argolea and she overheard that her parents planned to bind her to someone she didn’t love. She escaped to find freedom, but her journey was cut short when Zeus’ Sirens captured her and thrown her at Olympus to become a new recruit.
Training to become a Siren usually took seven years, and their memories were completely wiped out. But for some odd reason, Elysia’s memories came back to her and in the long run, she had managed to shorten her stay in Olympus. Could this be Divine Intervention? Or a sinister plot masterminded by Zeus?
This is an ongoing series about the Eternal Guardians of Argolea. One might be put off by the number of characters in the stories. When I say “a number”, I meant really A LOT of characters, and one could get lost with them.
Suffice it to say, Awakened is truly an awakening book. My eyes went wide like saucers, my lips were swollen because I had to bite them a million times while trying to muffle the sounds coming out of my mouth. I can’t tell you how erotic and steamy this book is, from beginning to end. All I know is, you’d be sweating profusely afterwards.
This is another great hit by Elisabeth Naughton and the series just keeps getting better and better! I remember reading Marked sometime ago and had read a few others after that. I loved how this series evolved and became one of my favorites. Damon and Elysia are one hot pair and are eternally meant for each other. Miss Naughton sure does make them Guardians hot and mighty. The book is scintillating, titillating, amazing and definitely awakening!
