What the book has to say:
New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden spins a dark and sexy new paranormal romance tale…
He’s a man with a beast inside…
Connor Marrok never intended to work for the Seattle Para Unit. He’s not one of the good guys—he’s a real monster, and the beast he carries doesn’t exactly play nicely. But now he finds himself being blackmailed into a new assignment. It’s supposed to be his last gig. His mission? Protect the beautiful Chloe Quick. Keep her alive. Destroy her enemies. Easy enough…until he starts to fall for Chloe.
She just wants to escape.
Chloe is tired of being a prisoner. She wants to get away from her Para Unit guard and run fast into the night. So what if Connor is the sexiest guy she’s ever met? Chloe knows trouble when she sees it, and Connor is one big, dangerous package of trouble. But, when an obsessed werewolf begins stalking Chloe, she realizes that her paranormal bodyguard may just be the one man she needs the most.
Their attraction is primal.
Every moment that Chloe and Connor spend together increases their attraction. Chloe has never felt a need so strong or a desire so dark. The beast that Chloe carries inside has always been silent, but Connor is stirring up her animal instincts. And as the danger and desire begin to twist together, Chloe wonders just how far she’d be willing to go…in order to spend one more night in Connor’s arms.
What I have to say:
Chloe just wants her freedom but every moment she spends with Connor Marrok stirs up her animal instincts until she wonders just what she's willing to do in order to spend one more night in his arms in this exciting paranormal romance.
To say that Connor is unhappy having to work for the Seattle Para unit is an understatement but he doesn't count on his latest assignment getting under his skin and the reader can't help but get caught up in all the flying sparks and burning attraction that flows from Connor and Chloe as struggle with their relationship while fighting an obsessive enemy. These strong bewitching characters take the readers by storm and infuse the story with lots of explosive energy and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot thrills and excites with lots of suspense, action and passion. While the sizzling desires and steamy sex adds lots of spice to the story, the relationship adds lots of depth because of the conflicted emotions of both Chloe and Connor's past issues and traumas.
Excitement, expectation and explosive action ensures that there is never a dull moment with spine tingling suspense building throughout the story as the danger to Chloe escalates, past secrets come to light and emotional curve balls and unexpected twists keep the characters and the readers on their toes. The well orchestrated events along with the long run series plot draws the readers in and ensures that they keep coming back for more with the well written scenes and details bringing the story to life.
So far this series has some energetic and charismatic characters that demand attention and some unique and different elements that all comes together to make for a very action packed and passionate stories and I can't wait to find out what happens next in Purgatory.
