Review: Ecstasy in Darkness by Gena Showalter
New York Times bestselling sensation Gena Showalter enthralls with a dark, tantalizing world of humans, otherworlders, powers beyond imagining, and a seductive vampire undone by his insatiable hunger for one woman. . . .Growing up poor on New Chicago’s meanest streets, Ava Sans had two options: be the predator or be the prey. No contest. Now, working for Alien Investigation and Removal, she’s been ordered to capture the biggest, baddest warrior of all—a vampire too beautiful to be real, with the ability to manipulate time. Once the leader of the entire vampire army, McKell has been deemed savage and unstable, spurned even by his own kind.To McKell, humans should be nothing more than sustenance. Yet the petite, golden-skinned Ava is a fascinating contradiction—vicious yet witty, strong yet vulnerable, lethal but fiercely loyal. Against his better judgment, McKell craves that loyalty, and much more. When the chase leads to seduction, McKell and Ava will race to discover the truth about his past. But the answers will come at a price, even for a woman who thought she had nothing left to lose. . .
If you like heroines that are bitches that wouldn't be caught dead in heels then Ave Sans is your girl. She mean, devious, snarky, and hell on wheels not to mention that she would make a great bff if you are the type of girl that your bff could call you a fat ass cow and make you laugh. She also will not be caught dead in designer anything and would take the world on for her people. She grew up poor and she's very possessive of her stuff.. Her and her bff/partner Noelle are tasked with bringing in McKell but he gets the drop on them. But he doesn't hurt them and for some reason becomes enamored with Ava. And Ava has nothing on a possessive McKell. He's all about the mine. while they are dancing around each other he has to avoid these doorways that try and suck him in and she and Noelle and the rest of the AIR agents try and apprehend the Schon Queen so she will quit spreading her disease.
I love this series and am so looking forward to Noelle's book. I'll read anything that Gena Showalter writes cause she is just that good. I purchased this one my self and I give it a 4 1/2 stars.
