Hello everyone, Kyra here sharing this week’s “Books Kicking Ass” with a book that sucked me in and refused to let go until the very end: UNEXPECTED EDEN by Rhenna Morgan. And while I was supposed to be writing, I’d been wanting to read this one since it released and could wait no longer. So I cracked the cover…and couldn’t put it down. Here’s the blurb:
Paradise, love and power. . .and a prophecy with a price.
Most people believe Eden no longer exists. Lexi Merrill’s about to learn they’re wrong. A hard-working bartender with a self-sufficient backbone and a wary nature, she knows pickup lines like a second language. So, when Eryx Shantos barges into her world with too-smooth words and a body to back it up, she locks up her libido and vows to keep her distance.
Eryx has other ideas. As king of the Myren race, Eryx is duty-bound to enforce the laws preventing exposure of their existence to humans. Yet The Fates have led him through his dreams to Lexi, a temptation he doesn’t want to resist. The question is, is she Myren, or human – which makes her forbidden fruit?
When Eryx’s nemesis tags Lexi as his next target, Eryx insists on taking her home where he can keep her safe. Lexi had no idea “home” would mean the one-and-only land of creation. . .or that she’d trigger a prophecy that could doom her newfound race.
Why this book kicked ass:
I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for a strong-willed heroine. Someone who doesn’t buckle during difficult times, but rather juts their chin out and says, “Bring it.” This was Lexi. I also love a strong alpha who’s battling their own demons but puts the safety and concern for their woman above all else. This was Eryx. The supporting cast was terrific, too, and the world-building of Eden nicely done. Author Rhenna Morgan is an amazing writer as well as a kickass supporter of other authors (and an absolute blast to follow on FB and Twitter. Seriously, you’ve got to check out her social media pages. You will NOT be disappointed…). As an added bonus, Unexpected Eden just went on sale on Amazon for 99cents!
99cents!!!! Where else can you find a fantastic escape for 99cents??
So while you all run out to grab your copy, I’ll go back to my writing cave…and wait on pins and needles for book 2 in the Eden series, HEALING EDEN, to release. Have a fantastic week, everyone.
