SUMMARY: {From goodreads}
In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life... She's a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life. Two lovers will dare to risk all.Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his quest to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul...

THOUGHTS/OPINION:
Finally I was able to sit down and enjoy this book. And yes it is as good as everyone before me said it was. And yes I regret that I waited so long to read it.
The plot moved along at a good pace. I didn’t feel there was any one spot that I was yanked out of the story. I did enjoy the little twist and turns and I like how it ended. Left me begging/panting for more LOL!

Things I enjoyed:
Without giving too much away I have to say I enjoyed the overall plot and that in itself is something wonderful. Because this is a plot that she going to use through the next two books so getting me hooked on it was a sure thing I would buy the others.
I have to say I am usually a hero driven girl but this time I actually enjoyed the tough as nails heroine. I really felt she was believable the things she did, the situation she handled and the reactions she gave for each situation fit her character and I liked it. This is very rare for me seeing how I don’t usually like the heroine at all.
I enjoyed the brothers. They weren’t perfect by any means but they weren’t so unbelievably bad that I couldn’t sympathize with them. I really can’t wait to read their stories.

Things I didn’t care for:
You know strangely enough nothing is sticking out in my mind that I didn’t care for. Usually I don’t like the whole doctor story b/c I work in a hospital and they usually get it wrong or they amp up the drama. But this time I was sucked in from the beginning and hung on through out the whole thing.

Are you keeping it or passing it on? Keeping

SCORE: 10 out of 10

Anything Else: Um yeah I’ve already bought the other two in this series via pre-order it was that good. Can’t wait!
