Pleasure Unbound

This is the first novel of the Demonica by Larissa Ione and the story of Tayla and Eidolon.

Tayla Mancuso was born addicted to drugs, thanks to her drug addict mother. Tossed from foster home to foster home, Tayla learned to keep to herself and never allow anyone or anything to get close to her. Finally at the age of 14 her mother cleaned herself up and regained custody of Tayla. For two years Tayla lived a life of normalcy. That normalcy was blown away the day Tayla came home and found a demon attacking her mother. This demon tied Tayla to a chair and forced her to watch as he brutalized and finally killed her mother.

Tayla was again thrown into the foster homes, where finally fed up with all of it, Tayla ran away. She ended up in an alley with a fellow foster child and they watched as a group of demons were confronted by a group of humans, and the humans beat back the demons, killing them. This group of humans was known as The Aegis. And from that day on Tayla was a demon slayer.

Eidolon is responsible for the first ever demon hospital. This hospital can not be seen my humans, it is a safe haven for all manner of demons. No judgement is passed on anyone who comes in those doors - Eidolon patches up everyone. Sometimes to the astonishment of his own brothers.

One night Tayla is brought into the hospital. She had been fighting a demon and both she and the demon were picked up by the demon hospital's ambulance. Much to his brothers' disbelief, Eidolon patches Tayla up and sends her to a room to recover. His brothers and other staff members think Tayla should be killed outright. She is human and a slayer on top of that. But something inside her calls to Eidolon.

This was a very good book - but I must say - it is full of SEX. Full of it!!! So be warned.

I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one, it is about another one of the brothers.

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. :)
