Paradise, love, 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 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.
Unexpected Eden by Rhenna Morgan
Opening the pages of Unexpected Eden, I immediately discovered that this is a new series I’m going to love to jump into.
Lexi Merrill is a bartender, who seems somewhat set apart from her fellow employees and patrons. She just doesn’t quite fit in. Her only real friend is an older cop that is struggling with the disappearance of his wife and child.
Eryx is the king of the Myren race. A supernatural people that were left in Eden after the creator sent humans out. Their abilities have put them in a superior position of power with full knowledge of the human world.
Eryx is draws to Lexi, but humans and Myrens can’t mix so why is she the woman of his dreams? Lexi keeps dreaming of a mysterious paradise and presence but has never discovered its origins. That all changes, the day she meets Eryx. But Eryx isn’t the only one that discovers Lexi, his rival and a traitor to his people, has also seen Lexi and she becomes a target in his plans for taking over Eden.
This was a marvelous story with fun but very sexy characters. I loved the unique world of Morgan’s imagination and can’t wait to discover more.
This was a 5 star read for me right up till the last chapter and then it dropped to 4.5 Stars. I still really enjoyed this story but found the ending extremely anticlimactic and unbefitting the rest of this story.
I received this ARC copy of Unexpected Eden from Kensington Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication December 29, 2014.
