As one of the twelve Guardians of the Realms, Urian has spent the last several centuries in a constant battle to keep the inhabitants of Earth’s Realms under control.

4 voyeuristic games stars



Uri and Alexandra were bound to come together, centuries of playing voyeuristic games that left a need that they will soon find out could only be filled or sated by one another. Being the first pair to ever go through a mating ceremony, it leaves too much unknown where the pasts are dark and the insecurities high. They need to let go and trust the bond they have and let fate guide them.

I began this series with book two, not really sure how I managed that, but in any eve

Keep eating me up with those eyes, little goddess, and I'll be so deep inside that hot little pussy you won't remember what you came her for.

With a title and cover like that, you have to wonder how well a book will deliver on the erotic element that's promised. In the case of this book book, no worries are needed. Ecstasy Unbound starts out with a bang, and concludes with one too. I'm sure you get my drift here...

But dirty in the most delicious way, of course.

4 "Ecstasy Guaranteed" Stars

Ecstasy Unbound is a paranormal romance full of erotica, action, and romance. Setta Jay has created a magical world full of vampires, guardians, dragonesque creatures, and more unearthly beings! I thoroughly enjoyed every second that I spent exploring this world.

There is a lot wrong with this book.

Info dumping is hard at work in the first 25%. And even with all the info that got dumped on me, I still have no idea about a lot of what happened in this. Weird words are thrown about constantly without any explanation, one hundred characters are introduced when they have little to no importance to the story and the lore is never fully explained. I guess I'm just meant to know what all the different races are, what they specialize in and where they come from?

RATING: 3.5-4 Scorching Hearts!! :D <3

Ecstasy Unbound is carnal and addicting. Setta Jay does a superb job of building a world that is in equal measure intriguing and seductive. The paranormal aspect is wonderfully balanced with the romance, which is a huge plus for me. We have immortals, Greek gods, hell hounds, demons, dragons, shifters. You name it, and its in this book. And best of all, it never gives off the feeling of being overly crowded.

The erotica...well...there’s menage, voyeurism,

FOUR STARS TO FOUR AND A HALF STARS!



When I first heard about this series, I was told that ice was sorely needed for inflamed ovaries. Being the natural doubter that I am, I scoffed at all the warnings and dived head first into the first official book, having teased myself with the novella and lulling myself into a false sense of security. Knowing what I now know, if I had a chance to do this all over again, I would definitely do this right here, straight at my ovaries.

I am not sure how I feel about this book - even now. This book caused me quite a bit of RAGE.

The prologue was a bit confusing - there was a huge info dumping session that almost left me reeling. We have the Greek pantheon (again. Why is everyone so obsessed with the Greek Pantheon????! Why not some Egyptian gods? Or Asian? Or something.) but instead of being up to their usual tricks almost all of them became tainted with some unexplained dark energy. They

I knew going in that this book contained MFM and following a review that said there was one scene right in the beginning I thought, quite naively, that it wouldn't be between the main couple. And that first scene wasn't. Don't get me wrong I like reading ménage and MFM or MMF but I want all parties involved to be mated/love each other. But even though all the sex scenes were excruciatingly hot,

And I actually had already purchased this one. I'm funny.

This is going to be a great series. Uri is seriously smoking hot, and Alex is strong and doesn't really see all of her potential. They are amazing together. Plus Alex's brothers are hot and then there's all the other Guardians..I may melt.

This series is reminding me of series by Larissa Ione, Gena Showalter, and Elisabeth Naughton all of which I love. Gods, demi-gods, immortals, and a whole bunch of "other worldly" b

Upon starting Ecstasy Unbound, I was immediately drawn into this world of Gods and Demi Gods. These Guardians of the Realms were a welcome return to PNR for me. I settled in and really sunk into this story. I want to start off in saying that overall, I really liked this and will continue reading. I am hooked on the plot and the ongoing storyline, and I can’t wait to see where this goes. The characters are great. It’s a good combo of sexy, sweet, fierce alphas and smart, courageous, beautiful wom ...more

Wow

When I first started this book, I actually thought it was a hardcore erotic book...but it was so much more. Not to say there weren't some intense sexual play, ménage...etc. but it also had a lot of suspense. I really loved the characters, especially Alex. She was a very strong female lead and I loved the deep pull and attraction between her and Uri.

I have to thank my Goodreads friend Pam, for introducing me to this series!

This is a new series written by Setta Jay it's an Erotic PNR book and worth picking up, I really enjoyed this book.

As with all new series there has to be world building done, it's not my favourite part but is necessary, but the author adds in some hot sex to keep it fun.

Alex and her brothers live on earth and are Demi-gods and kick ass, literally they are highly skilled at helping others, which is good as the Guardians are unable to inflict pain on others, if they do they'll feel it a lot more.

Mindy Lou's Book Review
This is going on my favorites and re-reads lists. I thoroughly enjoyed the creativity of this paranormal story, the steamy hot love scenes and the possessive alpha men! I'm thrilled to know there are 7 more books in this series already published and waiting for me to read. The ending of book one is a prelude into book two and all I can say is wow! Loved it!

This is a paranormal erotica book and the author is focused on this two parts! The story is full of mythical creatures and fantasy. The plot is also good although kind of slow in the first 30%. On the other hand, the setting of this world had to be prepared and Ms. Jay tried her best to do so. The writing is ok and few time kind of repetitive. The book is written on third person and it's always clear for who the author wr

Setta Jay… you dirty little bird you! I likey : )) What a fantastic start to what Im sure will be an amazing series. You know how you can tell you’re reading a fantasy? Its not the telekinesis or the transporting from realm to realm. Its not that there are Gods and Demi-Gods or mating frenzy’s or even hell hounds. Nope. How you can tell you’re reading a fantasy, is when a man tells you that he will financially support your shoe habit and he means it. I think I fell a little bit more in love with ...more

Wow. I love it when I come across a book that has good reviews and an interesting blurb and it turns out to all be true! This book was fabulous! An intriguing storyline and twist on old mythology, which I love, and great writing. The characters were captivating and the sex... Holy Hellhound Batman was it HOT! I didn't want to put it down! I was drawn in from page one until the last word, which made me sad cuz it was over. There were a bevy of characters introduced and I must admit that there we ...more

Page scorching, Ecstasy Unbound is a power packed erotic paranormal romance.

Gods, demigods, and all those supernatural creatures in between fill a cast of this action intense plot. Speaking of plots, there is a very strong plot, lots of world building and enough heat to burn the pages right out of your hands, Setta Jay has created the perfect balance of storytelling and erotica.

No gentle romance here, the content is adult only and graphic.

An explosive erotic paranormal romance that simply sizzles!

From the sounds of the blurb, this kind f story is right up my alley and most of it was. 75% of this book made me want to rate it 5 stars. I am absolutely in love with the first 5% and the last 70%. It was super steamy, sensually erotic, with a fast paced story and a super sweet love story. The 25% in the beginning of the book really dragged for me and made me almost DNF. Really the only reason I kept going was because I've read so many good reviews from some of my trusted reader friend

Well, well...To be honest I wasnt in the mood for Paranormal/Fantasy book but with that cover I couldnt resist the urge to read it.

Ecstasy Unbound is an highly erotic-paranormal-romance. And I can say that this book is satisfying.

Alexandra is a Goddess and she is one of those kick-ass heroins. But she is lonely at the same time. She has two brothers but she desires more than some familial closeness. I love Alex a lot. She is sweet, strong and a little dangerous. Ano

I am a huge lover of paranormal romance and had this author recommended to me but had no idea just how erotic her writing would be. As this is the first book there's an awful lot of world building and creatures,names Demi gods etc to get to grips with which is necessary I know but a bit tedious. What really made me sit up and take notice though was the uber hot initial ménage scene which was a complete surprise! Yes much more erotic than I expected but then the characters started to make themsel ...more

An interesting twist on the fate of the Greek Gods/Goddesses, I really enjoyed the world building in this book. Given that this is a first book in a series there is a lot of information to take in but I found it all interesting and didn't find it overwhelming.

The H/h in this book are Uri a Guardian and Alex a demi-goddess and the scenes between the two were definitely steamy but there was so much happening that not enough time was spent focussing on their relationship IMHO. There are 12 Guardia

The world building is astonishing and unique but it took time to adjust to the characters, plot and writing. The beginning of the book is soooo stea
