5 Hot for Hades stars

Do I really need to say anything else about this book !?! I think that picture and quote above speak volumes.

My GOD, Hades is just to die for! Mr. Rough around the edges, all action kind of man. He doesn't waste time on pleasantries or meaningless chit chat, he takes life by the balls and owns it. But what I loved most about him is that underneath it all, he loves his son and he loves his mate, and he would move heaven and hell to keep those he loves and who they love safe.

Oh My God…Where’s my FRENZY?

***Could be spoilerish if you haven't read the previous installments in the series. Best to be read in order***

I started Divine Ecstasy a little uncertain how this one would go. I mean, instead of a grumble bum Guardian finding their mate, it was a stubborn and horny God who was mating the nicest and sweetest Guardian of the bunch. Kind of seemed like a mismatch. Especially considering we’d seen the horny side of Hades (God) getting it on with a harem of women in Sea

Okay, so first off... Hades was insanely HOT!! I mean... I realize he's a God and that he's sex personified, but I thought I was prepared for how sexy he was going to be in his own book. I wasn't!! What I enjoyed the most about this male was that beyond his utterly delicious sex appeal was his other similarly attractive traits that made him even more edible. He was honorable and considerate and kind and arrogant and stubborn and magnificent! I could not get enough of him and only wish there was ...more

Sexy and satisfying as all the books in this delicious PNR series were.

Hades was everything I thought he'd be and more. Protective, intense, slightly domineering, and oh so sexy. The chemistry between him and Sacha was sizzling and the story itself engaging and fast paced.

The Guardians of the Realms series is back and doing so in style! This is a series that really needs to be read in order as its a story arc that keeps growing. I think along with other readers I had really high expectations of this book because after all Hades is a god, with godly powers and frankly as far from pious as anyone could get! Pairing him up with Guardian Sacha was a fabulous idea as she has an incredible back story.

Four to four and a half stars.

If you're anything like me, you spent Valentines Day laughing at the hapless couples who had to spend money buying obligatory gifts to each other; all whilst curled up with a delicious novel starring a delicious hero that you secretly shed a tear over because authors such as Setta Jay have ruined real men for you. I repeat: ruined.

If you've never read a single book from this series, count yourself fortunate that your senses have not been over-stimulated by the heroe

What happens when a god finds his soul mate resting in a coma? He wakes her the fuck up! LOL! Oh my lovely, sexy, funny, obnoxious Hades. I simply adore you. As soon as he realizes who Sacha is to him, it’s over. Kick out the hoes and change the sheets, ‘cause none will measure up to his beautifully broken Sacha.

Sacha, previously a slave to demented Gods, has never fully been able to let the trauma go. It’s a part of her fabric, her psyche. Waking up and finding out she now has a mate is both ex

Probably a bit spoilerish if you haven't read the other books

Picking up where we left off in the previous book Sacha is still in a coma from an unknown poison and Hades is in recovery from his battle with the mysterious warriors from another world. As he lays there recovering he can feel another soul calling out to his, it's driving him mad so he goes to investigate. When he sees Sacha, he knows she is his soulmate so he immediately heals her.

I received a copy of these books for free through NetGalley

Poor Sacha - girl has had a hard life. It was really cool reading about Hades in this setting and I liked how attentive he was towards Sacha. One of the great things about these books is how protective, sensitive, wild and caring the mates are towards each other. Like with all the other books, this is driven by the frenzy as well as a lot of action sequences and of course a cliff hanger ending.

I tried ordering a Hades of my own as soon as I was done reading and got declined. FML. I supposed I'll live vicariously through Setta Jay's awesome Guardians of the Realm books to get my daily feels of hot Alpha Male goodness.

I read this book in one sitting, literally pulled out my "Shut the Fuck up I'm reading" sign and got down to it. Bad news, the books over and life as I know it for the next oh couple months will be subpar I will endeavor to survive though for Setta.

This installment of the series was slightly different in tone than the previous once, but non the less excellent. The universe expanded with the introduction of a new realm populated with mysteries and a bunch of interesting characters with unpronounceable names (I hope the Guardians give them some cool "earthly" nicknames in the future installments). The main love story was slightly different as well - Sasha and Hades didn't have the easiest or fluffiest time getting together, but their chemist ...more

The eARC for Divine Ecstasy (The Guardians of the Realms #8) by Setta Jay was kindly provided to me for review via NetGalley.

Possible pet peeves: cliffhanger ending.

I was extremely excited to read about Hades & this book did not disappoint. The author did a fantastic job with his character. I really enjoyed reading from his POV. I didn't notice any glaring editing errors & the story had a good pace. The overall story arc continues to entertain me & I look forward to the next installment in this

I LOVED this book. I will admit I was worried because of the direction of this series. This being the 8th book of paranormal series means there's a lot of people around, BUT this still reads nicely. Not huge amounts of information or people dump. The story was very sweet and definitely a hot romance. ...more

What fun!!!

I've had a soft spot for Sacha since the start and well Hades was amazing and wonderfully arrogant and probably the funniest out of all the males so far. Some new players have just landed on the playing field and only two books left. This is going to be good. I just know it!!

I am genuinely amazed with how this series keeps getting better ✔
OMFG! That ending! That beginning! THE WHOLE THING! I'm speechless.... Just a fair warning, there will be some spoilers ahead - Read at your own risk! (But definitely READ THIS BOOK!)

So it is absolutely NO secret that I am in love with Setta Jay's Guardians of the Realms series. I've devoured each book as it came out, until this one. Why? Because, for the first time in my life I actually wanted to prolong the anticipation. Well that, and I thought that the series would be coming to an end soon s
Holy Hades that was a sexy read!

I know I shouldn't be surprised that Setta's books are sexy, they all are and I love them but this one seemed more intense!!

Hades has been awoken and met his mate Sacha, now Hades isn't a guardian like the others finding mates in this series - he is a GOD, he is powerful and he knows it! That shouldn't be a problem in seducing the woman you are destined to be with but Sacha was held by gods years ago. Pothos his son features lots in this book and his advice to his

I read this in one sitting. It was that good!

It's no wonder The Guardians of the Realms series fast became a fave of mine. It's paranormal at its best, with some Greek mythology in it; really hot and caring alpha males and strong heroines. Some I loved, others I liked, but each and every book has made me smile, swoon or fan myself.

Yay Hades ! I forgot why would he have a book and then i saw Sasha was his mate and i was like yay! It was fun being in his arrogant head and seing him getting humble thanks to Sasha. More is uncovered and the action is still intense but you can feel like Something big is coming.

Every book I read I'm super invested in the guardian who's book is the NEXT book. I was super eager to read about Hades honestly when he first came in, but this whole book, and last book, I've been obsessed with P. Now I REALLY wanted Sander to have his own book because he visually is so different from the others to me, but I won't get that so whatever, now I'm eager for P and obviously Sierra because who the hell that girl gonna get?!

“Hades, do not make me regret telling her you were okay. I like you, but fuck this up and I will rip off all your pretty feathers, shove them up your ass, and then use you as a feather duster.”

I knew Hades would get his own book at some point in this series, but I had no idea who his mate was going to be. To know it was Sacha only made it that much better!

We didn't know much about Sacha's history up until this book. We knew that she was a Teleporter (Kairos) and that she was Bastian's mot

Divine Ecstasy is book eight in the Guardians of the Realms series by Setta Jay. This series has fast become one of my favorites. I love the Guardians, the world and characters dreamed up in this spicy series.

Divine Ecstasy was not as jaw-dropping or plot oriented as previous installments. The book focuses around Sacha and Hades, with just small glimpses of what might happen in the future books. We don’t get to see many battles in this story, we end on a cliffhang

This series. Gah! While I have more than enjoyed all the male Guardian stories, I have been anxiously waiting for the next female Guardian to find a mate. We know that it is more difficult for the female Guardians to find mates because their male needs to be more powerful than themselves. Well who could be more powerful that a Guardian? A God of course! I don't know why I didn't see that one coming, but I didn't and it was a fantastic surprise f

Loved it!! I didn't think anyone would surpass Con for me in this series, but Hades did it. His fierce protection of Sasha and Pothos was so endearing. Who can resist a male that is a wonderful mate and a wonderful father?! Plus! He was super sexy. All good. Sasha was also a great female lead. She was incredibly strong and intelligent. She could be logical without completely over thinking things and ruining her life by causing undue angst and drama. She was just p

So I clearly went from book three to eight. I don't know why, it just happens to me sometimes. But that is what is so fantastic about this series, every book can be read as a stand-alone, anyways on to my review.


A god! No really a sexy, I want to so throw myself at and let him do dirty things to me, god. Hades. I loved his character, he was so different than the Guardians, yet still had that sexual charge, that attracts you to every single male character in this series.

I liked Sacha too.
