4.5 Fantastic STARS

"Mates~Each Immortal has a rare and destined mate, their powers meld and they become stronger pairs that are able to procreate, usually after a decade."

After reading Ecstasy Claimed, it appears that I have discovered another PRN Series that I am dying to swallow up. The characters are magically enhanced with super powers, they are passionate about their mates, they are loyal to their friends, and they have one goal and that is to protect themselves and the human realm from evi

*** SO EXCITED!! Just received a signed copy of Ecstasy Claimed in the mail. Love Setta Jay for sending me this particular story. I really enjoyed Gregoire and Alyssa's story and I got excited when they popped up in subsequent stories. Gregoire is possessive and extremely territorial...just the way I like them :-) ♥

I felt peace for the first time. From you. You, love.

Alyssa has had enough of letting her parents, her responsibilities and her insecurities get in her way. Deciding for once in her life to take matters into her own hands, she takes a much needed trip away with her best friend and give away the one thing she despises; her virginity. She is a mate of a Guardian, a man who decided she was too weak to claim and not worthy of her place by his side.... or at least that

It was your beautiful green eyes I saw every fucking time in the last five years. You were a hunger that ate at my gut every fucking day. Now that I have you, it's even more intense. It's not enough to have you. My beast wants the world to know you're mine. It's making me obsessed with showing the world you're mine.

After witnessing his brother, Uri, find his mate, Gregoire is tired of waiting for his own. See, he already had a mate. He's known of her since she was born twenty-five years ago. But after hearing her father's concerns and seeing how very young she seemed, he gave her time to really come into womanhood. Unfortunately for him, she accidentally found out about their mating and that he hasn't come for her, despite the fact that she's five years past her time for claiming.

Aw man, I'm a bit disappointed with this one. I fell in love with Gregoire in the first book, I thought he would be really cool and fun and all but then he got all overly possessive with his chick. He didn't like her even hugging her friend. It got annoying and old real fast. * Sigh*But I have high hopes for the second one, I love Rain. ...more

Spoiler alert. This review is a big pile of spoilers!

I have so many problems with the main couple here, I don't know where to start. Our main humping-joe ,Gregoire, is the forerunner of abusive jerks. He has known that Alyssa ,main kiddo, is his mate since she was a baby. He waits till she grows up and then gives her an extra 5 years after her coming of age. Do they tell her that her mate is known but he wishes her to experience life before the mating? Of course they don't. Instead they ma

Alyssa is tired of living under the hard hand of her parents and their overprotective ways. Also, being a mate to a man who hasn’t claimed her as really killed her self-esteem. She needs to reenergize, to take her life into her own hands, so she plans a trip with her friend Rain, to a place where she plans to lose her virginity.
Gregoire has waited many years to claim is mate. It’s not because he hasn’t craved her or wanted to take her, it’s because of his respect for his old friend, her father.
Tanja ~ KT Book Reviews
Gregoire and Alyssa. He is a dirty talking Guardian who has been lucky enough to find his mate early on. He has kept her sheltered and safe, hidden away until she becomes of age. She has just discovered that she has a mate - only he has been busy guarding the Realms and doing whoever he pleases as she has been kept in the dark. An impulsive visit to the island of pleasure should help her get what she wants. Oh, it most definitely will guys! Funny and sexy with a side of comeuppance! Loved it!

After really enjoying Hidden Ecstasy and Ecstasy Unbound I was excited to read Gregoire's story and had high hopes for this book. Unfortunately I didn't love it as much as I expected to, this series is all about the sexy alpha heroes which is normally a huge bonus for me but there is a BIG difference between a sexy alpha guy and an alpha asshat and I'm afraid Gregoire swung too far into the second territory for me to ever fall for him. He has known Alyssa is his mate since he first saw her as a ...more

So much sex. So, so much!!

But you know what else is going on here? Actual plot! And I'm kind of engaged in the story and enjoying it. I'm not really sure when that happened or how to be honest but I'm happy to keep reading. Not sure if I'll be able for all 10 in a row as I think that might be too much smexy time even for me, but we shall see.

I'm not sure Gregoire's brand of sexy talk was for me but he had some interesting voyeurism kinks that were inter

I'm reading the arc of this right now and HOLY HELL is it HOT!!!!!!
Seriously freaking hot!
I really liked the first book but it doesn't even come close to the level of this one...
Gregoire is one dirty talking, possessive, alpha of a man.
3 stars
I didn't care much for the heroine. The hero isn't any better. He knows she's his mate but he'd rather make her wait so he can sleep around some more.
Not my cup of tea.
Thinking about writing this review was so difficult because I honestly didn’t know which way to approach it. I finished the book last night and I couldn’t get my thoughts together. With all the reviews out there I hope no one throws stones at me. I tried, I really did! So here we go….

I had to fight myself to give this read 3 Stars. The reasons are these (didn’t mean for this to be a rant):

Loved this super sexy, hot ride. Sometimes it's hard to keep all the characters and species straight, but I'll confess, this was mostly about the sexy times for me. I did like Gregoire and Alyssa a lot. Also, Sam and Erik have a lot of page time and I like them a lot too. I'm happy they're mated. (view spoiler) On to the next hot ride, Denying Ecstasy.

After the wonderful ride I was given with book one, Ecstasy Unbound, I was looking forward to Ecstasy Claimed and finding out what Gregoire had in store for me, and he did not disappoint.

Unbeknownst to his fellow guardians, Gregoire found his mate when she was a tiny little infant. Because she was the daughter of a good friend who was concerned about Gregoire’s dominant tendencies and personality, he allowed himself to be talked into waiting to claim Alyssa even after she reached maturity. This

This is book 2 in the Guardians of the Realms series and I dived straight in after finishing book 1. In this book we get the story of Gregoire and his fated mate Alyssa. Gregoire has known for years that Alyssa was to be his but nobody had told her, when she finds out she is angry that she didn't know and assumes that Gregoire didn't want her since he hasn't claimed her. So she takes herself off to a paradise island to enjoy the things she has been missing in her sheltered life. Gregoire doesn't

Ecstasy Claimed is Book 2 in Setta Jay's Guardians of the Realm series. I recently finished Book 1 and this one was just as good! Actually, Ecstasy Claimed may have been better since there was no big information dump and because I was already familiar with some of the players.

I liked Alyssa. She's a standard, regular Immortal. She can shift into a war horse, which was cool, but since she's so small in stature, her horse is more of a war pony...

This the second book in The Guardians of the Realms series is most certainly not for those seeking a sweet romance because this is without doubt what my mother would describe as a dirty book! Numerous erotic scenes that are mind blowing and I'm guessing pretty unobtainable for mere mortals such as I. Yes this author sure does turn up the heat but is there an interesting story here? Happily yes as what began in Ecstasy Unbound is expanded here and as I now know the players and the worlds the auth ...more

Read more reviews at A Lust for Reading. I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

Gregoire has known about his mate for 25 years. Yet even though he could have claimed her five years ago, he waited, knowing she was still too young to handle him. That hasn't stopped him from wanting her though. Desperately. But he has had to settle for watching her from a far; needing to keep his distance to avoid setting off their mating frenzy.

Alyssa has just learned that her parents have been keeping

Okay, first up... Probably more of a 4 1/2*

We met dominating, alpha Gregoire in the first book and ever since I have been dying to get my eyes on him. He certainly wasn't a let down. We are talking some pure, Grade A, bonfire of the panties, Alpha-ness.
We find out that the insatiable, king of dirty talking has actually had a 'mate' that he's known about for the last 25 years and left unclaimed while he made his way through an all you can eat buffet of bimbos.

Igniting the pages with erotic romance, Ecstasty Claimed is a vividly descriptive jaunt into the supernatural world of the “Guardians of the Realm”.

Greogoire has guarded the human realm from evil for centuries knowing his mate existed. When he receives a call from his mates family, he rushes only to discover that his mate has run away.

Alyssa has always held the fairy tale dream of having a true mate. When she discovers that her family has misled her and her mate hasn’t claimed her, Alyssa feels
Are you looking for a book that sucks you in, makes you hot and pulls at your heart, look no further pick up setta jays new series.

This is book 2 and I would recommend reading Ecstasy Unbound (The Guardians of the Realms, #1) by Setta Jay and even the prequel Hidden Ecstasy (Guardians Of The Realms, #0.5) by Setta Jay . It just means when starting Gregoire's story you know the backstory and have already got to know the guardians.

Gregoire has known he has a mate for 25 years, but he has had to wait for the right time to claim her. Alyssa has felt rejected by the men in her community, so decides to go on hol

This book was the better of the two I've read. i've been reading them in order but they seem to be OK as stand alones thus far.
I really like the love story between the guardian & his mate. I'm very interested & look forward to Dorian & Rain's story. This was a strong 3 stars rating & I look forward to reading the rest of this series.

I honestly didn't think I was going to like Gregoire as much because I fell in love with Uri but I was so wrong. The minute the book started I was hooked and I realized that his surly attitude in Ecstasy Unbound was because he already knew about his mate and wasn't claiming her yet.

Jay's world building is almost as good as her sex scenes. I'm so intrigued by the realms and what happens in the different cities, so it was great getting to go to several different areas in Tetartos. Not to mention,
