Review: Desires Unleashed – D. N. Simmons
Natasha Hemingway’s life has always been ordinary. In truth, she prefers it that way, even thought she knows there’s more out there than meets the eye. Ever since all things pertaining to supernaturals has come out of the closet, so to speak, she’s done her best to stay away from them. In her eyes, that world doesn’t really exist, so she’s done her best to not think about it that much. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done.
Her best friend, Annette, works at Desires Unleashed, the hottest supernatural night club around run by a very sexy vampire. While Natasha has never met the guy, she still takes her friend’s claims at face value, though she’s promised herself that she’ll steer clear of vampires, werewolves, and everything else that goes bump in the night. Granted, in this day and age, it’s hard to know who’s a supernatural, and who is not. Never-the-less, she’ll give things all she’s got in hopes of keeping that world at arm’s length.
When the boundaries between the supernatural and the human world become blurred, Natasha does her best to ignore the situation at hand. Never mind that there’s a killer out there doing away with supe’s. No, that doesn’t pertain to her, or so she thinks. An unexpected accident while on an outing with Annette one night soon has her questioning whether she can hold fast to her prior beliefs in regards to the supernatural world.
As her determination unravels, she begins to realize that she’s tied to that world in more ways than one. Her unexpected dreams have allowed her to see things that haven’t quite happened yet. How this has come about, she’s not quite sure. Finding herself smack-dab in the middle of the fray, Natasha knows she’ll need to put her new skills to the test. Her world, and those of her new friends, has been threatened. If they’re to survive, she’ll need to accept the fact that the supernatural world is here to stay. Torn between what is right and what right wrong, she soon realizes that she’ll need to trust her instincts if she’s to save everyone from the killer lurking in the shadows.
I think this is the first time I’ve ever really read a M-M erotic paranormal romance. Gotta admit the storyline was quite interesting. There’s quite a few diverse characters in the story, that’s for sure, each with their own unique story to tell. I think this is a nice beginning for this series. Well-crafted, I think D. N. has put a unique spin on all things supe’s.
Desires Unleashed is the first novel in the riveting, highly-addictive and sexually-charged Knights of the Darkness Chronicles.
Experience the heart-pounding thrill of the chase in this electrifying page-turner as you uncover the mystery behind the series of gruesome killings that have been terrorizing the citizens of Chicago.
When a grisly decapitated corpse pops up on a Chicago Street, drained of blood, the highly-trained, government-funded special police force assigned two of their best detectives to the case. S.U.I.T. Detectives Warren Davis and Matthew Eric delve deep into their investigation to discover just who or what is leaving mutilated bodies in public places. They soon realize that the killer or killers is one step ahead of them and if they are going to stop the menace before another innocent human is viciously attack, they are going to need help.
Natasha Hemingway liked her life just the way it was… normal and supernatural-free. The vampires and shape-shifters were just where she wanted them to be–far away from her. All was going well until an unfortunate accident landed her in the hospital. It was then that she discovered she had an ability that could help her save countless lives. All of a sudden, she finds herself thrust into the dangerous and alluring world of the supernatural and into the arms of two very sexy and deadly vampires.
Original, gritty and sprinkled with just the right amount of humor and wit, the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles will suck you in and take you for a ride you won’t forget. You don’t want to miss out on this amazing series
