Review The Darkest Kiss by Gena Showalter

The Darkest Kiss (Lords of the Underworld,  #2)
Blurb from Goodreads:She has tempted many men...but never found her equal. Until now. 
Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death--a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him. 

But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit. Now they must defeat the unconquerable forces that control them, before their thirst for one another demands a sacrifice of love beyond imagining...

My Thoughts:
I love Anya and Lucien. Their story is amazing. Anya is this fiery Goddess who has caught the attention of Lucien the leader of the Lords of the Underworld. Lucien has been thinking about Anya since the moment she came into his life. He had not seen her only heard her voice as she set Maddox and Ashlyn free in the first book. He remembers her by her smell. Strawberries. She shows herself to him in this book and Lucien was immediately captivated. The relationship between Anya and Lucien is an amazing one! The push and pull between the two of them is great. Anya can never truly be with a lover and Lucien believes he is undeserving. This unlikely pair go through extreme trials to be together even though the odds are stacked against them. 
If anyone loves Gena Showalter I would highly recommend you pick up her Lords of the Underworld series. If you haven't already done so you need to run.. go now. and grab her Lords! They are sexy and yummy and definitely good to have on a cold winter's night! 

I give this read
