Darkest Passion (Lords of the Underworld 7)

The Darkest Passion - Gena Showalter "...you aren’t what you believe you are. You aren’t what everyone else believes. You might have delivered countless deaths but you love more fiercely than anyone I’ve ever known. You give of yourself with no thoughts to your own happiness."Awesome book. Made me cry too. If only there was no Legion in it :(Aeron and Paris see a woman screaming and running toward their fortress.She is screaming for Aeron.Thinking her a Bait, Paris goes to check the situation, but even though he knows it might be a trap, Aeron is compelled to help her.Olivia is the angel that's been following Aeron for months, and now she has fallen, her wings torn off, her body completely human and wounded from escaping from Hell.She has done it all to save Aeron's life, for refusing to kill him herself. Even though he knows what sacrifice she's made, Aeron still doesn't want her near him, but he can't stay away from her himself.The war between Hunters and the Lords is progressing, and when they find out that Olivia is the one that can help them, Aeron will be forced to work with her, and she will force him to show her all she's been missing in Heaven.She wants to have fun ;)Faced with a choice to either kill Aeron, or become fallen, Olivia decided to follow her heart and seek refuge with the Lords, and of course, Aeron.All does not go according to plan, for Aeron doesn't care about her or what she did to save him, he just wants her as far from him as possible.That doesn't work because Olivia does whatever's necessary to keep him with her, and to make him show her fun and passion.----------------------------I think Olivia might be my new favorite heroine from this series :DShe is pretty different from the others, and her seduction attempts were completely hilarious! Olivia is basically clueless, but learns fast, and she is convinced she is right for Aeron even though he pushes her away all the time :)))I admit I didn't expect what happened in the end, or near the end with her (concerning Galen) but seriously, it makes sense with everything that's been going on, for someone to suffer occasionally. They can't always win big time (even though they somehow always do :( )He carries the demon of Wrath, one that seeks justice and wants to hurt everyone that has sinned somehow.Imagine how awesome it must feel to the demon to be close to Olivia, an angel who has never ever sinned :DDDAeron is one lucky bastard ;) He just doesn't know it :DHe is convinced he will hurt every person he gets involved with, and that of course means he has to get Olivia away from him, especially because of the angel Lysander's threats.But soon, he will no longer be able to stop himself from caring for her, no matter the threat or the consequences.----------------------------First you have to know that I started this series and read four books with totally disliking Aeron. I really didn't feel anything for him, and I certainly wasn't looking forward to his book, well maybe when I read book four, there were some hints and he was getting better, but still.I did not like him.Now?Love. Seriously.Maybe it's because I love the jerkish types and he was it for the first half.Maybe it was the heroine drawing the best out of him.Maybe cause this is the hottest book in the series so far.Anyway, loved his character and what he did in the end, it made me freaking cry!! :((“I think I’ll stay here.” And you’ll like it, she projected to him. Some people didn’t know what they needed to achieve happiness. Clearly, Aeron was one of them. She’d just have to instruct him, as she’d already planned.----------------------------Concentrate. Question her. Yes. That’s what he’d do. No stripping her. Unless her clothes were too tight, then he would be doing her a favor, removing them and helping her breathe.Concentrate, damn you.----------------------------“Fuckers,” William grumbled in his ear. “Those two are mine. They went for my sweet, innocent little kidneys.”There was nothing sweet or innocent about William. Not even his kidneys.This would have been my first 5 star rating for this series... if only there wasn't a character named Legion in it.I couldn't stand her before, can't stand her now, and honestly her whole relationship with Aeron (even before) was UBER-freaky and weird. I don't care if he thinks of her as a daughter, it's just weird! Plus, everything she did in this book just got on my nerves cause she's just a total b*tch! OMG! So yes, I'm sorry cause I totally loved this book but I just can't give it 5 stars cause Legion irritated the sh*t out of me :((((((BUT!That scene at the end with her was great, and I think I could stand her only if she keeps that attitude :DOK that's done, on to the next bit...This is the hottest book in the series. I am very happy cause it looks like the author is getting better at writing the sex and it was really yummy here, totally loved it :)The big storyline in the series is moving on as well, the artifact thing, and for some reason I am thinking she's gonna make Galen a good guy in the end and I don't want that. I hate that she always has to make everything turn out good and great.William!!!!!!!! Ok now I seriously can't wait for his book!!!! OMG that little teaser was wicked and I'm hoping he'll be with her in the end :DDD I can't wait!!!!!!!Gideon!!!!!! Now that was interesting!!!!! Can't wait for his book, I think it's next!The ending... It made me cry. Really did, it was uber emotional.But!I don't like it how everything has to be perfect. It isn't believable in the universe they live in, that every single time everything ends completely fantastic and great and uber happy.I am a HEA girl but I don't need everything that sugared up, this is a PNR series that's pretty dark and gah, I guess for me it just isn't believable. And so, this was an almost-5-star read, but I still loved it and I'm uber-happy to still be into this series after five books :)))
