Akori wants nothing to do with this whole mate business. Some of his fellow warriors may have succumbed to what Ra deems an inescapable fate, but Akori knows better. If he can avoid placing himself in a situation where destiny can gain the upper hand, he’ll be fine. No problem. What he doesn’t count on is fate showing up on his doorstep.
Jordan didn’t expect to find the added bonus of a hotter-than-hell man while out scouting photo shoot locations, but her artistic eye knows what sin in jeans looks like, and this guy is it. Used to taking the backseat to her models, she’s pleasantly surprised when Akori looks at her with hunger in his eyes.
But as things heat up, danger approaches, and Jordan discovers she must not only accept Akori for what he truly is, but also save him from a fate worse than death.
In the book Embrace the Hunger Marisa Chenery once again weaves her magic. As we watch this series unfold we get to meet Ra’s chosen warriors and see them each find their mates. In this book it is Akori’s turn to find his mate. Never one to settle down with just one woman Akori has always fought it with all that he has but when he meets Jordan everything changes.
I loved Akori right from the start, he is a great man inside and out. He falls hard for Jordan and we get to see just how far he would go to protect her. Jordan is a wonderful woman who is able to stand on her own two feet yet is as strong as Jordan. Even so, she still longs for a man to share her life with.
The love that grows between Akori and Jordan was wonderful. As the family of warriors and mates grows so does the family bond that is shared between them all. I enjoyed seeing the couples from the previous books still in the picture and still in love.
With characters so deep with emotions Embrace the Hunger is a book that should not be missed. Marisa Chenery adds a little bit of everything to her stories even a little humor now and than. I just loved the problem Akori has with his pants during the photo shoot. Now that was a great scene.
Each book in this series has been a wonderful read and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment in this series.
