Meet the Author:
My name is Nikki Narvaez. I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX, where I currently live with my husband, our two dogs, Bella and Oreo, and our cat, Cupcake. I have been teaching for four years, but I hope to become a full-time writer and stay at home mom one day. I am 27 years old, and have three older sisters who have blessed me with four nephews and one niece. In my free time, I love to write and play Texas Hold 'Em poker.
Teaser:We went back upstairs to our room, where Brielle headed straight for the balcony doors, opening them and letting the crisp, ocean breeze flow into our room. She walked out and propped her arms on the banister of the balcony railing as she gazed out over the sea. I walked up behind her, wrapping my arms around her, placing them on top of hers and pressing our bodies together. Her emotions were everywhere, consisting of concern, fear, anger, and guilt. I rubbed her arms, letting my touch wash over her in an attempt to erase the feelings plaguing her. She leaned back into me as she sighed, “Jace, I -” “Shh, mi amante,” I whispered in her ear, cutting her off. “Don't worry about anything right now. Let's enjoy this last bit of peace together before we are thrown back into chaos.” Surprisingly, she didn't try to argue. Her body relaxed against me and she pulled my arms to wrap around her waist before laying hers on top of mine. Our bond thrived as we held one another, the electricity humming over our skin and cocooning us in our love while drowning out the rest of the world until there was nothing but us. I dipped my head down before grazing my lips along Brielle's neck. Every feeling was intensified with our connection so intricately synchronized, and I could feel our desire increasing with each intoxicating touch. My hands traveled to her sides before trailing under her shirt to touch her silky skin. They moved upwards to capture her supple breasts, the nipples of which were already hardened with arousal. Her hands had made their way to the back of my head, fisting themselves in my hair as my mouth laved her delicate neck. My cock stiffened with desire from the sensations of touching and tasting her, pressing against her ass as soft moans escaped her. I trailed one of my hands down her stomach before slipping under the waistband of her shorts and beneath the lacy fabric of her panties. Her sex was drenched with her desire, and I let my fingers play within her moist, delicate folds. I bit her earlobe lightly as I growled, “Fuck, you are so wet for me already, baby.” She moaned again as continued to intricately trace my fingers along her pussy. Gods, I wanted to taste her desire so badly. I spun her around, moving my hands to unbutton her shorts and pull them off before removing her panties. She went for my jeans, but I pushed her hands away and shook my head as I rumbled, “I wanna taste you, baby; need to taste how much you want me before I fuck you.” I grabbed her hips and propped her on the railing of the balcony before kneeling before her and gripping her hips to keep her from falling. I pulled her closer, until her ass was on the edge of the railing before draping each of her legs over my shoulders and giving her a mischievous smirk, “Hold on.” My tongue slowly traced the insides of her thighs, which were damp with her desire. I greedily savored her sweetness as I slowly inched closer to her apex. I took my time, slowly licking within her folds and nibbling her clit. I pulled and teased it with my teeth as she writhed against me before plunging my tongue within her core. She moaned loudly as more of her nectar flooded my mouth, her pussy already pulsing around my tongue as she neared orgasm. I moved my hands from her hips to her ass, gripping tightly and pulling her closer as I devoured her, my tongue delving deep inside until she shuddered her release against my mouth. I eagerly suckled the rest of the sweet juices from her sex, licking it clean before I stood. I kept my hands supporting her as she slowly eased off the railing and stood on shaky legs. I was far from done with her. Just in case we might not make it out of the Underworld, I wanted to savor every second I had with her, and I was going to spend the rest of the day doing exactly that. I stripped off her shirt, tossing it to the deck of the balcony with the rest of her clothes before inching her back against the railing, pressing my body against hers. She hurriedly pulled my shirt off before undoing the button of my shorts and sliding them down my legs, along with my boxer-briefs. I turned her around before pushing her down until she was bent over the railing. I spread her legs apart from behind as I eased my cock to her slick entrance. She groaned as I slowly entered her, clutching the railing with both hands as I began to thrust inside her. One of my hands held onto her hip, and the other trailed up her back to grab her hair, which had curtained over her shoulders and spread down her back, her head tilted upwards while moaning my name. I grunted, “You like that, baby? Like when I fuck you like this?” Her cries of pleasure grew louder as she moaned, “Yes, baby. I love it when you fuck me!” Damn, she was so sexy when she sounded like that. All the noises emanating from her were slowly unraveling my control, especially when combined with the amazing sensations of our bond. As I felt my release approaching, I stopped, wanting to watch her face as I made her come. I carefully turned her over, supporting her body, making sure to stay within her warmth as her legs were wrapped around me and her back was against the railing. I resumed my thrusts, bracing one hand on the railing while the other gripped her ass as I plunged in and out of her. I leaned down to take her breast in my mouth as my gaze traveled up to her face. She arched against me, supporting herself on the balcony with her elbows while moans of pleasure escaped her open mouth as her eyes closed in ecstasy. Her pussy throbbed around me as we both neared climax. I pulled her off the balcony and carried her to our bed, laying her down on the edge and inching her back until we reached the center of the mattress. I resumed my thrusts as I claimed her mouth, our tongues joining instantly as we devoured one another. Our hands frantically roamed over each other's bodies as Brielle took me deeper and deeper into her center, taking everything I was giving her. Her pussy tightened around my shaft as she climaxed. The throbbing of her walls against my cock and her throaty moans sent me into ecstasy, my cum coating her walls with my release. I rolled to my side, panting heavily to catch my breath, but Brielle continued to roll us until she was on top of me with my dick still enclosed inside her. Her hair was wild with damp curls and sweat glistened over her skin. She looked down at me through hooded eyes, causing my cock to harden again. “My turn."
So I was left with a pretty big cliffhanger after Envisioned. I mean Hades.. seriously! GAH! And just as I was starting to feel more relaxed after everything went down with those damn elders.. BAM!! FREAKING HADES!!! DAMN IT!!!
Okay, let me back up. So from the get go, I was a little perturbed that Jace and Brielle were instant soul mates in Envisioned. I wasn't too sure how that was going to play into things. But, it plays into EVERYTHING! The twin flame thing is such an important factor in so much! They feed into each other in so many ways. Anyway, Hades, that bastard, has kidnapped Brielle, right in front of Jace's eyes. The heartbreak.. the utter devastation he feels. I felt so sorry for him. But he has a timeline and friends to go with him to get her back. And he has to get her back, he can't live without her, literally. And well, this is Jace , and he's hot and full of awesomeness, so he has to live. Not to mention being apart is going to slowly kill them... okay okay, I know what you're thinking.
Okay, whew.. I'm calm now. So Jace has assembled his friends to go to the Underworld to save Brielle. All the while, Hades is torturing her. I did get a little bit of a giggle out of that part. Not so much because of the torture, but because of her spunk. Even being tortured she's still cussing him out. I loved it. She is truly a spitfire. Okay, so Jace and Brielle now can't talk to each other. But he has to navigate the ways of the Underworld to save her. Easy peasy, right? Yeah... right.. But thank the Gods, he has Zane. I swear that man was like a walking Greek Mythology historian. Keep him around! So all of them are trying to get to Brielle and save her. But they don't only have to save her from Hades. And this was where I got pissed. Now we have yet ANOTHER God who wants to hurt her for her powers. What the hell!
When they get back from the Underworld, you think that is all that is going to happen right? They have won?! I was all excited. Relaxing. Thinking it's all going to be rainbows and butterflies. Of course not!! Hermes wants her now. So now he is hunting her. And of course he will use any means necessary. Throw in a little hostage situation with Hades, and these people have their hands full. I was seriously getting pissed! Like good lord, these Gods are coming out of the damn wood work to get her powers and kill her! Can't they catch a break anywhere?!! Of course, once you think one God is down, another pops up wanting her powers using any means necessary to get them.. ARE YOU SERIOUS!!
GAH! So obviously, there is a ton ton ton of drama in this book. And well, obviously there is some serious steamy hot sex. Dude, do you remember what Jace looks like?? Yeah, it's not something you easily forget. Homeboy is HOT! Anyway if you are into mythology and looking for a hot steamy sequel. You maaaay want to look into this series. And let me warn you. If you thought book 1 had a cliffhanger... uh uh.. nope. Prepare yourself for one hell of a cliffhanger ending. I gave this 3.5 hearts.
