Review: Enraptured by Elisabeth Naughton

ORPHEUS—To most he’s an enigma, a devil-may-care rogue who does whatever he pleases whenever he wants. Now this loose cannon is part of the Eternal Guardians­—elite warriors assigned to protect the human realm—whether he likes it or not.

Orpheus has just one goal: to rescue his brother from the Underworld. He’s not expecting a woman to get in the way. Especially not a Siren as gorgeous as Skyla. He has no idea she’s an assassin sent by Zeus to seduce, entrap, then ultimately destroy him.

Yet Skyla herself might have the most to lose. There’s a reason Orpheus feels so familiar to her, a reason why her body seems to crave him. Perhaps he’s not the man everyone thinks… The truth could reveal a deadly secret as old as the Eternal Guardians themselves. description taken from here.

You can read an excerpt on Naughton's website.

ENRAPTURED is the 4th book in the Eternal Guardians series.  Before this book, the only other book in this series I have read was TEMPTED.  (MARKED is the 1st book and ENTWINED is the 2nd.)  When I read TEMPTED (which I say this book because it is the 3rd book in the series but the first one I have read), I wasn't confused with any of the plots or characters, so if you haven't previously read any of the books in the series, I wouldn't worry about it, you will understand it just fine.  

I really enjoy this series.  I met Orpheus in the previous book and he seemed like a scheming trouble-maker.  But, even so, his character had a certain charm and I liked the way he interacted with the other characters.  Because of this combination in his personality, I was excited to get my hands on his book and see more of his quirkiness.  Skyla was as equal as appealing in character.  Her personality was a great match for Orpheus and was fun to read about.  The plot definitely kept my attention, and the attraction between Orpheus and Skyla was well written.  I still haven't gotten around to picking up the other 2 previous books in the series, but I am going to keep following this series.

**I was sent a copy of the book in order to write a real and honest review. I was not paid to write this review. All opinions are my own.**
