Never met a male siren before?

You’re about to….

I grew up as a prince…

And lead the life of a King.

There isn’t anyone or anything that doesn’t want me, that isn’t attracted to me. They can’t help it. And I sure as hell don’t want them to. I live for their lust, I crave touch like an addiction, I make them beg on their knees for one, simple, caress.

As a male siren it’s my job to feed off emotion.

And I was happy to do it.

I am happy to do it.

What I’m not happy about? Being told I have to mate with some withering human and stay loyal to that one person for the next few centuries. There’s a war coming and being the idiot I am–I offered to take one for the team in order to help a friend.

Now my sexual appetite is taking a freaking kick in the nuts.

And I’m left wondering if it’s worth it.

If she’s worth it, with messy hair and dirty human hands.

But I have a world to save.

A job to do.

Now, if only, she would just let me do it rather than fighting me at every turn. I’ve lived lifetimes as the most irresistible being on the planet.

Only to meet my match.

With one.



They say hells hot. They’re wrong.

Because Hope, my little human, is way hotter.

And before this is over–she may just singe me alive.

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Alex is probably the last being on earth who you’d expect to commit to one person. He’s too vain, too pretty, and too selfish. He’s also a siren. The immortals need all the help they can get, so they need to mate. Alex has to reach his full potential, and in order to do that, he needs Hope.

Hope has been watering the plants for the immortals for as long as she can remember. She thought she was about to get a promotion, but she ends up getting mated to Alex.

Alex was incredibly frustrating. He knew he had feelings for Hope, but he just wouldn’t admit it to himself. For someone who is so sure of himself, he had a lot of insecurities.

Hope was really cute and likable. I was so relieved that she didn’t give up on Alex so easily. She fit with Alex, because she gave love so easily, and she had so much of it to give.

I really like how Alex and Hope’s story had a twist to it. I thought they were lacking time to get to know and love each other, but with that twist, I got it.

Mason is next, and I hope he gets his happily ever after. He’s been so lonely without his mate, and I admire his love and devotion to her. I hope his next mate will be worthy of his love.
