Review Of Natalie G Owens & Zee Monodee

Inescapable (Eternelles: The Beginning, Book 1) 

About The Book

An immortal born from an unlikely alliance...

Beautiful mythic Greek heiress Adrasteia 'Adri' Dionysios has roamed the world for millennia, taking her pleasure where she wanted. Until one night, when Fate drops a baby wrapped in fire into her arms. Motherhood is a formidable challenge, but so is figuring out the identity of a mystery man who makes her pulse race.

A vampyre's obsession...

Seraphine 'Sera' Dionysios' origins are shrouded in mystery. Torn between a mother whose blood saved her life, and a man who now possesses her soul, the only thing Sera can still cling to is her heart.
One rule matters above all others: Always protect the portal...

When Evil comes to Adri and Sera's hometown of Shadow Bridge, a place where the mortal human world ends and the supernatural realm starts, it's up to them to stop a prophecy as old as time itself...or die trying.

Natalie's Review

When i started to read this book i felt really apprehensive, because i know Natalie as a friend i was so worried i wouldn't like it and then even more that i would have to tell Natalie what i thought... well what a waste of time worrying,  I thought the book was fantastic,  I love vampyres anyway so was certain i would enjoy that aspect of it but what i really enjoyed about the story was the Greek mythology with Zeus and his children banished for disobeying him.  I thought the way that it was all twisted into the story was Fab. 

The Intensity in the book was perfect some of the scenes you find yourself holding your breath especially between Sera and Rafe wow the chemistry between them was smoking lol literally. Also the relationship between Sera and Adri is strained and i think this portrayed the immaturity of Sera and helped you understand the decisions that are made right up to the final chapter

I thought the story was so well written when i started i couldn't stop reading, this Paranormal Romance was definitely for me and i look forward to reading the next book as soon as it comes out.

I give this book 4.5 Stars 

Excerpt From Adri's POV

 Adri, a two-thousand-nine-hundred-year-old immortal, cannot suffer fools gladly. She’s not the “sweet” type but more a no-nonsense chick who has had to fend for herself for, well, forever. The first time she meets Des, a mysterious, alluring stranger who is more beautiful and tempting than the Devil, she doesn’t know what to make of him yet her body’s reaction is telltale…
“I hope you’ve eaten before coming here,” Des said in a whisper against her ear.
His warm breath feathered through her loose hair to tickle the nape of her bare neck like a delicious caress. Et merde, encore—of all the times to feel sexual need. The energy pulsing off the crowd was driving her batty, pushing her buttons and sending her in a state of quasi-permanent arousal.
Come on, Adri. She could hold a normal conversation, couldn’t she?
“Why...why do you ask that?”
He started to lead her toward a table in the front row. Thankfully, he idled to the side and she found herself staring at the place card with her name artfully scrolled on it. Something told her to risk a glance to the right, and her heart sank when she read the name Desmond Roxburgh on the card. So he was her dinner companion. She’d bet Susan had manipulated that outcome. Her friend would have some explaining to do when Adri cornered her. She hated it when acquaintances tried to play matchmaker.
“Look at the plates coming in,” Des murmured in her ear.
She glanced around to see waiters marching around in a well-orchestrated ballet.
“Barely enough food for a kitten,” he continued. “You’d think that at eleven hundred dollars a seat, they’d give people some decent food. But no, all five courses will be as artfully skimpy as the one just placed before us.”
She couldn’t help but quell a little smile at the dejection in his tone. She, for one, loved her substantial portions of food. And please, none of that super-size-me fast food crap her daughter adored, or the innovative nouvelle cuisine that looked like doll’s food.
“So why did you come, then?” she found herself saying.
He eyed her for long seconds, during which she squirmed and resisted the urge to lower her head so she’d escape the intent perusal.
“It was high time we met.”

Excerpt From Sera's POV

She stared at him, steeling herself against his intense gaze. He was looking at her in that way. The one that told her she was his, that he wanted her, and that what he wanted, he took. She swallowed again, this time to calm her racing pulse.
Oh no, don’t do this to me.
“You will cooperate. Mia cara, you have no choice in this. I’ll make sure you come to no harm,” he said, as if that would reassure her.
What his words did, though, in particular the unwanted endearment, was send her temper flying to the tropics. That was good, because with anger came courage. Something that was second nature to her mother, but not so much to her.
And the man needed someone to put him in his place—fast.
“Is that so?” she said, lifting an eyebrow and enjoying the jolt of energy her whirling emotions gave her. “I think you need to learn how to speak to a woman if you want to charm her into obeying you. When did you go to school, the Middle Ages?”
Come to think of it, he might be that old.
His lips curved on one side in a shadow of a smile. “If I touched you right now, you’d melt in my arms and beg me to take you.”
Her face burned with embarrassment. She chanced a surreptitious glance at the others in the room. They stared at her, but didn’t seem concerned with this conversation.
“That’s not true.” Her voice trembled a little.
“You know it is.”
She took refuge in her resentment. Conceited prick. “I know nothing of the sort. In fact, I hardly know much about you, except that you take pleasure in ruining people’s lives.” And that you make my blood boil, not just with rage, but in other ways....
