Kye Rivers has the magical ability for the sexual healing of others but to keep this ability she must forgo all romantic feelings of her own. In Angel Seduced by Jaime Rush, Kye has discovered a way to allow Caidos (individuals descended from angels and cursed to never have pleasure without pain) to bond with their mates and to finally feel pleasure without pain. A side effect of the bonding process is it can unlock repressed or blocked memories. When Kye is approached by the sexy Kasabian to help her unlock his memories she has a hard time supressing her own feelings.
Kasabian was captured as a child and his memory is blocked about that time period, now more children have gone missing and Kasabian will do anything it takes to discover what happened to them, even if it means convincing Kye to help, against her better judgment.
Angel Seduced is the third full-length novel in The Hidden series, while I have enjoyed all the previous novels (including the novellas) I have to admit each book is getting darker as far so content, experiences of the main characters and the motivations of the protagonists. So while I love the world that Rush has created (and I do really like her take on creation of the different types of paranormal characters) I did struggle a bit more with Angel Seduced than I have with the previous four stories. Rush’s character experiences and darker story lines remind me a lot of Larissa Ione’s Demonica series. Rush’s writing style is intriguing, I love the world she has created and Angel Seduced keeps with that same great voice, just with a darker tone to it. Kye was a great heroine but it was Kasabian with his reactions to what he had gone through and his willingness to put himself in danger to save the children that really stole the show for me. While the books in the series are connecting, you don’t have to read them in order to understand what is going on. I really struggled to figure out what to give Angel Seduced because I really like Rush’s style but it did feel a little dark to me so I really give it a 3.5 star but because I don’t have a half a star icon I am rounding it up to a four, I feel it deserves more than a 3 star rating but fell a little short of the full four star rating.
