After Dark Review of Slave to Passion by Elisabeth Naughton

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)

Synopsis: "Kill them all…

Enslaved by his enemies and forced to fight in the pits of Jahannam for their depraved entertainment, Nasir, the once-proud Marid warrior and djinn prince, has become a killer. One celebrated and feared at the same time. Even he doesn’t remember who he used to be, nor does he care, until hope enters his cell in the form of an alluring woman who may be the key to his salvation.

This is not my life…

Sold into slavery, Kavin must prove her worth. If she can survive one night in the arms of a killer, her life will be one of luxury—albeit as a concubine, forced to serve her lascivious master. Sickened by the thought, she knows it’s better than death, and where she once dreamed of freedom, now all she wants is to stay alive. But when the gladiator refuses to touch her, her only hope for survival is seduction."

My Review: I really enjoyed this one, possibly even more than the first in the series. I liked that there was no clear leader in it and Nasir and Kavin worked together so beautifully. I did feel like Kavin was at times a little week but she ended up surprising me. I really love Malik and I desperately hope we can revisit him at some point. The storyline really moved along nicely and was so enjoyable I didn't want to stop reading (I did finish this one at work because I couldn't wait until I got home).
My Rating: I enjoyed the interactions between the main characters and how they fed off each other's strengths and weaknesses.  Might end up being my favorite in this series.  I give it a rating of Four Paws!
