My Review

5 Long Live the King Stars

“Don’t let me fall.” Her breath hitched as she said the words. “Never.”-Emma and Dage

“I should have known the Queen of the Realm would be a pain in my ass.”-Dage

Claimed the 2nd book in the Dark Protectors series was as amazing as the first book! This book picks up right where Fated left off. Dage is going after Emma who was kidnapped by the Kurjans. With war looming and virus 27 threatening vampires' mates Emma and Dage have their hands full as they start their life together. I loved this book just as much if not more than the first one. Rebecca Zanetti did a great job of getting me completely connected with this world, these characters, their families, love stories, and lives. 

“Not used to the word no?” she asked with a hint of sarcasm. He narrowed his gaze. “Most people wouldn’t dare.” The fact that she’d dared made him harder than he’d been in his long life. The urge to teach her the result of tempting his beast was one he’d satisfy. Without question. “I would think most kings aren’t. However, you are not my king, either by birth or fealty.”-Emma and Dage

“I’ll give you time, Emma. But if you think I’m letting you go, you’ve misread me.”-Dage

What is sexier than a strong super powerful vampire king ? Nothing!!! Dage was charming, sexy, bossy as only a king can be and super protective. He tried to give Emma space and respect her choices but in the end if her life was in danger Dage is a king use to calling the shots. He had no problem pulling rank on his new queen! Dage has the weight of the world on his shoulders and his pleasure and happiness is his mate. His love for Emma was intense. Emma' a protector. She has protected her sister Cara, her mom, and Janie her whole life. I loved that she wanted to protect the one man that everyone else looks to for protection. Emma was very sassy, independent, and smart. She didn't take orders especially from the king. Emma was the perfect mate for a hard headed king!

“I’m with the man, not the king. The king can kiss my ass.” -Emma

“Then what? Well ... then I’m going to bend you over this desk and fuck you until you scream my name.” -Dage
Emma and Dage had a very passionate love. They had many battles of the wills because Dage was use to everyone following his every order and Emma doesn't do orders well! Even though they butted heads at times they had a sweet loving relationship. This book has double the action, wars, viruses, and tons of steamy hot sex.... All the favorite characters that I fell in love with in the first book are back in this book, as well as a few new ones. The plot kept me on edge the whole book. The stuff going on with Cara and Talen was ripping my heart out. Janie was cute as ever and I loved getting to know Conn, Kane, and Jase better. Great book for a great series! I can't wait to read Conn and Moria's book.

"He did it for my mate. Eating a virus that might kill him. For my mate." A pebble skipped across the cement when Talen kicked it. "I don't know whether to hug him or punch him in the face." Dage grinned. "Hell. It's Kane. Do both."-Talen and Dage
