Oh. Em. Gee. Seriously guys. Swoon. I just finished Leyak by L A Boruff, the 2nd book in her Unseen series. It was so freaking amazing. So swoony. Action packed. Wonderful goodness. Time to dive in
We are back with Riley and the guys, Elias and Anthony, and all those kids we absolutely adore Plus, we have a new guy we were introduced to a bit in the previous book, Supay. His name is Axoular and he is Sarkany, aka lizard/dragon people, like Riley. He’s super sweet and is always cooking as well as taking care of Riley and the kids. Riley is still reeling from having to experience her husband’s death all over again when it is revealed that his reappearance was just a shapeshifter impersonating him. To top it off, Riley is pregnant. Very pregnant. Because of this and some pregnancy complications she has been given restricted, err, physical limitations. You know, doing the dirty… What a giant freaking bummer. Especially since she has two absolutely gorgeous husbands.
Riley is also having trouble forgiving Elias now that the smoke has cleared after the adventure with the fake Michael and her discovering her Sarkany ancestry. The fact the he integrated himself into her life and became her friend when he knew about her late husband, Michael’s fate as well as where her children were being kept is a hard pill to swallow. She understands the limitations he was under but is still deeply hurt by the transgression. Realizing that she has been emotional distant from Elias she decides they should spend a weekend together to reconnect. Please just forgive him Riley! He is way too cute to be mad at! 😊
When she approaches Elias with the suggestion of spending some time away he of course jumps on the opportunity. Cindy the witch helps them by making a portal to send Riley, Elias, and Anthony on a surprise getaway to Bali. They are on a private beach staying at a private cottage owned by the Supay. It is a super hot trip that is of course filled with some steamy scenes when Riley’s physical restrictions are lifted. Yay! She is in for a night of some hot sex and some super orgasmic bites from her vampire husbands. Yum. Axoular joins them on their getaway when Riley has a bad experience playing with fire, her fire that is 😉 She overexerts her energy levels testing out her newfound power so of course they call in the only person that can understand what is happening to her, our lovely Axo. While on the trip Axo and Riley discover their feelings for each other. Swoon. That of course Anthony and Elias are 100% okay with. Swoon. What a lucky girl!
Riley and Axo decide to take their relationship slow. Uh what? I thought this was reverse harem? Doesn’t that mean nonstop sexy times? I jest, of course fictional characters can take it slow. Not everyone is a tart. Snort. Well Riley and Axo decide to go on a date, how freaking adorable. It’s like super adorbs until OF COURSE they both get abducted. Jesus H Christ can’t we just have a moment of peace? I mean she is pregnant for god’s sake and just wants to turn her triad into a quad. CUT A GIRL A BREAK!
Who would abduct them you ask? Well fake Michael, aka Peter’s father, of course. Freaking shapeshifters man, or as they are better known as the Leyak. THE NAME OF THE BOOK. Look at shit coming together all intricate and shit. Well, this fucking creep Dumadi, holds Riley and Axo hostage in a temple so that she will be forced to have her baby there. Dumadi is convinced that Riley is carrying his son Peter’s baby, which I mean she could be. There is a chance it could be Elias’s, Anthony’s, or Peter’s. He is still a psycho though… Finally after deciding enough is enough Riley bursts into flames like Faux the phoenix in Dumbledore’s office. Poof! Dumbledore out! Well, I mean Riley and Axo out. Throwing fireballs and those that try to stop her, um badass, she and Axo are able to escape Dumadi and his goons.
Since they are no longer safe with the Leyak after them Riley, the guys, and the kids have to find somewhere to hide out until after she has the baby and things calm down. The logical option is to stay to Michael’s mom’s house. Obviously. After just getting done reading the Hijinks Harem series (see my review here) and dealing with Ari’s bitch of a mother-in-law Joan, Riley’s mother-in-law is a breath of fresh air. She is super nice and welcomes them into the home with open arms, plus she buzzes off to steer suspicion away from the house. This house is freaking huge because the Supay are loaded. Man, I would be pissed if I was Riley too. If my husband and I struggled with bills and I find out he was secretly loaded. I would flip my lid. So nooooow they are safe tucked away in MIL’s house, right? WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?!?!?!
This book is so amazing. Riley, Elias, Anthony, and Axo are such lovable characters.I do have to 100% praise the author, L A Boruff, for being so breastfeeding supportive. When Riley gives birth, she is a nursing momma and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that. I personally breastfed my now 4-year-old until she was 2 ½. Go breastfeeders! Keep that liquid gold coming ladies! 😉
There are plenty of some really steamy scenes in this book that are totally swoon-worthy. Plus, some more twists and turns that continually keep you guessing. I never knew what was going to happen next and was constantly muttering ‘oh shit!’ to myself. I don’t want to give too much away because you need to read it yourself! Like now! Get to swooning dolls!
