My review for Hunted by Darkness by Katie Reus
Thrilling and sexy Beauty and the Beast of sorts with the kind of HERO and HEROINE partnership I love.
Bo is a half-demon that doesn’t know much about love or how to go about showing it. He’s full of angst and raw feelings and because of his blood lineage he thinks he’s unworthy of beautiful, kind, and demure demigod Nyx.
Nyx has traveled to the earth realm trying to escape from her controlling parents. They don’t even care about her, they never did, not even to teach her the true potential of her powers.
With a creature such as Nyx only a hero like Bo could possibly fit the bill as the perfect male. He was demanding, over-protective, possessive, and was ready to maul anyone that so much as looked as Nyx. As a reader, I would have thought that to be annoying but it actually tied up the story nicely with Nyx’s character. She might have been sweet but she was no one’s ninny and once she understood the extension of her powers she taught Bo a thing or two about “girl power” and he had no choice but to trust her and back down. Most of the female characters created by this author tend to be Alpha and it was kind of refreshing meeting Nyx. She was naïve in her own way but never dull or stupid (I can’t stand those types of heroines).
It was also a treat to travel to another realm and meet different creatures and new amazing characters and hybrids! It was kind of a fantasy meets U/F meets the always awesome PNR by Katie Reus. Can’t wait to see where the story goes from here =D
I definitely recommend it to all lovers of U/F and PNR.

About the Book:
From two different worlds…
Now that she’s escaped her oppressive family, Nyx is enjoying her new life and friends—even if most of her friends don’t know who or what she is. As a rare demigod, she’s just learning how powerful she truly is, but family drama turns her world upside down, throwing the one man she cares about into danger.
He wasn’t supposed to fall for her…
Nyx is nothing like the females half-demon Bo Broussard has been with. Sweet and innocent, she’s not even remotely his type. But the moment she walks into his bar, he knows he’s not letting her go. Unfortunately someone from her past thinks they can force her into an arranged marriage.
He’s not letting her go…
Someone is targeting one of them, and Bo doesn’t know why. When they’re thrown into a hell realm together, he and Nyx will need to band together if they want to survive the perils of that world. No matter who was behind the attack, his choice is clear. Defend Nyx at all cost and make her his forever.
