Passion Punched King

(Balance 02)

Lisa Oliver

King Zagan, Commander of the legions of the damned and one of the higher echelon in the Underworld, never fancied a mate. Demons weren’t that way inclined. But when Botis met the Archangel Raziel and their relationship actually worked, Zagan was intrigued. Of course, it wasn’t as though he planned on claiming anyone, but tangling in the sheets with a forbidden angel was a vice he could and would enjoy. Or so he thought.

Anael has always considered himself the annoying younger brother of angels like Raziel. As the angel of love, passion and sexuality, he could see love connections that others couldn’t. When he saw his connection with Zagan he was so excited. Not only was he part of the big “Mating Scheme” devised by Head Office, but he snagged King Zagan, the secret crush he’s had for centuries. Now if only things could go right for them both.

A marriage proposal from Lady Zoltus is just the first sign of trouble for the new couple. When Lucifer sticks his nose in and detains Zagan in the Underworld, leaving Anael to roam earth alone, more secrets are uncovered. After a confrontation Anael starts to question if anything he does is right. Will these two ever find their HEA?

This book is a continuation of the Balance series although it focuses on a new couple. It advisable to have read book one, The Viper’s Heart (Raziel’s and Botis’s story) to gain a sense of context for this one. MM intimate experiences divulged in the pages. Suitable for adult readers only.

Exclusive Excerpt!

Hello and thank you so much for hosting me today as part of my blog tour for Passion Punched King, book 2 in the Balance series. I’ve got an exclusive excerpt for you today and scroll down to be part of my fantastic giveaway. Thank you 🙂

Excerpt:

“When a person says no, they mean no! One syllable, two letters. N. O. Simple enough for even a dunderhead like you to understand.” Zagan was barely hanging onto his fury. It was bad enough learning he’d been blocked at the club door, although he doubted that was his sweet angel’s doing. That meant someone else had designs on his mate. A few carefully palmed bills and he got in easy enough.

Determined not to let another second of his twenty-four hours pass without speaking to Anael, he ignored the bar and headed straight for the dressing rooms. He wasn’t a moment too soon, but it seemed Anael’s attacker had eaten bricks for breakfast.

“No one is allowed back here but staff. I’m head of security. You need to get out.”

“Security?” Zagan laughed. “You don’t pay your bouncers enough to offer any security to these dancers. I got in, didn’t I? Despite your efforts.”

“Can we go?” Anael’s voice had a tremble in it and Zagan turned to him immediately. “Watch out!” Zagan’s ears rang with the combination of Anael’s yell and the blow to the back of his head. The double-handed punch might have felled a human, but Zagan was made of stronger stuff. It barely made his knees wobble. Turning back to Jared, he allowed his glamour to fall.

“You mussed my hair,” he said rubbing the affected spot and showing his teeth in a way that sent demons running for cover.

Jared’s face went white and his eyes bulged. “What the hell are you?”

“Your worst nightmare if I catch you within five feet of this man again,” Zagan promised making a mental note to send a few of his demons to torture the man – later. He didn’t want Anael getting the wrong impression of him. Speaking of which, “have you got your things, babe? I thought we could have a late supper.”

“Yeah. I’ll just grab my stuff.” Keeping a wary eye on Jared, Anael pulled a bag out from under the table and started pulling clothes off hangers resting on a pole in the corner.

“Hey, why’re you taking all your stuff? You’ve got another shift tomorrow night.” Jared couldn’t keep his mouth shut.

“You can tell Darren I quit,” Anael said tersely, zipping up his bag.

Title: The Viper’s Heart

Series: Balance #1

Author: Lisa Oliver

Publisher: Lisa Oliver (October 7, 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb: Botis, demon lord and ruler of sixty legions is having a rough day. Lucifer set him on a quest to find the potion given to Gilgamesh thousands of years before, which should be easy enough. But being told a visit to the Angel Raziel was a necessary part of the mission wasn’t so easy to understand. Everyone knew that demons and angels didn’t mix, and angels were strictly off limits for his kind. Which was a shame because the moment Botis set eyes on the sexy Raziel his imagination ran into overdrive. 

Raziel has a cruisy life. As the Angel of Secrets there aren’t many who darken his door with requests for finding strange artifacts any more, but he’s content. He has his shop, his taxi and his good friends, Anael and Uriel. Having Lucifer in his cab was the first sign things were about to change, but when Botis walks into his shop, Raziel starts to seriously reconsider his angelic abilities. No demon should be able to tempt him, so why was he affected by Botis’s sheer presence? 

Soon enough, Raziel and Botis learn their meeting was no accident. With forces at work beyond their control, they have to learn to rely on each other if they are going to beat the odds stacked against them. But how is that possible when Raziel’s untouchable, and Botis doesn’t have a heart?

Review: This story can be read as a standalone, however I can guarantee that you will want to continue this series. 

I have read almost every story that this author has put out, but I wasn’t too sure about this particular story at first. It is a very fresh and unique idea and I for one was glad to have had a chance to read it. It has a serious tone to it, but there is quite a bit of humor which was a nice surprise for me. 

It would seem that the man in charge has decided that there needs to be a balance between hell and heaven. The humans were not calling on them as much as they use to so mating sounded good. Six to start but many to come later. Too bad no one warned them about it. Raziel was to find an ancient artifact for one of the demons, but neither had expected a set up. Heaven wanted Angel Raziel and the demon Botis to be mates. However there are some that see it as wrong and want to end it before it starts. The moment they see each other though, the sparks start to fly. 

Now usually I am captivated from the start, but this story took just a little more time in getting into it. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but let’s just say it has ranked pretty high up in her books. I was fascinated by the way seem to start off with distance, but soon they were protecting each other from those who wanted to cause harm.

I can probably guarantee that this is going to pretty much dominate all of your other stories that you have read. It was a big hit with me and I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Balance collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Anael is the angel of love and passion. He is one sexy dancer at a club that needs to get shut down. He sees the threads of connection with everyone. So when he sees he is connected to the one demon he has always wanted, well he is overjoyed to say the least. That is until the demon runs from him after finding out. Way to shake a person up.

Zagan is an asshat. He is a demon king and enjoys playing around and kicking ass. So what is he supposed to do after finding out he is mated to an angel. Running like a scared rabbit might not have been the best thing. These two are going to need a bit of help.

There is something about the way that Lisa tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off at parts of it. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their love ones with their entire lives.

I love the paranormal tone and the little bit of twists that come with it. Who knew that Lucifer would be such a blast, or have a friendship going on with an angel. Lets just say, he is the help they needed.

I had a blast reading this story. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book, although it did not flow as well as it should have. I don’t really know what the issue was I had with it, but I could tell that there was something bugging me about it. Other than my little issue with it, this is one hell of a story.

I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.
