Description: A deadly lover. His perfect mate. Asher is everything Aria's never dared to imagine: sexy, confident, and rich. But if she convinces him to take her to his bed . . . her first time may be her last.

Incubus Asher Chain seduces every woman he meets whether he wants to or not, and refuses to let anyone grow close to him. Until the alluring, tattooed waitress Aria Hyacinthe admits she’s been living in her car. Enthralled by her unusual beauty - and terrified he’ll succumb to his deadly, incubus needs - Asher offers her a place to stay.

Living in Asher's loft above his gym, Aria's desire for his body is growing more urgent with every touch. Used to being the backward, shy one, in his presence she becomes fierce, captivating, and breaks down Asher’s walls against all his attempts to keep his distance. She has no clue that if he gives in to her passionate pleas, she won't survive the night, just like all the other women who have fallen victim to his charms.

But the deeper Asher and Aria fall in love, the harder he must fight the incubus in his soul, demanding her life.

Sensuality Level: Spicy

My Review: The authors start of the book immediately letting us know that Asher Chain is an incubus. He has become accustomed to doing whatever he must do in order to stay alive. However, Asher does not want to constantly kill woman in bed. Understandably he feels an immense guilt for what he has done over the years for his own survival. The fact that Asher felt guilty and did not want to hurt anyone is what made me like him. I think that I might not have had he been arrogant and had actually liked killing woman.

Aria, I instantly liked because she is strong, independent, opinionated, and down to earth. She does not let Asher get away with the things that he is used to because he is rich. In fact, she does not exactly like that he is rich. I think this made me respect her the most because it shows that when she says she loves him, it is he she loves, not his money. 

Another character I liked was Gypsy, Asher's twin sister. Gypsy manages all the money and business that Asher has. She also cleans up after every "accident" that Asher's incubus' side creates. Gypsy seems extremely self efficient and I am interested to see what would happen if she falls in love.

I was reading at the edge of my seat during every intimate scene because I knew Asher was an incubus. As much as I wanted Asher and Aria together, I was afraid for Aria. Asher tries so hard throughout the story to resist her and I personally think he deserves a medal because Aria did not make it easy for him. 

I really liked the way the authors concluded the story because it was a satisfying ending. Too much more would be a spoiler but I will say that I am interested in a continuation to see about other incubuses mentioned and Gypsy.

I looked up. The nametag over her full breast read “Aria H” and her hair was short, spiky black with a longer streak of blue over her right eye—just long enough to tuck behind her ear. I blinked and swallowed, taking in the sight of the girl who escaped my approach last night. Earrings decorated the rim of each ear: studs and silver hoops from the lobe to the cartilage. Her eyes were bright blue, laced with white throughout. She peered at me with an intense gaze full of intelligence, shaded by long, black lashes.

The incubus urges within me swelled at the sight of one so full of life. I felt constriction in my chest, the need to charge my body with her life. My pants tightened as I realized how deeply I wanted to fuck her into lifelessness. Wanted to but didn’t want to, all at once.

“Hi,” she said, her hands folded in front of her midsection. “What’ll you have?”

I cleared my throat, still stunned by the effect her atypical beauty had over me, and then smiled at her with my usual, winning charm. Well, not always winning, I supposed. Her rejection of me last night was an unprecedented event in my life, and I tucked my hands beneath the table to hide my scabbed knuckles. Rejection made me angry. I had burned off the alcohol and irritation on a freestanding punching bag in my gym last night with bare, bleeding fists.

“Like my name tag?” Aria asked, taking note of the fact that I hadn’t managed to tear my eyes away from her chest the whole time I sat there and drank in her appearance.

I cleared my throat and stopped blatantly staring at her cleavage, embarrassed. “Yeah, it’s very . . . uh . . . letters.”

What the hell? Where was my charm and finesse? I scrambled for something else to say and came up with nothing.

She giggled. “You wanna try that again?”

I chuckled and leaned forward, grateful for her good humor with my stumble. “Yes, I do, sorry. I’m Asher.”

She bit her lip and I wanted to bite it, too. “I think we covered that much last night.”

She was totally right, and I was being a fucking moron. “So we did. And you’re Aria, as I failed to coax out of you when we last met.”

She nodded. “So, Asher, what would you like?”

The list ran through my head at a ridiculous rate. You, naked. Me, naked with you. Your mouth in my lap. Oh, the list went on and on. But that list led to death, darkness and disgust. No. 

Overall Opinion: Overall, I really liked Wild Hyacinthe. I would have liked it to be a little longer but only because when I get into a book I don't want it to end. I also would have liked to see how Asher became an incubus but his sister, Gypsy, is not. Overall I think the romance and relationship are very well built. They don't seem forced or rushed once you learn the truth about Aria. I give Wild Hyacinthe 4-4.5 stakes and I would really like a continuation of Asher and Aria's story or maybe about Gypsy finding love.

My Suggestions: If you like the style of this book I would suggest Gilded Destiny and Jaded Touch by Nola Sarina. The two books are both about Vespers which I find extremely fascinating after reading the books. Also the romance is great too. You can see my review of Gilded Destiny here. And my review of Jaded Touch here.
