Night Pleasures (Dark-Hunter, Book 2)

Night Pleasures (Dark-Hunter, #2) - Sherrilyn Kenyon I purchased this book on a whim for my ereader, since the price was $2.99. A few people that I know really enjoy the series, so it didn't seem like a huge gamble. When I first started to read this story, it almost scared me off. 60 or so pages in, not much had happened except a girl gets chained to a guy and they're trapped together. Cue man and woman having a hard time keeping their thoughts off sex (predictable). Once the author finally got me over that hurdle, the story finally started to develop.This book was a fun take on Greek mythology. It wasn't the best I've ever read in this type of material, but it was alright. Some of my favorite scenes involved the flashbacks of Kyrian in his ancient world, (***mini spoiler ahead that has nothing to do with the main hero and heroine's story, so it should be safe to read***) and the amount of (physical) torture that he went through at the betrayal of his wife Theone. I caught a glimpse of great world building in this first installment. For a PNR series, I was actually more intrigued by the history and world-building than the love story itself, which is a switch for this type of genre. I only gave this book a 2.5 star rating for it being sort-of enjoyable but not quite "there" yet. Maybe I'll read more someday, but I'm not sure.The series itself is an intertwining of worlds between the dark-hunters, dream-hunters and were-hunters. From what I gather, the author has written three separate series that come together as one, and often some books from one series fit in between the stories of another.
