Overview

A year ago, Alexandria Stevens strode through the doors of Wicked Ways and into the arms of a man-a monster, really-who stole everything from her. Her memory. Her life. Now she's a creature of darkness with only hazy images in her mind of that night and a confusing jumble of emotions. A fierce hate...and an even fiercer desire for Markus Santini.

Markus has walked through this world for more than a hundred years, knowing exactly who and what he was, until Alexandria undid it all. Undid him. When a former vampire colleague threatens one of the Enclave's own, Markus is needed-but only as the dark, powerful creature he once was. And in order to become that, he must find redemption...in the arms of a woman who despises him with every breath she can no longer take.

The Enclave series is best enjoyed in order.

The verdict is in… Undying Hunger is a winner. That is without me having read the first 3 books yet. I feel one way to tell good author is when you can pick up a book in the middle of a series and still be able to enjoy it with an overall understanding of what is happening in the series without the author rehashing all the details through each book. Lee has done this, not only did she write an excellent book featuring Alexandria Stevens and Markus Santini. As the story progresses we are shown that Alex is drawn to Markus, they have a past together that Alexandria cannot remember and Markus isn’t sharing. Alex cannot understand why she is so drawn to Markus considering she is supposed to hate him for kidnapping and turning her. Then we have Markus who feels he does not deserve Alex and is so far gone over her that he will risk anything and do anything he to protect her. Even at the cost of his own life. The only thing that I can think of that I didn’t like about the book was all the “E” names. Coming in on the 4th book it took me a bit to stop confusing Elle, Emily and Eve. This book is well written and Lee drops little bites of info from previous books that enable the reader to thoroughly enjoy Undying Hunger and still peak your interest to want to go read the first three books in the series.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!! ***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest review The cover is steamy and sexy and perfect for the book :) This is the 4th book in the series, but the first book I’ve read in this series and by Jessica Lee. It is for adults only due to the steamy content. I will definitely be going back to read the rest of the series because I’m intrigued by all of the characters, and I can tell I missed things in the back stories of them all by starting with book 4. This book is packed with action, drama, strife, and entertainment. It is a great read :) This story focuses on Markus and Alex from their past to their present. Markus is a typical alpha with his control issues and things he has done in the past, and Alex is fierce but her past is filled with not so nice things happening to her. I love the good guys vs the bad where action is always being built and plays being made. I’m definitely an action girl :) Jessica does a fabulous job creating a complex storyline and characters that grab your attention and keep you entertained. I can’t wait to check out more of her work especially in this series. I recommend this story to those who already love the series and to all my vamp lovers out there :)

I totally loved this book and the world that Jessica Lee has created. The characters were dynamic and multi-dimensional, the plot and subplots were well developed, and the writing was spot on to highlight the edge, drama, emotion, and passion in the book. Markus and Alex’s history was very dark but filled with hope, and I loved watching their story unfold throughout the events in the book. It’s clear these two want each other, but they are both struggling to come to terms with their past, as well as figure out how to move forward with their lives. Even as Markus begins to confide and trust in Alex, he knows that what he has done to her is unforgiveable. Alex knows Markus has done nothing but hurt her, but the pull she feels towards him is very strong. Watching the interactions and all the emotions as Markus finds himself back with the Enclave, the group he turned on, was powerful and integral to the story, and so well written. The other members of the Enclave were all part of Markus and Alex’s story, and I loved watching them defend, fight, and support each other. Note: I have not read the first three books in the series but had no problem reading this as a standalone. Reading the earlier books may give some additional background to the other characters, but enough backstory was provided to fully enjoy this book without reading the others. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of paranormal romance and urban fantasy, as well as anyone who loves a darker romance. This book had a great, unique twist on the vampire lore that made it refreshing and kept me turning the pages right until the end! I received a copy of the book from the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.

Marie's Tempting Reads (Netgalley) eARC Review: * I got a free e-copy of this book through Netgalley. This in no way effects my rating or review* Undying Hunger by Jessica Lee is the perfect paranormal romance! Its passionate, sexy, and completely delicious. The story is an engrossing one that takes a reader on a ride through the dark and breathtaking world of Enclave. The characters are engaging and will have readers satisfied, while the story is well paced and is written to perfection. I was drawn in with Alexandria and Markus and I couldn't think of two characters that were as good as these two. I loved Markus's dark side as well as his supremely protective and caring side. Alexandria was a stunning heroine. I loved her spunk and spirit as well as how she tried so hard to maintain her distance to the one creature that changed her life for all time. If you are a lover of paranormal romance and your looking for the kind of story that will engulf you and capture your attention to the last page, then Undying Hunger by Jessica Lee is the book for you! I give this story a MIGHTY FINE FOUR AND A HALF STARS!

Undying is one of the best of the summer reads.... I received an ARC copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Markus is our hero, our Antihero in this case. He is one strong, Alpha-silent type. He has gone thru a lot and he doesn’t say much. He feels like everyone believes he is guilty. He keeps everything close “to his chest”. At one point, he believed the Enclave was his family and friends but not anymore. As hated and feared as he for his prior actions, nothing will keep him from Alexandria-to know she is safe because she is his mate. Alex found herself in one messed up situation a year prior to the book starting. She was being held captive by some crazy lady and a handsome man. They ended up turning Alex and she's downright pissed at the handsome man for taking her humanity. But there are parts of her memory, large parts of her memory that are missing that she cannot recall and that is hindering her with the feelings of the man…the man named Markus. She hates him yet her body craves him , needs him, wants him. Of course, Alex isn't going to stand for that- for her body craving a “monster”? Of course not! So she goes off to confront Markus, and after a few things unfold in the book, she's forced to brave him about her missing memories. This sparks a longing in Markus to go on. Markus thought just by being far away from Alex and the Enclave, he could shut down and move on auto, he could be ok but things have not be so. Things done to him were horrible and he tried to block them out in his mind. He missed his mate and the thoughts of her, the smell of her, the taste of her, the thought of her, --everything he has tried to keep at bay for so long—he has tried to stay away , in fact he has tried to avoid everything about her but it has been so hard. This is a pair that is inexplicably drawn to each other, even after everything in their past. Markus was so wrong, he couldn’t do it. This is a fantastic romance with a twist on the modern Romero and Juliet spin . Grant it , R& J are older but still, it has some of those hints of the star crossed lovers in the story spin. The MC are wonderful, the paranormal elements are great and the ending is killer. I love this story and I highly recommend this story. My rating: 4.4 stars ****

**I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review** It's been a year since Alexandria was held captive and forced into the life of the undead. Yet when she thinks of Markus, the vampire that held her captive, it's not just anger she's feeling. Imprisoned at the Enclave, Markus is just waiting to die. When Alex comes demanding answers, his feelings for Alex make him want to live again. In his long, deadly life, she's the only one he's ever felt anything for. Now, she's the only one he wants to protect and live for. First off, BEST FIRST LINE IN A BOOK EVER!!!! This is the first story I've read from this author. I was totally engrossed in this story and once I started it, I just couldn't stop until I finished it. Even though I haven't read the first three books, obviously Markus was the enemy in at least two of them. I love it when an author can take a character that was so obviously bad and change him in such a way that you want him to earn his HEA. I'm not sure I would've felt the same if I read them in order, but I absolutely loved him and his devotion to Alexandria. I also really enjoyed getting to know Alexandria as she is learning to deal with her new life and the pain of everything she's been through. Not to mention, her unwanted attraction and feelings towards Markus. I really loved this book and as soon as I'm done with this review, I will be going to buy the others in the series!!

LOVED! I started reading this series in October 2013 and have been waiting for Markus' story. I'm the type that always thinks you should read the books in order, but trust me that although you could read this as a standalone, if you start at the beginning you see why this was such an awesome book. In book 1 you see Markus go down his dark path. It took till book 4 to see his redemption, but it was worth wait! Markus was once a proud member of the Enclave, a group of vampires led by their Master Kenric who protect the humans from vampires addicted to killing. Now he's the prisoner of his former brothers. He just wants the Enclave to let him die, but Kenric refuses to let him go and force feeds him to keep him alive. He's got nothing but memories of betraying his team, the only family he really ever had. The one good thing he's done, was for Alexandria, and she can never know. Alexandria's life changed a year ago after walking into a bar. She's still having trouble adjusting to life as a vampire. It doesn't help that she's living with a bunch of vampires who are all paired up. She's sick of being the third wheel. Even worse, she's constantly thinking of Markus. The one she knows of as a traitor, and the reason she was changed. She can't reconcile hating him, and wanting him. I loved their journey and finished it in one sitting! There was a long break in between books 2 and 3 so I'm so happy Jessica Lee continued the series!

Undying Hunger by Jessica Lee is the fourth book in a series. And due to the excellent writing it is possible to read this one as a standalone. But for the full experience I would recommend to enjoy the books in their correct order. I did not have the pleasure yet to have read the others – but I will remedy that fact as soon as possible. After a short phase at the beginning of the book where I was struggling to understand the background I was able to catch up fast and was directly drawn to this (for me) new mysterious dark male Markus . He was sending so many mixed up emotions that I could hardly put down this book.Alex was his perfect counterpart. As I said – I did not read the other novels before but the author explained everything so well that it was easy to understand where both of their emotions came from and I could feel their draw towards each other. In my reading worlds this was a perfect example of a good book in a series of probably also good books. Sometimes books lose their “bite” among a series but I do not see that problem occurring with this author anytime soon. Please let me finish with my favorite line from this book Markus strode to her bedside. “You’re not getting in here with me” “I need room to sit” he said. “Not to fuck you” She blinked, looked up, and Markus couldn’t help but challenge her stare with one of his own. “Unless there’s a different kind of feeding you had in mind.” He shrugged. “I aim to please.” Alexandria slowly shook her head, her violet eyes darkening. “Is asshole the only language you speak?” “Nope, I’m bilingual. But when I’m around you, it’s the only language you seem to respond to.” > > > I have received this book as an ARC from the publisher. > > In exchange, I promised an honest review.

***This ARC was received from Entagled Publishing via Net Galley in exchange for a honest review*** I like how the author slowly peeled the layers off of the story behind Alex and Markus. I like how they portray the mate link and how strongly they felt towards each other even when one of them wanted to hate the other. I also really like the idea of the DEAD vampires and how it changes them if they drain someone.

This book was enthralling. It was an amazing love story with a touch of Darkness all wrapped in paranormal. I loved every minute of it and found it to be one of the best vampire romances I've come across, I would definitely rate this up there with the Carpathian novels of Christine Feehan's world. If you love vampire novels I recommend you take the time to read this one.

Can Markus ever be forgiven? He changed Alex into a vampire, controlled her and then wiped her memories. He had his reasons and they weren’t all altruistic. But circumstances have changed and he needs to forgive himself in order to keep her safe even if she can’t/won’t forgive him. They never counted on love. Jessica Lee has spun a wonderful tale of love and redemption among the members of the enclave. I loved this story from the fabulous cover to the very end. Though this is book four in the series it can be read standalone but I bet you will be backlist binging after.
