DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS:
Hell hath no fury like a witch done wrong. Pissed off and packing an arsenal of witchy mojo, Martha is on the warpath. Determined to avenge the murder of her mother and grandmother, her mission is simple: kill every vampire, demon and underworld bastard she comes across, because one of those hell beasts might be the monster that stole her childhood from her. But when a sexy Latin vamp literally falls from the sky, saving her from becoming an undead Happy Meal, she has no choice but to reassess everything she thinks she knows.

Xan is an anomaly --a vampire born, not turned. A powerful warlock who walks in daylight, Xan spends his days, and nights, watching over Martha, protecting her from Lucian, the blood-sucking monstrosity whose sole mission in death is to drain her dry. Undeniable attraction and the promise of pleasures untold draw the two lovers into a frustrating dance of one step forward, two steps back. When Lucian throws down a deadly ultimatum, Martha is forced to choose between relying on her own mystical woo woo to save the lives of her stolen friends or succumbing to the lure of dark, voodoo magic. Xan and Martha must work together to save those closest to her and put an end to Lucian's reign of terror before it's too late.


REVIEW:

WOW!!  Thank you so much Lisa Sanchez for writing a fantastic book.  I really enjoyed Eve of Samhain...but I LURVED Pleasures Untold !!
The connection the three girls (Martha, Jessica & Taylor) have is wonderful and you can feel their closeness and understanding of each other throughout the book.
The chemistry that sizzles, sparks and kabooms between Xan and Martha totally rocked. I waited and read and waited and wanted and you delivered!!! The raw passion was well written and my eyes certainly enjoyed reading it. LOL!! (definately not YA but certainly not taudry and smutty as some books can get).

There was a lightness about the book that made it very easy to read and so entertaining. It was filled with a few very good POWs and few teary sad spots and of course some great smexiness!

My eyes shut at night and my mind begins it journey to find Xan!!  I want me one of those!  Without being too brooding and dark her is uber yum and a little cheeky on the side - just the way I like my man!! LOL!But without being too soppy and lovey dovey.

Martha is fantastic. It's hard not to mention too much without giving a whole lot of the plot away.....I just want to blurt it out!!! But Martha is a fantastic and formidable lead in Pleasures Untold.  We saw a darker glimpse of her in Eve of Samhain and the light has certainly shone on her in this book.  She's tough, tenacious and could do with a good.......hug!!

Taylor needs more than just a few hugs to get her through life at the moment and she is certainly going to have to find her strength in the next book!

Jessica is a lovely spirited character that is dealt with a huge blow. She is an honorable and loyal friend to both Martha and Taylor.  

Lucian is just a down right nasty bugger.  Evil permeates from every pore his undead body has.

Gabriel, though still only a small side line character, will play a greater part in book 3.  We also glimpsed him ever so slightly in Eve of Samhain.  There is clearly a lot more to Gabriel and Lisa will certainly enlighten us in due course !

Eve of Samhain (book 1) was definately no YA novel.  Pleasures Untold, however still not YA, could easily be enjoyed by both YA and adult readers alike.  Change a few of the choice words and (God forbid) tone down the smexiness and this would be a hit across the board. Two very different writing styles from One talented author.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Pleasures Untold. I hope you all do to!

ENJOY!
