Always Eros (Immortal Assassins Book 3) by Mia Monroe

Always Eros is book 3 in the Immortal Assassins series by Mia Monroe and what a wild, yet romantic ride it is!

From the blurb:

Salvation comes in different packages, even murderous ones.


Did you hear the one about the guy who escaped a cult only to find out he had no clue how to survive in the real world? It’s me. I’m that guy. It took me almost thirty years to find the courage to leave the life I was born into and with it everything I’ve ever known. Now on the other side, I learn fast that life in a cult did nothing to prepare me for life outside of it.

That’s how I find myself tangled up with a mysterious man who looks like the angels I was raised to believe in. But he’s no angel. He may be soft spoken but I’ve seen his violent side and it’s something to behold. In spite of that, I know I’m safe with him.

What I definitely didn’t expect was how drawn I am to the murderous man. Especially because romance should be the last thing on my mind, but the pull between us is undeniable. Do I step out of one dangerous situation into another or cut ties and build the independent life I crave? My heart and my head are at war, but if this angelic man is to be believed, it was Always Eros I was meant to love.

Always Eros is book three in the Immortal Assassins series, a contemporary setting, MM romance featuring vampire assassins finding love with their fated mates. Book three contains a hopeless romantic vampire who still managed to give up on love, an absolutely clueless mortal who has no idea who he’s messing with, a new gang in town wrecking havoc, stargazing and city lights swoon, a simmering heat exploding into full on fire, and an epic love worthy of a poet.

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

"What a joy and gift you are in this dark world. You are my sun and I your earth. My entire existence revolves around yours."

I totally fell in love with Eros and Justice while reading this book. They were just so freaking sweet. Poor Justice. I can't imagine what growing up in a cult like that would be like. Spending every waking moment in fear that something was going to happen to you or your loved ones. Never having any privacy provided by a locked door. Counting down the days until you disappear like most of the others. Just awful. Mia doesn't shy away from some of the horrific things that go down either, though none of the noncon is actually depicted on page in case that helps you to know and it also does not include any of the men we've come to love.

It was by chance that Justice runs into Eros during his escape. Actually, now that I think about it, it was more like fate at work. Eros is a poet. He's a romantic to the core, and I loved when he would spout all his flowery words for Justice. On the opposite hand, I also loved when he would give into his possessive vamp side too. It was like getting the best of both worlds in one person, well, vampire.

"He is mine and I know it."

Lots of things go down plot wise in this one. We also meet quite a few new faces and I am left wondering if some of them are going to end up being mates to the men of our beloved House of Orpheus. I'm looking at you, Hale and Micah! We are now down to three vamps left to find their mates. Raphael, Thorn, and Yves. I'm guessing we are going to get their books in that order too, just based on little hints I've seen. Either way, I cannot wait for all of them to get their HEAs!

Molly Otto's Review:

Mias best series to date with each addition to this Coven of Immortal Assassins you get more depth to see west makes this group work as a whole and crave to see whose next to find their fated mate. 

Mia dives into the world of cults with Justice, and you see him try to wrap his head around not only vampires being real, but how wrong their teachings outside the compound are. To the point of being almost laughable. 

In this book, we get to visit old friends and make new ones along the way, showing how caring and forgiving these men can be when that person truly deserves another chance. Mia brings us Eros, another poet who will steal your heart and make you hope to have someone lobe you one day as much as he loves his Justice. 

Brilliant job can't wait to see what's next!

Heather's Review:

I'm absolutely loving the twists and turns that the Immortal Assassins series is taking, and we're now starting to glimpse a larger picture of how the New Onyx vampires fit into the greater vampire world...  and beyond that, it was lovely to see Eros get his HEA with Justice.

I love the poetic side of Eros and just how sweet and patient he is with Justice as he begins to navigate the outside world.   Justice, as a character, has such a sweet innocence that hides a steel core and I absolutely love how he protects Eros too!

I look forward to seeing where the storyline continues and I hope we get even more interaction with the other covens!

Sheena's Review:

This is the third in the Immortal Assassins series, and it's the turn of Eros, the vampire with the soul of a poet. As with the other two in the series, this is fated mates so things develop quickly between Eros and Justice, but it still felt fairly natural. Justice is such an interesting character, escaping from a cult is no easy thing when it is the only thing you have known for your entire life. He's brave and fearless and I loved him. Eros is perfect for him. As with all the other vampires in the group, I have loved seeing their origin story and how they came to be with Orpheus.

I really enjoyed seeing Justice and Eros' relationship grow, and I loved that Eros was more than happy to give Justice the time he needed to acclimate to the world. There's a lot going on in this story, not only Eros and Justice but also the story of the cult and how that will play out going forward, because I'm fairly sure that's not done. I also liked how turning Justice was different from the first two books, it really fitted for these two and I was so delighted to see these two get their HEA, hard won as it was.

I am really looking forward to more in this series.
