In essence, anyone who reads this is getting two stories for the price of one. And how cool is that? I love reading books that include the Greek gods and goddesses so I took the opportunity to grab this one. It was a sassy and sweet, but yet ‘hotter than Hades throne room’ short story.
The story is fairly short so it gets to the matter quickly. Two people who secretly crushed on each other in high school now have a second chance when Robert decides to move his tech business back to Texas. He spotted the grown up Rebecca at a wine festival and is now confident enough to try for her. Robert finds his way back into Rebecca’s life by making sure she’s the realtor that is sent out to show him a home that he’s interested in buying. They hit it off quickly enough, but naturally things aren’t that simple.
The trouble is that Robert and Rebecca have no idea that in essence their romance is the focus of a tug of war between the Greek gods, Aries and Aphrodite. Both want to use these human souls for their own ends and use the situation as a chance to show each other a little spite due to their thousand year long anger over a break-up. Both are determined to have their way so plot to thwart each other at every turn.
The plot or should I say plots offered enjoyable stories for different reasons, but I do wonder if they would have been even better if the focus would have been more strong on one or the other instead of almost evenly divided the way it was. I found the human story a sweet little piece and the gods’ portion amusing. Both plots had the common denominator of providing some torchy sex scenes particularly Aries and Aphrodite- whoo boy!
So if you’re looking for a quick read for some light, yet steamy entertainment, you might wish to give this one a try.
