ABOUT THE BOOK:
What do the Greek gods do when they’re bored? Because they’re always bored, so humans are the perfect players in their games.
Aphrodite owns love; she hasn’t lost a competition on her turf in over three millennia. Apollo is on a mission to win. He’s counting on it to finally get the one woman he’s never been able to have. The two gods will choose their human players, and if Aphrodite can’t get them together before the clock runs out, Apollo will get his way. And Aphrodite couldn’t have that.
Lex and Dean are perfect for each other, they just don’t know it yet. Dean is a perpetual bachelor, and a brooding, beautiful rock star. Lex is always with a man, but she’ll never fully give herself up. Aphrodite has her work cut out for her, but if she can’t make it work, no one can.
The gods have their own drama. Apollo killed Aprhodite’s mortal love – they’ve got beef that’s been dragging on for thousands of years. Ares, the douchebag, is forever trying to pick a fight, and trying to get Aphrodite into bed. And Persephone, Aphrodite’s best friend, is the one person who Aphrodite shares everything with.

Follow the gods as they fight, laugh, cry, lose,  love, gain power, and make a mess with humans.

I’ve always been intrigued by mythology. I love reading stories that are based around it, especially Greek mythology.  This story has some of our favorite Gods and Goddesses, except with a twist.

What do the Gods do to pass their time lounging about in Olympus, oh yeah, that’s right they place bets, and play games using humans.  This may seem kind of cruel, but it was entertaining. It was almost like watching a reality show. You know, the train wrecks you can’t take your eyes off of?? There is a lot of quirky humor in it, and I really enjoyed that.  The fact that Aphrodite has to work her butt of to try to keep Apollo from winning is even better.  The goddess of love shouldn’t have to work so hard to make people fall in love.  We get glimpses into the lives of the gods, past and present, while also watching the ups and downs of Dean and Lex.

I like the spin Hart put on the gods.  Especially the looks into their pasts.  It makes them seem more human, and you realize how much pain and other emotions they’ve dealt with through their long lives.  The story moves along pretty quickly.  I mean there is a time limit for this relationship to happen.  There are ups and downs, fear of being hurt, and fear of stepping into the unknown. We can see why Dean and Lex have come to be who they are.  And we hope that they can get over the hurdles set before them to become an item.
As I said before, I love the spin, and found myself rooting for both gods to win. But you’ll have to read the book to see the outcome!

About the Author:

–> Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom; she has three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife; even though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f, ends with k, and there a uc in there. Just saying. From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics. But let’s be honest, she’s mostly writing.
