Sophie Bloom’s junior year has been a bit of a train wreck. After the world’s greatest kiss re-awakened Sophie’s true identity as Persephone (Goddess of Spring and Savior of Humanity), she fought her dragon-lady guidance counselor to the death, navigated mean girl Bethany’s bitchy troublemaking, and dealt with the betrayal of her backstabbing ex, Kai (sexy Prince of Darkness). You’d think a girl could catch a break.Yeah, right.With Zeus stepping things up, it’s vital that Sophie retrieve Persephone’s memories and discover the location of the ritual to stop Zeus and Hades. So when Aphrodite strikes a deal that can unlock Sophie’s pre-mortal past, what choice does the teen goddess have but to accept?The mission: stop media mogul Hermes from turning Bethany into a global mega-celebrity. The catch? Aphrodite partners Sophie and Kai to work together ... and treat this suicide mission as a date. Which could work out for Sophie’s plan to force Kai to admit his feelings for her–if she doesn’t kill him first.Add to that the fact that BFF Theo’s love life and other BFF Hannah’s actual life are in Sophie’s hands, and suddenly being a teenager—even a godlike one—seems a bit like ... well, hell. Whatever happened to dinner and a movie?The YA romantic comedy/Greek mythology fireworks continue to fly in My Date From Hell. Love meets comedy with a whole lot of sass in book two of this teen fantasy romance series. Breaking up is easy; dating is deadly.
Tellulah Darling is definitely one of my fave new to me authors. I read My Ex From Hell last year, and loved the witty, and fun, characters that Darling created. My Date From Hell didn’t disappoint.
I think it’s great that Sophie is trying to figure out how Kai feels about her, and not Persephone. We get to see a different side of Kai also. He’s still completely arrogant, but he has his sweet moments too. 😀 We also get to meet new characters!!!! Pierce is great, he’s not in the entire book, but his presence is definitely known. I also fell in love with Festos. He’s such a fun character, and is easily BFF material.
Everything in this novel is fast paced. The entire book is spent trying to find Hermes, and stop his campaign with Bethany. They come up against some crazy situations. I also couldn’t stand Bethany at all. I felt sorry for her at times in My Ex From Hell, but wow! She takes her being adored by all to a whole new level. We also get some sweet, and some juicy scenes.
I loved this book, and can’t wait to read more. I have to know what’s going to happen next after the revelations at the end.
Don’t miss My Life From Hell, releasing March 20, 2014. Which is also spring equinox and the date of Sophie’s final showdown with Zeus and Hades in the book.
