This is a story about 5 Goddess on Ambrosia Lane and told from their point of view. Hera is the experienced and manipulative Goddess. Abstinence is the new Goddess on the block who is innocent but wise. Persephone is the spoiled Godling who's trying to find herself and stand on her own. Nyx is the BFF Goddess you can talk to about anything. Demeter is the bitter Goddess who blames everyone else for her misery.
Throw some hot Gods into the mix and you've got yourself a recipe for steamy sex scenes, good humor and a downright fabulous story. I have to be honest and say that I did not like Hera through out most of the book. My girl Kay Dirty Girls' Good Books’ absolutely loved her but I just wanted to punch her in the throat. Hera is one of those characters you love to hate. Or, I love to hate.
I loved the few references to Kansas and Missouri. It's always nice to hear your hometown mentioned in books. It doesn't happen very often since I'm right in the middle of the US. Believe it or not but Kansas and Missouri just aren't that exotic.
Overall, I loved it. The sex was good and didn't overshadow the story. The humor was great and I had some real laugh out loud moments. The characters have depth and emotion that will knock you off your rocker. And finally the story is fantastic and will keep you guessing. DeWylde has a new fan!
I must have bookmarked at least a dozen spots that had me literally laughing out loud, everything from a wonderfully witty turn of phrase to more ridiculously complex situations. Some of the in-jokes are especially gratifying to anyone who may actually be well-versed in Greco-Roman Mythology. It's a treat to see what DeWylde's imagination has cooked up for this Pantheon in modern day, and even more genius the sly twists of wackiness.
This is not to say the book isn't steamy. Oh, these Gods and Goddesses DO like to get dirty, but never at the expense of plot or character development. Even a black-hearted bastard such as myself found a certain scene between Thanatos and Persephone to be unbelievably hot. The mythological "cannon" of these characters and their carnal exploits are hard enough to keep straight, but DeWylde paints each uniquely and with contemporary style.
Sure, someone like myself would have added in a few nice scenes of bloodshed and mayhem, but I can honestly say that the "Happily Ever After" found here will speak to a wide range of readers looking for something fun, sexy and fresh. And when we find Artemis spouting lines like, "Did they both have a bowl of stupid for breakfast today instead of ambrosia?", I'm pretty sure DeWylde's novel will speak to a few extra like me as well.
I would recommend this to anyone, whether they are familiar with mythology or not because truly, their historical value is nothing compared to their emotional journeys.
There just wasn't a whole lot I could like with this book. The characters were poorly written, the dialogue lacked depth, and the sex scenes were just crude, as epitomized by the slang terms used to describe the female anatomy.
If the author's intent was to write a book that was as shallow, drama-filled, and unimaginative as a t.v. Reality show, then she succeeded. And if you like watching Reality T.V., then you will love this series. It's too reminiscent of The Real Wives of...
Funny, romantic, and sexy, this is a great romp through Olympus that has a very happy ever after.
