This book is HOT! The smut is top tier, and the romance is so cute. AND their relationship is healthy (built on respect & trust af). Also the mythology is pretty accurate for a smut retelling.

This book was basically just a boring, tame mafia AU retelling where the author knew the bare bones of the original myths and nothing more. It wasn't as sexy as I thought it would be, which is embarrassingly disappointing.
Spoiler The whole thing with Zeus' death felt way too rushed and empty, just like the rest of the book.
 Neon Gods totally suffers from "telling, not showing" (and when it is shown, it's different from how it was told). I absolutely do not believe Persephone when she says Olympus is full of poison because it's never actually shown????? Also, the fact that "fuck" was one of the only curse words outside the sex scenes (like, one per page) is hilarious to me. Sure, it's a quick read, but it was so devoid of anything that it was a waste.

I much prefer this version of Hades and Persephone over the version in A Touch of Darkness. Unique world building, compelling plot, interesting characters, and excellent spice. I only wish there'd been a little more exposition to really establish the villain as scary and threatening. Looking forward to reading the second one!

2.5

I was into the first 50% of this and then idk what happened or what it was about this book but I just got so uninterested?? I just did not care about any of the last half of the book like at all and the smut didn’t really keep my attention or anything 
I literally skimmed basically the last half and especially by 75% through I really considered DNF’ing it but decided not to
But ya essentially had no strong feelings about this book besides that I really did not care
