This book wasn’t terrible it just wasn’t my cup of tea. I kept making comparisons to 50 Shades and I’ve come to realize that BDSM isn’t my thing. But more on the book. The pacing felt really fast, not necessarily bad, just I expected the book to be longer.

sThis one was definitely worth the wait. I can't believe it took me so long to remember it was on Spotify as an audiobook. I'd wanted to read it for so long and honestly the audiobook made it so much more enjoyable. Like listening to a telenovela-style drama unfolding. I loved it!

I adore almost any kind of Greek mythology retellings but especially Hades and Persephone ones. The whole enemiea to lovers trope is (without a doubt) my jam and the fake dating…*chefs kiss*

Hades is such a big bad ol' boogeyman but is such a ball of goo for his girl. And Persephone...YASSS! I adore this girl. The young and sweet little siren luring big bad Hades into actually feeling. I loved her character growth as well as her naughty vixen side.

Full of hot, steamy, and sometimes *public* sexy content, I also have to mention the fact that both Hades and Persephone are bi, and have dated both genders before. That was certainly a first for me.

I honestly can't fault this book much, my only criticism was that Persephone's voice actor doing 'male' voices jarred me a little but, eh, I'll live.

I was really hesitant in picking up this book after hearing about it so so many times online but I was pleasantly surprised when reading it. I am a big sucker for a Greek god tie in and I thought the way that the other translated into a modern day story was pretty creative. Hermes was especially my favorite!
