I was looking for a good Persephone and Hades story and saw this. I knew nothing going into this book and it was much more spicy than I expected. That being said I throughly enjoyed it and read the whole book in one night (I did stay up till 2:00am to finish it). There were a few grammatical errors and typos but they did not interrupt the story.

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 enjoyed the plot, but it wasn't really the main focus of the story. The build up in tension to the climax/resolution wasn't great, and the end of the book felt like it came (and went) very suddenly. They spend a lot of time focusing on the main characters bonding, which was nice.

This is a fine interpretation of Hades-Persephone tbh. I'm not mad about people romanticizing and turning Hades into a torn and misunderstood hero. It's an entirely different story with the same names. No biggie. I definitely enjoyed this one. A bit wordy, a bit cheesy, a bit insta-love-y but meh not shabby. It definitely underdelivered on the dark smut part. Other than a couple of scenes where they fucked with spectators it's pretty par for course in any other romance. Hades calls himself a dom I call him a deluded simp. It's cool.
