If you want a fun and easy series to read, I would recommend this series.

Maybe it's simply too much story for this length of book.

All of P.C. Cast's other books earned four or five stars in my opinion however this one felt a little rushed, perhaps because there were two rather quick love stories going on in here rather than one well developed one. I was disappointed with Venus's romantic interest, he seemed shallow and focused more on appearance than depth. From the beginning he ignored the plain girl and was immediately drawn to the incomparable beauty of Venus. I won't go to much into detail because I don't want to spoil any of the story, but he wasn't a character I liked or could feel any sort of sympathy for and frankly he got a way better deal than he deserved. As for Pea, her story wasn't really the focus of the book and seemed more like a sideline, I really wanted to hear more about her and her love interest. The two "beautiful people" story bores me because it has been done so much it's a cliche. The ending is predictable from about a third of the way through the book, but as long as it is a happy one I don't usually mind that. Some characters are introduced but not rounded out and one is never seen again after the beginning of Pea's story. They say the devil is in the details so to sum up, this book lacked a whole lot of detail which would have made the story more engaging, the characters more likable and dynamic and the story far more rich. Still, I gobbled it up and enjoyed it as what it is, an entertaining afternoon read with just a touch too much fluff and not enough substance. I will still eagerly await her next book and pre-order it as always.

This started out as a great read, a young lady without fashion sense falls for a gorgeous fireman. Then we have the Lady of Love, Venus, come to help her find her self and get togather with our hunky hero. Unfortunately this is not what happens.

Pea Chamberlin is a wonder at her job and at her hobby, dancing. She just can not bring the ability for decorating her home to herself. She has had a crush on a fireman for a yr. When she is around him she constantly looses her cool and stupid embarrassing things happen.

Venus, our Goddess, is bored, she is bored with her life and her marriage of convenience with the God Vulcan. While visiting Earth she is summoned by Pea. Hera has interfered with a spell and so Venus can not return to Olympus until she helps Pea get her man.

Griffin DeAngelo is a fireman, he has helped raise four sisters and seen them thorough marriages and divorces and does not find the thought of finding one woman very appealing.

Vulcan is tired of living with the disdain of the other Gods, he has a limp and so hides himself away in the dark deep caverns of Olympus.

I looked forward to the way VEnus would help Pea and be able to finally see the wonderful man (God) she had married. This is not what happened. Let me only say I was disappointed in the book and I would wait until it came out in reg paperback if I decided I had to read it.

Venus is just not a very easy character to make likeable and caring; she is beautiful, can have anyone mortal or immortal she desires. Yet we are to believe she had rather be seduced by a mortal than loved by a God.

Vulcan was easy to like and you feel a profound desire for him to be happy.

Let me preface this review by first stating that I love Ms. Cast's books, and have read them all numerous times. In spite of this fact (or possibly because of it), I was quite disappointed with this one. I was so excited to find a new book out by one of my favorite authors and was eager to get immersed in another of her creative and captivating tales. But this book let me down. I really wanted to care for the characters and their trials and tribulations (particularly with Pea & Vulcan), but something was missing...something that typically binds me snugly to the people/gods/goddesses in Ms. Cast's books. I normally find myself crying and laughing throughout her books, but during this one I felt hollowly expectant - wondering when the real story was going to begin.

I don't know why this book isn't up to the standards set by Ms. Cast's previous books, but in my opinion it's not. It feels rushed and only touches on things I think should have been explored much more deeply. Maybe it's simply too much story for this length of book. I just hope that this is a fluke in Ms. Cast's writing and that her next books are of the caliber of all of her previous ones.

If you'd like to read one of the Goddess Summoning Series (and I highly recommend that you do), I'd skip this one and read Goddess of the Rose - my personal favorite.

I just read the first page of the prologue and I know I'm going to have a problem with this book. Venus, is the Roman Goddess of Love. She does NOT live on Mt. Olympus - the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite does. So much for proof-reading.

While I do realize this is a work of fiction, re-writing ancient history should not be part of the story.

This is not the only book I've read lately that seems to lack genuine review before being published. I guess in an age of spell check and grammer check, there is no need to really *read* the story and see if it makes sense.

I am disappointed, but I'll finish the book since I spent the money on it.
