Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

At the start of Julian’s third erotic paranormal romance in the Forgotten Goddesses series, 35-year-old professional hockey player Brandon Stevenson is smitten with a woman fan in the audience and goes to great lengths to meet her. No ordinary fan, Lucy Aster is actually Lusna, the Etruscan Goddess of the Moon. She and her small group of followers live in a hidden enclave, making it difficult for Brandon, and Charun, the God of the Underworld, to find her. Charun wants to kill Lucy and usurp her power. Brandon is nothing if not persistent, finding her and bedding her. Since Lucy wipes his memory, he only has feelings of déjà vu the next day, but, still craving her, he locates her a second time. When he defeats the demon Charun has sent after having hot and heavy sex with Lucy, she knows he’s a lover worthy of her. However, they must thwart Charun if they’re ever to be together. Julian’s goddess world shines amid rampant sex and thrilling battles. --Pat Henshaw

Lucy is goddess of the moon and is one of the few that retained some of her powers.
I could really feel the attraction between Brandon and Lucy while I was reading the story.
There is a lot of sex in this book and at some points I felt like it was a bit too much.

Lucy Aster (otherwise known as Lusna, Etruscan Goddess of the Moon) loves hockey, I mean what's not to love? Sexy, brawny men full of testosterone flying across the ice straining and fighting each other over a win. But veteran player Brandon Stevenson is the real lure for Lucy. Little does she know that Brandon has been watching her just as intently as she's been watching him. When Brand finds the nerve to finally approach Lucy, he tracks down her address and walks in the door of her lucani bar. Lucy is surprised when Brandon shows up, wondering how he was even able to find the place no mortal should, but she quickly takes advantage of the situation, taking this one night for herself to be just a woman, not a Goddess. After a night she will never forget, Lucy wipes Brandon's memories, somehow though he finds himself back at the bar the next night. Knowing something is off; Brand quickly confronts Lucy seeking answers. To be able to overcome a Goddesses' spell, Lucy knows Brandon must be more than mere human, but what can he be? When an evil underworld God sends his demons to take Lucy's dwindling powers can she risk having Brandon around long enough to find out? Or will Brandon be able to prove that no matter what he is, he can stand by his Goddess through anything...

How to Worship a Goddess is the second book in the Forgotten Goddesses series and follows What a Goddess Wants. I haven't read the first novel yet, though I just purchased it on sale for my Nook for only $1.99! I think the story would have read smoother if I had read the first novel in the series as the main Characters from What a Goddess Wants do show up and I felt like I was missing a bit of the story on them and background on the Goddesses early on.

Brandon Stevenson has quickly become Lucy's favorite hockey player. She attends every game just to watch him. Little does she know that he watches her from the ice. Brandon decides he's tired of just watching, he needs to meet her. When Lucy sees Brandon walk into her bar she knows that she will be able to enjoy one night with the man, after all he is human (he is right?) and can know nothing of her world.

I truly believe this is one of the sexiest books I have read in a long time. Lucy and Brandon have an intensely passionate sexual relationship. They really burn up the pages. Julian has included some amazingly hot sex scenes in How to Worship a Goddess. They have an intimate connection from the very beginning.

I also like the history/series/world lesson that was involved. Julian's Etruscan world is fascinating. I've read several of her series and have picked up numerous intriguing details about it. The characters in this book explain so much of their world while welcoming Brandon into it. I enjoyed the way Julian worked all this information in, while showing her characters bonding to the new person in their lives. This also made the secondary characters flesh out to people one could easily imagine sitting at a bar having a few beers with.

How to Worship a Goddess takes place in Julian's lucani world. I have not read her Lucani Lovers series. I will definitely read it shortly. Readers who have read the series will see many characters from those books. People like me will run out and by those books due to the curiosity of needing to know them better.

How to Worship a Goddess was a new spin on a hugely expanding genre.

It seems that every second romance author is trying their hand at paranormal which makes it hard to find a unique story in between all the variations of vampires, demons, fae etc, but I think Stephanie Julian may have a winner here.

The female protagonist - is a Goddess, but the part I enjoyed is that she wasn't perfect, she wasn't the be all and end all of all thing magical. Her powers weren't anything profound - in fact they were quite limited, making for some great conflict. And I even enjoyed the simple little fact that her name was Lucy - well in actuality it was Lusna Etrucian Goddess of the Moon, but she was always referred to as Lucy. She didn't need to have a hyped up name to pull off the mystical, Goddess-y nature, she was just Lucy.

Brandon - the sexy, macho, alpha with dreamy protective tendencies was the scrumptious ice hockey player that adored Lucy from first sight. He also came with a few surprises which I picked up on quite early - but it was still an enjoyable twist to this story.

I found the heat between Brandon and Lucy to be quite scorching - Stephanie Julian can definitely write a good sex scene but sometimes I wanted more intimate moments between the characters to convince me it was love instead of lust.

Format: Paperback
Lucy is another forgotten goddess but she still has her loyal followers. Lucy has set up a life for herself running a bar and surrounding herself with the lucani. She's also an avid hockey fan and has the hots for hockey player Brandon Stevenson. Lucy attends every game to watch her crush in action. Unbeknownst to her, Brandon has noticed Lucy noticing him and looks for her at every game. Brandon decides that he's tired of watching Lucy from the comfort of the rink and decides that it's time they meet face-to-face.

How To Worship a Goddess is the second book in this series and it does not disappoint with the romance and the sex. Brandon and Lucy do not waste time hitting the sheets. Lucy has been without male companionship for a long time and this is the first time a man, any man, has made her feel. Throughout the book Lucy struggles between doing what's right (hiding her true identity from Brandon because he's human) and doing something selfish (continue to see Brandon).

Brand is not your typical hero. He's rough around the edges and there's more to him than meets the eye. Brand is constantly worrying about being too rough and crass around Lucy. The chemistry between Brand and Lucy is explosive. There is a lot of sex in this book and at some points I felt like it was a bit too much. We find out something about Brand's background that changes the game towards the end and I felt that more time should have been spent exploring this and maybe a little less sexy time.

How To Worship a Goddess was a great addition to the series. I love the Estruscan mythology and can't wait to read more about this world. Even though this book is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone.
