In Aphrodite's Choice she made decisions based on whether the person agreed or not and she always followed the rules even though she wanted things differently.
This book by Christy English is different from her other books but just as wonderful I was totally glued as I read each page I felt like I was there with Addy when she was happy, sad, angry and even when she was so heartbroken Christy brought Addy, Steve,, her sisters and brothers too life so much that you are feeling everything that is going on.
I hope Christy writes more of the Goddess Diaries for I fell in love with her description of Addy's sisters and would love to read their choices...
If anything this book will have you guessing all wrong on the Brotherhood (of this time period) for when I thought I had the answer Christy got me...
I really found Aphrodite to be an undeveloped character in this novel. There really was no character depth to her. The only thing we know about her is that she is lonely, and wants to have a mortal life. I also found her to be a weak character. She is a damsel in distress and is always needing saving. She was not a strong character. I really did not understand why Steve appealed to her most. She only met Steve for a few days, and she loved him without us knowing the reason why. I also thought that their romance was not real but fake. Steve only loved her simply because she was beautiful. There were no other reasons. Thus, this couple seems like it will be a failed relationship because they formed a relationship based on looks rather than personality and character.
Overall, this book is about love, friendship, and choice. It is about a woman’s quest for happiness. I found the characters needed more time to develop, for they were one-dimensional. I also found it slow and predictable. The historical elements seemed like fillers and did not give me any depths into these characters. I also had trouble understanding the world-building. Yet, despite the flaws, there were some parts of the book I liked. I liked the other goddesses, and I hope we get to explore them further in later installments. I also thought the writing was very beautiful and lyrical. I also liked the Greek mythology elements in this novel. So, while I was not satisfied with the romantic part of the book or the main characters, there is enough here to hold the attention of anyone interested in Greek mythology. I recommend this story to fans of Gwendolyn Womack’s The Memory Painter, Anne Fortier’s The Lost Sisterhood, and Tosca Lee’s The Progeny.
(Note: This book was given to me as part of a blog tour in exchange for an honest review.)
Despite being the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite has somehow avoided truly falling in love during her many, many interactions with members of the opposite sex. That is, until she meets Steven Wharton, who is a danger to more than just her heart. Aphrodite (who goes by Addy in modern times) is faced with the daunting task of not only keeping herself safe from those who want to destroy her, but also to protect her sisters. This novel is full of drama and intrigue, and the author does a great job of creating romance and passion, without it coming across as a tacky bodice-ripper. Paranormal romance is definitely not a genre I would normally read, but I wanted to give it a chance after I discovered that Christy English was the author. There was enough of a historical aspect added to the novel to keep my interest, so in the end I was happy that I gave it a chance. I probably won’t run out and look for another book in this genre, but I enjoyed “Aphrodite’s Choice” enough to give it a FOUR out of FIVE stars!
