When the goddess of love is broken and trying to figure out her life again, but also having to play the gave of the gods, everything is a mess. She's not giving her all, and Artemis is playing a dangerous game with the players this time around. A second chance at love is in store if Dita can get her head in the game for the players, but she needs to get her head together, which is harder than you would think. I loved how complicated things were for Dita in this book and how much more depth we got for her character. Sure, she's the goddess of love, and yeah, at times she can be flighty and conceited, but we truly got to feel her pain, her loss, and her spiraling out of control, and my heart truly broke for her. We also got to know more about Artemis and her story and as much as I hated what she put the players through in this book, as we got to know her, I began to feel sorry for her, and everything she had been through as well. Both Dita and Artemis have a lot in common, even if they don't want to admit it, and both of them in their own way healed themselves throughout this book and through the game.
Now on to the players (the humans) and their chance at love. Josie and Jon were a perfect match, until Jon left her with his pregnant ex-girlfriend three years ago. Now he's back and he is still in love with Josie and wants her back in his life. Problem.. Josie has been through so much, and her walls are too high to even think about letting Jon back in. There was a lot of miscommunication when Jon left, and Jon does everything he can to try to break through those walls, but it takes Josie putting her life in danger, and Jon having the lead she needs to find closure on her best friends death for her to finally let him back in.
Watching Josie and Jon deal with their past, and their present, along with the crazy murderer they were chasing was thrilling, scaring, and at the same time a roller-coaster. I for the longest time didn't think Josie would ever give Jon a second chance, and with Dita not on her game, I didn't think she would be able to help Jon get back into Josie's good graces. It was a long, dangerous road for these two, but it was one that I think these two needed to go on.
This story was full of second chances, heartbreak, and about finding yourself, both for the immortals and the humans. In the series, it was the book in which we truly saw the gods grow the most, and got more of who they were and why they were they way they were. I loved seeing Perry and Dita fight, and work through their issues, and watching Heff be there for Dita, and watching Dita fall apart and begin to pull herself together. I love the gods more than I love the humans in these books, but Josie and Jon definitely held a special place for me as well. I definitely can't wait for Dita and Athena's game and to see how that plays out and who they pick for their players. If you're a lover of Greek mythology and love, and want something different to read, then definitely pick up this series today!
This time around, Artemis is facing off against Dita (Aphrodite). Dita is facing her own heartbreak and is not her usual strong, confident and determined self, which is apparent during this competition. But her friend Perry is by her side to set her straight when needed. Artemis is a bitter and angry god. She blames Dita for the loss of her love and is determined to win at all costs.
Artemis choses Josie as her player. Josie has been through so much and has lost everything the last few years. Hurt when Jon left her for his ex and their baby, she is bitter about love. She hated him on sight when she saw him again and did not make things easy for him. But she is also reeling from her best friend being murdered. She is determined to catch the murderer. She was stubborn and fiercely independent.
Dita choses Jon, Josie’s ex as her player. He did what he felt was right when he left Josie to be there for his child, but he never stopped loving Josie. He was strong, determined and so very patient. I loved him from the start, even if he did mess things up when he left years ago. But he is back and determined to win her back.
Artemis feels the win is hers, as Dita picked an ex that Josie feels so much hate and bitterness towards, but as we know, never underestimate the emotions a person can feel. I loved Jon and Josie, even as my heart broke for them. They were good people that were a bit broken and lost. There are some hard moments to read in this book, but it all flows good together. I do not want to say much without spoiling it, but this may be my favorite yet in this series.
The transitions from the gods and the humans was so smooth this time around. I was consumed by everything happening in this book! It was darker than the previous two books, but so worth the read. I loved the characters, all of them, and the story so much. I am looking forward to seeing what comes next!
