She and her best friend trauma nurse Jill Doyle are at Kelly's Corner where two Etruscan men want her. Werewolf-witch cousins Rom and Remy Caneglosi knows the demon who killed their family wants Amity. They are stunned when she comes over to them offering to buy them a drink and much more. As they team up to kill a demon, their attraction grows.
The third Forgotten Goddesses erotic romantic urban fantasy (see What A Goddess Wants and How to Worship a Goddess) is an exciting paranormal that works due to the vile villain. The sex scenes are well written and hot, but also unrealistic as danger stalks her. The three fascinating protagonists carry baggage as she knows love hurts and struggles with how far she has fallen while the cousins blame themselves for what happened to their family. Readers will enjoy this heated Etruscan triangle.
And the plot thickens...This is the third book in the Forgotten Goddesses series. This erotic series has a great balance of mythology and sexy lucani werewolves. In this series, the Etruscan goddesses are losing their power more and more as they become more and more forgotten by the world. But that hasn't stopped Charun, the God of the Underworld, from attacking them to try and steal their powers. His latest target is Amity the Goddess of Health. She has settled into the human world and works as a healthcare provider, healing in little bits and spurts where she can with her floundering powers.
But Charun's focus has brought a demon after her. He just happens to be a demon that Rom and Remy are chasing after because he killed their families. That brings them to Amity....a plus since the Goddesses are empowered by sex and since these two guys are seriously powerful lucani, they infuse her with a really powerful surge.
There is lots of really great things happening in this book. Rom and Remy have spent years running and focused on revenge. They're powerful so that means lots of people would like to get hold of them. They both have mental scars from their experiences, but those are eased around Amity. They also share a mental bond and I loved that aspect of the story. The three of them together have some amazing chemistry and there was enough angst to keep me happy.
The overall arching story line of the series took an interesting twist in this book and I'm excited to see where it goes....both with Charun and Cat have really promising stories going on. I need to go check Stephanie's website and see whose story is coming up next. I'm also really interested in X...I don't remember seeing too much of him in the first two books. It's all good and I continue to love this series. It's fun and entertaining and really super-sexy.
Rom and Remy, lucani cousins hell bent on revenge, learn that the demon they are hunting has for some reason targeted the sexy Amity and are watching her from *not too* far across the bar. Feeling an inexplicable draw to this old-world beauty and knowing that it's the best way for them not to miss the demon, they decide to go home with Amity, having no idea the impact this not-so-innocent choice has on their future.
Sparks fly, demons bleed, and hearts mend on this journey, uncovering the lucani's protective instincts and slowly allowing Amity to let down her walls...in the midst of some hot lovin'!
I picked up this book when in need of a sexy, simple read to keep my mind off of the disarray in my house due to the recent move. That being said, I have now added Stephanie Julian to the list of authors that certainly can create an erotic read without skimping on the storyline. This book was SO much more than I expected.
I connected with Amity quickly but even more so with Rom and Remy, both of whom had endured pain and loss and who's lives are a story on their own.
I also enjoyed meeting the other two goddesses, goddess-in-training and their men, who I'm sure were in the first two books in this series. So much so in fact that I am going to buy the first two books and add them to my *way too large* to-read pile.
My only negatives were that the book didn't answer some of my questions about the lucani brothers and their purpose in the story. Furthermore, I didn't feel as though the relationship between the cousins and Amity was explored enough. I wish there was a second book focused just on their developing dynamic and relationship.
Overall, this was a great read - fast-paced with some smokin' sexy time thrown in. Add in a goddess-double-stuffed oreo cookie and it was just one glass of milk away from an Mm Mm good time! ;)
