Okay, so for those of you reading this review and considering whether or not to read the book, let me explain a little about Vicky. Everyone has that friend, you know, the one who is crude and rude and speaks their mind with no thought of what is actually coming out. Or maybe they know what they are saying, it is just a matter of not really caring what people might think because that is just who they are. The friend that you would love to death no matter what they did, because there is just something about them that makes your day. That is Vicky. She has got to be my most favouritest character in this ENTIRE book. Besides Liam and Siobhan themselves. She made me laugh so many times, even when things were getting a bit more serious near the end, and I could tell that she would do anything for Siobhan, even if it meant risking her own life.
Also, I have to say that I love any book that starts out with music. Being a musician myself I can appreciate the whole orchestral aspect to the story. I love the Liam and Siobhan initially kind of bond over their shared love for music, even if Siobhan would scoff at this comment. It just kind of makes them seem more right for each other.
I totally cannot wait for the second book in this series, because there is more in store. That totally gives me chills saying it...SECOND BOOK! Ah! I am kind of freaking out right now, because I cannot wait until the second book comes out!!!
Read this!! It will definitely make your day, or night, or midafternoon, or whenever you decide to pick it up. I absolutely adore this author now and am immediately going to go and pick up the Oracles of Delphi series...like right now...BYE!!
Here is my first problem with this book: What are the Olympian gods doing in Ireland? Why does the main character know all about them? Not a lot of explanations are forthcoming. World-building is at a minimum. I decided to suspend belief and just go with it. The explanation of how it's all supposed to work with the gods and the Influential families comes, a little late, about 20 pages before the end of the book.
The two main characters are one-dimensional, any other supporting characters are forgettable. There is little to no plot and the dialogue and inner monologue of the main character circles endlessly around one subject in the first half of the book -- she wants him, she wants him not, how gorgeous he is and how hot she is for him and how she does not want him. Romantic and sexual interactions are initiated by him and mostly not consensual. She keeps telling him no, he happily plows on regardless. And she feels mostly flattered by it.
I have serious issues with the non-consensual nature of the sex in this book. The first sex scene pretty much rendered me speechless. And not because it was hot.
Instant love, unrealistic and uninspired sex, abusive treatment, odd new characters popping up for a sentence or two, one plot twist with a little action towards the end, the editing wasn't stellar either... If that works for you, go for it. I honestly don't understand the very positive reviews I have read for this book.
I really struggeled to write an objective review and failed, this is my fourth, toned-down version. I am sorry, I do not think this book is written very well. But obviously others liked it, so what do I know.
>I received this book from the author and from Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock.
>This is book one in the Mythos: Gods and Lovers series. The story ends in a cliffhanger.
> We are introduced to a college junior, named Siobhan Law. She is a music student, living and studying in Ireland. One day in orchestra, a new student, Liam, challenges her for first chair violin. Siobhan plays beautifully, for a mortal, we find out. Liam plays with god-like ability as it turns out he is really Apollo, the god of the sun. He is visiting Earth in order to meet Siobhan. Her family is part of a secret culture that does the will of the gods on Earth, so Siobhan is not shocked to meet a god.
>The reasons behind Apollo falling in love with Siobhan are unclear. He really wants to sleep with her. The way her parents encouraged Siobhan to "keep Apollo happy" was a bit off putting. I felt, along with Siobhan, that she was sold to Apollo. She eventually falls in love with him and the erotic romance is very hot. The results of this affair isn't HEA. Gods don't marry mortals. Any resulting children are raised in Mythos, not on Earth and mortals do not go to Mythos. Is this love? Was Siobhan just a tool for fate? The book ends hinting at an immortal war to come, where the children of Apollo and Siobhan have a great part.
>I loved how this story sucked you in. An insanely hot, alpha male, actual Greek god, pursues a plain girl. Siobhan's friend, Vicky, is the comic relief. Everything out of her mouth is meant to shock in its inappropriateness. The scenes with Vicky read quickly and are very funny. I did not believe in the power of this love 100%. Siobhan gives up too much. The relationship is so one-sided, it is almost cruel. The reader can understand her choices, though.
> This book is for an adult (18+) audience, due to descriptive sex.
