In the first story, I truly got a feel for Dionysus and his love for Ariadne. There was not much to a plot there beyond the original outline of the myth, but plenty of hot sex and emotions. The fact that Dionysus had to wait, for a god, to get Ariadne and the fact that Theseus acted so noble, as befit his rank in the history books, to leave poor Ariadne alone, abandoned on an island made me very happy. I always appreciate an erotic retelling without having to go so far the story needs to be rewritten.
However, with all that said, the first story really didn't fit with the rest of the shorts.
The last story was the best written one, by far. Ms. Johnson was smart to end with that one. A new take on the Psyche and Eros tale. In my opinion, a far better version than the original. And, for me to say that, is surprising. I liked the premise setup with Erato dropping off a journal to read.
The other shorts, though entertaining aren't much more than smutty fluff.
P.S. My biggest beef is that Erato, the muse, was a woman. She was definitely not a man. That bothered me a lot... so much so I thought of putting this book down more than once and giving up entirely.
