I'm happy to say this book exceeded all my expectations!! While it has the fantasy/paranormal type feel to it, it's SO NOT your typical fantasy type book. Yes, there are all the players from Greek Mythology here, but in a truly modern vein and I truly got sucked into this book from the first page to the last!
While the story centers around Dean and Lex, just like in Greek Mythology, there's so much more at stake here. I just wish my college Mythology classes had been this entertaining; I probably would have done so much better in them! This book has it all, romance, comedy because those Gods, they like to one up each other, angst, sassiness like I've not seen recently and an overwhelmingly well written story!
While Ms. Hart is still a relatively new author for me, with this third book that I've read and loved by her, she has now moved into the automatic one-click category and I will devour each and every one of her books both old and new.
It's silly that time again; it's Dita's turn to participate in the next set of challenges. Being the goddess of love, this is practically her calling and she couldn't be more ready to go at it again as the raining champ.
"'It's been too long since I've had a real challenge. There is nothing I love more than making love matches.'"
And the objective of this challenge?
Get Dean Monroe and Alexis Greene to fall in love, and more so, get them to be together indefinitely.
And that's exactly what she intends to do.
Because Dita never loses.
Dean led a simple carefree life. Or so one would thing. Simple? That's questionable. But carefree, in more aspects, definitely so.
"He was too damaged to care about anyone, not even himself."
But then he met Lex. But not only was she as unavailable as one can be, but because of Dean's reputation in general, he had to stay away from her. Which isn't as easy as he'd originally hoped...
"Her eyes were a brilliant shade of blue and green, her skin like porcelain, and when her cheeks had flushed and her lips parted, he'd felt his do the same."
He was immediately taken with her. Too bad he just couldn't have her.
Lex had an easy life. She had everything she could possibly need to be happy. And, in a sense, she was just that... happy.
But then a person can waltz into her life and make her question everything. Dean was clearly bad news, and Lex needed to protect her heart.
But with the attraction and the look in Dean's eyes, it just gets more difficult for her to stay away.
"As he took shape on her page, her heart cracked and chipped while she wondered how someone so beautiful could be so broken."
Broken Dean wasn't as broken when it came to Lex. And all she had to do was one thing for him to come to that revelation.
"The barriers he had in place were impenetrable, and women were a novelty, unable to break in. But all Lex had to do was exist."
The dance between the two continued. But the outcome was inevitable...
"The kindest thing he could do for her was to watch her walk away."
"She felt like she'd been shoved into an icy river, the shock of the experience bringing her painful clarity."
So the questions remain:
Will Dita succeed or will she finally fail?
Are Dean and Lex truly meant to be?
I'll admit, I hadn't read Deer in the Headlights and aside from knowing that Staci wrote it so I couldn't wait to get my grubby hands on it and it had a hint of mythology woven into the story, I really went in pretty blind.
And came out seeing vivid, bright colors!!!!
Paper Fools was a story filled with angst, humor, steam and everything in between. It was what I've come to expect from Ms Hart but shaken and stirred and all sorts of unique.
Dean and Lex were the epitome of "wow their past is gonna cause some... ahem... issues" but I loved their parts. Their struggles. The way they overcame. And Apollo and Dita (Aphrodite) intermixing (and TRULY MIXING) just made for a fun, fast-paced story that I loved turning the pages in.
It was really a refreshingly "new" read. Bravo, lady Hart!
