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!
Aphrodite is the Goddess of love and when it comes to challenges, she is basically undefeated. Apollo has lost someone who is very dear to him and he’s got nothing to lose, and everything to gain when it comes to challenging Aphrodite- aka Dita. The rules are simple. Apollo picks a human, Dita picks a human. If they fall in love in the allotted amount of time, Dita wins. If Apollo can somehow keep this from happening, he wins.
Dean is in a band and is your typical damaged hero. He sleeps with women frequently, but he doesn’t do relationships. In fact, he has never been in a relationship. Lex is kind of the opposite. She is ALWAYS in a relationship. She’s not always in love, but the fear of being alone keeps her committed.
Dean and Lex have that magical spark when they first meet. Who knows if it’s Dita, or if it’s just meant to be. I adored these two characters. Broken people are my jam. I love watching them find the one person that can heal them. I rooted for the two of them, but strangely enough, I also rooted for Apollo. Even though I wanted Dean and Lex together so much, I also wanted Apollo to get his happy. I loved the way it all turned out.
I loved how the story went back and forth from the couple on earth, to the Gods. It was interesting to me to see all the back story and interaction of the Gods. I really loved Dean and Lex and their friends as well. Kara and Roe especially. This book is a standalone for sure, but I can’t wait to read the next book. To get more of the Gods story and see what direction the next challenge will go.
Staci Hart blows me away with her fantastic writing and creative mind. Paper Fools was different than anything I’ve read before. I love that! As a romance reader, it’s easy to feel like you’re reading the same type of book over and over again. If you’re looking to mix it up, check out this fun, sexy, and swoony read!
