So we're back at the games.. This time we have Dita and Ares. I really liked this portion of the story. The push and pull between these two is intense, but the angst that gets wrapped up in their relationship is beyond that. This is what I was waiting for and now I cant wait to see where the author takes Dita next.
The second part of the story the human portion of the games... I'm not sure I fell as hard for. I really liked the characters that Staci Hart put together, but I felt the overall story was alittle slow and drawn out for the first half of the book which was a little disappointing. I felt myself struggling to get through the "earth" part of the book.
With all that being said- the way Staci Hart intertwines two worlds (Olympus and Earth) is one of the main reasons I keep coming back. Its like getting two stories for the price of one. You get the drama of two stories that tie in together and I really enjoy that.
AND boy oh boy did I fall even harder for Heff is this second installment. #TeamHeff. Give me more Heff, Staci Hart, gimme gimme more.
I am quickly becoming addicted to this series. Not only do we get a new couple that the God's are playing with (Dita to make them fall in love, and who she's competing with to keep them apart) but we also have also have the crazy twisted story of Dita, Ares, Apollo, Adonis and all of the Gods as well.
Watching the stories intertwine was awesome and I loved watching the tough time Dita had with her pick this go around. Kat and Dillion both are very similar in the fact that they are hard headed, very protective of their siblings, hot headed, and very competitive. They are explosive, and the first few meetings between these two did not go so well, and you could tell that when they finally gave each other a chance things were going to be amazing. Both of them have different backgrounds to explain why they are so protective of their siblings, Dillions is heartbreaking, and Kat's is just in her nature, but both would do anything for Owen and Kiki. Most of this book was spent watching Kiki and Owen trying to get these two to listen to reason and their hearts and give each other a chance, but sometimes it fell on deaf ears. I adored Kiki (Kat's sister) and Owen (Dillion's brother) though. They were adorable together, and even though they were the younger siblings, they at times were wiser than their brother and sister. Kat and Dillion definitely came a long way in this book and had to work through A LOT individually before they could give each other their hearts but it was definitely worth it in the end to see how far they came.
Now on to Olympus.... where to start? Dita's world is a mess after everything that happened in Paper Hearts. Adonis has shut her out, Ares and her are competing and that relationship is always volatile, and she's questioning everything she knows about Adonis's death. Watching Dita struggle with the competition, her feelings for Adonis and Ares as well as trying to find out the truth was hard. As the reader you know the truth, but trying to watch her figure it out was heartbreaking. You know what's good for her, and you want her to be happy, she is the Goddess of Love after all.. but she goes through A LOT in this book, but I think it was a good growing experience for her character, but I also believe that she is going to be going through a LOT more as the series continues, especially now that she knows the truth and after the ending of this book.
The Hearts and Arrows Series is amazing! I truly love seeing the Greek Gods and their stories playing out and seeing a new couple in each book. It is recommended to read the series in order if you want to understand everything that is going on in Olympus though. If you're a lover of Greek Mythology and modern day romance, then this is definitely a series to pick up. The writing is amazing, and the story flows beautifully!
The humans involved are Dillon and Kat, both self-isolating for their own different reasons. I admired Kat, she is an absolute bada$$ in the best way. The way she and Dillon mouth off at each other with guns blazing in their words was awesome, because Kat wasn't one to shrink back and take the heat and Dillon has met his match. Not to mention how sweet Kiki and Owen are. My favorite secondary standout character was Tanaka Katsu, Kat and Kiki's father. I loved all the scenes and conversations between he and his daughters.
The stakes felt higher in this book compared to the last, because Ares and Aphrodite have a battle that is personal. I adored how much stronger the friendship between Aphrodite and Apollo became and saw a lot of growth in Dita, too, when it came to her self-reflections. And Heff, let's not forget him because while he wasn't present for much of the story, his presence was most definitely felt when he was around. As for Perry, she's the very best friend ever. The saga of Dita's love issues continued to reel me in, along with Kat and Dillon so the feels were more intense, and I just can't wait to find out what will happen next because Dita has another competition. Fingers crossed that she opens her eyes to the one who loves her unconditionally.
