Let’s talk about an AMAZING book. Seriously soooo good. I finished Hotter than Hades earlier this month and thought to myself, there is no way I am going to fall for any of these Gods as hard as I have for Hades. His devotion to Cressy is just. Gahhhhh. Well then I met Apollo and holy fucking shit. Move over Hades, Christian, and Nash because these guys are my new favorites (sorry guys! 💔). Let’s get into the swoons ❤
Please note that this series should be read in order as the 2nd book does contain spoilers.
Okay so we end the first book, Hotter Than Hades, and Cressy’s bestie Ella who is a ghost has been poofed away by Zeus. Cressy is devastated as expected and we are left wondering what happened to our favorite bestie. Well Zeus brought Ella back in the body of a woman named, wait for it, Cinderella. Snort. Ella only vaguely remembers her previous life but knows that she is definitely not this Cinderella person. As she is recovering from a long term coma and accident her mother puts her in a recovery center. A recovery center run by a couple guardians, Pollux and Achilles. Ella’s favorite activity in this place she is being kept in is to visit the horse stables at night. You know, to listen to Pollux and Achilles have sex… 🔥🔥🔥
Her last escapade in the stables is super hot but she gets caught. Pollux and Achilles don’t know how to react to Ella, their little peeping Tina. They immediately feel an unexplainable connection with her but don’t act on their feelings. The next morning Apollo and Castor arrive. Apollo, the sun God, and Castor, another guardian as well as Pollux’s twin brother, have come to meet Cindy or Ella as we know her. Apollo promised to marry Cinderella after her father passed and he feels it is time to live up to his obligations. He doesn’t expect their meeting to carry so much heat though or that her connection with he and his guardians would be so immediate. A quick call to Zeus confirms that Ella is indeed his fated, his wife.
I seriously love the relationship that develops between Ella and her men. Castor, Pollux, Achilles, and Apollo are so fucking swoony. The dynamic between the characters is amazing and the steam is off the charts. I seriously think this is one of my favorite Serena Akeroyd books. It’s that good. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Serena Akeroyd is a fucking word wizard and she once again doesn’t disappoint. You need to grab this book ASAP, you definitely won’t regret it. Now to just wait until the next God and guardians I can swoon over ❤
I want to take you all on a journey. A journey of sexiness. Of course this journey includes Serena Akeroyd because everything she writes is pure freaking gold. I am seriously swooned. Swooned by some men. Hades, Christian, and Nash. This book is good. Really good. Let’s get into it dolls ❤
Okay so we have our beautiful female main character, Cressida or Cressy. She is a singer that lives a pretty solitary life. She doesn’t have any family or friends, other than her one friend Ella who she doesn’t get to see very often due to her tours and her friend’s busy job. Cressy’s life was changed a few months back when she was assaulted by another singer at the company she works for. She was unable to take action against her attacker and since then has felt depressed and fearful of those around her. She is only surrounded by her manager, crew, and a fellow singer she is touring with. The story starts off emotionally dark but Cressy is a very likable character. She is still strong even after the turmoil she has experienced and still finds something to look forward to when her friend Ella has taken some time off to come to one of her shows.
Nash is touring with Cressy and he can’t help his attraction to her. What makes her more attractive? The fact that he can see she is attracted to him but fights it. He spends all his time in close contact with her and can’t keep his eyes off her. He has seen how her mood has changed, how her spirit has diminished. When her friend Ella comes to see their show he sees her light up again. Cressy and Ella have a night of fun. They get to catch up and Ella is able to bring some fun back into Cressy’s life.
A horrible turn of events brings Cressy to a new low. Taken into the arms of Nash he helps her through her troubles and introduces her to some men that can help. Hades and Christian. Oh em gee. Hades is so fucking swoony I just can’t, I literally can’t. Immediately upon meeting Christian and Hades it is clear that there is something between them. Something out of their control, something fated. Hades, Christian, and Nash begin to swoon Cressy as she is thrown into a world of what she believed to be folklore. The love that develops between the group of them is amazing. I constantly found myself giggling and smiling like an idiot. The men help pull Cressy out of the darkness that has become her life. They help her find herself and they help her seek retribution for the wrongs that have been dealt to her.
This book was really fucking good. Like super good. One of my favorite reads so far this year. It was so interesting learning more about the Gods and their guardians and this awesome world Serena Akeroyd has created. She just has the ability to make me so freaking swoony that I feel a little heartbroken when it’s over. She also really knows how to bring the steam. I swear she is the queen of steamy scenes. Plus, this book is one in a series that will continue looking at each of the gods find their mates. The next book, is about Cressy’s friend Ella. Swoon. I can’t wait to keep reading these books. Serena can’t come out with them fast enough ❤
“I wanted her to know that I would kneel for one woman and one woman alone in this world, and that was her.”
