What do the Greek gods do when they're bored? Because they're always bored, so humans are the perfect players in their games.

Aphrodite owns love; she hasn't lost a competition on her turf in over three millennia. Apollo is on a mission to win. He's counting on it to finally get the one woman he's never been able to have. The two gods will choose their human players, and if Aphrodite can't get them together before the clock runs out, Apollo will get his way. And Aphrodite couldn't have that.

Lex and Dean are perfect for each other, they just don't know it yet. Dean is a perpetual bachelor, and a brooding, beautiful rock star. Lex is always with a man, but she'll never fully give herself up. Aphrodite has her work cut out for her, but if she can't make it work, no one can.

The gods have their own drama. Apollo killed Aprhodite's mortal love - they've got beef that's been dragging on for thousands of years. Ares, the douchebag, is forever trying to pick a fight, and trying to get Aphrodite into bed. And Persephone, Aphrodite's best friend, is the one person who Aphrodite shares everything with.

Follow the gods as they fight, laugh, cry, lose love, gain power, and make a mess with humans.

Ooohh. Greek mythology with a sexy modern twist? And that B-E-A-utiful cover! Bring it on I say!

The Greek gods have been here since absolutely forever and are bored. Using mortals as players they hold
competitions against each, the winner receiving a token from the loser. This time it's Apollo and Aphrodite against each other. Apollo picks a male player Dean , beautiful rockstar, bachelor and manwhore. While as Dita chooses Lex , always in a relationship but never in love and  Dean is the one man she needs to avoid. Can Apollo keep them apart long enough and get the one thing he wants most in return or will they inevitably come together? Dita is after all the goddess of love.

This story was actually good! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the gods and their conversations. Sometimes it felt like they were trying to portray themselves a bit too modern, it was forgiven  they would adapt and not stay in the past forever now would they? So yes they have nicknames, there are references to Facebook, Steve Jobs, Call of Duty etc. We meet sweet Hephaestus (Heff), arrogant Ares, best friend Persophone (Perry), Hades and the others.

I enjoyed the gods far better than the human participants sadly especially Apollo. I've always imagined him far more adaptive and modern (and handsome ;) ) than the other gods.
Dean and Lex with their relationship were good certainly, but not as enjoyable as reading about the gods and their slightly clichéd but nonetheless enjoyable dialogs.

All in all this is more of a light hearted read with a mixture of mythology, love, and some sexy scenes. I enjoyed it thoroughly so pick it up would ya!
