Title: Lover, Divine (Mythos: Gods & Lovers #1).
Author: A. Star.
Genre: Mythology.
Publication Date: February 25, 2014.

Purchase: Amazon ; B&N (Lover, Divine is at the promo price of $.99 for the duration of the tour).

Born into one of the wealthiest families in Ireland, Siobhan Law has status, privilege, and a secret: The Greek gods of Olympus and their kingdom in the clouds are real, and her family acts as one of their agents on Earth.

When the beautiful immortal celeste Liam Argyros shows up claiming to have come to Earth to deal in the affairs of the divine, Siobhan finds herself unable to resist his charms. New to the game of passion and seduction, she quickly ends up in over her head, sinking deeper with every attempt Liam makes to win her over.

But Liam’s divine mission is far more complex than she ever imagined and nothing is truly as it seems. Because Liam has a secret of his own: He is Apollo, Olympian god of the Sun, and his mission will never be complete until he has claimed Siobhan’s heart forever.




Review:

Lover, Divine was a fascinating story for me. I don’t read mythology books all that often, mainly because they confuse me to no end. But I did love the sound of Lover, Divine (and the cover) and was looking forward to reading it.

The book flowed really well and I flew through this book, not wanting to put it down. The author wrote an intriguing plot which kept me guessing throughout, and I loved all the twists. As far as enjoying the story goes, I did like it a lot, but there were just a couple of things I wished were different.

My issue was with the main characters, Siobhan and Apollo. It’s not that I didn’t like Siobhan but she was kind of frustrating. She wanted Apollo to be honest and berated him when he wasn’t but she forgave him so easily every time. Apollo I didn’t really like at all and it seemed the first half of the book, everything was solved by him putting his hand up Siobhan’s skirt. I’m sure he was irresistible but… I must say though I did love the side-cast of characters. Rupert and Vicky were great characters and their involvement was perfect. I liked Melissa and Garrett too and thought they brought a lot to the story.

I also loved the action. It was written wonderfully with a few unexpected turns for me. Fast paced and brave, the action made the book feel complete for me and as it was ending, it just kept getting better. I did kind of wish the action had started a little sooner, but Lover, Divine was still a great book for me. It was always entertaining and I actually enjoyed a mythology book without being confused! I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Rating:
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
