Being the lord of dark, terrifying things makes Hades the most feared god in existence. He’s also the most bored. When the guardians request his assistance, he is quick to grant it and make his way to the human realm. After all, creating havoc is what he does best. When his path crosses with a beautiful female, he finds her honesty refreshing, making his desire burn hotter. It’s when she summons him for a favor that he will finally get to name his terms.
When tall, dark and oh-so-sexy walks into her store, Mia suddenly finds herself marked by a god. Saddled with a curse that rips her world apart on a nightly basis, she decides bargaining with Hades to remove it might prove beneficial. Of course, requesting a favor from the lord of the Underworld comes with a huge price. Namely thirty days in Hell as his guest.
Hades is only out for some fun, but Mia isn’t playing his games. She intends to get through her agreement despite the yearning she feels for him. Problem is, the longer they are together the more she begins to see beyond the lord of evil to the troubled man beneath. Now she must decide if he is worthy of the only thing she has left to give.
I received this book from an honest review.
**Clapping** Oh man!! Hades!! I was super psyched to get this book. I love his cool, casual, arrogant self. I love how he is a bad guy but he isn’t really a bad guy….I mean Anti-Hero all the way right??!! He is the Lord of the Underworld after all so he does do SOME bad things.
Mia is a typical human just trying to survive these dark days on Earth. She is trying to help humans and trying to just live while praying the Guardians can end the war with Lowan. When she meets Hades, he thinks she is just fun time head never knowing what his brother Zarek has planned for him.
I totally loved this storyline. I enjoyed what Hades does to move the story of the missing Phoenix along while also realizing he wants more than JUST the Underworld. His desire for Mia makes him want to be better but also fear, much like our other heroes, he is not worthy of her purity and light.
I seriously don’t know what book I want next??? I think as of right now I am praying it is Aiyden’s book because after what happened to him, he needs to claim his mate plus claim his fated title.
