Since I was old enough to understand I knew I was worthless. A girl child when my powerful politician of a mother prayed for a boy. Someone to mold in her image. I stayed out of her way, until I couldn’t, and she made me regret every stumble, every misstep, every breath.
Like clockwork, she paid off doctors to drag me into a mental hospital at her most crucial career moments. I rotted behind cinderblock walls for six months at a time. It became my life…until I met him.
Ash. A one night stand in the back seat of his car turns into my only solace while locked away. He pretends I’m just another patient, until I force him to see me…the woman…Kory…someone who needs him more than anyone else.
My mother is a monster. I’m nothing more than a pawn. But Ash…he’s my salvation.
Hades and Persephone like you’ve never seen them. This is magic, this is menace, this is myth…with a dark twist.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Mythology nerd here. I was mega pumped to read this story because who does not know the love story of Persephone and Hades??
I loved the twist of the story that Demeter, Persephone’s mom, is a politician because weren’t all the mythological Gods essentially politicians??? She hides her daughter away in a mental institution when she is on tour for the Presidential campaign. She is also a super awesome mom….said no one ever in this book!!
Hades or Ash, is a super great doctor who is flummoxed as to why this patient is constantly locked up with no read diagnosis. He is also stunned stupid that this patient is also the hottie he picked up at the bar last night for some hot car sex action….whoops!! That is getting really close and personal with your patients!!!
The couple keep building the chemistry before they erupt, and Ash is fully invested in helping his patient out of the hospital. A few twists and turns later, and we see Demeter doing her best to derail the couple. We get a visit from Zeus and well its good to see he is still cheating on his wife Hera….again Mythology you make me so happy!!
I loved the story and look forward to more from the series because again…mythology nerd!!
