LOVER, DIVINE
Mythos: Gods & Lovers #1
Author A. Star

For fans of the Oracle of Delphi series…and for those who aren’t…

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.
WARNING: For readers 18+ only. Contains adult language and sexual situations.

MY REVIEW:

The characters are charming, the story is intriguing, and the sexual situation are rousing.
I feel like if you love romance, fantasy, and mythology then you should definitely read this book. I liked the conversations between Siobhan and Liam because it shows that Siobhan is a strong spirited young woman who will not give up her virginity easily. Sadly though as the story proceeds Siobhans' desire for Liam/Apollo takes over her personality, which leads to unfortunate events. Also Liam starts out as a mysterious likable guy and sadly turns into an ass. The fact that he is a God does not excuse his horrible behavior. I still liked the book is was a good read that held my attention even at times I was cursing at Liam/Apollo. A. Star is a good writer who knows how to get a reader involved in the story and characters. 
This story was a set up for more books to come, which makes sense it felt like there was more to the story when I finished the book.
My only real dilemma was with the prologue. Books like this usually have a prologue and I guess the author wants to intrigue the reader before the story begins. However, the prologues are never needed. Actually this prologue almost prevented me from reading the book. The prologue talks about fate and how he has everything already planned out for everyone, but at the same time the narrator/Siobhan makes it seem like she had a choice in the matter. If fate has everything already decided then how could the narrator or anyone else try to change anything. That is the conclusion I came to after reading the prologue, which made me think why read the book if the narrator doesn't actually have the ability to choose her fate. Turns out the narrator has a choice of paths that fate has created for the her.To me the prologue was senseless because the story captivated me after the fourth page and could stand alone without it. 

My Rating:
The book was good, but not everyone will enjoy it.
