He was the most beautiful man in Olympus.
And if I wasn’t careful, he was going to be my death.
In the ultra-modern city of Olympus, there’s always a price to pay. Psyche Dimitriou knew she’d have to face Aphrodite’s jealous rage eventually, but she never expected her literal heart to be at stake…or for Aphrodite’s gorgeous son to be the one ordered to strike the killing blow.
Eros has no problem shedding blood. Raised to be his mother’s knife in the dark, he’s been conditioned to accept that he’s more monster than man. But when it comes time to take out his latest target…he can’t do it. Confused by his reaction to Psyche’s unexpected kindness, he does the only thing he can think of to keep her safe: he binds her to him, body and soul.
Psyche didn’t expect to find herself married to the glittering city’s most dangerous killer, but something about Eros wakens a fire inside her she’s never felt before. As lines blur and loyalties shift, Psyche realizes Eros might take her heart after all…and she’s not sure she can survive the loss.
With Psyche and Eros story being one of my favorite mythological tales, I think my expectations were set a little high from the beginning. However, it didn’t stop me from absolutely loving the romance between Psyche and Eros. This had the Huntsman vibes, which resulted in a marriage of convenience, totally loved that twist. And from there, I was pretty eager to keep going.
From the high steam factor and just the inevitable connection between the both of them, there was no doubt in my mind that these two were meant to be.
I devoured the first half of the book and there was just so much to love. But the big thing that kept me from giving this a 5 was the plot. It just seemed a bit underdeveloped, I was definitely expecting a bit more especially with a huge cloud hanging over Psyche’s future. It kind of just stayed at a plateau from the beginning.
It’s a standing ovation for both characters and their romance that’s forever sizzling. I’m still invested in the rest of this series especially Psyche’s other sisters!
