When Lyleia Naiad was head-hunted by Brimstone, Inc., for her job as Executive Assistant to a high-powered billionaire demigod, she was given one directive—do NOT fall in love with Castor Dioskouri. Doesn’t matter if he’s the son of Zeus and can electrify a room with a single glance. As an ex-nymph, she possesses a unique ability—a gift from the goddesses to protect nymphs from the randy gods—to resist her boss's charms.
Or so she thought.
He insists she accompany him to an alpha wolf shifter mating ceremony, an event where the pheromones fly, and so do clothes...and inhibitions.
Goddesses save her, because Castor has stolen into Lyleia’s heart, and she’s not so sure she can hold out much longer...

Review

What a fun novella, which had me wishing for more. Novellas are always tough to read especially when you have a lot of ground to cover. I think Abigail did a great job with the limited amount of words that she had. Greek mythology is a huge fave and any sort of retelling or just a story in that world in general, I’m here for all of it.

With the simmering attraction that has been brewing underneath between Castor and Lyleila, I just couldn’t wait for everything to unfold. From the office to sharing a room at a wolf shifter mating ceremony, something is bound to happen.

I enjoyed this novella immensely, we had some laughs, some fanning because these two are hot together (hello, nymph!) and a deeper story of Leila’s past. I felt the connection all around with these two and I’m hoping we get to see them again in this series.

Loved this read and can’t wait to read more! The Demigod Complex is a great start to this series, I just know we’ll be in for a fun ride.

major thank you to entangled publishing for the complimentary copy in consideration for a review. this does not affect my opinion of the book or review.

About Abigail Owen

She attempted to find a practical career related to her favorite pastime by earning a degree in English Rhetoric (Technical Writing). However, she swiftly discovered that writing without imagination is not nearly as fun as writing with it. No matter the genre, she loves to write feisty heroines, sexy heroes who deserve them, and a cast of lovable characters to surround them (and maybe get their own stories).

10+ years since finishing her first book, Abigail is now a multi-award-winning author who has published 22 novels/novellas/short stories under two pen names with more to come. She is also the owner/operator of Authors On A Dime, a company which provides a la carte services to help authors like herself. Abigail loves every part of the publishing journey and considers herself freaking lucky to be living out her dream every day.

Abigail currently resides in Austin, Texas, with her own personal hero (who she totally married!) and their two children, who are growing up way too fast.
