The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…
It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.
Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.
But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.
Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.

Technically this is a re-read! but as its only, my second read I’m just gonna roll with. The first time I read this was last summer. I have chosen to re-read it now because the 3rd book is out next week! and because of this, I haven’t read the 2nd book either so I’m planning on reading that next in preparation!
Anyway back to this book. This book is a spin-off from the Covenant Series and is set after all the events that happen in this series. I wasn’t a huge Seth fan when I read that series so I was intrigued to see what this one was about.
This story is told in the first person and from both Seth and Josie’s point of view, the flow of the story is good I really liked the transition between the two characters dialogues.
I really liked the storyline and the chemistry between Seth and Josie is off the charts! I don’t know how she does it but Jennifer L. Armentrout always manages to create characters that are dripping with sex appeal and Seth is sex personified! I had no problems imagining his smoking hotness!
Seth really grows in this book, I definitely had more empathy reading about him from his perspective and I can now say I’m a huge fan of his. I really hope he gets his happy ending.
I really liked Josie’s character, she is emotionally strong and takes everything in her stride. I also liked that she accepted all of Seth’s mistakes and saw passed them to the person he really is.
It’s pretty obvious that I really liked this book, as it is a re-read and I’m planning on reading The Power next. My rating: 4/5
*PSA: Jennifer L. Armentrout is having a Teaser Tuesday giveaway over on her facebook page today:
