Synopsis:
Even the gods cannot betray the will of the stars.
It’s been a hundred years since she’s warmed my bed, a hundred years spent waiting for her. Now we’ll compete again in a game that matters little to me. But my prize is far greater than a token to be paid for a favor — I want her.
And for the first time in a very long time, I have the chance to keep her.
Because now the ground has shifted, tilted in my favor, and with her footing unsteady, she will fall.
I will catch her.
This time, I won’t let go.





My rating: 

*3.5 STARS* 

The gods are at it again. This time Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love against Ares, the God of War. 
You might think it's love at first sight when Dillon and Kat see eachother, but a few words said wrong and these two are on the war path. They don't realize they have more in common than they think. 

The whole concept of the plot is so great! The gods playing against eachother to win so we not only get to experince the gods, but also the humans involved in their games. 

I was honestly struggling with this book... not because of the story, the characters or the writing- just my pet peeve. I can have issues with multiple points of view. Say it's a love story and we have the POV of the two falling in love- no problem but if you added a random POV of their friend or something now that would get on my nerves. The point for me is that I want to get into the story, live the characters and with multiple POV's that just doesn't happen for me, I get annoyed to be interrupted and suddenly thrown at somebody else. With this particular book I could easily have lived with four POV's, two gods and the two humans, but then suddenly there is the sister's POV for example and it just bothered me. I really wanted to like it and in a sense I did, I just got frustrated is all. 

Overall, seriously the writing is so good, I really like the storyline and yes great characters. Not a bad book at all so if you like multiple POV's, go for it! 





About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
