He was the most beautiful man in Olympus.
And if I wasn't careful, he was going to be my death.
*A scorchingly hot modern retelling of Psyche and Eros that's as sinful as it is sweet.*
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.

I couldn't put it down. Psyche was perfect, I especially love how she was a curvy girl. I loved Eros's confidence in their relationship. This was sweet and sexy and I am already anxiously awaiting the next book in this series!
So we continue to follow with the Dimitriou sisters. Still, this time our lead is Psyche as she is pulled into a marriage with the delicious and deadly Eros (not my words, but I agree with this description) to save her life, a life that he was initially asked to end.
We follow them to play a game of husband and wife and play the media and public, making them think they are entirely in love with each other as they fall in love with each other!
FOLKS, I have discovered that I love a particular type of enemy to lovers; enemies to lovers who pretend to be married and pretend to be in love. The moment this deal was made, I was so giddy and involved. I knew this book was going to give me everything!
We had a plus-size Goddess who is intelligent, kind, cunning and played everyone who underestimated her. We got a love interest, a bad guy (literally) who reconnected to his humanity and emotions because he was finally given the change!
ALSO, this world with titles and legacies is captivating on its own; like this world is alluring with its politics and power structures, I need more. I am so invested in the new Zeus and Hera, and I WANT A STORY FROM THEM! I need an enemy to lovers!
My only complaint…. Nah, it’s not a complaint at all, more like a small note. I want the books more extended, so the ending where everything gets resolved has a little bit more room to breathe.
Anyway, Katee Robert continues to earn my love and money, so I FULLY recommend this book!
