Liz has been part of my writer tribe for a while now. Which makes me ashamed to say how long it has taken me to delve into her books worlds. So, I won't. But now that I have I need more. More books please Liz. Today, we are talking about Manhatten.
The glory days of Ancient Greece are long gone, and the gods of the Old World are scattered across the globe. As their popularity dwindles, as their worshipers forget, their power fades. Luckily for Aphrodite, she’s a household name. After all, how could anyone ever forget the Greek goddess of Love?
Unfortunately, no one seems to know or care about her divinity. In a world of skeptics and technology-crazed mortals, loneliness and boredom have taken hold. Her life consists of romance advice columns, martini bars, and flings with empty-headed men—until she meets Loki.
She’s intrigued: it’s been decades—centuries even—since she laid eyes on another god, particularly one outside her pantheon. In their short time together, she realizes just how much she needs the companionship of one of her own. Loki, however, seems more interested in catching a murderous maenad than swapping stories about the old days.
Can she convince Loki to stay and make her life a little less lonely, or will he persuade her to join him on his quest for more worshipers? His questionable tactics make her uneasy, but how can she turn down the opportunity to live as she once did: freely, powerfully, and lustfully as Aphrodite of Olympus.
I AM SO GLAD I WAITED TO POST MY REVIEW. Now I get to use the stunning new book covers and some on. Doesn't it make you want to pick up the book? I mean those lusty eyes, almost closed, enjoying whatever that man is doing to her neck. It makes me want to get my hands on it. The blurb, gives just enough mystery to keep me from tearing the pages apart. I mean, apart from the fact it is an e-book.
This story mixes two brilliant mythological gods together, Aphrodite and Loki. The Goddess of love and the trickster. I mean could you want anything more. Even though this story is a short story, it bring all the great things from a fully fledged novel.
Aphrodite, known as Rose on her love advice column, lives in Manhattan and works for a magazine. She's bored of her life and takes to a nightclub to find another human to conquer. Little does she know Loki is there too, and thus begins their erotic affair. He's hunting down a threat that he just can't take care of on his own, not since human stopped praying to the Old gods.
This fast paced novella is definitely worth a read, and will no doubt captivate your mind. I would recommend it, but please note this is an erotic story and there are some graphic scenes.
