Vane, the son of Athena is a Demi-god trying to stay hidden in the human world. You see, the Gods were put to sleep for their sins in the immortal realm. He and his siblings fight for humans, to keep them safe and hide out. He’s been enjoying a very sexual relationship with Brianne, who is a Guardian for centuries. Neither view the other as their mate but definitely enjoy each other’s company. Their protection of the humans is in the form of fighting human trafficking. This is a purpose very near and dear to his sister’s heart.
In this short snippet of a story, Vane and his siblings are trying to rescue a young girl who was kidnapped because of her father’s wrong doings. They track her down and rescue her and I think this will set the scene for the other books in the series. I enjoyed this story. It was easy to follow, a little exciting and a whole lotta steamy. Vane is an alpha male who’s just hot as can be. There’s not a whole lot of story regarding Brianne but I’m hoping for more as the series goes on. I’d love to really get into another paranormal series and I’m kind of excited this might be one.
It starts at the heroine’s friends’ wedding to the heroine’s ex. She was asked to be a bridesmaid basically to rub it in her face she wasn’t marrying the groom. I know, not a real friend. To add insult to injury she was put in a dress that was WAY too small for her figure but she did because of pride and to let them know she wasn’t broken by their marriage. It was also said that the groom was a big time cheater, even sleeping with some of the other bridesmaids. Ewww! Well, the best man, the hero of the story comes to the aid of our heroine when her dress literally splits down both sides, exposing her upper assets to the crowd of onlookers. Yes, at church.
After that, they have a heat charged moment in a dressing room, which is interrupted.
This wasn’t a bad book but I never engaged with the characters. I didn’t dislike them but I didn’t love them either. There really wasn’t a lot of story, maybe due to the length, but I just felt kind of “Meh”.
There was a lot of steamy sex scenes but those fell short for me too. I don’t know but this one just didn’t gel for me and I won’t be reading more in this series.
