Five shinning stars for this one!!!

What can I say! I loved this book! and him. It was funny! Sweet and so adventurous in Hades's Hell. Oh my! It had an AMAZING humor, I couldn't stop laughing and laughing and oh you can't help adoring him.

I met Dionysus, first in For the Love of a God, he was a Greek god of wine and theater, and the world’s original playboy. And Eryx's cousin.

But when he met Josie, mouthy, Toronto baker of Italian heritage (you can't help but love her). He became restless, edgy

I received this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. All opinions are my own.

My Review:

I have always enjoyed Greek Mythology. Having just finished another Paranormal Romance of the same sub-genre, I was pretty sure that I would enjoy Sweet Hell as well. The one drawback? Dionysus. The Greek version of Bacchus, as a rule he is portrayed as the son of Zeus, the God of fertility and wine, a patron of the arts… and a real jerk. So did Rosanna overcome the very thing I dislike about hi

I loved this story! Another amazing tale by Rosanna Leo. Josie and Dionysus were so well depicted with real emotions. The imagery of Hell was quite frightening and shiver-worthy. But, the love revealed between Josie and Dionysus while they traversed Hell was so sweet and innocent in its own unique way. And Dionysus' sacrifice for Josie *sob*.....simply wonderful!.
I feel like I should say so much about this, but I just don't have many words beyond, "I loved this!" It was so sweet. I love Dionysus and Josie so much and had such a wonderful time watching their love grow. The depictions of the different layers of Hades were so well done, and I was holding my breath at the end even though I knew Rosanna Leo wouldn't be so cruel to me!

Oh Sweet Hell, I’m in love…. With Dionysus. The son of Zeus, the God of fertility and wine, a patron of the arts… and one fiiiiine man. When this story starts he is a playboy, and a cocky one at that. Then one step into one bakery and his life forever more has changed. See, at this bakery is Josie Marino, coffee and baker extraordinaire. And even though she is typically not his type, he is very soon finding himself enthralled with her – and she with him. Now if we can get them both to realize it ...more
Holy cow this book was fantastic. I loved how much Dionysus truly cared for Josie. It was super funny to watch as Dionysus came to realize that he was falling in love with someone. He never felt anything like it before and it was shocking for him to realize that he was willing to go to crazy extents to protect this unruly girl.
Dionysus is the fun loving god of wine and quickly became the god of three-somes. He was super horny all the time and it never failed to show him a good time. He loves his

Closely following the premise of For the Love of a God, Rosanna Leo has created another winner in Toronto with this story that features Dionysis and the smart-mouthed bakery clerk, Josie. While this is set as the second in a series – and the characters were introduced in the first book, they do stand alone. Although, you will want to read them both – they are that good.

Toronto is certainly a place to consider relocating to if on any given day one of the exquisitely detailed, humorous and witty

Another great book! I loved Dionysus! I had to laugh at his problem and how horrified he was about it! So funny and his choice of swears had me laughing as well. I really liked Josis as well, she took things alot better then Maia did but then she didn't have much choice cause she kinda got thrown into the celestial deep end! Interesting take on Orpheous as well! I suppose with what he went through he would go off the deep end but I think Dionysus was right when he said it was still no excuse for ...more

Dionysus, Greek God of Wine, is finding that he's in a slump. He decides to visit his cousin Eryx in Toronto but when he gets there a delicious smell wafts towards him. He enters an Italian bakery called Marino Brothers Bakery and blown away by vision strolling behind the counter. He becomes tongue tied something that hasn't happened before. Josie Marino works in her family but is underappreciated by her brothers. She's known guys like Dionysus Iros before but can't trust them as far as her famo ...more

Josie is a mouthy woman working in a bakery owned by her brothers. It’s the last place she wants to be. Josie wants to open a winery, or at least get some credit from her brothers. Then in walks a man who looks like a Greek god and is named for one too-Dionysus, only what Josie doesn’t know is, he IS a Greek god! And for some reason, he knows just how to irritate Josie.

Dionysus came to Toronto to figure out what has gotten into him. He has been restless and moody and he can’t figure out why. He

A review of Sweet Hell by Rosanna Leo

Rosanna Leo is one of my favorite new authors! My preferred paranormal reads, in fact, the ones I devour, are not too dark or heavy but rather, sexy, light and allow for escapism. They're about couples that need to fight internal and external battles to come together and they always have an element of silliness in them. What's more, I love it when what I read are refreshingly new, descriptively written and contain a world that makes me admire the author's ima

Second book in the series and PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING. As I expressed in my previous reviews how I love Greek Gods. So this book was another amazing read. What I absolutely loved about this book was how Josie doesn't really believe a Greek God could love her due to a past bad experience and how at every point H tries to prove her how much he does. The scenes described in Hades were so well described I could picture my self on this journey. Not that I want to ever be in such a sick place. The h's ...more

I read this book some time back! I am posting a review now because I read this one out of order, I realized that later. Since now, I have read the first is what I think.

I loved Dionysus. I liked his role in the previous book too...his character though I think is supposed to be hot and steamy. I felt it was quiet adorable.

I absolutely loved that stages in hell episode. Loved the was very well described. I felt like it was happening all in front of my eyes. I liked how the

Dionysus, Greek god of wine and theater, is the world’s original playboy. But lately, he has been restless, moody, and he knows something is wrong. His carefree and bacchanalian lifestyle is starting to feel like one long string of meaningless sexual escapades. Even worse, he is suddenly aroused by the idea of marriage. To top it all off, Josie Marino, the mouthy, disheveled, and eternally annoying woman who serves him coffee at the local bakery, sets him on fire.

Not bad, an easy reading book. There is a story about Orpheus & Eurydice in this book, reminds me of "The Edge of Never". I love that book.

A sweet frothy latte with deliciously dark depths.
This is my second book in Rosanna Leo's Greek Gods series and I liked this one as much, if not more, than the first. The heroine, Josie, is feisty and very easy to identify with. Dionysus, her reluctant suitor is the player with a deep-seated yearning to settle down. But the character who stole the show must surely be the Greek God's 'very big, immortal penis,' which takes on a life of its own. Very funny and irreverent, highly enjoyable, easy va

My, oh my! If I'd known Greek gods frequented Toronto bakery shops, I would have given up a college education and American Flag for pastries and a Canadian passport long ago. It made my day to see Dionysus, a god known for his excess and multitude of orgies, brought down my a tiny Italian baker with an attitude. His total confusion over his "affliction" since meeting Josie was too much. She thinks he's too full of himself. He thinks she's got a personal hygiene problem! These two are perfect for ...more

This was so creative! I love Greek mythology, so this was my kind of book. I appreciated how the author created her own version of Hades. WAY better than Dante. I felt so bad during that scene with Sean. But there were plenty of funny moments to offset it.

I received this from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This review is by Musing Maddie on behalf of Ravishing Romances. Read the full version here.

This book takes place after For the Love of a God
yet is not part of a series and can be read as a stand-alone story.

How are the sex scenes?

Delicious!!! Made me feel all squirmy!! Rosanna just gets the balance right. You are so invested in the relationship between the characters that the sex is fabulous, and well worth waiting for.

How are the story lines?

Original. The story picks up well from the first boo

Dionysus, the playbook of the gods, never expected to fall in love. It's inconceivable tothe god who invented the orgie. But something about Josie Marino makes him abandon this lifestyle and think of settling down...after all, she makes an awesome coffee (even if he's the most irritating customer ever in the bakery she works in).

This was another hot, quick story from Rosanna Leo. Dionysus' character growth was excellent, and I really liked him with someone like Josie, who doesn't give in easily

I laughed. I snorted. I ached. I cried. I loved.

It is not too often that I have this much emotional reaction to a book. For some reason Josie and Dionysus hit me smack in the heart. I liked both characters and what they do for each other.

The writing is fun when it should be and serious when necessary. I found myself highlighting my favorite quotes throughout the book. I can't wait until I can get another of Rosanna's books. I guess I'm a sucker for well written continuations of the Greek myths

I just adored this book!!!!
Only recently found Rosanna Leo but My-Oh-My now that I have she has become one of my Must-Read authors.
I wasn't sure what to expect from Dionysus after reading For the Love of a God (Greek God, #1) by Rosanna Leo(which is brilliant by the way..... Maia just cracks me up!) He was quite the unrepentant playboy so to watch his growth in this book was really nice. I especially loved the spoilers.....but (((very sweet sigh!!)))).

What can I say about this book? ...... I WANT MORE!! Dionysus is just a swoon worthy Greek God that pulls at your hearts strings!And sweet Josie Marino,you can't help but love her.

I love that the author made her characters leap off the page and perk up your attention.And that's way all the way to the end!You will not want to put this book down!!And when it ends,you'll be begging for more of these characters!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!! Don't want to blow it for the new readers so just let say "

This was a great take on Greek mythology! Dionysus is a character that is quite untouched in the literary world. I loved this novel and the characters that made this story so enjoyable. Dionysus as a character underwent a tremendous transformation in the novel. By the end, he made every page worth reading. I would recommend this novel to anyone who loves paranormal romance. You don't have to be a mythology buff to love this story.

Yet another great read from Rosanna Leo, this is the sequel to For the Love of a God, focusing this time on Dionysus and his 'will they, won't they?' relationship. Hot, sexy and a damn good story with engaging main characters. There's also a nice catch up with Eryx and Maia from the first book which I enjoyed.

Must now go and find the other books Rosanna has written and read them too, followed by tapping my fingers impatiently until the next book about Apollo comes out in 2013!

When you say you'd go to hell and back for someone you love, it's a figure of speech, but in this fabulous book by Rosanna Leo, it's a literal thing. Continuing with characters from For the Love of a God, this time we get to see ultimate playboy Dionysus lose his head for a woman. My favorite of her books so far!

This second entry in Leo's untitled series about the Greek gods and goddesses is every bit as entertaining as the first. Delving deeper into tales and concepts from Greek mythology, this one literally takes us on a journey through hell that's full of such rich imagery that any student of the Greek myths is sure to appreciate it. The tone is far from scholarly, however, and instead manages to make a journey through Hell seem like it's mostly a bit of sensual fun, though not without its terrors an ...more
