Dionysis, son of Zeus, womanizer, self centered god of Wine & Ecstasy wooos Ari until he gets her to to have sex with him...scared at how she makes him feel....he sneaks out out of her bed in the middle of the night.

Ari tracks him down and finds him flirting with two young, sexy women. He shoos her away and tells her that it meant nothing and she is better off without him. He is not the commitment type and has a rule...one night man-He enjoys the pursuit but once she "does her" he is done with her.

Dio's step-mother decides to teach him a lesson and take away his memory and give him amnesia. Ari takes advantage of him and tells him she is his fiance. He spends the next few weeks trying to find things to jog his memory until he meets up with his friends who help him return his memory and get rid of his amnesia.

At first he is mad but then realizes that during his amnesia he has changed and become a better man. He also realizes that he has come to love Ari so he keeps his secret about his returned memories and god status and pushes for a wedding to her....planning everything down to the last detail.

Ari has a secret of her own. She was engaged to a man who took money for the wedding from her parents and took off with it. She was left at the alter and her family was humiliated. With Hera's help starts to believe that Dio's set up this wedding as a way to pay her back and does not believe that he loves her.

What a mess....but this book has a HEA and everything is resolved. It is a nice second book to the first: A Touch of Greek (Out of Olympus #1) by Tina Folsom and I assume this is an ongoing series. Triton from book one and Dio's from this book are friends with Hermes and Eros....I would imagine one of them may be the subject of the next in this series.

It is a fun, easy read...great premise, plot and you get lost in the story and I love the characters.....but it has some cheesy romance novel dialog and is at times difficult to accept. I loved Tina Folsom's Scanguard Vampire Series but found that far superior to this series.
