Hot as Hades
Ensnaring the ultimate bad boy has its risks…and its rewards.
It’s not easy being Hades. Constantly guarding his world against other meddling and ambitious deities is stressful work. So when a naked goddess falls directly into his lap, along with the news that he has to shelter her for the indefinite future, he is less than thrilled. Particularly since he can’t help bu...more
I've always had a fascination with the legend of Persephone and Hades. I was really drawn to it when I was younger and I hadn't at the time particularly liked it. If you believe in past lives I was supposedly a priestess in Persephone's temple.
Anyway, this was a fantastic(and more erotic) version of the legend and I loved it! It was sexy, funny, sassy and had just enough differences from the original to make a mark of its own.
If you're looking for some Greek Mythology with a liberal ...more
I don't expect the meaning of life when I read an erotica. But I do like some romance and humor thrown into a sexy story. This quick read by Rai is exactly how I like my erotica....fast-paced and hot! It's a fun, extremely sexy, mythologically-inspired quickie. And she does a fabulous job making us care about the characters in a short amount of time. She also manages to squeeze in some emotion and a sweet HEA. The sexy-hot meter on this one is in the Naga Viper chili pe ...more
Hot as Hades starts with a steamy bang and only gets steamier. ...more
The snark-y tone that Hades employed when talking about his job or Persephone's chiding 'don't be an idiot' comments made me smile. While I don't think he necessarily enjoyed his job, he definitely could do ...more
Unlike his siblings, Hades, God of the Underworld, lives a solitary life. Or rather, he does so until a naked woman falls right into his lap. Hades doesn’t know Persephone from Hera, but he can tell she’s a powerful goddess. After years of protecting his realm from interlopers, that makes him suspicious of Persephone. Yet there’s no denying his attraction to the beautiful goddess and before long Hades believes her story that she didn’t mean to enter his realm. Since she can’t leave, Had ...more
I surprised myself when I laughed reading an erotic novella!
And, even if it was steamy, it was surprisingly "chaste" for an erotic read.
Great job! :D
Holy Hades this was HOT! I’m always here for Hades/Persephone tbh, but this was so good! I adored how the relationship developed between them, the sexual tension was incredible and just ugh. I enjoyed how Alisha Rai changed the mythology to make it... not incest. Hades was awesome. My only complaint was Persephone was a bit too soft? But that’s just my head canon that Persephone is one BAMF.
I've been wanting to read a Hades/Persephone retelling for a while now and since this erotica was only 99 pages, I decided to pick it up.
For an "erotic book", it was very light on sex, but I didn't mind at all. Frankly, I've read erotica that's been 98% sex and they're pretty forgettable. I need plot development to really enjoy a story (erotica or otherwise) and Hot as Hades took the time to develop a new spin on the myth and develop the characters! It was done very nicely.
In this retelling, H ...more
Nice hot little story that one!
I liked the fact that despite Hades's being an ancient God, He is still cool and collected (and sexy as Hell - pun intended).
Just one problem - Why so short?
If it was longer Hades could have acted out some more as a bad-boy sexy God.... I just love bad-boy sexy Gods (or half gods with a leathal hand, a gotee and a name that's starts with V....)
Anyway - GO READ!
Hades is alpha, gruff and dirty in bed, while Persephone is very Mother Earthy, sweet and willing to be corrupted.
Almost the entire novella had H and h together building the relationship, not much exploring the Underworld or the mythology, but still a very sexy, fun read! As always this author never disappoints!
