I have been looking forward to this book and was not disappointed! I loved Apollo and had a strange urge to track down all the women that hurt him and broke his heart so I could bitch slap them for what they did to him (and maybe have them detained under the mental health act, clearly they were insane!). Apollo is such a sweet and good hearted guy! He has a lot of darkness to contend with in the form of his prophecies but he still manages to keep a bright outlook on life.

Apollo has opened a resort(Helios). His sister Artemis is there to check it out. Apollo is nervous because he is expecting the Travel Chic (a blogger on resorts) to arrive at anytime. He is also troubled that his visions have been of a young woman who has her heart riped out of her chest. He never sees her face but because he can't see visions of people close to him he is worried. Patience (the Travel Chic), has arrived at Helios with her two best friends. They trying to get her mind of a

Claps and cheers! What a terrific book! I really loved this one. It felt so real, so normal, with the normal girl problem about their weights and everything. This book seriously can relate to a lot of woman. Apollo was such a sweetheart to Patience and the perfect Prince Charming ^-^. Mhmmmm and so gorgeous..

Again met Hades [YES!!] I like him, he's so full of mystery. And Artemis, hope she'll find her man, now that Apollo is with his goddess all the time :):).

I adored this book. Apollo, a Greek god, runs a vacation resort named Helios and meets vacation blogger Patience O’Conner who is anything but patient; this stills makes me smile and tickles my sense of humor.

Apollo and Patience were fun characters to get to know, the story flowed smoothly and had some delicious hot scenes along with a good dose of humor.

My favorite of the series!
Another fabulous entry in Leo's series about the Greek pantheon. This one features Apollo, and is substantially different from the first two books in the series, though that is all to the good in my opinion. Where For the Love of a God had a down-to-earth practical(ish) feel, and Sweet Hell had something of a fairytale feel to it with their journey through Hades, this one has a very exotic feel to go with the exotic setting. The setting comes alive so well here that at times you almost feel like ...more

Rosanna Leo is a new Author to me and I have to say I
enjoyed this book so much.
Her writing style is lively and fun which also comes through in the storyline, it’s a fun sexy read.

This is a story about the Gods set in the modern day and what a setting Helios Resort is, I want to go to Helios and I want to meet a sexy God.
It's fast pacing you won’t find yourself bored at any part in this story and it's a lovely love story that will make you smile, laugh a little and want that HEA.

Oh God! Apollo is so freaging perfect in every way imaginable, he`s so hooooot! He`s my favorite of all the greek gods, i don`t care if he can be a merciless destroyer at times when he`s moody, it`s just something about him ahh! and whenever i see a romance that features him, Apollo the sun god, i have to get it no matter what. I am in love with that god. Apollo is beyond gorgeous, he`s the most beautiful of all the greek gods by the way. A man or a god like him could have anyone and everything ...more
Dear god, let me count the ways of how much I loved this book! It was perfect, sweet, funny, and had plenty of romance.
At first I was really reluctant to read this book when I found out it was about Apollo. I've read the Greek myths surrounding this god and some of it was kind of frightening when you think about being on the receiving end of his "Affections". Also I'm a huge fan of Sherrilyn Kenyons books and in her Dark Hunter series Apollo is a complete prick, and for a while it was really har

Apollo Dellos is the owner of Helios, a swanky resort in the heart of Mexican Riviera, happens to also be the Greek god Apollo. He's also been gifted with seeing visions of the future but has to be touching the person to know if it's either he or she from said vision. Lately Apollo's visions have been very dark and disturbing. Apollo is also worried about Patience O'Connor a travel blogger with exacting demands.

This is my favorite in this series so far! While it didn't jump into the action as quickly as For the Love of a God or Sweet Hell, Apollo is easily my favorite god so far. Some of my feelings come from the fact that he was always one of my favorite Greek gods, but mainly it was just him in this story.

This story is sweet, like them all, but Apollo and Patience's relationship felt more real and more believable to me. It felt like it built at a more natural pace and when they finally came together

Book 3 from the Greek God series and I'm SUNBURNT from all that HEAT Mr Apollo was radiating. So well we have a Greek God who is hot and everything. I mean c'mon he is the God of Sun??! So well he owns a fancy resort in Mexico and who is his next tourist? Our lovely insecure, broken, one-with-a-miserable-past-experience, one-with-family-problems, chubby, smart, and ALL OF THAT.

This series just keeps getting better!!!

I started this book and just could not put it down (damn you work why must you spoil my reading time!! LOL) Honestly loved these two. Patience is just adorably awkward to start off and really has no idea what to make of Apollo. And Apollo... well... he is just so beautifully flawed. Wanting to be loved for WHO he is as opposed to WHAT he is but thinking himself unworthy until along comes Patience and he just has no defense against her!!!
I HIGHLY recommend

Rosanna Leo's Sunburn makes an excellent addition to her gods series. Set in the warm, tropical, Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, you can almost feel the tropical breezes as you read. But that's not the only heat she brings to this book. *fans face*

I wasn't sure how I'd feel about Apollo after falling in love with Ms. Leo's Eryx and Dionysus, but boy does she deliver the golden god on a hot platter. *fans face again*

There's a little something for everyone here. Mystery, erotic passion, adventure, fr

not to sure of exactly what to say,but i loved it!!! and even though i knew apollo would get his H.E.A. from you, i was crying reading this book. so, so, so, so good!!! and i'm so curious to see how you plan on making us care for hades as much as your other boys, since he's been the baddie.
and as to not give to much away nice little twist on the H.E.A. from the first 2 books :)

Great gonads of Titan! I thought Dionysus was awesome but then I met Apollo. *drool* sorry let me wipe that up.

Okay, Patience is a travel blogger with a mission of honesty and she has been personally hurt in the past. Apollo can't lie and owns the resort she is reviewing. There is an unseen, unknown danger at first but the lovers cautiously enjoy each other. Then all hell breaks loose. Well okay just a bit of it but it was enough.

The characters are easy to love. The story made me laugh then ma

Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was a well written, enjoyable read that had good flow in addition to being light and witty. I really enjoyed the tone of our hero and heroine.

Our heroine, Patience, is a real woman. She has self-image issues and relationship worries that I think many of us readers can relate to. She is also not a size 0. I loved her! Apollo is hilarious, especially his curse words. I loved how he stayed in character. My one complaint

This book was about Patience, a travel blogger, who visits a resort in Mexico as part of her job. While there she meets the owner Apollo with whom she has an immediate attraction. The catch? He's not just named Apollo, he is THE Apollo, as in Greek god Apollo.

I don't want to put spoilers in this review so I won't touch on the rest of the plot. I thought this was a fun read and I enjoyed it a lot. The characters were likable, it was a creative storyline, & had some pretty hot scenes. I liked the

Another wonderful read by one of my new favorite authors.

Apollo is smoking hot....pun totally intended. It took me a little bit to warm up to Patience but in the end I thought she was wonderful and worthy of the love of Apollo. This book made me want to jump on a plane for a nice little holiday in the Mexican Riviera....

I am looking forward to reading more on Artemis and Hades.

My one complaint about this book....where were Eryx and Dionysus??? I was hoping maybe Apollo might have invited them to

What's not to love about Apollo and his 'celestial nostrils'?
The third instalment in Rosanna Leo's Greek Gods PNR series has all the elements I have come to expect in her writing: highly likeable characters, lots of irreverent humour and a light-hearted take on the Ancient Greek myths.
I wasn't crazy about Patience's girlfriends, they seemed underdeveloped as characters and Doris' accent grated on me, but ot

Sunburn is the third book in the Greek God series. I have really enjoyed all three books and can not wait for the next one.
There's more going on at famed Helios Resort own by Apollo than meets the eye and the famous blogger Patience is going to figure it out, even if it kills her... which is exactly what Death has planned.
Apollo, a god who can not tell a lie is always there in the nick of time to save Patience.

I read this in two sittings and would reccomend it as a fun, entertaining romantic fantasy/comedy that involves a hero from Greek mythology (Apollo) and a modern blogger with insecurities about her body known as The Travel Chick. The author's style of humor reminds me slightly of Eve Langlais, another romance author who has regularly combined fantasy, humor, bits of mythology, and full-figured heroines, and I especially enjoyed the unique blending of contemporary culture and characters from Gree ...more
