One minute I'm looking after an injured gelding, the next I'm tied to a luxurious bed. I never believed in fairy tales, never gave a second thought to myths. Now that I've been kidnapped by a man with golden eyes and a body that makes my mouth water, I'm not sure what I believe in anymore. . . But I know what I want.

What the hell did I just read? Nope. Nope. Nope. Not for me!
Sophia Triad
In Greek mythology, the 12 Olympian Gods never hesitated sleeping with insignificant mortals. Sometimes in the process, children were produced and these children were half Gods, demigods.

Zeus especially used to be extra bad. A player. Taking advantage of his powers and his position as the boss of all Gods, he loved seducing young virgins. Usually he took different forms for the seduction and he definitely preferred taking the form of an animal.
So, you can read stories about him who seduces a gi

Tara is a dedicated veterinarian in a small town, but while she is passionate about her career, her love life is non-existent. By that I mean, she is a virgin! It isn’t that she hasn’t had any offers, but she seems to waiting for “the one.” Dean is a sexy and charming rancher and can we just say, “Hello cowboy,” but while he keeps trying to date Tara, she remains a distant and focused on something else.

It isn’t until one night when a mysterious man appears to Tara and all bets are off

This was a really short sexy read. I thought it was hot, hot.....till the epilogue and it felt as totally unfinished. It wasn't even that it was open to a book two, it just felt to unfinished. But even saying that I enjoyed.

Not for me. This novella was just annoying, and left more Questions than answers.

Divine temptation?! What a story here. The plot was riddiculous and not to mention bizzare. Taking the old plot of Zeus' conquest but with a little bit twist near the end. Loved the ending and not wanting any other way to end it!

Fun, short and hawt.
And without shower between two sex partners (and without condom, even if one of the two was a god) yuck...

Well it had the regular total possessive and hotness you would expect from celia aarons books. BUT i did not like it for one reason. WARNING! SPOILER!** That reason being that when Tara was taken from earth to be with the god Zeus you think oh ok this is great they will fall in love and what not. No. They did the hanky panky and then she got sent home because Zeus crazy wife had interrupted them. So she ends up trying to move on and goes out with Dean the cute cowboy and then she
Best way to describe this book in five words: Oh. God. That. Was. Boring. I have never been so bored in my life reading a story that is supposed to be erotic. It was inching along in the beginning and then the scene just suddenly changes. There wasn't a good transition or elaboration to that. The scene just went from one to another.

As for the synopsis, it totally gave everything away. You don't even need to read the book to know that she was treating an animal, then gets transported to a god, ti

Needed more substance.

This book could have been really good but it just didn't feel finished or thought out all the way. Like was Dean the human version of Zeus or just a man. I was all confused well except for the son that was obvious. Anyway you should rewrite this story and republish it. It could be really, really good

*I received an an ARC in exchange for an honest review*
Zeus awakens the passion in Tara but can she leave the mortal world behind, especially when there is a man like Dean waiting for her? Another great erotic romance by Celia Aaron. Zeus is a quick read that will leave you weak in the knees. I loved it.

Actually, I had to read this book twice not because I loved it but I was totally confused. I wasn't sure whether Dean was a reincarnation of Zeus or something like that. After the second read, I was like....what was that all about?

Not worth the time

This is a horrible story. There was rape and the author tried clamouring it. Rape is never okay. Don't waste your money.
