Willa Knight: Dead? Alive? Damned to a state of eternal bad luck?

Willa and the Abcurse brothers are back, and more determined than ever to stick by each other. Unfortunately, Staviti has other plans, plans that threaten to change the natural order of the worlds—though nobody really understands why. His agenda may very well affect all beings on Minatsol, even those that t

Some sort of insane, ridiculous crack that makes you roll your eyes and love it at the same time?
(Shhh the reason I love this series so much and why I'm able to forgive all of its faults: I am a mega fucking pervert and this reverse harem thingie has messed up my head XDDD )

Book 3 left me happy ❤ my only big complaint ; (view spoiler)

Number 1 rule of being an Abcurse:

These just keep getting worse and worse.
I was so excited and stuck around for this book because Rome was my favorite.
But since the third book was basically all about him and Rome and Willa already hooked up, I'm out.

It's been almost 7 sun-cycles since the end of book three. Now that Willa had died and been reborn as something - though we don't know what she is but her energy is like a god - her soul-link with the Abcurses are now a soul-bond: it’s a rare connection that only gods can share. It’s rare because they don’t like to share their power or energy with anyone, they’re greedy that way. A soul-bond ties you to someone, giving you access to their energy and

Crazy, sexy, and pure awesomeness is all I have to say to describe Strength. It truly was worth the long wait, and now I'm crying on the inside since Pain isn't coming out until October😭!

Spoilers ahead, just letting you know😊:
~ The stakes are much higher in this book than the previous ones.
~ Mumma Abcurse is so much nicer than Abil!
~ Pica is crazy.
~ Cyrus and Emmy together?!

I was SO excited to read Strength, but I found it a bit of a let down. It was still immensely funny in parts (as per this series, that’s why I love it) but I’m so tired of Emmy not dying. I mean, she’s close to Willa, but she is part of her OLD life. Willa has the Abcurses now . Anyway, there was some good romance but I found some of the storyline boring because it’s getting very focused and intense, and I think of this series as a fun, easy and (seriously) funny read.

Actual rating: 2.75 And those .75 is because I'm way too emotionally involved to bear giving a CotG book the rating it deserves.

I read the previous 3 books in one sitting and by the end of Seduction I was feeling the burnout but at the same time I was elated. So while the bigger part of me wanted Strength to come out asap, there was a tiny part that felt relieved that I'll have some time away from Willa. She can be extremely annoying but also charming in her flightiness. One of the things I foun

The vibe book is similar to the previous ones: Willa being a shameless walking disaster, the brothers trying to keep her from accidentally hurting herself or killing someone, but it doesn't get old and I really enjoyed this book! 😃

A part of this book did not make much sense though... The Beta gods needing to teach the best Sols of their energies so they can either ascend as second-beta gods or be killed if they fail part does not serve any purposes besides putting the Abcurse, Willa,

Is this book a harbour , because I see lot of ships #Emma+Cyrus

Before starting this book I had quite the talk with myself. I have waited for what seems like eons for this book, I read the entire series over and over again like an addict wanting her fix. When this was released I immediately downloaded it, first mistake, I should have waited until September at least so I'd have just one month until Pain but I caved after three days which makes me pretty patient in the grand scheme of things.

Not sure what it is about this re-read but I am loving this series. I'm just kind of vibing with it all and enjoyed each and every page. It also doesn't hurt that I just love everything about all the people in the book either.

In it, you still have the same gang but it features lots of reunions. Whether it has Willa being yelled at or trying to not die. Either it way I was there for it all. I honestly really liked getting to know a bit more about the original gods - like Staviti. I still think h

5 freaking stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Willa-freaking-knight, you’re one of a kind.

I like how their sexy scenes were enough to leave you breathless unlike other sexy scenes that could get you pregnant. Lol

Emmy and Cyrus? Holy cow, didn’t see that one coming!
It was worth the wait. It was entertaining and hilarious.

OMG. I almost died laughing. I haven’t had that kind of laugh for ages. Here are my favorite parts:

I really liked this one. It brought back crazy Willa, but more mature and actually trying to think through things vs running head first into them. I also really liked the cohesiveness of the group; teamwork. I’m ready for book 5! Gimme!
Loved it!

Yep. I did. I feel that in this book, we really get a sense of how solid the relationship is with the 6 of them. I also feel more of a connection between Willa and Emmy this book, which I really appreciate. So much of Willa’s time is caught with her men, and having Emmy trail behind.

This book especially-the second half of it- digs a little deeper. Also, and this may be contrary to what others feel, I think Willa started to show more signs of acceptance of her role and (dare I say it?)

The last one was already a struggle to finish.... This one just couldn't...

Coen being my favorite, I was waiting for this book, but Willa kills it for me... The stupidity, the clumsiness taken to extreme, the inner monologues that don't go anywhere..grrrr

The way they patronize her, like a bratty toddler... Cute but dumb!

This wait is killing meeee
Book 1 was released February of last year, book 2 in May, book 3 in November.. a gap of 3 months and then 6.. it has been 5 months..still no news on the release date for this :/

I swear I'm not impatient :P

Guess I'll just keep reading this series over and over til this is out.

I love this series so freaking much!!

I don't think i can adore a female MC as much as I do Willa. To me she is the perfect MC. The plot is moving along so much more in this book and boy oh boy is the steamy scenes hot and perfect and well worth the wait.

It is rare to come across two authors who write so well together. Their individual books are just as good as their collaboration.

Buddy Read with RHR

Still one of my favourite RH and still hilarious and entertaining

Has the "shiny" novelty of Willa's antics worn off?

“Was she talking crazy? Tripping over things? Or did she have a completely normal conversation with you while keeping her clothes on the entire time?”

Slightly yes, but its still better than 90% of RH out there regardless. Its why I've rated the last two 4 stars instead of 5.

My only wish is she'd get a hang of these powers better - we are on book 4 now with only
Such a fun series that has totally got me hooked. Can't wait for the next book to be released.

Very funny, but at this point I feel everthing is recycled. What's the goal of these characters by the way? Keeping Willa alive (not necessarily clothed) isn't enough to sustain a plot.
More a guilty pleasure than anything else, the 4 stars are because it's very difficult to find books that make you laugh.

Yay! It’s back!! Four books later and I still don’t completely understand why I love this reverse harem series so much, but I do. So here we are. And I’m happy to report that my fourth foray into the Curse of the Gods was just a great as the previous books!

I will say that the plot felt a little stunted in this installment because more time is spent on Willa getting it on with the Abcurses. But it’s just so hard to care when th

"I have never seen six beings mesh so seamlessly before. A bond to surpass all others."

When it comes to Strength by Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington, all I can really think about is... what the hell even happened with this? This series hasn't really been standing strong with me to begin with, but at least with the last two books there seemed to be some semblance of improvement. Now, it feels like I've been transported all the way back to book one and all of

The installment carried the same vibes from the previous books in the series. But when I was reading the last part, I finally figured out what I felt was missing from the series.

Apart from Willa setting things on fire and Siret constantly clothing her, WHERE IS MY SUPERNATURAL ACTION, DAMMIT??! I love it when people exercise their powers freely. If you have it, you flaunt it. Not hide it away, especially if you are arrogant and powerful gods. I don't know if I am the only one who missed it while
