This was a fast-paced, enemies to lovers romance with a fabulous setting and high stakes. I loved the interactions between the unlikely couple and rooted for their satisfying resolution. The easy-to-read romance had the perfect balance of humor, angst, and steam. Highly recommended!

This is the 1st book I've read written by Lucy Eden; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Review also available at The Smut Report.

Heat Factor: It’ll get your heart racing…then swelling with sweet, sweet romance…then racing again. Just pretty much that, over and over again.

Character Chemistry: They’re really, truly adorable.

Plot: CEO travels to island paradise to meet his idol AND swing the deal of a lifetime and ends up pissing off said idol, biffing the whole deal, and falling head over heels in love instead. Challenged trust! Heart wrenching devotion! Feelings! Feelings!!

I will always love Lucy's covers. They are consistently beautiful and I feel all types of feels at being visually represented in Romancelandia.

I like this one A LOT. (Although my favorite so far is Everything's Better With Kimberly. If you haven't read it go buy it NOW)

There are so many emotional twists and turns between Alex and Callie. It's a sure fire roller coaster created to make you feel as the characters feel. So... if you're feeling slightly vulnerable you might want to hold off until y

Cherishing the Goddess by Lucy Eden is a charming, seductive, and fabulous romance read for the summer.

Alexander (Alex) Wolfe is handsome, successful and a billionaire CEO looking for his next win. When an opportunity arises for the biggest acquisition of his career, he travels to Barbados to go head-to-head with a corporate raider and close the deal in person. He’s absolutely prepared for everything… or so he thought.

Calypso (Callie) Sterling is beautiful, alluring and intelligent. She’s a forc

This is more of a 3.5 star read because I'm not a fan of insta-love, and this book relies heavily on that trope.

“Does your brain have an off switch or is everything open for negotiation?”
“I could ask you the same question,” I replied causing the corners of her full, soft lips to quirk into a small smile.


I loved Callie. She's strong, smart, resourceful and devoted to her family. I had a harder time with Alex. His entire life revolves around work, and then as soon as he meets Callie, he drops ever

Smart, steamy, and emotional

Sometimes you spend so much time and effort pursuing something that you neglect to think about whether it’s what you really want. As it happens, this is the case for both Alexander Wolfe, a successful, if not overworked CEO pursuing his next big acquisition, and Calypso Sterling, a fiery and intelligent young woman on the cusp of, well, pretty much whatever she wants to do. But when you meet someone who challenges you, who forces you to really think about your life, i

This is a fairly NEW to me author & books! The blurb on this is what caught my eye right away!! Happy to have gotten an ARC, because this story was something different.

Smooth talking billionaire CEO Alexander Wolfe has a strange encounter during a rather unfortunate surrounding. When he sees her he is surrounded by his little buddy and her mother who is married, but definitely interested. When the opportunity presents itself for them two to actually meet, he know Calypso Sterling

Lucy Eden.. Queen of steam and one of my favorite new writers. I really like her writing style. She has a way of telling a story and drawing you in

Her latest release is Cherishing the Goddess. It was originally written as a novella and has now been rewritten into a full length novel.
Calypso and Alexander were amazing together. Their journey wasn’t easy or perfect, but their chemistry and love for one another was undeniable

The writing was excellent, the plot engaging, and the characters were un

She is a feisty independent young woman determined to make it. When Alexander comes to the island he is only interested in sealing the big deal. That is until he meets Callie. They have so much in common and yet there are stumbling blocks that can deter what could become a really good relationship. Do they have what it takes to put everything on the line and make it work? I voluntarily agreed to receive an ARC of this book for an honest review.
The Mysterious Reader
To say that Cherishing the Goddess is a superb steamy blast of fun would be to fairly describe it. This standalone workplace romance is a perfect enemies to lovers tale. I loved Calypso and Alexander story. But for the fact that I’m literally dictating this review to my husband from my hospital bed I could go on and on with praises. The book definitely deserves it. Since I can’t do that I will simply note that the book is most definitely one to read, and it is easy to highly recommend.

Calypso and Alexander help Lucy Eden cast a spell. There are moments when, Cherishing the Goddess seems like an otherworldly experiment. The heart wants to believe what the mind refuses to behold. Then there are other times when the mind leaps ahead of the heart and gives it's own spin to the drama that is unfolding. Eden proves herself to be a masterful storyteller.

Romance lovers unite! This book is so freaking adorable and gave me all the feels. Just in time for Valentine's Day too. As some of you know, I'm kind of a disaster in my real love life so I'm always in search of book boyfriends! Alexander Wolfe did not disappoint. Holy hotness, Batman! Our female main character, Calypso (Callie), is just freaking awesome and she deserved someone sweet like Alex. Yes, Alex turns out to be so sweet and charming, although he's this rich CEO who focuses on work all ...more

I found this to be a superb storyline that grabs you right from the start keeping you engrossed and on edge throughout the whole book!
The chemistry, sweetness, and twists in plot kept things interesting.
The story flowed smoothly. I felt this story was the perfect length, also. Some books are a little too wordy when less will do. This one was perfect in that all the loose ends were bowed, yet it did not feel rushed nor did it leave me scratching my head.

I received a free ARC of this novel via Hidden Gems in exchange for a honest review. That being said, my opinion is my own.

This is the first time that I read anything by this author. I will definitely be reading more by her in the future. Her characters have nice depth and the interactions in this story is great. It evoked a lot of emotional reactions from me, which isn't the norm. Great book all around

Lucy Eden is the nom de plume of an romance obsessed author who writes the kind of romance she loves to read. She’s a sucker for alphas with a soft gooey center, over the top romantic gestures, strong & smart MCs, humor, love at first sight (or pretty damn close), happily ever afters & of course, steamy love scenes.

When Lucy isn’t writing, she’s busy reading—or listening to—every book she can get
