Zeus is the cruelest man in the city. And he’s the only one who can save me.

If I don’t sell my body at one of his infamous parties, I’ll be forced into a nightmarish arranged marriage.

But he won’t accept any offers. Not until he’s had me for himself.

I thought I chose the right man to help me escape.

I was wrong.

Richer Than God is the first book in a dark contemporary trilogy featuring the devilishly delicious and demanding Zeus and his beautiful conquest Brigit. Brigit is a young woman on the run. In hopes of escaping an arranged marriage to her uncle (let that sink in for just one moment), she will do whatever it takes to escape her father and the cage in which he has put her in. She decides to find solace in the prestigious whorehouse Olympus owned b

Note: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Oh my god this series...I never saw this coming, honest to god.

When I first heard of it, I thought it wasn't going to be special, just something I'd forget soon.

But I loved the plot, I loved being in Zeus and Brigit's world, and seeing how they dealt with their own simmering tension and fighting back their own pasts.

I loved the steam, the romance, the plot itself, the developed characters because it's been a long time since I have been

So I'll admit my first attraction to this book was the cover. I even talked about it to a friend of mine and we both agreed, it really was perfect. I knew Amelia Wilde was talented and had a serious following so I decided to jump to the dark side.

Oh, and this side was dark.
The blurb lays it out, and if you have been reading the author, then you might be familiar with some of the characters and past storylines referred to in this
Amelia Wilde where have you been all my life?? She came through with this book. It is dark, scary, suspenseful. Did I say wickedly sexy?? Zesus the meanest MF on the planet comes crashing into Brigit a virgin on the run from sick arranged marriage.

The chemistry was so intense. Amelia successfully had me mesmerized. I thought he wanted her, I thought his lust and need for Brigit would make him show mercy and kindness.

I hate to give away endings. But let's just say it ends abruptly with lots of

So, uummm…..yeah. Totally not expecting this story….AT ALL! But man, was it good!

Richer Than God is a dark, contemporary, romantic suspense that’s one-part twisted eroticism, and one-part emotional romance. Okay, so maybe it leans more toward the twisted aspects than the swoony, heartfelt elements in the story. But regardless, this book is filthy-HOT!

Zeus is the owner of Olympus, an exclusive and opulent whorehouse, and is a rich, self-serving, and controlling alpha male. God love him, he contro

It was okay. That's what my 2 stars rating mean.

With that said, I don't get these idiots' motivations at all.

„I’m going to keep her.”

Sometimes you come across a book that with its darkness, depravity and undeniable eroticism makes you devour it in the blink of an eye. Richer Than God is one of those books. My gahhh, I swallowed this story faster than a thirsty person swallows water. Brigit and Zeus’ story sucked me in completely, I wasn’t able to tear myself away from it, and each page made me shocked, stunned and thrilled.

I love that Brigit has taken a great risk to control her own destiny, even t

As a lover of Greek mythology, it's really awesome to read our favourite gods in the modern words..and the cherry on top is that...they work as Antiheroes...

Zeus was the good god...the wise one..But the author has given him such a dark twist that maybe...I have changed my fav anti-hero

This book was too amazing to put into words. Zeus owns an exclusive Gentlemens brothel. Brigit, is fleeing from an arranged marriage to her Uncle and ends up at the Zeus’s club. I don’t know what could be worse being set up an arranged marriage or ending up at in the hands of a ruthless, cruel, gorgeous mans hands? This book is dark, steamy and really good. There is a cliffhanger so be aware but this book is so good and I love Amelia’s books I don’t care it just makes me look forward to what wil ...more

Oh my goodness, what a story, what a mixed up. First it was Hades and Persephone and now we read about Zeus and Brigit. This story doesn’t disappoint either.
My heart goes out to Brigit, escaping one hell for another, or is it!!! I thought Zeus would be different...well he is but in another way. Brigit is so naive, so trusting and I wanted to hug and protect her. Zeus is so powerful,demanding and at ti

Get ready for a new obsession, a new book boyfriend that will have you encounter adrenaline spikes all over your body. It’s an erotic drama filled with romance.

I seriously couldn’t put this book down. From the very beginning, Amelia had me hooked with suspense. Meeting Zeus the alpha hero in this story commanded my attention as his powerful presence entered the pages.

Sweet Holiest of titfires...

This book was hotter than a Las Vegas sidewalk in August. I have been wanting this book since I first finished Hades. I have to say, I love mythology, but this modern twist on Mythology is so much better than the stuff that is taught in school. Had this been what was taught, I would have changed my major. Even knowing that Zeus was a manwhore and not very redeemable in tales of Lore had nothing on Zeus in this book. He is all of that and more.

OMG, that cliffie!! Delicious dark steamy suspense!!

I didn't want to give into the lure of the golden god of a brother, Zeus. After all, he was a villain, right?

Amelia gives such good anti-hero!

Sure, Zeus rules over a brothel called Olympus. He sells women. He takes what he wants. He enjoys the pain he inflicts. He was his father's golden boy. Even if he was the second choice to Hades.


Maybe he's not as callous or sadistic as he seems. After all, the women have a right to accept or deny. E

Brigit's trying to buy her escape. I'll only accept her as payment.

In a life like mine, there is only danger dressed up in money and power. I'm a monster in expensive suits and an opulent home. Brigit is an angel with only the clothes on her back.

She's on the run from a nightmarish arranged marriage, and I'm her only hope in the city. If she works my business she'll be able to buy herself a new life.

But the moment she steps into my life is the moment she's trapped forever.

RICHER THAN GOD by Amelia Wilde is the First book in a Trilogy. This starts the story of Zeus and Brigit. If you have read the King of Shadows then you will know some of the harden person Zeus is, which was a result of his up bring by his father. Zeus is a hard to like hero due to that up bringing that has made him unfeeling and dark. Zeus runs the very exclusive brothel called Olympus. This is where money is earned and privilege has its price. This is also where our young innocent naïve Brigit ...more

Wow! OMG!! OK. My mind has been blown and I am almost at a total loss for words. Zeus and Brigit's trilogy gets off to one hot, twisted, intense and dark start. It's gripping, it is raw, it is enticing and it is consuming. This book had me up reading past my bedtime, scraping my jaw off the floor and in desperately need of an ice cold beverage. Even a full day after I finished my mind still doesn't seem to fully wrap my head around everything that happened and I have no idea where this story is ...more

I did not expect to like Zeus. But I liked Brigit and was surprised by how much I started to like Zeus. He’s just a total alphahole that you somehow can’t help but fall in love with.

Brigit truly has no idea what she signs up for when she shows up on Zeus’ doorstep. All she wants is the ability to call the shots in her life, instead of her father and uncle calling them for her.

Zeus doesn’t have a clue what’s about to happen when he lets Brigit into his ‘house.’ He is the master of his domain and

Zeus is definitely the closed off alpha you want to hate but given his upbringing and his broken ways leaves you swooning. Bridget is trying to escape her dad and uncle and ends up at Zeus's brothel searching for a job. While there were many times I wanted to yell at Zeus for his ways there was something about him that wormed its way into my heart. This book takes you on a hot and steamy ride but what an enjoyable ride it is and then I am left here longing for what is next! ...more

This is a modern view of the Greek myth of Zeus. Its on the dark side so be prepared. It is about a girl, Brigit, who is on the run from her father. She makes it to Zeus' establishment and doesn't really know what to expect. What she gets is definitely not pleasant. I can't wait for next in the series. I voluntarily received an ARC copy of this book and I have left my honest review. ...more

Heroine is too stupid to live imo.

Sex scenes are mediocre.

Ends on a cliffhanger.

You're not missing out on anything if you don't read this story.
