Erica Warren, a modern day pagan, gets twitchy when Aphrodite asks her to do something but won’t tell her what it is. Then she meets Cal Vasco, a gorgeous Dom who whispers promises of pleasure and pain guaranteed to seduce a masochist like Erica. If he’s what Aphrodite has in mind, she’s happy to play along.
But Cal isn’t what he seems. The son of an ancient war god, he and his brothers pissed off Aphrodite thousands of years ago, and she’s been teaching them a lesson ever since. A night of passion between Cal and Erica ends with a curse from the Goddess: they are now madly in love whether they like it or not.
As a mercenary, Cal hates the Goddess for hanging the albatross of love around his neck. He doesn’t want to feel tenderness and need for Erica, especially when she insists on getting involved in the dangers of his profession. But Erica is determined to be more than a puppy who follows him around.
This is a strange book for me to review. I was completely caught off guard with the story and how it all progressed. I am a fan of mythology and so I did enjoy that part of the story. This is also the first book by Foster that I have read, so it was a great experience as well.
It was a bit confusing for me personally at times. There was so much going on throughout the story that I did find myself having to re-read several spots to fully grasp what was happening. The characters were all interesting, and I did enjoy getting into their minds and following along with their journeys. The sex scenes were very well done, and I would say that if you like BDSM in your stories, then you should check this one out.
Overall, while I did enjoy the story, I didn’t love it. I do hope that there are more books in the series because I hope that they will clear up the questions that I still have from this one.
