Book Description:

Sophie Bloom’s junior year has been a bit of a train wreck. After the world’s greatest kiss re-awakened Sophie’s true identity as Persephone (Goddess of Spring and Savior of Humanity), she fought her dragon-lady guidance counselor to the death, navigated mean girl Bethany’s bitchy troublemaking, and dealt with the betrayal of her backstabbing ex, Kai (sexy Prince of Darkness). You’d think a girl could catch a break.

Yeah, right.

With Zeus stepping things up, it’s vital that Sophie retrieve Persephone’s memories and discover the location of the ritual to stop Zeus and Hades. So when Aphrodite strikes a deal that can unlock Sophie’s pre-mortal past, what choice does the teen goddess have but to accept?

The mission: stop media mogul Hermes from turning Bethany into a global mega-celebrity. The catch? Aphrodite partners Sophie and Kai to work together … and treat this suicide mission as a date. Which could work out for Sophie’s plan to force Kai to admit his feelings for her–if she doesn’t kill him first.

Add to that the fact that BFF Theo’s love life and other BFF Hannah’s actual life are in Sophie’s hands, and suddenly being a teenager—even a godlike one—seems a bit like … well, hell. Whatever happened to dinner and a movie?

The YA romantic comedy/Greek mythology fireworks continue to fly inMy Date From Hell. Love meets comedy with a whole lot of sass in book two of this teen fantasy romance series. Breaking up is easy; dating is deadly.

My Take:

Wow! Hot damn. I have the super huge addiction to all things Greek mythology. I named my cats Nyx… So suffice to say, when I was approached with the opportunity to read and review this book, I may or may not have jumped on and down in my computer chair.

The story was epic and the characters beautifully crafted. But truly mare than the story & its memorable characters, I fell in love with the writing style. It was seamless and poetic. I was fully enthralled from page one, so much so that I may or may not have read both books back to back at night with no care in the word sleep.

I have no complaints with the story other than, I want book 3 right now. Patience is definitely not one of my strong points and those cliff hanger endings can really drive a girl mad.

I didn’t even mind the divergence from real Greek mythology much. It helped to mold the story and make it unique plus I kinda sorta maybe love Kai aka Kryllios <3.

5 Quills

Read it! But be warned you have a too hot to handle broody God or the Underworld, a sassy Goddess turned Human, Titans and nerdy humans. If that’s not enough, you’ve also got a shit ton of twists & turns and some pretty stellar cliff hangers.

Book 3 where are you?!? I even had to read book 2.5 ‘A Date of Godlike Proportions’ to get my fix…. But it didn’t work!

Don’t miss My Life From Hell, releasing March 20, 2014. Which is also spring equinox and the date of  Sophie's final showdown with Zeus and Hades in the book.
