When the god of wine and ecstasy, Dionysus, callously dumps his latest conquest, the mortal Ariadne, the goddess Hera has had enough. She robs Dionysus of his memory to teach him a lesson in humility.
Ariadne is deeply hurt after Dionysus dismisses their night of passion as “just sex” and doesn’t want to see her anymore. When she finds him bloodied and beaten and suffering from amnesia, she quickly forms a plan to get back at him. As she pretends to be his fiancée, Ariadne makes Dionysus believe he loves her. But the longer the charade continues, the more difficult it becomes to really see who teaches whom a lesson.
And what if Dionysus gains his memory back? Will there be hell to pay for her deception, or can a mortal woman truly win a god’s love?
My Review -
A Scent of Greek is the 2nd book in the Out of Olympus series by Tina Folsom and once again Tina takes readers on a wonderful journey with sexy gods and their trials and tribulations with love.
This book was pure fun from beginning to end that had me going through a rollercoaster of emotions from laughing out loud many times (I received many stares from other commuters on the train ride to and from work), grabbing a tissue during the heartaches and trying to cool myself down during the hot, passionate scenes.
Dio being the God of wine and ecstasy has lived his long life going through a different woman every night and has never felt anything for the multitude of women he has been with until Ariadne. For the first time Dio has spent two weeks pursuing and charming the same woman all in the name of conquest as he tries to convince himself amidst the strong and foreign feelings he is developing for Ariadne. After a night of passion that burned into his soul like never before Dio walks away from Ariadne not because he wants to but feels he needs to. What results is the devastation of Ariadne heart and her resolution to teach Dio a lesson.
Ariadne is a bright, intelligent, successful and beautiful young woman who seems to have it all except for love. She believes love is not part of her destiny since she was literally left at the altar, broken-hearted, embarrassed and cheated out of her money by her fiance. With Dio being such a delicious temptation could she finally let her guard down and allow herself to trust another from breaking her heart?
After a night of intense passion Dio leaves Ariadne fearful of the strange feelings lurking deep within him and breaks her heart, but Ariadne confronts him and Dio acts cold and callous to drive her away. What Dio is unaware is a meddling goddess is set on teaching him a lesson which results in a series of events that Tina so vividly describes that the reader feel that they are right on the front lines of the action.
I absolutely love not only how Tina writes some of the best sex scenes out there, but her sense of humor. The things that she makes Dio go through and endure made me smile and laugh throughout the book. I highly recommend this book to not only paranormal romance lovers, but to all the women out there who ever had their hearts torn in two due to the actions of some heartless guy. Sometimes revenge can be so sweet and Tina knows how to dish it out for our enjoyment. So what are you wanting for? Go get this book!
