What do the Greek gods do when they're bored?  Because they're always bored so humans are the perfect players in their games.

Aphrodite owns love; she hasn't lost a competition on her turf in over three millennia.  Apollo is on a mission to win.  He's counting on it to finally get the one woman he's never been able to have.  The two gods will choose their human players, and if Aphrodite can't get them together before the clock runs out Apollo will get his way.  And Aphrodite couldn't have that.

Lex and Dean are perfect for each other, they just don't know it yet.  Dean is a perpetual bachelor, and a brooding, beautiful rock star.  Lex is always with a man, but she'll never fully give herself up.  Aphrodite has her work cut out for her, but if she can't make it work, no one can.

The gods have their own drama.  Apollo killed Aphrodite's mortal love - they've got beef that's been dragging on for thousands of years.  Ares, the douche bag, is forever trying to pick a fight, and trying to get Aphrodite into bed.  And Persephone, Aphrodite's best friend, is the one person who Aphrodite shares everything with.

Follow the gods as they fight, laugh, cry, lose love, gain power, and make a mess with humans.

This book is a must read for fans of romance with some humor mixed in.  It gets off to a perfect start - before it even starts.  You must read the star chart at the beginning - it was fantastic (you'll know what I mean once you do it).  

The Greek gods and goddesses have passed the thousands of years by holding competitions where the loser owes the winner a favor.  It's Aphrodite's turn, and she has never been defeated - and she's not about to let go of her winning streak yet.  However, she will have her work cut out for her with Dean and Lex.  The couple that's perfectly imperfect for each other.  The tricks that Aphrodite and Apollo utilize to try and win the competition make Lex and Dean's life quite interesting for the duration.

The book is fast paced and covers the not only the stories of Lex/Dean and Apollo/Aphrodite, but also gives a lot of backstory that only make everything even more juicy and full of drama.  It's like a frat house meets a sorority and they're all bored with super powers!  How much more fun could it get!
