I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Katee Robert is a New York Times and the USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance and romantic suspense. Entertainment Weekly calls her writing “unspeakably hot.” Her books have sold over a million copies. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, children, a cat who thinks he’s a dog, and two Great Danes who think they’re lapdogs.

Blurb: In the ultra-modern city of Olympus, there’s always a price to pay. Psyche Dimitriou knew she’d have to face Aphrodite’s jealous rage eventually, but she never expected her literal heart to be at stake…or for Aphrodite’s gorgeous son to be the one ordered to strike the killing blow.
Eros has no problem shedding blood. Raised to be his mother’s knife in the dark, he’s been conditioned to accept that he’s more monster than man. But when it comes time to take out his latest target…he can’t do it. Confused by his reaction to Psyche’s unexpected kindness, he does the only thing he can think of to keep her safe: he binds her to him, body and soul.
Psyche didn’t expect to find herself married to the glittering city’s most dangerous killer, but something about Eros wakens a fire inside her she’s never felt before. As lines blur and loyalties shift, Psyche realizes Eros might take her heart after all…and she’s not sure she can survive the loss.

“I can’t outrun myself.”

Psyche has a lot to live for. She’s a successful influencer, and her mother has elevated their position even further. Eros is the resident bash boy- doing his mother’s dirty work. When Psyche shows Eros kindness, an Olympus size change is about to occur… and no one of ready.

This was my first Katee Robert novel, but I enjoyed this novel a lot! It is such a fun, modern twist in Greek mythology. I enjoyed reading this steamy take on a classic.

I loved Psyche so much. She was so bold. Intelligent and sassy. She isn’t afraid to do what needs to be done, and she isn’t afraid to stand up for herself.

Eros was a classic anti-hero. I loved his transformation. And I loved how charismatic he was. He was incredibly sexy and smooth. He was such a vivid character.

This book was excellent. I loved the plot, the pacing, and the arc of the storyline. I want to read the entire series now- steamy, funny, sassy, sweet, and filled with drama. This was a beautifully done modern telling of a classic story we all have heard at least once.

Cleverly done and perfectly executed, this was a fantastic read. I loved the mix of politics, drama, sabotage, and ultimately love.
