Book Review - Lover, Divine by A. Star

Lover, Divine by A. Star
(Mythos: Gods & Lovers #1)
Publication date: February 25th 2014
182 pages

Born into one of the wealthiest families in Ireland, Siobhan Law has status, privilege, and a secret: The Greek gods of Olympus and their kingdom in the clouds are real, and her family acts as one of their agents on Earth.

When the beautiful immortal celeste Liam Argyros shows up claiming to have come to Earth to deal in the affairs of the divine, Siobhan finds herself unable to resist his charms. New to the game of passion and seduction, she quickly ends up in over her head, sinking deeper with every attempt Liam makes to win her over.

But Liam’s divine mission is far more complex than she ever imagined and nothing is truly as it seems. Because Liam has a secret of his own: He is Apollo, Olympian god of the Sun, and his mission will never be complete until he has claimed Siobhan’s heart forever.

1/5 stars 

Siobhan Law belongs to a wealthy family in Ireland who are Influentials – they know that Gods, Demi Gods and immortal celestes are real and interact with them.
When the divinely handsome Liam Argyros, an immortal celeste, enters Siobhan’s life she is instantly drawn to him and Liam to her.
But Liam isn’t who he seems – he’s really Apollo, God of the Sun and he won’t stop until Siobhan is his.

I did not finish this book.
I just couldn’t connect to the characters or the storyline – the idea that Siobhan’s father would let a God take his daughter’s virginity willingly didn’t sit right with me. And I didn’t like the way Apollo was with Siobhan.

 This is how I felt through what I did read:

Unfortunately this wasn’t for me.
