So good, never a dull moment.

I can honestly say that I did not expect to enjoy this book so much, it was so good and it had the perfect amount of plot plus smutty sex scenes. You would never hear me complain about sex scenes at all. I love them.
Whenever I see a Hades and Persephone retelling, it’s a automatic buy for me. I love reading how everyone takes the story between them and made it their own and I will say this one is will entertaining. It did not take long for Hades and Persephone to meet in the book and I liked that, perfect amount of waiting. As soon as we meet Hades, he’s just so intriguing and delicious.
Let’s talk about Persephone, I liked her very much but there’s something about her that I couldn’t pin down. I think it’s because she still trying to find herself since her mother had her locked away for her entire life that she still learning and we have to learn with her progress as well. But we can agree she’s not that good with journalism. Like she did nothing at that internship and she was barely there as well. I was surprised they did not let her go at all, that one little article must have been amazing or her boss has something up his sleeves..
I liked her their relationship progress throughout the book and how Persephone was starting to feel Underworld as home to her. My favourite “side characters” were Hecate, Hermes and Lexa. I loved them all whenever they were on scene and I want them as my BFF please.
I would definitely recommend if you like different takes on mythology retelling plus explicit sex scenes. I would also recommend listening to the audiobook because it captured the story so perfectly and the way the sex scenes were read was so good.
