Abby left Olympus behind for the only thing she ever wanted: freedom. Things are going great until one colossal misstep lands her right back into Olympus politics and under the steely-eyed glare of Zeus. To make up for it, Zeus demands she make a love match between two people of his choice.

Easy peasy for the Goddess of Love, right?

Wrong.

Abby stumbles

Overview

Abby left Olympus behind for the only thing she ever wanted: freedom. Things are going great until one colossal misstep lands her right back into Olympus politics and under the steely-eyed glare of Zeus. To make up for it, Zeus demands she make a love match between two people of his choice.

Easy peasy for the Goddess of Love, right?

Wrong.

Abby stumbles into an ex-lover, a dead demi-god, and the realization that a crucial relic has been stolen right out from underneath Zeus' nose. Between the gods breathing down her neck and fighting an attraction between two woefully wrong men, Abby will have to keep her wits about her so she can solve this mess and get back to her comfortable life and expensive cappuccino machine.

Unfortunately for Abby, things are never easy when the gods get involved.

This is a great book; this is the first book in The Goddess Chronicles series by S.E. Babin. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

This story was very cute and entertaining. I personally love mythology of any kind so this was right up my alley. In this story Aphrodite did a no-no and Zeus’s way of punishing her is to have her bring two people together, make a love match. This doesn’t seem right to her cause this is what she does. Knowing Zeus like she does, she knows he must be up to something else. He gives her 2 weeks and if she doesn’t complete the task she will be sent to Hades where her ex-husband is for eternity. There is definitely more to this than he is telling her. So her best friend Artie(Goddess of the Hunt) and Abby(Aphrodite) head to this small town where Zeus tell her the two people are. Things get a little out of control when they get there. They run into Abby’s ex-boyfriend, Ares(God of War). He has some not so good news for her. Oh and she has 2 others on her special little team Keto and Hermes. Hermes and Abby have the beginnings of something that may lead to more if given time. They learn that the two people she is supposed to bring together are Orpheus and Eurydice. So now instead of bringing two people together she has to bring two demi-gods together. Things just keep getting better and better for Abby. The go to find Orpheus and when they do they run into Eris(Goddess of Chaos and discord). Now Abby is positive there is more at work here than what she is told. Of course the police come and Abby is immediately attracted to the handsome lawman who shows up at the scene. He is mortal and it would never work but she can’t help how she feels. On top of all this Abby’s powers haven’t exactly been working perfectly. So what is a girl to do? Stuck with feelings for two hot and sexy men, a dead line with Zeus and powers that don’t always do what she wants them to do. This story was great, very entertaining and funny. I love how she took the basics of mythology and then put her own twist on them. There were twists and turns, while you tried to figure out what exactly Zeus wasn’t telling them. Reading as the goddess of love was trying to figure out her own love life. She can make any two people come together but her love life is a mess. You see things from her perspective that maybe you hadn’t thought about before. Her struggle with feeling for two people at the same time, seeing different things she could love in both of them. Her trip to see the Fates was one of my favorite parts of the book for sure. I would definitely would read another book in this series if there ever was one.
