Overview

There’s more going on at famed Helios Resort in Mexico than meets the eye and Patience O’Conner is going to figure out what, even if it kills her . . . which is exactly what Death has planned. Patience O’Conner is a travel blogger who lives for her work. Her dedication to her readers brings her to the famed Helios Resort in Mexico, a locale that stuns her with its beauty but at which she suffers from some very strange accidents. Luckily, hunky resort bartender Apollo Delos is always there in the nick of time, a malcontent guardian angel. Apollo stuns Patience again and again with his life-saving abilities, to say nothing of his smoldering looks and apparent desire to keep her alive. Before long, Patience wonders if there is more to the sexy bartender than mixed cocktails and insane first-aid skills. Something strange is happening at Helios and Apollo doesn’t want to talk about it. Can Patience open herself up to this enigmatic man, even though she is terrified to be vulnerable again? And can Apollo recover from an eternity of hurt and learn to trust once more? They must both decide before Death comes calling.

    Book exchanged for an honest review:Apollo Dellos is the owner o

    Book exchanged for an honest review:Apollo Dellos is the owner of Helios, a swanky resort in the heart of Mexican Riviera, happens to also be the Greek god Apollo. He's also been gifted with seeing visions of the future but has to be touching the person to know if it's either he or she from said vision. Lately Apollo's visions have been very dark and disturbing. Apollo is also worried about Patience O'Connor a travel blogger with exacting demands. Patience O'Connor is traveling with her two best friends Doris and Angie but doesn't want to drop her guard while she's at Helios. Patience keeps seeing beach perfect bartender everywhere she goes. Yet she can't imagine not seeing him either. Apollo and Patience are both wary of being hurt and not accepted for who they are. What does this dark vision mean? Can both Apollo and Patience move forward? Will Apollo believe in love again? Your answers await you in Sunburn.

    This is the third installment in Greek Gods Series. Personally this is my favorite of the series so far. The way both Apollo and Patience have been hurt in the past and carry on to fight another day rings true to the core of my being. As alpha males go Apollo is in a class all his own if that's possible. I'm fan of mythology to which I love the blend Ms. Leo creates for her story. I will definitely be on the look out for the next book.

    Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


    This was a well written, enjoyable read that had good flow in addition to being light and witty. I really enjoyed the tone of our hero and heroine.

    Our heroine, Patience, is a real woman. She has self-image issues and relationship worries that I think many of us readers can relate to. She is also not a size 0. I loved her! Apollo is hilarious, especially his curse words. I loved how he stayed in character. My one complaint was about Patience's friends. I didn't like how they waffled and didn't support her decisions.

    The setting of the book made me totally jealous as I watched the snow drift to the ground. The decadent and overindulgent feeling of vacationing in Mexico was definitely conveyed. I thought perhaps that things wrapped up a little quickly -
    Apollo was handed the answer to his major dilemma so that cheapened it a little in my eyes.

    Overall, I did really like this book

    This book was about Patience, a travel blogger, who visits a resort in Mexico as part of her job. While there she meets the owner Apollo with whom she has an immediate attraction. The catch? He's not just named Apollo, he is THE Apollo, as in Greek god Apollo.

    I don't want to put spoilers in this review so I won't touch on the rest of the plot. I thought this was a fun read and I enjoyed it a lot. The characters were likable, it was a creative storyline, & had some pretty hot scenes. I liked the fact that it incorporated Greek mythology and did not have the usual vampires, shifter, etc. It was a refreshing change. I did not realize when I started it that it was the third book in a series but that did not matter at alone. This book was a fine stand alone & there were only brief mentions of past characters. I will definately check out the other books by this author.
