Neon Gods
Neon Gods | Katee Robert
Society darling Persephone Dimitriou wants nothing to do with her mother's ambitions. She's biding her time until she's able to leave the ultra-modern city of Olympus and start her doctorate degree. The one thing she never planned on? Her mother ambushing her with an engagement to Zeusa man with more than a few dead wives in his past. Persephone will do anything to escape that fate...even flee the sparkling upper city and make a devil's bargain with a man she once believed was a myth. Hades has spent his life in the shadows, and he has no intention of stepping into the light. Not even for the woman who flees into his territory as if the very hounds of hell are on her heels. But when he finds that Persephone can offer a little slice of the revenge he's spent his entire life craving? It's all the excuse he needs to agree to help herfor a price. She'll be his for the summer, and then he'll see her safely out of Olympus and away from her mother and Zeus. Hades and Persephone's deal might seem simple enough, but they both quickly realize it's anything but. With every breathless night spent with Hades, Persephone wonders at her ability to leave him behind. And Hades? Now that he has a taste for Persephone, he's willing to go to war with Olympus itself to keep her...

#swoonathonswap wishlist! On the survey I promised to post a list of romance titles on my wishlist so to anyone stalking my feed here you go. It was hard to narrow this down because there are so many awesome romance novels out there I haven‘t read yet. Anything off my Litsy TBR or Goodreads wishlist shelves would also be wonderful. (Did I mention I want to read ALL the books??) 😆❤️

Would anyone else like to post their #romancewishlist ?

kimmypete1 I‘ve read quite a few of these, all great choices. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I also like the idea of posting a wishlist. (edited) 2w

Great book. I wouldn't say it's exactly a retelling of the myth but there are some fun references to Greek myths within the book. The relationship between Hades and Persephone develops very quickly but the book does still make you buy into it. I could done with more plot less smut but it was still a good read.

I waited to read this because I knew it would be amazing and I needed to save it for when I really needed it. This week was it, I lost my pup, she was 15 and it was time, but I‘m still a mess. This book helped so much.

The steamy moments were hot as all get out. The mythology mixed with contemporary was fantastic. I adored Hades and Persephone and the nods to the actual myths had me flashing back to my elementary school projects.

I like Greek Mythology. I like retellings. I even like smut. This book was just not the one for me. I think the biggest reason I finished it was because it's easy consumption, I was just flying through the pages so I didn't DNF it. I think the level of spice in this one is probably really perfect for others that can overlook an OK story/writing.

⭐⭐⭐

Catching up on reviews (the story of my life) for #LittensDressedInBlood.

I wanted so much to like this book. I love Greek mythology reimagined, but this felt like a hot mess. It was more mafia romance than anything else, and I did not feel the love. Also, the male narrator sounded way too old and not at all sexy, so that was kind of a problem. Disappointed, because Bk 2 is Eros/Psyche and that's my favorite myth, but I think I'll pass.

DGRachel On the one hand, I‘m sorry you were disappointed by a book you were looking forward to. On the other, I‘m so glad I‘m not the only one who didn‘t love it. It did make me want to find more (and hopefully better) H&P retellings, but this is the one people keep recommending 😭😭 4mo

Excellent retelling on the Hades and Persephone myth. It‘s highly smutty, but if you enjoy mythology and hot romance this is an excellent read.

Here's another Hades and Persephone retelling. They are everywhere these days. Well in this version they decide to stick it to Zeus by fake dating in public...and in public includes Hades' sex club. This felt very mafia romancey...very beauty and the beasty...but it was fun and I enjoy seeing people upend the classics.

Neon Gods definitely has a high heat factor, and now I want all the Hades and Persephone retellings. However, something about Robert‘s writing didn‘t click for me. I‘m not sure what was off about it - maybe the first person present as I tend to struggle with that, especially in contemporary romance, but it may just be my mood. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Do I have four book actively in progress? Yes.

Did I just take a “what romance novel should you read next” quiz because I am dying waiting for my preorder of Sarah MacLean‘s Bombshell to arrive? Yes.

Am I starting the book recommended by that quiz instead of reading the other books I‘ve already started. Also, yes.

Is anyone surprised? No. 🤣🤣

I quite fancy this retelling of Hades and Persephone‘s story. Sexy and fun. Fast paced and I enjoyed the various characters she developed for the other gods and goddesses introduced.

5/5 for this one! I do love a good Hades Persephone retelling. This one did not disappoint! It was so spicy! Hades was the dark but sweet brooding man that Persephone wanted to know more about. Persephone was the sassy vibrant woman that Hades wanted to protect. I loved every minute! I highly recommend this!

Did you know Spotify has audiobooks? I found neon gods last night and I‘m stoked to see they have audiobooks. They have some of everything. I do have a premium account, so not 100% if you can listen with a free account or not.

A sizzling, fresh take on the tale of Hades and Persephone. I ate this up. I enjoyed how each held nothing back from the other including the happy moments as well as the insecurities. This wasn't at all what I expected in the very best way. I am a sucker for some mythology and this felt very modern.

I absolutely LOVED this retelling of Hades and Persephone. It was the perfect mix of compelling story, insatiable romance, and believable interaction between the characters. I‘m usually not a huge fan of explicit romance books, but they way their interactions were written made them feel natural and believable rather than forced and contrived, which made it so much more enjoyable. Will most def be reading Katee Roberts‘ other work!!

It‘s another so so retelling of the Hades & Persephone myth. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I found it all to be rather flat. #YMMV. Is it tacky to suggest a better retelling in a review?

BrittanyReads Not at all! I love when people recommend a similar/better book! 7mo
Loreen @BrittanyReads I guess I should edit and add the book to this post. 😬 7mo

This was a very hot and fresh take on Greek Gods. This is the beginning of new erotic romance series featuring Hades & Persephone. Very well done and I look forward to continuing the series. A free space read for my #bookspinbingo too!

3 books I'm hoping to finish before the end of May! I love starting a new month with a fresh currently reading stack 📚 So far, I'm enjoying all 3, although it's weird for me to be reading 3 romance books at once; usually I like to be reading from multiple genres.

Day two and book two of my vacation. I'm a natural night owl, so when I do not have to work I tend to stay up late and sleep in. I finished yesterday's book at 4am! I'm going to try to not stay up quite as late reading this one.🤞

This one is a contemporary retelling of the Persephone and Hades myth. #arc #romantsy

Bianca I'm a natural night owl, too, so I do the same thing! 12mo
