Series: Forgotten Goddesses #2
Published by Sourcebooks Casablanca
Lucy, the Etruscan Goddess of the Moon and the goddess the Lucani worship. However, there are demons after her trying to steal her power to get their master out the Underworld, which makes is really bad timing when Brandon Stevenson, the ice hockey player she has been lusting sfter for two seasons steps into her bar looking for her.
I confess, I have been a bad bad girl! Normally I am really OCD about reading books in order, but I have been naughty as I haven’t read the first book yet: What a Goddess Wants, something I am going to have in immediately rectify as I really liked this book.
I liked the characters of Lucy and Brand in this book, I thought they made a sweet as well as flaming hot couple! The sex in this book was hot and frequent, Brand was a fricking love machine and had that dominant edge that gets me all hot and bothered, I would kinda hate Lucy if I didn’t like her so much! However, don’t be put off by my sex-being-frequent comment, as although it is, it doesn’t drown the book so you are reading 350 pages of being getting their end off. This book does have a story, one which continues from the previous book, and I will definitely be reading the next book in the series to see what will happen next.
Stephanie Julian has written a lot of books, all set in the same world, which is fantastic as I get the impression that some of the characters in this book were HEAs from her other series. But, this did make it a little confusing, I understood the world but I did get mixed up with what species was what. Not enough to ruin the book, but I think I definitely need to read some more of her other books till I get my head around it.
A great read, I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone wanting an erotica with a big heap of romance.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.
Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
