Born into one of the wealthiest families in Ireland, Siobhan Law has status, privilege, and a secret: The Greek gods of Olympus and their kingdom in the clouds are real, and her family acts as one of their agents on Earth.
When the beautiful immortal celeste Liam Argyros shows up claiming to have come to Earth to deal in the affairs of the divine, Siobhan finds herself unable to resist his charms. New to the game of passion and seduction, she quickly ends up in over her head, sinking deeper with every attempt Liam makes to win her over.
But Liam’s divine mission is far more complex than she ever imagined and nothing is truly as it seems. Because Liam has a secret of his own: He is Apollo, Olympian god of the Sun, and his mission will never be complete until he has claimed Siobhan’s heart forever.

Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review courtesy of the Enchanted Book Promotions.
This was a solid read that I enjoyed while on vacation. It was certainly a fresh new take on the Greek gods which had me intrigued and curious to find out what comes next! My main complaint would be that I found Siobhan quite the pushover. After instant-attraction, she barely stands up for herself and we didn’t get to know her and Apollo as a couple at all. Despite his claims of loving her (not just lusting her), it’s hard to see where the deep and lasting love is coming from. It also seems odd to have such a virginal lead who puts up with controlling males in her life in the modern day and age. I think it would have helped if I had read the “Oracle of Delphi” series which I may go back and do so I have more background.
All that aside, I so like the new take of the Greek god’s world and I think this is a series that would grow on me as I get to know the world more. The action was certainly unexpected and completely surprised me on the reveals! The epilogue was also adorable, but I won’t provide and spoilers.
