Synopsis (Goodreads):
Aphrodite knows better than anyone how the heart works. Just don’t ask her to figure out her own.

She’s been away from Olympus for weeks, which wasn’t near long enough for her move on from everything that had happened to her, to get past the betrayal and loss. When she returns, she has no idea what she’s walking into other than a new competition, this time against Artemis. The goddesses have never been friends, but now they have more in common than ever, though they’d rather face eat ambrosia straight than admit it.

Artemis can’t help but be smug. Her player, Josie, is a private investigator who’s lost more than she’s won. Every waking moment has been consumed by her fire to catch the man who killed her partner, and when Jon comes back into town after leaving her without a word, it’s more than she can handle. She’ll never let him in. Not again.

But Jon only did what he thought was right, and he’ll do anything he can, give her everything he has to give to prove that he can be trusted with her heart again.

With Adonis gone and the threat of Ares around every corner, Aphrodite’s past presses on her, leaving her more alone than she’s ever been. She can’t help wondering if she’ll ever escape, and how much pain she’ll endure before the whole ordeal is behind her.
Thoughts on Doe Eyes: I'm still wickedly in love with the idea of the gods playing with human lives to liven up their own. We've seen Dita triumph in past contests while paying a heavy price in her own love life. For all that she can come across as shallow and flighty at times, she makes some hard decisions that cost her dearly. I respect that.

Fresh off her own heartbreak, Aphrodite has to put her player on the road to love while trying to outmaneuver Artemis. Honestly, Dita's a mess. She makes some bad choices of her own this time around and her distraction puts her players on shaky ground.

I LOVE the relationship between Dita and Perry. Perry is SO there for Dita. She's Dita's rock and her sounding board. And when Dita stumbles, Perry's the one who has to give her the slap to the face she needs to get back on track. Not going to lie, the creative names they call Ares gave me a serious case of the giggles.

You have to respect a friend who has your back to completely. *thumbs up*

And Heff. The poor guy breaks my heart. I want him to find his happiness. I just... *weeps* Oh, Heff. The guy slays me.

Fun and fast-paced with a nice mystery and a couple who have A LOT of baggage to get past, Doe Eyes is another stellar installment in the Good Gods series. Staci Hart doesn't disappoint and I can't wait to see what's in store for Dita and her crew next.
