Synopsis (Goodreads):
It’s Round Two of high stakes Love Connection on Olympus, and this time, everything has changed. For Aphrodite, at least.

Ares is on deck, and Aphrodite is nervous. As much as she loves to hook up with him, she doesn’t trust him as far as she could throw him, which isn’t very far. He’s a big dude. They haven’t been together in a very long time, but she can’t resist him. She never could. Even when every part of her screamed that he was a liar.

Ares has a plan to keep Aphrodite, for good this time. He wants to win the game, but he’ll hold back to get what he wants. He’s sitting on a chance that he’s been waiting thousands of years for, and he’ll do what he has to do to convince her to stay forever.

The only thing that could stop him is the secret that he’s been keeping from her for eons. If she finds out, it will destroy everything.

Kat and Dillon have been through a lot, and everything has been to protect their younger siblings. They have sacrificed everything to make sure their brother and sister are safe. The players are tough and loyal. Fierce and determined. But they become each other’s weakness, even though they fight it, and even though it means danger for Kat and her sister.

If Aphrodite can get the players over their egos and issues long enough to see that they’re meant for each other, the competition will be a piece of cake. One that she’ll eat a la mode, right in front of Ares, if she beats him.
My Thoughts on Snake in the Grass: Holy smokes. The end of this book hit like a freight train. A big freight train. One that was probably carrying large, heavy things that would make getting hit by a freight train even more painful.

Wait. I'm not saying that this book is painful to read. It's not. It's kinda glorious. In the OMG! PLEASE PUT MY HEART BACK IN MY CHEST, YOU FIENDISH AUTHOR sort of way.

Yeah, so, umm... this book is good. Between Dita and Ares engaging in their sexy, let-me-rip-your-clothes-off-and-have-angry-sex-wth-you competition, Kat and Dillon are just... well, I like them. Dillon has issues. Kat has issues. The fact that their respective siblings hooked up with one another and are FREAKING ADORABLE in a way that makes baby kittens look like trolls just made it all better.

Seriously, I can't think of one single thing that didn't keep me hooked. Kat and Dillon? They were awesome and damaged and I LIKE THAT. Kiki and Owen? Did you see the part about their freaking adorable-ish-ness? Yeah, they were sweet. Dita and Ares? Wow. Issues much?

Ye, gods! I think I have *flaily* hands.

The series is really REALLY blowing me away. It's fun. It's full of mythology that's just twisted enough to make me grin. It has characters I care about.



  1. I have the first book in this series! I should read that.
