4 Olympus Crowns
So, I was not aware that this is actually connected to a series (Can be read as a standalone however) but I felt like I missed a lot of the backstory. Not so much that I couldn’t enjoy the book, but enough to where I really want to know what lead up to this book. So I would suggest starting at King of Shadows so you’re not left wondering like I was. Having said that Amelia has crafted a deliciously dark and devious romance that will have you salivating for the anti-hero in every way.
Zeus is not a good guy in fact he is legit the complete opposite of that. He is rude, sadistic and cruel. He takes what he wants no questions asked. And when he meets Brigit she’s who he wants. From the moment he sees her he is captivated by the façade she portrays and the underlying innocence he can sense. So Zeus does what he usually does and takes her for himself.
Brigit is running and hiding from her father for reasons that will make your stomach turn. She only had so many options available to her that would help protect her so she chose Olympus. And in her naiveté was not aware of what exactly that would entail. Well, Zeus is there to teach her.
The chemistry between Zeus and Brigit was palpable, the things that he does to her are enough to make your blood pressure skyrocket and melt your Kindle into nothing. I actually had to put my Kindle down multiple times and get myself under control that’s how hot some of these scenes were.
I enjoyed this story but I really do wish I had read the books prior to this beforehand. I think it would have made some parts make more sense and really give you more of a backbone to fall on so you knew what was going on behind the scenes and what exactly had transpired between Zeus and his brother Hades. Overall, if dark romance with anti-hero’s and super steamy scenes are your jam than this book is for you!!
