Lover, Divine by A Star

What They Say:

Lover, Divine by A. Star
(Mythos: Gods & Lovers #1)
Publication date: February 25th 2014
Genres: Adult, Mythology, Romance

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.

What I Say:

I would like to thank Xpresso Book Tours for sending me the ARC of this book and for allowing me to be part of the book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Siobhan Law is a young, very talented musician when into her life walks Liam Argyros, walks in to her life and into her position in the Orchestra, despite herself she is drawn to him, even though initially annoyed at him for taking her place she can’t quite walk away.

Siobhan is young and naive, everyone around her knows who Liam really is, her family command her to be nice to him as they are expected to do, but Siobhan’s rebellious side comes out and she isn’t as nice to him at first as she is expected to be, far from putting Liam or Apollo (his real name) off this makes him more determined to make her his.  I loved the banter between Siobhan and Liam, it made the book more interesting, rather than her just giving in to him.
As their love grows and Siobhan finds out more, she is disgruntled to learn that she was the only one who didn’t know that truth and her pride is hurt just as much as her feelings. 

Siobhan’s best friend Vicky is quite a quirky character with an unusual use of language to say the least but she was nice and really loved her friend, especially when she was told the truth after a disastrous series of events. 

Although the story was more around the love affair between Siobhan and Apollo, by the end it had built to a really good opener to a series of books, not quite leaving it on a cliff edge but leaving the reader thinking there is far more to come….

4 out of 5 stars
