Pea Chamberlain needs help. Her shoes, hair, clothes, make-up are all disasters and she really needs a makeover – especially if she wants to attract sexy fireman Griffin DeAngelo at the firemen’s masked ball. And who better to coax Pea out of her pod than the Goddess of Love, whom she invokes when she gets her hands on a book of enchantments. Sure enough, Venus works her magic on Pea, which is what she has been doing for eons – helping others find love. But who will help the Goddess of Love when she finds herself falling head over heels for the same sexy fireman she is trying to land for Pea? Could it be that Venus needs a love makeover herself?

I saw that a lot of people hated this book, but I absolutely loved it. However, I am tired of her killing off characters so that mortals can be with their Olympian mates lol. Venus was too cute, and I loved Pea. Vulcan was adorable and Griffin was pretty cool. I liked the story line, however, I should mention that it doesn’t take much for me to like a book. If I’m entertained, then it was good. If I can get lost in it, then it was worth it for me.
This book was steamy and absolutely hilarious. I can’t even count the number of times Venus made me laugh out loud. If you like romance and humor, this book is definitely worth checking out.
This book was very clever. It was not my favorite of the series only because I got tired of Venus saying, “Darling” but still it was very good. I love the Goddess Summoning series.
A better more well-written and generally better story than most of the other books in this series.
I’m getting a little tired of Cast’s books being set in Tulsa though! And the women being cat-lovers. Not very creative, IMHO.
I adore Pea. She made me laugh out loud and made this book SO much funnier than the others. Her clumsiness was so endearing and made her seem like a more realistic character. And I loved that she had random specific hobbies/loves – ballet, cooking, geraniums.
I thought both relationships moved way too fast for my liking though. Vulcan clearly knew Pea very well, but that was because he was basically stalking her through his fire-oracle. But other than that, Pea and Venus and Griffin didn’t know each other very well at all. I didn’t believe the relationships very much for that reason. I could believe that Venus & Griffin and Pea & Vulcan had a lot in common: the first two were both beautiful, but haughty when it came to love, as well as weary, picky, and lonely. And the other relationship they were both shy outcasts who had kind souls. So I understand why they belong together, I just don’t think they were very developed or fleshed-out. They were basically strangers.
But this was a cute book. I didn’t roll my eyes at the language. None of the characters talked out loud to themselves in an obnoxious/dorky way – only Vulcan did but I let that one slide because he probably actually always talked to himself because of his antisocial tendencies. And like I said before, it was actually a funny book between Pea’s awkwardness an Venus’ creative expletives.
I think I liked Lina and Hades’ love story in “Goddess of Spring” better though.
I have so much to say about this book. I started this one as a tester for the series. There’s always the risk that you’ll be lost when you do that, but luckily this book followed a new characters story, so it was easy to dive into. I absolutely loved the entwined mythology in this story. This is the exact reason that I fell in love with paranormal romance, actually. Books that follow the love story of the ancient pagan Gods are my true love and I would happily marry every book of this kind. Let’s just say that I loved this book.
I also found a great respect for this author because she brought forward a topic that I feel highly about. Sexuality in the modern woman. Okay, so she might have addressed this with great humour (seriously, I laughed my arse off), but she really explained it in a way that everyone would understand and agree with. Sex doesn’t make you promiscuous. It makes you a person. High Five, Venus!
Next – I’m absolutely in love with the creative curses that Venus uses. Seriously. With blasphemies like “by Hera’s freezing tits” and other jewels, you’ll be glued to the story, unable to turn away. This book, I would gladly give 10 stars and I’m definitely going to go back and read the series from the start.
