Synopsis: Will the love of her life distract True from reuniting with…the love of her life? Find out in the third book in Kieran Scott’s delightful series that blends ancient mythology with contemporary romance.
True Olympia is in the home stretch. After being banished to Earth without her powers as punishment for falling in love with a mortal, True was tasked with matching three couples before she could return home. Now, with two couples fully in love, she is ready for her time in New Jersey to come to an end.
But as easy as it should be to match one more couple, things are complicated by her immortal love Orion (who also appeared on Earth, just without the memory of their love). He’s dating another girl, but can’t seem to avoid spending time with True. Something about her finally seems familiar to him. But if True wants to get back with Orion for real, she needs to focus. Just one more couple, one more couple…
This is the third and I do believe final book in the series. The author tells the story from many characters perspective so you are able to understand how they think. In this book I felt that the author brought in more mythology to mix with the romance than in the other books. I enjoyed the other books, but if you are looking for more of a mythology retell or Percy Jackson this is not the book for you. The book is heavy on the contemporary romance. Typical high school drama with the different cliques and a love triangle.
How to Sell it: This series is about Eros the goddess of love being punished for rescuing Orion, having a relationship with him, and ignoring her responsibility’s. Zeus banishes her to earth without her powers with the assignment that she has to make three matches. Once she has done that she will be brought back and will be able to be with Orion again. Eros has no concept of how to live like a human and she has to learn that as she is making her matches.
