When you think of Greek gods and goddesses, you don’t usually think of them in a modern sense. Jeny Heckman did an amazing job at bringing the traits of Greek gods into modern day people such as football star, Colton Stone, and Dr. Lillian Morgan.
The author created realistic situations and excelled at placing obstacles between the hero and heroine. One of her strengths that amazed me was her ability to write from a man’s perspective. It was fun getting inside Colt’s head and witnessing his easy temper. Well written and a great read.
My rating: 4 stars

“No,” Chelsea said, climbing into the large man’s lap and running her hand up and down the stubble of his rusty beard. “’ Cause she said Daddy was perfect. She might still be sad but I’m not sad anymore and told her we need a new daddy.”
“Ah… S-so, the game. Do you guys have jerseys?” Colt asked, changing the topic before those beautiful blue eyes inquired if he wanted the job.
