An author that I like and follow recommended this book, and because the cover and premise were both so gorgeous, I couldn't resist.

However, this book wasn't quite for me -- and it's a "it's not you, it's me" type of thing. I don't typically read erotica (rarely even romance for that matter), so I definitely wasn't the target audience. However, for what it was, I thought it was quite enjoyable. The characters were interesting -- I'm a sucker for a bad boy with a heart of gold and a damsel in distress who actually is a badass and totally in charge of her own destiny -- and well fleshed out (pun intended?). The smut was quite smutty, but the character development and underlying story was also intriguing.

3.5/5 stars, but rounded up because this isn't my typical genre.

Thank you to NetGalley and Dreamscape Media for an advanced copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Neon Gods: A Scorchingly Hot Modern Retelling of Hades and Persephone starts off the Dark Olympus book series by Katee Robert..

This book is an erotic fantasy retelling of the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone. In this story, Persephone is 24 and somewhat of a celebrity in Olympus. She is one of the daughters of the goddess Demeter and their family is usually making headlines in the tabloids. Persephone’s goal is to finish getting her Masters degree then leave to California for her PhD when she turns 25 in the Spring and her trust fund becomes available. However her mother has other plans and without consulting Persephone she betrotheds her to Zeus.

Rather than marry a man she doesn’t love who has a reputation of disposing of his wives, Persephone runs away and ends up in the lower city section of Olympus which is run by Hades. She meets Hades who helps her go into hiding for three months until the Spring arrives. By Olympus law Hades and Zeus cannot cross into each other’s territories so Persephone should be safe there. During this time the two will make it public knowledge that they’re intimate so Zeus will no longer want Persephone. Hades can exact revenge on his sworn enemy by sleeping with his betrothed and humiliating him.
Of course the chemistry is fire and these two start to wonder if this can be the real thing and not just sex.

Neon Gods was well written and creative and I had fun reading it. Told in alternating chapters by Persephone and Hades you get to see the story from each of their perspectives.

I liked that Hades has a dark edge about him. Persephone is sassy and smart. Much of the interactions between these two are about give and take, about compromise. Neon Gods was well-written, sexy romance with two sassy main characters. I recommend this if you enjoy steamy erotic fantasy.

I just can't read this. I know they both consent to use each other, but it still makes me uncomfortable. I'm just not the right person for this book.

However, the writing is quite good. The author definitely has experience with the craft. The novel never felt like it was dragging. ( )

Romance erotica between Hades and Persephone ( )

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. Neon Gods by Katee Robert is the first book Dark Olympus, her contemporary retelling of Greek Myths series. This super steamy retelling of the story of Hades and Persephone didn’t really work for me I found the characters bland, thought the world-building needed more explanation and the plot stale. I was looking for a fresh take on the characters similar to her delightful Disney Villains series and I didn’t find it in this book. Steam Level: Very Steamy.
