He was the most beautiful man in Olympus…and if I wasn’t careful, he was going to be my death.
*A scorchingly hot modern retelling of Psyche and Eros that’s as sinful as it is sweet.*
In the ultra-modern city of Olympus, there’s always a price to pay. Psyche Dimitriou knew she’d have to face Aphrodite’s jealous rage eventually, but she never expected her literal heart to be at stake…or for Aphrodite’s gorgeous son to be the one ordered to strike the killing blow.
Eros has no problem shedding blood. Raised to be his mother’s knife in the dark, he’s been conditioned to accept that he’s more monster than man. But when it comes time to take out his latest target…he can’t do it. Confused by his reaction to Psyche’s unexpected kindness, he does the only thing he can think of to keep her safe: he binds her to him, body and soul.
Psyche didn’t expect to find herself married to the glittering city’s most dangerous killer, but something about Eros wakens a fire inside her she’s never felt before. As lines blur and loyalties shift, Psyche realizes Eros might take her heart after all…and she’s not sure she can survive the loss.

This is the second book in the Dark Olympus series. Each of these books are standalones, however I would highly recommend reading them in order so you don’t lose your way. I know I would if I read them out of order. This book as well as our main characters, Psyche and Eros, are my most favorite in the Dark Olympus world to date! I’m truly loving this series so much. I loved the dynamic between Psyche and Eros. I loved how strong they both are and how much they complement one another. I especially loved how empowering Psyche was. The one and only thing I don’t like about this series, and made me take away a star from my rating, is that the same narrators seem to be doing this entire series. Though Zara Hampton-Brown and Alex Moorcock do an excellent job, it was really hard at times to remind myself that I was reading Eros & Psyche’s story, not Hades & Persephone. Their voices in both books don’t change with the characters which was somewhat disappointing and confusing. Overall, I really loved this book and this series is wonderful, here’s to diving into book three right now!
