Lina’s trendy bakery in Tulsa is proving to be less than lucrative, and she must come up with a plan. When she stumbles upon an Italian Goddess cookbook, Lina can’t help but think she’s found the answer to her problem—even if it means invoking a goddess to save her business.
Soon enough, Lina finds herself face-to-face with Demeter, who has a plan of her own. She proposes that Lina exchange souls with Persephone, the Goddess of Spring, who will breathe new life into the bakery. In return, Lina must set order to the Underworld.
Before all this, Lina’s problems mostly involved sourdough and second dates. Now that she embodies the enchanting Persephone, Lina has weightier things on her mind—like the formidable task of bringing Spring to a world of spirits. But when the handsome, brooding Hades kindles a spark in her heart, Lina wonders if this Lord of the Underworld might be the man of her dreams.
OMG! The Goddess Of Spring ( book # 2 ) was, in our opinions, T.H.E most romantic mythology, fantasy, paranormal ( not so sure about paranormal, but it fits somehow ) magical, lovestory, novel we have read in a long time! We LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. The first book in the Goddess Summoning series gave us a taste of what was to come next, and boy were we thrilled to know this book was about another Greek God. But not just about any God. Nope. This story´s main characters were 2 very well known Gods in the real mythology. Hades, God of the Underworld, and Persephone, Goddess of Spring. Dear Lord, they couldn´t have been any different and yet more perfect for one another.
If you know your Greek Gods, then you probably know the real story about Hades and Persephone. What happened to them and how they ended up with each other. While legends were quite brutal back in the days, P. C. Cast managed to turn something brute-ish into an actual lovestory that made our hearts leap out of our chests! Bravo to the author for keeping it close to real with the facts and still making this story unique!!
When we think about Hades, we see an evil God who rules the dead, keeping everything in check, right? Well, just imagine that kind of God with to-die-for looks. Imagine that God being rude. And then imagine him, in all his glory, standing next to one of the Gods most beautiful figure amongst them all. Persephone. The Goddess is send to the underworld to rule the dead with Hades. How awful. So far, so good?
Hades softens towards the beautiful Goddess and shows her a different side of himself. When they fall in love with each other, something awful happens. Something that should never have happened in the first place. One tragic thing leads to another and a reader is left with so many ugly emotions ( angst is written big in this book!! )
We found ourselves rooting for Hades to finally find love, and we were cheering for Lina to find some happiness in her life. Wait….did we just mention Lina? Hmm….damn, we did, didn´t we? Well, Lina is apart of the whole mess. Read the book and find out for yourself why and how..* evil laugh*
The sex was something we´ll never forget. There was no BDSM in this book which was fantastic ( we need a change of wallpaper ). The close scenes Hades and Persephone / Lina had were something off the charts steamy! We´re not going to say ” Best sex ever ” because it wasn´t. It was just sexy and steamy as hell ( or Hades)!!
With the Goddess of Spring, the author once again impressed us with her easy, swift writing. We had no troubles reading this book and were totally bummed that their story ended. The devastation, the agony, the angst was all over with the last page. * sniffle *
A fabulous read for any romance lover!
