Being the son of Aphrodite isn’t a walk in the clouds. Rebelling against his demi-god status, billionaire make-up mogul Toraos Stephanos fights to separate his personal life and the immortal world by swearing off demi-god girlfriends forever. Too bad his newest employee can't take the hint.
Though Nikki secretly pines for her smoking hot boss, no way will she jeopardize her job and independence professing her love to a guy so clearly out of her league. Too bad that leaves her with only imagining him naked and thinking evil thoughts about the new girl. After a single bottle of Ambrosia and one night of passion... Nikki finally thinks she has a chance with the man of her dreams. But the next morning, Tor pretends like nothing happened, leaving Nikki with an emerging drive for combat—after all, turns out she is the daughter of Ares and she's about to make her mama proud.
All is fair in love and war... and Nikki's not about to let anyone forget it.

“Holy Mary, mother of God, the man was half-naked.
Flawless, tan skin stretched across a perfect muscular back”
That's Tor Stephanos, Nikki's hot.... Yummectable (Yummy + Delectable?! ) boss that she been lusting and trying to endure ?! ( yeah . right! ) from day 1 till now. She has been working as his personal assistant for six years at Kythera Cosmetics. Imagine? Sharing six years with this stud?! ..well, more of a god! Yes, Tor is a demi god.. He's Aphrodite's ( yes the goddess of love and beauty! ) son! The only problem was... Looks like it's a one sided affair! Nikki had all her eyes for his boss but then Tor seems to look at her on a more professional level. Why? Aside from he is workaholic to the extreme..he sworn not to date any mythical creature.
“Never again will I date demigoddesses, goddesses, nymphs, satyrs, wood sprites.” He switched to his other hand. “Trolls, witches, banshees, sirens, or any other magical creature. They’re psycho. And even if Nikki doesn’t know she’s a demi-goddess, she’s still one and capable of far worse than jock itch should things end badly. Not to mention I’d be out my favorite assistant.”
Yes! Nikki is a demi goddess !... and she may not be aware! ( that she is the daughter of Ares , the god of war?!) What on Olympus name?! Tor being the goddess of love's son and Nikki, the god of war's daughter?!! Something is really wrong here! And way.. way interesting!
Then one night , over a business dinner with the new creative director, Creed Killion ( which happens to be lingerie-worthy gorgeous!) and also got his good eye over our Nikki! ( lucky , lucky ..uhmm demi goddess!) ...pesky, bitchy Demitria ( their corporate lawyer) drugged ..slipped an ambrosia to Tor's wine! And you know what this ambrosia do?! Yes, it brings out the animal in a god! And lowers the defenses of a Demi god--- Like ... Can make any god drunk ...and uhmmm super horny?! Whoooops! Covers my mouth! ( but secretly smilling?! Teehee! )
Soooo... Demi thinks tonight is her lucky night to bag Tor?! No ...no.. No... So, who got the grand prize?? It's.....of course Nikki, the reliable personal assistant! Of course when, Tor got drunk / intoxicated , ..and went a little possessive?! ( Because of Creed?! ) He insisted that Nikki help him to his penthouse. You know what happens next! Hours and hours of explosive pleasure .... and god-like bedroom... and I forgot to mention "elevator" maneuvers?! It was STEAMY in bold letters! Tor just seems to get his hands off Nikki! And it was just like ...ALL of Nikki's fantasies came to life!!! Oh yeah! "It" came alive ! Whoooopeeee!!!
Sooooo...it was a mission accomplished?! Hmmmmm.. Not exactly. The next morning, when Nikki's hopes are so up.. ( like a happy ever after in mind?! ) ... Eager to see her "boss" ... she was crushed when Tor seem to forget everything! Yes! This ambrosia thing is stronger than a roofie that you won't remember a single thing! Of course, Nikki is enraged! She is after all Ares' daughter! I love it when she willed things to happen.. it was so funny! Like the perpetual erection? Demi's little shoe accident? And Demi's uncontrollable whammy mouth?! I was laughing so hard! I can't blame Demi being so pissed off. She is the daughter of Narcissus after all?! Can't accept that Nikki taking all the limelight from her! First, she got Tor ?.. and becoming the new face of Goddess line! There goes Nikki! Viola! Instant model!
I love how the story turned out to be. With Nikki's little scheme on getting even with Tor? Or was it like getting Tor?! Playing hard to get?! Like, dangling a carrot over a horse but not giving the carrot? What a word reference?! I had no idea horses like carrots?! I'm thinking rabbits maybe?! Haha. And Tor compared to a horse?! Hmmm... he sure is! haha. Surely, Ms. Boone Brux knows how to play with words!
Not to mention the appearances of several gods? It was so entertaining! Add up Nikki's absentee dad , Ares reappearance?! It was a circus! And I love it when he goes all protective of Nikki! Like he should be as a Dad?! And boy, I was expecting that it will be war of the gods when he found out that his daughter is hooking up with Aphrodite's son?! It would be perfect! ...but well, maybe some other time?! Still , I loved it!
Overall, loved the ending! And if you want to see how demigods make their Happy endings? Read this book! It was fun, entertaining, steamy and will make you giddy plus Tor can make you swoon like a total goddess!
