Once Atlas, the Titan god of strength, was the Greek goddess Nike’s slave. Now he is her master. And soon these sworn enemies, who are destined to destroy one another, will be forced to risk everything for a chance at love.

This story is exactly as it should be for a .5 book in a series…short and sweet.  Well, actually short and sexy.  I don’t know that you can describe Atlas and Nike as sweet.  At least not in the beginning.

Although this story moves quickly, there is actually a lot of backstory between the hero and heroine so that’s okay.  And, by the end of the narrative, these two are pretty sweet.  At least when it comes to each other.

With the way things ended, I’m hoping to see Nike and Atlas again within this series.  I really enjoyed both characters and would love to see some interaction between them and the Lords.  There’s not much to do with the Lords in this story, but there is something that will certainly be important to Paris that we find out.  Like I said, it’s a quick read, so I would recommend it to anyone who is loving this series.

5 stars
