I have always loved fantasy and paranormal romance. In fact most of my favorite books are all fantasy romance. So when I learned of a book series that has an overarching plot of over 30 books I could not resist. I have decided to blog my reading journey. Every book. Yep, that’s right. I am going to be reading every book. All forty two of them.
I will be following the recommended reading order the author herself recommends if you want to read with me you are welcome to do so. I am going to try to read at least three books a month. Here we go, jumping right into it.

About the Book
Julian of Macedon has spent centuries in hell, where the only respite he knows is measured in a handful of weeks whenever he’s summoned through an arcane spell. With the modern age, those summonings are becoming fewer and fewer, and he lives in fear of the day when they’ll stop for good.
Grace Alexander doesn’t believe in much of anything. But when her “psychic” girlfriend talks her into performing the spell as a joke on her birthday, the last thing she ever imagines is it working. But work it does. Now, she finds an ancient Greek general in her living room and trapped in her life for the next month. Worse, they learn too late that part of the spell means Grace will lose her sanity should he return to his captivity.
Now it’s a race against time to free him. Something much easier said than done, since it was the ancient gods who cursed him to his fate. And the last thing they want is to see him go free of the punishment the gods believe he
deserves. It’s man against the gods, and a race against time.
My Thoughts // ⭐⭐⭐.5
I really liked the beginning of this book. The romance, the mystery of the curse and Julian and Grace’s dynamic and relationship. However, the reason I did not give this book 4 stars was how she portrayed Aphrodite and Athena. They seemed cheesy and rushed and ver ooc from the brief moments we did see them earlier in the book. They both seemed to be written by a what seemed to be a teenage girl n the end. Their characters did not match how I would assume goddesses would act, especially how they were portrayed however briefly in the beginning/middle of the book.
Julian and Grace I loved and adored. Their relationship and their chemistry was everything and I loved them both so much. The chemistry between them was so hot and I just loved Julian. His character was well developed and I loved how he saw Grace and how much he cared for her. Same with Grace, I loved her character and how she interacted with Julian.
Now the scenes between Grace and Julian. Oh so hot. I loved the epilogue and I hope to see more of them in the rest of the series.
