Review Tour: Lover, Divine by A. Star

 Let me start off by saying that the fangirl in me is very happy after reading Lover, Divine. I am a huge fan of Diantha Jones who also writes as A. Star and I am thrilled that I was able to take part in this review tour. Thank you, Diantha!

Synopsis:
Born into one of the wealthiest families in Ireland, Siobhan Law has status, privilege, and a secret: The Greek gods of Olympus and their kingdom in the clouds are real, and her family acts as one of their agents on Earth.

When the beautiful immortal celeste Liam Argyros shows up claiming to have come to Earth to deal in the affairs of the divine, Siobhan finds herself unable to resist his charms. New to the game of passion and seduction, she quickly ends up in over her head, sinking deeper with every attempt Liam makes to win her over.

But Liam’s divine mission is far more complex than she ever imagined and nothing is truly as it seems. Because Liam has a secret of his own: He is Apollo, Olympian god of the Sun, and his mission will never be complete until he has claimed Siobhan’s heart forever.

My Thoughts
"Fate is one scary bastard."
Lover, Divine is a contemporary Greek mythology story which takes place twenty-odd years before Diantha's Oracle of Delphi series and it tells the story of how Siobhan Law and Apollo (major player in the OOD series) met and fell in love. From the beginning there is no denying that Apollo wants Siobhan who is part of an Influential family, mortals who know of the Greek gods and help with their earthly affairs.
Star's writing kept me hooked as it always does whether it's one of her young adult books or adult and the tension between Siobhan and Apollo is HOT! I also love anything to do with Ireland so with Lover, Divine being set in Ireland and those beautiful accents, I was definitely in love. Music also plays a huge part in the book since Apollo is a musical genius and Siobhan a whiz at the violin and my favorite, the drums.
It's hard to say a lot about the story because for readers who haven't read the Oracle of Delphi series, I could give away some spoilers but the ending is so sweet! You OOD fans know what I'm talking about...
Overall, Lover, Divine was a lovely story. Siobhan is a tough and loving character who isn't willing to take any crap from anyone and Apollo is his smug and gorgeous self as always. The setting and scenes between them are perfect and the input to the Oracle of Delphi books was interesting.
