About Kamery Solomon

Kamery is not the person who grew up dreaming of the day that she would clutch her very own novel to her chest, tears brimming over the rims of her eyes as she thought about how she'd written it herself, finally! In fact, anything remotely like that didn't even happen until she was actually holding her first book in her hand, amazed that she'd written it and wondering how on Earth she'd managed to do it when it hadn't ever occurred to her to write one until months before. Surprisingly, though, it was just what she never realized she loved doing.

When starting out in life, Kamery had (and still has) big dreams to perform on Broadway. She loves music and acting very much, while she and dance have a love/hate relationship; she would love to do it and every form of dance decides it hates that about her, haha! The one constant she always had between the performing world and the book world were the stories, tales that transported her to other worlds and made her feel like she really could do anything. Finally, she decided she wanted to do that for someone else and sat down to write.

It's been a few years since she held that first book, realizing that she really liked writing and wanted to do more, but the love that blossomed in that moment has only grown. Currently, Kamery works from home in the White Mountains of Arizona, while taking care of her two adorable kids, a girl and a boy, and talking her sweet husband Jake's ear off about the insane amount of characters in her head who are ready to fight to the death for a chance at their own novels. She also gets together with other authors in the family and they all gab together, making up The Royal Court of the Queens of Romance. It truly is a wonderful life!

This was an enjoyable and easy read. I think that most anyone who enjoys romance will enjoy this. I just can't give it a full five stars because there wasn't a time when reading it that I was really surprised or had to think about anything.

Unlike most of the romance out today, Zeus has no graphic anything, so don't worry about giving this to a teen to read.

I'm on the fence with this one. I rated it 4 rather than 3 stars because I think it has a lot of potential. I love Greek mythology and any book that represents this is going on my TBR. Aside from some minor grammatical errors, there were some inconsistencies or things that just felt a little off. For example, Zeus is a God. He has been around a long time, yet he came off as a young twenty something year old guy trying to win over a sweet, innocent girl. Not some all powerful deity who just happened to be exiled temporarily. Wait! He did come across that way at first while in the club after having just met Karly, but then he drifted away from that. And most twenty something year old guys don't own a resort/casino in Vegas who aren't "harder/tougher". I think the author was trying to go for his coming across as someone used to getting what he wants to "changing" into a guy that Karly would be interested in, but he felt off. He was working too hard to get there at the start of their relationship. He does come to explain why he came off the way he did in the club, but he also stumbles through that conversation. Again, not how I would expect a deity to come across.

We know Karly is 21 and off to Vegas to continue her education after completing 2 years of college in her home town. Small time girl overwhelmed by sin city, yep. Some of her responses were interesting too. She was angry about his being divorced because he had not told her when they first met. Um, when I first meet someone I don't start off with the negatives about myself such as "I was married, but turns out that was a big mistake". Those are things shared as a relationship develops (basically, when you know you want to be in one and are both on the same page). She runs away from her parents home and leaves her "boyfriend" there to explain why she ran off? BTW, I don't see the King of the Gods calling himself "boyfriend" nor giving goofy grins. Sexy, playful, cheeky, sure, but not goofy.

So, I do love the idea of the story, but (and people, this could just be me) I think our hero needs to be a little more consistent than he came across. Karly eventually comes around and she is easier to believe than he was. Again, I did like the story line and will read the next book (Poseidon is my favorite brother), but I hope he is more reflective of what a God would be throughout the book and not just at the beginning and sprinkled here and there throughout the remainder of the story.
