There is so much to love about this story! Not only is Piper badass, but Reece knows it and respects it. Despite Reece being an alpha male, he does not lock her away like a porcelain doll, or try to be overprotective. It is clear he will never take her freedom away, even though he does have the power to.

I was a little worried about the two of them at first. After all, Reece is a god, with the power to practically enslave someone, and Piper a human, and a fairly sheltered human at that. Growing up with unloving parents, Piper has no experience with real human connection.

But Reece is always careful with her. He is always checking to make sure that she wants their relationship as much as he does. Even when he was half crazed with grief, he gave her a choice. And that made them so wonderful together! Their mutual devotion to each other was adorable and it always made me want to read more. This book had none of my usual problems with alpha males which made it so wonderful to read.

I really wish I could give this story 4.5 stars. The few problems I have with this book are so nitpicky but a five star rating still feels dishonest. My biggest problem is how Hades supposedly set Orpheus up to fail to be kind to Eurydice. But no one knew it was an abusive relationship until only 200 years ago. At first I thought only Reece didn't know, but Hades knew. However, if that was the case, then why did he give Orpheus Elysium? That part did not make sense.

Another thing was Reece's reluctance to talk to Eros. If there is anyone who could help him with Piper, it would be the god of love who married a mortal. But Reece just continues being tormented by the thought of Piper growing old and dying while he remained ageless when he could have talked to Eros about it. Eros's wife, Psyche, is never even mentioned, even though I think that's highly relevant to Reece's situation. Okay, now here's my most nitpicky thing: whenever Eros is mentioned in the book, it's always followed up with "the god of love". Yeah, I know. Mentioning it the first time makes sense. Not everyone goes gaga over Greek mythology like I do and Eros isn't exactly Zeus. But why add it again the second and third time? It got a little annoying. But I told you that was nitpicky.

Seriously, this is a great story! I wholeheartedly recommend it.
