Some seek love, some seek power. For Aphrodite, the two are permanently intertwined. And when the goddess of desire yearns for love, who among mortals could possibly resist her power?
Firefighters Ashur, Kieran and Hugh are damaged men. A tragedy that took the life of their colleague has left them scarred, both physically and emotionally. Love and power are nothing to them but empty words.
Hoping to reignite their mother’s passion for life and love, the erotes bring these mortal men to Aphrodite’s attention.
But with the blackness inside Ash, Kier and Hugh becoming ever deeper, will it take more than the power of a goddess to save them? And if she loses that battle, how will she rediscover the path to healing for her own emotionally damaged heart?


Her perfume filled his nostrils and a strange roar in his eardrums slowed his thinking until he couldn’t concentrate, couldn’t do anything except sip from her proffered well of moist sweet nectar when he leaned in to take the kiss. Her lips were both spicy and sweet at the same time. The taste was exotic and new, and it blended perfectly with the familiar whiskey-laced breath of his friend as Hugh joined them in a three-way kiss like none he had ever experienced before.
Time ceased to exist as he dipped into her mouth and supped. The ever-present vestiges of his anguish receded as hunger took its place. Desire. Craving. That was all he knew, especially when her moan vibrated across the back of his throat. First one, then the other of them plunged with a tongue here, nipped there with eager teeth. He sucked at the fullness of her bottom lip and felt in turn the delicate flicker of her tongue as she rasped it across his own.
Demanding, then asking. Dominating, then pleading. The dance went on and he couldn’t tell who was in control. Or out of it. He didn’t care. If she wanted to be in charge, that was okay by him. He would happily go wherever she led.
Her body was as soft as it had promised to be, and yet somehow hard and unyielding. Earlier she’d been wearing a white dress, but now she was naked between them. How was that possible? He groaned and heard an answering sound erupt out of Hugh before his friend leaned down to take one of her long pink nipples into his mouth. Blindly he reached out and grappled the other breast, weighing its enticing heaviness in his palm.
Slow this down. Catch our breath.

Jennifer Lynne's Gods of Love series continues with mom, the goddess Aphrodite, feeling as if she's lost that loving feeling after the death of her love long ago.  Her sons have found happiness and love in the mortal world and after much searching have found just the man to make her feel powerful again....if only he weren't so grief stricken and sworn off sex in honor of the one he lost.  Aphrodite will have to use any means necessary to help him heal and bring him back to the lovers still here.  Along the way she learns surprising things about humans, and herself, and the difference between lust and love in a super steamy story ranging from m/f, m/m, and ménage couplings.

Ashur has always been the responsibility one even as a child.  People have looked up to him and tried to emulate him has he's a formidable presence.  Young firefighter Aiden in fact chose his career because of his adoration for Ashur and it's his death that drives Ashur to a low point of darkness and inner turmoil.  Ashur hates himself for his one moment of perceived irresponsibility and tortures himself by shutting himself off from happiness.  Even his fellow firefighters, and lovers, are unable to help him as they're dealing with their own grief.  Hugh has always been the calming influence but is left frustrated by constantly being turned away while Kieran has sought refuge in a bottle and willing bedmates.  Their once tight and loving group has been torn asunder.  Aphrodite uses her mythical abilities to remind Ash that happiness still exists and that in the arms of loved ones he can honor what Aiden and they all once had and can still have.  They finally accept their grief and are much stronger because of Aphrodite's embrace.

Ms. Lynne nicely combines magical abilities with reality in a story where the men easily accept the special nature and abilities of Aphrodite unquestioningly.  The sexual interludes morph from sensual to intense in a fast build-up that surprisingly allows the hidden grief to come through.  The male characters were appealing but I would've loved to have a more in-depth view of them as these strong yet silent types, with scars both inside and out, are a particular favorite of mine.  Aphrodite on the other hand, with her mythical nature, was hard to relate to.  The issues she was going through paled in comparison to that of Ashur and the boys after all.  Though the ending felt rushed with only a hint of future happiness I still found this another satisfying installment in Ms. Lynne's mythological series and look forward to the next story in this unique series.

My rating for this is a B+

*I received this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.

Sometimes love can flourish in the most unexpected places…
Ella is in love with her best friend Kade. But her love has not been returned, and when bisexual Kade shows no signs of becoming romantic towards her, she decides to call a halt on her unrequited love and accept an invitation to a celebrated sex club.
Kade is distressed when the woman he is beginning to see as more than a friend decides to visit Secrets before he can tell her how he feels. He follows her into the club and witnesses her at play with the enigmatic Anteros, a sexy god-like man who seems to know exactly how to satisfy her innermost cravings. But Anteros also feeds the hidden desires within Kade. How can he admit his feelings for Ella when he’s not sure he can commit with his whole heart?

But love cannot flourish unless it is returned, and how will he convince Kade – a man who occasionally enjoys other men – that he can be true to the woman he loves? What will happen to this couple when the night ends and they return to the real world outside the door of Secrets?
Has one of the gods of love finally taken on a challenge he cannot fulfill?
