GoodReads Summary:

For fans of the Oracle of Delphi series...and for those who aren't...
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:

I have always been drawn to mythology books--they are a real favorite of mine--though I have not really read one coming from adult fiction. That, combined with it being set in Ireland made me instantly intrigued. 

This is the story of Siobhan and Liam, also known as Lord Apollo or the god of the Sun and how the two would come to bare their children. Their story is not an easy one--it has highs and lows. This story is driven by its characters, with Siobhan drawing readers into her story. She is a strong female mortal who, most of the time, does not give into Apollo (which I would think would not be an easy task to do). Apollo is an ALPHA male, of course being a god he would have to be given that he has been living for 3,000 years. I did think there were moments when I would be quite reluctant to trust him. 

Overall, this is a good story. From what I have learned, this is the parent's story of the author's young adult series, Oracle of Delphi. Reading Lover, Divine has me intrigued enough to add the series to my to be read list. :-) If I had some complaints, I had issues with it lagging here and there and I got frustrated at times with Siobhan giving into Apollo or trusting him a bit too much for my taste. However, this really is a great spin on adult mythology!  If you are a fan of mythology or a love story with fantasy elements in general, you should consider adding this one to your to be read list!
