The Maenad of Manhattan

The Maenad of Manhattan
by Liz Meldon
Genre: Paranormal Romance

The Maenad of Manhattan (Lovers and Liars #1)
The glory days of Ancient Greece are long gone, and the gods of the Old World are scattered across the globe. As their popularity dwindles, as their worshipers forget, their power fades. Luckily for Aphrodite, she’s a household name. After all, how could anyone ever forget the Greek goddess of Love?

Unfortunately, no one seems to know or care about her divinity. In a world of skeptics and technology-crazed mortals, loneliness and boredom have taken hold. Her life consists of romance advice columns, martini bars, and flings with empty-headed men—until she meets Loki.

She’s intrigued: it’s been decades—centuries even—since she laid eyes on another god, particularly one outside her pantheon. In their short—albeit incredibly sexy—time together, she realizes just how much she needs the companionship of one of her own. Loki, however, seems more interested in catching a murderous maenad than swapping stories about the old days.

Can she convince Loki to stay and make her life a little less lonely, or will he persuade her to join him on his quest for more worshipers? His questionable tactics make her uneasy, but how can she turn down the opportunity to live as she once did: freely, powerfully, and lustfully as Aphrodite of Olympus.

*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
First off, I love this cover. It's beautiful and enticing. But, I'm not sure it really fits the book. I wasn't sure what I'd be getting into with this story.
I actually enjoyed this short read! I wasn't a fan of Aphrodite. I thought she was shallow and boring. True, Gods and Goddesses were selfish and out for themself, but I didn't like her. Loki, oh man, Loki seemed hot, interesting and I was dying to read more about him!
I love the idea of the Gods going after mythical creatures. I am anxious to read the next book. I don't want to give too much away, since it was a really short read. But this was a surprisingly interesting, highly sexy read! Oh yea, did I mention how hot and sexy it was? Oh yea!!! You should read this!
