I fell in love with Locey when I saw her story in He Loves me for my Brainssss So, when I saw she had some other books out, I was quick to snap them up I have not been disappointed Her characters are vivid, amusing, and prone to making the same stupid mistakes as normal people however there were no Big Misunderstandings which is a trope in romance books that I find particularly annoying, since if the characters would just have a discussion like the rational, intelligent people they re otherwise portrayed to be Back in college, one of the worst, hardest classes I had was Mythology Who would have thunk it, right But the professor was a nut for the minutest trivia Hercules great aunt on his mother s side, mentioned only once in the text book in a foot note Was on the EXAM Fortunately, this terrible experience did not kill my love of Greek and Roman mythos, and I find myself yelling at various books and movies wh The plot is incredibly clever and the god characters themselves well drawn I enjoyed the snappy self described wise ass commentary for the first two chapters After that, while admiring the cleverness of it, I found it incessant and relentless and annoying in its excess I was relieved to see it taper off a bit toward the end of the book which made it a lot nicer to read I real This was a book I purchased when it first came out and then, for one reason or another, it sat on my computer s hard drive until I downloaded it to my Kindle a few weeks ago And I want to kick myself for waiting so long to read it because it was SO.DARN.GOOD I admittedly had my misgivings Greek gods and goats and I wasn t quite hooked after the first few chapters because I wasn t too sure about the style, but I m glad I stuck with it OF GODS GOATS is singularly one of the most entertaining books I ve read Ever I think I laughed and snorted throughout this book than any other, and who doesn t Oh my Gosh this was so much fun to read I laughed till I cried I always loved mythology but now I am readdicted More Gods please Libby is a widowed Goat farmer She hasn t gotten over her loss of her husband and lost her faith in any God Until one fell through her roof into her life Literally Enter Ares a huge hunk of man that claims to be Ares the Greek God Libby is sure he is on something or just loony but soon she finds out its true Oh my twists and turns and happenings Like I mentioned befor
