Review by Wisteria

Long ago, mortals worshipped the deities of Olympus , which in turn gave them purpose. Often the immortals mingled with those who pleased them, taking lovers where they wished, but rarely allowing their lives to be affected by them.

In the modern age, with mortals believing in them less and less, quite a few of the Olympians have withdrawn, ignoring the mortal realm completely. Some live partially among the mortals, but return often to Olympus . A select few found themselves fascinated with the mortal world, and chose to completely live among mortals, some even finding love.

Worshiped: Pothos (God of Passion), Himeros (God of Sexual Desire) and the mortal Alicia.

A Wish and a Threesome: Nike, Athena, and the mortal Chris.

At the request of the Goddess Athena, mortals Alicia and Chris are invited to partake in a weekend of fantasies with the Gods of Olympus. Alicia is recovering from an abusive relationship and needs to learn to trust herself and Chris is wanted for a whole different set of reasons.

A sexy, spicy read that pushes the imagination and explores the powers of the Gods. Ms Houston created a vivid picture of hot bodies, delectable fantasies, sexual wonder and fulfillment. Editing only missed a couple of small words but the writing was very good. The vividness of the descriptions easily painted the picture in my imagination and made the story very easy to enjoy.

I would recommend this anthology to anyone who is looking for a short spicy read. A definite keeper and one that would encourage me to seek out other works by the author.
