Title: Ares' Temptation
At the wedding of two Greek gods, Kaye Underhill is the only mortal in a sea of scantily clad nymphs and fickle satyrs. And worse — she’s dateless. The only bright side is the hot, muscled hunkiness of the God of War, who’s seated next to her. But there’s no way Kaye could ever grab a god’s attention... Is there?
Ares is in big trouble. A vengeful witch curses him, and the first person he touches will steal his strengths, while he receives their weaknesses. When Kaye trips, Ares catches her and poof! His powers disappear, and Kaye suddenly has the strength and coordination of a Greek god. To break the curse and regain his powers, Ares must get Kaye to fall in love with him.
But for the god who makes war, making love presents a whole new set of problems.

There is such a cute premise happening here. The God of War Ares has pissed off a certain witch. What better way to bring him to his knees than to take away his powers? Hekate has cursed Ares in retaliation for beheading her brother. The witch feels that eye for an eye is too much, overdone, and it simply doesn’t fit her end goals. She’s even kind enough to tell him exactly how to rid himself of the curse.
Dateless (as always) at her best friend’s wedding and the only mortal in the building Kaye is determind to have a good time even though she is sitting next to the most arrogant (and hottest) man (God) in the building. Mr. tall handsome perfect on two legs can’t even be bothered to converse with the clumsy ugly duckling. Kaye lets it roll of her shoulders. This is something she is used to. It has been the norm her whole life starting with her family.
There is so much going on here that should have been a huge win for me. Sadly it never worked into a total win. There were many aspects that I enjoyed. I loved the twist of mythology. Mythological characters have always fascinated me. The fact that after being the only mortal at a wedding Kaye unknowingly had Ares attend her family reunion as the only immortal gave me a giggle. The witch turned out to be more match maker than angry sister hell bent on revenge. Kaye’s family was a little too much and grated on every nerve I had. Kaye and Ares have the sweet beginnings of a romance that moved a little fast to the forever with the short time they had together.
