Review: Soft Marble by Megan Slayer

One touch from his lover and this marble statue will come to life.


Kratos, god of power and strength, has been imprisoned in pure white marble for more than two millennia. His lover can break the spell-if only his lover would find him.

Andy Green knows his ancient artifacts. He spends his days restoring works of art. When the sculpture of Kratos enters his studio, he can't hide his attraction. What he doesn't expect is for the sculpture to come to life-or for it to have the same fantasies of them in bed together.

But when it comes time to decide whether this is lust or love, Andy isn't sure he's the man to keep Kratos mortal for good.

An interesting concept, art restoration student Andy has been tasked with cleaning a marble statue from the Ancient Greeks.  The statue of Kratos, god of strength, is everything that Andy would desire in a partner, even though his confidence is at a low ebb.  One night, his imagination and obsession with the statue take over, and he is caressing as one would a lover…when the statue comes to life.

Kratos was cursed to marble by his father for his choice in a man his father did not believe loved him for himself, but for his godly powers.  He grants Kratos 2 days to have Andy fall in love with him, or be returned to stone.

Rather clever twists made this story fun to read for a diversion, and the sexual tension and Andy’s nod to submission are steamy and hot. Quick reading with a satisfying conclusion that shows a happy ever after ending, this hot novella will bring a smile to your face.
