Review: Venus Envy by E.M. Lynley

When Sancus, the Roman God of Loyalty, finally meets a mortal with whom he desires a real relationship, he can’t pursue Aurelio because he’s under a curse...or is he?

Sancus, Roman God of Loyalty and Honesty, snubs an advance from Venus. Furious, the Goddess of Love convinces Cupid to cast a curse on him, causing Sancus to be attracted to every hot guy he meets. In fact, he can't say no.

During a week of almost non-stop arousal and sex Sancus meets Aurelio, a mortal that he desperately wants to see again, but until the curse is lifted he fears ruining any chance for a real relationship. The only way to end the curse is for Sancus to untangle the finely-woven threads and discover it's actually a love spell…

A clever twist on a “blessing” from the gods, Sancus has rebuffed the advances of Venus and cursed by Cupid to have “insta-attraction” for every hot man he meets.  Not really a problem for Sancus until he encounters a super-hot mortal that he would love to meet again.

Sancus is the mediator between most of the gods disputes: anyone who has read their stories understands that the gods are horribly petty and jealous, and they are perpetually horny.  While under normal circumstances Sancus would be able to talk his way out of Venus’ wrath, this time it fails. He can’t be with his female love, but any man is fair game.  While this bothers his essential nature of loyalty and honesty, he also found a man that he would consider a relationship with, but only if he can remove the curse that threatens his loyalty and honesty.

Super steamy sex scenes, clever introductions of the lesser-utilized Roman Gods in fiction, this was a story that had a bit of everything: a mystery to unravel the spell, the potential of a new relationship and pop culture are wound together. E M Lynley has managed to interject emotions and humor into a wickedly clever and sexy tale, and make a story that could easily be trite into a fun romp with a twist of myth.

I received an eBook from the publisher for purpose of honest review for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
