“For someone so determined to be labelled a monster, he’s incredibly invested in my pleasure and consent.”
Persephone finds herself forcefully engaged to Zeus, but she isn’t interested. When fleeing she finds a forbidden underground city and she makes a bargain with a man she believes was a myth. This is a kinky Hades and Persephone retelling.
I’ve enjoyed many of Kattee Robert’s other retellings so was looking forward to reading this one. This was an easy and kinky read that does justice to the BDSM community. I enjoyed the contemporary twist to the classic story and really appreciate that the Hades and Persephone age gap was removed.
Hades is the hot antagonist, not the antagonist that I wanted him to be. I love dominating men that also worship their women like gods, it’s just so hot. I enjoyed Persephone’s character is of course a personification of spring but also a total badass. The chemistry was great and I enjoyed watching them interact with each other. hehe.
