Their power gives them strength…and makes them targets.
Quinn Caldwell is the epitome of a modern goddess. Her power source is the moon, her abilities restricted only by physical resources and lunar phase. She runs a consulting business and her father’s bar, serves on the board of the ancient Society for Goddess Education and Defense, and yearns for Nick Jarrett, professional goddess protector and the soul mate she can never have.
But someone has developed the rare and difficult ability to drain a goddess of her powers, and Quinn is a target. With the world thinking Nick has gone rogue (whatever that means) and that Quinn is influenced by “family ties” she didn’t know she had, keeping themselves safe while working to find the enemy proves harder each day.
But not as hard as denying their hearts…
I haven't read to many books about Goddesses but the ones I have read have been pretty interesting. This one is a bit steamier than any of the other books I have encountered with Goddesses in them. Quinn is a Goddess and her powers always have her craving sex. Quinn, has a friend Sam that she would use to recharge her powers, now she has decided not to use him any more. She feels its not fair to lead him on in this way, as she is not in love with him, she is in love with Nick, her protector, though Nick will not get involved with her.
Personal feelings are put to the side as the two men must protect Quinn from a leech, someone who is going around stealing Goddess powers. The council will not tell them anything as they think somehow Quinn is involved because of a family member, but Quinn doesn't even know of any family members. There is someone trying to tell everyone that Nick has gone Rogue, and nobody will give them any real answers.
Quinn, was an interesting character, but she wasn't my favorite character. She was strong, but I just didn't like her that much. I guess its probably because I liked Sam and didn't like the way she had treated him as an object for sex when she needed it. She messed with his feelings even though she didn't mean too. Even though she was doing her best to not cave into her cravings because she realized she wasn't being fair, you could already tell it had took its toll on Sam.
Nick has that sexy bad boy image going on with the motorcycle and protectorate attitude, so you can't help but like him a little. He would do about anything to protect Quinn, and hung around a lot more than he probably needed. He has other charges to take care of but something always pulled him Quinn's way.
Normally I like the bad boy image guys but this time I fell for the nice guy. Sam was my favorite character, he was sweet and protective. He fell in love with Quinn even though he knew she didn't feel the same way about him. He put aside his disdain for Nick to help protect her from the leech that was out to get her powers. I do hope he gets a girl of his own in the next book in the series, as he deserves one.
My only draw back with this book is I have never really been a fan of a sex driven storyline especially when I feel that sometimes it takes over the whole story. Over all I thought it was a interesting novel and I liked it enough to continue with the series. If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy then I would recommend you give it a try.
