Deer in Headlights by Staci Hart Review, Blog Hop, and GIVEAWAY!!!!
DIH is a light, fun read that will keep you laughing, tug at your heartstrings, and maybe make you change your panties. It’s steamy and sweary, a lighthearted romance with a Greek mythology twist.
What do the Greek gods do when they’re bored? Because they’re always bored, so humans are the perfect players in their games.
Aphrodite owns love; she hasn’t lost a competition on her turf in over three millennia. Apollo is on a mission to win. He’s counting on it to finally get the one woman he’s never been able to have. The two gods will choose their human players, and if Aphrodite can’t get them together before the clock runs out, Apollo will get his way. And Aphrodite couldn’t have that.
Lex and Dean are perfect for each other, they just don’t know it yet. Dean is a perpetual bachelor, and a brooding, beautiful rock star. Lex is always with a man, but she’ll never fully give herself up. Aphrodite has her work cut out for her, but if she can’t make it work, no one can.
The gods have their own drama. Apollo killed Aprhodite’s mortal love – they’ve got beef that’s been dragging on for thousands of years. Ares, the douchebag, is forever trying to pick a fight, and trying to get Aphrodite into bed. And Persephone, Aphrodite’s best friend, is the one person who Aphrodite shares everything with.
Follow the gods as they fight, laugh, cry, lose love, gain power, and make a mess with humans.
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom; she has three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife; even though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f, ends with k, and there a uc in there.
From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics. But let’s be honest, she’s mostly writing.
Let me start first by saying…GOOD GODS!!! I had to, I’m sorry. LOL. I took Greek Mythology when I was in high school and I LOVED it!! How fun is it to read about Gods and Goddesses and cool powers they had? Well..I thought it was fun 🙂
This book was really fun to read and I loved that I could relate with the characters. Yes, even though they were Gods and such, but still. The author made them very likable and unique and the story itself was unique. I can’t say I have EVER read a book like this one.
Like I said, I took GM in HS and so having the background history was like me having a refresher course. I loved that it stayed true to form and for me that is very important. There is nothing I hate more than the facts not being straight, yet there were some new attributes added that I enjoyed.
Like I said earlier this story was very unique. We all know that the Gods and such idea is pretty overused at times but there was a fresh spin on the plot of this book that made it a very fun read. I read the book fairly quickly (and being that I don’t always have a lot of time was very much appreciated). The writing was very well done and the story flowed nicely. This was a very fast-paced book which I always enjoy. I’m telling you, there is nothing I can’t stomach more than when the author just doesn’t GET TO THE POINT!!
This book got a 4 out of 5 stars from me. I would definitely say that if you are looking for your next read, the buy links are in this post. Very fun, very fast-paced, very good all around. Definitely a must-read for anyone who likes romance and fantasy.
