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.
This fast paced, light-hearted, sexy modern romance is a perfect summer read!
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
About the Author
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. Just saying.
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
( I Received this book by the tour organizer for a review, I'm not a paid reviewer and these thoughts are my own)
So you know when people say do not judge a book by it's cover? Well in this case I will say do not judge a book by its title ( not that it's a bad title) I had a different story in mind going into this book because of the title. I hadn't read the synopsis until a little after I started Deer in Headlights. I however found Deer in Headlights to be Fun and Charming. I loved every second of it. That is why we should never base a book on it's cover/title it might just surprise you.
I'm going to be very honest here at the beginning of Deer in Headlights I was a deer in a headlight a little confused. Staci Hart has change the Greek Gods names a little, like nicknames per-say ( which is a really great idea, making the story unique and her own) I however found this part just a little confusing at first. she would go back and forth sometime of the nickname or the real name. By the end of the story though I had figured it all out and was a lot less confused.
I really love to Duel story aspect Staci has done with this story. I really loved Dean and Lux's relationship ( Staci you should think about writing a novella of more of Dean and Lux's story :D I would totally read that one!) In Deer in Headlights we follow along as the Greek Gods place bets ( Since they are so bored, all they can do is bet each other..silly Gods) and try to win as they mess with the human life's of Dean and Lux. I LOVE the Love in this story, lots of great scene that will have you sighing, smiling and melting.
All in all this was a GREAT read ( aside from my early confusion, which didn't affect my judgment) I CANNOT wait for book number #2 ( snakes in the glass) I recommend this book to New Adult/ Adult readers who want to read a fun book. I laughed, I Sighed, I Swooned, and I really enjoyed DEER IN HEADLIGHTS!
