Synopsis
    Did you just see a flash of lightning across the sky on a clear sunny day? It’s not from Mother Nature. It is most likely from Mason Grand, swoon-worthy demigod, one of Zeus’s descendants. 

Skylar Rome is supposed to be having the best summer ever before she heads off to college. Little did she know, her whole life was about to change while visiting her cousin. Nearly drowning at the beach due to unknown forces, one of the Grand brothers she’d just met, Mason, saves her life. Cool, collected, mysterious, and dangerously good-looking, Skylar is drawn to him from the start. Though she knows he is the type of guy good girls stayed away from, it seems he is always saving her life, and the attraction was inevitable. Upon meeting the brothers, strange things begin to happen. When she accidentally kills one of the brothers, it throws her life into turmoil, as they search to find the answers. Implausibly, she gets caught up in a world of the decedents of ancient gods, all who have super powers. Not only is her discovery difficult to accept, evil beings are after her. Running out of time and running for her life, she must unravel a mystery. What do they want from her? Forced into a battle set into motion long before she was born, will she find the answers, or will she die trying?

4 out of 5 (really liked it)

I received this book from Once Upon An Alpha in return for a fair and honest review.

Who is Skylar Rome? She thinks she is a 'normal' eighteen-year-old about to spend some quality summer fun time with her best friend and cousin, Kayla. Instead, she finds herself immersed in stories straight out of legend, danger at every turn and not knowing who to trust. Of course, it doesn't help that the guy she feels attracted to seems to carry some serious baggage around with him as well as having a major chip on his shoulder. And his brothers don't seem any better. So what's a girl to do?

This is a well written and fast-paced story with some basis in Greek legends although you don't need to know your history to enjoy it. There are some lines in this that will make your heart melt and at other times you want to smack someone upside the head because he's being so stupid - mentioning no names, trust me, you'll figure it out!

I loved finding out about Skylar and who she is (although you still don't know half of it, I'm sure!) as well as learning more about the brothers and cousins. 

Definitely recommended for all fans of Paranormal Romance, Greek mythology and (I have to say it, I'm sorry!!!) Percy Jackson.
