Passion doesn’t always follow the rules of fate…

Ambrosia has spent her life preparing for the day she would avenge her mother's death. Working undercover as a prostitute, she draws in the man who took her mother's life. Not realizing who Ambrosia is, the man admits to her that her mother is still alive – and he's on a quest to finish what he started twenty-three years ago. Desperate to find the mother she's never met, Ambrosia convinces him to let her help. It’s a partnership of necessity, and founded in deception – but slowly Ambrosia is faced with an uncomfortable truth: this man is not the monster Ambrosia has always envisioned him to be – and worse yet, and she finds herself drawn to him…craving his touch. How can she reconcile these intense feelings for the man who has shattered her life?

The first novel in the exciting new Beyond the Gods series from author Mary Bernsen, Nectar of the Gods is a fantasy romance steeped in Greek Mythology; full of passion that will leave you breathless.

My Review:

Ambrosia has spent her life looking for the man who killed her mother so she can have her revenge. She plans to kill the man who murdered her mother, Medusa. She decides to go undercover as a prostitute hoping that it will bring her closer to her mother’s murder.

Perseus shows up at the brothel where she is working one day and tells Ambrosia that Medusa is still alive and that he is going to find her and finish what he started twenty-three years ago. Ambrosia talks Perseus into letting her go with him. But of course, Perseus has no idea that Medusa is her mother.

Ambrosia starts to have feelings for Perseus. This kind of scares her as she is afraid that he will not love her back as she has never had anyone to love her in her whole life. She thinks that she is not worthy of anyone’s love not especially with her being a prostitute. Perseus starts to fall for Ambrosia too but he has some things in his past that he is letting get his way of loving anyone.

When I read the summary for Nectar of the Gods I thought I got to read this one as I love reading about Gods and Goddess and mythology especially Greek mythology. Once I started reading it I didn’t want to put it down. I liked following along with Ambrosia and Perseus on their journey together looking for Medusa, experiencing and seeing all the things they saw.

I would like to recommend Nectar of the Gods to anyone who loves reading about Greed mythology and Gods and Goddess.
