Paige Carter's fling with the dark-haired, green-eyed Greek was short, but it rocked her world. Her only regret was not finding out whether she'd ever see him again before he returned to Greece. 

 Apollo Lakkas earned his degree and was thrilled to return to Greece to begin work with his family's shipping business. His only regret is the way he left the sweet blonde he met in Vegas—who may or may not be his wife. 

When an unexpected proposal throws Paige into a panic, she packs a bag for Athens and does the one thing she knows she must do before she can face any kind of future...reconcile her past. 

 The moment their eyes meet once again, Paige and Apollo feel the same spark that ignited them down the aisle. Will they be able to plan a future together or is their love destined to be nothing but a bittersweet memory?


My Review

This had a very different feel the the 'Inferno' series of books, but was still a very well written, captivating and worth the money read. It is written in the third person, has a whole cast of interesting characters, the plot is nicely unique and we still have a link to the sidewinders!

Adonis in Athens has a 'lighter' feel to it. It's a lovely summery beach read but NOT a trashy, disposable read. Apollo and Paige are as well written as any character in a Kat Mizera novel, they are believable, have their foibles but are likeable and really do fit the category of 'hero' and 'heroine'. 

I definitely felt the chemistry between them and believed in their love, particularly from Paige, whom I felt we got to know a little more than Apollo in this book. 

The first part of the book, set in Athens, certainly had a much more relaxed feel to it. Once Paige returned to Vegas the story and action certainly seemed to pick up pace. This may well have been a deliberate writing trope by the author to emphasise the difference in cultures. 

I did feel that some things were a little rushed, particularly the explanation of the conversation Paige overheard between Apollo and Mike, or not really resolved. I do get the feeling that some of these lose ends will be picked up by later books in the series. 

I also felt that we didn't get to experience some of the tougher conversations between Paige and Apollo. It was acknowledged that they both had a lot to think about and sort through in order to be together, but then a lot of the actual doing of this seemed to happen 'in the background'.

However those are very minor points and certainly did not spoil my enjoyment of what is an extremely well written, captivating and uplifting romance.

About the Author:

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favourite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast. Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – travelling. Greece is one of her favourite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach. Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles. As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favourite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
