Being the son of Aphrodite isn’t a walk in the clouds. Rebelling against his demi-god status, billionaire make-up mogul Toraos Stephanos fights to separate his personal life and the immortal world by swearing off demi-god girlfriends forever. Too bad his newest employee can't take the hint.
Though Nikki secretly pines for her smoking hot boss, no way will she jeopardize her job and independence professing her love to a guy so clearly out of her league. Too bad that leaves her with only imagining him naked and thinking evil thoughts about the new girl. After a single bottle of Ambrosia and one night of passion... Nikki finally thinks she has a chance with the man of her dreams. But the next morning, Tor pretends like nothing happened, leaving Nikki with an emerging drive for combat—after all, turns out she is the daughter of Ares and she's about to make her mama proud.
All is fair in love and war... and Nikki's not about to let anyone forget it.

 

First Thoughts:
Brux writes a humorous romance with Greek mythology mixed in a Sexy and the City with Greek Gods and Goddess style.

 

The Story:
Nikki is an executive administrative assistant to the uber sexy billionaire of a New York City based cosmetic company,Tor. Nikki has had a crush on Tor for the last 6 years and Tor has no clue. But Tor is not the only one that’s clueless. Everyone but Nikki knows she is a demi-goddess until one day she comes into her powers and all hell breaks loose in a funny way. Nikki’s the daughter of Ares the God of War so I wouldn’t piss her off.

 

The Characters:
Nikki is a likable character. I found myself rooting for her and thinking if I was a demi-goddess living in NYC I would want her as my best friend.

Tor is your typical rich, good looking and clueless guy. He’s all work and no play, especially when it comes to relationships with demi-goddesses. He wants nothing to do with that world even though he is a demi-god himself.

 

The Smexy:
Boone Brux brings heat to the pages in Suddenly Beautiful. There’s hot elevator sex and office quickies.

 

Final Thoughts:
Fast fun and sexy read. I hope that Brux decides to revision this world and give us a book on Nikki’s sassy Latina friend, Stacey.

My name is Jennifer (not Jen!) and I live in the South. I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two cats. I'm finishing my BA in English this Spring (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not touch anything labeled "classic" but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my courses. While I hated to read growing up I am now avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction with my favorite (at least to date) genres include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly paranormal from authors I read in the adult genre but I'm explaining after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in my college courses).
