Adonis in Athens is what fairytales are made of!
This book was just, *sigh*…dreamy! Intimacy, intrigue, and whimsical romance fill the pages of this second chance love story.
Apollo and Paige’s character dynamic was enchanting and piqued my interest immediately! Their chemistry was a slow burn of attraction with an unknown spark that fueled their passion. Between Apollo’s smoldering good looks, his sickeningly sweet charm, and heartfelt emotions, I fell in love with him quicker than Paige did. And the courage it took Paige to face her “mistakes” showcased her strong characteristics and independence.
But as perfect as they seem to be as a couple, their challenges and setbacks only made it more heartbreaking to read. Stubbornness and reluctance overshadow what both Apollo and Paige clearly already know…that they can’t let the other go. And to read how they’re both willing to give up everything they know for the other person…well, it’s unconditional love.
This book will leave you breathless. The romantic aspects, paired with the scorching-hot desires, weaves a tale of love, passion, and sacrifices. The writing was exceptional, and takes you on a journey with the characters. Adonis in Athens will make you swoon, will make you weep, and will most definitely make you want to take a trip to Greece!
A definite 5 star wistful romance!

Paige Carter’s fling with the dark-haired, green-eyed Greek was short, but it blew her mind. 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?
