*This story contains triggers that might be upsetting to readers.

I am obsessed with all mythologies but specially Norse myths because they are so rarely exposed and I FREAKING LOVE when Loki is the main lead. I know many people equate him with Marvel’s Loki, but his portrayals are so vivid and varying, that I fall in love with it every time.

This book was so so delicious and easy flowing. At the same time, it also showed what isolation and loneliness does to a person. I love that Evie handle this with such tact and grace.

I love Nora so much. My girl might not be entirely fearless, but she was close. I can’t belive she called out a God on his shit. MULTIPLE TIMES!?! I admire her so so much. I have read a character like hers in a long time and I was just grinning like a fool at my babe living her life and doing amazing things.

Loki, my sweet broken man. It took him so much time to believe that someone could actually love him and that he was capable of love. I adore his character arc. His character actually bloomed and I am so in love with him. I also liked that he was a fool for Nora. *heart eyes*

I am just madly going to read every book that follows this universe because I am beyond obsessed.

4.5 Stars!

to love a god

I spent my whole life training to become a ballet dancer—a soloist, a star. Today, I’m a toy, a plaything, a distraction…

An offering.

A sacrifice to a caged god, to the Norse trickster.


Trapped in a cave for the sins of his past, he waits for the end of days. Modern worshippers curry favor with gifts and trinkets, spilled blood—and women like me.

Women who resemble his long-dead wife. We all have that look, you see. I’m supposed to be flattered that I remind him of a goddess in an age gone by.

Fuck that.

I’m furious.

The ones who came before me were sweet, docile, compliant—just like her. But I’m not sweet. I’m not docile, and I will never be compliant.

I am resilient. I am determined.

I am—not—drawn to him.

I will survive this.

I will survive him.

My name is Nora Olsen, and I will not die here.

To Love a God is a full-length standalone dark paranormal romance novel set in the Lily of the Valley universe. Each book in the series can be read on its own, but characters will occasionally pop up in other stories. No cliffhangers. Always a happy ending—because even villains deserve a happily-ever-after.
