So, uummm…..yeah. Totally not expecting this story….AT ALL! But man, was it good!
Richer Than God is a dark, contemporary, romantic suspense that’s one-part twisted eroticism, and one-part emotional romance. Okay, so maybe it leans more toward the twisted aspects than the swoony, heartfelt elements in the story. But regardless, this book is filthy-HOT!
Zeus is the owner of Olympus, an exclusive and opulent whorehouse, and is a rich, self-serving, and controlling alpha male. God love him, he controls not only his business but everyone around him. His arrogance and authority exude from his person like a deliciously naughty aroma that leaves you captivated. Don’t get me wrong, the man is cold-blooded. He let go of all emotion years ago, leaving him a man that is as cruel as he is gorgeous…which makes him a very intimidating and dangerous man. But when he meets Brigit, you begin to wonder if maybe there is still a chance for him, that maybe he isn’t as heartless as he claims to me.
Completely different that any of the girls he has met before, Brigit only sought out Olympus for one reason. One very desperate reason. Having run from her father, Brigit needs a “safe” place to hid out, while earning enough money to build a new life for herself. But upon entering Olympus and meeting Zeus, she begins to realize that she is anything but safe, especially the attraction and chemistry between her and Zeus threatens her heart.
My goodness, this book was excellent! With every page I turned, I thought I knew where the story was headed. But I was proved wrong each and every time. The suspense, the sexy and intense moments, and the emotions the story line exhibits gave me whiplash. I loved the connection between Zeus and Brigit. Being such a young and naïve woman, you would like that Zeus’ darkness would immediately consume her. But what Zeus didn’t expect was for Brigit to welcome his darkness with her own desires, and for her tender spirit and compassion to start bleeding into his cold, vicious soul.
If you love dirty, filthy, and naughty romances, then I highly recommend this book. But I will warn you now: it ends on a cliffhanger. Don’t like those? Then wait for the trilogy to be complete because you do not want to miss this epic romance!
