An ancient grudge. A forbidden love.
The only thing worse than being a demon is being a Valari. As an undergraduate at Los Angeles’s Alameda University, Kara Valari can sometimes succeed at forgetting she’s both. Lost between the pages of the classics and tucked into the shadows of lecture halls, she can dodge the paparazzi’s lenses as well as her family’s publicized dramas—not to mention their private expectations. She has one more year to feed her true passions. Then she’ll be expected to fulfill a much darker destiny.
Cursed with inexplicable strength and godlike stature, literature professor Maximus Kane knows all about darkness. Every day he’s reminded of the missteps of his childhood and the devastating consequences they’ve had on those dearest to him. To atone, Maximus spends his nights alone and his days submerged in the quiet life of academia. His existence has become a study in control, and he’s become a master at it—until Kara Valari walks into his toughest course.
Viscerally, Kara’s everything he craves. Logically, she’s everything he rejects. She’s a starlet of privilege. She’s also a student. And after one touch, he can’t deny that she’s awakened something in him that may never go dormant. Nothing about her makes sense, but everything about her feels right. Especially in the deepest strands of his DNA, which are still shadows of mystery to him—a mystery Kara seems determined to uncover.
She’s Hollywood royalty. She’s forbidden fruit. And he’s pretty sure she could be the answer to everything.
Review by Julie
For the love of a god!
If you like Mythological romance, then this book is definitely for you. This isn’t your usual professor/student romance, it is so much more.
Kara Valari is the quiet academic of LA’s biggest socialite family, who likes nothing more than to be lost in a book, whilst avoiding her family drama and ultimately her destiny.
Then along come Professor Maximus Kane, huge, immensely strong, sexy and avoiding all things romantic. That is until Kara, the forbidden fruit arrives in his class.
This book is so well written, I was drawn into their world immediately after reading the first word and felt like I was intruding on their journey. Their chemistry is booming like Thunder and as bright as lightning and you feel it all for them.
“Maximus…” she rasps, ending it with a lilt that almost seems a question. One born in desperation.
“What?” I murmur. “What is it?”
“Tell me I am not the only one feeling this. Please… tell me”
I emulate her swallow as she splays her hand along the side of my throat.
“I knew it” she whispers
There is more to Maximus and Kara than meets the eye, can Maximus save Kara from her fate?? I need book 2 more than I need my own breath please don’t make us wait too long.
This book ends on a cliffhanger so big you won’t want to jump off!
