Deer in Headlights - Staci Hart Have you ever wondered what the Greek gods would be like if they had to deal with the modern world and how they might act? If you have then Deer in Headlights is definitely one to check out. It’s a fun and quick story with an interesting twist on some really old gods.The gods of Olympus get bored and they enjoy competition, so when it’s Aphrodite’s turn to put up a challenge Apollo jumps at the chance. They have a really deep feud and I really enjoyed getting to see the flashbacks of just how the rift came to be. I loved the way Hart went about giving each god a personality and life stemming from the myths we already know. One of the best things about the Greek gods is how human they were capable of being and I think Hart really capitalized on that feeling, giving them a new more modern life in Olympus. She fleshed out the relationships we only get glimpses at in myths, like Persephone and Hades, and we get to see just how everyone interacts under such close quarters. It’s a great blend of new and old.The story between Lex and Dean is pretty good too and there is plenty of tension as they circle around each other. While it’s not the strongest romance out there it was really enjoyable to see them deal with their attraction and to see how the gods chose to influence their choices.As someone who adores mythology I appreciated all of the work she put into it and I think even those who have little knowledge about Greek mythology can easily settle into this one. It’s quirky and fun, and I think it’s perfect for anyone looking for a lighter paranormal romance.
