Born into one of the wealthiest families in Ireland, Siobhan Law has status, privilege, and a secret: The Greek gods of Olympus and their kingdom in the clouds are real, and her family acts as one of their agents on Earth.

When the beautiful immortal celeste Liam Argyros shows up claiming to have come to Earth to deal in the affairs of the divine, Siobhan finds herself unable to resist his charms. New to the game of passion and seduction, she quickly ends up in over her head, sinking deeper with every attempt Liam makes to win her over.

But Liam’s divine mission is far more complex than she ever imagined and nothing is truly as it seems. Because Liam has a secret of his own: He is Apollo, Olympian god of the Sun, and his mission will never be complete until he has claimed Siobhan’s heart forever.





I can't get enough of this world. I just can't! If it wasn't obvious before, it's damn obvious  now. Any book in this world, whether it be Oracle of Delphi, Mythos or this one, Mythos: Gods & Lovers; it's obsolutely amazing. I love them and they are by far my favorite books about Greek mythology!

Also, this book has an unconventional romance. I love unconventional romances and I feel even if I hadn't read the Oracle books I would have loved it anyway. But I have read the Oracle books and am so glad to know how everything happened and to understand both Apollo, Siobhan and the world in these books more.


Liam's gaze did several things at once: Undressed me, teased me, excited me, then scorched me from the inside out.

Starting Lover, Divine I didn't really know if I was going to like it. I hoped I would. I mean, I love Apollo and just about anything Diantha writes but still, you never know, right? And I probably shouldn't have doubted that it would be so good but I'm so glad my expectations were more than exceeded. I couldn't take my eyes off my Kindle when I was reading it. I think I only picked it up twice before I finished it. This came as a surprise because I was kind of in a reading funk (gotta hate those!) and this book totally cured me from it. Thanks, Diantha!

"Do you feel it here, Siobhan?" Liam said, causing my conscious thoughts to go blank. His hand was over his heart.
I fidgeted. "Feel wha' there?"
"The nothingness. Like you've finally lost your heart to the only one who was ever meant to find it."

So... the story... it was fantastic! I was so glad when Diantha decided to write this story about Siobhan and Apollo. Gods know I love Apollo but I never knew quite what to think about Siobhan in the Oracle of Delphi series so this story did help me get to know her and her past better. I loved that. She and Apollo definitely had a lot of chemistry going on. I loved the way he was with her and also the way she was with him. They were great together. Another thing I loved was how she didn't give in to Apollo right away. That must've been a surprise to him, huh? 
And I just have to say that the romance scenes were so hot! I loved them. That Apollo, just daaaamn! 

"The only instrument I want to play now is you. Like my lyre, plucking all the right strings to make you sing."

Aside from Siobhan and Apollo, I also just loved Siobhan's friend Vicky. She was a riot! I laughed out loud with her a few times. I must say I wasn't a fan of Sioban's parents but thought it was funny how her mother reacted everytime with Apollo around. There was also Siobhan's older brother and his fiancee, Melissa. You will NOT see the twist coming there. I sure didn't and was so surprised. My mouth literally fell open when I realized who Melissa really is. That is all I will say! 
And Chloe was mentioned!!! Sorry if this is a spoiler to some people but I can't not fangirl over that fact! Also how cute were baby Strafford and Isolde! Cute in a feisty way, of course. And aw, Strafford and little Ace. Adorable! I couldn't help but smile at those scenes.

This is a love story unlike any other. At least, unlike any other I've ever read.

Surprising, funny, sexy, amazing... there aren't enough words to sum up Lover, Divine. It was well, divine to read. I loved it with all my heart and I just can't wait for any of the next books in this world. Diantha did a fabulous job like always!
