{Book Review} Filthy Gods by R. Scarlett

Filthy Gods by R. Scarlett
Published: May 15th, 2018
Series: American Gods #0.5
Source: Received in exchange for an honest review
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance

Young. Wealthy. Elite. Attractive. The gentlemen’s secret society at Yale was filled with them.

And Nathaniel Radcliffe, the bane of my existence, was one of them.

As the right hand of the American Gods, he was conceited and arrogant. A dangerously handsome man in a tailored custom suit and shiny black oxford loafers.

The classroom was our battlefield. We made a sport out of arguing and debating, ready to do anything in order to win over the other.

Deadly opponents, deadlier minds.

I'd sworn I'd never give him the upper hand, until...

The secret I’ve been hiding for the last three years?

He just discovered it… and now he has all the power.

WOW!  It is safe to say that R. Scarlett can write ANYTHING and in ANY genre!  Although this novella was short, it was an absolutely amazing beginning to a series I already know that I am going to love!  The story felt complete (although I really hope that we see more from this couple in the future) and in just a few pages, I was addicted to these characters.  The plot flowed seamlessly and the introduction to the American Gods was really intriguing.  I kept imagining what R. Scarlett will have in store for her readers in the future installments.

I loved Juliette as the main female protagonist.  She was strong, sassy, determined and full of ambition.  Nathaniel, the male protagonist, is any romance readers dream.  He was arrogant and cocky, but was protective and sweet when he was around Juliette. 

The romance in this book was great.  It was pretty speedy, but it had to be considering all of the amazingness crammed into just a few pages.  This romance had a little bit of everything-angst, secrecy, sweet moments and also intense steaminess. 
I would recommend this book to readers who love alpha males and their love interests strong and independent.  I am very excited to get my hands on the next books, especially because I desperately wanted this book to be a full-length novel because it was very hard to say good bye to this couple!


“Watching him and the American Gods lounge under the veranda, white sheer curtains billowing around them, made the four of them seem otherworldly.  Like statues I had studied in Ancient History.  Perfectly symmetric features.  Tall, powerful frames of strength and beauty.  Untouchable.  Perfect specimens that wielded too much power.  Young gods untouchable, invincible, powerful.”

{Book Review} I Do, Babe by Tillie Cole

I Do, Babe by Tillie Cole
Published: April 23, 2017
Series: Hades Hangmen #5
Source: Purchased
Genre: Dark MC Romance


Connected since childhood.
Two souls: one dark and one pure.
Bracing to take the greatest step of all.

River ‘Styx’ Nash loves his woman. Ever since he met Mae at the fence of the cult that had kept her captive as a child, he has never loved anyone else. He loves her black hair, her pale skin and of course, her ice-blue ‘wolf eyes’.

Since Mae came crashing back into his life, his only wish has been to marry her; finally to make her his wife. But now the wedding is booked, and only weeks from forever having Mae by his side, a lifelong problem is plaguing him.
He wants to marry her; he has never wanted anything more . . .
. . . if only he could speak the words and declare it to the world.

Salome ‘Mae’ Nash’s life had been filled with heartache and pain . . . until, at age eight, she met a strange dark-haired boy from the outside world. Years later, and reunited with her great love, Mae is ready to solder her heart to his. Finally, Mae is getting ready to marry her man. But her fiancĂ© has become withdrawn. Something is deeply troubling him.
But Mae has no idea what.
Or what to do to help.

Can Styx open up and conquer his deepest pain? Or will the infamous Hangmen Mute allow his fears to overcome his love for Mae and watch their much-anticipated wedding crumble to dust?

It is no secret that Styx and Mae is my favorite couple from the Hades Hangmen world and when I found out that they were getting a novella, I squealed with happiness!  I loved revisiting these characters, and although I really want another full book focusing on this couple, it was a sweet little companion that gave readers a glimpse into how these two characters were developing further as a couple.

This novella does take place during the end of Damnable Grace, so although it is difficult for those who love Styx and Mae, please read Damnable Grace first so that you don’t spoil anything. 

This book was cute and sweet, which was a nice addition to these books considering that they are usually filled with dark and traumatic events.  This purely focused on the wedding between Styx and Mae.  There were not really any new revelations so I would say it is not an absolute necessity that you read this novella to continue on with the series.  BUT, considering it is so short and sweet, I don’t know why anyone would want to skip it!


“You are marrying Styx.  Even if hell itself ascended and fiery storms tore this compound apart, you would still feel this day perfect.  Because on this day, your heart forever melds with his. Your River.”
