Hotter Than Hades by Serena AkeroydHotter than Hades is basically Ms. Akeroyd having fun with Greek Mythology whilst weaving the tales into modern time, and giving them a reverse harem spin. What sets this story apart is the fact that her characters arent the favoured ones. We only meet Zeus briefly, Posseidon is only mentioned and Afrodite doesnt have a place at all. Instead we meet Hades, Icarus and Orpheus. Cressida is a young, gorgeous pop star with world wide popularity. She should think of the world as her oyster and maybe she would, if it wasnt because she has experienced date rape which her record company swiped under the rug. Betrayed by those she thought would protect her, shes shielding herself from everyone except her foster-sister Ella. When Ella dies Cressidas world is turned upside down and shes taken for the ride of her life when shes introduced to the Lord of the Underworld, a demigod and the legendary guy who flew too close to the sun.
The plot it self felt extremely flat. It was 80% about a rape that had happened before the story starts, and I felt like the author spent way too much time on the trauma of it. Ill admit the fact that there was rape involved did make me dislike the book a lot, because I dont enjoy that topic in my romance. But it can still work when an author uses it for good, unfortunately that wasnt the case here. Most of the narrative is describing things, instead of experiencing them. So it felt more like someone telling the story after everything had been done and said, not like it happened as we hear about it.The guys had so much potential, but half the time I struggled to tell Icarus and Orpheus apart. Their brooding personalities were too alike. With only three guys in the harem, thats not a good thing!! The sex felt like the author just needed to cross it off her list, so it didnt flow at all!!
I dont know if Ill reading the rest of the series, but its definitely not something Ill go out of my way for !!
My Boyfriend Is Hotter Than Me
There will always be someone better looking than you, smarter than you, more popular. I mean, congrats to you on snatching yourself up a good one. There are a lot of things that could be going through your head when you feel this way, but in relationships where the man is better looking than the woman, you may be thinking the following:. Either that, or you figure his personality must be heavily flawed, or some other area apart from his physique. Naturally, all of your insecurities start surfacing one by one.

It is not just the fellas that are punching above their weight when it comes to dating. There are women who just have it going on when it comes to their game, and it has absolutely nothing to do with their looks. Sure, they might be attractive on an average level, but their boyfriends are out of their league in the looks department. It makes us all non-celebrity women flustered with envy when we see a celebrity woman with a stud. It makes us feel like we should have a chance with him even though we will probably never meet him in real life.

As far as I'm concerned, the "hot dude dating average girl" phenomenon is way more common in pop culture than in life. This article about it got me thinking. For the record, even in the following TV examples, both of the following women are somewhat "uglied up" for contrast in the first place:. There's that Sex And The City episode with Miranda and her handsome date, during which she feels so paranoid and self-conscious being seen with such a good-looking guy in a restaurant that she drinks too much and he dumps her under the impression she's an alcoholic. Remember that?
