Book Description

March 1 2009
Against his will, Sam Dewey, the God of Sex, is becoming famous, attending film festivals and award shows with the big time players. But it's his master Hector, the God of Love, who has the hardest time accepting it. When heart-throb movie star Harris Smith innocently kisses Sam for the cameras at a premiere, Hector goes into a jealous rage and humiliates Sam in front of Hollywood's power elite. It isn't the first time Hector's done that, but Sam swears it will be the last. After Sam leaves him, Hector is finally forced to face the problems that drove them apart. Is it too late to change, or can Hector combat his personal demons and win Sam back? With a cast of characters that includes a return of the Goddesses of Traffic and the Deal, Alberto, the new God of Fame, as well as Ophir and his boys, this sequel to Chaos Magic and Love Runes is sure to delight fans of the series and newcomers alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars A satisfying conclusion March 19 2010
By Charly T. Anchor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 8/10

PROS:
- I'm pretty satisfied with the story's ending. Sam and Hector each go through a good amount of growth in the series, especially in this volume, and I liked them together in the end (I had my doubts while reading Chaos Magic and Love Runes--and parts of this book).
- The setting and story have been interesting all along, but I think the details and the story elements in this book are really neat. Sam is a film critic who becomes famous in this volume, so he frequents film festivals and fancy restaurants and elite clubs. Lygon does an excellent job of creating a well-rounded picture of that world: not just its flashiness and intrigue, but also its shallow, backstabbing side.
- There's a secondary character who figures in to the first and second books in pretty minor ways and becomes a little more important in this volume. I love him. I'm so interested in him, in fact, that I wish Lygon would publish the various e-stories about this character and his boy(s) in a paperback anthology. I would snap it up in a heartbeat.
- I've read a number of BDSM romances, and I've always enjoyed the ones where the couple doesn't engage in much erotic pain over the ones in which the sub is a masochist. This is one of the first I've read where the couple focuses quite a bit on pain and I wasn't totally turned off by the discipline and/or sex scenes.
- There's a scene at a leather party that is priceless. After reading it (twice), I pumped my fist in the air and said, "Take THAT!" because of some of the things Sam says to another character.

CONS:
- Hector just isn't one of my favorite Doms. He does some terrible things--namely, in this book, humiliating Sam on a number of occasions. I agree that that behavior is forgivable. The problem, I think, is that because these books are told in first person from Sam's point of view, I never got to see Hector REALLY thinking about his actions and contemplating the changes he needed to make to start treating Sam with more respect. (I must say, though, that during the period of separation, I found myself wishing quite fervently that the two men would get back together, if only because Sam is so miserable while they're apart.)
- I harp some in my reviews on poor copy editing. This series doesn't have near the problem that a lot of books in this genre have with punctuation and spelling issues. There were a few things in this book, though, that drove me a little batty. One of them is the spelling of a character's name two different ways: "Josef" toward the beginning of the book and "Joseph" starting about halfway through.

Overall comments: Lygon's a good writer, and I enjoyed reading this series because the characters are interesting and the stories entertaining. This isn't my favorite BDSM series because I don't like Hector as much as some other m/m Doms, but I certainly think these books are worth a read. I wouldn't recommend reading any one of the books in isolation, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hectors View ? Nov. 8 2011
By Karin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I`d really would like the whole story from Hector`s view. I love this series (all of the stories about Hector and Sam I could my hands on) and I think even if Hector is seen as sometimes cruel, he is still just a man and he seems to be exactly the man Sam wants and loves.
4.0 out of 5 stars Sam, finally June 17 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Even if this book didn't wow me as the first book in the series, I liked Sam's character arc. From the young, insecure man who didn't want to grow up, he really fights for himself in this last book. He doesn't let Hector get away with his jealousy, but he makes him work to get back to him. It's not an easy road to travel and he has his up-and-downs, but in the end he holds on to his core.

I didn't have much faith in Hector, but he's able to redeem himself. The entourage of secondary god-characters was as entertaining as always and I wished the author had played a little bit more with them.

Kudos to the author for the nice and not stereotyped images of Venice and il Lido during the film festival.
