Review: Sweet Hell by Rosanna Leo

Title: Sweet Hell
Series: Not technically, but there are other God books, like For The Love Of A God
Author: Rosanna Leo
Published: July 2012, Liquid Silver Books
Format: Ebook provided for review

Dionysus, Greek god of wine and theater, is the world’s original playboy. But lately, he has been restless, moody, and he knows something is wrong. His carefree and bacchanal lifestyle is starting to feel like one long string of meaningless, sexual escapades. Even worse, he is suddenly aroused by the idea of marriage. And to top it all off, Josie Marino, the mouthy, disheveled, and eternally annoying woman who serves him coffee at the local bakery, sets him on fire.

Josie, a Toronto baker of Italian heritage, is not looking for love or lust. Especially not with Dionysus Iros, the most aggravating, demanding customer she'd ever had to serve. With his rippling muscles and sexy, knowing eyes, he's obviously trouble with a capital T. Unfortunately, he's also the star of her every X-rated dream. She’s known players like Dionysus before, and one of them almost got the better of her. Josie determines she will not fall for his considerable physical charms, come hell or high water.

But Dionysus turns strangely protective when a sinister character arrives at Josie's bakery, and they can no longer deny their unwanted feelings for one another. They are forced to embark on a bizarre, sexually-charged journey to hell itself, which threatens to either change them for the better, or destroy them.

Oh Sweet Hell, I’m in love…. With Dionysus. The son of Zeus, the God of fertility and wine, a patron of the arts… and one fiiiiine man. When this story starts he is a playboy, and a cocky one at that. Then one step into one bakery and his life forever more has changed. See, at this bakery is Josie Marino, coffee and baker extraordinaire. And even though she is typically not his type, he is very soon finding himself enthralled with her – and she with him. Now if we can get them both to realize it, eh?

“He looked up at her. His cock soared, doing a rowdy dance of happiness.”

Now that’s a greeating I can really get on board with! She’s got him tongue tied and twisted, something that doesn’t happen to gods too often!

Rosanna Leo has managed to write a romance that is funny and interesting, dramatic and tender. Her sense of humor comes through in spades, and I was in complete joy. How could you not be with lines like:

“By the great hairy balls of Zeus! What the fuck was going on?”

Best.Line.Ever. I really must find a way to use this line in every day conversation. Even funnier since Dionysus is the son of Zeus ;)

Dionysus and Josie were both terrific characters, easily likeable and easy to care for. Dionysus comes to the bakery for months, coaching Josie on the perfect cup of coffee, never making a move on her. But meanwhile they are falling for each other. I loved it! At times he was positively an ass to Josie, pretty much the equivalent of a school yard boy picking on a girl cause in reality he liked her.

But then Dionysus’ past catches up with him, and he must make a dangerous trip. But Josie isn’t about to let him out of her sight just yet.

Josie and Dionysus’ adventure of tribulations is vastly unlike any other. Infused with Rosanna’s great sense of humor, their journey covers everything; fear, hate, love, sadness, joy, laughter, arousal, comfort, and even more. This isn’t just another love story. There is great heart. And seriously, a first kiss that has got me thinking I might start a first kiss rating on my site. Dionysus and Josie would get a 5!
