I received a copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Story Overview:
Romulus and Remus are sexy werewolf cousins with an unbreakable bond. When they meet beautiful goddess Amity and save her from an encroaching demon, they discover that the three of them together are way more powerful than any of them could ever have imagined. And they're going to need that power to overcome the forces that are determined to steal Amity's magic and destroy the two men. As different as night and day, and each an amazing man in his own right, Rom and Remy make all of Amity's deepest fantasies come true ...

My Review:
And the plot thickens...This is the third book in the Forgotten Goddesses series. This erotic series has a great balance of mythology and sexy lucani werewolves. In this series, the Etruscan goddesses are losing their power more and more as they become more and more forgotten by the world. But that hasn't stopped Charun, the God of the Underworld, from attacking them to try and steal their powers. His latest target is Amity the Goddess of Health. She has settled into the human world and works as a healthcare provider, healing in little bits and spurts where she can with her floundering powers.

But Charun's focus has brought a demon after her. He just happens to be a demon that Rom and Remy are chasing after because he killed their families. That brings them to Amity....a plus since the Goddesses are empowered by sex and since these two guys are seriously powerful lucani, they infuse her with a really powerful surge. 

There is lots of really great things happening in this book. Rom and Remy have spent years running and focused on revenge. They're powerful so that means lots of people would like to get hold of them. They both have mental scars from their experiences, but those are eased around Amity. They also share a mental bond and I loved that aspect of the story. The three of them together have some amazing chemistry and there was enough angst to keep me happy.

The overall arching story line of the series took an interesting twist in this book and I'm excited to see where it goes....both with Charun and Cat have really promising stories going on. I need to go check Stephanie's website and see whose story is coming up next. I'm also really interested in X...I don't remember seeing too much of him in the first two books. It's all good and I continue to love this series. It's fun and entertaining and really super-sexy.
