Cold. Rich. Dangerous. Billionaire Hades hides a terrible secret behind his wealth. A painful past left him battered and scarred. He’s living on borrowed time until sheltered Persephone enters his life.
He knows what it is to hurt. But the worst pain is to need.
Persephone is only supposed to be a pawn in his game. A bargaining chip. But from the moment he lays eyes on her, he knows she’ll be the one to break him.
He won’t give her up, even if it costs Persephone her heart.
Even if it costs him his life.

Caution - spoilers:
The protagonists have a toxic, if not dangerous relationship.
SHE has no self-esteem or morals (he's a killer, but that's okay as long as he pleases her sexually).
She also cries all the time. You ask why? Well HE has a „tear fetish“. He is also cruel, cold and uncaring and cannot show his feelings and she loves that. Her cruel mother, however, is someone you run away from - ah yes ... makes sense I guess ...
He calls her a sl*t and she calls herself that at some point too. Why? Just because you like the sex to be rough, doesn't make you a sl*t. What are these old beliefs?
In addition, she always wants to know everything, but does not use this knowledge.
But much worse than that is the dangerous, negligent portrayal of „oh-so-hot sex“. If (in that case) a woman says no, the man has to accept it! NO MEANS NO! And if there are any difficulties in communication during your BDSM session, then use a code word!
If a person has been drugged, then you do not take advantage of this situation (sexually), but make sure that the person sees a doctor, drinks enough, etc. Especially when you pretend to love this person. This scene was so wrong! I still feel sick from it ...
Besides, I couldn't stand the repeated repetitions of words (why, why, why? - Black. They're black. Too black. - That felt bad. Very bad. - What do you want? What do you want? - It's very, very bad, and it's very wrong. ... ).
In my opinion, this book or book series is not a retelling of Hades and Persephone. Change the names and you would not recognize the Greek legend in it.
Positive: the cover and the page design, although neither the pomegranate (seeds) nor the Greek patterns play a role in the story ...
Hope Amazon will post this review. If I had known that beforehand, I would not have ordered it.
Yet there's something that draws the reader in...and that's why the high stars for me.
The heroine, P, is very naive, but then she's been very sheltered her whole life and filled full of untrue things. It shows what happens to young pp only exposed to one way of life and 'truth'.
Hades has been horribly, brutally abused as a child, and I can understand his actions. he doesn't know love, and has no idea how to give or receive it. He also has a medical condition (this was a BRILLIANT twist on the Hades legend...I loved this twist and it was well handled in every way, consistent and well done)
The 'show the guy' and window/balcony scene was a bit over the top for me. It seemed way beyond cruel. There's A LOT of cruelty in this, but P does, in her way, crave and almost need the spankings, etc. And hey, that's a kink some ppl have so I don't worry about that. But that scene...was beyond spanking. At no time did P or H indicate P liked having ppl watch her...and it felt so wrong-- just a hair from rape, and that was troubling.
It's also way believable he'd use sex to dull his pain. Many do. I have migraines, so I get this. And P WANTED to help. So there at no time rape or no consent beyond what I've mentioned. Yes, rough, very rough sex, but again, that's a kink for some, and whatever floats your boat, ehh?
But the reason for the high stars...I love how their relationship grows and develops. We don't get all the reasons and stories behind either character (unless you read ALL the books in this series), but I can truly see how they fall in love, the sacrifices each makes for the other, and the 'whys' behind their motives and actions. It becomes a beautiful love story and also one of growth and wow, does each of them change and grow from the start to the finish. I was rooting for them and I honestly couldn't see how the heck these two could be together and allowed to love. The end wasn't at all convenient or implausible.
And omg...he gives her a LIBRARY. I fell for him for that alone. She didn't even tell him and he gave her, no restrictions, no conditions, just all for her, a whole library, and all the time in the world to curl up and read. That's a HERO.
So...if you can't get past really rough consensual sex, you aren't going to like this story. But I did. Well done, Ms. Wilde.
Binge the whole Hades & Persephone saga in one sitting!!!
Modern take on Hades and Persephone with all the heat...and dark...
I have always been fascinated by the Hades & Persephone mythology. (So much so, that my bestie and I named a kitten we rescued Persephone due to a shared custody situation.)
Persephone has been sheltered by her mother her entire life. She has reached the point where she wants to escape. To experience things. Her fascination with the New York Public Library...I love it.
She has been taught that Hades is dangerous. That he will be her end.
So when she finds herself throwing herself at his mercy to save the boy she was meeting, she has no idea what she's in for.
Hades (Luther) rules his world with an strict hand. Everyone has given themselves over to him in exchange for something. Little does he expect Demeter's daughter to end up in that position.
He is fascinated by the innocent Persephone. He finds himself thinking of her more than he ever has for anyone.
They are both drawn to each other. He senses her darkness. She finds herself wanting him to do those dark things to her.
Definitely a fantastic modern take on the myth...and a much more adult take on it as well.
Dark, dark, dark. Love the dark.
This is only the beginning. Ends on a cliffie.
Introduction to the rest of Hades dysfunctional family.
Persephone is so much more than expected...
We open on a flashback to a rebellious moment that foreshadows Persephone's future. And a reference to the Fates.
Forward to the present, Hades is dealing with the aftermath of Persephone's kidnapping. He knows it was Zeus. The order of things is about to come tumbling down...
Meanwhile Persephone discovers her captor and Hades AND her mother are all connected...closely...
...but she still wants her Hades. He definitely wouldn't be happy she's in a whorehouse.
Lucky for her, he does something he rarely does...
...and so a chain of events is triggered...
In the meantime, we learn more about Hades, why he prefers the dark, and the way things are supposed to be.
Persephone goes from a sprouting bud to full bloom by the end...she is ready to lead her people to war. She and Hades are darkness and light.
Hades and Persephone go to war for love!
The fantastic conclusion to this amazing retelling of their story.
The war comes to the mountain. Zeus attacks. Poseidon makes an appearance. (Love this take on him! Please, please, please tell me we get a story for him too!)
More backstory...Demeter is one cold mama.
I love this story even more now that we've gotten to the conclusion. No big surprise this is one dysfunctional family, but Hades & Persephone are starting their own HEA. Persephone has given Hades a silver lining in his darkness. Hades has helped Persephone find her strength.
You'll want to move onto Zeus and Poseidon's worlds next!!
I received a review copy. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
