Once again, I’m in love with this author’s writing. I’ll admit, the style of Solis is unique (imo) you might need to be in the mood for it. The flow, the form, the essence of Solis reminds me a rose covered arbor. Vines, both thick and delicate, laced through a solid support, with thorns placed sporadically, and dotted with joyful, bright, sun kissed blossoms. That is Solis.
Veva is wary (okay, nearly petrified) to put any faith in men, especially ones with reputations. So when Solis shows interest, she does what she can to blow him off. Which obviously doesn’t work. I really loved her realistic combination of features and flaws.
Solis is wonderful. Perfect? No way, but still wonderful. I had issues with how hard he pushed Veva out of her comfort zone, through her fears, but if she can deal so can I. He is kind, determined, caring, and funny. Yeah, Solis is a keeper #BBF.
Dunbar’s revitalization of Greek mythology makes me want to go and read the original versions. For me, that says a lot.
Veva Matron is a feisty girl raging with suppressed anger and distrust of men.
Solis Cronus is a blindingly beautiful, Greek god of a guy, who likes to play women.
An electric hatred thunders through each of them about the other until one night, lightning strikes. A world of secrets reveals the destiny of two at odds with one another, and clouds the line between love and hate. Can a lively girl find calm in the stormy tension of a boy made of sunshine and sin?
The mythical tale of Zeus and Hera reignites in this modern interpretation of enemies to lovers. Full of flirty sexual angst and teasing temptation, Solis might be the one man who can extinguish Veva’s angry fire and ignite a different sort of flame: desire.
