Publisher's Summary

Greek Gods. Reverse Harem. Oh, my!

I’m a warrior. Cursed to fight monsters. Sworn to act as Zeus’ sword to protect mankind.

But I’d give it all up for one last kiss with the god who stole my heart...Apollo.

I never wanted to carry my family's legacy. But blood ties cannot be broken, and I’ll keep the promise I made my father on his dying bed. Legendary monsters hunt in city streets of Chicago, and my job was to take down the worst.

I’ve trained with Heracles. Been blessed with super human powers. What I’ve never done is fallen in love, until Apollo crossed my path. But he isn’t the only god to catch my attention. Hades is here too, and with him comes a darkness that leaves behind a trail of human bodies. Heracles and my gut instinct urges me to destroy this creature, but each step brings me closer to the truth...

Darkness cannot win…or the Earth will tumble into chaos and I’ll lose the god I’ve come to love…Apollo is mine.

Apollo is Mine is book 1 in the Gods and Monsters reverse harem series.

Content Warning: Steamy love scenes, dominating alphas who protect their female, and plenty of sexy Greek gods who will leave you breathless.

Apollo Is Mine - By Mila Young

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review

Humans destroyed more than they created.

Elyse is a warrior in human skin. Her family, blessed by Zeus to have three human lives, has battled whatever X throws their way. From smaller Greek mythology creatures to centaurs and minotaurs.
Now that she’s the only one left in her family, she feels the pressure, and she trains more than ever. Her mentor, Hercules, is assigned to make her ready for the troubles she has to face next.
When Hades enter the human world, he somehow brings X with him and sets him loose in the world. Elyse and Hercules notice the shift in the atmosphere, but when it comes to hunting down creatures and gods, Elyse is on her own.
When she encounters Hades, she experiences something she never would have thought possible – they attract each other instantly in a wave of lust. Their clash of passion leaves Elyse confused and more determined to get rid of X than ever, and she blames Hades for it all.
Fate has something else in mind, though, as the same thing happens with Apollo. Forces outside of herself are bringing her close to both men, and she tries to deny their attraction. Both men try to stay away from her as well, but when the universe is forcing them together, who are they to resist?

For one reason or another, I can’t get enough of Reverse Harem stories. With this book, I discovered a new author I want to explore. Mila Young creates fantasy romance novels from her favorite fairy tales, and she brings them to life in sexy and alluring ways. Reading about sexy, Greek gods can’t go wrong, in my opinion.
Without further ado, Apollo Is Mine is a Reverse Harem paranormal romance, of the erotic kind. Meaning, there’s one girl with multiple guys. No love triangle, as she gets them all. In this case, the Greek gods are real, they walk the Earth looking like supermodels, and they want Elyse.

Their encounters are filled with passion and lust, and it gets pretty steamy between them. Still, Mila doesn't dish out everything right away, leaving me wanting more.
Often, in books like these, there’s no chemistry between the characters, but Apollo Is Mine creates it and keeps it going. Give me a romance where the characters try to stay away from each other, but can’t, and I’m all in.
Even better, the men here are the ravaging type of guys, they want what they want, and they take it. However, they ask Elyse if she wishes to continue before they go all the way – taking consent into the picture. They also wear condoms during sex, at least when they want to orgasm. At one point it was skin to skin contact, but I guess gods don’t have STD’s? That’s how I filled the blank, so no complaints from me.

The cast of narrators from Spectrum Audiobooks did a splendid job, and all the characters had their own voice and way of speaking. It made it interesting, believable, and quite enjoyable. I adored how they brought the story to life, and even though it was a 7 hour long listen, it ended too soon. To be honest, I could listen to Hades’ voice all day. He’s got a talent for narrating.

I'm annoyed at the abrupt ending, though. The story didn’t have enough closure for my liking, and it ended on a cliffhanger – which seriously should be forbidden. It brings down my stars by a point because it left the story feeling unsatisfactory, and that’s a big no. That’s my sole complaint, so nothing major!

If you’re looking for some paranormal romance – or a new kink – then Mila Young’s books are the way to go.

Great Story and Fantastic Narration!

This was my first Mila Young's book, and won't be my last. This is the first book in the Gods and Monsters, a reverse harem Series. I loved this story! Elyse, is a feisty and sassy heroine. Her Gods, Hades and Apollo, are handsome and very sexy. They share a strong and sizzling chemistry. The storyline is fast-paced, action packed, steamy and fun. The narrators did a fantastic job with the narration. I enjoyed listening to this audiobook, and I can't wait for the next book in the Series, Poseidon Is Mine.

Can't wait for book 2 later this month!!

So this was my first book I read/listened to of Mila Young. Yes, I know. I am way late to the program! I have had her on my TBR list for forever and am so excited I listened to Book 1 in her Gods and Monsters series! It was really well done and I am super excited to dive into the other books❤️

So I will first touch on the narration. I really liked the various narrators in this mashup. I thought Stacy did a phenomenal job and will check out other books she has narrated previously. I am unsure who did which guy, but I really loved the timbre of Hades' voice and loved the expressiveness of Apollo's voice. I thought this team was stellar and hope everyone stays on for the rest of the series! Amazing job guys, you really brought these characters to life and helped me imagine the scenes vividly.

In terms of the story, there were times I was brought out of the world because of how things were done. Now, I loved the storyline and characters, but some of the MC's lines/feelings got repetitive and could have been trimmed down or reworded so readers wouldn't notice. That was the only reason I couldn't give this 5 stars across the board. I am interested to read/listen to book 2 to see how everything develops. I fell in love with mythology with books like Percy Jackson and this series has jumped up my TBR list. I am gonna wait until book 2 is out this month and then devour books 3 and 4 haha. Yay for self-control, sorta haha.

Definitely pick this audiobook up! You will be sucked in and will love everything about it. I can't wait to see how the MC deals with all the hottie gods in her life and hope for more battles with mythological creatures. Also, she needs to forgive Hades and reconnect, if you get my drift hehe 😉😍❤️

Amazing!

Very well written and captivating! Some steamy moments as this love triangle develops with this strong heroine. A story you don't want to miss if you love some Greek mythology mixed with some romance. I can't wait to see where things go in the next books of the series!

In the beginning of the performance I kind of thought the narration was almost a little bit too enthusiastic; but found that it toned down to the perfect level. These narrators gave a great performance and fit these characters well.

God's and Monsters is the best read of 2019

First, I have to start off by stating that I got this book free of charge in exchange for a review, but as I always state, this does not in any way impact my review. My reviews are always honest and my own.

You think you know the Greek Gods? Hold on tight because these gods are hotter than hot and they all want Elyse. She's the last of her family imbued with the power of Zeus and her role is to protect innocent humans. Apollo is already on Earth but gets in over his head when he engages with Elyse.
When Hades arrives on Earth, all hell breaks loose. Death (known as X) separates from Hades and goes on a rampage. Elyse knows it's her destiny to fight and *fingers crossed* stop X but she's only got three lives. Apollo and Hades both protect her as best as they can, both inside the bedroom and out. Can she stop X from sucking souls or will she die like the rest of her family?

WOW! What a great book! This was my first reverse harem book and I have to say, I quite enjoyed it. Who says men get to have all the fun? Steamy, sexy with good world building. I can't wait to see what happens when Poseidon and Ares enter the fray!

Feisty

The heroine is human and feisty. I love how she puts herself out there for these hot hunks but she also knows her worth and isn't going to let them get in her way. She's loyal to her heritage but I think she's feeling a little torn with her love for these Gods as well. Some great steamy scenes and lots of chemistry with each of them! Great action, with a touch of mystery involving X. The ending is tantalizing since we get to meet two more future "friends". There are quite a few narrators and all were good but whoever did the voice for Hades was awesome! I could feel the whole character when he was narrating. I can't wait for more in the next audiobook!!

Hot steamy studs. Badass chick instead of a whiny girl. Can’t wait till more to come. Bring it on!
Warning:: kinda a cliffhanger but not a terrible one.
Just one of those cliffhangers that you want to hear more and never want the fun to end.

Let this gods surround you in Audio

Love how Mila Young wrote something different then her other series. This series is hot. This book 1 is about the major male Greek gods . Apollo is the God of light , poetry, healing, oracles, and truth .
Heroine is Elyse.
You see a few major Greek gods , like Hades and Apollo.
Elyse Is the only Lowe family left on Earth , the beauty of the Lowe family is they received special powers from Zeus to save mankind. Her powers are strong enough to fight monsters and Elyse major fight should be fighting X who follows Hades on earth. Hercules trains Elyse by orders of Zeus.
Elyse doesn’t know what to do . She has an attraction to Hades and they do some heavy petting, she meets Apollo on a motorcycle and under a bridge Elyse and Apollo have $ex .
Elyse doesn’t know what to do when she’s hot for both Greek Gods . Apollo is fighting his attraction to Elyse .
How do the three handle the attraction

All four narrators were fantastic. They brought the story to life . It felt like you were right beside them
