Publisher's Summary

The Gods are back in town.

Well, to be precise, they never left.

Just because people stopped believing in them, didn't make them disappear, and Hades, Apollo, Ares, Poseidon, and Zeus are all as about town as they ever were. They just have different names.

Ziel Dearil is the God of the dead and the King of the Underworld. With his guardians at his side, demi-god Orpheus, and hero Icarus, he's been ruling his rather boring realm with an iron fist since time began.

Then, everything changes when Cressida Jonas walks into their world.

When Hades informs the multi platinum-selling, multi award-winning singer that she's his wife, any normal woman might have run screaming for the hills. Cressida, on the other hand, sees this as an opportunity to get revenge on the man who wronged her 18 months ago.

Falling for three guys was never a part of the program, just vengeance, but of course, the Fates have a way of messing with the best laid plans.

See what they have in store for Cressida, Hades, Icarus, and Orpheus in Hotter than Hades!

Good read. Gotta love steamy mythology gods. Yippee

If you love Gods and Mythology you will like this one.
I wasn’t sure about this book. Usually our main women characters are perfect and no flaws but this was a welcomed relief. Strong women over coming things that go on in the real world but hot guys to help her threw it all.
3 Steamy hot, God, Demi God, and Hero!! yes please. Can’t wait to hear Ella story coming hopefully soon.

My Two Pennies

I’ve been hooked on the Hotter than Hades series for some time and this story just topped them all. When we’re first introduced to Cressida and her backstory I was intrigued and that only grew deeper and the story unfolded. The multiple point of views made the characters develop more of a connection with us readers and the narration by Kai was just amazing, she has a way of giving each character their own voice and you know whom is talking each time without question. Phenomenal read with a great ending.

Not your typical story of the Gods

I really enjoyed this story. Cressida has been wronged in her past and isn't herself. When she is suddenly made aware she is the wife to 3 men, one of them a God, her life changes for the better. Revenge is number one on her list. This story had me laughing several times. It's different from your typical mythological God stories. Who knew the Gods were still alive and messing with peoples lives. Her best friend Ella is the best.

Kai Kennicott did a great job narrating and made listening enjoyable.

Hotter than Hades

This book has so much depth in the pain and recovery after such a tragic incident. To see her move past this as well as find some amazing men to help makes for a great listen. Although this is part of a series, the book does give you a happy for now ending, but I’m still excited to listen to the next!

UGH HORRIBLE

To be honest I couldn’t tell you if this book is good or not. I couldn’t get through 3 chapters. The Narration is so bad it’s not even funny. Not only is the female narrator doing both the male and female read. They also be talking in third person. & that’s grates on my nerves so damn bad. Ugh. No I will not finish or be getting the next book.

Better than 5 Stars!

WOW! What a hot and emotional story! I didn’t want it to end. Kai Kennicott was absolutely fantastic narrating it! She put so much emotions into every word. I felt like I was watching it in person.

nothing wrong, but nothing spectacular

all likeable characters, well developed. interesting world. the plot just lacked luster, making it a slow moving book, certainly no excitement.

What a hot steamy romance.

Loved this audiobook, completely different from all other poly books I've read/listened to.
Serena really does write amazing in depth stories that pull the reader/listener in.
I've listened to both books in the series and would love more.

Loved it

Serena has smashed it out of the park as usual. Hot and steamy this is sure to raise your temperature! Kai is a new narrator for me but I enjoyed her performance. Can’t wait for the next book to release.

🖤 Perfect title 🖤

This book was an epic story. I loved the use of Greek Gods, ive always been a sucker for books that have Gods in play. Kiel, Nash and Christian brought the perfect mix of sexy, protectiveness, power and love. I can not wait to read the 2nd book to find out what happens next and i just know i won't be disappointed.
I have a real soft spot for vengence after being victimized, and i adore that she was totally into it.
thankyou for another great book.
the narrator also did a wonderful job bringing the story to life.
