Ares' Temptation by Aubrie Dionne

25047692The worst thing that can happen to you if you are a god is lose your powers when you piss off a witch. Well that's exactly what happens to Ares, the God of War.

When Ares kills Hecate's brother, she vows revenge, so like any good witch, she curses him. The next person Ares touches will gain all his powers and he will obtain all their weaknesses. The only way to break the curse is by getting the other person to fall in love with him.

Enter, Kaye Underhill somewhat clumsy and no where near physically fit, she's skinny and all, but she's not the type to go running. 

Ares is at Pan's wedding when he meets Kaye a mortal, with a little help, I mean interference from Hecate, Kaye accidentally acquires Ares's powers. From there the story really begins and so does the love of these two quirky characters.

Ares, who adopts the name Armin Warhammer as his human name sets off to win Kaye's heart. 

The story was great, Ares is so funny, his lack of human knowledge is hilarious and Kaye, if I had a brother like her's, I would have put him in a box and returned to sender forever ago.

It was also great to see the characters gradually come together and see big macho man Ares/Armin fall in love.
