“Venus was restless.” This was another great novel in Cast’s Goddess Summoning series. I don’t usually enjoy romance novels that combine two or more love stories. However, the two stories in Goddess of Love compliment each other well. It was also nice to see a goddess getting some love. In the previous books, the story revolves around a mortal woman who summons a goddess to help her in some way and ends up entangled and falling in love with a god or other mythical creature. In this book, something similar happens when Pea, a socially awkward but kind woman, summons the goddess of love for help attracting men. The twist is, though, that when Venus comes to her aide, the goddess find herself falling in love with the guy Pea is crushing on. Don’t worry though, the extremely sexy God of Fire will track down Pea and catch her eye. Both of the romantic relationships worked well and were nice and steamy. However, I also loved the friendship that developed between Pea and Venus. The best part, though, was that when Venus goes online to research modern behavior, she learns quite a bit from my favorite blog – Smart B*tches, Trashy Books. I loved that these awesome reviewers of romance got a cameo and in an awesome book. I can’t wait to get the next in this series. Tone: Feminine, Spunky, Hot
