My Date From Hell by Tellulah Darling

Release Date: 10/31/13

Summary from Goodreads:
Sophie Bloom’s junior year has been a bit of a train wreck. After the world’s greatest kiss re-awakened Sophie’s true identity as Persephone (Goddess of Spring and Savior of Humanity), she fought her dragon-lady guidance counselor to the death, navigated mean girl Bethany’s bitchy troublemaking, and dealt with the betrayal of her backstabbing ex, Kai (sexy Prince of Darkness). You’d think a girl could catch a break.

Yeah, right.

With Zeus stepping things up, it’s vital that Sophie retrieve Persephone’s memories and discover the location of the ritual to stop Zeus and Hades. So when Aphrodite strikes a deal that can unlock Sophie’s pre-mortal past, what choice does the teen goddess have but to accept?

The mission: stop media mogul Hermes from turning Bethany into a global mega-celebrity. The catch? Aphrodite partners Sophie and Kai to work together … and treat this suicide mission as a date. Which could work out for Sophie’s plan to force Kai to admit his feelings for her–if she doesn’t kill him first.

Add to that the fact that BFF Theo’s love life and other BFF Hannah’s actual life are in Sophie’s hands, and suddenly being a teenager—even a godlike one—seems a bit like … well, hell. Whatever happened to dinner and a movie?

The YA romantic comedy/Greek mythology fireworks continue to fly inMy Date From Hell. Love meets comedy with a whole lot of sass in book two of this teen fantasy romance series. Breaking up is easy; dating is deadly.

Her tales span contemporary, teen fantasy romance, and YA Greek mythology, and range from stand alone books to series.

The Good: I loved the strength and vulnerability of Sophie. She just wanted to be herself, the human, not Persephone. She wanted Kai to love her for her and found it next to impossible to live up to the idea of Persephone and Kai’s love. The uncertainty and insecurity she felt made her character feel more real, more breakable. Sophie is one of the strongest characters I’ve read in a while. She never backs down from a fight and I think that is inspiring. Aphrodite was another favorite person of mine. Who doesn’t like to read trashy gods? Her Brooklyn accent made me laugh.

The Bad:  The only thing I found in the book I didn’t like was the game she had to play for Hermes. It seemed to drag on in places like she was just filling the page with words. I think sometimes less actually is more.

The Outcome:  Hilarious. It is just as funny as the first part, especially once Theo’s soon-to-be boyfriend shows up. I laughed and I found myself smiling a lot at the romance that developed between Sophie the human and Kai, the God. It was fun to see Kai have to realize what the human meant to him. This is a book I’d recommend to anyone. It’s fun and cute.
