Medusa A Love Story-Birthday Bash-Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

So exciting to be able to share with you the Birthday Bash for MEDUSA by Sasha Summers!!! 

It's said love can change a person. Medusa wasn't always a monster...

Medusa is ruled by duty, to her Titan father and the Goddess Athena. She's no room for the tenderness her warrior guard, Ariston, stirs. When Olympus frees her from service, her heart leads her into the arms of the guard she loves... and curses her as the creature with serpent locks.

Ariston goes to war with a full heart... and dreadful foreboding. He learns too late of the danger Medusa faces, alone, and a Persian blade sends him into the Underworld. But death, curses, nor the wrath of the Gods will keep him from returning to her.

Poseidon will use Greece's war to get what he wants: Medusa. He does not care that she belongs to another. He does not care that she will be damned. He is a God, an Olympian, and she will be his.
My Review
When I was first asked to read this, I didn't know if I would like it, especially since I wasn't sure if it would have a Happy ending (which is a must for me) but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed reading Medusa. At first I had a bit of a hard time getting into it, I don't know if it was just me or what, but I just had a feeling I needed to stick with it. However once I read the first chapter or two I was instantly drawn into this passionate love story that almost broke my heart. There were many different aspects that I liked about this. For one, is the theme of mythology that is almost the center of the culture and surroudings in this story. I have always been fascinated with greek mythology, and I really enjoyed seeing the interaction of the different gods in this one, and how in the end they were pretty much cheering for the couple (just like me!!:) But I also found the plot to be very on the edge type. There was non stop intensity and it felt so tragic at times. This is the type of romance that you want to make sure you have some tissues next to you---guaranteed to put your emotions through the ringer. It has been a while since I have read a story that had so much heartfelt emotions and almost makes you feel like you are on a roller coaster. Another aspect I like is that this author decided to go with Medusa. With most people, even me, I have found Medusa to be one of my least favorite characters, in greek mythology. I enjoyed seeing Medusa being put in as the good side of things, and we see a innocence about her and you feel like you can relate with her in a mortal way. There was also such a vibrancy to the style of writing that is used, somewhat different than what I am used to (which I found to be Awesome!) It was as if Summers was trying to reach out to her readers and share a special story, a story that has totally captured my heart. There was such a beautiful connection between the characters, their love so enthralling!!! If you are looking for a sweet love story, that is full of intensity, unsurmountable conflict (like the sea) and a couple that are so fully dedicated they risk everything for each other!!! A love story to bring a tear to your eye and a smile to your heart.
