Romance Dark | Romance Fantasy

Eurydice Dimitriou is the quiet one in her powerful family. They are part of the 13 that rule Olympus, but she is always in the background and not unhappy about it. But now with the barrier failing and danger facing the 13, her family and the city she loves, she has to step out of the background and do what she can to save her people. Part of the process of living again is getting over having her heart destroyed. She feels ready to move on and maybe a good MIDNIGHT RUIN is just what she needs. Little does she realize that Charon Ariti – Hades's second in command – has been waiting for her heart to heal.
Just when things start happening the heartbreaker shows up begging forgiveness. Will Eurydice forgive him? Will Charon lose her after all? And can they protect their world against the force that is determined to take over and rule Olympus their way through destruction and death?
MIDNIGHT RUIN takes readers back into Katee Robert’s Dark Olympus wild world. The romance is steamy as expected but there is some submissive kink with Eurydice playing the dominant to her ex-boyfriend who had returned just when she moved on with her new lover. Charon is willing to let her decide what to do with Orpheus, but he isn’t happy to see the man back, except that he is also attracted to him. This kink leads to a very different triad dynamic.
The political side has taken over from the mythology that was in the first books. I enjoyed and miss the glitz and glamour that filled the earlier books in the series. It felt a bit repetitive when it came to the political side of the world. Though, I guess, for those who pick up MIDNIGHT RUIN and haven’t read the others it will help make it more of a standalone. All in all, a very good read, and the ending will give you a – wait that can’t be the end – moment and leave you wanting the next offering right now.

SUMMARY

*A scorchingly hot modern retelling of Eurydice and Orpheus and Charon.*

Eurydice Dimitriou has always been the innocent sister, but she's finally ready to step out of the long shadow cast by her powerful family…and the ex who shattered her heart. Perhaps rough hands on soft skin are exactly what she needs to forget her heartbreak once and for all?

Charon Ariti has been Hades's right-hand man for years. He's given everything to the lower city, but now he's ready to take something for himself. He's only too happy to give Eurydice a special kind of education…but is her heart really free enough to be claimed?

Orpheus Makos will do whatever it takes to make things right. Once the golden boy of the upper city, he's now a shadow of his former self. He'll do anything to get Eurydice back…even if it means she's not coming into his arms alone. Three hearts. Three futures. Countless ways to get it wrong.

But with enemies slipping through Olympus's faltering barrier to lay siege on the lower city, a trio of broken hearts will be the least of these would-be lovers' worries…
