Review: Paper Fools by Staci Hart

*****4.5 Stars*****

What do you get when two Greek Gods who love to play games, use two unsuspecting humans as their pawns? A solidly entertaining read! Staci Hart tackles Greek mythology against the backdrop of a contemporary NA romance in Paper Fools and I loved every minute of it!

Aphrodite's personal life is a mess. She'd much rather mettle in the affairs of human love than deal with her own issues. She and Apollo are in engaged in a continuous game involving poor unsuspecting humans. If Aphrodite can make two selected people fall in love in a month, she wins. If she can't Apollo wins. Love is her speciality and she has no plans to lose.

Lex and Dean are the two poor unsuspecting souls who are about to have their hearts mettled with. There is an immediate attraction between them, but neither is willing to risk the professional fallout or personal hurt taking a chance in each other would involve. They soon find out that staying apart is easier said than done, especially when two very determined Greek gods are at work behind the scenes.

I enjoyed Paper Fools tremendously. Hart does an excellent job juggling Greek Mythology along with a contemporary romance storyline. This plays out almost like two novels since we have the Greek storyline happening along with Lex and Dean's story. I've read a number of romance over the years that have elements of Greek Mythology, but this one took a unique approach I found intriguing and refreshing. I'm very much looking forward to seeing where this series takes us next.

Formerly titled Deer in Headlights, Paper Fools has been rewritten and re-edited just for you.

Aphrodite knows love — just don’t ask her to figure out her own mess.

Rather than deal with her sticky love life, she toys with the hearts of unwitting humans. It’s a little game she plays, and the stakes are high. Lucky for her, she’s just found the perfect match.

Lex is everything Dean needs, but he can’t have her.

It doesn’t matter that her eyes speak to a long forgotten part of him, or that her art and poetry touch his shredded heart. She’s off limits — crossing that line would implode his band and everything he’s ever cared about. There’s only one option: stay away from her, no matter the cost. Even if the price is his heart.

Dean is everything Lex wants, but she can’t take the risk.

The second she meets him, she knows her heart is in danger. She’s convinced it’s only attraction that has her hung up on the dark, quiet lead singer, but with every day that passes, she knows it’s more. It’s just that she can’t put her heart on the line. She won’t — love has never been worth the sacrifice.

If only they knew they were just pawns in a much bigger game. And in the game of love, Aphrodite never loses.
