My Date From Hell (The Blooming Goddess #2) by Tellulah Darling
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.
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 in My 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.
The first book in this series, My ex from hell, was so funny and interesting I instantly fell in love with the characters and in the story. So, when I got a chance to read My date from hell early, I jumped on it and was instantly swept into Sophie's world. I fell in love with Hephestus, the god Sophie enlists to help her and it turns out he and Theo have some history. He is so funny and cute, I want their story to have a happy ending. I adore Sophe and he sense of humor and how he tries to come to grips with her past self and her powers and her relationship with Kai. We finally find out who killed Persephone and we see the truth about Persephone. The ending broke my heart along witk Sophe's and I am aching to read My life from hell to see how it all plays out. Amazing writing and story-telling.
