Filthy Gods (American Gods 0.5), an all-new Sexy Romance by R. Scarlett is AVAILABLE NOW!
Prelude in the American Gods series.
Young. Wealthy. Elite. Attractive. The gentlemen’s secret society at Yale was filled with them.
And Nathaniel Radcliffe, the bane of my existence, was one of them.
As the right hand of the American Gods, he was conceited and arrogant. A dangerously handsome man in a tailored custom suit and shiny black oxford loafers.
The classroom was our battlefield. We made a sport out of arguing and debating, ready to do anything in order to win over the other.
Deadly opponents, deadlier minds.
I’d sworn I’d never give him the upper hand, until…
The secret I’ve been hiding for the last three years?
He just discovered it…and now he has all the power.

~WRITING – PLOT – PACE~
Wowza…this book was SO good. A fantastic start to a very intriguing new series that was very nearly perfect. The writing (as is always the case with this author) was excellent. It is a fairly short book that took me about an hour to read. It moved along at a good clip. The plot was super engaging, and the ending was sweet. Now, I said NEARLY perfect. Personally, I would have preferred this book be a full-length novel. I would have liked to have seen some of their school interactions, and the romance is a bit rushed with some time jumps that cover the Summer. I would have also liked to have seen more story from Nathan’s POV. We really only get one chapter right at the end from his POV. Both those were just minor issues which only affected my rating slightly.
NATHANIEL…I quite liked Nathan. He was sexy. He was smart. He was sweet. He was cocky. He was arrogant. He was all about Juliette. He was a pretty damn near perfect book boyfriend.
JULIETTE…Juliette was also a very likable character. She was smart. She was feisty. She was strong. She worked her butt off. I love how she held her own with Nathan.
This one wasn’t heavy on secondary characters, but we do get introductions to the other American Gods players. I think I am most intrigued by Arsen, the broody tattooed Russian.
Medium. There are some suitably spicy sex scenes in this one. It was maybe slightly tamer than I anticipated, but given its length and fast pace, it worked well within the context of this story.
~ANGST LEVEL – SEXUAL HISTORIES~
Low. I didn’t find this one particularly angsty for most of the book. The drama near the end was the angstiest part. This couple had the whole “hate turned to love” thing down pat. Most of the hate happened before this book begins, so this felt very “insta” and they are a pretty solid couple from the start. There was a TINY SMIDGE of OW drama. There was no OM drama. Neither were virgins.
~IN THE END~
LOVED IT! It was almost perfect. Fantastic writing. Great plot. Likable main characters. Intriguing secondary characters. I don’t have much else to say about it. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book (Gabe’s). Therefore yours truly is going to give this one two solid thumbs up.
