Out of Practice Aphrodite (The Naughty Goddess Chronicles) - S.E. Babin

4.5 Stars!

Abby’s major screw-up brings the wrath of Zeus upon her head. He offers her a choice – work for him or spend the rest of her days hanging out in Hades with her ex-husband. For Abby, this choice is a no-brainer, especially when Zeus says the only thing he wants her to do is make a love match.
She’s the Goddess of Love. What could go wrong?


Abby stumbles into an ex-lover, a dead demi-god and the realization that a crucial relic has been stolen right out from underneath Zeus’ nose. Eris, the Goddess of Chaos and Discord, is behind the theft and murder and the faltering powers Abby is trying to keep secret. With Zeus breathing down her neck, she’ll need to keep her wits about her as she races against the clock and Zeus’ imposed two-week time period.
Of course, this is easier said than done. Not only is she struggling with a budding attraction to a sexy lawman and feelings for long-time friend, Hermes, she’s also trying to keep everyone out of the path of a vengeful goddess while saving the Earth and Olympus from the reign of a tyrant. What’s a goddess to do when the fate of the world rests upon her fashionable shoulders? 

Sheryl has had a book in her hands pretty much from the time she could hold things with her hands. Her love of reading turned into a curious exploration to see whether or not she could write her own. Beginning with random, terrible poetry and a slightly popular reimagining of Beowulf's Grendel in her high school English class, Sheryl spent way too much time in the library, killing any chance of her becoming a cheerleader or anything even remotely cool.

Absolutely delightful book! Coffee, snark, and Hot guys - perfect combo! This is Greek Mythology in depth, at its best, at its funniest! Who knew Aphrodite was so funny and was so snarky! I loved her! This story was a great fun read! I think it is perfect for summertime because it is light, quick, easy reading and tons of fun! 

GREAT cast of characters. Of course you know them already - Zeus, Hermes, Artemus, and Aphrodite of course, and so many others but - like you've never seen them before. This is kind of like a behind the scenes look at "a day in the life of the Gods". And of course there is a human thrown in the mix, a man human!
"This is going to be the straw that tips Zeus over the camel."
"The camel?"
"Whatever that saying is." I wasn't one to pick up the local slang.

"Don't Zeus darling me, Aphrodite. You've exposed our world to mortals. If you were anyone else, I would smite you where you lay."
Smite? Who said anything about smiting? The first stirrings of real fear roiled within me."
"Smite me?"
I chuckled with what I hoped appeared to be genuine humor. "It's been ages since you've smote anyone."

"The best part of the entire re-design was the industrial coffee machine sitting against the wall. No one could go on a mission without coffee." - Amen to that sister!
 Get on board with this sooo cute book!
