Book Review: The Return (Titan bk1) by Jennifer Armentrout

Goodreads Summary: The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.

Book 1 in the new adult paranormal TITAN series, spin-off to the best selling COVENANT series.
 


I think that by know you all know that I love anything written by Jennifer Armentrout. The way she can write the stories are just crazy! That woman has talent. I loved reading The Return. Two days to read it? Yep, I couldn't put it down.  Seth has made a deal with the gods that he has to pledge his life to them. The jobs that he has to do are not so great. They are bloody and very violent.  Seth has a mission that was given to him to Apollo to help the gods stop the titans that escaped from their prison. To help them he has to protect someone and get them to safety before they end up in the wrong hands. 

The story is told in two differnt POV which is really great. I got to be inside Seth and Josie's head. I liked Seth from the beginning. He wants to make up for the damage that he has done which is his focus. He did come off a bit arrogant to me but that quickly faded away.

Josie was a very likable character. Its like you already know her and you can fall for her really quick. She is funny, smart, and strong. What I like about her was that even though she knew that she couldn't do certain things like Seth she didn't give up and quickly got the mindset that she needed to do something instead of sitting down and doing nothing. 

I can't wait for book 2 to  come out which is like a whole friggin year!!!! Someone please end this misery!!!
