What do the Greek gods do when they're bored? Because they're always bored, so humans are the perfect players in their games.Aphrodite owns love; she hasn't lost a competition on her turf in over three millennia. Apollo is on a mission to win. He's counting on it to finally get the one woman he's never been able to have. The two gods will choose their human players, and if Aphrodite can't get them together before the clock runs out, Apollo will get his way. And Aphrodite couldn't have that.
Lex and Dean are perfect for each other, they just don't know it yet. Dean is a perpetual bachelor, and a brooding, beautiful rock star. Lex is always with a man, but she'll never fully give herself up. Aphrodite has her work cut out for her, but if she can't make it work, no one can.
The gods have their own drama. Apollo killed Aprhodite's mortal love - they've got beef that's been dragging on for thousands of years. Ares, the douchebag, is forever trying to pick a fight, and trying to get Aphrodite into bed. And Persephone, Aphrodite's best friend, is the one person who Aphrodite shares everything with.
Follow the gods as they fight, laugh, cry, lose, love, gain power, and make a mess with humans.
I loved the idea for Deer in the Headlights. Bored Greek gods using humans as players in a game/bet. Fun right? And it was fun. I enjoyed the personalities of the gods and how they really didn't act all that god-like. There were some pretty funny phrases uttered by them. Loved Aphrodite's dog too. Neat idea. :-)
The writing was good and the story line kept me reading but sometimes I felt like there was a little too much going on. Meaning, too many different story lines to keep up with and I'd have liked to see more focus on Dean and Lex. I also would have liked to see a little more of the gods interfering in the game and trying to turn the tables on the outcome.
This was a fun read with several interesting story lines. If you enjoy Greek Gods and love stories with happy endings, you might just like
Deer in the Headlights. Give it a read.

She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f, ends with k, and there a uc in there. Just saying. From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics. But let's be honest, she's mostly writing.
