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 inMy 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.
My Date from Hell picks right up where My Ex from Hell ended. Sophie being held captive by her dad, Zeus. He’s doing anything he can to get information from Sophie that she doesn’t have, well, information that she can’t remember. You see, she’s the reincarnation of Persephone and she can’t tap into her memories from her former life. Which is too bad, because the future of humanity depends on that information.
The entire gang is back, Sophie, Theo, Hannah, even Bethany(meh). Oh let’s not forget Kai (swoooooon!). We also get some new characters as well, Pierce (Eros, aka Cupid), Festos (aka Hephaestus), Aphrodite and Hermes.
Sophie is just as awesome as she was in the first book. She talks before she thinks and sometimes it gets her into trouble, because a lot of what she has to say is full of snark. In this book she gets a little jealous of herself, and by herself, I mean her former self: Persephone. She’s afraid that she won’t be able to live up to her former self and that Kai will find Sophie lacking compared to what he had with Persephone.
Kai…I wasn’t so sure about Kai in the first book, but Kai proves himself in this book and I absolutely fell in love with him. I know I’m not the only one who fell either. 😉
The chemistry between Sophie and Kai is even more amped up in this book (it’s that damn arrow! or so Sophie thinks….) and I think they have a world record for the longest & strangest date known to man…
The character development in this book was great. We learn new things about the characters, which helps us to understand them all a bit more, and reveal some things we didn’t expect at all. Also, new relationships are beginning to take shape towards the end of the book and I can’t wait to see what happens with those relationships in the next book.
Tellulah drops a big bombshell on us at the end of the book that I didn’t see coming and it really has me wanting My Life from Hell like Yesterday. GET ON THAT!!!
If you haven’t read this series yet but you like snarky teen girls, swoony boys and greek mythology, you definitely need to check out this book series! It’s really fun and entertaining and will bring you some serious LOLs. 😉
