Arik is such a predator. Condemned by the gods to live for eternity without emotions, Arik can only feel when he’s in the dreams of others. Now, after thousands of years, he’s finally found a dreamer whose vivid mind can fill his emptiness.
Dr. Megeara Kafieri made a reluctant promise to her dying father that she would salvage his reputation by proving his life-long belief that Atlantis is real. But frustration and bad luck dog her every step. Especially the day they find a stranger floating in the sea. His is a face she’s seen many times... in her dreams.
What she doesn’t know is that Arik has made a pact with the god Hades: in exchange for two weeks as a mortal man, he must return to Olympus with a human soul. Megeara’s soul.

Okay, so here’s a little bit of confession time. I haven’t read this book, shocker, not really, but still, it’s that I just can’t.  It’s truly become, like, my kryptonite of books in the series.
I say this, because unlike a few that are to come (I think, it’s actually only one) I have tried to read this book like....fuck knows how many time, the last one worked better than this time I tried to read it. At least with that last read I read a few chapters of the book, rather than this one where I just stared at the first page pretending to read it.
Like really, when I finally figured out what the hell I was doing it nearly had me in tears. I was getting funny looks from my children—and they live with me, and know how odd I truly am.  

Now I can’t give out point by point reason as to why i didn’t like the book, though mostly it’s because the female character annoyed me to much off the bat, and the male character...I don’t know but there was just something a bit, skeeve about the whole reasoning behind everything, that too and two of the side characters....I don’t know, but it was gearing up to be one hell of a reded faced moment, and maybe I’m just not comfortable with suck flat out embarrassments in the characters.
Ha—maybe that’s why I can’t fully get into BDSM isn’t a lot of that about humiliation?

Still, it might actually be a good book to have as this story sorta slides into another, but I just....I just coudln’t read it I couldn’t find anything in either major characters that made me want to know what happened and how they got there. hell I couldn’t even feel a need to flip it forward and check it all out. it just....
Just unappealing to me. but that’s just me, I’m sure a lot of people would probably like the characters and the idea around the book, I just...didn’t.
