Book/Novel Author: Theodora Taylor
Book/Novel Title: HADES
I was born a few moments after midnight on January 1st. On my 21st birthday, my father throws me the most lavish New Year’s Eve birthday party Baton Rouge has ever seen—then he tells me I’m a woman now, and that means I belong to a man he owes a blood debt.No, not a man. A demon who feeds on my family’s pain and suffering. Especially mine.His name is Hades Fairgood. But he is neither good nor fair.He’s the twisted ruler of a biker underworld, and everything my dead mother warned me to avoid. Dirty rich, stupid hot, and merciless. There’s not even a smidge of human left in his bitter, vengeful heart. I find that out the particularly cruel way when he renames me Persy–short for Persephone and has PROPERTY OF HADES tattooed across my back.So that I never forget…I’m his possession now. He owns me, mind, body, and soul.He’s a needlessly beautiful monster who I must escape. Of course, I must.It’s just…The longer I’m with him, the more confusing it becomes. Is he a merciless monster or a wounded man in need of love? My love?It doesn’t matter. It shouldn’t matter either way. I just hope I can escape his wrath before he ruins me.
Someone is using Theodora’s name and writing these horrible books. There is no romance, the characters are unlikable and the demeaning way the women are treated is beyond! The Theodora I’ve come to enjoy was about the romance and the hero being living to his woman! Theodora if you’re out there send a smoke signal and your many fans will come and rescue you!
I always love Theodora’s books and this one is no different. The ending was a twist I didn’t see coming and I’m super excited for book 2.
Was not prepared for a black woman to be branded and locked in a cage for a duration of the book. Theodore Taylor romances are terribly bad that make them a guilty pleasure I can’t seem to quit. I’ll read part two of this hot mess of a book. However I’ll definitely be reading the reviews prior to purchase.
Possible spoiler alert****I really wanted to read about Hades and ‘Percy’s story. I know she was introduced in Waylon, so I wanted to know about how she actually got the tattoo. Hades is a next level psycho. He treated this woman like pure divine crap. Who tattoos a person while they are passed out? The dog cage was a step too far. I’m sure whatever her Dad did, didn’t equate to all this. He should have punished her father. It’s clear the Dad gave zero F’s since he gave her to Hades in the first place. I feel the author should have mentioned this was a two book deal when it was written. I was disappointed to get to end and there’s a cliffhanger. I mean really. I’ve read all of Mrs. Taylor’s stories and feel she is a brilliant writer, just mention there might be triggers when someone like Hades gets his own story. He is really dark.
Good read. Disappointed that I had to wait to read part 2 before finding out about the car accident she was in and her having amnesia. On to part 2.
