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.

My Review:

Finally. After having read this book a couple months ago, I’m finally ready to review it.

If you have not read the Covenant series (the series in which The Return is based on), then go read those first. JLA says you don’t have to read the Covenant series to read The Return (and you don’t), but trust me when I say you will get more out of this book if you’ve read the series it stems from. Please. Trust me.

That being said, I am SO glad to be back in this world. I’ve missed Seth so terribly and I really just want to see him happy. And with the way things leave off at the last book in the Covenant series, Seth is anything but. So I was ready to delve into his new story line. And I was not disappointed.

I fell in love with the plot and the story line itself. I fell back in love (maybe even more so in love) with good ‘ol Sethie and the characters from the old Covenant series. However…. I can’t say I completely fell in love with Josie. Maybe it has more to do with the romance that of course comes to fruition in the book between her and Seth, or maybe it has to do more so with her as a person, I don’t know. But something wasn’t selling Josie to me. Like I said before, I was more much interested in Seth alone as a character and the plot line surrounding Josie, not so much the “relationship” that spurs on kind of quickly between the two. And again, it could be because I love Alex from the Covenant series so much so reading a character like Josie just doesn’t do it for me, or it could be any of the other reasons I’ve stated above. Either way, something was lacking in Josie’s character for me to fully love her.

Other than that, I really enjoyed this book. I’m willing to read on. Because, I mean, it’s Seth. Am I right?
