He’s forged from heaven. She’s promised to hell. Professor Maximus Kane can no longer deny his passion for his stunning yet mysterious student, Kara Valari. But surrendering to their desires carries more consequences than just violating the Alameda University conduct codes. Kara has defied her destiny. Higher directives have been violated. Now there’s hell to pay. It’s a crisis for which there seems no solution, until the explosive secrets of Maximus’s bloodline are exposed. Despite all his doubts and fears, Maximus has no choice but to accept help from his enigmatic father, which means coming to terms with his heritage and embracing a bizarre new world of gods and demons. Because somewhere in that world—in the strange and sordid secrets surrounding his past—is the key to protecting Kara’s future. Nothing has ever meant more to him than saving the treasure of her life and the fire of her heart. While earth’s lower realms seek payback for Kara’s transgressions, Kara finds a new ally in a surprising place: the Valari matriarch herself. Beneath the scrutiny of the world press, Veronica orchestrates a plan to protect her daughter by doing what she does best—shining the spotlight on her. But by her side, Maximus can’t escape the glare of the paparazzi. Can they buy time and blind their enemies with Kara’s fame? Or will Hollywood’s new “it” couple and their forbidden love incite more vengeance than they’d ever bargained for?

[I received a digital arc for an honest review]
“Because nothing can ever compare to you. This. Us.”
Heart of Fire is the second book in the Blood of Zeus series by Meredith Wild and Angel Payne. This is a continuous series, and you need to read book one before this one. Therefore, my review will be short and spoiler free.
In the second installment of Blood of Zeus, Maximus and Kara are trying to come to terms with the revelations that ended book one. The Valari’s decide that thrusting them into the spotlight will keep her safe from the repercussion of her actions. Yet this may just put Maximus into danger himself.
Heart of Fire is filled with outings for the paparazzi, some sweet moments for Max and Kara, and some explosive intimate scenes between the two of them. It’s also filled with Gods (pleasant and not so pleasant ones), demigods, demons and all the chaos that these individuals bring with them.
The Blood of Zeus series continues to bring undeniable passion along with a new modern take on Greek mythology. It’s exciting to find the parallels and similarities to well known myths and the way the authors bring them to life.
“A thousand little moments that twined our souls, tighter and tighter, until I couldn’t imagine giving myself to anyone else.”
