    This book is a must read if you can stand books with a high “heat” content. Unlike the author’s two previous books, this one is fairly lighthearted due to the characters of the hero/heroine. While there are some common historical romance memes in use the result is fresh, funny and enjoyable rather than cliched. Yes, you will enjoy! :)

    With a play on Greek Myth, Gavin Hades is the owner of The Underworld, a gaming hell, and is seeking revenge against Percy (Persephone’s) adopted brother Nick (see previous book). Trying to help, Percy goes to this gaming hell in an attempt to reason/negotiate with Gavin and the results are not at all what I expected. The chemistry between these two is hot and hilarious and although Gavin sets out to seduce Percy as part of his revenge, this doesn’t last very long before he’s so tangled and smitten revenge is the last thing on his mind.

    Percy was not what I expected. She’s described as a “hoyden” trying to mend her ways. Initially Gavin thinks she’s a middle class girl with ambitions to marry into nobility and thus someone he can manipulate and blackmail. In reality she’s impulsive and openhearted without being an idiot or a martyr. Percy wants to to write novels and is just perfect for Gavin who desperately needs Percy’s lightheartedness. Gavin is the brooding hero type who provides the grounding and pragmatism Percy needs even while his whole world is turned upside down. Gavin surprised me too–he’s loyal and lovely to Percy and knows what a gift she is.

    You will love this book! Highly recommended!

    I bought this book yesterday afternoon and finished it at 1 in the morning. I think this is a great book and a worthy sequel to the first one in the Mayhem in Mayfair series. Do I like it as much as the first one? No I don’t but I would recommend it. I love both the characters. The chemistry they have together is actually really good and there are some sizzling scenes of them together. This book revolved around Percy’s brother who has a gotten into some trouble with Gavin, who has some major troubles of his own (pertaining to revenge). Basically, Percy has to spend 6 nights with Gavin and if she resists his attempts at seduction, her brother owes him nothing. But Gavin seriously wants Percy AND he also wants to destroy her fathers company. I won’t go into detail on that but the plot is really good.
    What I didn’t like was how fast Percy fell for Gavin. Really, after their first night, she all of a sudden realizes that she’s beginning to fall in love with Gavin. I didn’t really get that since Gavin is the kind of male hero that is troubled and has demons of his own. He’s a survivor and ruthless in getting what he wants, especially if its revenge.
    Some won’t like this book but I did enjoy it and it kept me busy for an entire day. Read it and enjoy it.

    I enjoyed both mayhem 1 & 2! If you like steamy love scenes, you’ll love this book and the story is enjoyable too!
