Summary from GoodReads
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.

For the fans of the COVENANT series, here comes the Apollyon! You know him, you've surely swoon over him and maybe some of you even cried at his sacrifice. Yes ladies and gentlemen, welcome SETH!
I was really excited when Jennifer annnounced her new NA novel about Seth and his adventures after the end of her first series. As also about the new heroine who by the way is really a great reminder of Alex but she has her own funny moments.
Josie lives a somewhat normal life at college until the day Seth arrives and from there on we get a helluva crazy road ride, Titans and Gods as also we get to meet some of the old known characters. Told from Dual POV, I enjoyed the way Seth and Josie got to know each other; they were both scarred and afraid from their pasts but that didn't stop them from becoming stronger.
What I liked was the constant mentions of "Supernatural" and "Walking Dead". I swear, hafl of the new fans of these series were ACTUALLY fans of Jennifer and her books! My only 'dislike' (which truly doesn't take out any of my stars) was the change of the cover. I really liked the old one too.
Overalll, I need the second book now! YES you closed it with such sweey words, BUT I must have the sequel PLEASE!
