About this ebook

When Lyleia Naiad was head-hunted by Brimstone, Inc., for her job as Executive Assistant to a high-powered billionaire demigod, she was given one directive—do NOT fall in love with Castor Dioskouri. Doesn’t matter if he’s the son of Zeus and can electrify a room with a single glance. As an ex-nymph, she possesses a unique ability—a gift from the goddesses to protect nymphs from the randy gods—to resist her boss's charms.

Or so she thought.

He insists she accompany him to an alpha wolf shifter mating ceremony, an event where the pheromones fly, and so do clothes...and inhibitions.

Goddesses save her, because Castor has stolen into Lyleia’s heart, and she’s not so sure she can hold out much longer...

This novella was previously self published but has undergone a complete re-edit. Scenes were added, things were changed, but the kissing still remains!

Each book in the Brimstone, Inc. series is STANDALONE:
* The Demigod Complex
* Shift Out of Luck
* Bait N' Witch
* Try as I Smite

Her Demigod Complex is about a water nymph (kinda sorta ex) and a demigod (half-god with Zeus for a father), which made me want to read it just because it has a pairing you don't see much of in the paranormal genre. You might get mention of them, but rarely are they the main leads. That was definitely a lure for me. Layleia and Castor are an interesting couple. Both are very old, and both carry very old scars. This book is short, but it does a good job of letting us get to know and fall in love with the characters perfectly. Layleia has been working as Castor's assistant for the last year, so we drop into the story with them already being familiar and a little in love (though silently of course). This quick story is their tipping point. It's a fun romp that I enjoyed from start to finish! The book is written in third person (omniscient) and from both characters perspectives. It features a number of paranormal characters, some otherworldly politics, some office politics, a lot of action, a good dose of steam, and a heartwarming romance. I look forward to the next book! You should totally give this one a shot too.

The Demigod Complex by Abigail Owen Brimstone Inc. #1 Water nymp Leia has worked for demigod Castor for about a year when she feels it may be time to move on even though there seems to be chemistry between them. Rumor is that he is unable to love again and she is immune to demigods...only rumors, I believe. When they go together to a wolf mating ceremony and she runs into a wolf-shifter from her past that is not a friend, well, things become complicated. What they have to deal with definitely requires paranormal abilities and has the potential of drawing them closer together or driving them apart. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? I think so Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled-Amara for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars
