Review - Grounded by Rie McGaha

Rating: You Want to Read
Reviewed By: Janelle
Patty James is having a bad day. She's just lost her job, and to make matters worse, she's knocked on her butt by a couple of ill mannered teens while on her way home from the office. As she struggles to deal with her scattered possessions, torn hose and broken high heel, who should stop to help her but a man whose looks would rival the Greek gods.
Dionysus, God of Wine and Revelry, is having a field day on Earth. There's nothing he can't have and nothing he enjoys more than wearing himself out with endless days and nights of debauchery. He never sleeps with the same woman twice, rarely stays in the same city more than a few days, and has no desire to change his lifestyle. So why is he suddenly having a hard time keeping one little mortal female from invading his every waking thought?
This story was a delightful little romp through every women’s daydream. We’ve all had those moments were we feel life just can’t get any worse and you want a prince to come and rescue you. And if you are going to dream, why not dream big? And they don’t come much bigger then the Greek God of Debauchery...no pun intended.
The only major failing of this book is author’s lack of research into basic Greek Mythology. Greek and Roman names are mixed, and while they are the same Gods and Goddesses, it is generally wise to keep with only one set of names. Furthermore, the genealogy seemed to have been decided at random. Aurora (Eos in Greek) is not Dionysus’s mother in any account; and his brother Ira – as far as I can find – is a Latinized version the Lyssa (also sometime translated as Rabies), the Goddess of Madness, not wrath.
I did find myself wishing it was longer, but the romance was wonderfully whirlwind and the sex sizzled. Overall I would recommend it to someone in need of a quick read.
