~Book Review~ “Adonis in Athens” by Kat Mizera


My Review:

Paige longs for adventure.  When her boyfriend of almost 2 years proposes in a very public manner, Paige realizes that they just don’t want the same things in life . . . she is in no way ready to settle down and have 2.5 children and a white picket fence.  Oh, and did she mention, she may or may not have married a weekend fling while on Spring Break 3 years ago?

Paige decides that she wants to have fond memories of her fling, and meet in person one last time, rather than simply sending divorce papers through the mail, so she heads to Greece to find the one man that ever made her feel and want for something more.

Apollo Lakkas has been running his family’s shipping company since his father’s stroke.  Even though he finds himself working long hours and achieving success, he never forgot the beautiful American he may or may not be married too.  When the one thing he never expected happens, he knows he can’t let Paige slip through his fingers again.

Will Paige and Apollo’s off the charts chemistry be enough to keep them together, or will the reality of their lives being on two different continents tear them apart for good?  They have 10 days to figure things out before Paige leaves Athens to return home to Las Vegas.  Is it possible to truly know a person and fall in love in literally a handful of days?  One-click to find out!

I really enjoyed this series starter.  It is a perfect summer romance.  With the gorgeous backdrop of Greece, it is easy to be swept off your feet by Apollo right along with Paige.  Both characters were easy to identify with and very likable and I immediately found myself rooting for them to find a way to make it work.  Apollo’s family also adds a great dynamic, especially his grandmother, who ended up being a part of my favorite moments in this book.  While this is a light-hearted read, there is enough drama and intensity to keep the reader invested in this couple’s outcome!

5 stars and a wish that I could visit Athens for my own Greek adventure!

Paige Carter’s fling with the dark-haired, green-eyed Greek was short, but it rocked her world. Her only regret was not finding out whether she’d ever see him again before he returned to Greece.

Apollo Lakkas earned his degree and was thrilled to return to Greece to begin work with his family’s shipping business. His only regret is the way he left the sweet blonde he met in Vegas—who may or may not be his wife.

When an unexpected proposal throws Paige into a panic, she packs a bag for Athens and does the one thing she knows she must do before she can face any kind of future…reconcile her past.

The moment their eyes meet once again, Paige and Apollo feel the same spark that ignited them down the aisle. Will they be able to plan a future together or is their love destined to be nothing but a bittersweet memory?


About the Author:

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.

Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
