The Demigod Complex (Brimstone Inc. #1) by Abigail Owens
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Publication Date: February 17th 2020
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…

“but nature in her fullness was a murdering bitch that nothing could stand against.”
Abigail Owen is easily becoming one of my favorite paranormal/Fantasy Romance novelists to date. Short, sweet, and hella steamy, The Demigod Complex is the beginning of a new series that encompasses shifters, witches, and greek gods that packs the ultimate punch.
When I saw just how short this novel was, I was hesitant on if it would be able to bring in the connection and development that I yearn for in most if not all my fantasy reads, but Abigail Owen DELIVERED. There was so much development and thought put into each page that I was in awe.
Owens beautifully paces not only the plot but the love story between our Heroine, Lyleia, and hero, Castor. I couldn’t help but not not fall in love with this pair. Watching them fight the sexual chemistry and tension between each other was a treat, and I repeatedly chanted for them to just screw already, because the tension was THAT intense, and that good.
The way that Owens interweaves her different worlds together was stunning and I loved how the different mythologies played alongside each other and found balance within themselves because of the other’s existence. Simply put, I am beginning to Stan a legend.
If you are looking for a quick, steamy, and action packed fantasy PNR, I cannot recommend The Demigod Complex enough. Abigail Owens, out did herself with this one and I can’t wait to see more from this series and what Brimstone, Inc. cooks up for us next!
