Desperate Housewives of Avalon by Saranna DeWylde
4 out of 5 Licks
The Desperate Crew is back with a romp through resort island, Avalon. Aphrodite convinces Artemis it’s past time for her to get her V-card punched. Artemis doesn’t want any messy entanglements, has a taste for bad boys, and the sexy Mordred Le Fey fits the bill. Too bad he’s cursed by the Lady of the Lake.
Aphrodite has had her fill of Love being used as a curse and decides to give Vivienne her comeuppance. She ends up with trials of her own when all she wanted was a vacation.
Secretly, Vivienne thinks she deserves to be punished because she’s been in love with Arthur since she handed him Excalibur and engineered the fall of Guinevere and Camelot.
Gwen’s marriage to Lancelot has been in name only since 1912—a fact that’s only made Avalon’s resident evil enchantress, Morgan Le Fey, too happy.
Come along for the ride as these goddesses take control of their Fate (or so they think) and find their Happily Ever Afters.
What a Sexy, Fun, Campy Romp!
I so enjoyed the first book, Desperate Housewives of Olympus, that I could not wait to read this installment. Now you do not need to read the first before, it is a stand alone, but I would highly recommend it.
I love the writer’ s style, her dialog and story concept really kept me entertained and reading to find out what was happening next. I am a sucker for witty and snarky dialog and this book is filled with it. I love the whole campy drama feel of the books, that do have the feel of those good old Friday night shows when I was a kid; Dallas and Falcon Crest and then you throw in the Gods and Goddess aspect and you make a geeky girl happy, happy.
So in this second story Aphrodite talks Artemis into taking a vacation in Avalon and while on vacation hopefully Artemis will get her V-Card punched. And who do they set their sights on being the lucky fellow, Mordred. It seems since the fall of Camelot, Avalon has become a resort where Gods and Goddesses go to relax or take a romp on Arthur because it seems he has become somewhat of a man whore since Gwen left him for Lancelot. Speaking of that happy couple, well the grass is not always greener and Lancelot walks out on Gwen. Lancelot ends up in Morgan Le Fey’s bar and things heat up from there. Love is in the air all over the place on Avalon, we have Arthur and Gwen getting back together, we have the Vivienne, the Lady of the Lake fighting her feelings for her guard, who is younger than she is and you have Aphrodite herself at a crossroads with Ares, her long time love and father of her children and the sexy, “tattooed McBangable” Areon.
There are so many machinations going on it is fun to watch which ones work out and which ones don’t. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book, especially if we find out about what is going to happen with Aphrodite and her triangle.
I great read, I highly recommend! And I have to say I love the cover too!
