Great Zeus! (Dalton Diaz)

Two Gods are in big trouble with Zeus. Gods will be gods and when these two taunt Pele for their own entertainment, she erupts, literally, creating a whole new Hawaiian island. But Zeus is not amused and must teach them a lesson they won't forget. Who knew their punishment would lead to finding the loves of their lives?

Oh My God (Ashlyn Chase) Rewritten and expanded version of 2009 Eppie nominee, same title

The Greek God of wine, women, and party, falls off a balcony during Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Now he has amnesia. All he knows is that they call him 'Big D', and he drinks too much and ought to give up alcohol for Lent.

Mandy and Brenda flashed Dionysus right before he fell. They're nice enough to take him to an AA meeting, and then back to their homes until he recovers his memory. Fortunately, they're not too nice to be naughty. They all agree that replacing a bad habit with a healthy one is the key to sobriety, and what could be healthier than sex? Will he come between friends before they know who he is? Will Zeus separate all of them, forever?

Bonus Story: Goddess in Training (Terry Spear) Previously published Indie, same title

In a game of the gods, librarian Lisandra, who has never been loved, is chosen to be the goddess of fertility. The demi-god of pleasure, Assarian is ordered by Zeus to train her in the hallowed halls of Mount Olympus to prove to his wife, Hera, goddess of marriage, mortals and immortals alike only need be physically satisfied to find fulfillment, to which Hera disagrees—all creatures must have love to be whole.

Your review
 Gods Gone Wild by Ashlyn Chase and Dalton Diaz is a combination of two stories. First one is Great Zeus by Dalton Diaz. Ms Diaz introduces us to Epimetheus.  Epidmetheus is in a lot of trouble for messing up Zeus’s time with a Victoria secret model.  Zeus sends him to Earth as a human…named Jack Keester.   His job, to spend his days doing penance to Zeus by doing damage control for a self centered bastard actor named Tony Woods.  Yes Zeus does have a sense of humor. Jack doesn’t quite appreciate it though.   When a woman applies for Tony Wood’s assistant job, she looks just like Epimetheus’ dead wife Pandora.   This woman calls herself Hope.  Hope is everything Jack wants. But can he have her? And how long will Zeus’ temper cause him pain?
Ms. Diaz does a great job of blending humor into this story. I liked the idea of meeting the husband to the most curious woman in the world, Pandora.    He knows his wife well and is still deeply in love with her. Seeing her in a new form apply for a job with a womanizer like Tony Woods is killing him.  I loved the imaginative punishments he thinks up for Tony. Those made me giggle.  There is plenty of hot sex too to keep me reading.  This story kept me wondering what will happen next
Oh, My God by Ashlyn Chase is the next story.   Ms Chase has the second partner in crime Dionysus.  I love the start to his story…made me break out laughing.  Dionysus at an AA meeting. That cracked me up.   Dionysus gets Mandy a single mother struggling to make ends meet as a love interest.   Will Zeus allow him to have a happily ever after.
The humor again is what really made me love this story.  I like the twist and turns this story took and Ms. Chase does a really great job of making me smile and want more from her. 
Bonus story! Yes there is a bonus story in this book.   Goddess in Training by Terry Spear.   This is another one you have to read! Since it is a bonus all I am going to say is it’s a great addition to this book and you’re just going to love it. 
Over all Gods Gone Wild is a clever blend of humor, love, and a storyline that will keep you turning the pages and wanting more of the Gods and the ones who love them.
