Excerpt:

The need to engulf her with everything raging inside flooded over him with such force he went deathly-still. Get it under control. The darkness was too all-consuming, and she couldn't withstand him if he lost it. She was so delicate and easy to break, despite that elusive core of inner strength, and he had to remember at all times to hold himself back.
She was human. She was fragile. And she was about to become his if he could only control his demon long enough to keep her safe.
He shucked off his T-shirt and threw it to one side before moving forward to take over for her fumbling fingers. "With pleasure." Remember. Do it slowly.
He managed to release two more of the tiny buttons before a waft of her perfume teased his nostrils. It was a musky scent that reminded him of hot nights and seductive need, so long-forgotten that its sudden effect on his senses blasted his self-control to pieces. With a groan that rattled his throat on the way out he grabbed the two sides of her blouse and yanked them apart, the remaining three buttons flying off in all directions with a ripping pop, pop, pop.
"Oh!" Her gorgeous mouth formed into a round of surprise. He clutched at her wrists before she could cover her breasts, then released them slowly when he felt her peak of embarrassment begin to subside.
"No! Don't ever cover yourself when you are with me. I must look at you." She was solidly proportioned, with more flesh than was the current fashion, judging by what he'd seen in his brief time back here. Good. He liked it better when there was something substantial to hold onto.
His fingers trembled as he traced around first one large globe then the other. Her skin was so white he could see the blue network of veins peeking through from beneath. Her life force, so close to the surface. So tantalizing.

I really enjoyed reading Demon of Envy I found the storyline compelling and the characters pulling you deeper and deeper within in the pages. I recommend you add this to your TBR list you will love it.

The fifth novella in the Gods of Love series is a thrilling romance that captures the heart. Phthonos, God of envy and jealously has been given a second chance at life and love. Olivia is an ordinary woman whose career and charity work keep the demon of envy at bay when it comes to romance, that is until he shows up on her doorstep and rips her heart wide open. Will these two lonely hearts find love or will the Demon of Envy win?

This fast paced plot keeps readers on the edge of their seat with suspense, romance and passion. The author brings the story to life with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and anticipation builds throughout the story as the readers wait to find out if this couple will find a happily ever after or if the demon will win. The strong compelling characters are easily related to and draw the reader deeper into the story.

The attraction between Olivia and Thon is extremely hot and the frequent sex scenes scorch the reader with a fiery inferno of passion. The reader can’t help but get emotionally caught up in their story as their pain reaches and grips the heart, ensuring the reader cheers this couple on their path to happiness.

The author has created a fantastic and sexy romance with her own special and sensual spin on the Greek myths. The story was enjoyable, passionate and entertaining, though I do wish it had been longer because I wasn’t ready for it to end.

The idea and inspiration behind this book (and the series) is truly unique; an interpretation of Greek mythology. I enjoyed this story, and I would love to read the others!

Phthonos was very interesting to read. He played host to arguably one of the worst emotions in creation (Envy), and yet he needed and wanted so desperately to be loved. I cannot imagine a more tortured hero for a story!

Liv was a little trickier to read. She started off being somewhat of a shut-in, also tortured by events that occurred in her past, but as soon as Thon enters her life, she immediately reverts back to, what I assume, was her former self before the horrific event happened to her. I personally would have liked to read a little more transition between the two Olivias.

And the love scenes. My goodness! They were HOT and sprinkled throughout the story in juuuuust the right places! While some of the vocabulary during the scenes was very technical, I felt she did a great job delivering, and showing just how much Liv and Thon love each other!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tortured Hero, Compelling Storyline Make for an Engaging Read! 27 June 2014
By J. Faltys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Jennifer Lynne's Gods of Love series continues to enthrall and excite in this fifth installment in the series. This installment has the trademark eroticism and steamy sexual encounters prevalent throughout the series but amps up the emotional intensity as these two individuals have pasts that they're fighting against in order to make a future. It's a rocky journey for these two, one that made my heart ache, but one that was well worth the ticket.

Thon is the God of envy and deals with this emotion at every turn which makes him the quintessential tortured hero as he fights to keep his demon side at bay. He's been sent to the mortal realm for redemption but he just wants to be happy. His introduction to the equally tortured Olivia changes his future irrevocably as his love for her leads him astray and very well might send him back to Hell. It will take a higher power to save both of them though and kept me on the edge of my seat willing their HEA to fruition. I adored Thon and his desperation in simply wanting to be loved. He was supportive of Olivia and accepted her completely, issues and all, as a kindred soul. Not to mention he's super sexy too!

Olivia's past is mired in pain and abuse and an event she'd like to forget completely. Unfortunately, the pain won't go away and leads to panic attacks which she keeps at bay with an orderly life surrounding home and her charity work. It's a lonely existence that welcomes her nightly dreams of a sexy stranger. When the dream becomes reality her life turns exciting and no longer allows her to hide. Her love is the only thing that can save Thon but also puts him and their future in jeopardy. It will take all her strength to bring him back to her in an ending that kept me on the edge of my seat. Olivia is a character that's easy to relate to as she's not glamorous and has lots of emotional baggage. Though her healing isn't fully achieved by story's end there's a sense of hopefulness for these two in their mutual support that was heartwarming.

Ms. Lynne has crafted a series that's intriguing in its premise and its compelling main characters. She deals with the heavy emotional issues in a believable and thoughtful way, never giving easy answers. The Gods that inhabit this world are multi-faceted and their interactions with others engaging. The sexual interludes are super steamy and nicely spaced throughout the story. Though this is the fifth installment it's not necessary to have read the others to enjoy and become fully immersed in this one. But with a series this wonderfully crafted, why wouldn't you want to read the entire series!?!
4.0 out of 5 stars 4 hot and steamy stars!!! 19 May 2015
By Caro Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Read for Book Fancy Blog. Well this is a hot little number and it gets into it right from the start….and carries on…and is very descriptive! In short I loved it!

Thon is the God of Envy and Jealousy, he has been in Hell (literally) but has been given a second chance at life and love.

Olivia (Liv) has had a bit of a hard time in her past and has closed herself off from the world. She has been having naughty dreams involving Thon for a month so when he turns up on her doorstep it is a bit of a shock for her…..one she gets over quickly when her clothes start to come off!!!

There were some lovely lines in here ‘2 halves together at last’ and ‘you bought me back from a place where nothing is everything and everything is nothing’ and some lines that made me nervous giggle (well he is a bazillion years old so not down with the lingo!) ‘your pussy is glistening with sex fluids’ but this is a hot, steamy story and I really liked it, so much so that I hope to read the other books in the series.

This is book 5 in the Gods of Love series, each novella is standalone and can be read in any order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Sinfully Delightful Story 27 May 2014
By D. Krieger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely love the concept of how destructive and tangible Envy can be. How a prank meant to inspire jealousy can backfire into pain and disruption. I also love the fact that Olivia isn't your cookie-cutter curvy size 0 heroine. She's a normal sized woman with real self esteem issues.

Once again, Ms. Lynne has taken touchy and sometimes painful subjects, and weaved them into a plot that draws a reader in. Issues aren't quickly forgotten in the heat of passion, nor do the gods in her stories wave a magic hand that fixes everything. At the end of this story, we are left knowing there will still be some emotional healing that needs to be done on both sides, but confident they'll get through it all.

This series is one of the few that I've read every book to date, and I'm left hoping there will be more and looking forward to the next work she puts out. The dedication she's inspired in me as a fan, as well as the delivery in Demon of Envy is what makes this a Must Read!
4.0 out of 5 stars Well written and easy to believe characters without an unrealistic sense of an odd couple.... 16 July 2014
By Rabid Readers Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Can you save a person with sex? This is the question posed by “Demon of Envy,” the fifth “episode” in the Gods of Love Series. Liv is a fluffy girl who was traumatized by her former boyfriend and generally insecure about her attractiveness level who hasn’t had sex in a long time and Thon is the Chippendales toned, penile enhanced god that has eyes only for her. This, my friends, is erotica.

I am going to give Lynne credit for not using any of the time-worn clichés in the sexual novel pantheon. This is an author giving the reader straightforward sex that is hot, raw and pretty well written. I’m no erotica expert but the encounters had an urgency that these sort of written scenes sometimes lack. These are characters we believe want each other and they want each other badly. When Thon’s insertion into Liv’s life extends outside of the bedroom, she’s not sure she really wants him there and that’s where Lynne gives readers an extra level of conflict that given the characters presented make sense in their storyline.

We don’t have as strong a sense of the character that is Thon as we do Liv. Perhaps his character was better outlined in a previous book. What is presented works in the scope of this 55 page novella. He and Liv are together not just to heal her but also to heal him. Though the fifth book in the series, “Demon of Envy easily stands alone.

“Demon of Envy” is straight up self-indulgent girl porn. If you like erotica, you’ll like this novella. Pick it up today.
