Product Description

Bestselling author Staci Hart brings you an addictive romantic mythology series where love is the ultimate game, and Aphrodite always wins.

She’s everything I want, and she can never be mine.

I thought my heart was too mangled to love.
I thought my soul was too sullied to touch something so pure.

I thought I knew myself. But the truth is that it’s all a lie, and she’s the only one who can save me from myself.

But I don’t deserve her.

And she can never be mine, no matter how much I need her.

What if ... the gods of ancient Greece were real? What if they were still around? What if, even though they no longer make the splash on the social scene they once did, they haven't stopped playing their games with the lives of mortal men?

In Paper Fools, the first in Staci Hart​'s Hearts and Arrows series, we get a glimpse into that possibility.

Over the millenia, being a god that no one realizes still exists gets boring. So to help pass the time, the Greek pantheon have developed a series of games. When it's Aphrodite's turn to host, the challenge for her opponents is quite simple. Pick some schmuck who doesn't have a hope in hades of ever finding love and she'll try to find a match for them, and get them together, within 28 days. If she succeeds, she wins, if she doesn't, they win. Simple.

Apollo, desperate to extract a favor from Dita as she chooses to go by these days, picks Dean, a hot, brooding artist type who plays guitar and sings in a band ... and hasn't really experience real love ever in his entire life. Was never loved as a child, has never been in love as a man. May not even be capable of it.

To counter, Dita puts Lex in his path, which seems like a strong move, but there are complications. Lex, even though she's a serial monogamist, has commitment issues of her own, and of course, there is the small matter that she already has a boyfriend.

I had very little idea what I was getting myself into with this one, but I've always had a fascination with the myths and legends of ancient Greece, love a good romance and it's by Staci, so what's not to love?

What I found was a tale that, while being told third person, is constantly shifting its focus. From Aphrodite to Apollo to Dean to Lex and not stopping there.

Do you ever feel that your life is in the hands of the gods?
Have you ever wondered what they do up there to pass the time?
Is it all just a game? To some degree, yes it is....

This book was quite interesting. It is classified as a contemporary romance and fantasy. The fantasy is based around the mythical Greek gods but the romance is in abundance! Staci Hart has cleverly weaved the gods into a modern day love story.

Aphrodite is the god of love and she is up against Apollo in the latest god games. She has a month to get a couple to fall in love, and Apollo has to keep them apart. Our modern day couple are Lexi and Dean, both with issues that won't make this an easy challenge for each god. As their story is being played out, we also get the history behind the gods and their love stories. I was intrigued by it all.

You don't have to know about the gods to comprehend this book, but you do need to pay attention to understand where everyone fits in. Once that is instilled, you can then treasure this enchanting amour.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 "All is fair in Love and War" Stars! 18 April 2017
By Imani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ok so, let's be honest. Simply because I don't know much about Greek Mythology, nor do I have much interest in it, and as much as I love Staci's work, I sincerely thought I wasn't going to like this book. Like at all. But again, it's Staci freaking Hart. By the end of the first chapter, I was more than intrigued and anxious to continue. Paper Fools is unlike anything I've read before. With a look into two different worlds at once, we get thrown into what is potentially two different journeys of love. Not only is Staci's writing style impeccable, but the stories that unfold are more than unexpected as they are liberating.

It's silly that time again; it's Dita's turn to participate in the next set of challenges. Being the goddess of love, this is practically her calling and she couldn't be more ready to go at it again as the raining champ.

"'It's been too long since I've had a real challenge. There is nothing I love more than making love matches.'"

And the objective of this challenge?

Get Dean Monroe and Alexis Greene to fall in love, and more so, get them to be together indefinitely.

And that's exactly what she intends to do.

Because Dita never loses.

Dean led a simple carefree life. Or so one would thing. Simple? That's questionable. But carefree, in more aspects, definitely so.

"He was too damaged to care about anyone, not even himself."

But then he met Lex. But not only was she as unavailable as one can be, but because of Dean's reputation in general, he had to stay away from her. Which isn't as easy as he'd originally hoped...

"Her eyes were a brilliant shade of blue and green, her skin like porcelain, and when her cheeks had flushed and her lips parted, he'd felt his do the same."

He was immediately taken with her. Too bad he just couldn't have her.

Lex had an easy life. She had everything she could possibly need to be happy. And, in a sense, she was just that... happy.

But then a person can waltz into her life and make her question everything. Dean was clearly bad news, and Lex needed to protect her heart.

But with the attraction and the look in Dean's eyes, it just gets more difficult for her to stay away.

"As he took shape on her page, her heart cracked and chipped while she wondered how someone so beautiful could be so broken."

Broken Dean wasn't as broken when it came to Lex. And all she had to do was one thing for him to come to that revelation.

"The barriers he had in place were impenetrable, and women were a novelty, unable to break in. But all Lex had to do was exist."

The dance between the two continued. But the outcome was inevitable...

"The kindest thing he could do for her was to watch her walk away."

"She felt like she'd been shoved into an icy river, the shock of the experience bringing her painful clarity."

So the questions remain:

Will Dita succeed or will she finally fail?

Are Dean and Lex truly meant to be?

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!! 18 April 2017

I don't hide the fact I ADORE Staci Hart's writing. When I started reading her books I became a tad obsessed. Like... oh my gosh where has she been my whole life obsessed.

I'll admit, I hadn't read Deer in the Headlights and aside from knowing that Staci wrote it so I couldn't wait to get my grubby hands on it and it had a hint of mythology woven into the story, I really went in pretty blind.
And came out seeing vivid, bright colors!!!!

Paper Fools was a story filled with angst, humor, steam and everything in between. It was what I've come to expect from Ms Hart but shaken and stirred and all sorts of unique.
Dean and Lex were the epitome of "wow their past is gonna cause some... ahem... issues" but I loved their parts. Their struggles. The way they overcame. And Apollo and Dita (Aphrodite) intermixing (and TRULY MIXING) just made for a fun, fast-paced story that I loved turning the pages in.
It was really a refreshingly "new" read. Bravo, lady Hart!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Gods! I loved it <3 18 April 2017
By Theresa Esterline - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm not sure I've ever read a story like this. It was like two stories for the price of one! Instead of the narrator just pulling the strings there was a story going on in the narrator's world too. You'll laugh, get chills, hot flashes, be frustrated, and hopeful! And now a bit about the story...

Dita, short for Aphrodite, and Apollo are competing. Dita to get Dean and Lex together and Apollo to keep them apart. While the story of Dean and Lex unfolds, there are several stories taking place in Olympus. Then there is the secret between Kara and Roe. Band, drama, gods, what's not to love!!

Favorite passages:
- “His goodness was always there, even when I didn’t want to see it,”
- It was like caging a panther, beautiful and dangerous — if she kept him fed, she could tame him. And if she couldn’t, he would devour her until there was nothing left but bones.
- Every scenario that crossed her mind did not end well. And by not ending well, she meant ending up lip-locked against a wall.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 original, unique, romantic stars. 19 April 2017
By Karla S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's time for me to admit something to you- I read a lot. I read more than I should. Probably 3-4 books a week on average (you do the math). Of those 3-4 books a week, 100% of them are romance (no shame). I'm also someone who loves a good trope. Sometimes though, I want that feeling you get when you read a book and you go, THIS, this is a book unlike anything else I've read before. Paper Fools, and the Hearts and Arrows series, is one of the most original and entertaining premises I've EVER read for a book/series. Ever. Staci takes the gods and goddesses on Olympus and makes them fresh and contemporary and relevant. They're deeply fleshed out characters set onto a backdrop of intricate stories and rich history. I could probably read an entire series JUST with the goings on of Olympus. But then on top of that, Staci gives her readers an entire love story within that ambitious foundation. It's ambitious (I know I already said that, but it IS) and wonderful, and the nuances that she puts into her characters truly blows my mind.

The Hearts and Arrows series is something magical, something wonderful and romantic, something that I won't forget for a very, very long time.

I. WANT. MORE. (please)
