Persuasion Curse of the Gods - Review

Heads up – If you haven’t heard of this series, check out my review of Trickery by Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington. Spoilers below for Books 1 and 2!

Persuasion, the second book in the Curse of the Gods series, begins right back at Blesswood, with Willa and the Abcurses entangled in a war with a god and their own complications.

The plot expands more about the Gods, the politics, and their world. It’s hilarious, with good world development and dimensional main characters that you’ll want to devour the book whole.

“Hugging is flirting?” I asked, my voice muffled against his back. “I didn’t start this. This isn’t my fault. It feels nice to touch you guys because you kidnapped my soul. I’m actually hugging my soul right now. This is a private moment. Butt out."

Willa Knight is a hilarious and relatable character, despite her occasional silly actions. You’ll enjoy getting to know her.

She is now an important part of their group. The brothers have Willa’s soul pieces (her words), due to which she has to stay close to them. She attends classes with them and sleeps in their rooms. I loved reading about their deepening bond and friendship.

Rome, Coen, Siret, Yael, and Aros are a close-knit group and they have never let another person be a part of their bond, but Willa breaks that wall and is now in the center, cementing them together. 

I had strong feelings for the Abcurses, it was a fact, I needed each one of them. I needed Siret’s grin, Aros’s heat, Coen’s hardness, Rome’s gruffness, and Yael’s stubbornness.

Willa’s relationship with each of the brothers is unique and distinct. There isn’t truly a ‘relationship’ going on, the guys have a ‘pact’, which makes Willa their girl-brother (and there’s a fun sub-plot where Willa takes her revenge at being excluded from the pact). I love the Abcurses so much, I wouldn’t mind being their pet LOL. 

They still have issues sharing Willa amongst themselves, and they are so possessive about her. They bring out both her best and her chaotic sides, but they balance her out so well. 

“I’m special,” I declared sarcastically. I actually was special, but not in a kick-the-gods-asses kind of way. More in the dropped-on-my-head-at-birth kind of way.

The book focuses on building Abscurses and Willa as this coherent group. The romance is slow-burn, with a lot of intense moments and flirty bantering that make you crave more of them. Their relationship builds so naturally, and I love the anticipation of them finally getting together with her.

The Gods have taken an interest in Willa and have resorted to testing them. Their world is on the cusp of changing, and Willa and her Abcurses are at the center of it all. 

We still don’t know what role Willa’s going to play in the future, but it is damn fun to figure it out! 

Persuasion Curse of the Gods is a brilliant read with, an original plotline with over-the-top characters that you’ll fall head over heels with. 

Persuasion (Curse of the Gods) Blurb:

Willa Knight: Dweller? Bad-ass? Notorious pet to five magical beings?

In Blesswood, there are rules, and someone is trying to teach her how to follow them. The only problem is Willa. Which shouldn’t be anything new, since she has been a problem since birth—something her pseudo-sister Emmy would agree on.

So it definitely shouldn’t be new … but it is.

Because things are starting to happen that have never happened before.

Things are starting to get …chaotic.

This is a full novel, 90,000 words. Book 2 of 5 in the Curse of the Gods Series
