Gods Behaving Badly

he twelve Greek gods of Olympus are alive and well in the twenty-first century, but they are crammed together in a London townhouse -- and none too happy about it. For Artemis ( goddess of hunting, professional dog walker), Aphrodite ( goddess of beauty, telephone sex operator), and Apollo ( god of the sun, TV psychic), there 's no way out -- until a meek housecleaner, Alice, and her would-be oyfriend, Neil, turn their world upside down.
When what start as a minor squabble between Aphrodite and Apollo escalates into an epic battle of wills, Alice and Neil must fear not only for their own lives, but for the survival of umankind. Nothing less than a true act of heroism is needed -- but can hese two decidedly ordinary people replicate the feats of the mythical eroes and save the world?

There was an interesting ojourn in the underworld and with what led up to it and all that transpired there, I became caught up in anothe tory and the people ( gods, deitie, and mortals) in it.If this is on your reading list, I recommend tackling it.

Marie Phillips does provide a funny take on what life ould be like for the fading Olympians: slummy home in London, imbalanced relationships, lots of time spent plotting revenge.

And my nipples got a little hard.Sorry, all of Aphrodite 's phone sex got me a little excited.This book is no ridiculous, and even clever, and I 'm insanely jealous that this is Marie Phillips' first book.

I kne how meek and quiet the both of them were.
