Blurb:

Ryan Caulfield is a devout avoider of risk, so it comes as a surprise when he agrees to help a group of supernatural law enforcers catch Zeus (the god voted Least Likely to Keep It in His Pants). But how could he say no? He’s nothing if not law-abiding, even if it’s a legal code from another plane of existence. Besides, it all seems harmless enough . . . at least until the half-naked and all-hot immortal with wings and horns shows up.

In his century as an investigator for the Olympic pantheon, Leander of the eroté has solved a lot of cases and slept with a lot of humans. But on this investigation, it looks like he won’t be doing either. His assigned task is bogus, and the most alluring mortal he’s ever met is determined to avoid hooking up.

But the pull Leander feels toward Ryan the bartender won’t let him turn his attention away for long. Soon, he finds himself interested in much more than his usual dalliances with mortals. Now if only he can convince Ryan he’s worth the risk.

Optimist ♰King’s Wench♰’s View:

Cheeky fun.

Horny is a lighthearted romp about a gang of law enforcing demigods who descend on a roadhouse to surveil, and hopefully arrest, Zeus for misuse of power. How’s Zeus misusing his power? Nope. Not saying.

Ryan is said owner/operator and bartender of the roadhouse. He’s sort of vowed to cease and desist having empty and anonymous sex. Well, that vow gets put to the test when these demigods descend namely in form of Leander, a son of Eros. Leander is horny and persistent, though he finds this whole mortal seduction thing perplexing. Quite frankly, he’s baffled as to how Ryan is resisting him since it’s obvious he desires him. So what is the ding dang hold up?

All of these demigods are sexed up, randy as hell and they all have a certain charm.

“These wenches need a stripper, and I’m the hero for the job. But first? Need some better music. Where’s that fucking faun? Kallisto! Get your horny ass over here and break out those pipes!”

Who doesn’t love a demigod stripper just trying to entertain the masses?

If I was a betting woman I’d say this is the beginning of a series. Horny focuses on Ryan and Leander. A good level of tension between them and some moderately hot sexy times coupled with decent relationship development kept it at a reasonable pace. We do get quite a bit of demigod politics and power structures which didn’t do much for me.

The writing I found to be repetitive what with the bar towels, cutting lemons, bar towels, wiping down the bar… you get the gist. The dialogue is a bit hokey from time to time, but it is fun and fluffy.

A quick, enjoyable and entertaining read.
