Poseidon's Catch

Poseidon's Catch - Susan Hanniford Crowley My review cross-posted from Joyfully Reviewed: http://www.joyfullyreviewed.com/new-reviews/poseidons-catch-by-susan-hanniford-crowley

After centuries of having a countless number of women in his bed, Poseidon yearns for the one thing he has never had: real love. With the help of Aphrodite herself, Poseidon finds himself in Cancun where he meets the woman of his dreams. The problem is, Mila’s a mortal with a secret. One that could end their time together before love has a chance to bloom.

I never tire of reading a new spin on the Greek gods of old. Susan Hanniford Crowley starts Poseidon’s Catch off with a bang, giving the gods of legend all flashy personalities. Unfortunately, everything about Poseidon’s Catch was flash-in-the-pan. The story was crammed with multiple plot threads that were rushed, giving Poseidon’s Catch a choppy feel. I never felt that I truly got to know Mila or Poseidon, which was a pity because they both had potential. Poseidon’s Catch is a story that would benefit from being at least double, if not triple its length. It’s erratic and lacks emotional impact because of this. The pity of it is, there’s potential within the madness that is never capitalized on. Ultimately, Poseidon’s Catch simply wasn’t the story for me.
