Teaser Tuesday (40): My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling

This week's teaser comes from My Ex From Hell by Tellulah Darling. Seriously  if you haven't read Darling's other book Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls you are missing out! I haven't started this one yet, but I can't wait to get to it!

Bethany leaned over and hissed, 'Fake contacts and a dye job aren't going to help. Kai is out of your league, junior.'

Even though I couldn't actually kill her, I could think about it. In great detail.

{My Ex From Hell, Chapter 5}

Synopsis of My Ex From Hell:
Sixteen-year-old Sophie Bloom wishes she’d been taught the following:

a) Bad boy’s presence (TrOuBlE) + teen girl’s brain (DraMa) = TrAuMa (Highly unstable and very volatile.)
b) The Genus Greekulum Godissimus is notable for three traits:
1) awesome abilities, 2) grudges, and 3) hook-ups, break-ups, and in-fighting that puts cable to shame.

Prior to the Halloween dance, Sophie figures her worst problems involve adolescent theatrics, bitchy yoga girls, and being on probation at her boarding school for mouthy behaviour. Then she meets bad boy Kai and gets the kiss that rocks her world.

Literally.

This breath stealing lip lock reawakens Sophie’s true identity: Persephone, Goddess of Spring. She’s key to saving humanity in the war between the Underworld and Olympus, target numero uno of Hades and Zeus, and totally screwed.

Plus there’s also the little issue that Sophie’s last memory as Persephone was just before someone tried to murder her.

Big picture: master her powers, get her memories back, defeat Persephone’s would be assassin, and save the world. Also, sneak into the Underworld to retrieve stolen property, battle the minions of Hades and Zeus, outwit psycho nymphs, slay a dragon, rescue a classmate, keep from getting her butt expelled from the one place designed to keep her safe …

… and stop kissing Kai, Prince of the Underworld.

My Ex From Hell is a romantic comedy/Greek mythology smackdown. Romeo and Juliet had it easy.

  4. This sounds pretty darned cute! I like that it's not so serious -- sometimes this myth is retold in such a dark, serious tone.
