My Thoughts:

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for review.

I am super excited  to say that I loved Goddess Interrupted so much more then Goddess Test, although I loved both, Goddess Interrupted was even better, which doesn't always happen in a series for some reason it seems like the second book in a series is never really as good as the first or the last  but, it definitely wasn't true for this series.

Ok, so I might be going on a tad bit of  rant here so prepare yourselves. Kate and Henry's relationship is probably one of the most frustrating relationships I have ever read about. So many of the problems they experience throughout this book would have been solved if one of them had just talked to the other one instead of just assuming everything. I was sometimes yelling at the both of them in my head saying just talk to each other! It might just be the type of person that I am. I am a talker if we have a fight or a problem I want to talk about and work things out, I don't want to  guess at how you are feeling or what is going on I want to know. If I had been in Kate or Henry's situation I would have just asked to have a talk, instead Kate kept wondering does he love me, has things changed, why is he being like this? talking to everyone else about Henry except for Henry. Ok, end of rant 

I really enjoyed how much more action there was in this book, Kate was determined to get Henry back and she had to find the one person who she has been trying to separate herself from the whole entire series, Persephone. I really felt for her having to suck it up and deal with the fact that the one person who has overshadowed your relationship with your husband is the only person who can help you, how frustrating would that be. I would not have wanted to go and ask for her help, especially considering everything that happened between her and Henry, would she even care or want to help them at all. She had to be the bigger person and take the chance and I admired her for that because I don't know if I could have been that kind of a person in that situation. 

I have to admit I was excited to find out more about Persephone  and see how her and Kate interacted, a cat fight maybe? You spent so much time in the first book hearing about her and how horrible she was to Henry, how much he loved her and that Kate was never going to be able to measure up to her in Henry's eyes. She wasn't the evil girl I was expecting, ok maybe just a little evil but, not really because she was trying to help lol.

The ending OMG, I hate the cliff hangers yet I love them because it gives you that incentive and push to read the next book and the ending of this one leaves you with a huge one. I am dying to find out what happens next and I really hope that Henry and Kate get to have the relationship that they have been wanting to have, it feels like in each book once they finally talk to each o there and work things out, another obstacle gets in their way and they lose all the ground that they just battle through to get to each other. They both deserve a little happiness with each other and I really hope that they get it.

Overall, this book was amazing and I loved every single second of it. I couldn't put it down and I finished in one day. I recommend this one to anyone who enjoyed The Goddess Test, and even if you didn't love the first book give this one a try because it was even better then the first!

Happy Reading!
