R E V I E W ➠ Illegal Formation by Shanna Swenson

(The Gods of the Gridiron #4)

Hell hath no fury… especially if you’re Hades—the god of death. 
TE, Quillan Layton, is settling into his role as the newest player for the Gladiators. He’s embracing his brooding and dark character’s namesake. Hell, it’s easy to be such when your life is as skewed as his is. After all, he’s a single dad and the widower of a former drug addict who’s not looking for love—not in the slightest.
Though when he sees bad girl, Veda Ryan, at Paxton’s Halloween party, he might just be eating crow. This tattooed, pierced, and cynical Irish “snake-charmer” has more up her sleeve than ink, and one scorching hot night with her isn’t quite enough to satisfy the ravenous god within just dying to be unleashed.
Veda, the sharp-tongued twin of Becca’s, is an unhappy cheerleader, reluctant stripper, and passionate model-wannabe with a determination as strong as her colorfully art-clad skin. She sees the tall, dark, and delicious half-Spanish sex god, Quillan, and knows immediately that she has to sink her teeth into him, come Hell or high water, and does so that fateful Samhain night in an ILLEGAL FORMATION of epic proportions.
But Quil and Veda are in for a rude awakening. The old saying goes that if one plays with fire, one is bound to get burned and burned these two lovers will be as they fight their sizzling attraction for one another tooth and nail.
Will a devastating secret be enough to bring them colliding together or will it doom Hades and his Persephone to a fiery pit of never-ending regret?

RELEASE DATE: November 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read all the previous series books! This one was a 50/50 to as really strong heroine usually are, they aren’t my absolute favorite type. So personal preference. I think it was just a mix of the hero being very very controlling and takes a while to understand and the heroine being very strong yet vulnerable and I don’t know it didn’t mix well for me. It is the darkest I’ve read from this author and touches base on some touchy subjects, personally it’s a very touchy to me, yet it was beautiful to read and watch.

even though I have mixed feeling on this one, the author’s words are what captivates you, the form and the story line. It grips you and keeps you hold. Am so glad to have had the chance to continue reading in this beautiful series.
