Kyra and her sisters are sent to earth from Olympus to see if they have what it takes to stay goddesses or if they will be mucking out the stalls on Olympus for the rest of eternity. Kyra is the Muse of Good Fortune and is sent to Las Vegas, it ought to be easy to inspire good fortune there. Just one more thing, no falling in love with mortals. No problem, or is it.

- I was really interested in this book/series mainly because of the mythology as I am mostly a Historical Romance reader. I have only recently become more interested in some of the 'vampire, paranormal, fantasy' type books i.e. Sherilynn Kenyon, Stephanie Rowe...
- I think it could have had so much more with a few situations, some humor, or 'tests' from the Gods. All things which I kept thinking I'd read about but never did. Kenyon & Rowe provide much better. Overall, this was just an OK read for me, thus 3 1/2 stars.
Very light read. Not horrible, just a tad disappointing. I really wanted to care more about these characters and it just never happened for me. Still okay that I will continue to read the other two sisters' books. Maybe they will get better.
