Book Recommendation -- The Goddess Test

Okay, so I wasn't going to do a book rec this week.  You know, change and all.  But GUYS I READ THE MOST AWESOME BOOK AND I JUST HAVE TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT!! 

Ehm.  Sorry about that.  ;)  I finished it at about two this morning, so I'm a little over the edge today.  lol

The Goddess Test
By Aimee Carter

The Goddess Test (Goddess Test #1)

Blurb on Goodreads: "It's always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess."


I wasn't sure about the book when I started it, but it didn't take long to fall in love with the story.  Kate is a great main character, and for most of the story I was right on the same page as her.  Sometimes I did want to smack her, but it wasn't for any bad reason.  Just because I could see what was going on and she couldn't.  :)

And Henry is The Most Awesome EVER.  OMG I HEART HENRY.

At first he's kinda scary, but guys!  *swoon*  Let me tell ya, Carter has got the whole romantic tension bit in the bag.

You definitely want to pick this one up.
