I read that book and the ones after it and fell in love. At that time the concept of what Staci had written was really refreshing to me. Not my “normal” but I loved it.
Three years on and Staci has become a personal favourite of mine. A best seller. A word wizard, with outstanding books. Staci has now reworked Deer In Headlights and produced PAPER FOOLS. And omg if i thought I loved it before, now I'm downright DEVOTED to it.
In Paper Fools, Staci has intricately mixed Greek Mythology with contemporary romance and the result is downright MAGICAL! Honestly, don't let the Greek Mythology put you off, Staci has brought it right into the 21st century and made Greek gods even cooler!
This book is so refreshing, different and above all else CLEVER. Never once does the story dip or lose track despite the characters and “worlds” it follows. It's addicting and basically covers EVERY SINGLE BASE that you could possibly wish to reach as a book lover.
Each and every character is FANTASTIC. I want to be a Greek goddess. I want to be Lex and have Dean all to myself. LORD. DEAN!!! I want to live in their world. I want to be played. I want to be player. I want it ALL.
There's not a minute, of this book that I didn't feel, enjoy and love! Once again Staci has proved she's one of the best for a reason!
Let's just say the Greek Mythology was throwing me off, but I actually quite liked and it and felt it was educational, but not in a boring way and it worked for the story and it kept me interested.
Imagine if there was a higher power, it can make or help your life choices? Well the powers at be choose to run interference with Dean and Lex.
Their story is one underlying problem with love, both seem reluctant to let anyone get too close, but when they meet the attraction, the feelings and chemistry is too hard to deny, but they have too but at what costs and will they finally be willing to give and sacrifice themselves to love.
The modern day twist of the Greek God was both clever and fun, something I never expected myself to like and was pleasantly surprised.
Aphrodite may be the goddess of love except where her own love life is concerned, it is a MESS! She and Apollo are in a game of wits against one another. They each choose a human player and a timeline of 4 weeks. She will attempt to get them together, and he will attempt to keep them apart. The winner will be granted a favor from the other, and it cannot be refused. This is Apollo’s chance for true happiness, and he will do everything in his power to win even though Aphrodite never loses.
Enter the players, Dean (Apollo’s choice) and Lex (Aphrodite’s choice). Dean and Lex both don’t believe in love. Dean never tries to attain it. Lex tries, but she just can’t give herself completely to someone. So, she believes she’ll never have it. When these two meet, it’s like stars colliding. She completely overwhelms Dean. He’s never felt anything like this before. Lex feels the same way. But, each of them are off limits to the other. Lex’s boyfriend is the new drummer for Dean’s band. He swore to his best friend and fellow bandmate, he wouldn’t cross that line. This is going to be hard for both of them. As they are together more, the attraction only gets stronger. They have no clue they are game pieces being played by forces more powerful than them, but is anything really more powerful than true love?
Paper Fools is a clever and intelligent romance. The name of the title was a genius move…hearts and arrows each represent Aphrodite and Apollo. It’s really about two different relationships, Lex and Dean, and Aphrodite and Apollo. Although, each is a very different story.Read more ›
Paper Fools is a complex, multi-level story where mythology and contemporary romance converge. On one level you have the gods of Olympus competing for favors from each other, a 'game' that has been going on for centuries with different gods competing at any given time. Now the turn of Aphrodite and Apollo, with their intertwined history, the stakes are high. An unfortunate side effect of their competition is the human lives they meddle with bringing us to the contemporary romance aspect of the plot.

In this instance, Lex and Dean are the damaged souls to be used as pawns in the challenge set between Apollo and Dita. Both are artistically gifted and emotionally stunted by their respective upbringings and influence of their mothers. Both have the tendency to keep themselves emotionally distant, while Lex is a serial monogamist, Dean is the embodiment of a good time. Yet it is obvious that they are perfect for each other on an elemental level; although you can't help but question how much is due to the influence of the gods in their lives.
The narrative is told in the third person with multiple perspectives not just those of the main characters; providing insight into their relationship as well as providing details of the background to all of the characters.Read more ›
