A top male model, Rayne Everest lived a life anyone would envy. Letting his arrogance get away from him and slapping one of the nine Gods of Chaos probably wasn't his smartest move. His beauty and wealth taken from him, he's dumped on the streets with no idea how to survive on his own, and only thirty days to learn his lesson. When Dante Luca finds him hiding on a construction site, Rayne only intended to use the big Italian for a place to stay and food in his belly. When he finds himself falling hard, he's faced with a whole new set of problems, though. He doesn't intend to give up his luxurious lifestyle-a life Dante wants nothing to do with. Rayne has never had so much to lose, but how will he choose between the man he loves and the life he desires?

Who let the Gods out?
This unique re-telling of Beauty and the Beast a-la Beastly style was a fabulous, fun read. This is the first in the Gods of Chaos series and what a great beginning. What happens when you insult one of the nine Gods of Chaos??? He bitch slaps you! Learn your lesson, get your life back, if you don't then you are S.O.L.
Rayne Everest has it all; good looks, money and fame, and the arrogance that goes with it. When he slaps Gordost, one of the Gods of chaos, he has messed with the wrong God. He awakens to find that everything has been taken from him, he has no money, and his good looks are gone, he feels like has world has ended.
Dante Luca is a hard working blue collar owner of a construction company. When he finds Rayne squatting in one of his houses, beat up and hungry, he shows compassion that Rayne has no concept of and takes the smaller man home with him. Dante doesn't know where this protective streak towards Rayne came from but he can't just turn his back on him.
With a God, a jealous foreman, and time against them, things don't look good for Rayne and Dante.
I have to say I was surprised by how much fun this book was to read. There is quite a bit of humor that I wasn't expecting. Rayne Everest should have been one of those characters that are easy to dislike and you feel that he is getting what is coming to him. But as you get further into the story, Rayne's vulnerability really comes to light. It makes understanding his actions in the beginning a little easier and makes him a much more sympathetic character.
Dante has to be the nicest guy in the world. He is the perfect man to show Rayne that you don't need all of the material things to make you happy. There is a couple of troublemaking secondary characters that added drama to the story but I think they are going to get theirs in the end. There are also several twists, turns and surprises that made the story very entertaining. If the rest of the stories are anything like this first one, I say, let Chaos reign.
If you like hot sex in the cold rain, interfering Gods and stories of second chances then you need to pick up DEVIL DID GRIN.
