*I received this book from the Author in exchange for an Honest Review*
This book follows "Ryder" Mason. A girl who's not as normal as she thinks, with a best friend just as much an outcast as she is, and the two hottest new guys at school (Ollie and Ari) wanting to date her.
I will begin by saying that this book has a lot of editing errors in it. There were several times I had to go back and reread to make sure I'd read correctly and then let my brain replace what needed to fixed. This book can witout a doubt use an editing overhaul.
However, despite the amount of errors I noticed within the work, the story itself is amazing. I love the topic of Greek Mthology and when you have two hot gods taking precidence in a story, I'll definitely read it!
The contrasting differences between Ollie and Ari don't just stop at their looks, it goes further to include that even personality wise, the two are polar opposites in everything. Ryder is pretty much your typical outcast girl. Emotional, broken, petrified, and despite having her best friend Junior, she's pretty much alone.
Junior I found to be quite an amusing character. I'd like to see more of him in upcoming books in the series.
Even with all the errors, I found the story engaging, and was absolutely drawn into the world Taylor built for Ryder. The sex scene, there's only one, isn't as steamy as some will like, but it's an emotional scene and one I found myself smiling through. The reader will definitely feel the electricity flowing between Ryder and her boys and will have a hard time figuring out who to root for.
I think anyone that enjoys Greek Mythology, Romance, and stories about people discovering their true worth, will enjoy this book. I know I did and I look forward to getting to read The Curse of Betrayal, the second book in this series.
While I want to give this book a 5, there are just too many errors to overlook. If the author gets them corrected I will adjust my rating. For now though...
I give this book 4 of 5 paws

-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
