RELEASE DAY LAUNCH: The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout || EXCERPT

Hello everyone! Now today I'm COMPLETELY HONORED to participate in this particular Release Day Launch. Why? Because it's my bae author JLA! I absolutely love, love, LOVE her work. 
Here's some proof: here, here, hereand here

Okay, okay, fangirling aside, I'm gonna begin now!

Goodreads summary + cover:
The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.

Book 1 in the new adult paranormal TITAN series, spin-off to the best selling COVENANT series.


It's out now so buy it, buy it, BUY IT!!

Excerpt
“Is it so hard to say her name?” Apollo asked. “I think a few minutes ago was the first time you’ve said her name since after you two fought Ares.”
My jaw ached from how hard I was grinding my molars.
“Whatever,” Apollo said, his attention returning to the godsforsaken ceiling fan chain. “Don’t talk about it. Be the best issues-boy you can be.”
I took a deep breath. It didn’t help. “I don’t have issues.”
He tipped his head back and roared with laughter. Paintings of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains rattled. “You have more baggage than United Airlines. Cross that out. You have more issues than Medusa, and that woman makes the inside of a cat lady’s thoughts seem like a calming place.”
“I hate you.”
“You wound me straight to the heart, bud.”
My patience was just about the same as that of Cerberus after someone tried to take a squeaky toy away from him. “What about the girl, Apollo?”
He dropped down into the leather chair, his large form nearly swallowing it. “It’s a long story.”
“Go figure.”
That comment went largely ignored. “It all started with your birth, so there’s something else you can add to your mountain of suck.”
I wondered if there was an anti-god repellent and where I could find it.
“We knew the moment you were born that there would be the possibility of a God Killer, since Alexandria was on schedule to make an appearance a few years later. We didn’t know who among us was responsible for your birth, but we knew they’d want to use you for their own gain.”
“This walk down history lane is boring me.” I crossed my arms.
Unaffected, he eased himself closer to the bed, kicked his booted feet up on it, and stretched out leather-clad legs. “The risk of you two joining forced us to come up with a contingency plan in case the proverbial poo hit the fan.”
My brows knitted. There was something wrong with hearing Apollo use the word “poo” in a sentence.
