Summary

If you have to be stuck in a curse with monsters, they might as well be sexy monsters.

When I answered an ad for a caretaker at Saint Mark’s Sanctuary, I thought I’d be dusting chandeliers and polishing floors. I didn’t expect to be tricked into a curse, going into debt to a monster, and being forced to take a self-paced “let’s learn magic” course so I can fix a 2,000-year-old problem.

And that monster? Not your ordinary, everyday beast. He has hooves, and horns, and fur on his legs. But you know where he doesn’t have fur? Yeah. There. Which is fine. Except he doesn’t wear pants.

Nothing at Saint Mark’s is exactly what it seems. The entire inside is magic, the hallways upstairs are nothing but parties from the past, and the super-hot guy who lives in the dungeon? Yeah. Not human.

My name is Pie, and all I want is to be a normal girl with an average life. I refuse to get stuck in this curse. I refuse to learn magic to break it. And there is no way in hell I will fall in love with a monster. Famous. Last. Words.

It’s brilliant!

Damaged Gods is BRILLIANT!!! Nothing is as it seems inside the magical walls of the Sanctuary in this amazing PNR romance. It’s an intriguing and exciting mystery suspense with fantastic, smart mouthed characters who also happen to be hot, and sexy, with lots of sizzling chemistry between them.
KC Cross/JA Huss’s imagination and storytelling blows my mind! Her wonderful worlds are a joy to get lost in again and again. They’re certainly not one time only read books that’s for sure. I absolutely loved it!

Delightful

The story draws you in slowly, the characters developed slowly and the end has a twist I never saw coming, and that was a nice surprise. There's a lot of story and very little sex. But saying that the story is beautiful and well worth listening to.

Brilliant!

Five stars are not enough for this world of Gods and Monsters. K. C. Cross, aka JA Huss, nailed it again. I'm not a fan of PNR reads, but again Huss is writing it, and look at that cover, how could you not be intrigued.

This world was magical, fun, and fascinating. I didn't want it to end. I got so lost in it that after I finished, I had to grab the audiobook and get lost in that too because, Duh! Jason Clarke and Hathaway Lee, made this world come to life. They made you feel as if you were experiencing the words they were reading. I love it when an author and narrator can do that. Bring a book so alive!! I can't wait for book two!

Deserves more than 5 stars.

Teehee! Been waiting for this 😁
Woah. 🤯 I need the next book. I don't even know what to say other than this was amazing and I'd give it more than 5 stars if possible. Couldn't not finish listening in one go. Jason and Hathaway brought the characters to life imo.

MONSTERS & MAYHEM.. DONE BY A MAESTRO STORYTELLER💕

What a fun fantasy/paranormal world twenty five year old Pie gets trapped in.. a curse, magic, monsters, a ring, an Eros, potions, Gods, myths, spells, and mysterious strings. One of the strings Pie unwittingly walks into is becoming trapped in St. Mark’s as it’s caretaker.. and bound to a hoofed horned sexy Satyr Chimera monster called Pell. And, with the help of Tomas another ‘strange’ resident trapped in The Sanctuary for 2,000 years, Pie slowly settles into her strange new role and its bizarre rules.. and into the ever-changing even stranger house. But Pell…..??, well he’s a whole other wonderfully weird story.

The intrigue and outstanding multi-layered world-building by KCK (aka JA Huss) is absolutely phenomenal and epic. Her flawed characters draw you in as Pie, Pell, Tomas and Pie’s imaginary (or not) talking colorful sparrow Pia take you on a fantastical quest with boundless paranormal possibilities. The quick-witted banter and animosity between Pie and Pell was such fun as they went head-to-head.. once Pie had stopped screaming of course!! I’m in awe over Julie’s complex creativity and vivid descriptions and how she masterfully weaves a sweet sizzling enemies-lovers romance within its chapters. And who better to bring out Pell’s monstrous side, his warmth, his sex appeal and charm other than the supremely talented Jason Clarke who makes every book a joy 😘x.. and Hathaway Lee did a brilliant job too bringing Pie’s alternate POV chapters and characters to life.

Worth a credit? Yes, it blew by mind.. and I’m so looking forward to Book two sometime next year.. no pressure Julie.. my EOBS 😉.

Love every bit of this book!

Right from the start this book hooks you in. It has great humor, sexy scenes, mystery, and colorful characters. I love how she can write a scene so clearly, with great flow that it's easy to picture, like watching a movie. I'm in love with the narration in this book! I hope to be hearing more from Hathaway Lee, she is really quite amazing! I love listening to the awesome Jason Clark as well. I also love to hear the author narrate her EOBS (End Of Book Shit)

Torn on this one

I don't typically write reviews, but I feel like I should on this one. The writing was good, the narration was great, and it was a good story.

my biggest issues was the romance/sex stuff in the book. I'm not a prude I just don't like romances. I thought I was purchasing a fantasy novel and it is fantasy. the sex stuff was just over the top for me.

just not my cup of tea

What a crazy book

Ever time I finish a Julie book I’m always shocked. That brain of hers can go anywhere and does. This is a awesome book and the narration is great. I’m looking to book 2.

I Want To Live In Saint Mark's

Charming is hardly a word that you would think of while reading a book about hooved & horned monsters and the crazy girl who stumbles into their world, but this story charmed me. Enthralled me. I listened none stop and fell in love with each, well most, of the characters. If you like PRN/Fantasy this is the book for you.

*this is book 1 of a duet
