GoodReads Summary:
The delicious sequel to Venom and Vanilla, from USA Today bestselling author Shannon Mayer.

Alena Budrene is not just a gifted Seattle baker—she’s also a supernatural. Having survived the virus that made her transformation necessary and outwitted an attack by a Greek hero, she’s ready to settle down and deal with the challenges of living as a “Super Duper.”

But nothing is easy for a woman who can turn into a giant snake. Threatened by her unprecedented strength, Alena’s enemies team up against her. What’s next on the menu? The duplicitous demigod Theseus—backed by a ruthless vampire gang and the power-hungry goddess Hera—is determined to lure her into a glorious, and rather public, battle to the death.

Now humans, even the ones Alena risks her life to protect, are afraid to acknowledge her existence. And when the friends who once rallied around her begin to fall prey to Theseus’s manipulative schemes, Alena realizes she must act before she loses everything. But will the price of success be too high to pay?

My Review:

The story continues in this second book with Alena and her friends. She has a new villain in this book, and he's a demigod. He's tougher than the last one, and he seems to have a head on his shoulders and knows how to use it. He's stealing her friends and family right and left! And there's a new weapon to use against the super snake this time. It really hurts!

Alena not only has to figure out the finer points of being a Super Duper Monster, but she now has to figure out how to beat this all too real enemy. One that can really hurt her. And her allies are getting scarcer with each passing hour.

At the same time, she's decided that she needs to divorce her lousy cheating husband. But how can she do that when the human courts think she's dead? She needs to think about this. So what's a girl to do when she needs to think? She bakes!

Ms. Mayer, as usual, has come through with an even more delightful second book in this trilogy. I can only imagine what the third book will be like! But you can be sure I'll be reading it. I totally recommend you do too! This trilogy is one of those to read again and again, and I'll bet you'll find something new in it each time you read it.

This story was offered to me by 47North and provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am not being compensated in any way. All opinions are fully my own.
