Bound To The Battle God (Aspect and Anchor #1) by Ruby Dixon


When I went to my neighbour’s apartment to investigate strange sounds, I never 50841330._SX318_SY475_expected to fall through a portal into another world. Yet here I am, a stranger in an even stranger land… and I’m stranded. In this world, might makes right, men carry swords, and gods walk the earth. Within minutes of arriving, I’m enslaved!

Fun place…

How do I get home? GREAT question. Wish I had an answer!

The one person that might be able to help me is also the one person I want to throttle most. Aron, Lord of Storms, Butcher God of Battle, is my new companion. Or rather, I’m his. As Aron’s anchor to the mortal realm, I’m the one that’s supposed to be guiding him through his exile in the mortal world…

Ha. Joke’s on him. I know nothing about this place!

But Aron and I have a common goal – get home. And we’re bonded – anchor and god – with a bond unlike any other. So we travel together. We bicker. We bathe together. We fight our many, many enemies together. And sure, he’s a god, but he’s also an arrogant jerk. Brawny, smoking hot, irresistible jerk. I should want nothing to do with him. I certainly shouldn’t want to do things to him…

Mortals and gods don’t mix. We stick to the plan and ignore our attraction. Focused, with one goal in mind…

One task…
One goal…

I-oh heck, I’m going to end up kissing him again, aren’t I?


4 Stars!

This book was long…and slow but so funny!

Our Heroine, Faith, keeps hearing weird noises from the apartment next to hers. When she decides to check on the noise one night, she falls into a whole other world. There she is, in her nightgown, in a place that is nothing like earth. She’s sold as a slave before she offers herself as the anchor to the Battle God.

Aron, God of Storm and Battle, is an aspect, and he needs an anchor to stay alive on the mortal lands. When Faith offers herself as his anchor, he’s glad—or as glad as the arrogant god can be. After Faith and Aron are attacked, they escape and start their journey through the mortal world.

“He sniffs my hair again, and I wonder if he’s hard right now. Is he overcome with lust for me? “You smell bad,” Aron says. “When was the last time you bathed?” Man, fuck this guy.”

The bickering between Aron and Faith was hilarious! Faith was never afraid to speak her mind, and Aron’s arrogance made their dialogue so much fun to read. I laughed out loud multiple times. As I mentioned before, this is a real slow-burn romance. There was almost no romance until I was halfway through the book. However, there were cute scenes between these characters and hilarious dialogue, and that’s what kept me reading.
