Synopsis from Goodreads

Dyletri, God of Fertility, has locked away his powers. No woman is allowed to touch him, not until he can return his long-dead lover back to life. All he has to do is sacrifice one human girl, a girl who unlocks his powers and rips his dormant lust right out of his body. Trapped by his promise, Dyletri has no choice but to watch Ismini die, no matter how much he wants her.

Yet the darkness of his calling is spiraling within him, demanding he claim the human as his. If he goes back on his promise, the energy of the Fates will cause untold destruction in the Universe. That doesn’t change how Dyletri’s begun exhibiting symptoms that point to more than just lust. How does he allow Ismini to die when she’s come to own him from the inside out?

Desire and torment spiral into something much darker than obsession, more turbulent than an addiction, and something much more brutal than a mere soul-mating. As a war is being rekindled right under his nose, Dyletri will have to come to terms with a destiny eleven thousand years in the making. He thought he’d known what path his future would take, but he’d been wrong. Now the one woman he truly loves might pay the price for his decision.

Blood Flows Deep in the Empire is the first in a series that will pit free-will against Destiny, Destiny against Fate, and love against brutal desire. Everyone likes to think they have a choice as to who they end up with, but as they rise to face the greatest threat they’ve ever known, even the Gods will learn they have to bend to Destiny’s whim to survive.

       YES!!!! Yes, yes, yes! Oh my goodness, this was so good. This is my kind of PNR read. I loved this book so much. This was like Larissa Ione's Demonica series, but with gods. The imagination and the dialogue used in this book made me so happy. I had a fun time with this book and I couldn't put this down even if I wanted to. Simply put...this book had everything I could ask for and more. This definitely is going on my favorites list.

      Ismini was a great lead. I instantly loved her and her friends. I related to Ismini the most. I felt sorry for her because it always seems like she is put on the backburner. He doesn't think she is good enough and given her fate, that couldn't be more clear. But I loved that even though she knows why she was created, she fought for herself. She didn't just lay down and wait to be the sacrificial lamb she was meant to be, I loved Dyletri. Oh my goodness, he was mouthwatering. He was also a character I connected with instantly. He has so much riding on his shoulders and has been waiting for a very long time to make things right. The chemistry between these two was explosive from beginning to end. Oh my goodness, the sex scenes were soooooo good.

      Not only are the main characters great, but the side characters are just as exciting. Ismini's best friend Evesse was a riot. When she shows up on the scene when she finds out what is happening to Ismini, she had me dying of laughter. This girl has a lot of fire to say the least. You never know what she is going to say next. I loved the push and pull between her and Zeniel. They were definitely fighting their feelings for each other in the most entertaining way. It was so much fun. I loved that the gods are thousands and thousands of years old, but they love the human world and how we are. They talk like regular humans and it made the book more fun for me. I just loved these characters. They will stick with you when the book is done.

      I love the idea of this book. Dyletri is the God of Fertility, but he doesn't want the job anymore. He fell in love with a woman and now she is dead. So he has made a deal. He won't touch a woman for eleven thousand years. He will wait until the woman that possess the right soul to sacrifice. That woman is Ismini. One he sacrifices Ismini, he will get back the woman he lost and to save Earth given the promise he broke. Dyletri is very attracted to Ismini, but that isn't even the half of it. Ismini has quite the reaction to Dyletri. They try to avoid each other, but that doesn't work out so well. But it may be more than they both bargained for. Dyletri has to fight to fix his mistake and an impending war that may be connected to him and Ismini.

      I love this book so much. It is action packed and loads of fun. The characters are amazing. They all have very distinct personalities that make them very memorable. You will love them all, especially the men. Oh the men! The dialogue was so much fun. The worldbuilding was innovative and engaging. I am going to read this again before the next book. It is impossible not to. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Everyone over the age of 18. This book is very, very steamy. A must read. Do not miss this book.
