Why This Must Be Read: Ares and Aphrodite are nowhere near my favorite couple in Greek mythology, but this author does an amazing job with them; keeping their selfishness, immaturity, and narcissism completely intact and not attempting to soften their rougher edges. The narrator has a very distinct voice and the dark humor of the piece really shines through, the tone really fits these two and makes you give their romance a second look.

If you asked them how they hooked up, they'll tell you they don't remember a time when they weren't. They've always been a couple. No matter where they go, what they do, who they fuck, they're together.

They could try to stop, but they don't want to. They'll never really want to.

After all, the sex is still amazing.
