"Pure" is the third installment in The Gods series from M.A. Church. This is the story of Zygi Wyatt. He is described as big, hairy and scary. He is also a Dom. He is gruff and never been considered sweet. Zygi finds his feelings changing for one man, Mo. Mo is small, shy and easy going. Zgyi wants to explore these feeling as he suspects Mo is a submissive. Mo also known as Morpheus is the god of Dreams. He is also drawn to Zygi but he wants to be sure of Zygi’s feelings for him.
One problem that could keep them from developing their relationship is tied to something that happened in the last book, Perfect (The Gods #2). Mo has secrets other than being the god of Dreams and Zygi has vague snippets of memory that he is just not sure are real.
While Zygi is pursuing his attraction to Mo, Mo is trying to find the right time to tell Zygi some important things about himself. He knows trust is very important to Zygi and he feels awful about keeping secrets. Unfortunately Zeus and Ares have other plans and meddle as only the gods seem to be able to do. Ares is a very unlikeable character but his appearance is necessary to show how Mo has changed since he met Zygi.
The BDSM storyline was interesting and the interactions between Zgyi and Mo are erotic. I really like Morpheus/Mo. His character is so innocent in many ways yet he knows what he wants and does not want and holds his ground.
The story draws on characters from the first two books as well as other gods of Mount Olympus. The author lightly brushed on the previous events enough to have the reader not feel totally lost but I think reading all the books in succession would be more enjoyable. Overall this series is light romantic fun with a bit of mythology mixed in.
