Making Over Mr. Right is the last of three books in the Goddess series. Judi McCoy does a superb job in this last book, weaving together dialogue, pacing, and conflict beautifully.

Zoe Degodessa is the youngest daughter (or the youngest in this series, it is unknown exactly how many daughters her father actually has) of Zeus, the supreme ruler of the Gods on Mount Olympus. Zoe is sent to Earth along with two of her sisters in punishment, and as the Muse of Beauty only has one year to bring said gift into people's lives. Zeus has outfitted Zoe with all the luxuries she needs to make this plan work, including a year-long stay in the Trump Towers of New York. Zoe immediately lands a job fashioning store windows within a day of waking up on Earth. Store windows streamlines into a job helping low-income women dress to impress and ace job interviews.

Toward the end of Zoe's stay with only a month left on Earth, she meets Theo Maragos, a recluse with the looks of a homeless man who is anything but. Theo is head of his own business, Marasoft Inc. Zoe is given the job of designing his home/work loft, and if she does a good job the apartment will be featured in the upcoming issue of New York Entrepreneur, her last assignment before heading back home to Mount Olympus to face her father. And it's Zoe's job as Muse of Beauty to transform Theo from nerd to hunk as well in time for the photo shoot.

It's hard enough trying to resist Theo's burgeoning good looks, but the number one rule during her exile from Mount Olympus was not to fall in love. Zoe is dangerously skirting that rule and fears she is about to fall head over heels - and she does not need the added complication of falling in love with a mortal. She will outlive him, for one, and she wants desperately to go back home and be redeemed. She misses her extended family and doesn't see how she can have a life with Theo.

But surprising secrets and hidden talents are revealed that make Making Over Mr. Right so enjoyable, a sweet read for anyone - the sex scene is fantabulous in its sincerity alone. The love between Zoe and Theo jumps off the page and warms you from the inside.
