Author Jenna Bennett
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Reviewer: Storm Goddess
Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS
Blurb: Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right, and has gone out looking for Mr. Tonight instead. A conversation overheard in the bathroom of Dionysus’s Bar about a jilted and lonely "Greek god" in need of a quick pick-me-up sounds like just what she’s looking for.
But picking up the god of love for a one-night stand is easier said than done--especially when he's sworn off mortals forever.
Eros has been down and out since his ex-wife left him, and falling for another mortal woman is the last thing he needs. Which means a maddening desire for the woman across the street is not in the cards. Thus begins his quest to find a match made in heaven for Annie. It's the perfect plan ... if only Eros can bear to let the girl of his dreams go.
Can a woman looking for love, and a matchmaking god who wants her to find it—with someone else—have a shot at a happy ending, or will Eros's golden arrows miss their mark, for once?
With absolutely charming and quirky characters, Tall, Dark and Divine is a bundle of laughs, and a great read! Let's put it this way- you've got Greek gods. Need I say more? Yes? Okay, well, here goes.
Eros is misunderstood and often times gets into a heap of trouble. The latest trouble? A mortal that he's supposed to be helping, not helping himself to caring about. But that's just what he does. Oh, poor Eros! Even though it's a little hard to say that without giggling, becuase, well, he's a God for goodness sake! I love his character, though. He makes me laugh and smile, and how he is with Annie is, well, very swoonworthy.
Bennett's writing is smooth, humerous, light and makes for a great story! I need me some more mythological paranormal romance, more, more!
To sum it up, this book is a delight. Don't miss it!
