Blog Tour: Tall, Dark and Divine (Review)

Well, today I bring you my review of Tall, Dark and Divine by Jenna Bennett. First here is the book blurb:

Being the Greek god of love doesn’t mean you believe—or want—anything to do with that sappy emotion. Sure, Eros runs his matchmaking business, Made in Heaven, but finding his own love has never been part of the equation. When he spots the sweet baker who works across the street, he vows to match her with someone else before she stirs his sullen heart.
Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. What she needs is Mr. Right Here, Right Now, and this so-called “Greek God” she’s heard is on the rebound sounds like the perfect kind of distraction. But picking up the bitter workaholic is easier said than done… especially when he seems unreasonably determined to match her with someone else.
Can a woman looking for love—and the matchmaking god who wants her to find it with someone who isn’t him—have a shot at a happy ending? May the best god—or mortal—win.Goodreads

Now my thoughts:

Let's be honest Greek Gods wreak havoc wherever they go. If you don't believe me, you haven't been keeping up with your Greek mythology. Yes, they do have good intentions and some not so good. Well, poor Eros is still hung up with his ex-wife leaving. Yep, he's still hung up on Psyche. Which isn't a good thing, because he's the God of Love. Eek! He's not doing his job. Now Annie is tired of trying to find the one, that she's willing to have one nightstand with Eros.

Oh goodness, at times the story is a little silly. Hey what are you going to do when you have Gods on the loose. Not like you can really stop them. However, the story is a cute one. Nothing like having Greek Gods wreaking havoc on New York. Anyways, we have Eros a broken-hearted God of Love trying to do his job, but once he start to gets to know Annie it's becomes a little difficult trying to fix her up with Harry.

I like Annie, because just seems like the typical girl. You the girl always looking for love, but always coming up short cause she's just average. Then you have Eros, who happens to be a God and finally coming to terms to his relationship with Psyche. I actually like how it almost became a near miss. Now I wonder which God is next to find love.

Overall, I did enjoyed this book. It was fun, especially with Eros trying to avoid his feelings for Annie and trying to do what he "thinks" is best. So, if you are looking for a story with Greek Gods wreaking habit on human lies, but not intentionally, you might want to read Tall, Dark and Divine. Who knows you might be looking for a God too.
