1. This novella features insta-love that makes the speed of light appear slow. The whole relationship is wrapped up within a week.
2. Our hero tutored the leading lady in algebra during high school. They never went out because he never asked her. We are supposed to believe that this non-relationship spoiled her for all other men. "She had closed herself off to ever finding another man who measured up to him." WHAT??? Algebraically? His ability to solve for x?
3. I found it odd that the author stressed the ten year gap between high school and the present. Given that most graduates leave high school at 17 or 18, it was odd to have the heroine be 30 in this novel. Short bus?
4. Our poor leading characters have both been in a sexual vacuum with the hero having been celibate for 5 years. I guess that explains the rush...
5. We are supposed to believe that they have been longing for each other (even though they never went out) for a decade, but neither made a move to go to their ten year reunion where they could have feasibly reconnected. The hero deliberately attends a community event where he thinks he will find the heroine. He SEES her, but does not approach her because she is with some girlfriends and he doesn't want to interrupt. Is he a man or a mouse???? How does this mesh with the whole corporate tycoon he is supposed to be?
6. The obvious solution if you are too shy to approach someone in public is that you MOVE YOUR COMPANY, putting government contracts in jeopardy, PRIOR to speaking to the woman you have feelings for (but haven't talked to for a decade) on the basis that you didn't see her wearing a ring all those months ago. That sound you just heard was the believability elastic snapping.
Potential spoiler info: If you have read points 1 through 6 and see no problems, get downloading the novella and skip the rest of this review.
7. Our heroine is a 30 year old virgin. Personally, I find this overused, but having known ONE such female in my life I am willing to go along with it. Unless she knows NOTHING about her anatomy, wouldn't it be an odd decision to have sex for your FIRST time on a wildly expensive, new bedspread thrown on the floor?? No further gory details required.
8. What is REALLY not okay, is that there is NO discussion about contraception until the morning after when an alarm reminds the heroine to take her birth - control pill. A hero without condoms is a zero. At the very least, have the discussion ahead of time.
9. So, that leaves the whole gratuitous butt plug... I'm not touching that one literally or figuratively. You're on your own.
Now, I totally can't say anything else about it because I don't want to spoil it but when Aphrodite's plan for love becomes a game with Ares, the god of war, things become heated. You totally need to read this book on your own to see just how amazing and awesome it is. Having Aphrodite and Ares together, fighting over the souls and both working their magic over these humans lives makes the book so much more interesting. The human characters as so well developed that you can easily fall in love with them and then become angry when Ares interferes. Oh I just adore this book!
It isn't just your standard love story. It's a love story with an incredible twist since everything can be changed when dealing with the gods. I highly recommend this story for anyone who loves romance. There are two wonderful romance stories happening at once and it is just amazing how it is laid out. It is extremely addicting and well done that I couldn't put it down until I finished it. I've never seen anything like it before and I've already got the next one to read! I give this story five wonderfully deserved stars.
I loved everything about it even though it was this book was about Rebecca and Corvin reconnecting and Aphrodite making sure their souls unite/bond and forever being connected; I have to say Aphrodite and Ares stole the scene.
I loved the inner fighting between Ares and Aphrodite(that girl has some serious power and a wicked temper). There is so much sexual tension between them and they both know how to get each other going.
Having Rebecca and Corvin connect after so many years when both secretly wanted each other in high school, was great. The cheerleader and her tutor both now grown.. throw in mediling gods, minons and a stalker ex you get a great read which never feels rushed or lacking.
I can't wait to read book two because Aphrodite and Ares burned up the sheets and had me wanting more of them.
Robert has decided to move his business back to his hometown of Houston in the hopes of winning the girl he once tutored and has never forgotten. Rebecca can't believe her high school crush has requested she show him a large property outside of Houston. Surely he can't remember her.
I liked the two main lovers and throwing in the Aphrodite/Ares dispute was genius. This gave us two hot, sexy couples for the price of one.

I stumbled across this author on Facebook & decided to give one of her books a go.
The book is a short read and is a fab light read. There are 2 stories going on within the book. There are a number of different POV's in this book and I love how they are clearly defined, so there is no confusion as to whose POV you are reading from at any time.
The book starts off with `Ditee' (Aphrodite) and Ares and their tug of war over Rebecca & Robert. For a short story the book is well written and doesn't feel rushed in any way. The scenes are well described as are the characters and you can see them as you're reading.
There are a few (coughs) scenes of a sexual nature, in the book and they are done really well. I love the way the relationship between Robert and Rebecca develops and as they have known each other since school the relationship progresses as it should. I love the shock that Robert gets, so didn't see that coming hahaha.
There were quite a few goofy grin moments in the book, which is a feat in itself as I tend to not find funny books funny.
I haven't given the book the full 5 stars as I have a huge bug bear with the lack of use of abbreviated words. I know this is a personal bug bare but the author switches from using them to not using them quite a bit at the beginning of the book.
