It was almost like a side character to Harris aka Hades. The way the book was broken down like a perfume scent and the Greek mythology made it all very alluring, romantic, and mysterious. When Harris would explain scents and notes, you could almost smell them right along with him.
Hades, as Harris is known, because of his dark presence, seems to either scare people off or allure them to him. While I love this notion, I only got that from him in maybe the first chapter. After he meets Pallas, or Jude, it all kind of falls away. I'm not sure if this is good or bad.
Meeting Pallas, your first impression is he's cold and controlled. He plays this part well for awhile. He seems to go hot and cold over and over, which in turn makes Harris seem kind of lovesick and needy.
It turns into this cycle of "I love you for who you are-You should stop doing what you're doing-Im sorry, please don't go". The merry-go-round got a little frustrating, but there were also some great moments in this story.
Once Harris finally gets to peel back the layers of Jude, and they're finally on the same footing, it's a glorious thing. I love the idea of their suits and the light with the dark, yin and yang thing they have going on.
One thing I am confused about that I wish something more would have happened was Harris's mentor and his possible backstabbing tendencies. I really wish that would have been resolved. This is an instant attraction book that does move rather quickly. I feel like the story could have stretched a little more, making their love burn a little hotter and longer and giving more depth to certain parts of the story.
Given all that, I do find the characters intriguing and I loved the concept of the whole story. I was engaged the entire time and had I not needed some sleep, would have finished this in one sitting. I give it a solid 3.25*

The dialogue was unreal . They would start somewhere and end up somewhere so unrelevent that I would say "huh who says that? " or just "Why???"
I couldn't see why harris fell in love with Palas, he was not himself he was acting, he was working. Harris wasn't seeing anything of the real him just his face and body. How could he fall in love? It would have been great if Palas's emotions were shown better, he felt like a bad actor for most of the book.
The references to Gods and mythical character were too much ,they should have been at least half to be enjoyable.
But enough complaining... it's just that I really wanted to loved this book. The idea and promis of it was great but the result didn't work for me!
I enjoyed the details about scents and perfumes, it was the best part of the book.
This was an interesting take on capturing essences of what the Greek idea of Gods would be in perfume. With a romance thrown in. It was cute. And a really quick read. And not at all what I expected.
All in all, short cute ish story that I more or less enjoyed reading.
