"Tall, Dark, and Divine" [Bagging a Greek God Series, Book 1] by Jenna Bennett (aka Jennie Bentley)
My Book Summary : Even though it's been a long time since Eros' (Ross), the god of love, ex-wife left him for another man he's still dwelling on it. Therefore, Ross' friend and employee, Ariadne (Ari) the minor Cretan goddess of the labyrinth, tells him it's finally time to get out in the world again and get over his ex. Reluctantly Ross agrees to hang out at their friend's bar for the night but he has no intention to hook-up with anyone, let alone a mortal. However, no matter how much Ross would like to deny it Annie, the owner/baker of the dog bakery that is across the street from his matchmaking business, catches his wrapped interest. Especially in her HOT outfit he finds her wearing at the bar that same night.
Yet after a blunder of miscommunication, old worries, and a determined man/god who thinks he's always doing the right thing ... Ross and Annie's lives go through more trials then they would have expected in a very short timeframe. Will they be able to stick together through it all? Or will Ross end up pushing them apart after all??
My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! This hilarious romantic comedy was one that I finished within a day and I still wish there was more read!! Annie is a sweet spitfire who is looking for love in all the wrong places. Eros is a very depressed god who doesn't know a good thing when it's within his reach until it's almost too late. Together they make an undeniably cute duo!!
I cannot wait to see where this series was headed since from all the secondary characters it could go anywhere!! My only wish was that there was a bigger bang at the end of this novel instead of how it just seemed to fizzle out. Yet I am happy with how Annie and Eros worked everything out for themselves though.
I recommend this novel and series to anyone who likes paranormal romances. Also, I recommend it to those who like new takes on what the Greek gods and goddesses are up too. =0)

Can’t have, he admonished himself.
Harry doesn’t want her.
He would. Annie wanted Harry, so Eros just had to come up with the right incentive to make Harry want her back.
She’s here now. Harry hurt her feelings. She needs comforting.
She did. Someone should comfort her. It just shouldn’t be him.
You comforted her yesterday. And received homebaked cookies for your trouble.
Some trouble. Besides, that was yesterday. Today was...different. ~ within Chapter 14
