Two men on two different paths—Eros has come to play on Earth and has found his one true love reborn but even though she is truly the same soul she is not the same woman that he loved. Eros is floundering until a new love enters his world. Rees is so different yet Eros is immediately drawn to him and feels so much for the man in so little time. What will happen when Eros finds out that his mother had a hand in Rees entering his life. Will that be the end of his love for Rees or will fate find a way to keep these two together?

This book will take you on a wonderful adventure.  The author does a wonderful job of intertwining mythology and romance into this story.  She has made the Gods into beings that we can all relate to.  I am a big fan of mythology and enjoyed the way this story was written. It moves along at a nice pace and the characters are well written.  We are treated to the other side of the Gods. Seeing what is behind the facades that they show the world. Eros is so much more than the playboy that everyone thinks that he is and when we see that real person and the troubles that he goes through it pulls on your heartstrings.  And we can only hope that his romance with Rees will save him. Rees is a good man with problems of his own to deal. The two are wonderful together but must fight their way to a happy ending. Will their love be enough? Can they find the trust in each other to try for love once again?

I truly enjoyed the twists and turns that this author has made with the Gods and their stories.  I was pulled in right from the start and quickly immersed in the tale all the way to the end. It was nice to see Eros and Rees discover themselves and fight for what they want. Love is a strong emotion and we see what havoc or healing it truly can do in this story. As much as Eros and Rees shined in this tale many of the secondary characters made themselves known and I hope that we get to visit this world again to hear what more they may have to say.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
