Score Sheet Summary

Eros, My Love is a very short novella, just around 26 pages. It tells the story of how Eros, the Greek God of love in Greek mythology finds the one true love he is searching for during the year he is allowed to roam the Earth. His fascination with the 21 year old Gabrielle Foster (Gabby) takes a turn on his last day on Earth, which in the end turns out to be a dream come true for Gabby.

The novella is well-written, is in the first person written from Gabby’s point of view. The one thing in my opinion that worked against the story was its short length which doesn’t give the reader ample enough time to get invested in the story and its characters. I am sure if the story had been just a tad lengthier, this could have been a really great read!

Even then, I enjoyed the romance and the ending, and recommend it to those who love the idea of a Greek god falling for a mortal. This one’s just enough to wet your appetite for more.

Favorite Quotes

He smiled and smoothed my hair back from my forehead. He did not say a word, nor did he need to, because his affection for me spoke louder than words. I only hoped Eros understood I just extended a personal invitation to share his body with me.
The primal look in his eyes expressed one single message—you’re mine now.
