Review by H.B.
An ARC of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book. I liked reading Eros and Rees meeting and getting to know each other. Then being mature enough to state what they expect from their relationship. I liked how all the characters (gods, demi-gods) had a part in their lives and the revelations concerning Herma, Rees and Eros. It was unexpected but a very nice surprise especially in Rees' case. It was very easy to get sucked into this book. It was a great story and the ending was sweet. I would recommend it to anyone who love/likes anything to do with Greek/Roman mythology and a story with a good twist.
Review by Wilma Chapman
At first I didn't think it was going to be for me to read, but as the story went on I got more and more caught in what's gonna happen next..
Belinda jut drawls you in makes you part of her story. There was love, intrigue, mystery, heart break and in the end your glad you read it. The book was so tastefully written.
Review by Light
I've always been obsessed with mythology and this book is a gem. This is a wonderful story very well written, whose characters are beautifully developed, I could imagine them perfectly clear in my mind and the things they had to go through to find themselves. I couldn't put this book down and every situation surprised me, especially when the truth about Rees is revealed. I totally loved it and can't wait for the next book! Hopefully it will be about Herma *winks* . *I received a copy from the publisher in return for an honest review*
Review by Karynn
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. For me, this story was the perfect mix of drama, humor, cruelty, jealousy, love, and sex…just as the Greek gods--and their human descendants--would have wanted it. Belinda McBride’s twists on Greek mythology made it even more enjoyable, definitely renewing my youthful interest in mythology. Belinda showed me gods who are real, appealing, flawed, and as human as the rest of us. Eros and Rees are both likeable MCs. They’ve had to overcome trials and tribulations in the past and have to do so again in the present as they come to understand, accept, and love each other. “Gods, what a dysfunctional family!” ROTFLMAO. My favorite line in the story. More of this family, please! I’d especially like to read about Herma finding love. And I’d like to follow Ares’ adventures to find out whether he redeems himself in his new identity.

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. 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.

Review by Divine Magazine
Its very well written, and flows wonderfully.at a steady pace. I didn't spot a single spelling error.
And I got the whodunnit wrong too! I LOVE being proven wrong, I really do!
It's the first I have read of this author and I would like to read more. This book is billed as book one in the Aphrodite Project. I'd love to be able to follow the series, because I have no idea who might be next. Whether someone else gets a story, or Eros and Rees return for more. I really don't care, I still want to read them.
Review by The Romance Reviews
This story possesses it all: love, betrayal and hope. This story moved me both from a character perspective as well as a plot development. My heart hurt as Ms. McBride punches her characters in the gut over and over. For those who enjoy Greek tragedies, this is the one for you. The reader's emotions are dragged through a flogging with steel tips.
Review by The Picky Bitches
The focus of this book is the love story and it is simply beautifully done.
This is listed as book one of the Aphrodite Project. I’m sure we’ll be seeing some of the wonderful supporting characters moving to the fore in later books. I look forward to them!
Review by Pansy Petal
This was a fun story. It was your basic love story between a couple of guys who fell instantly in lust followed quickly by love. Just because one is Eros – the God of Love – is beside the point. He still has an interfering mother. Okay, so she is Aphrodite. Wait until his dad Aros – God of War finds out! All these Gods and Goddesses popping in and out of the story, meddling er, helping all the time. It made for an entertaining story.
