🦋 Review 🦋

5 Stars

Greek mythology with a Beauty and the Beast twist. My favorite thing about this book was the Beauty and the Beast twist. I was hooked right from the beginning. The twists and turns this one took kept me on the edge of my seat. With Eros the god of erotic love you know the chemistry between Psyche and him was going to get quite steamy. I really liked Psyche. She has such strength, bravery, and heart. A winning combination for a heroine. I loved the epilogue. It was the icing on this book. I thought it was the perfect touch to end on. 

🦋 Blurb 🦋

Three unbreakable rules
Two fated lovers
And one enchanted rose 

Some shadows hide on the inside 
Gifted with the power of concealment, Psyche has made a habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. But when she stumbles upon the beast's next sacrifice, Psyche sees a way to end this savage ritual. Determined to kill him, she trades places with the virgin maiden and enters his lair with dagger in hand. Only, the beast isn't a beast at all, and he hides in the shadows even better than she does.

He's the god of erotic love, but she doesn't know that 
A millennium ago, Eros, son of the goddess of Love, Aphrodite, sought amusement in a wager with his mother. A thousand years later, it's the game playing him. He's desperate for Psyche to be the one to end his bet, but an accident with one of his arrows consumes him with lust for her. All will be lost if he can't overcome his nature and control his passions--and hers--before Psyche's curiosity seals her fate.

And learning the truth...will kill her 
Cursed by his beauty, no one has ever loved Eros for himself. To win the wager and free his soul, he'll have to earn Psyche's trust--and her heart--without her ever glimpsing his true form. Should he fail, it will be her soul condemned...and his one chance at love, forever lost.
