Being the Greek god of love doesn’t mean you believe--or want--anything to do with that sappy emotion. Sure, Eros runs his matchmaking business, Made in Heaven, but finding his own love has never been part of the equation. When he spots the sweet baker who works across the street, he vows to match her with someone else before she stirs his sullen heart.
Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. What she needs is Mr. Right Here, Right Now, and this so-called “Greek God” she’s heard is on the rebound sounds like the perfect kind of distraction. But picking up the bitter workaholic is easier said than done…especially when he seems unreasonably determined to match her with someone else.
Can a woman looking for love—and the matchmaking god who wants her to find it with someone who isn’t him—have a shot at a happy ending? May the best god—or mortal—win.

Giggles, Greek Gods, and Golden Arrows (4 stars)
You'd think the Greek god of love would be really lucky at finding one of his own. Unfortunately, Eros has had really bad luck in his romantic life which is making him really unpleasant company for his fellow dieities. When Annie Landon, the baker at the dog bakery across from his matchmaking business' office, crosses his path he makes it his mission to help her land the guy she's interested in. But what if the guy she thought she wanted isn't who she thought he was and the matchmaker trying to help her make a match is the very thing she's needed all along?
Chick lit fans fasten your safetybelts. This one has plenty of elements you're sure to love from the businessy people and hot spot bar they all seem to hang out at, to the giggle inducing moments that lighten the romance it's a fluffy kind of read. Eros is charming—what else do you expect from a Greek god?—and his fellow gods dieties make an interesting group of secondary characters perfect for sequelization. Annie is okay, I personally had a hard time finding her relatable and that always makes it harder for me to fall in love with a book.
Lots of misunderstanding and some naughty scenes that'll have your hair standing on end keep it tightly paced as Annie and Eros find their way to a happily-ever-after. TALL, DARK, AND DIVINE is just the sort of chuckle inducing, quickie romance that readers could savor at the end of a rotten day at work. If you love Tina Folsom's Out of Olympus series you're sure to enjoy it!
