Thursday Book Review


My Goddess, does Pea Chamberlain ever need a makeover! Her shoes, hair, clothes, makeup are all disasters, especially if she wants to attract über-sexy fireman Griffin DeAngelo at the firemen's masked ball. And who better to coax Pea out of her pod than the Goddess of Love, who she invokes when she gets her hands on a book of enchantments.
Sure enough, Venus works her magic on Pea, which is what she has been doing for eons—helping others find love. But who will help the Goddess of Love when she finds herself falling head over heels for the same sexy fireman she is trying to land for Pea? Could it be that Venus needs a love makeover herself? Check out the fireworks when the Goddess of Love unexpectedly loses her heart...


An utterly charming story!

I had my doubts because the premise was the Goddess of Love, Venus, found herself attracted to the very man her mortal charge desired.

But I can honestly say this story was not disappointing! I laughed, and I cried. I rarely vocally acknowledge humor but this one made me giggle several times. The bantering conversations and Venus herself were so lighthearted, but meaningful it was next to impossible to put this one down.

Pea Chamberlain is a woman with miserable self-esteem issues. Once the Goddess of Love is invoked to help her, it's only a matter of time before the real strength she'd been unable to encourage on her own shines through. Add in the Fire God, Vulcan, Venus's husband who sees so much of his own discordant history in the shyness of Pea, and he's smitten.

A Goddess, a God, and two mortals. Mayhem ensues. If you want a tale of real love, of real sacrifice for that love, and enough humor to warm your toes, then this is a definite recommended read.
