Eros, son of Aphrodite, is a Greek god who lives a lonely life high in the heavens. Every night for eighteen years he has been having visions of a human woman with long black hair and eyes that glittered like gold – was she his soul mate or just a dream? One day, Aphrodite, in a fit of rage discovers that there is a human woman living on Earth who is more beautiful than she. She summons Eros to show him what she has found and he discovers, to his shock, that it is the woman from his dreams. Aphrodite orders Eros to find the woman and bewitch her into falling in love with the ugliest man in the world so that she will never know happiness. But Eros has other plans. He is convinced this woman is his long prophesied soul mate. He finds the woman and the two begin a secret affair where they meet every night and whisper in the dark.

This book is a delightful retelling of the well-known myth, but incorporating a different concept and twist to the story. Not going to go into details, because I might spoil it. I only wish there could have been more interactions between the two main lovebirds, but it's okay. Overall, I enjoyed it.
