Tall, Dark and Divine by Jenna Bennett

Title: Tall, Dark, and Divine

Author: Jenna Bennett

Publisher: Entangled Publishing, LLC

ISBN: 9781622669530


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.


Here is a little known secret about me, I love the Dark Hunter series. By love I mean that I own every single one written, on iBooks and in actual books. I was incredibly surprised to pick up this book and find so many similarities between that series and this book. Jenna Bennett wrote an excellent book book that was funny and romantic. I like books with a lot of humor mixed in and I was glad this one fit right in with my taste. I like to laugh out loud while reading! 

Annie was a a good character who was extremely approachable. I wish she wouldn't have been such a push over at times, but overall she was great, likeable, and sweet. Eros, was a little more developed and was a great character as well. It was nice to see him written as the underdog in the story. Normally when Greek gods are written into the stories, mere mortals don't stand a chance. His character in this book was endearing. I just wish he would have actually hit Harry like he wanted too. 

I liked the authors approach on mixing Greek gods into the story. Make them approachable and almost like real people, except for the drop dead gorgeous looks and the immortality. It was a fantastic approach on the story.

For me, it was an entertaining and quick read. If you like the Dark Hunter series, don't miss out on this book. If you have never liked them, you will still like this story with its loveable characters and well written humor.

I obtained this ARC through NetGalley in exchange for a review.
