Book Review #162 - Any Love But Mine by Debbie Davies

Any Love But Mine

Look but don't touch has never been more true...

The gods forbade her to love, but love is a powerful force. Acacia has been created purely for Eros' pleasure but discovers within moments of being summoned into his presence that he has no interest in her whatsoever. Rejected, she is banished to Earth to serve as Eros' minion with the task of promoting the blissful state of love among all those around her, a state she must never indulge in with a human being herself on pain of immediate destruction. And then comes Josh, someone whose power of attraction over Acacia is so intense she will find it utterly impossible to resist him. But is he human? Is he a god? Or is he a trick of the gods? And what would happen should they kiss?

My Rating: 4/5

I would like to thank the author for kindly sending me a copy of this book for review. Her Goodreads page is here.

I didn't know whether I was going to like this book after the first chapter left me a little confused. The book was great from then on.

I really liked the protagonist Acacia, she was very stubborn yet likeable and very unique.

I found this book really fast paced and finished it relatively quickly.

The main male character Josh was very enigmatic and elusive to begin with and then slowly becomes more and more involved in the story and Acacia's life.

The mythology aspects throughout were a little confusing for me as I don't know much about it, it didn't stop me from understanding the story though.

I would recommend this book to anyone who liked The Goddess Test or Percy Jackson.
