Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right, and has gone out looking for Mr. Tonight instead. A conversation overheard in the bathroom of Dionysus’s Bar about a jilted and lonely "Greek god" in need of a quick pick-me-up sounds like just what she’s looking for. But picking up the god of love for a one-night stand is easier said than done--especially when he's sworn off mortals forever.

Eros has been down and out since his ex-wife left him, and falling for another mortal woman is the last thing he needs. Which means a maddening desire for the woman across the street is not in the cards. Thus begins his quest to find a match made in heaven for Annie. It's the perfect plan ... if only Eros can bear to let the girl of his dreams go.

Can a woman looking for love, and a matchmaking god who wants her to find it—with someone else—have a shot at a happy ending, or will Eros's golden arrows miss their mark, for once?

Tall, Dark & Divine was a nice light read. It had likeable characters, a sweet romance, slightly steamy scenes, and a few  laugh out loud moments. Although I did quite enjoy Tall, Dark & Divine I did expect more from it. The idea of Eros the greek god of love running a match making business on earth I found very interesting and thought would make it into a super steamy, hilarious read. While there was a few slightly steamy scenes, and a few moments where I found my self chuckling, overall I just expected a little more from it. 

My favorite aspect of Tall, Dark & Divine was (obviously) the romance! I loved how Ross fell for Annie so hard even though she was a mortal and not fit like a model (she's short and curvy). I always love when books have a main male character that likes girls who are different than what society tries to tell us is 'beautiful'. I loved the tension between Annie and Ross, and just really enjoyed watching their romance grow.

Besides the romance between Ross and Annie being great I also really enjoyed them as individual characters. Annie was so easy to like, I liked that she had insecurities, I felt it made her seem more like a 'real' character, considering everyone has insecurities. Also loved that she had a big love for animals, I LOVE animals so her having that characteristic just made me love her even more. I can't forget Ross either, he was soo insanely swoon-worthy! Besides Annie and Ross who are the main characters I also had a third favorite that was Dion, he was hilarious, and I am really hoping that one of the books in the future will be focused on him. (fingers crossed)

If you are looking for a book with a sweet romance, and something that is a light fun read, then Tall, Dark & Divine is for sure something you should pick up. I enjoyed it enough that I think I will re-read it sometime in the future even (: 

Pros- Light fun read, with cute romance and likeable characters.
Cons- Expected more, ending felt rushed.
