Page Count: 119
Book Description:

Syrinx pulled a fast one on Pan to escape his raging lust. The God of Chastity wasn’t about to break her vows and succumb to his temptations. Transported to the twenty-first century, she runs a florist shop – fulfilling her fake, mortal life. Until the breathtaking Parker Thomas hires her to decorate his grand estate for a gala. Five hundred roses? Easy enough. Except Parker makes her feel things she can’t ignore…As the God of Fertility, Pan is used to maidens flocking in droves to his pastures. So when Syrinx denies him, he’s determined to win the one that got away. He poses as a mortal to get close to her, but he doesn’t count on falling hard for his conquest – hard enough to make a life and stay.

But Syrinx is falling in love with a man that doesn’t exist. Can Pan hide his identity forever, or will the truth tear them apart?

My Thoughts on the Book:

First off, I have to say that I enjoyed this book. This book is definitely  a page turner.   I was sucked into the story from the beginning.  I found myself hoping for a happy ending.  I was rooting for Pan very early on.   I love that the characters were able to grow and become better.  So this book appealed to me on so many levels.

With that being said I did have some issue with this story.   I wanted so much to like this book more than I did because the synopsis was so interesting.  I think there should have been more mythology in it to round out the story better.  I also felt that the storyline with the butler should have been expanded on.  This story has all the elements to be a truly amazing read but the author didn’t achieve the depth that I like to see in a book.

Overall this book I feel will appeal to a lot of readers.  If you are looking for something short and to the point than this is the book for you.  I personally liked the book but I didn’t love it.  I just felt the book need more but I do suggest that you check it out for your self!
