Therin Athan faces a choice…eternal salvation or eternal damnation.
After centuries of pining away for a love never realized, Therin’s last assignment as a Cupid depends on helping the lonely, shy Lucy Carlton. The mission’s success or failure will determine where he is transferred. He can study the heavens or be condemned to hell.
Lucy Carlton spent her life searching the stars for answers, but finds them in the form of a gorgeous man who comes in her dreams. Therin shows her the joys of physical pleasure and encourages her to try to find love. She wakes with a new found confidence, but soon her timid nature takes over and she retreats back to the comfort of her home…alone.
With only a week to decide his fate, Therin breaks every rule. What starts as a job to save himself, becomes a love that can never be…except maybe in eternity.
This novella was a fun take on the myth of Cupid. Therin is one of the immortal Facilitators (known as Cupids by humanity). His job is to help bring humans together to find love. Due to an error in judgment during a previous job he is given one final chance to complete a job and to move forward into another role.
His final task involves helping Lucy, a shy withdrawn virgin, gain confidence so she can find love in her life. While he works with Lucy he falls in love with her and Lucy falls in love with him, something that is an impossibility between human and immortal. The love scenes between Therin and Lucy are hot and steamy. I loved how this story ended, glad that everyone achieved what they wanted.
This is a fast read, great for a lunch break!
3.5 out of 5 stars.
