Gabrielle Foster never thought she would fall in love with a mythological character. After reading the pages of a mysterious journal, she finds herself enamored, yet sympathetic, toward Eros, the Greek god of love. The journal paints him as a tragic and lonely god with a selfless heart that aches for companionship. But the author is a clinically insane woman, so Eros couldn't really exist in the modern world...could he?
While working the night shift at a local diner in downtown Boston, a secret admirer of ethereal beauty reveals his true identity, and Gabrielle discovers her love is not unrequited.
Eros, My Love is a short story or a short novella at around 25 pages, not a lot of chance for character development or plot however the detail and imagery are very well done.
As Gabrielle faces a cold and miserable day wintering in Boston she dreams of tropical beaches and a hot man, Eros Greek god of love has had his year on earth and now must return home.
The setup for this story is rich in detail and feels like it could be the beginning of a much longer story, we have a pretty steamy sex scene and that is most of the story. So it was a nice quickie it seemed to me it could have been so much more. I would love to see the author take this premise and expand on it to make a longer novella or even a full length novel.
