Any Love but Mine

by Debbie Davies

Kindle Edition290 pages
Published March 3rd 2012 by Night Publishing

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

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?


This book is a fun change to the YA literature I've read lately.  Acacia is a strong character with a likable personality.  I really enjoyed her story!  She's easy to relate to and drew me into her life.  I so wanted to give this book five stars but two things stopped me.  Acacia's inner dialogue about Josh and her own life was a little too verbose.  By half-way through the book or so it wasn't a problem, but it caused the first part of the book to lag in places for me.  Further in, the pace of the book is great- I couldn't stop reading to the end!  Second, the number of typos was a bit of a distraction from the plot.  Don't let that stop you from reading it- it's worth it!  Overall, I thought the story was really fun!  I think teens would really enjoy it!  I hope the next book comes out soon- I want to know what happens!

3.5/5 stars
