3 starsIt was an ok book but I found the main characters a little annoying in all their drama Jude runs cold and hot like a Kathy Perry song and Harris was trapped in a cycle of promising he was going to be ok with what Jude did for a living only to break his promise 5 seconds later rinse and repeatI also was a little annoyed about the self destructive tendencies of both characters Harris s in particular since I felt it was a call for attention rather than the result of real issuesThe steam was medium low with two not very descriptive sex scenes It felt very insta lovey with too soon declarations of eternal loveIt has a Happy Ending This book wasokayI didn t love it and I didn t hate it It had too much detailing in some aspects like the technicalities of perfumery and in others not so muchlike what happened to Mineau Is he still with the business How about Charon The writing also went lent into the what I call over artistic I kept saying to myself there is no way anyone talks like this in real life or maybe the simple fact is that I need to expand my social circle I don t knowI expected Harris Hades as the blurb said to be strong willed fiery assertive and an all round badass What he was however was timid obsessive and a bit childish He always wanted to get his way and if things didn t go as he wanted he went off the bendAs for JudePallas the other MC I didn t even know what to make of him One moment he was all suave and in charge the next he was running away only for him to cave into demands when Harris persisted He was a mess and not the type that ou feel empathy for In all honesty I didn t care for both of the MCs and come to think of it I didn t care for any of the other characters as well The whole book was a bit monotonous nothing really happens and it got to a point where reading it got tedious I justwanted it to end Fortunately I managed to finish it and I think I deserve a pat on the back for it eARC Graciously Provided By Publisher In Exchange For An Honest Unbiased Review Very interesting profession for a protagonist But why a cover with a bottle so similar or the same as J Adore A women s perfume Let me 1st start off by saying that I love me Mel Bossa But this book just didnt work with me I had a hard time concentrating on it and even liking the characters Sad to say this one was a DNF for me Maybe Ill go back 1 day to start all over again and then try to finish it MareSlitsread 325I think the art of perfume was the poetry in this book It was almost like a side character to Harris aka Hades The way the book was broken down like a perfume scent and the Greek mythology made it all very alluring romantic and mysterious When Harris would explain scents and notes ou could almost smell them right along with him Hades as Harris is known because of his dark presence seems to either scare people off or allure them to him While I love this notion I only got that from him in maybe the first chapter After he. Harris is notorious for his pursuit of perfection and having a fiery temper They haven't nicknamed him Hades for nothing Weeks away from launching his first perfume for men Erebus Harris dreams of Les Champs Élysées and emerging triumphant.

Meets Pallas or Jude it all kind of falls away I m not sure if this is good or bad Meeting Pallas our first impression is he s cold and controlled He plays this part well for awhile He seems to go hot and cold over and over which in turn makes Harris seem kind of lovesick and needy It turns into this cycle of I love ou for who ou are You should stop doing what The Alcohol Experiment you re doing Im sorry please don t go The merry go round got a little frustrating but there were also some great moments in this story Once Harris finally gets to peel back the layers of Jude and they re finally on the same footing it s a glorious thing I love the idea of their suits and the light with the darkin and Menggairahkan Perjalanan Halaqah yang thing they have going on One thing I am confused about that I wish something would have happened was Harris s mentor and his possible backstabbing tendencies I really wish that would have been resolved This is an instant attraction book that does move rather uickly I feel like the story could have stretched a little making their love burn a little hotter and longer and giving depth to certain parts of the story Given all that I do find the characters intriguing and I loved the concept of the whole story I was engaged the entire time and had I not needed some sleep would have finished this in one sitting I give it a solid 325 Giving away ARCs for those interested to review this contemporary romance featuring a perfumer and a male escort with a heart of goldComing on August 15th Hades in Love was a weird book which pains me to say because I think that Mel Bossa is a brilliant author But this bookeah weird I felt like the story was written very oddly There was a distance between the reader and the characters that was hard to get past I felt very removed from the MCs and I never warmed to them Maybe it was the almost formal manner of speaking or the wealthy privileged vibe of the story but everything felt very stiff and inaccessible for me It was a difficult book to get into and a difficult book to finish The plot was also uniue While I think that the idea of using characters from Greek mythology was pretty cool I kept stopping to look up each person and do research while reading I didn t want to miss any nuances implied by their namesmythology but it really detracted from the story It pulled me out of the flow and I felt like there were inside jokes that I was missing I also didn t love the rent boyperfume maker plot It was too serious too heavy and it didn t have the desired emotional impact that I was looking forAll in all not even close to Mel Bossa s best work While not a horrible story I was happy when it was over Copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review I struggled through this from the start mostly because I couldn t connect to the characters and their relationship at allI don t even know if I really liked them as individual characters to be honest There were often dialogue only passages back and forth wher. As the new prince of scent A few weeks before the launch party Harris's best friend suggests he contact an escort agency fittingly called Olympus to hire a date for his big night Harris can't resist the idea A hassle free date with no expecta.
E Harris and Jude were talking but we had no clue what they were doing The dialogue itself was very formal and also had this whole feeling of being wealthy and overprivileged and it was also overdramatic It just didn t flow naturally and seem real like real conversations wouldn t sound like that We were never given any internalization especially from Jude so we never knew what he was really thinking And Jude was so hot and cold about the idea of having with Harris it was hard to figure him out This was definitely a case of being told what was going on not shown I think the idea of the story was interesting and I liked the blend of Greek mythology into the story but this definitely fell short for me and I couldn t get into the story at allI received a copy of this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review ARC provided by the publisher through NetgalleyLet s talk about the cover first It s sooo beautiful And now to the Book the description of the book and the cover The cover was intriguing and since the last escort book I read Dark Escort turned out to be surprisingly good I was anticipating this read very much But unfortunately the book didn t deliverThe protagonists Harris aka Hades and Jude aka Pallas didn t act like grown ups they were childish like I didn t connect with any of them Jude had so many mood swings and Harris was istantly lovesick Oh Spiritual Warfare for Every Christian yeahet another New Adult book with insta love I just couldn t understand their attraction to each otherThis book was too short It could have covered the issue with Harris mentor Mineau or other things And of course make their romance of a slow burnI really liked it when Harris talked about perfumes though It was always very poetic and they were the best parts of the book Or when Greek mythology was mentioned I ve always been a fan of Greek mythology I didn t feel the romance most probably it was because I didn t believe in the characters and their motives for what they did They had issues in their lives in their past but it wasn t real to me all was told and never shown Their issues with parents Harris living on the street they were all a bunch of sentences rather than a glimpse into these characters livesThe dialogue was unreal They would start somewhere and end up somewhere so unrelevent that I would say huh who says that or just WhyI couldn t see why harris fell in love with Palas he was not himself he was acting he was working Harris wasn t seeing anything of the real him just his face and body How could he fall in love It would have been great if Palas s emotions were shown better he felt like a bad actor for most of the book The references to Gods and mythical character were too much they should have been at least half to be enjoyable But enough complaining it s just that I really wanted to loved this book The idea and promis of it was great but the result didn t work for me I enjoyed the details about scents and perfumes it was the best part of the book. Tions sounds perfect But when Olympus sends his date Pallas Harris gets a lot than he'd paid for Blond and cool Pallas cuts through Harris's guard like a clean blade But Pallas also has dreams of his own and they don’t include falling in lo.
I think I've written and changed my bio on here a hundred times in the last decade See that's why I don't have tattoosI've been a GR for almost ten years and I still use it daily to keep up with my reading and to learn about books old and new ones but importantly because as I grow older and hopefully wiser I realize that readers are my favorite type of people They seem to be a little
