Review GunShy by Seleste deLaney

Title: GunShy
Author: Seleste deLaney
Source: Author Request
Format: eBook, Novella
Release Date: September 16, 2011
Banished from Olympus with orders to restore love to the world, Eros starts with a match no one sees coming. No one but him.

Straight-laced principal Kira isn’t looking for love, especially not right after getting dumped. Then a chance encounter leads her to Jesse, and damned if she isn’t drawn to the bad-boy with a heart of gold. A night of reckless abandon leaves her confused. Was there something there, or did she imagine the connection between them?

Jesse knows lying to Kira is a mistake, but she’s the first woman in a long time to see the man and not just the rock star. When his plan to come clean goes terribly wrong, Kira bolts, leaving Jesse in the dust.

Now Eros has to nudge the star-crossed lovers together and prove to Zeus that love does exist, even among the gun shy. 

Sometimes life gets stressful and hectic and you just can't find the energy or time to dive into a new series or a long book. Then along comes a wonderful, short novella that is just the pick me up you need. Gun Shy was exactly what I needed this week. It was a sweet story of taking a chance and finding love in the most unlikely places.

Eros has been banished to Earth for neglecting his job and allowing love among the humans to dissipate. Until he brings enough couples together he can't go back home. He starts with Kira, a high school principal who's less than classy boyfriend dumps her at the top of a Ferris wheel and Jesse, the bassist for a popular rock band who's tired of the partying and fast and fake lifestyle. Throw in a carnival, a fortune teller machine and a "wasp" sting and you find yourself pulled into a cute story that plays to the "rock star falls for everyday girl" fantasy in all of us. Now I think I'll go put on my favorite CD and pretend my rock star is a sweet as Jesse.
