Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sex therapist Grace Alexander is turning twenty-nine, and her track record in relationships with men has been less than stellar. Her closest friend Selena, a gypsy palm reader, is concerned that Grace lacks a love life and gives her a very special birthday gift. A two thousand year old book that, according to legend, contains a Greek God trapped inside its covers for all eternity, to be summoned by a woman as her own personal love slave. Grace is skeptical, but jokingly plays along with reciting the words to bring him forth. Nothing happens.
Well, initially nothing happens. But a little later she finds a huge, gorgeous, and very naked warrior in her house ready to fulfill her every fantasy. Now while most of us would nail shut all the windows and doors, take the phone off the hook, and never leave home again, Grace refuses to give in to her urges. In fact, she insists he wear clothes, takes him out in public, and treats him as a human.
A Greek general, and son of the goddess Aphrodite, Julian of Macedon was cursed by his jealous brother, and placed in the book to spend eternity alone. Except for when a woman summons him, and then he spends from one full moon to the next pleasuring her, and he knows everything about pleasuring a woman. Julian learned long ago to accept his fate, and no longer feels anything, but Grace changes all that. Now together they will work to figure out how to break the curse, but when they discover how, will they each be willing to follow through with what's required?
This remains one of, if not the most unique romance novel I've read to date. When I decided to read this book, it was with a mix of intrigue for the original storyline, and trepidation it would be too far-fetched, and might be to the point of ridiculous.

WOW!

The chemistry between Grace and Julian was so deep, I was crying toward the end, and holding my breath, hoping against all odds for their relationship to work. It was so real, and human.

I also loved how Grace was actually a little overweight - might seem weird to like that aspect, but I often find that in romance stories, if there are overweight characters, it's always about them losing weight to find love, and I truly hate that. In this story, while she has low self-esteem about her body image, eventually, I feel that she came to be fine about it because Julian thought she was beautiful just the way she was, just like she appreciate his physical appearance, but didn't just see a breathtaking body, but a person.

The story was amazing, and always had enough background information to understand the characters and their past without it being an information dump or cluttered. Even the secondary characters were believable and fun!

Will definitely buy this in paperback!

The book is about Grace Alexander, a woman with a few bad relationships (and sexual experiences) in her past who hasn't dated for four years. Her friend Selena, a ditzy but well meaning tarot card reader, gets her drunk on her birthday and persuades her to summon a hot Greek god from an old book she found in a local shop. To appease her friend she calls to Julian of Macedon at midnight in the moonlight. Julian of Macedon, cursed to be trapped inside a book for eternity by his brother Priapus, appears and pledges to be her love slave for 30 days until the next full moon. Thereafter Grace endeavours to find out how Julian became cursed and how together they might free him and live happily ever after as mortals together. Very hot, steamy and amusing but also quite predictable (hence the 3 stars).

I bought this book as a "filler" while I was waiting for one of my favourite authors to bring out her next book and Amazon seemed to think I might like it based on my other purchases. This is my first Sherrilyn Kenyon book and although it was a quick/easy read unlike some of the other reviewers I was not compelled to rush out and buy the others. Probably best suited if you are looking for a good beach read.

This was my first Sherrilyn Kenyon book and honestly it was a struggle to get through. All I could think was what am I missing? I mean the Dark Hunter series is SO popular there must be something wrong with me because this, well this was a grind.

FANTASY LOVER has its moments, the premise is unique and intriguing; an ex Spartan general cursed to spend eternity as a love slave trapped inside a book. He's released every so often to be the sexual plaything of whoever has called him forth but Julian is aware inside the book and therefore also anguished and claustrophobic. His mortal past is full of pain too and I enjoyed the flashbacks into it and all the Greek/Roman history. Truthfully he only reason I managed to finish this at all was because of Julian. Just tortured and sexy enough to peak my interest, unfortunately though he had to fall for a dip.... like Grace.

Grace Alexander would have to up there as one of my least favourite heroines ever. Anytime she spoke or we were in her head I ended up cringing. Even in the closing pages I was still rolling my eyes through every single bit of her dialogue Talk about cheesy, immature, silly and painful. With expressions like holly guacamole and greasy grimy gopher guts it was also unrealistic. And really, a sex therapist? She must not be very good at her job because she's got her own hang-ups is clueless about sex.

Julian of Macedon has been condemned to spend eternity within the pages of a mysterious book. Called forth many times over his two thousand years of confinement he definitely knows how to pleasure the ladies (his curse makes it mandatory) but he expects little else from his duties.
