    I couldn't wait to finish this book but for all the wrong reasons Even a 2 star rating seems generous Back in 2002 when this book first came out it was probably fresh and exciting But from then on a lot has evolved in UFPNR land and I think I've been 'spoiled' with good uality writing The writing was extremely simplistic repetitive and annoying The POV changing wasn't done well at all The story was I know even for a PNR about a 2000 year old Spartan demi God totally unrealistic The characters as well as their actions were unbelievable Take for instance our heroine Grace Despite the fact that she was a successful sex therapist she seemed to have little to no sexual knowledge she kept talking about feelings she never knew that existed both mentally and physically She also kept bringing up personal and vulnerable topics with the hero while in the presence of others Privacy anyone? Oh and the cherry on the cake was that this supposed sex therapist had her own untreated sexual trauma a fact that makes you project your own problems on your patients and therefore makes you a bad therapist The big trauma was that she was deflowered at 24? by some guy who didn't care for her And 5 years later she was still all shaken up about it Booo fucking hoo Argh this book had me rolling my eyes constantly The dialogues and inner monologues at times seemed to be competing for the prize of 'cheesiest lines ever' If it wasn't for my compulsion to finish stuff I started and the fact that I wanted to know what the Kenyon fuss was about I would have thrown the book out No maybe ritually burnt it I'm told that the Dark Hunter series is good so I'm actually willing to spend money on the second book I hope I won't be sorry

    With a title like “Fantasy Lover” I was not expecting this book to be so riotously funny Gorgeous man yes Sexual tension for sure Hot sex hell yeah But comedy? Who knew?? HAHA I’m on the verge of busting out into one of those snorting wheezing laughs that makes your cheeks hurt just remembering the hilarious heinosity I realize that isn’t a real word that filled the pages of this bookHimJulian of Macedon is an ancient warrior of the Macedonian variety hence the name “Julian of Macedon” His mother was Aphrodite Greek goddess of love So obviously he’s smoking hot Blonde Has killer blue eyes And big muscles And he’s also amazing in the sack To use one of the heroines phrases “I wouldn’t toss him out of bed for eating crackers” Well said Grace well said When Julian was 32 he seduced a virgin he had no business seducing and was cursed to spend eternity as a love slave And what pray tell is a love slave? Well A love slave exists solely to pleasure whatever woman summons him to her secret chambers From one full moon to the next Julian fulfills his masters every sexual fantasy For an entire month he is compelled to want her To crave her pleasure Every man’s dream right? Right Except the gods seem to have taken away his ability to have an orgasm Poor thing 2000 years laterHerGrace Alexander 29 has only had sex a couple times and wasn’t overly fond of it Despite these odds she is a sex therapist At the start of the book she admits that she has been celibate for four years The therapist in her needs to help people and realizes that there is to life than sex So when she summons Julian the love slave to her side as a joke Grace is far too practical to believe in something so silly as a Macedonian love slave and he actually shows up gasp Grace makes it her mission to help Julian break the curse and give him back his humanity Saved by Grace indeed CheeseI desperately wish I’d written down all the references to cheese in this novel Who knew one would find so many references to cheese eating cheese and playing with cheese in a smut novel? To be perfectly honest cheese is one of my favorite things Ever Cheese will single handedly be the reason I am destined to walk around for the rest of my life with a little extra padding on my curves and I’m perfectly comfortable with that knowledge So the cheese references really spoke to me and sold me on Sherrilyn Kenyon’s bizarre sense of humormild spoilers after this pointBreaking the Curse1 Love Slave 1 Born Again Virgin Sex Therapist the following conditional statement if they want to break the curse they can’t have sex for a whole month SexUh yeah There’s a lot of it Sherrilyn Kenyon is a total perv and I love her for it To break the curse Julian and Grace can’t have at it for an entire month but they’re both highly creative people who find all kinds of ways to have sex without actually doing it The voyeur in me was highly satisfied with this arrangement And once they finally had at it I was so happy I cried Okay that’s a lie But I was very happy for them and was laughing so hard over the last few pages that I was near tears and am pretty sure the other people in the cafeteria were wondering what I was on because I was laughing uietly But definitely out loud Laughed so Hard I Cried and Almost PeedCupid Julian’s brother makes his appearance in this novel as a biker dude and Psyche is his blonde biker bimbo Both Athena and Aphrodite also show up and both make comments about “kicking ass” or say “kick his ass” which is the absolute last thing on Earth I would have expected to hear from Greek goddesses I laughed so hard I almost peed my pantsI’ve ueued up another Kenyon novel to my account with booksfreecom and can’t wait

    So what’s your style preference?For what I have in mind nudity works best Fantasy Lover is an amazing preuel to the Dark Hunter series based on Greek Mythology the love story of Julian and GraceJulian who was the most feared Macedonian general of his time was betrayed and cursed to be a love slave for all time Grace is the only one who is able to break this curseGrace is always rational maybe too rational she tries to find sense even in lustShe couldn’t very well let him join her in bed like that Sure you couldNo I can’t Please?Hush self let me thinkBut eventually her steadiness saves Julian She is honest perceptive and always gives regards to Julian’s feelings She has a strong empathy for him she understands him sees him as himself not only his perfect appearance She was the first woman to see him Not his looks not his body not his warrior’s prowess She saw inside his soul I love Julian I feel so sorry for his sufferings both in his human life and in the immortal one Despite his incredibly cruel childhood and past Julian managed to remain a gentle caring manSherrilyn Kenyon has a special talent to write heart wrenching lines She doesn't simply give a description of emotions but she is also able to make you feel them Though there is no Dark Hunter in this novel Julian will appear in the following books which is than welcomed Fantasy Lover is a really great start to the Dark Hunter series

    This is not my first book by this author and I actually started off with this series by reading the seuel of this story I know strange but it worked for me I liked the seuel enough to read this story And I love love loved it The story is a mix of greek ancient time where gods still rulled the world and the present time where the gods sadly still rule but so in the background But it's not just gods and myths there are also some other supernatural beeings that make the plot really interesting The hero Julian is to die for he's a tortured old soul but with so much love to give He's been a love slave trapped in the book  for almost two thousand years and surprisingly enough he's still sane I adore him The same goes for Grace she's got such a big heart and loved the way those two found their way to each other So sweet They have to sacrifice to gain but the wait is so worth it What a wonderful read

    375 wishful stars Blessed by Aphrodite’s divine touch he grew into such a man that no woman could deny him her body For when it came to the Art of Love he knew no eual— his stamina far beyond that of any mere mortal man His desires hot and wild he could never be tamed Or denied Fantasy Lover is the first book in the Dark Hunter series a delicious paranormal take on the genie in the lamp except instead of rubbing the lamp you make a birthday wish substitute a Greek love slave for the genie a book instead of a lamp and a month long pleasure vs three wishes Sounds like a good time right ? His only goal will be to please you to serve you To savor you In his arms you will learn true paradise But in this case you have Julian who is trapped in a curse for than two thousand years so he is pretty jaded and on the other hand you have Grace who is too kind who felt for him and couldn't imagine using someone for their own pleasureno matter how tempting they may be Now she has a month to come up with a way to break his curse and set him free “What if we could find a way to get you free?” “I assure you there isn’t one” “Fatalistic aren’t you?” He cast a droll look at her “Being trapped for two thousand years does that to a person” Grace takes Julian under her wing and teaches him how to live in the present wanting to get to know him and shows her the things she enjoys outside the bedroom Julian forgot what it was like to be respected live with some kind of dignity and have a woman who sees you for you and not just what you can do for them Grace isn't keen on the idea of having sex with out the emotion she needs to feel for the person and importantly they need to feel for her How much longer can she keep on saying no when he wakes everything up inside her willing her to say yes “Do you know I can feel your presence all over my body? With every sense I possess?” Fantasy Lover was an definitely an entertaining read it had whit sarcasm humor heat and heart While we get caught up in the who's the why's and the what next it wasn't that hard to follow and connect the dots It is a sweet touching read I personally expected it to be all sex so it was a nice surprise did I wish there was a tad bit of course but that is just me for you The book was written in 2002 and in some weird way it was noticeable I usually don't pick up on those kind of things but while I read it felt a bit outdated Regardless it was an enjoyable read not really sure how this coincides with the Dark Hunters since there really wasn't any hunting going on but I guess I'll find out as soon as I move onto the next book

    Fantasy Lover is the first full length novel by Sherrilyn Kenyon that I have read and I absolutely loved it It was packed with thoroughly romantic moments and beautiful sensuality that was sheer perfection for me and that was even without the hero and heroine actually having sex until the very end of the book I consider myself to be a very girly girl and I find that Ms Kenyon's writing style has a very feminine uality that is very appealing to me I like the balance that she finds between the serious side of life and finding humor even in dark circumstances I thought that the use of Greek gods and goddesses as secondary characters was a very uniue element that made me want to go brush up on my knowledge of Greek mythology Some people seemed to think that the ending was too rushed and while I could in some ways see where they're coming from I really didn't mind For me it was full of unexpected twists and turns that engaged my attention so much that I completely lost track of timeI loved both Grace and Julian They were just as perfect for me as the story was as a whole Julian is the classic tortured hero completely gorgeous on the outside but feeling unworthy of true love because of his past Grace was just as sweet as could be and very relatable for me While some readers thought her to be weak because of her tender heartedness I thought that she had a uiet inner strength and determination that was endearing What I liked most about Grace and Julian's relationship is how they gave so freely and unselfishly to each other When Julian sold his most precious possession to replace Grace's most precious possessions that were destroyed my heart just did flip flops Also being the book lover that I am I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes where Julian derives so much pleasure from Grace reading to him Sometimes it's just the little things that make a character or a story special for me I know I probably sound like a gushing fan girl but I really did love this book and can't wait to read of the Dark Hunter series I borrowed this book from the library but I will definitely be getting my own copy to place on my keeper shelf It is very rare for me to place an author among my favorites when I have read so few of their works I've only read one other novella by her but I relate to Sherrilyn Kenyon's writing style so much I couldn't imagine that I wouldn't enjoy almost anything she's written

    The best part of this book? Grace's dinner Four pieces of pizza two Hostess cupcakes and four glasses of wine Now that's something I can relate to Conjuring a Greek god sex slave that finds the normal slightly chubby Grace irresistible? Not so much Considering how much this guy has been aroundAnything Greek mythology related and I usually love it There was a little bit of mythology along with some Roman and Greek history But there was mostly a romance that included a lot of heat swirling stomachs deep moans and hot looks And the main point of the story was for them to avoid having sex so that they could break his curse So much longingAaannnd he's been with thousands of women and is angsty while she is pretty much a virgin soooo originalBut I thought this was a preuel to the Dark Hunter series so that's why I read it Apparently I was wrong I know? Me wrong? I guess it could happen So on to the first Dark Hunter book There is someone who has been trying to get me to read this series for years Happy now Jen?

    Well this is the first book from the Dark Hunter series and I have to say there wasn't any dark hunting in this one XD As is with all the first books we get to see the introduction in this whole new world the author created Greek gods I mean YUMMY I was always fascinated with mithology and this one is right up my alley Julian is a half god cursed in a book to be a love slave through eternity He is immortal and has been cursed for two thousand years One night Grace and her friend get drunk and they summon him Although he is here for only one reason to give her pleasure Grace doesn't want to have meaningless sex with a stranger but still they create some good fireworks together XD I felt really bad for Julian the way he grew up was horrible and he was used as a sex slave for centuries He doesn't believe he deserves love to a point he actually thinks no one can ever love him But he meets Grace and they form a friendship She is the first female who is not guided just by his penis XD She actually wants to know him better and when she does she begins to fall in love with him But the bich of it all is the curse it can only be broken if they don't have sex during the month he gets to be free Yup But there are lots of sexy scenes don't worry XD I liked this a lot even though it wouldn't have killed the author to insert some storyaction in this one It basically revolved around the fact that they want to have sex but can't XD But I guess it's ok considering it's the first of the series we got to see some of the Olympian gods and it was left open for another character Julian's only friend from the past heheh can't wait to read about him

    Fantasy Lover is the 1st book in The Entire Dark Hunterverse Series and whilst it was not one of my favorites I did enjoy reading it One of the things I liked about it was the main character Julian –son of a legendary Spartan general becoming commander of the Macedonian army Betrayed and angering the Greek gods he was cursed for all eternity trapped inside a book and released once a month to be used as a sex slave by whoever opened the said bookNow that doesn’t sound too bad To be used as a sex toy and you don’t even get to choose if you want to or not Hell that does not sound good to me The poor guy is about to give up whensomething or someone good comes along into his life That someone is sex therapist Grace Alexander who has gone off men forever After giving men a miss for a while she is given the most outlandish present ever by her best friendswho has been worrying about Grace’s “manless” situation A Greek sex slavewho is known to be good at what he doeswink wink How could any sane woman refuse such a presentSo is Grace the one who will break Julian’s curse? Will she accept the world he lives?I enjoyed the flashbacks to Julian’s history in ancient Greece and Rome This being the first book there’s very little world building – some interesting secondary characters that will have their own books in the futureThere were some funny moments “Um Dr Alexander there’s a couple out here who say they’re related to you Theyumthey’re biker people NurseHey Julian Tell Attila the Hun here that we’re okay so we can come and ooh and aah over the babies Eros” “You have the optimism of a child JulianPeter Pan all the way Grace” “Cupid you worthless bastard I summon you to human form JulianGee I can't imagine why he wouldn't respond to that Grace” I’m happy that I read this bookhow the Dark Hunters world begins
