Product description

About the Author

Jessie Harrell fell in love with the Cupid & Psyche myth while majoring in Classical Studies at the University of Florida. (Yes, that degree is about as useless as it sounds.) After attending law school, getting married, having kids and realizing that the real world is a lot more work than she thought it'd be (both good and bad), she turned back to this myth and made it her own.

I chose a four star for this kindle book.

Even though I loved the book it could of been a little better in the character development. Psyche is nice, but she didn't really have much sense to betray her sister and then wondered why she wanted to kill her when she found out. When eros becomes besotted with psyche in the beginning, it seems to fast and she isn't scared when she can only see a dark shadow. I think her dad was too hard on her too marry just anyone so he wouldn't be embarrased by her actions, he was a bit cruel. What I loved was the myth being told differently and the action at the end. I could feel the love growing between them even though he scratched himself with his own arrow. Not forgetting his mother aphrodiate, how cruel she was changing nice then horrible. Anyway I was hooked till the end.

Destined is a book I came across only a few weeks ago and at first, it was the cover that caught my eye. I absolutely love it, it's really beautiful. But then when I read the blurb, I was really intrigued with this book because Cupid and Greek Gods tied into a love story, who wouldn't be?

When Psyche is taken under the wing of Aphrodite, she is thrilled and she is told she will become the new face of Greece. But when Psyche turns down Aphrodite's request to marry her son Eros, she's left in a world of trouble, because now the powerful goddess has it in for her.

With Aphrodite on the war path, Psyche tries to keep out of her way but when a prophecy reveals that Psyche will have a hideous future and will fall in love with a creature even the god's fear, she's lead straight into Aphrodite's world. But can she escape what is destined? Or will she fall into the arms of the one everyone fears?

Destined is an exciting, fresh and unique story. It's like nothing I've ever read before and I think Jessie Harrell did an amazing job recreating the story of Greek Gods and Cupid. Greek Mythology has been popping up everywhere lately and honestly, it's fast becoming my favourite. So automatically....Jessie gets a win from me.

What I loved about this book were the characters that were most memorable for me. I loved Psyche's character. I loved how strong and willing she was but I also liked her more vulnerable side and reactions during the book was very realistic. Baring in mind she's a young girl and I thought all the qualities Jessie showed in her reflected very well. Now Eros, oh Eros! I absolutely LOVED him! He's the type of guy that leaves you breathless and wishing that Cupid was actually real.

I saw Jessie Harrell on Twitter and heard her talking about her book. I was intrigued by what I was hearing, so I had to look it up.
I first saw the beautiful cover which I loved for a few reasons. The model is gorgeous, purple is my favourite colour and I love butterflies. Also the fact that the whole thing just had this soft, romantic look about it. I knew I had to have it.
I think I had to wait about a fortnight for it to be released and I was itching to read it. On the day it came out, I read that Amazon was out of stock, so I ordered it from The Book Depository. It came but a mere 4 days later and I dived right in. ( I should also say that at this point, I had bought the ring that Psyche wears on the cover and had received a signed bookmark from Jessie in the post).....

Up until the days of Percy Jackson, I had never read anything based on mythology of any kind. Call me ignorant, but I also don't really know much about the myths themselves. However, when I knew that DESTINED was based on the myth of Psyche & Cupid, or in this case Eros, I actually looked up the myth on the internet.
To me personally, I felt it was romantic. Yes, okay, a little tragic, but romantic all the same.
So I was even more excited to get DESTINED in the post.

When Aphrodite decides to pronounce Psyche her 'mortal daughter' it looks like things couldn't get better for Psyche. But when Aphrodite tries to set Psyche up with her son Eros, it looks like things are about to fall apart at the seams. It is not wise to anger a Goddess, less so to anger the Goddess who not so long ago publicly claimed you as her mortal daughter.
But it isn't only Psyche. Eros is not interested in her either. So why should they be forced to marry when neither are interested in the other?

Destined is a book about a beautiful girl names Psyche who Aphrodite takes under her wing as her daughter. Then, she wants Psyche to marry her son, Eros. But both Psyche and Eros are disgusted by the thought of it at the start. As the book progresses, Eros falls in love with Psyche and he does everything he can to save her from his mother who is now wanting Psyche dead for disobeying her on marrying Eros.

I found the book disappointing as I felt the book was very slow paced and not much happened in my eyes. I found the storyline a bit boring and expected more from it. The cover is brilliant, which made me want to read it in the first place. But the ending was too...whoopy doo, everything's hunky doory just in time for the end of the book.

When picking up the book I expected great things from it as I really enjoyed the Percy Jackson and The Lighting Thief books which were also about the Gods. In comparison, Destined was a long way away from being as good as they ever were.

But I did sort of enjoy it. I loved the relationship Eros and Psyche had together throughout the book. I thought Psyche acted a bit stupid sometimes and that she never thought of the consequences of her actions which peeved me off.

Would I read it again? Maybe.
