Sometimes the gods can be so unreasonable.

Like Zeus, the king, who thinks the proper reaction to finding me kissing a mortal is to threaten my boyfriend Orion's life, banish me to Earth, and force me to inspire true love between three couples without my powers. I know! Elders! I'm Eros, a.k.a. Cupid. The Goddess of Love. Until this morning, anyway.

Now I'm stuck on Earth wi

“Daddy, no!” I shouted.
“They’re going to kill him!” I wailed, desperate.
“Nooooo!” I wailed.
Meet Eros, the Greek Goddess of Love. She never stops fucking wailing. This is one of the worst books based on Greek mythology that I've ever read. To make matters worse, it's told from THREE POVs.

People usually get wiser with age, for example, I used to be afraid that monsters would munch on my toes while I slept. That ended when I was 20, so clearly, I gained some wisdom over 10 years. One would think

Review originally posted at: http://mostlyyalit.blogspot.ca/2014/0...

Kieran Scott is one of my Jedi Masters of YA - she's been writing YA since before we really called it that (and since *I* was a YA...yikes, I'm old), she edited Sweet Valley books, and no one does YA contemporary romance quite like her (Some of you may know her as Kate Brian - this woman is a writing machine!). So it's no surprise that when I saw she had this new YA contemp coming out, I jumped at the chance to review it.

Ok, tr

To be fair, I read up until 50% of this book, skimmed for a while, and then skipped ahead to the 95% mark where I finished the book. So I wasn’t entirely sure whether to classify this book as a “DNF” read or as a full-fledged read. But in the end, because I knew what happened at the very end in terms of the resolution, I was overly indulgent and told myself I had completed this novel. The reason I was so hesitant to endure

Eros is sent to Earth after her father, Ares, discovers that she is in love with a mortal, Orion. Apparently only the upper gods/goddesses can have relations with mortals and whoever they like while lower gods and goddesses are just out of luck. Anyways…Zeus sends Eros to Earth without her bow and arrows or her powers and she must make three couples fall in love. Otherwise, Zeus and/or Ares will kill Orion.

This story is told from three point of views. True (Eros), Charlie, and Katrina. I found t

Hannah (The Irish Banana Review)
When I was approached about reviewing this series since Valentine’s Day was around the corner (and the series is about Eros, Goddess of Love AKA Cupid), I figured why not? It sounded kinda fun and I like Greek Mythology. I never expected it to kickstart an obsession with all things Kieran Scott and one of the funnest, most original characters I’ve read in a long time.

ONLY EVERTHING is unique in the way it’s told. It has 3 points of view—the first is True (Eros) who has been banished to the Earth

"You will then prove your worth to me by forming true love between three couples with no godly tricks up your sleeve," Zeus continued. "Only then will you be allowed to return to Mount Olympus."

This is the best mythology book I've ever read. And I'm very surprised, because I usually hate mythology. Anything to do with gods and goddesses usually bores the heck out of me, and I usually hate all of the history and actual myths and everything. I picked up this novel thinking that it's a usual

I've been looking for other interesting takes on Greek mythology since (re)reading the Percy Jackson series for the hundredth time, so I decided to check out Only Everything. I've heard nothing but good things about the series, so figured it was worth a shot.

Kieran introduces us to Eros a.k.a. Cupid a.k.a. True (her Earth name) who is stuck on earth after a love affair with a mortal. Her punishment is to inspire true love between three mortal couples without her powers, before she can be allowe

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
This is so cool!!!

*MC’s Corner*

• I think my only problem here is there’ s SOOOOO many characters!!! **dizzy**

• So now I know Eros is Cupid… I didn’t know that!!! THANK YOU!
I thought Cupid is an angel and Eros is a guy…. LOL **silly me**

• I really love the idea of this series. It’s so cute! Katrina and Charlie are just… **sigh** I love the last part of their story. I’m so jealous.

• The cliffhanger is crazy. I don’t know what to say/think. GIMME THE NEXT ONE! . I am so excited!

Did not finish.

I received this galley in exchange for an honest review.

I ended up not finishing this one. I usually love books that are set in our time period with the Greek gods and goddesses as the main characters, but I just couldn’t get into this one. I liked the characters enough, but the story just bored me. The first chapter left me completely confused. We have Eros (aka Cupid) and the love her life, Orion in the heavens just hanging out. They love each other, which pisses Zeus off becau

A YA novel that features Eros, a lesser goddess, being sent to earth as a mortal to create a love match...actually three of them. Otherwise, her love will be tortured and killed by Zeus.

Making her way in high school is a learning,curve all its own as she attempts to match up Charlie with various girls. Told through the perspective of three characters, this story isn't as simple as it appears, but only because a reader pays attention. Getting the two people together takes more help from other go

Recommends it for: ANYONE!!!
First things first, whoever thinks this is a "fluffy, cute, romance novel" couldn't be more wrong. It is a romance novel, but no way is it fluffy. It deals with REAL ISSUES. I love it when books do that!
Second things second, I had a traumatic experience with this book. My mother asked me to leave it in Virginia (whole states away), and I nearly cried because I couldn't bear to part with this book. I LOVED IT!!!!!
Now I will review it.

FIRST THOUGHTS:

Holy moly, this book was SO MUCH FUN. I love how Scott put a spin on all the Greek mythological figures I'm familiar with to bring them into the contemporary world! And the story is entertaining, shenanigans and all.

REVIEW:

I read for many reasons, but chief among them is to be entertained. And holy moly, but Only Everything was the first book I'd read in a while that was really good and really fun too! It was a seriously enjoyable reading experience, and just thinking about True,

Ok, so I originally wanted the fun and hilarious antics like the author’s first book series. I really loved She’s So/He’s So series despite my fluctuating mood while reading it and my ever conflicting feelings towards Jake. This one has those elements too but not really as interesting and as captivating as her former series. The only edge of this one is that it wasn’t a complete contemporary book. It injected mythology to it. Our heroine here is True; which is in fact one of the gods who got her ...more

I've always like Kieran Scott, but I've tried and tried and tried for the past month, and I just could not finish this one... I went switching back and forth from being extremely bored with the messed-up mythology to extremely irritated with the characters. After trying to pick it up at least 20 times, I've given up about halfway through.

First of all, I could not stand True. It's not that she was a total walking disaster, who believed she knew it all but was too blind to see what was right in fr

I really wanted to like this book more. I did. But it was just so obvious. I kept turning the page, going, "FIGURE IT OUT ALREADY!!!!" But no, all the characters just had to be clueless until that one random moment when it all clicks. I'm going to read the second one anyways, so I'm hoping it's better.
Lauren R.
This was really cute! It took me a while to get through for some reason, but I definitely enjoyed it. The concept was really fun and I can't wait to see what happens in the rest of the trilogy. I like that the books are set up so that True has to get three couples together: one per book. Charlie and Katrina, in this book, were so cute but I wish there was more time with them - more interactions and more swoons and more chemistry. The three different POVs didn't throw me off as I got reading, but ...more

Eros has always been a mischievous god. When she shot her arrows at the gorgeous Orion and the virgin goddess, Artemis, she had no idea what chaos would ensue. After Apollo tricked Artemis into killing Orion, Artemis hung his constellation in the sky to watch over everything.

Now, centuries later, Eros has accidentally freed Orion from his starry home and brought him back to life.

She's also fallen head over heels in love with him.

Only Everything, by Kieran Scott

Eros, the daughter of Aphrodite, has just been exiled from Mount Olympus--with her mother--for defying Zeus and hiding her boyfriend, Orion. Her task: make three human matches without her powers before her time runs out, or Orion will die. She enrolls in human high school, totally clueless about lots of human conventions (which suggests that she never really paid attention before). She meets Charlie, a charming drummer who's newly enrolled as well and struggling w

Eros (the daughter of Aphrodite, who is NOT a fat male cherub!) has angered Zeus over her relationship with Orion, so she is banished to earth with her mother until she can match make three sets of mortals. Renaming herself True Olympia, she descends on Lake Carmody High like a force of nature: outspoken, inappropriately dressed, and much too royal in her attitude. The same day, another new kid starts. Charlie's father is a football coach, but Charlie prefers music. He tries out for the cross co ...more

The first book in the True Love series is predictable and silly, but completely adorable. And just look at that gorgeous cover! Eros and her mother, Aphrodite (yes, it's partly a mythology story) are kicked out of Olympus because of Eros' love of Orion and Aphrodite's aiding and abetting of their romance. Zeus banishes them to Earth until Eros can successfully pair 3 couples. She must make 3 true love matches. And she only has a certain amount of time to make it happen. And just to give her some ...more

I couldn’t wait to start reading Only Everything by Kieran Scott. I had read her ‘He’s So/She’s So’ series a while back, and really enjoyed the series. With Only Everything having Greek mythology involved, I was super excited to see what kind of story Scott had created for us. This book is the beginning of a wonderful series!

The story is about Eros, also known as Cupid, who is banished to Earth after defying the almighty Zeus for falling in love with Orion. The only thing that can get her back t

3.5 Stars. True, otherwise known as Eros or Cupid, is banished to Earth, and, without her powers, she must match three couples before she’s permitted to return to the heavens and the guy she loves, Orion.

Mostly this is duel love stories, flashing back to True and Orion falling in love, and then in the present, a sweet contemporary romance between reluctantly smart Katrina, and black sheep of his family, Charlie, a drummer. These two were cute together, with just enough realism sprinkled in thank

In the beginning i was struggling to read this book, i didn't like Eros as a character only because her personality was that of an immature teenager rather than a thousand year old goddess who has spent her entire life reading people's minds and finding them true love. I also felt that the personalities of some goddesses didn't suit them.

What saved this book in my opinion was Charlie and Katrina, i really liked those characters and i was eager to learn more about them. Even Eros's character impr

Eros, the Goddess of Love, is in a bind. Zeus has taken her mortal boyfriend Orion and now his life is in danger. But Zeus always enjoys a good show. He gives Eros a chance to save him by striking a deal. If she can inspire three matches of true love on Earth without her powers then he'd release him. But Eros is finding this task extremely difficult, especially when she's on a deadline.

What's written about the gods and goddesses we know from mythology aren't necessarily reflected in the novel.

This book could have been so much better.

First, this book is actually a lot better than the cover suggests. I personally hate the cover. The colors are nice but everything else is just...bad.

I really liked how this book started out. Greek mythology in YA is at that point where it's popular but not yet over done. I really liked the idea of Eros, a.k.a. Cupid, being stuck on Earth, having to learn everything as she goes, not really sure what's going on.
But no. Not all the chapters are from Eros'

I really enjoyed this book.
It was extremely girly and maybe not the best novel to have a Greek Mythology base, but it was really cute.
But then again, I read this book after an ENORMOUS reading slump and I needed something simple-minded to get me back on track. This book was perfect for that, but I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. It was very simplistic- not at all a book I would write to incorporate Greek mythology, but the author did an, overall, really really good job in keepi

I love this!! I think True is so super-cute and adorably klutzy. She's the perfect heroine for this scenario, and I just...ahhh. Okay, I'm a sucker for anything involving Cupid, and I normally hate cheesy teen romances, and the triple-dual-perspective thingy did sort of throw me off. Also, that fact that this is a trilogy and it doesn't tell you so until the very end. Another one of those. I mean, come on. BUT ANYWAY, the story is pretty cute, although it takes a little while to really hit its s ...more

I wasn't sure what to expect with this one but I will tell you one thing I didn't see coming was so many laugh out loud moments. Loved it! Full review to follow on my blog - A Life Bound By Books soon.

This book was an absolute joy to read! I loved the budding romance between Charlie and Katrina mostly because I just really liked both of them. I also enjoyed Eros' experiencing humans and Earth as a mortal for the first time. Her reactions to a lot of things reminded me quite a bit of The Doctor (which is never a bad thing for me). And Aphrodite just cracked me up.

There were also certain elements of the story that I thought were a rather nice change of pace from some of the other YA novels I'v
