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...more

“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 t...more

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...more

1.5 stars


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...more

"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...more

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...more

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,...more

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...more

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...more

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

If she ever wants to go back to Olympus (and Orion),she has to make three love connections without her godlike powers. Being the goddess of love, Eros thinks is a piece of cake, but it turn out much harder to accomplished. Things with no...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...more

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...more

★★★☆☆ (2.5/5)

Only Everything follows three different points of views throughout the entire book; Eros/True, Charlie, and Katrina. Eros is the daughter of love that has fallen for a mortal and banished to Earth to make 3 couples fall in love so she can have her love of her life back, Orion. Charlie is a new kid that has a father that is focused around football. Charlie feels out of place at every school but now he is actually fitting in! Katrina is someone who just picked her self up again after...more

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...more

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....more

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'...more
The Cover Contessa
I want to thank Simon and Schuster for providing me with an early copy of this book (through both Edelweiss and physical copy) to read and review. I love Kieran's writing and have enjoyed her other books so I was anxious to get to this one. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my opinion or review.

Blurb from Goodreads:
High school romance is tough—even for a bona fide love goddess. Can Cupid succeed as a mortal matchmaker?
When Eros (aka Cupid) is expelled from Olympus for defying Ze...more
Susan
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.
Lauren
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...more
Janie
From the book description i had a completely different idea from what unfolded in the book. the first one being that i thought Eros was a guy, so you can only imagine my confused surprise from the reading the first page. luckily i recovered quickly from my mistake.
besides my stupid misshap, the book was not bad. it progressed nicely. the plot was action packed exciting but by the end you were rooting for True to finally get Charlie and Katrina together, with the encounter with Ty being the high...more

3.5 stars

Only Everything by Kieran Scott had a slow start for me but I have to say, once it started moving a bit faster, I found myself enjoying the story. I think what really did it for me were the characters more than anything. Yes, the story is interesting but the way the stories of these characters are intertwined was done well and I found myself really liking each of them.

As the story begins, Eros – the Goddess of Love – has fallen in love with a mortal (Orion) and through the help of her m...more

AudioBook Review:
Stars: Overall: 4 Narration: 4 Story: 4

I really enjoyed this mash up of Greek Gods and a high school here on earth. While we see Cupid as a cherubic fat baby boy with a quiver full of arrows, she really is a goddess that I in love with Orion but has been put on earth to inspire love between three couples, without any of her gifts. So down she comes, banished with her mother, and takes on the name True, to remind her of her mission.

What was most curious about this story, for me...more
Katie
Only Everything, the latest from Kieran Scott, was unlike anything I’ve read before. It’s a fun, fast-paced, romantic story that will have readers rooting for not only Eros but the couples she’s trying to match up.

Eros is a bit cocky, kind of dumb, and a lot weird, but she’s also a lot of fun. She’s never been to Earth for more than a few days at a time so she really has no clue how to act when she’s forced to Earth for the duration of time it takes for her to make three true love matches. She d...more

The book starts of with Eros (daughter of Aphrodite the goddess of love, aka Cupid) getting banished from Mount Olympus to earth, along with her mother who assisted her, by Zeus after it's discovered that she's kissed Orion, a mortal. The only way she can save Orion is by matching three couples without any of her powers. Once there she enrolls in high school taking on the name True Olympia and starts on her mission before her time runs out.

Now the number one thing that irritated me is that I wou...more
