Three people. One erotic fantasy. And a twentieth wedding anniversary like no other.
Jeannie longs for the return of passion in her marriage. Jake craves new excitement in the form of another man. Pothos is one of the erotes and an aspect of Eros, the ancient Greek god of love, and this couple's distinctive yearning has called to him. By the power of the erotes he intends to rekindle the flame of Jake and Jeannie's passion in a night of desire that will be the ultimate platinum anniversary gift.
And when the gods of love decide your marriage needs a boost, they never do it by halves.
Platinum Passion is the first in this series of novella-length stories about the erotes: Pothos -- god of sexual yearning, Himeros -- god of sexual desire, and Anteros - god of unrequited/requited love.
The erotes are aspects of the primal god, Eros, and the children of Aphrodite.
Her influence will be evident throughout the Gods of Love series. But the celebration of the ancient Greek gods of love begins in Platinum Passionwith the gorgeous Pothos, god of sexual yearning.
Jeannie and Jake are in a rut. Twenty years of marriage and everyday stresses of life has taken some of the passion out of their marriage. On the night of their twentieth anniversary Jeannie and Jake is visited by Pothos the Greek god of love. Pothos has been sent to help kick start some of the passion back into this marriage. Pothos appears in both their dreams taking them on a journey where he joins in and helps them live out some of their darkest desires!
Platinum Passion is a nice short story packed with some sexy loving. Anyone who has been a relationship where sometimes that spark that was first there dims a bit can relate to the leading couple and what their feeling. I liked how Jennifer did the whole paranormal aspect of the book with the God of Love, Pothos visiting the couples in their dream. The way it was set up made the the whole dream sequence with the smoking hot sex between all three somewhat believable emotional and speed-wise. Seriously Pothos can visit my dreams anytime…I’m just saying.
It took me awhile to get into this short story. I thought the beginning was a bit slow and boring. I had to put it down and come back to it later in the day. Once I got past the whole am I dreaming is it real conversation the heroine was having with herself I was able to enjoy the fantasy and finish the book in less than an hour. I actually could have done without Jeannie since I found myself much more interested in what was going on with Pothos and Jake. Definite chemistry with those two.All and all Platinum Passion was a nice easy short read. It entertained me enough that I’d like to check out the other books to come from this series. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a fast sexy read.
