By Jove by Marissa Doyle with Giveaway & Review

Book Title: By Jove
Author: Marissa Doyle

Book Synopsis: 
For Theodora Fairchild, graduate school is a dream. The professors are fighting over her, she gets to study Latin and explore her knowledge of Greek gods with others who share her passion…and she meets Grant Proctor. He's as shy as she is, and oh so handsome.
As she gives in to her feelings for the man who's stolen her heart, someone seems determined to keep them apart—no matter the consequences. There are evil forces at work, and they have plans for Theo that don’t include Grant. When Grant disappears, surviving the semester becomes the least of Theo’s worries. Her knowledge of ancient mythology may be her best weapon, and relying on her wits and wisdom may be the only thing to help her save her true love.

My Review: 5 stars
I really love it when an author combines modern day with ancient mythology. This was a truly unique book from start to finish. I loved finding out who was really who while Theo was trying to find Grant. You'll never guess who he turns out to be! Theo was attracted to Grant from the moment she met him, he was attracted to her as well. Being who he is, he couldn't just come out and say it, Theo needed to figure it out for herself. Not to mention wrap the whole idea around her head - because this is pretty huge. She's got another professor interested in her, and he also isn't just a normal guy, but someone like Grant - but not the same. This was full of twists and turns, but they were so good and delightful to find. I loved the end and am hoping that this is the start of a series. (Crossing my fingers.) Because I truly love books like this one. The characters, the story lines, the blending of myth and reality are beautiful to behold and Marissa is just fantastic in the way she writes this book.
