Selfish and gorgeous Greek God Triton is cast out of Olympus after seducing Zeus’ mistress and can only gain reentry if he finds a woman who loves him for his kindness and selflessness, not his beauty. When the mortal Sophia – recovering from an eye operation and virtually blind – needs a home healthcare worker, he takes on the role, hoping she will be his ticket home.
While defending Sophia from an unknown adversary, Triton’s protective instinct emerges. At the same time rival Gods do everything to doom him to failure. And even if Triton can win Sophia’s love, will he throw it away to return home, or will he lose his own heart to the only woman who truly sees him?
A Touch of Greek is the first book in the humorous and sexy paranormal romance series Out of Olympus following the romantic adventures of four Gods: Triton, Dionysus, Eros, and Hermes.
Triton, son of Poseidon has found himself in a mess and now he has to face his punishment from Zeus- his crime seducing Zeus's mistress. His punishment to find a woman that would love him not for his devastating good looks(after all he is a god) but for his kindness and selflessness.
Sophia, has had it with men - at least ones that made her heart flutter as well as other areas. She has no time for such things, she has too much on her plate that is until Triton walks into her life.
What I liked:
What did I like about this book? How much time do you have? Seriously though, I loved this book. I felt totally connected with the characters. To me a good book is one that I could emotionally relate too and this one did it all the way through to the end. I laughed, screamed in anger(silently of course) and felt the pain as well. The hot steamy scenes had me wanting to turn my heat down to cool off.
I also enjoyed the interaction with the Gods. She did a excellent job in incorporating them into the storyline and made them believable.
As for the plot line it was smooth and read well. I didn't once feel like saying hurry up already get to the point.
What I didn't Like:
There is only one thing and that is it ended, I could have continued reading this book forever. Well not forever but you get the point.
The next book in the series (Dionysus) is planned for June/July. And I can't wait!
So if you love Greek Mythology, mixed with hot, sexy romance oh did I forget to mention Hot Sexy Greek Gods? Well then this book is for you. Would I recommend it YES!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
