Goodreads summary:
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.

Thanks Donna for the great review! It's always wonderful to hear when readers were able to connect fully with my characters.

One thing: Dionysus' book will be a little delayed. In addition to a little hand injury, I also have another writing commitment, so most likely it will be more like June/July before the second book is ready (unless I can get Dragon Speech Recognition to actually write what I'm telling it - I guess my accent makes it hard for the software ...)

Thank you Tina for stopping by :) I hope your hand gets better, I seriously devoured this book, I am a huge addict of Greek Mythology its tied with Vampires. but anything to do with God's and Goddesses I am drawn too. I plan on buying the books in print too, I love to have the actual books in my hand.

I love Greek mythology. I've never read a book about it, however. This will be a great start! You've sold me on it with your enthusiasm for everything about the book. Nice to hear a book has everything I'm looking for.
