Review: A Touch of Greek
Title: A Touch of Greek (Out of Olympus #1)
Author: Tina Folsom
Triton, the son of Poseidon is a playboy. He is well known for his trysts with women. Even women that are with someone else fall for his charm and gorgeous looks. Triton is caught with Zeus's mistress and given two choices of punishment. He can choose from living on the mortal realm until he finds someone to love him for who he really is, or he can go to Hades for a few years. Little does Triton know how his choice will affect him for the rest of his life.
Sophia is trying to take control of her life after her aunt's death. She is starting up a B&B and has quite a few obstacles. After having an accident she has to rely on someone for help. Will Triton and Sophia fall in love while the Gods are plotting against them?
There is a slight whodunit aspect to this book. A few accidents seem to pop up during the renovation of the B&B. At first I wasn't sure if they were intentional, or accidental. A little bit later in the book it cleared that right up for me.
I love the Greek mythology aspect of this book. I haven't read very many books that include the actual lives of a God so I really enjoyed those parts. However, I did feel that some of the plot was slightly predictable. I only say this because I have read numerous romance novels, but it is pretty much the same basic plot that is in almost all of the other romance books. While that did take away a little bit of the impact for me, I felt this was a pretty solid book that romance readers will enjoy.
There is sexual content in this book.
