Review: A Touch of Greek (Out of Olympus #1) by Tina Folsom
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.
If you love Greek Mythology and hot romance then you need to read A Touch of Greek by Tina Folsom. This is the first book in the Out of Olympus series and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one.
In the beginning I wasn’t too keen on Triton, the son of Poseidon. He is an egocentric, bad boy. Zeus catches him with sleeping with one of his mistresses and gives him the choice between to punishments. Not really paying attention he chooses the punishment that casts him out of Olympus and stripping him of his powers. He has to earn the true love of a woman before he can be restored to his former glory. Unfortunately when he first meets Sophia she wasn’t too impressed with him.
I really enjoyed seeing the different Greek gods make an appearance throughout the book. I felt bad for Sophia and how her cousin treated her. It was nice to watch Triton go from bad boy to a man in love. So if you are looking for something light and easy to read this summer then I would recommend reading A Touch of Greek!
