Publisher's Summary

The 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 Good Story to Pass the Time

Triton, a bad boy Greek God, is punished by Zeus for sleeping with Zeus’ mistress. His punishment, he is exiled to Earth to find a mortal woman that will love him for him and not his good looks that make all the girls go OWWWW!!!! Sophie is a mortal that is trying to open a B&B in the midst of financial problems, a seedy contractor, and a deceiving cousin, oh, did I mention she has recently had a horrible accident that has render her mostly blind. Triton sees this as the perfect opportunity to woo Sophia because she is blind and she won’t be able to judge him based on his looks.

I decided to listen to this book because I adore Tina’s Scanguard Vampires series. Although the storyline is predictable, its redeeming quality is the interaction between Triton, Dionysus, Hermes and Eros. Tina has the ability to write a story that delivers humor and witty comebacks that causes the reader/listener to smile or laugh while they are listening to the story. The fours gods were hilarious and offer a nice shake up throughout the story. I also thought Sophia’s best friend was funny as well. As always, Tina writes some steamy, hot romance scenes. Seriously be careful, they might melt your headphones.

Eric did a great job with the narration. Unlike some male narration, they have a tendency to make the female voices shrill and too high. Eric did a nice balance with the female voice, making them feminine without high shrill. His narration for Triton curled my toes, yumm!!

Worth a credit, sure. The story is enjoyable and the characters are quite likable if not just a bit predictable.

Titus learn to love Sophia and learns how to be in service to another losing his arrogance in the process. I find the characters comforting and refreshing.

Titus leaves Sophia thinking he is under a love spell and doesn't want to hurt her when he forgets her when the spell wears off, but once he realizes that he truly loves her, he can't stay away.

No, but he did a great job with the voices and was easy to listen too.

Yes, I loved the story in book form and couldn't wait to hear the audiobook version. It didn't disappoint. It made my walking routine go by in a flash.

The Greek series is quirky, fun and sexy. You will like every moment with the gods. Folsom has a way to bring her characters to life and makes you want to know them.
