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 w..Show More »ill 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.
Normally I love Tina Folsom’s books and enjoy her writing with much enthusiasm. But this book, not so much. The first book of this series was humorous..Show More », fun and entertaining. This book was just grading. The female character was naïve, annoying and I can’t feel sympathy for her. I mean really what did you expect after two weeks of dating? Are you really that stupid? I wanted to scream at the book, “Please stop listening to your best friend and grow a back bone”. Did Dio deserves Ariadne ire, sure he did? But punish him for his rudeness. Don’t try to make it something it wasn’t. I just wasn’t feeling this book. I still love Tina and will continue to read/listen to her novels, just not this one again. But I love Eric performance.
I really look forward to these lighthearted fun romances about the naughty but handsome Greek Gods Triton, Dionysis, Hermes and Eros and the troubles ..Show More »they each find themselves in. Which are all either orchestrated, helped or hindered by their Fathers and Uncles Hades, Poseidon and Zeus.
This time Hermes, the Messenger God, has had his winged sandals stolen and he knows just who took them but not why she took them. He's a confirmed bachelor and, despite being warned by his Father Zeus, has no intention of settling down. Penny a naive, caring, beautiful Assistant Professor in Ancient Greek History and Mythology was swept away by Hermes' awesome good looks and the sizzling passion between them just couldn't be ignored.
However, she's intrigued by his winged sandals and 'borrows' them after a night of pleasure and fully intends to bring them back but things go from bad to worse..... because as Hermes is no longer in possession of them this means all Gods are grounded unable to teleport and Zeus is furious and stuck in Olympia. Thing get a lot worse, as other characters become involved in the plot with devastating results, they will have to go through Hell before Hermes and Penny can ever hope to have a HEA ending.
This is a bit of fluff, it isn't deep but it's got intrigue, betrayal, suspicion, laughter, sex, great characters, witty dialogue and a charming plot as the H/H have to work together to put things right. This could be a stand alone listen with just a couple of encounters and references from previous books.
Worth a credit? YES and I'm eagerly awaiting Eros' story which is the last of the bachelor Gods to find love and I will happily spend my credit but will be sad this easygoing series is ending.
