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.

Falling in love with a mortal

What did you love best about A Touch of Greek?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Touch of Greek?

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.

Have you listened to any of Eric G. Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

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

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.

Not bad but...

What disappointed you about A Touch of Greek?

The graphic, foul language detracted from the story. It is pornographic literature. I avoid books of this nature. There should be a rating somewhere about the language. The entire book was told by the end of chapter one.

Would you ever listen to anything by Tina Folsom again?

I do not know if her other books are verbal pornography. That will stop me from future purchases.

What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Eric G. Dove performance is what had me listen to the entire book.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Touch of Greek?

I would have cut a good portion of the pornographic language. The book synopsis didn't hint at this.

Any additional comments?

This book needs to be placed with labeled so the pornographic language will not be a shock to unsuspecting listeners.

T'WAS A JOY TO LISTEN TO THIS PARANORMAL ROMANCE

Naughty naughty Triton, a bad boy Greek God and a supreme playboy (well he's so handsome the ladies just throw themselves at him) but he seduces one too many women and the fall from grace thankfully gives us, the listeners, a very entertaining and enjoyable listen.

As Triton embarks on his 'mission' we encounter mythology, some memorable likeable and charismatic characters which includes his friends Dionysus, Eros and Hermes, a meddlesome half brother, secrets, murder attempts, a greedy cousin and a few twists that Triton's blindsided by.

This was a fairly lighthearted fun story about the instant attraction and sexual chemistry between Triton and Sophia which awards us a tender, steamy, sexy, touching romance as they both have to learn to trust each other - but unfortunately, outsiders cause havoc in their budding relationship with some disastrous consequences. Humorous dialogue finishes off the merits of this well written, well narrated romantic paranormal mythological journey of self-discovery, sacrifice and love as Triton and Sophia finally succumb to their inevitable destinies.

Worth a credit? It's left me panting for more, so that's a definite YES and I can't wait for book 2 A Scent of Greek which is Dionysus' love story.

Good Start to the Series but suspend reality!

This was a cute take of modern Greek Gods in the 21st Century. Although the God's were not 100% accurate in their positions, the author had fun with it. A few things bothered me though. 1. The best friend essentially disappeared after she went on a business trip. 2. The h was supposed to be strong but she was essentially a doormat. 3. The H is shocked that he was daydreaming towards the last half of the story because he never does it yet daydreaming is what got him stripped of his powers and sent on his journey. I will listen to the second book and hopefully will find out if the best friend is still alive.

Love is blind.

I apsolotly love greek mythology! And I always appreciate a good romance about one of the Greek Gods. I did see bad reviews on this book so I was skeptical, but I went with my first instinct and listened to it anyway. And I wasn't disappointed. So good!

Tina Folsom does it again

This is a fun love story involving mythology. Ms. Folsom sure knows how to spin a story for the reader. The story is nicely paced and contains a little of everything, like love, comedy and suspense. The narrator has done a wonderful job narrating the story. I could close my eyes and envision the story playing out. I love this series.

Did Not Finish

So far I have listed this book as a DNF. It had what I thought could be a good plot.. It sounded intriguing.. but I got about halfway and the heroine was just annoying and the hero was too over confident.. I didn't feel any chemistry between them and the story tended to blather on about things that I could really care less about. - why she chose what kind of wall paper.. or tile.. etc. I have this in audiobook.. so maybe one day I might pick it up again and listen some more.. but...who knows.

The Narrator... His voice was fine, he didn't have many "voices" so it all kinda sounded the same.

Need new narrator!

I love to read and have read and loved all of Tina's books. I was very skeptical but found I liked to be able to listen & do other things at the same time. However, this narrator did not make it easy. When he just narrates he is good. His character voices are just AWFUL, especially women. Even worse is his fake southern accent which is atrocious.

Good narration but the story is nothing special

A lot of mythical characters playing typical story of playboy meets nice girl who doesn't immediately fall for his charm, and goes about trying to win her over for all the wrong reasons. With so many characters being Greek deities, Hades is brought up. I am always disappointed when they refer to Hades as Hell. Hades is the underworld for all afterlife. It's split into realms for penance and peace. Otherwise I thought the story mediocre quality.
