Will Cora’s heart still belong to Marcus?

Innocence is the first book in the Tales of Olympus series. Cora has just escaped the clutches of her overly protective mother and moved into the city. When a fun situation turns bad, she’s saved and completely captivated by Marcus. But as her innocence is slowly shattered, will Cora’s heart still belong to Marcus?

I waited until all three books in this trilogy were completed but I wish I had picked it up sooner! Innocence swept me away on the beginning of Cora’s journey with Marcus and I loved every second of this book! Cora is sweet, understanding, so dang strong, and I loved that her goodness just continued to shine through. Marcus is a little harder to get a read on sometimes, as he’s super closed off, has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders, but he definitely has a dark side that I couldn’t help but shiver in both delight and anxiety. I loved the lines when it was said that they would have been perfect for each other, if only they had met under different circumstances because it’s just so true! This book does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, and I’m already sitting on the edge of my seat, waiting to start the next book! There’s definitely drama and suspense, a lot of delicious dark steamy scenes, and the battle of good - and the writing just has you feeling what these characters feel! I loved it! Mr. Calihan was absolutely fantastic in delivering the characters, their emotions, and listening to a dark romance is soooo much more intense than just reading one, so major kudos to Mr. Calihan! This was a fantastic book and I am so excited for the next one!

Jaw Dropping!!💜

This book was exciting & angsty and and I can’t wait for more!!
So many jaw dropping moments. At one point I was so physically moved, I felt my heart beat just a little faster. What a wonderful feeling that a book can move me in such a way that I felt it deep inside.
Unexpected twists and turns like a roller coaster!!
The narration was absolutely amazing. Jack Calihan really captured each character and nailed them perfectly.
I would definitely recommend this book/series!!

Dark Mafia Romance

I WANTED to love this book. I love dark romance, I LOVE mafia stories.

As it began, I was so excited and I really thought the hero would be the savior. As it turns into BDSM, I lost all the wind in my sails. I’m all for BDSM when both parties are excited and willing. When it becomes this dominance fully one one side without the other side being okay....I get really frustrated. I know that we get to hear the inner dialogue of the hero and what his struggles are and why he actually is a “good person” but for me it just didn’t redeem him. I just really loathed him.

I fell in love too

I have been falling in love with the mafia genre lately, this book was so good and I can’t wait to listen to the next book in this series. I totally didn’t expect where this book was going.

The narration was very good! The narration kept me wanting more.

🎧Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

This is an extremely captivating, dark romance, with a couple twists that I actually had to listen to a second time to make sure I heard correctly. I definitely recommend this story to anyone that likes edge of your seat, holds your attention with suspense and intrigue.
I can’t wait for the next release in this trilogy.
Also have to mention that Jack Calihan did a fantastic job narrating.

Great chemistry

This book was written for Jack to narrate. Absolutely fantastic storyline with a tough Alpha and great chemistry. As you can tell I am a fan of Jack’s and I have previously read the ebook of Innocence but Jack brings the characters alive so very well. I’m hoping that you get to narrate the rest of the books in this series.

Dark! Intense!

I couldn’t stop listening! It was twisted, dark and intense. So much push and pull. You didn’t know if you wanted to be angry, mad, sad, cry, or swoon!

Ohhh and Book 2 I need it now!

The narration was awesome!!!

Terrific Story & Narration🎧Dark, Twisted & Intense

This book blew my mind, it is dark and twisted and I enjoyed every word of it. The storylines and characters are interesting, I was completely engrossed by it and could not put the book down, I needed to know what happened next. The characters are complex and well developed, my heart went out to Cora, she had a rough life, kept sheltered from the world. I give her a lot of credit to up and leave her home situation and try to make it on her own. Unfortunately she lands herself in other bad situations. Running away from one she lands herself in to Marcus’s club. Unknowing to her Marcus is the leader of an organized crime family and he takes her into his protection. She falls for Marcus and she is shocked to find out he is not who she thought he was, though a part of her thinks she did see the real Marcus, the one she fell in love with not the one he claims to be. I loved how well plotted this book is, he story is flowing in one direction then bam, the authors throw in that twist sending your head into a spin. There is plenty of drama, angst, some more great twists and some hot scenes. I liked setting of the story and the world dynamics I am looking forward to learning more about it and what comes next for Marcus and Cora. Thank you Stasia Black & Lee Savino for this great story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, narrated by the talented Jack Calihan. He does an awesome job performing the voices for all the characters, giving each their own distinct sound making it easy to follow who is who. He sets the perfect tone for this story, captures Marcus’s alpha attitude perfectly as well has Cora’s naivety and vulnerability. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Thank you 🎧@AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsessionReviewer🎧

I need more

OMG this book was amazing. Right from the beginning it sank it’s claws in me and made me hold on for dear life. This book was dark, drama, twisted, and oh so hot. Jack narrating this book made me feel like I was there watching the interaction between Marcus & Cora. I cannot wait for the next book.

Great story but ends with a cliff hanger

I really enjoyed this story. I didn’t realize it was a cliff hanger. So now I will have to look for book 2. I had many emotions while listening to this. I was pleased then shocked then I actually hated and was confused by Marcus. I felt sorry for Cora during more than One scene. This is a darker romance so if certain scenes bother a reader don’t go with this one because it’s a lot more than vanilla.
This is a first time author for me. It drew me in and didn’t let go. This story was moving and the characters made me like and hate them. Again I was not happy with the ending as it stopped during a change. I did listen to this on audio and Jack Calihan did a great job. Very easy to listen to and the different voice were wonderful.

🧨Hot Alpha-hole🧨

If you love an Alphahole then you will love this book! Sexy Dominant Alpha and the innocent virgin bring the heat! It didn't take long for me to get fully invested and now I'm patiently waiting for the next to come to audio. Jack Calihan really shows what a talented narrator he is with this one. No complaints all raves from me

A devastating emotional rollercoaster

This book was amazing. It was also a heart wrenching emotional rollercoaster! There has to be more because I can not accept the ending. LOL

Jack is one of my absolute favorite narrators. His deep, sexy voice brings so much life and passion to the books he narrates. I just love everything he does.
