Publisher's Summary

They are ancient enemies. They are each other’s only hope.

Merope is forced to watch as her sisters die lifetime after lifetime. In his anger at their ancient rebuke, Zeus cursed the seven Pleiades sisters - six to die, and Merope, the youngest, to give witness. 

Through many centuries and lives, Merope has tried everything to avert disaster, but she has always failed. For his crimes against the gods, Orion is cursed to commit the unspeakable acts Merope tries so hard to prevent. Orion has little hope against the power of the gods - he is resigned that this cruel sentence will be his eternity. Until an unexpected twist of fate shows them both that this lifetime could be different. And that together, they may harness a force powerful enough to break the chains of destiny that bind them once and for all.

I loved the incorporation of Greek mythology

Meriah is a reincarnated nymph/titan, one of the seven Pleiades, cursed to watch her sisters die over and over in each lifetime. The only way to stop the cycle is to kill Orion, before he can kill her sisters again.
The book was a little hard to get into, with some quite implausible seeming things, even for a fantasy book. Mer and her friend talking about murder as if it's a simple, normal thing to do. Then there's the guilt she feels for annoying or hurting Ryan even though she's supposed to hate him.
Overall I enjoyed the book though it was a bit too romance-driven for me, but that's just my personal taste. I loved the incorporation of Greek mythology. I wasn't a big fan of the narrator, there were too many weird pauses and breaths etc. which jarred me out of the story.

Jessica’s performance

Ms Duncan made the characters come alive w her various vocal intonations. This would be a good book to introduce a bit of mythology to a teen. The parents would be glad that there is no explicit sex.

Orion’s KISS

I enjoyed this interesting story. An intriguing take on the curse affecting Orion and the Pleiades sister. Sometimes the fates can be changed...

Orion’s KISS is a well written story by Claire Luana and narrated by Jessica Duncan.

Charming Teen Romance Inspired by Greek Mythology

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

I really enjoyed this audiobook--it was a nice, easy listen with fun characters, a nice love story, and a surprisingly high-stakes plot. The Greek myths were used well, and they were worked into the story in a way I'd never seen before in YA lit. I love the little twists and turns, and I especially loved seeing how the characters navigated them. There were definitely a few turns that caught me by surprise, and I found myself really interested in the characters and their plight to break Zeus' curse.

The best part of this book for me was the characters. They were funny, realistic, and charming, and I found myself really committed to the love story once it got going. It did take me a little bit to get into the story, as the first few chapters were pretty heavy on exposition, but once it got going, it really got going.

The narrator was great, and I would happily listen to her again. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick and fun teen romance with an interesting use of Greek mythology!

Not a Typical Love Story

This was a great, lighthearted read without being fluffy. I was immediately sucked in. I had no issues finishing this book, even though I can dabble in many books at one time. I liked that there was a sense of adventure, as well as a mild love element to the book. However, the title left me longing for more of a love element. This book easily could have been a series.

It did sound like there was background noise, and the narrator could use a new microphone or room to record in. This book was given to me for free at my request, and I provided this voluntary review.

If you are not sure, go for it!

This was a surprisingly good and interesting read (as I had never before read anything by Claire Luana). It’s a kind of myth retelling and I’m here for it!
The narrator was very good and didn’t get annoying after a while (which they usually get for me).
I would say this book is for whomever wants a fun and light (without it having no content) read in the midst of a busy week. At least it worked very well for me...

A must read!

A fast-paced high energy novel! I loved how the book incorporated a fun humorous attitude while still having depth. The characters were well developed, and I enjoyed learning about their history throughout the story. Claire Luana did an excellent job setting the stage for the story to unfold, with descriptions that made you feel like you could close your eyes and see what was happening. The couple is endearing and one that you get excited about from the moment you meet them. I would definitely recommend to anyone who likes romance, mythology, and being swept off their feet.

I was given this novel in exchange for an honest review.
