A Touch of Greek by Tina Folsom


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 Touch of Greek is the first book in the humorous and sexy paranormal romance series Out of Olympus following the romantic adventures of four Gods: Triton, Dionysus, Eros, and Hermes.

My Review

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This very sexy trashy-romance combines the best of two worlds:  Hot romance and Greek Mythology.  Better yet, it was attention grabbing, and was attention keeping!  You can’t help but love a book that will do that. 

So, at first I didn’t like Triton, but then again, I don’t think you were supposed to.  Triton was such an ass, but I love the changes that happened over time of the book.  He went from being asshole playboy to actually caring for Sophia.  The hoops he jumped through at first was because of his selfishness, but later the hoops he created for himself to jump through were amazingly sweet. 

Sophia is a self-confident woman, who has had a hard time since she was a child.  She has seen the gods, and mystical creatures since she was a small child, and has thought that she was going crazy for years.  The fact that she didn’t like Triton at first was great, but it was fun to see what did once she realized that he was the one wooing her. 

To add to the greatness of the book is the mystery on what is actually going on in Sophia’s house turning B & B.  All the accidents, and changes in supplies.  You know what is going on, but you just aren’t sure what it is. 

High point:  Seeing Eros, Dionysius, Zeus, and Neptune in all their Greek god glory, and what potential asses they can be/ are.  I think it makes Greek mythology come to life :P!

Another high point was the location:  Charleston, SC.  As a South Carolina Girl, I love that this book has a wonderful combination of reality and mythology.

Final high point I’m going to hit on:  Steamy Romance Scenes.  OMGoodness, Triton and Sophia’s whirlwind romance does give readers an eyeful.  J  Very nice way to end a day of work!

Overall, I thought this was a great book, and I recommend it.  But this is for Adults only, as it explores some very adult subjects. 

Happy Reading!
