Overview

NEW YORK TIMES & USA TODAY Bestselling Author Tina Folsom presents: A Touch of Greek (Out of Olympus #1)

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.

5-stars - Triton is just yummy as he's portrayed in A Touch Of Greek. Folsom knows how to write some steamy sex. In addition, the humor that appears in the sections of the story that involve Triton and his fellow young gods adds to the enjoyment of the story, providing brief moments of fun along with a very good romance between Triton and Sophia.

My favorite part had to be when Triton tries to explain what's going on to Sophia. His complicated and confusing story made me smile. It all moves along nicely. I read most of it in one night because I couldn't get enough of it. I was pretty giddy about their relationship. It's some very sexy brain candy. Tina Folsom, you may have me hooked.

A Touch of Greek is a well written story that has the reader laughing at the antics of Triton and the various Gods, cheering for Sophia when she resists Triton, and turning the pages to find out what comes next. I was impressed how the author brought the topic of Greek mythology ... Triton and Sophia are well developed characters ... A Touch of Greek is a thoroughly delightful book! I loved seeing traditional Greek gods in modern settings.

Tina Folsom has has become one of my favorite writters recently. After just finishing her Scanguard Vampires series I purchased A Touch of Greek hoping for another excellent read. She didn't disappoint me. This is another page turning storyline containing characters you just want to keep reading about. Can't wait for the next one in this series. :)

It had tons of romance, I liked the greeks gods in there, and it is set in modern time. I am really liking Tina Flosom's books, I have read the two Venice Vampyre novellas and they we great a little short. I think that is why I liked this one so much b/c it was longer.

Touch of Greek was well written. I didn't want to put it down. The story was set up well with "real" people in real life situations. My test for a romance is could I be in the heroine's place. This book passed wonderfully. It's a great read.

Combining the facts of mythology with the fiction of enduring romance yields a story full of plot twists and turns that, in the end, is as compelling and rewarding as Triton's.. ageless love for Sophia.
blaire hollier More than 1 year ago

Not true to any mythology which was disappointing. And needs a good edit.
Starrdust More than 1 year ago
This book kept me on the edge of my seat. It leaves you wanting to know what happens next. Wonderful read anytime day or night. I can not wait for the next book in the "A Greek God Romance-Out of Olympus Series." I would love it if the author would complete the story about Triton and Sophia. Telling what happens after the end of this book.(I do not want to give the plot or details of the book away)

I loved and enjoyed reading the amazing, fascinating, captivating paranormal story the fabulously, talented author, Tina Folsom, shared with readers a chapter a day. Triton has to face the consequences for messing around with Zeus's mistress. Triton is thrown down to earth without his godly powers and has to have a human woman freely fall in love with him. Sophia, suffering from a car accident, has lost her eye sight, and needs a health care worker. Triton maneuvers himself into working for Sophia. Triton unexpectedly finds himself developing deep feelings for a woman, a human woman. Read the highly recommended and wonderfully written love story of Triton and Sophia.

I agree with another review that it is slow to start, but once it gets moving it is an enjoyable read.
nnattie More than 1 year ago
I couldn't put this book down! Tina Folsom kept me totally engaged by incorporating some of my favorite elements to a story; Greek Mythology, Hott Gods, Humor, Gods that are Hott, Suspense, and Steamy Romance with Hott Gods! I'm definately looking forward to reading the next in the Out of Olympus Series!

Love this Greek mythology based paranormal! Well written, thoughtful, romantic, just sexy enough to make it hot and not overdone. This was my first read of Tina Folsom's, but definitely not the last.
lbassin More than 1 year ago
I love reading Tina Folsom's Scanguard vampires series. I was not disappointed with this book. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I love how she takes Greek Myths that we know and turns them around. Very well written and enjoyable to read.
