Addison Connelly has given up on men. She is disappointed yet again when her best friend tries to play matchmaker, and the match falls flat...or does it? Her friend knows all Addison needs is a chance, a little hope, and maybe a dropkick in the right direction.

With an extra push from Aphrodite, will this lonely soul learn to trust again? Or will she run from the only man who could make her happy?

Adrian Colter, Nashville Police Detective and certifiable bachelor, puts his foot in his mouth in a big way when his roommate's fiancé tries to match him up with her best friend. After making a horrible first impression, can he earn the trust of a woman who won't speak a civil word to him?

Adrian isn't the only one trying to earn the trust of a beautiful woman. While the God of War fights to rebuild the trust he lost thousands of years ago with the Goddess of Love, his parents do what they do best --show off their greed and selfishness. Will he find the hope and forgiveness he so desperately seeks or will his parents destroy his chance at happiness?

Pool of Souls is a wonderful series. I need more. Finding Hope by Krystal Shannan is a more in depth look into the relationship between the gods and the mortals, and even more realms. I love the direction of these plots and cannot wait for the next one.

Finding Hope was exactly what the title hints at, finding hope. We have two separate stories being told without them actually being separate. We have Ares and Aphrodite who are the constants in this series. The first story had them at odds coming to an end, but now they are more intertwined in each others lives as they are intertwined in human lives. This story is about Aphrodite pushing two people together giving them hope that their souls have not had for 500 years. Addison and Adrian live in two different places but a wedding of mutual friends has brought them together in this lifetime. Addison has stayed away from relations for the last 3 years after a horrible relationship. She meets Adrian during the week of wedding prep. At first they don't get along since both of them assume the worst of people so they assume the worst of each other. As the wedding comes closer these two seem to avoid each other more until the wedding night when they come together to find 2 missing boys. From there they begin to get to know each other in a way that they'd been avoiding. The growth between the two is slow going but as soon as they find the hope that they have been missing, there isn't anything that couldn't really keep them apart from each other. I liked that even though this story is supposed to focus on the humans, we also have the Gods in play. We get to see Ares and Aphrodite's love for each other be tested in ways that could end their relationship and humanity in the most horrible way. With other Gods trying to take down Aphrodite and her power, Ares steps up and give Aphrodite hope that she had long lost with him. So while things are going horrible with the humans the Gods are in just as much turmoil. With dual stories going on in one book one would find it to be confusing or just a horrible read, but that isn't this book. It keeps you interested in the plot and doesn't disappoint with any twists and turns that are thrown out at you. *I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Finding Hope by Krystal Shannan is the second book in her Pool of Souls Series. Each book can be read as a stand alone book but I suggest reading the first book as there is an ongoing plot. In Finding Hope, Ares and Aphrodite are back, this time trying to connect love weary Addison Connelly and confirmed Bachelor Adrian Colter.  Love is not easy, especially when dealing with meddling Gods.  I loved this story.  Lots of great characters with several great plots.   I don't want to spoil the story but I will say this is becoming one of my favorite Krystal Shannon books.  Highly recommend!!!

Addison has been burned when it comes to love. So she has given up. She has her Vet practice. Her Grandfather's Ranch. Who needs love. Right? Aphrodite has had different plans for her for a while. It was all a matter of finding her the right guy, her soul mate. Adrian had no intention of having anything to do with any of the bridesmaids at his best friends wedding. They are airheaded and superficial and not his type at all. When he first meets Addison he assumes she will be the same way. Boy was he wrong. Once he realizes his mistake there seems to be no way to change her opinion of him as he keeps doing everything wrong and embarrassing himself. But being snowbound together for three days may be able to change that. Aphrodite is getting frustrated. Nothing is working out as he planned it. Addison and Adrian are very stubborn. She may need to bring in help on this on. Meanwhile someone is trying to get to her pool of souls. And when someone finally gets through and steals a soul she may have to rely on her lover Ares. The only person who has ever messed with a soul before and caused this type of pain and chaos. Will Addison and Adrian be able to get past their weariness of each other. And will Ares be able to save Aphrodite when the loss of the soul becomes too much for her to bear? I would definitely recommend this book. This is part of a series but I believe would be fine if read as a stand alone but series are still always best read in order. I LOVED this book!!! I loved both of the male characters. I loved how when Addison needed Adrian the most without him even knowing it he left everything even with chaos all around him just to be with her just because he could not stand being without her and wanted to make things work. And Ares. I love that he was willing to battle almost his whole family to save Aphrodite, because he loves her and can't stand to see her hurt again. I could not put this book down!

A hot story with Greek Mythology! Sign me up! I loved the main characters. Adrian and Addison are amazing characters that I enjoyed reading their story. Ares is super-hot and Ms. Shannon gives him a lot of character. It's a story with suspense, love and a touch of wonder. Her writing is descriptive and really draws you in. I definitely recommend this story and the first story as well. You won't be disappointed!
