It was chance, guided by the hands of a god that brought them together. Would their choice bind them, or be the cause of their destruction?
Natasha never believed that the fairy tales she read to her niece about supernatural beings were real. She read them to give her niece hope. She, herself, had all but given up on love, until the fateful day when she went scuba diving in

I loved this book. Can't wait till I get my hands on the next one. The book was a very easy read. The characters were easy to keep track of and easy to fall in love with. I would highly recommend this one!

I am halfway through on Choice now and so far the story is interesting. The build up is a little slow with so much on Natasha and her family, her interaction with her niece. It is nice and make you feel warm with the love you convey between them, the support of her sister that you reveal in these chapters.

The part where Tash meets up with Keith at the airport, pub (krypt keeper) and on the ship. The feelings she had and the change of her feeling for him now is so telling of her emotional growth

Do you believe soulmates? I don’t mean just on I love this person, I am talking your soul split in half until this person is in your life soul mates. Well Tash believes in soul mates, but in some ways has given up hope on finding hers. She had a great love that ended badly around the same time as her sister did who was pregnant at the time. So the two sisters bonded even more and became great parents to little Ashlyn(which I love the name for the little girl). Both work as a team to give this ...more

A Gripping Fantasy World....

First of all, I love Jean Booth's imagination. She has taken some used ideas, and made them into something new and refreshing, creating an epic fantasy world that is easy to lose yourself into. I especially loved how Greek mythology was woven into the paranormal elements of the book, it was both an interesting and fitting take on the Atlantis myth.

There were several grammar issues, but certainly not ones that detracted from the style or the creation of the story. Just
Choice is an interesting fantasy novel. If you like eclectic paranormal/fantasy – type books, you should like this book.

Characters: Choice was written in first person, through Natasha (Tasha). Tasha was an independent female who had an unsuccessful romantic life and didn't like to show weaknesses. The character had qualities that I could relate to. Throughout the book, the reader learns more about her. For me, I cannot say that she was a multidimensional character, but she was not simply one-dim

3.5-4 stars.

Natasha James, devoted career woman, aunt and sister; decides to fulfil her life long dream of diving in the Bermuda triangle. On the cruise to Bermuda she is joined by her ex-fiance, and only man to have ever broken her heart, Keith. A little fling begins to blossom... but instinctively Tash knows he is not her soul mate. A diving accident transports her to a new/old world, and thrusts her into the arms of Raifuku. Her true souls mate. But prophecy is not on their side.

Wow- there is

WOW!!! What an adventure! I loved reading Choice, Jean Booth is a fabulous writer. The imagination and detail that went into writing this book is phenomenal. I mean who would have thought to mix Greek Mythology with Paranormal. And not just any paranormal but shape shifters and vampires. It was really mind blowing. There were some twists in the story that caught me unexpectedly which I love. I hate when I read a book and everything is just as you expect it to be. I loved Natasha's character she ...more

Shelves: mythology, romance
I pretty much always enjoy a book based on mythology, whether it is Greek, Roman, Egyptian…whatever! And this book definitely had LOADS of mythology in it. And to top it off, the mythology also has a paranormal twist or two. Also, much of this book takes place in (sort of) the Bermuda Triangle!

Natasha is about to go on a cruise to the Bermuda Triangle, where she has been dying to go scuba diving! It’s her 30th birthday, and she’s decided it’s time. She’s leaving behind her sister and niece, who

Very interesting read. Here you have a classic story of a woman left by a gorgeous rich man and she is left bitter. But then the story morphs and for her 30th birthday she winds up on a cruise ship headed to Bimini. Along the way she meets her once ex lover and they start their relationship back up when all of a sudden she "drowns" and she ends up in the mythical island of Atlantis where she falls in love with her "soul mate" just to be torn from him. It is a very , and again I will use, ...more

Choice…what would you do for love? It was a wonderful story of the trial and sacrifice two people make for love. A great mix of paranormal, mythology and modern day. Natasha loved her family (sister and niece) but decided to take a much needed trip to get away. On the trip she met up with a lost love, and discovered new adventures while seeing the sites and scuba diving. Discovering the lost city of Atlantis, her very existance was threatened until Raif showed her how far he was willing to go ...more

As I catch a glimpse of basic family life in the opening of this book, it is written in a way that makes me want to keep going. I am rewarded for doing so as Tash treats herself to a vacation and has some odd run-ins which are intriguing – each one more so than the previous. Suddenly the story takes an unexpected turn that I love just for the fact that I didn’t predict it. After many little adventures we are treated to a whole new (and beautiful) world and the characters continue to grow on me.

I received this book as a gift from the author. It was a totally enjoyable read. It was a little slow moving in the beginning, but then it got to the good stuff. I enjoyed how the Greek mythology was interwoven into the paranormal romance (I am glad I read the Percy Jackson books, which really introduced to me mythology). The characters were smart and endearing. The sexual attraction of Natasha and Raifuku was very intriguing. The cliffhanger at the end book was very surprising, I did not expect ...more

This first book in the Origins Series had me pulled in from the very beginning. I have not read a book this good in a long time. I was on the edge of my chair; couldn’t wait to turn the page to see what would happen next. This is a wonderful story of true love, finding one’s soul mate, sacrifice, adventure, excitement. I went through many emotions while reading this book. I cannot wait to read the second one, which I have right here and I’m going to dive right in! The ending was amazing; ...more

I think this book was a good plot it just started off very slow. She (Tasha) is going on a cruise and the first person she runs into is her ex (Keith). She is still in love with him and they fall right into bed. She drowns and from there she meets Raif in Atlantis. They are soulmates. She falls in love with him but can't stay with him. I am a HEA kind of girl ant this just does not have the ending I crave. Its a cliffhanger .

This book is almost a fantasy within a fantasy. It is a wonderfully written account of a woman who celebrates her 30th birthday by going on a cruise and winds up in a world of wonder and mystery after a diving expedition. The characters are well written and the story does lead you into the sequel. I'm anxious to see how the other minor characters play a part in what is yet to come. Very nice read!

A nice little supernatural romance. This was the first romance I have ever read that incorporates the myths of Atlantis and Greek gods alongside contemporary times. It also includes a unique vampire origins storyline. A pleasant and quick read, perfect for the upcoming summer!

This is a pretty good story. It is a little more descriptive than I which I mean it drags a little in places as every nuance is explained. Still I enjoyed a tale of Atlantis and will p err probably look for more.

Love, Family, Relationships, Suspense, and Atlantis. A fun read, a well-developed story, slow at first but draws you in with the re-imagined Atlantis tale. Would I read the second book? Yes.
