Book Blurb: 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 rivaling 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?

Triton (son of Poseidon) has truly done it this time. He found another woman to seduce, but not just any woman. No, it had to be Zeus’ own mistress. This time the God over all other Gods has had it. Triton doesn’t really appreciate how in trouble he is, he wants Zeus to be done with all his talk so he can get to the next woman he wants to seduce.

So when Zeus asks which punishment he wants, option one or two, Triton is lost. He turns to his two best friends; Eros and Hermes to get some help to chose before Zeus retracts the offer.

Triton chooses option one, which lands him on earth… In America to be exact, which is NOT what Triton wants!

Imagine: A Greek God, too gorgeous for his own good (and he knows it), with no scruples, nothing sacred to him, a “bit” shallow and desperate to get his powers back and return home. And he’s loose somewhere in America.

Triton and Sophia meet in a bar where’s Sophia’s been “lured” out by her best friend, Francesca. Sophia does lose common sense when she sees Triton, but she’s just sworn she would never, EVER date a gorgeous and shallow man again. There’s a great scene where Triton accidentally overhears the two girlfriends talk together where Sophia calls him a himbo. Triton’s offended and tries very hard the rest of the evening to prove her wrong. But he doesn’t get what he wants – a night with her.

Sophia has an accident in her home, which is currently under construction to be a B&B, which leaves her pretty much blind and Triton grabs his chance when he hears that she needs a healthcare worker.

This book was a really great read, I truly enjoyed it. To see how a man like Triton – and we all know his type – could change that much, was amazing. Whenever Sophia and Triton are around each other sparks would ignite and it led to very interesting things to happening! When someone tries to harm – even kill Sophia, Triton finds himself feeling things he never thought he would experience and he can’t explain why. Both are in denial and so the game begins.

Just throw in some plotting Gods, changing of rules,a deadly accident and lots and lots of secrets and you’ll have a read that you will have trouble putting down! I absolutely HAVE to look into the second book in the series; A Scent of Greek, featuring Dionysus, the wine God. From the look of the blurb from the book he’s gotten himself into some well deserved revenge.
