“Best romance I’ve read in a while! Couldn’t put it down!”
Olympian Passion by Andrya Bailey is the perfect blend of Greek mythology, contemporary, and romance fiction. It has all the ingredients to make it irresistible. I found myself wanting to know how the Greek mythology and the modern contemporary life would mold. The passion between professor and student was like a forbidden fruit. Yet, it was the appeal of what should not be that pulled me in closer. The romance builds with every page. Heat, intensity, and the element of the unknown plays a huge part in this book. The characters were well-done. The heroine was a bit too addicted to the hero. I found that a bit unrealistic. Yes, there should be that pull towards the attractive Greek God type of a man, yet she was too heavily into him too soon. If she was attracted in the same way but tried to tamper it down or to ignore it and then epically fail- then, that would have been better. But it felt too fast, too soon. It had a bit of a resemblance to the Twilight saga. The heroine from the Twilight series was just as piqued into the mystery of a man just like every other girl, but it appeared she struggled too in getting the man’s attention at first. The ending was epic. I still have no idea how the journey between Nikos and Sabrina will end in the next installment. That’s right, there is definitely a cliffhanger leaving me wondering what’s next.
