Open House: Pool of Souls

Intrinsically woven into the fabric of human existence, Aphrodite, Titan Goddess of Love and Passion, dedicates herself to matching soul mates.
Rebecca Carol and Robert Corvin missed their original chance to bond when Ares, God of War, took control of Robert's career ten years ago. Their souls have naturally pulled them back together for a second chance at love, but...How far will the gods go to get their own way?
Will divine influence create another perfect match or will it tear them apart forever?

My Review

     * This book was received in exchange for an honest review.
    I was a little leery to read this book as it contains explicit sex scenes, which I was not aware of when I agreed to review this book.  That being said I never go back on my word to an author so I just took a deep breath and started reading.  Not considering the sex scenes this story was actually a very sweet.    Overall the storyline was great.  Gods and goddesses twisting and turning the human experience to meet their wants and desires is tale as old as time itself.  Aphrodite is one of my favorite characters from Greek mythology.  How could you not love the goddess of love?  In this story Aphrodite is find herself pitted against Ares, the god of war, in her struggle to bring two souls, Robert and Rebecca, together as they are destined.  Robert just happens to be the owner of a company that is developing a new weapon for the government and Ares does not want love getting in the way of its development.  It is quite entertaining to see Aphrodite and Ares try to outmaneuver each other.
   The story goes back and forth between Aphrodite and Ares and the human world where Rachel and Robert are blissfully unaware of the meddling of the gods.  Needless to say the road to happiness is not smooth for Rachel and Robert.  He is dealing with business problems caused by moving his company all the way across the country.  Rachel also has her share of problems, like her crazy ex that likes to stalk her whenever a new guy comes in to her life.  The closer she and Robert become the crazier her ex becomes.
   Overall this is a good book when you exclude the sex scenes.  I do wish the author would have added a little more explanation as far as the Greek mythology is concerned.  I do not remember much more than the basics from school so it would have been nice to have a little more understanding of their story.   It is a short read but still has enough going on that you don’t feel deprived and you can't help but be drawn in to Robert and Rebecca’s story, all the while hoping that true love will conquer all.  I read an excerpt for the second book and it sounds just amazing as the first, but unfortunately I will be skipping it as it also contains explicit sex.  If you don’t mind that sort of thing in the books that you read then I would highly recommend it.

Parent's Guide:  This book is for 18+ only!  It contains explicit sex scenes and moderate language.
