Author: Krystal Shannan
Series: Pool of Souls (#2)
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Self Published
Release Date: March 10
Edition/Formats Available In: E~Book
Number of Pages: 185

Warning: The plot thickens with a passel of pissed off Olympians, but Ares and Aphrodite are in for a double dose of trouble! More Olympians join the mix in Finding Hope: Pool of Souls Book 2. A jewel addict, a kick-ass possibly-virgin huntress, and an insatiable ancient oracle are just a few. But don’t worry; Ares and Aphrodite are still front and center.

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 fianc√© 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 Ares 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 desperate seeks or will his parents destroy his chance at happiness?

This book picks up right where we left off in Open House.  Aphrodite and Ares are still a HOT HOT HOT item.  We get to see a lot more of Aphrodite and Ares and get to see a bit of the other gods in this book.  I happen to love Gods and Goddess stories (I should since I happen to be Wiccan), and this one sure does NOT disappoint!  

Krystal Shannon has created a wonderful world in her Pool of Souls series!  In this book we have the story of Adrian and Addison.  We also have a bit of a mystery going on in this book or should I say two mysteries, which added a very nice twist.  

Once again she has strongly written characters and an enchanting world which will keep you turning the pages, late into the night.  There are some humorous bits in the book and a few make you heart race bits, and just that touch of sex that makes it a hot story.

I must say I HIGHLY recommend this series to anyone who loves a good tale.  This series has it all in my opinion.  I can't wait to read the next book in this fabulous series!

Dionysus nodded. “I’ll leave you to get settled. The festival opens for visitors in a half hour.”

“Sounds good.” Aphrodite flashed him a smile and went to work opening a few bottles of each vintage so they could breathe. She waved to Dionysus before he ducked out the front door of the shop. She leaned over, digging through the boxes Dionysus had left for her. Her back was to the door, when it opened again a few moments later. “Did you forget something, Dionysus?” Aphrodite turned and held out a bottle of the Red Ambrosia. “For your afterparty– Oh.” She stopped short and stared at the beautiful specimen of man standing in the doorway.

“No, ma’am, not Dion-is-us, or whoever you said. I just wanted to let you know I’m the police officer on duty for this line of shops today.”

Aphrodite appraised him slowly from head to foot and licked her lips. He blushed just slightly, and she smiled. His dark hair hung just past his ears, and a little bit of stubble increased his appeal. In fact, he reminded her a little of Ares. He was tall, nearly six and a half feet. His shoulders were broad, and his arms flaunted beautifully sculpted muscles. A tight blue tee shirt read NPD on the front and accented the effort he put into working out. He would make a young lady very happy, if he weren’t already. His dark-washed jeans and black combat boots completed his look.

“So sorry, I thought you were my friend who’d just left. Thank you for coming in to introduce yourself.” She took several steps forward and extended her hand. Aphrodite flashed him a big smile. “I’ll be sure and set aside a bottle for you of my favorite. Come by when you get off, and I’ll have it ready for you.”

His shoulders relaxed. He reached forward and took her outstretched hand. She threw a few more pheromones his way, and he gave her a gorgeous smile. A small electric shock passed between them. Her grin widened when she saw his soul. She’d been looking for him for a while.
