THE FALL OF TROY (The Odyssey Duet #1) by Dr. Rebecca Sharp
Release Date: May 21st

FREE in Kindle Unlimited!


Love is angry. Love is blind.
Love is envious and loathful.
And I loathed Léo Baudin. My new art professor. My enemy.</iI didn’t move to Rhode Island for this. I came to forget the Troian Milanovic I’d left behind and start fresh where the damage and betrayal couldn’t follow.
But Professor Baudin wouldn’t let me.
Cold. Caustic. Captivating. He didn’t just push my buttons…
He lit them all up with the indifferent smirk of an aristocratic French asshole.
But how much I loathed him only made my need for him stronger.
To have him would be either victory or loss. There would be no compromise.
To have him would be war.
So I fought back.
But I was Troy. And he was the wooden horse, full of dangerous secrets I never saw coming.
I was the one who invited him inside my walls, celebrating without seeing through his disguise.
And under the cover of darkness, he laid siege to my body, my mind, and finally, my heart.
The first may be a myth, but this time the history books would show that if Troy fell, it was with her all.

It's not often that I am left at a loss on how to word my review but here I sit and I am totally speechless. How do I, an avid reader who enjoys blogging about the books she reads, write a review that will do this book any sort of justice? I have no idea! I am definitely not as gifted with words as the Dr. Rebecca Sharp and after reading THE FALL OF TROY I feel as if I don't come close Professor Léo Baudin will have me bent over his desk to spank my ass.

This book was filled with passion and heartache and I couldn't tell you which was stronger because it seemed that each emotion feed off of the other. This was a story about a young woman whose life changed in a blink of an eye and was forced to start over in a new town, things weren't looking good for Troian but she did what she had to do then she locked eyes with the most handsome guy she had ever seen, she refered to his eyes as 20,000 leagues under the sea so much depth in them, it was lust at first site. Professor Léo Baudin has had a rough go of it himself and that is also why he is in this small town in Rhode Island.

Rebecca Sharp is a fairly new to me author as I have only read one of her books previously. I did however have the chance to meet her at a book signing last summer along with her husband and she is super sweet so if you ever have the opportunity to meet her take it, you'll love her as much as her books.  I read a lot of erotic romances not necessary erotica but definitely books where the sexy times happens on the pages and not behind closed doors, as I was saying before I have only read one book by this author before so I wasn't sure how hot the scenes would be, let me just say one word SCORCHING! Did that peak your interest? How about if I told you I will NEVER look at a copy of Les Fleurs du Mal by Charles Baudelaire the same again!!!!

This was the first book in THE ODYSSEY DUET, with the second book due out at the beginning of July. I really hope you add this duet to your TBR list because it is just that good, remember over 17 please due to sexual content.

Happy Reading!

“Who told you?” I demanded, my lip quivering as the last of my tears tumbled down my cheek. “Who told you about my dad?”
His smirk was hard and fast. Careless. Like a hit and run, it left me shaking. My nipples poked against the fabric of my t-shirt, the stupid flower one I had on the other week. My hips pressed back against the door, a reflex so that they didn’t press against him. My thighs locked together, trying to stop his words from tapping more moisture from between them.
“No one had to tell me,” he ground out, staring intently at my lips that interrogated him. “It’s written all over your face that you’re searching for someone to fill Daddy’s shoes. Poor little girl searching for someone to give her attention and tell her that she’s pretty and perfect and smart.” Each word was spat out like it was a curse, one that made my stomach boil.
I hated him.
I hated him with every molecule of oxygen in every breath I took and every beat of my heart.
I hated him with the burning of a thousand suns.
“And what about you?” I shot back. “Aren’t you just searching for a quick screw to try and make you forget how miserable you are?”
“That person is not me, petite,” he ended flatly, barely managing to pull the mask over the enraged lust in his eyes. “Now, this is the last time I will repeat myself and save you. Do not find yourself in a locked room with a strange man again.”
