Release Date: May 21st
Add to Goodreads:
Love is angry. Love is blind.
Love is envious and loathful.
And I loathed Léo Baudin. My new art professor. My enemy. I 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.
“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.”

Book one of The Odyssey Duet
“In the things we loathe become the things we love….”
I think my IQ just jumped about 50 points after reading this! Seriously this story reads like a Greek epic poem.
The Fall of Troy is lush in its anger and its sorrow. This story needs to be read slowly and really savored. You are really going to feel the emotions of the characters bleed from the page.
The reasons for Troian’s change in her life plan is going to rock you and I found myself questioning what my reaction would be. I could totally empathize with Troian’s plight and what made her uproot her whole world.
Léo’s anger and rage just screamed at me when I was reading it. His purgatory is just as harsh as Troian’s and I could so see why they would be drawn to each other.
Troian and Léo’s story is complicated. So complicated and yet so honest. The anger and scars that both of these characters have is going to leave a mark on you.
This isn’t a hearts and flowers kind of romance, this is gritty and raw. This is truly a story of love and hate. Get ready for an epic read in this story! I cannot wait for the second book in this duet!
