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 fiancé 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?

Review By

Krystal Shannan has done it again she has drawn me into the world of Aries and Aphrodite. Aphrodite is in trouble when the soul mates that she had matched has never met and died a slow death. Someone is plotting to destroy her to regain the Olympians power for themselves. Aphrodite needs Addison and Adrian to meet it’s her reason for being. Addison Connelly really has given up on men every time she goes out on a date it does not end well. Her best friend tries to set her up on a date and is very disappointed when it all goes wrong. Adrian is a police detective with the Nashville police department went on this blind date as a favor to his roommates fiancé and really blunders the date. Addison and Adrian both have a hard time trusting people. They both have had bad relationships.
Can Adrian and Addison learn to trust again so they can become the soul mates they are destined to be or will they just walk away from love. Back to Aries and Aphrodite now Aries is fighting to win back the love and trust that he lost thousands of years ago. All he wants to be with the goddess he loves but his parents don’t want him near her and is willing to do everything they can to keep them apart. I am so hooked to this series I was drawn into this story line with book 1 and I can’t wait for the next book in this series thanks Krystal Shannan for these awesome books keep up the great work.


Aphrodite lay down on the bed and motioned to Ares to follow. He smiled and snapped his finger, making her clothing disappear. The sudden rush of air across her bared skin hardened her nipples. Hot, liquid arousal pooled between her legs again.
“Ares,” she whispered. Her body thrummed with need. A moan escaped her lips. He parted her legs and pushed. She was open, vulnerable, and ready for anything he would give. White tendrils of her essence swirled around the bed, connecting with his as he climbed up over her.
She caught his gaze, and even more heat flamed in her belly. His eyes were dark except for the fiery red sparks of his arousal shining through them. He settled his mouth on her sex, and her breath released in a long hiss. One lick across her clit and she arched her hips toward him, clenching handfuls of his hair. Tension held her body in place while he worked her like the strings on a violin. Their essence continued to dance, swirling around them, and sending pleasurable jolts of energy surging through her body every time it touched her skin.
“Please, Ares. I need you inside me.”
“Mmmmm. I love to hear you beg.”
Aphrodite smiled and gasped when he pinched a nipple. The pain was short-lived, but it made her so hot! She literally wanted to taste every inch of him.
“You know you’re the only one that I –”
“I know.”
The weight of his body lifted, and Aphrodite shuddered with anticipation. His velvet head brushed against her wet pussy. She needed him to be inside already! Why was he teasing her so much?
