OPEN HOUSE Pool of Souls book 1 by Krystal Shannan


I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.  It is a short story that I found refreshing to read.

Book summary from Goodreads:  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 personal feelings about the book:  First I want to mention how amazed I am that she was able to give a detailed story in just over 50 pages.  I was hesitant to believe that this would be more than just a quick sex scene.  What she amazed me with was a story that was heart warming, had some drama and was just easy to read and believe.  I am not really educated about the Gods and all the mythology that goes with it, but she had me as interested in that part of the story as I was with Robert and Rebecca.

The two main characters were just honest and real people who was willing to do what they needed to merge into a couple.  Since it isn’t a novel, it isn’t like I had over three hundred pages to invest myself into the characters, but she wrote them with such love and attraction, it didn’t take long for me to care about them.  The story flows perfectly, there aren’t any stand still moments that you wish would hurry and pass.  There isn’t a high intensity that makes you gasp and refuse to feed your family in order to figure out what happens.  It is a feel good short story that makes you believe in love and soul mates again.

I am giving this book a five heart, not only for the sweet story and the hot sex scenes but for the fact she proved to me that you can develop characters to the point that the reader cares about them in under 100 pages.  I shake my head in amazement because I rarely trust that my heart will be affected by short stories. I was cheering for Robert and Rebecca.  I am happy to say I am now moving on to her next book in this series and will be posting  a review of it soon.  Please make sure you check out all of her work at Amazon and Goodreads.  I know I have become a new fan of hers.
