Publisher's Summary

Oceanographer and professional gamer Cordelia Bourne has had an unexplained connection with water and aquatic life for as long as she could remember. With days spent taking photos underwater and nights spent streaming her live gameplay of video game Tides of Atlantis, even as an adult, she surrounds herself with anything aquatic.

When she meets pro surfer Simon Thalassa, her entire world begins to change. One look into his green eyes and she gets the sinking feeling that she's met him before even though she knows she hasn't.

But after a fateful day at sea, realizations pour in, and soon she discovers Simon is Poseidon, King of the Seas, and she has a special connection to him.

Another Great Addition to the Series

This was another great addition to the series. The character work and story line were well written and kept my attention. The narrator did a fantastic job of bringing the story to life and made this as fun to listen to as it was to read.

I received a copy of the audiobook and I am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

loved this second chance romance

I think this one is my favorite book in this series now. This book is a little different than the others in the series, but saying why would be a big spoiler. I'll just say that I didn't see that twist coming and it was a shock!

I really loved Simon and Cordelia together. The ending left me with some questions so I'm wondering if anything will be answered in the next book.

I listened to the audio version of this book and really enjoyed the narrator, Carly Robins.

Poseidon and Cordelia!!

I liked Cordelia. She has an unerring charm and the work she does to keep the ocean clean (clean in the book only, not in real life unfortunately) is delightful. I really enjoyed the second chance vibes in the first half of the story; it was so cute! Cordelia and Poseidon were lovely together and I liked their dialogue and how well they clicked.
One thing I like about the author's stories is the increase in magic/mythology as the series goes on. It adds to each story and keeps the world created by the author interesting.

This is part of a series, but each book can be enjoyed as a standalone. I would recommend enjoying each in order for maximum enjoyment of this series.

I enjoyed the narrator! I listened to her at normal 1.0x speed. She was clear and articulate. She did have some odd pronunciations that threw me off a little, but overall she did a good job!

Book 5 - Contemporary Mythos

This is book 5 in Spade's Contemporary Mythos series and I love this series. I loved our main characters Simon (Poseidon) and Cordelia. The mythology twist is perfect. Well written with great narration (would love some dual narration tho). Fun and smooth flowing storyline. I enjoyed the secondary characters - especially the dynamic with Cori and her BFF. More sweet than steam and some laughs and danger tossed in too make this a read / listen that won't disappoint. Definitely looking forward to more in these wonderful twists where our favorite and not so favorite greek gods find their HEA!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I voluntarily provided this review.

Loved it!

The contemporary Mythos series gets better and better with each book. Poseidon is definitely one of my favourites. It's a wonderfully written second chance romance with a fascinating premise wrapped in the mystery of mythology and the paranormal. Carly Spade has been augmenting the Mythos world and the characters, producing a refreshing and remarkable series. The storyline is engaging and captivating; it draws you in and connects you even more with the characters. Cordelia (Cori) and Poseidon (aka Simon) are an amazing couple. Their connection is deep, vibrant, and genuine. They both have a profound affinity for the sea. Elements of suspense, danger, and action are perfectly balanced with personal growth, devotion, passion, and desire. The way Cori and Simon's journey unfolded and expended was simply clever. I enjoyed every moment and can't wait for the next book in the series.

Carly Robins did an outstanding job with the narration. Portraying and emulating Cori and Simon's personalities, emotions, and connection, breathing life into their story. Poseidon was a terrific listen, and if possible, I would give more than five stars.

Poseidon!

This is the fifth story in the "Contemporary Mythos" series. It is a stand alone read wtih connected characters or Gods. It is a nicely developed story about Poseidon, the Greek God god of the sea, storms, earthquakes and horses. Cory has always felt a draw to the ocean. She takes pictures underwater, cleans the beaches for her charity and is a gamer at night. She is cleaning trash off the beach when she meets the surfer Simon. The connection is instant and strange things begin to happen. This is a good and fun second chance story with some mystery, suspense, some drama, passion and romance. I love the characters!!! The narrator did a great job on the story!

Love this author narrator combo

I love the way Carly brings the Greek Gods to life. She gives them a human touch. She also hooks them up with mortals/humans. This one was a hair different than the previous ones I've read. Which is great I like variety. This one is a second chance at romance I guess you could call it. As the FMC and the MC have a bit of a past.

Superb!

Poseidon and his wife, Amphitrite, both put work in front of family and their marriage suffered. When Amphitrite felt disrespected too much, she decided to walk away, but that meant walking away from her children, too. Little did she know that she'd be banished to the stars for not following through on Zeus's command. Cordelia, Cory, is a conservationist, happiest around sea creatures of all sorts, and a professional gamer with mad skills. She and her best friend, Meg, are always at work on the ocean and, one day, Cory sees a familiar face, but can't quite place it. When she hears a voice behind her, she turns to see that it's Simon Thalaasa, the world famous surfer. That voice and the face, how does she know him? Of course, he's really Poseidon and she's Amphitrite, and they're about to find out what they've missed since they left Atlantis. As are all of the Mythos books, Poseidon is just as much educational as it is entertaining. The Greek gods have never been  more interesting! Carly Robbins does her usual excellent job with the narration. Her pronunciation of Poseidon has an extra syllable, just a little off-putting, but in no way lessened my enjoyment of the audio version of this story.

Another Great Addition to the Series!

This is the fifth book in the excellent Contemporary Mythos series, a Greek Mythology retelling. I love this series! Cordelia (Amphitrite) and Simon (Poseidon)'s story is original, sweet, funny, and entertaining. The storyline is complex, and intriguing, filled with mystery and twists and turns. The supporting characters are great. Carly Robins did an excellent job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward for more in the series. #StoryOrigin

Interesting mix of real world and mythology

This book is just as interesting as the others in the series. Poseidon is masquerading as Simon, a pro surfer when he meets Cordelia, an oceanographer. Both have the feeling they have met before... and they have.
This book is delves far more into the mythology than any other in the series. There are a ton more cameo's from other gods, and you hear/learn far more about all their stories. I know very little about Greek mythology so the stories were interesting to hear, although I have no idea how close to the actual stories they are.
This book isn't about these two getting together, it's more about them dealing with their pasts before they can move forward.
It was a very interesting read and I really enjoyed it.
The narration was really good and definitely helped pull me into the story, I would listen to Carly Robins again.

Fun! Fun! Fun!

I love reimagined Greek mythology, and add a romance theme and I am hooked. Carly Spade kept me entertained with Poseidon's story, full of action witty banter and laugh out loud scenes. Simon/Poseidon is a surfer, and is take with Cori, and aquatic photographer. What Cori doesn't realize is that Simon is her long lost love, and now the two get their second chance at forever love! The story is original and funny! The banter between Cori and Poseidon had me smiling and their chemistry is off the charts. But nothing is every easy when it comes to the Gods. Assimilating back to the realm is tough and leads us to a cast of characters that just add to the entertainment. From Hypnos to Medusa it's a fun time getting to know each and every one. Surprises, twists and turns and a love for the ages, Spade leaves us open ended as Poseidon and Cordelia continue to try to find their daughter. Can't wait to see how it all turns out.

Carly Robins is our storyteller and as always, she is fabulous. Comedic timing, suspenseful build up, and a knack for incredible character voicing, she creates a world to escape to. I thoroughly enjoyed her performance.

Perfect

I really enjoyed Poseidon (Simon) and Amphitrite (Cordelia) story . I love how her pet fish did weird things and how the sea life all flocked to her when she was on a photo shoot .

Brilliant adaptation

This is an excellent addition to the Contemporary Mythos series. Poseidon@s queen has been reincarnated many times over the years, but this is the first time he recognises her. Cordelia Bourne feels there is something familiar about him but never in her wildest dreams did she imagine the truth.
Great read and wonderful narration
