From bestselling author Dr. Rebecca Sharp comes an enemies-to-lovers epic romance with a forbidden twist...
Love is angry. Love is blind. Love is envious and loathful.And I loathed L�o 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.
The Fall of Troy is the first book in the Odyssey Duet.

5 Ma Petite Stars ⭐️ 

The Fall of Troy is the first book in The Odyssey Duet and it was perfection.
A sexy age gap romance between a French angry Professor and a traumatized young woman; I knew I loved this story within the first chapter.

Crossing paths at a cafe, a bookstore, a bar and then the classroom, Leo and Troian never stood a chance. Too many coincidences not to be fated; two broken souls destined for each other.

Neither Leo or Troian were looking for solace; both were comfortable in their anger. They were barely existing, consumed by grief. Yet the attraction they both felt from their very first encounter would either revive or destroy them.

“Aux objets répugnants nous trouvons des appas.” – “In the things we loathe become the things we love.”

Leo and Troian had demons from their past that neither could move on from. Betrayal at the core of it. Although these two lusted for each other, it was toxic yet cathartic. 
This book was beautifully written with the magical backdrop of French Art and Poetry. This story will consume you while you are navigating through all the pain and suffering but good luck putting it down…. 

“We stared at each other, fighting to understand what had just happened—and fighting to not want more of it. He was cruel. I was crazy. Our ending would be tragic.”
