Love is honorable but selfish. Love is a record of my wrongs.Love had fractured in trials but held on for the truth.
And the truth was he’d hurt me, yet I loved him. He’d left me, yet I followed him. But I was done with Léo Baudin. And as soon as the semester was over, I would be done with Paris. But until then, I would learn the rest of his secrets. The ones they whispered about behind his back. The ones that had the entire city watching his every move. The ones that held him hostage. But to know his secrets meant to know him. And to know him was to fall further for the man who’d already hurt me so much. I hated him for breaking my heart, but I should’ve learned by now that the things we loathe become the things we love. And just when I thought there was nothing left to keep us apart, the ghosts of his past came back to life with a truth neither of us could have expected. And lies that neither of us could imagine. As each layer unraveled, the choice between power and wisdom and love grew greater. And the consequences of our decision would be the judgment of this city.
But when all else fails, love always hopes. Against all odds, love always perseveres.
The Judgment of Paris is the second book in the Odyssey Duet. It is necessary to read The Fall of Troy (Book 1) first.

4 Ma Petite Bataille Stars ⭐️ 

“I haven’t been good to you, ma petite. My life here may not be good for you. Mais la vérité… but the truth is no matter how dark it is, the moon still belongs in the arms of the night.”

Beautifully written and set across the magnificent backdrop of Paris, The Judgement of Paris is the conclusion of The Odyssey Duet.   You need to be reading this if you enjoy a forbidden, age gap romance between a professor and student at its finest.  This is not a fluffy story.  Their love story is tumultuous, it’s raw and gritty and their expression of passion is nothing less then filthy, rough and demanding.

The Judgment of Paris carries on from the heartache and despair that are Professor Leo Baudin and Troian Milanovic.  With their affair being exposed at the end of The Fall of Troy, Leo has moved back to France, forcing them to move on with their lives from opposites sides of the world.  

But their paths will cross when Troian is accepted into a Parisian study program. Once again they find themselves in the same classroom; the agony and loneliness of being apart will consume them until the consequences no longer matter….

”The Exact. Same.”

”He looked like last semester hadn’t happened as he walked toward the desk in the front. Like he’d never met me. Like he’d never touched me… never fucked me. Like he never loved me. Like he’d never hurt me.”

”He was the same and I… I would never be the same.”

No longer prepared to be apart, they will need to overcome Leo’s past that no longer wants to remain hidden and it will do its damnest to keep them divided….
