Review: Spellbound by Ophelia Silk (2021)

Heat Factor: Medium-ish heat, tastefully and sweetly done

Character Chemistry: Just so meant to be.

Plot: Two deeply lonely women find themselves thrown together in a deep and scary wood and end up finding themselves (but together)

Overall: This was like a Matryoshka doll of a story–so many details that just kinda stick in your brain and cling in the best way.

Review: The Elementalist by S.N. Hunt (2020)

Journey to Zlorta, Book 1

Heat Factor: There’s a fair amount of fantasy sizzle in here.

Character Chemistry: It was oddly flat, considering the fated mates/whoopie frequency

Plot: Sarah is kidnapped from her home after a foiled assault and brought beyond the Veil, where she learns that she is a key player in an attempted sort of magical coup, only she had no idea magic even existed.

Overall: This had so much potential but it just wasn’t fully formed.

*TW – attempted sexual assault.

Review: Snowspelled by Stephanie Burgis (2017)

The Harwood Spellbook, Book 1

Heat Factor: She thoroughly compromises him, but there’s nothing explicit

Character Chemistry: They complement each other – if only they weren’t so pig-headed about communicating!

Plot: Disgraced magic-user has to save the world from terrible snowstorm and evil fairy

Overall: Excellent worldbuilding, fun fantasy, middling romance

Review: Black Witch Magic by Mila Nicks (2020)

Paranormal Hunters, Book 1

Heat Factor: They have extremely bad sex and are both absolutely mortified. This scene is excellent. (There is also a bit of good sex at the end.)

Character Chemistry: They’re both misanthropes who like reading. I buy it. 

Plot: Selene’s family is cursed. And she’s a witch. Aiden is a paranormal investigator who definitely does not believe in magic and wants to do a show about her grandma. 

Overall: Mostly fun

Review: Hex, Love, and Rock and Roll by Kat Turner 2020

Coven Daughters, Book 1

Heat Factor: 🍆🍆 (that means his firm penis leaves his pants twice)

Character Chemistry: Insta-lust, but they are both broken so they complete each other. 

Plot: Novice Witch hexes Rock God old enough to be her father. Lots of woo-woo shenanigans ensue. 

Overall: I could not suspend my disbelief enough for this one
