Synopsis:
Middy Cherrywood does. She’s got more warlock than she can hex with Dred Shadowins. He isn’t just a billionaire playboy and Weekly Warlock centerfold. He’s a spy for the High Chancellor, and he convinces Middy to pose as his fiancée for his latest mission. Too bad no one told his mother before she slipped Middy a potion that will make their sham engagement all too real in just ten days.

My Review:

I haven't read the other books in the series, so I'm not sure if she did this world building as well. Here she builds a world not unlike Harry Potter's world that butts up against the Muggle or as she calls it the non magical world.  In this world Gods walk among the Magical people, things like griffins guard the doors & Merlin is the Bigger Boss.  Since even the most devoted & secluded understand something about Harry Potter, this new world wasn't that far fetched.

At first the mention of 'witchberry' & 'spelltops' I was like "huh? But why??". Then I stopped reading so deeply into the story and just read the book as it was written. I eventually came to like Dred & Middy together they just seemed to find all kinds of adventures to roll into. I need to read the others in the series to especially Caspian's story.  It's alright, a quick read that pulls you in & made you wonder who did what & why.

I picked several villains & was wrong & that made me love the story even more, it wasn't predictable.  And the little imp Sera Anna was an awesome character, I wonder if the author will go far enough to write her story??*hint hint*
I love watching (reading) Middy get Dred to want to be better, and I loved that Dred "knew" he wasn't a catch but didn't want to give Middy up either; as the story was revealed you realized he was a catch and a damn good one too. That dream sequence from Merlin?? Just way too mean. I enjoyed reading the love story that was there and the adventure that came with it.

It's four stars, well worth the read. Erotica Rating is three stars; the build up was good & the scenes were good but sometimes she tried too hard. Especially with the words 'muffin' then getting technical later in the scene by calling  it ' labia minora' & some of the scenes were just a little forced, especially the first time Dred & Middy were together, the magazine just made it weird.

Overall a good light fun read.
