Romance - novel
TBR reviewer: Luta Wolf
Marion isn’t running from her past, she’s hiding from it but she’s about to have to face it in a big way. Her ex is out of prison and out to get her. She can’t even spell a love potion, how is she suppose to protect herself? Her only chance is an elf with some problems of his own but he has sworn that he will protect her but first she has to learn to trust. Look how well that turned out last time.
It’s a short read with an entertaining plot. The writing is a bit all over the place and slightly confusing but had a good solid pace that kept me in tune with the story. I also really enjoyed the characters. Marion is a human turned witch and a not very good witch either and to make matters worse she is very much a fraidy-cat. Her best friend and room-mate is a bit of a slut but she’s full of heart. Then we have Aidan and elf guard to the queen or he would be if he could keep his foot out of his mouth, something that never changes through out the book. The characters are flawed in such away that I couldn’t help but find them adorable.
However the author could have taken the time to elaborate on some details. I didn’t always understand the world, as to whether all the humans know about the paranormal beings and how does a human become a witch? Then there was a point in the book were the ex intends to kill Marion but he wants her to put on a leather jacket and helmet before getting on the motorcycle. Is this maybe because of motorist laws or is he just a considerate killer?
Despite the questions I had, it’s still an enjoyable read. I might recommend Love Potions.
