Blurb: Finding the man of your dreams can be a real nightmare….

As the future prima, or head witch of her clan, Angela McAllister is expected to bond with her consort during her twenty-first year, thus ensuring that she will come into her full powers at the appointed time. The clock is ticking down, and her consort has yet to make an appearance. Instead, her dreams are haunted by a man she’s never seen, the one she believes must be her intended match.

But with time running out, and dark forces attempting to seize her powers for their own, Angela is faced with a terrible choice: give up her dreams of the man she may never meet and take the safer path, or risk leaving her clan and everyone in it at the mercy of those who seek their ruin.

Review: I don’t know how in love with this book I am but, I know that I was able to finish it in one day, which is saying something since I started reading it on Easter.

One of the things that was a little off putting was the constant description of the clothes and rooms she was in. There could have been a better use of that space but, the rest of it was interesting, just all that description seemed to take away from the story itself.

A little spoiler but I feel that I do have to warn future readers of an instance in the book, there is attempted date-rape in the first few chapters. The reaction to it was a little disappointing and made it seem like it was all her fault. I will tell you right now, it is never the victims fault, no matter the circumstances. No means no, unless there is an agreement between two consenting adults and they use a safe-word instead of no.

Honestly, I thought this book could have been shorter, it really didn’t need to have all those descriptions of clothes, that just made it drag out and finding the guy of her dreams, literally, took longer than I thought. It felt like she wouldn’t even find him in the story at one point, it just kept going on and on.

I fully expected the outcome, I pretty much knew where he was going to come from but the way he showed up is completely shocking and it was brilliant.

Don’t let the unnecessary descriptions of clothes put you off from this, it’s a great story all-in-all.

Thank you for reading my review.
