Review of Charmed by Erica Ridley

Description (from Amazon)

Cover links to Amazon

Daisy le Fey is good at a lot of things. Math, science, accidentally turning people into pumpkins... Unfortunately, she's not good at the one thing hiring managers look for when filling open positions for magical beings: Magic.

When she jeopardizes her apprenticeship by getting involved with sexy mortal Trevor Masterson, it's one disaster too many. In order to stay out of purgatory, she's going to have to ditch the human--and her one chance at true love.

My Review

If you are looking for a nice, easy, feel-good read, then this is it. This book is all about love, but also about finding yourself and what is most important to you in your life. 

The characters are all heavily flawed in their own way and this makes them very relatable, even with the magic. This leads to all sorts of funny, heart-warming, sad, and down-right sexy scenes. I enjoyed this book so much I very often found myself smiling or laughing as I was reading along.

Charmed was a hard book to put down, so I read it pretty quickly, but I also hated that I finished it so soon. There are already another two books planned in the series (the second one is coming out this Autumn/Fall) and I have just signed up to Erica's email list so that I will be notified as soon as it's released. I will definitely be reading more.

I give Charmed 4 out of 5 stars.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

My Rating System:
1 star: I will never post a 1 star review because this means it was so bad I couldn't finish it, and I don't won't publicly rate a book I haven't read all the way through.
2 stars: I may have liked the story but it was badly written or it may have been a boring story well written. Something about it kept me reading but I didn't enjoy it.
3 stars: A good, enjoyable read. If the description appeals to you I'd recommend reading it.
4 stars: A really good book that I thoroughly enjoyed and may even read again. I will want to read other books by the same author. Highly recommend.
5 stars: Reserved for books that blew me away and whose characters I can't get out of my head. These are books that I will definitely read again, possibly several times. If I read an e-book version I may even have to go buy a hard copy for my shelves. Why are you still here? Go read this book right now.
