Jenn D's 5 Star Review!!!

I was very lucky to be gifted this book and I am so ecstatic that it was!  They say don’t judge a book by its cover but I have to say with this book you can!  I believe this author has the most beautiful covers out there and the story matches it perfectly!  The book starts out with a great prologue with the evil Argo learning some valuable information that draws in you.  You know there is something that will go down but you’re not sure when, where, or what!  The story then starts with the beautiful Layla Callaway turning 21 and celebrating not like most 21 year olds but quietly with her 2 best friends.   Without them, she has no one as she lost her mother to a massive stroke just 2 months before and she did not know who here father was.   She receives a letter from her mother’s attorney to discuss her affairs.  At this meeting, her she is given a packet that will turn her life upside down.  Who she thought was her mother her entire life was actually a family friend of her real parents and that she has family that is waiting to meet her when she is ready.  They felt that Layla needed to be older and mature to be able to deal with this information.  She is just given a couple of clues to help her find her way.  She needs to go to Oregon and a small town coffee shop. 

She decides to follow her heart and search out the family she didn’t have any knowledge of.  When she arrives in Oregon, she meets the handsome Quinn who is immediately taken with her.   Quinn shows her a new a magical life she knows nothing about.  She quickly falls for Quinn as well and feels that they are soul mates and has an instant connection to him. She learns that her true family has been waiting for her but unfortunately her parents have both past and that they are witches and wizards that lived life peacefully with the rest of the world.  Before her parents passing, her Father spelled a ring that could only be unlocked by her to show her how much they loved her and cared for her.  I seriously loved the story of her parents, Aedan and Rhosewen.  Their love for one another just melted my heart and their tragic story brought tears to my eyes! 

For Aeden and Rhosewen it was love at first sight.  Unfortunately, another also had eyes for Aedan, Medea.  She becomes bitter and jealous when Aaden falls in love with Rhosewen and decides to go with the evil Argo to get her revenge.   When Rhosewen discovers she is pregnant, Medea casts a spell on her that makes her own body sick for loving her child.  My heart just breaks from Aaden and Rhosewen at this part because just when they find love and happiness, the evil wench has to show up and seek her revenge.  Aeden and Rhosewen decide the only way they can save themselves and their family is to go into hiding and have everyone believe she lost the baby.  The more Rhosewen loves her unborn child, the more pain she is in and the more she suffers.  I won’t go anymore into the story because I feel I would be giving too much away.  

This story is so touching and heartbreaking it’s beautiful.  It’s so well written and takes my imagination right where the writer wants me to go.  I am normally not a big fan of PNR but his story is purely magical.  It’s a wonderful story of true love and loss and I felt every emotion and heartbreak along with the characters.  This is the first book of three of the Mystic Series and I cannot wait to see what happens with Layla and Quinn as he introduces her to a life she had no idea that existed and she is a part of.   I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a good love story where it is a PNR or not because it’s just so damn beautiful!  I give this book 5 out of 5 huge stars.  Well done B.C. Burgess!!!
