Book Description

Opposites attract…and drive each other crazy.

Freelance Magic, Book 1

Eight years ago, wizard Ashley Brandon thought his mentor was above the temptation to misuse magic. He was wrong, and the aftermath left him scarred. And determined to never again let anyone close.

When he’s assigned to a task force protecting an ancient relic, he butts heads with the infuriating, charismatic Frederick “Charles” Greer. The man is completely unreasonable. And so is Ashley’s gut response to his outrageous flirting.

Greer was only supposed to temporarily consult on the task force, but his admittedly unorthodox views on team building put him at odds with Brandon, one of the most attractive, frustrating men he’s ever met. The mission’s success requires complete cooperation, so Greer makes the first move to ease the tension.

An apology leads to bickering, which unexpectedly leads them to the bedroom. But as that tension shifts into something more fierce, a brush with the relic’s power turns everything upside down. Leaving the mission—and Brandon’s heart—in even greater jeopardy.

Warning: Contents may contain sartorial choices both exceptional and asinine, deception, thievery, magic, naughty language, and one hell of a MacGuffin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't fulfil its potential 8 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The romance was nicely developed and the characterisation solid and the plot interesting and enjoyable.

Sadly it didn't really quite pull it off for me. The world wasn't very fleshed out, and some of the exposition was a bit of a slideshow. Given the novel was not especially long this was a shame, as I could happily have spent a little more time with the main character.

Warning: mildish spoilers follow:

The denouement was unsurprising, and the ultimate resolution unnecessarily gruesome. I don't like novels where our romantic leads end up damaged especially where the inclusion of 'magic' gives so much license to make up the rules to suit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun adventure and romance 19 Oct. 2012
By Sirius - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What can I say? I love this author's works, the blurb promised some "from enemies to lovers" and adventure and magic and I was SO SOLD.

I was not dissappointed at all. Just note that it is as much a magical adventure as it is a romance, probably it is more adventure than romance, but romance never felt contrived or tackled on for me. I loved both guys, I thought magic was well done and relatively well explained, I thought story was well paced and fun.

Granted, surprise element was not really a surprise for me, but it did not make the story any less fun for me.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great story 10 Dec. 2013

Great story with a great world and exciting characters. I wish it was longer, or there was a sequel, and that we learned a bit more about Ashley's past but honestly, it was great.

3.0 out of 5 stars I hoped for better 21 Oct. 2012
By Peter Todd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the world building to sadly lacking in this gay urban fantasy, a genre that I love and read a lot of. The author did not take the time or effort to make her world believable. The romance was ok, though given the MC's history, more than a bit of a stretch.

I will probably read the next in the series, though I would probably wait for a few more reviews before I did.
