My Review:

This is the third book in the series which combines a contemporary romance with Greek mythology. The intriguing mix of genre works brilliantly in this skilfully written novel where one of the seven Pelaides witches, Jenny, decides to participate in an extreme survival game show – much against the advice of everyone she usually holds dear, except Owen, the host of the show who refuses to go out with her until she has been one of the contestants ! To enable her to be included in the adventurous undertaking she needs to have a pretend boyfriend but finding one initially proves difficult until she manages to bribe Nikolai into joining her. Initially she believes Owen is her fated mate, but as the show progresses and evil hazards threaten the lives of her and Nikolai, the two are continually drawn to each other as they endeavour to keep each other safe and alive whilst also battling a powerful, malicious enemy who means to kill Jenny for her own nefarious purposes. Can the two survive the adventurous experience? Will they be able to continue resisting their mutual attraction or will love – and the will of the gods – help them both to survive to achieve their HEA?

The paranormal talents of the characters are depicted in a believable, easy to relate to manner, whilst the challenges, their locations and encounters are all described in a manner which paints pictures in the imagination of readers and taking them into the fast paced adventure to witness them for themselves.

This is an intriguing, well written series which I have thoroughly enjoyed reading. Each book continues the adventures but could be read as a standalone- though when they’re so good why would you want to miss out on any of them? They do come to an appropriate conclusion but also give a tantalising hint which teasingly leaves you wanting to know more. Personally, I can’t wait for the next book in this enthralling series to be released so I can find out what happens next!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis:

Even a good witch knows how to play dirty…

Pleiades witch Jennifer Marcos is certain that the host of Extreme Survivor is her soulmate. All she has to do is find a fake boyfriend, get on the show, and voila! She’ll have her destiny. Unfortunately, she has to rely on ex-Russian spy Nikolai Jovec’s six-foot-something of gorgeous, infuriating hotness. To make matters worse, the electric attraction between Jen and Nikolai is hotter than ever. But the only way Nikolai can protect Jen is by hiding the identity of her true Destined…him.
