Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Solstice Sizzle (Pagan Pleasures Bk 2)
Johan Rogers is a sharpshooting family lawyer who is close to burn out. This is affecting his ability with the Magiks and his once reliable skill as a medium. On a whim, he’s come south to Edi’s shop, Crystal Sands, for a break over the summer solstice. He’s looking for fun, nothing serious, and definitely no commitment.
That’s how things start with the stunning Nova. But then a side of him he’s repressed to be a lawyer begins to emerge. Can he get a handle on his emotions, or will Nova help him to realize his full potential with the Magiks?
Nova McGinnis is struggling to find her unique skill with the Magiks. She’s been repressed too long, and despite Edi’s help, her ability is erratic at best. It’s been nearly a month of trying and she’s made minimal progress. Frustrated, she sees Johan as the perfect distraction.
It was meant to be just a summer love affair, but things are developing into something more lasting. Will a hot love affair prevent Nova from discovering her Magik ability, or help her?
I read and thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this Magik series so jumped at the opportunity to read this sequel. In the first book, Edi has escaped from her family aspirations to set up her own shop, Crystal Sands. In this sequel, Johan Rogers is concerned that his skills as a medium are proving unreliable and that’s affecting his role as a lawyer. He needs a break and to recharge his batteries so has travelled to visit Edi’s shop. It is there that he encounters Nova, another Magik but she’s not sure of her skill because she’s repressed it for so long. She’s working closely with Edi to try to discover just what it is but without success.
The initial encounter with Johan definitely had me grinning! As the two admit to their attraction but reluctance to commit, they decide to have a summer fling but what will happen at the end of summer? With hot romanced, a touch of Magik, discoveries and new beginnings all added to the mix, this is a great sequel and a fun read. The characters are well developed and comparatively down to earth despite their magik abilities. The story has great humour, lots of Magik and is a delightful, quick read. I’ll definitely be looking out for more in this series in future!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and being surprised just how much I enjoyed it.
