Prepare to be… Charmed!
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
I enjoyed reading Charmed. It was a sweet, romantic and sexy story. Ridley writes extremely well and I did not find it hard to follow the story line. The world she created for Daisy (tooth-fairy apprentice) and Trevor (human) was quite enjoyable. However, there were some parts that I found to be silly and unsuitable for the story line. Then again as I continued reading in all made sense, the main character Daisy le Fey is a true spirit. She is a bright spunky 27 year-old who is on a mission and someone who has the determination to get what she wants. And what is it that she wants? Respect! And in the process of gaining the respect of everyone in Nether-Netherland she finds her One True Love.
Everything seems to go wrong for Daisy and Trevor. They don’t know what they want. And in that one statement “they don’t know what they want” made this story that much better. Because who in “real life” knows what they want? No one, that’s who! And when do we realize that we want something? Yup you got it, when it’s gone! As in all love stories there are happy and sad parts and Ridley wrote them well. I was right there with all the character’s felling every emotion they felt and those incidents/emotions are what made me want to finish the story that much faster. The need to find out if “love conquers” all was intense!
I recommend this book for those of you 18+ because though there are some silly parts there are also some heated parts where Daisy gets to know Trevor on a whole new level and vise verse. 😉
Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was a charming read a perfect distraction to take you away from our world into that of the fantasy Nether-Netherland. It will bring a smile to your face, have you laughing and thinking that maybe, just maybe true love can exist.
