About the Book

 

Look into the world of The Enchanters, where water has a sense of humor, trees scare people, and love… is destiny.

The beautiful Jane is hovering at the edge of content in her life of solitude in the quiet town of Jasmyn Lake, but when her energy sends her on a journey to meet the man she has been dreaming about for months, she cannot resist. Meet sexy artist Elias, who moved to Hazel Grove, California to get away from the rain, his parents, and everything that was taken from him in Hayward, Washington. But he thinks he may be losing his mind when he starts seeing purple glitter in the air, the scent of rosemary is everywhere, and he is hearing a beautiful voice.

But all is not flowers and ease for the newly joined couple. With a woman who prefers night to day and a man with heartache from his past, they must learn how to create their own new world with grace and the occasional water feature. Written with humor and intensity, book one of the three part trilogy will leave you yearning for more and daydreaming shades of purple.

 

My Review

 

My Rating: 4 Stars

 

” ‘Her name is Jane Wildes. She’s not just any Enchanter. She’s one of a kind.’ “

Allie Burke has created a unique, romantic, and mysterious story. It is unknown what brings Jane and Elias together, perhaps fate or the universe or something else set in motion long before they meet. What is certain however, is the undeniable connection they share. This is a difficult task: creating a romance between two people with out much background or build-up. The author pulls it off and gives us a couple that has chemistry and clearly belongs together, no matter what is past or what their futures have in store.

The book is quite fast-paced and I was completely engaged in the story from start to finish. I only wish that the author had filled out the plot with a little more background and detail. I really enjoyed the characters and the world that they inhabit, I just would have liked to know even more about the Enchanters and the mysteries that surround them. The world she does describe is full of vivid colors, raw emotions, and intriguing characters that I can’t help wanting to know more about.

As a whole, I really liked the book. It’s a compelling romance with a hint of sexiness and a supernatural world that holds more to be discovered. I’ve read a snippet of the next book in the series, and it definitely has me wanting more.

“She had already saved his life twice. The first time was when she walked into his world.”

*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
