I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This book tells the story of Jet, who has just flunked out of college–in time to receive a call from her father telling her she needs to return home. On the drive back with her dad, he tells her her mother was an enchantress and had agreed to make a forbidden love potion for a dark enchanter. Jet then searches through her mother’s lair looking for the recipe knowing that if she doesn’t find it, they will lose everything. On the journey to making the potion, she finds love, friends and a magical world she never knew existed.
Hmm… I enjoyed this story and the background information you receive as you read further into it. The relationships and interactions between the characters was rather entertaining and I really liked the whole “match” thing. If I’m being honest, I mean I like Caleb and Jet as a “match” or maybe just the reaction they have when they meet their perfect “match”.
The world building was very fantasy-esque with portals in bowls and fairies, edible mushrooms and talking animals but I enjoyed it.
This is the first New Adult book I’ve read that was also of a different genre, in this’ case Paranormal/Fantasy. As a lover of both, I had to read this to see what it was like and I did enjoy it. Some of it seemed a little slow and other bits a little rushed but overall it was a good enjoyable read.
