After breaking a centuries-old romantic curse, Emma Connor is (almost) glad to get back to normal problems. Although…it's not easy dealing with the jealous cliques and gossip that rule her exclusive Upper East Side prep, even for a seventeen-year-old newbie witch. Having the most-wanted boy in school as her eternal soul mate sure helps ease the pain—especially since wealthy, rocker-hot Brendan Salinger is very good at staying irresistibly close….

But something dark and hungry is using Emma's and Brendan's deepest fears to reveal damaging secrets and destroy their trust in each other. And Emma's crash course in ├╝berspells may not be enough to keep them safe…or to stop an inhuman force bent on making their unsuspected power its own.

My Thoughts

Emma’s and Brendan’s relationship is at the center of this book.  I love the fact that the author does not pretend that even though they are destined to be together that everything will be peachy.  I enjoy the moments of turbulence due to Brendan’s past and the moments of his insecurities.  The best thing about this book though is Emma’s discoveries of being a neophyte witch.    The spells that she has to use to protect what is hers are interesting.  The confidence that Emma has to have in herself and in the whole soul mate destiny makes her a wonderful heroine.  I also love that her relationships with her friends continue to grow. 

Other Characters


Ashley- Emma’s cousin, a little to peppy.  Almost like she has had too much caffeine although she is loyal to her cousin.
Cisco- friend, strong supporter of Emma and Brendan’s relationship. 
Angelique- Emma’s best friend, teacher of all things witchy and empathic.  Adore her opinions on Brendan~ how they change and go. 
Kristin- evil little rich gal who wants Brendan.  Can you tell I like to hate her?
Megan- You just have to read about her.  SMH
