This was my first foray into polyamory, and it surprised me how much I enjoyed this story. Ginelle and Seth have a history, so seeing the old attraction flare back to life at their reunion borne of a calamitous situation wasn’t far fetched. The one M/M scene was particularly hot. It could have easily slipped into the dirty or porn category, but the author managed to get emotional intimacy across so it felt like love and affection between the two men. That also extended to encompass all the participants in the other scenes.
If there was anything I didn’t understand, it was:
1) the significance of Ginelle being a witch, if she even really was one. It didn’t play a role in the rest of the story. I think her mishap that was the catalyst for the story could have been anything else that didn’t involve any hocus pocus.
2) I was quite surprised by the amount of grammar mistakes (tenses) that made it past the editor. For an Evernight book that is rather unusual. I contacted the author, and she was very gracious and apologetic about the whole thing.
If you love Evernight’s Romance on the Go line, I wouldn’t let the mistakes stop you from picking up this book. Angelina knows how to write a sexy story with a splash of humor. I will definitely read some of her other books thanks to this.
