Though it doesn’t really come as a surprise, Cy is still crushed when he’s dumped. His relationship with Alex had lasted longer than all previous attempts, and started promising when Alex had proclaimed he was perfectly okay with Cy being asexual.
On impulse, convinced no one will ever really see him as worthy relationship material, Cy turns to a book that belonged to his late mother, a grimoire of magic spells that obviously won’t work. It’s a stupid idea, and even if magic was real there’s no way a true love summoning spell would work for him.
This was a good book. This is the type of book that you can read on a nice summer day where the temperature is just perfect, there’s a nice breeze blowing and you’re sitting outside sipping sweet tea.
The book starts out strong and grabs me. I immediately get a feel for Cy. I share his pain and want to share his pizza. When Dig pops into the scene I’m at first unsure about him, but then as the story progresses I grow to like him and trust him as Cy does.
As their road trip unfolds, the story slows down a little. The road trip becomes a little bit boring and I’m wanting more action. I was hoping for something to happen on the road trip, but alas, it doesn’t. The relationship between Cy and Dig grows, though.
When they get to their destination, I feel, the story takes a turn. An unexpected turn that makes me disappointed. The ending was ok, but I was hoping for something more. It felt incomplete. I was wanting them to at least have their first kiss and maybe for Dig to move in with Cy.
I do recommend this book, though. It was entertaining and, as I said in my first paragraph, a perfect book to read on a lazy summer afternoon.
This book starts of so good but about half way through it dragged a little for me and honestly I really had the hardest time finishing this…
Cy is crushed when he is dumped by his boyfriend so he accidently says a spell which summons a man to him. This starts a chain of events that cause Cy and the man he summons to go on a road trip.
There was some very interesting moments while Cy learns more about himself in this book but there was really very little romance at all and I just felt like the second half dragged so much for me that I unfortunately lost interest in these characters.
So I am sad to say this novella was just not for me….
