~REVIEW🖋~
The Quick and Dirty: 1 witch
⚡️ + 6 sexy mages + some serious family skeletons☠️  + hidden identities😎 = DRAMA! And the makings of a great series!

Nova is the heir of the Seattle witch coven and she does her best to maintain the decorum that her father expects of her, even as he continually belittles her. When six mages show up at Nova’s high school, she can’t seem to resist the attraction she feels toward them even though her father has warned her away from mages for as long as she can remember. When secrets about her father are unearthed she thinks that they are the worst of her worries but nothing and no one are as they seem. Most of all herself. Nova will need to discover who she really is and her true power in order to overcome the challenges ahead of her. Lucky for her, she has 6 sexy mages to help her!

The story arc is really interesting especially as we discover who Nova really is,  and I like how the author developed the relationship between Nova and the guys. Her interactions with Everett especially are HOT! Outside of the relationship piece however, the book felt a bit rushed and I found the overall tone of the book changed a few times, like the book had trouble finding its identity. Sometimes the tone was serious and at other times when I felt a situation should have warranted seriousness, the issue was approached in a very light and whimsical way. There were pieces that felt less organic or left me a bit confused (though to be fair, I was easily able to set it aside and continue on the story). Overall small issues in an otherwise good read, and ultimately I’m really excited to find out what happens next and whether Nour and Ramsey are a part of that!

** I was provided an ARC of this book in return for a voluntary and honest review.**

~BLURB~
Stay away from mages.
It was a singular phrase my father had ingrained in me from the time of my birth.

Sorry, dad. I have a feeling that is going to be a f*cking problem.
You have to understand… my life has been bland at best. Everything in my life, every single day, has been scripted, organized, and neat. Calm, cool, and collected. The problem? It wasn’t real.

I wasn’t like the other witches in my father’s coven. I had a chaotic storm growing inside of me and the moment these mages stepped into the picture, it began to escape. My perfect image of my life shattered. Everything seemed to pale in comparison to them. Their magic was exotic and powerful. Their pull on me nearly… well, magical.

But what are these men hiding? Why are they in Seattle at my high school? More importantly, what in the heck do they want with me? I have a feeling nothing will ever be the same after meeting them.
They say it only takes a singular moment to change everything.
No one tells you what to do after!

Join Nova on her 9 book series adventure! Book 1 contains a very small cliff hanger that simply pushes the plot along. This Fantasy slow/medium burn RH contains several dark themes that readers should be aware of: swearing (I know surprising, right?), gore, violence, assault, PTSD, and sexual themes suitable for +18. Additionally, this book does have mature m/m themes that develop over time.
