As the youngest Braxton Sister, she’s always been two steps behind her siblings. This Time, she’s taking matters into her own hands. As long as the Elemental Board doesn’t find out. But when she crosses paths with the hot Durant twins, she’s not too ready to face flames for them just yet since the handsome duo made high school a living heaven and hell. She longed for them from afar, but they were way out of her league. Or so she thought.
Twin warlocks Ryan and Royce Durant have always been inseparable. That’s why they knew if they ever formed a Perfect Triad Bond, they would create one together when their witch match showed up. When they run into Carmen, they’re reminded of their high school crush on her. To avoid a rivalry,they left the sexy witch alone. After all, her protective sisters were always nearby. That didn’t keep them from feeling like Carmen, with a scorching personality to go with her voluptuous curves, was witch enough for both of them. Now that they’ve got her all to themselves, they’re ready to claim her as their own.
However, danger lurks around the corner for Carmen when she runs across something meant to be hidden. Her hopes of making the last night of the Firewick Festival one to remember turns into just that.
But will Carmen live to enjoy the nights to come with her own warlocks? Can this pair of Alpha Warlock twins convince thesexy fire vixen she belongs with them forever and save her in time to enjoy it?
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
I received this ARC from the author because I signed up for her newsletter after reading the first in this series, The Alphe Warlocks’ Claim. I was so taken in by the world Skye had created that I immediately plunged into this novel and was hooked all over again. I didn’t realize that I had skipped over the second in the series, though, and absolutely need to go buy it.
The negative about this novel is that I felt like the writing could use some polishing. It’s not that there are a lot of grammatical errors. In fact, the only one I can think of offhand is that the author uses the wrong sister’s name in one place. It is hard to explain, however. When you read it, it gives off the feel of being a novella. Everything moves quickly with enough detail to keep the reader in the loop, but that’s it. When I kept reading and realized that this isn’t as of a short story as I initially thought, I felt like there should have been more. More what, I am not sure. More descriptions? More detail? It’s hard to put my finger on it.
Regardless, I still loved the story. Skye’s magically community and ideas are among my favorite in the literary world. Not too mention, I really like her characters. The Brixton sisters are fierce and funny and I found I could relate to them since I have a similar relationship with my own sister. I also appreciated that the one angsty character quickly got over his suffering and moved on. It was refreshing to not having to keep revisiting his anguish and that he was able to resolve it without putting the reader through too much torment.
I also love how the men treat their women in this series. While they want to protect them and do what is best for them, they are not controlling nor do they mistreat their women under the ideal that “they know what is best for her.” It is legitimately a loving partnership between all three.
I feel the synopsis make this story sound steamier than it is. While Skye knows how to write an erotic scene, they are few and far between. And I actually didn’t mind one bit. Skye’s Alpha Warlocks is one of the few series that I started for the erotica but stayed for the story. In fact, in some places, I actually skipped over the erotic scenes because I wanted to know what happened in the story.
If you are looking for a paranormal romance where alpha males find their alpha females, and love them with everything they are, then I highly recommend this series.
