~ Blurb ~ 

Katherine Rebecca has always done exactly what was expected of her.  Her prim and proper upbringing taught her the importance of family, sacrifice, and social stature.  She has followed in her parent’s footsteps, being trained and groomed daily almost from birth, to take over the family law firm.  It was never a question of IF she wanted to but WHEN she would take the reins of the company.  She worked rigorously toward that predetermined goal her entire life.  She gave up friends, boyfriends, and an exciting social life in order to propel herself through school and college.  Katherine Rebecca strives to please her parents.  More than anything, she basked in their praise and approval.  But now, at 21 years old, she finds herself leading a life that is nothing like the life she imagined for herself.

Becky has always possessed a deep love of magic.  Ever since she was a small child she has been fascinated with magicians, illusions, mystery, and the vague hope that there was some sort of real magic in the world.  But this is a secret no one knows, or at least that’s what she thought.  Until one day Becky finds a mysterious business card in her pocket that leads her to an equally mysterious man.  He opens up a whole new world of possibilities to her, one with a tantalizing proposition that she never thought imaginable.

Could magic actually be real?

~ Review ~ 

Katherine Rebecca has had her whole life planned out for her since the day she was born, and I really felt for her.  She has always put others needs first and become the lady expected of her, whilst hiding her true self from everyone.  As she grows up, she never forgets her love of magic and secretly starts practising her own illusions and working out how others do their tricks, scared to let anyone into that part of her life.  Things start getting strange when she notices someone watching her, then a business card appears in the trouser pocket one day which leads to meeting a stranger who can turn her life upside down.  Can she let go of her fears and travel her own path, or will she follow in her parents footsteps and take over the business? 

I really enjoyed reading this book, and can’t wait to see where things are going to go with the series.  I loved how the author depicted the excitement Katherine Rebecca felt when she experienced her first magic show, and found it really helped set the scene for the book.  Incredibly well written, the story flowed smoothly, and with the descriptive nature I easily found myself completely lost in the story.  Even if you have no interest in magic, I would still recommend reading this book.      

~ Author Bio ~ 

N.L. Greene, who is 1/2 of the author duo Riana Lucas, has decided to venture outside of the Fantasy world that she and her best friend created with Poppy and The Deadly Flowers Series to write a few books on her own. While she loves working with her best friend, writing solo has allowed her to explore interest that had solely been her own. She spends a lot of time reading her favorite authors which range all over the place and in every genre, but spends just as much time with her husband and two daughters, traveling, shopping, and playing video games. Nichole was born in Pennsylvania but grew up in Florida, where she and her high school sweetheart live with their two children.
