Blurb From Goodreads:
Wizards. Shifters. Murderers. Welcome to Woodland Creek, where one family of wizards gives new meaning to organized crime. Evie Scarlett is a shy college student. She also happens to be a wizard. She wanted two things: marry Parker Drake and leave Woodland Creek and her crazy family of wizards behind. But when Hugh Prince, a dangerous crime boss, is mysteriously murdered while awaiting trial for her father’s murder, all eyes turn to the Scarlett family. The arrival of Hugh’s youngest son, Avalon brings a century-old feud to a dangerous climax. From the Old World of magic, this vengeful wizard is more powerful than anyone in her family, and gives Evie’s older brother a choice: die or give Evie to him. When Evie’s plans for escape are broken by familial duty, she must find a way to protect those she loves and win back her freedom. What she finds is an ancient power that she never knew she had…and an unmistakable attraction to the man that threatens to ruin everything good in her life.
This was so not what I was expecting. I swear it didn’t have as many pages as it claims to, it was so easy to get lost in the story and forget about anything else going on. The characters were very interesting, one can shift into a very poisonous spider (shudder, not a huge spider fan), which is actually pretty cool for an assassin. And or course there are wizards but the coolest thing is what Evie can turn into. First time for me reading about that kind of shifter (I won’t tell, you’ll just have to read it lol). Plus, I really liked Evie. Even though her family has tried to shelter her as to what goes on behind the scenes, she isn’t stupid or a spoiled brat. She may not know the details but she knows things are a little shady.
I loved the fact that this was not what I was expecting, I knew there would be a HEA but man, Evie ROCKS!! I really like the Woodland Creek books and can’t wait to read more!
