Today is my stop on the blog tour for Solstice Sizzle (Pagan Pleasures Bk 2). Check out my review and let me know what you think.
Johan Rogers is a sharpshooting family lawyer who is close to burn out. This is affecting his ability with the Magiks and his once reliable skill as a medium. On a whim, he’s come south to Edi’s shop, Crystal Sands, for a break over the summer solstice. He’s looking for fun, nothing serious, and definitely no commitment.
That’s how things start with the stunning Nova. But then a side of him he’s repressed to be a lawyer begins to emerge. Can he get a handle on his emotions, or will Nova help him to realize his full potential with the Magiks?
Nova McGinnis is struggling to find her unique skill with the Magiks. She’s been repressed too long, and despite Edi’s help, her ability is erratic at best. It’s been nearly a month of trying and she’s made minimal progress. Frustrated, she sees Johan as the perfect distraction.
It was meant to be just a summer love affair, but things are developing into something more lasting. Will a hot love affair prevent Nova from discovering her Magik ability, or help her?
Solstice Sizzle is the second book in the Pagan Pleasures series. I did read Beltane Bliss, but I think this could be read as a standalone. However, I think the story is better if read in order.
I loved the descriptive setting. Lilliana Rose’s writing is just beautiful and I felt like I was transported there. I also enjoyed the world building bits. It was interesting to see the magic system.
Nova and Johan get together quickly, and it gets steamy and drama filled quickly too. Like Beltane Bliss, I think this story would have benefitted from being a bit longer. Expending on the characters and story would have made the difference.
Still this was enjoyable and I recommend it!
