My name is Margaux Asher--and I'm in love.
Crazy, right? Me, the girl who grew up in the lap of luxury and the shadow of cynicism, is now head-over-heels for an apple farmer's son who rocks my world and steals my breath. He's seen the woman beneath the princess, and loves me--for me. Trouble is...he wants all of me. But how can I commit that to him if I don't know what "me" is?
There are pieces missing--and not just mine. Until Michael opens up and shares all of himself, we're a great opening explosion, but not a lasting magic tale.
Don't look at the man behind the curtain...
My name is Michael Pearson--and I'm in love.
Margaux is the fire of my dreams, the fulfillment of my fantasies, and the woman who's asked the impossible. When your past has been hell, how is it possible to walk through it again? But fighting it isn't an option--especially when the ghosts rise up and battle back.
Especially when fate issues an ultimatum: battle back, or lose her forever.
Can I do it? Is love enough to change a person's soul, or will our magic become a forgotten moment for us both?
Angel Payne and Victoria Blue are back with another scorching HOT, emotional romance that will have your head in the clouds and your heart in a vise. VERY well done!
This story was smoking hot right from the start. Michael Pearson shows his dominant side in more ways than one, and I LOVED it! Margaux and Michael’s chemistry is just on point and oh so heady. Together they took the good ole’ school girl fantasy to another level. This was one of the best scenes in my mind because this is where Margaux realizes what Michael can really do for her. He can take her to another place and make her forget her worries. He can bring her a pleasurable pain that she never knew she craved. This was a great turning point for them and was a small window in to what was to come in this love story.
Margaux Asher was not my favorite heroine going in to this book, but man did she redeem herself in NO MAGIC MOMENT. She won me over 100% in this installment of the series and she just surprised the hell out of me. I even realized the Margaux and I, are not all that different. I was able to relate to her on a couple of levels in this book. I mean sure she is ridiculously wealthy (and I’m not). And sure she has the gorgeous and sexy Michael Pearson on her arm (and I DO NOT). But she showed us great strength and tenacity in this book, and I was incredibly proud her the entire way through. The fact that it is so hard for her to shed tears, made my heart ache. The strength she shows for herself and for her relationship with Michael was a beautiful thing. She does NOT give up. She WILL NOT give up on herself or their relationship.
Michael Pearson. GOD! I just melt every single time ‘sugar’ comes out of his insanely sexy mouth. I melt. I shudder. My heart skips a beat. Michael was a FANTASTIC male lead. We get to experience the yummy dominant side, as well as, the vulnerable side of Mr. Pearson. He put his heart in Margaux’s hands and he trusts her with everything he has that she will take good care of it. Michael’s past is the main topic on display in this book and I was so happy to have it revealed. Margaux shared her past with him, it was only fair to reveal his. The problem is, is that his past puts everyone he loves in danger and Margaux holds that top spot right now. When he decides that the only way to keep her safe is to let her go, well, let’s just say, maybe he doesn’t know Margaux as well as he thinks he does.
Their relationship, their love, their happily ever after is put to the test in a big way in the latest installment of the Secrets of Stone series. We get TONS of make up sex, a deeper level of emotion, and a dash of suspense and I enjoyed ever minute of it. Don’t worry ladies, you will get your Killian Stone fix as well. The easy relationship he has with his sister, the deep love he shares with his Claire, and the heartbreaking confession he has yet to share with anyone, comes to light in this fabulous read.
Angel Payne and Victoria Blue did it right with NO MAGIC MOMENT. I’m looking forward to more of this series and more of these wonderful and complex characters.
