About SOME KIND OF MAGIC:
“An amazing first novel.” —Sydney Landon, New York Times bestselling author
In this sparkling debut novel, Mary Ann Marlowe introduces a hapless scientist who’s swept off her feet by a rock star—but is it love or just a chemical reaction?…
Biochemist Eden Sinclair has no idea that the scent she spritzed on herself before leaving the lab is designed to enhance pheromones. Or that the cute, grungy-looking guy she meets at a gig that evening is Adam Copeland. As in the Adam Copeland international rock god and object of lust for a million women. Make that a million and one. By the time she learns the truth, she s already spent the (amazing, incredible) night in his bed.
Suddenly Eden, who’s more accustomed to being set up on disastrous dates by her mom, is going out with a gorgeous celebrity who loves how down-to-earth and honest she is. But for once, Eden isn’t being honest. She can’t bear to reveal that this overpowering attraction could be nothing more than seduction by science. And the only way to know how Adam truly feels is to ditch the perfume—and risk being ditched in turn
Smart, witty, and sexy, Some Kind of Magic is an irresistibly engaging look at modern relationships why we fall, how we connect, and the courage it takes to trust in something as mysterious and unpredictable as love.
Miss Riki’s Review:
You guys- I loved this book! There’s just something magical that happens when you combine love for music with romance, and this book is a love letter to being a music fan as well as the perfect escape into falling in love.
What jumped out at me right away is how independent and strong-willed Eden is. She is not a helpless heroine, and I loved how from the very beginning she is doing things for herself. the cute moment when she meets Adam for the first time is just one step in the direction for her finding happiness, and I loved how easy it was for the two of them to fall into a romance.
Adam is swoon worthy on his own, and I loved how despite being an International superstar, he thinks only of Eden. From day one he is concerned with her well being and happiness, and every time the two of them have a misunderstanding I just wanted to scream, “but he CARES!”
If you love music and you love romance, you’ll fall head over heels for this adorable novel. The dialogue is witty and fun, and the chemistry between Eden and Adam is undeniable. you” be rooting for Eden to find her Happily Ever After from their first sweet encounter. I highly recommend this book!
