Callie has always known the Abbotts were different. Witches, though they call themselves Magians. They are her second family. Harrison Abbott has been her best friend since they were children. Tucker Abbott, her life-long crush. And their brother, Tyghe? A magical pain in her backside.
When the Abbotts need her human perspective to solve a mystery, she doesn’t hesitate. Especially since it means getting everything she ever wanted. A chance to be one of them, to have magic, even if it’s only temporary.
Someone is attacking young women at Triune, a ritual that helps Magians find their perfect threesome — the match that will complete their magic and their hearts. Callie expected to be dazzled by her first glimpse into the Magian world, but the bone-melting desire between her and the Abbott brothers isn’t part of the plan.
Nor is the decades-old secret that makes her the target of a killer…
Triune? Magians come from far and wide to seek out
the perfect threesome so they can live kinkily ever after.
Wicked Sexy is great story for an erotic novella, but the romance was seriously lacking.
In the world of Magians, sensuality and passion overwrite attraction and romance. Weirdly, not only romance, but family connections as well. The relationship here blooms between Callie and two brothers, Thyge and Tucker Abbott. Brothers. I understand that Magians are a “sensual species”, and “freer with their bodies than the average human”, but that much? I love a good incest story any day, but here the focus is on polyamorous, fated relationships. And actually, it is an MFM erotic story, and I prefer MMF… But I really don’t want to be judgemental, and actually the fact that Thyge and Tucker are bothers is my lesser problem with the story. The lack of romance is the bigger issue.
I like Callie’s character, I really can identify with her. Her desire is to be one those people whom she considers her true family. But it is weird how her surfaced magic overwrites her decade-long attraction – as she describes it ‘love’ – for Tucker, and is swept away by the overwhelming sexual magnetism of Thyge. But in her words, she had no other choice…
It was an instinctual need, something deep within her crying out for him. How could she do anything other than give in?
She always felt nothing but irritation for Thyge. But now, driven by lust, she suddenly feels love for him. It’s not love, and not romance. There is no development, no intimacy, no tenderness between the two.
Tucker, with whom she has been in love since she was twelve, plays only a second fiddle in this relationship.
Though not fully elaborated, the suspense is great, surprising, and I like the “there are no coincidences” motif.
Magians with different types of magical power are interesting and colorful, with so much potential. The magical pull and bond between the three parties of a triad sounds good, but I can see only lust between them for now. Hope it will change in the following books.
