My Review:

Cursed in Love is a fast-paced and spicy romance with an interesting cast of characters and an intriguing plot. The story follows Nora and her best friend Levi, who enter a magical competition to gain access to a magical library. Their quest takes them on an adventure to Egypt where they connect with Nora’s vampire ex. The trio ends up on a dangerous and potentially deadly quest, and they meet an enigmatic Icelandic shifter that I need to know more about!

Nora and Levi have been crushing on each other for a while, and their chemistry is off the charts! Nora is a strong and determined woman, and she’s the glue that holds the rest of them together. Levi, Nora’s best friend-turned-lover, is such a sweetheart, and he’s incredibly devoted to Nora. Raphael, Nora’s vampire ex, is charming and seductive, and Isak is super mysterious. They all have dynamic personalities, and I’m eager to learn more about them, individually and as a romantic unit.

If you like a steamy, reverse harem, paranormal romance, you should definitely check this one out because it is SPICY!!! But I liked that it wasn’t just steam. There are deep friendships and lasting connections that are built upon. The plot is interesting too, and I was really intrigued by the magical world and the people who inhabit it. I’ll be curious to see how the mystery unfolds as the series progresses, but I’m more interested in seeing what happens between Nora and her harem!

About the Author:

Zoe Ashwood writes sexy paranormal romance for women who believe in magic and true love. While she’s always been a reader, Zoe’s writing used to be limited to diary scribbles and bad (really bad) teenage poetry. Then she participated in NaNoWriMo 2015 and never looked back. Some 700,000 words later, she’s still in love with the art of making up stories – and making her characters fall in love.
