My Thoughts:

Rating: 4 Stars

I got this book from the publisher, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.

Firstly I would like to thank the publisher and the author for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this book.

I loved the concept very much and the twist of modern world with ancient magic and fantasy world was humorous and exciting as well.

Being in a high school it's obvious that every girl will have a secret crush but when you and your best friend develop the secret crush for the same boy? Well that calls for grave danger. The same thing happens with Evie. Will she able to save Jordon from the love spell that her BFF is planning on using on him to make him fall for her? What will happen next?

The read was really exciting and interesting and I enjoyed the high school vibe that I got from reading this story. Cat fights and fighting over a single boy, well it's been years now and I really miss this very much but reading this fantastic read made me relive those moments well excluding the magic potion and spells part. 

Definitely a great read that can be enjoyed by all and I hope that you guys will love it too.

Synopsis:

What if the one person who saw through your lies and loved you, harbored a secret that could cost you everything?


Goth outcast, Salem Miller, believes her love spell failed until Aidan Cooper arrives at Jefferson High. When he chooses her over the popular girls, Salem knows magic brought him. But can she summon enough wizardry to save her sister? Salem fears Amy’s next suicide attempt will succeed. Magic brought Aidan. Maybe it can cure Amy. Salem’s last hope lies hidden within a damaged grimoire, nearly destroyed by a wrongful love spell. Was her rightful love spell enough to restore it?

Newest Jefferson High transplant, Aidan Cooper, doesn't expect to be attracted to a goth. Then he realizes Salem is throwing a glamour—pretending to be something she’s not. Guess it takes one to know one, since his whole life has been a lie. But if his kidnappers discover he's broken their No Attachments rule, he'll never see Salem again. Worse, he’s terrified they’ll harm her when they discover she possesses the ancient grimoire. To protect Salem, Aidan must destroy the grimoire, and escape his captors.

While Salem races to unlock the Get Well Spell, Aidan scrambles to overcome his past. With their star-crossed paths at odds, will time run out for both of them?

I really loved this story. It's so simple and cute yet so intriguing!!! The storyline is fabulous and the plotting is brilliant, I didn't feel bored for a moment and high school life is something that I love to read about and experience the different emotional highs that I think I didn't have felt before.

When newly transferred boy Aidan comes in Salem's life, well it changes everything for both of them. Salem struggles to get her sister well and Aidan is trying to escape his captors and keep Salem hidden and safe from their eyes. Both are keeping secrets from each other but they have true feeling at heart. will they be able to survive after all?

I loved this story very much and the emotions are portrayed so genuinely that Aidan and Salem would feel like your high school mates rather than a fictional character. The chemistry between the two is awesome and Salem's love for her sister is priceless. 

The smooth flow of the events held my interest till the end and the bumpy ride of thrills and chills made this read captivating for me. The story will definitely win hearts and I would definitely recommend it to others as well. Hope that you'll love it.
