When Channie Belks moves from her home in the Ozark mountains to a suburban Colorado high school, she tries to hide the fact she's a mage. It might have worked until her parents slapped a chastity curse on her for flirting with "dirty-minded, non-magical, city-boys." She can't even walk by a hot guy without zapping him.
There's a way to break the curse; but one mistake could kill her. It's not worth the risk. Until she meets Josh…a BMX champion with a dazzling smile, washboard abs and the bluest eyes she’s ever seen.
Suddenly, the threat of death isn't such a deal-breaker.

I have already read the entire Channie Series and loved it. I was excited to see that the audiobook had become available. I love that I can revisit the story more readily now that it is in audio. It is so much easier to steal some listening time than some reading time.
I love all the scenes with the trips. The most memorable to me is when the trips were on the roof and Channie pulled them inside and Josh's astonishment at there being more than one of them.
It took me a little while to warm up to her, but that is often the case when I hear new readers. The best thing about her performance, in my opinion, is the accent she uses for Channie. I didn't get that from just reading the book. Though I knew that Channie did have such an accent, my inner voice just refused to use it.
A bookworm since a child. Love audible books.
This story is obsessed about lust, sex, and orgasms. It might be better if the plot and characters were better developed.
No, because not all books in this genre are like this one.
She did an adequate job of reading the story.
I would have changed the ending a bit.
This book as adult themes even though it is geared to teenagers.
Yes , Channie's accent is what makes the book but Elizabeth Phillips did a wonderful job with all of the characters in this book. I hope they will us Elizabeth on the rest of the Channie series.
Yes there where a lot of moments that moved me, the first was when the family dynamics changed between Channie and her family. She stopped letting her parents run her life after they changed her name, But my favorite one was the KISS.
If you love a story that grabs you and you can't put it down from the vary first page then this book is for you.
