I like the time traveling aspect, other realms, and otherworldly protectors. I also really appreciated that while it is a romance, it is "clean" and no heavy sex scenes

The characters are all well written. All characters come with a good amount of back story so you feel like you can relate to them. The lead characters are especially relatable. I keep guessing up to the end. Good narration.

Every animal can talk to you. You just have to know how to listen. Pepper Neely is better at this than most, especially because she is in charge of pet sitting all the Familiars in her neighborhood. A Familiar is a pet magically linked to a witch or warlock. As a gnome, Pepper is no stranger to spells and sorcery. She also knows that, despite their special name, Familiars aren't all that different from regular animals. They get anxious when separated from their people, so Pepper uses her special gnome powers to calm them down. She watches Cranky, the high-strung ferret, Frank, the laid-back parrot, King Arthur, the elderly tortoise, and many others. Then, something terrible begins happening to the Familiars. Someone is stealing their magic! It not only prevents Pepper from communicating with them, but breaks their magical connection with their people. When King Arthur's magic is stolen, his owner's powers stop working, too. In order to protect the animal's magic, Pepper decides to track down the culprit. With the help of her best friend, Luna, and her brother, Jax, Pepper fights to protect all of the special pets.

This was a very fun children’s audio book. Pepper is a great character. I love that she’s a gnome. It means that she doesn’t have magic herself other than her ability to calm and sometimes communicate with animals.

This book has some BDSM scenes and a lot of discussions about BDSM. It's a dark novel as kidnapping and the sex slave business is a focal point.

The father figure in this story might have done well to remember the old saying, “Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead.” Since he was a world travelling minister with an ego the size of Montana, I don’t think he ever thought anyone would spill his secret. Very interesting plot with good narration.

When a late night accident claims the love of her life, Emma secludes herself in memories of James. In his sandy brown hair and clear blue eyes. In their innocent first kiss and declarations of love. In their plans for a life together after college. But happy dreams can’t rid her of the guilt she carries. She can’t erase her actions the night he died. She can’t erase her reaction at his funeral. And she can’t erase the hollow void that fills her chest and consumes her heart.

It is a great novel. It has love, mystery, friendship, and finding yourself when you have no idea who you are or who you want to be. Life can be tricky in high school and right after.A romance and suspense thriller at the same time.
