Ariel Kimber is a 17-year-old girl who has recently discovered she is no ordinary girl. She's a witch, and she's got magic. Her world is turned upside down with this discovery and the recent death of a parent.

 She struggles to learn the way of the world of magic while mourning for her hideous mother and trying to find her place amongst her coven. It's not easy being the only girl with seven guys, and she works hard to get to know them all because they are her coven, whether she likes it or not.

This is the second book in a series. It's reverse harem and slow burn.

I’m not mad, just disappointed.

I wanted to like this series but I don’t foresee myself going forward.
*Pros*
The series had promise and the base idea was a good one, albeit done more than a few times by other authors. Still the premise was good.
Melissa Schwairy is a wonderful narrator and I enjoy listening to her.
*cons*
The MFC Ariel was....awful. She wasn’t believable even accounting for her age. She couldn’t make up her mind and her inner dialogue was just...ugh.
There was soooo much fluff, I had to skip forward a lot and barely missed anything at all.
Some things about her potential harem were just sort of ridiculous, their reactions were a bit unbelievable and more than a little neurotic.
Pretty sure they all need therapy.

Book 2 doesn’t disappoint!

I feel like I totally dropped the ball by never having read or listened to the Ariel Kimber series before! I am in love with these characters, cant get enough of their story. I already am listening to book 3 because I couldn’t help devour these amazing story nuggets haha.

For the story, we have to deal with some pretty heavy stuff that makes you want to laugh, cry, and scream, as well as hug the characters. I can’t imagine what Ariel has to go through, but I love that she is strong, determined, but starting to let others in after being so neglected before by people. I am starting to like more of the guys now that we are getting to see more of their personalities come out. I am really loving Marcus (sorry if I spell anything out wrong, I am listening instead of reading so I am just guessing here haha) and hope he has more spotlights in future books, but only time will tell with me listening to more haha. I think Quinton make me laugh and shake my head the most, he is so quirky and I am not sure what he will do next. I want to like Julian and Tyson, and maybe the twins, verdict is still out. Based on what I have listened to, I am feeling Dash will become a fav soon and Damien has a lot of work to do haha. I wont give anything away, but some things are revealed that I expected, some not so much. I am intrigued to see where Ariel goes with her powers and how the events in Book 2 will domino affect Ariel’s and the guys’ lives.

In terms of the narration, no complaints at all from me. I will say it would be nice if the guys were distinct enough I could tell them apart, but only Quinton is at this point and that is more on the delivery than the accent. I know they all grew up together, but they wouldnt all sound exactly the same. I thought Melissa did a phenomenal job with the emotions in this one, some really heart wrenching moments we had to endure and I FELT the pain, the shock, the anger, etc. I am happy to see I have other audiobooks narrated by Melissa in my Library so I will definitely be checking out those stories next ❤️

Love this Series

I absolutely love this series and was excited when I found it on Audible. I am ok with the narration but the voice tends to be a little grating at times. Everyone is different so it may not bother others.

Love this series!

I absolutely love this world and all it’s stories. I eagerly await each new release and these Audible versions are exactly the same. I love my paperback copies and my digital copies and now having someone to read them to me is just fantastic. Can’t wait for the rest of the series. <flail>

Audio makes Uncle Quinton even more enjoyable

Ariel Kimber has had a rough life that has turned upside down the last few months. Her abusive mother is dead and now her boyfriend is moving closer to his family and wants Ariel to go with him. Her coven naturally wants her to stay with them. She wants to get to know them better and learn about her magic but she's not ready to be with all of them if they even want her.
She's no longer alone but she doesn't know how to be part of the coven yet either.

I was definitely not disappointed with book 2. The storyline continued nicely. Very interesting revelations. We found out more about the Witching World, more about Ariel, Marcus Cole, and several of the guys. We actually got to spend time with the older set of guys in the coven this time, so now we have a better idea who Dash, Julian, and Damien are. We still definitely need more, but with a group this large it's natural that it would take time to get to know all of the guys. We didn't get as much time with Tyson, Addison, and Abel, but what we did get was quality time. And lucky for me, we got plenty of Quinton. I realize that he is a polarizing character, but I love him. He's intense, volatile, his moral compass is questionable, but he's all in. He loves passionately, goes after what he wants with determination, and fiercely protects what he loves. Part dream/part nightmare!
Ariel still has issues, she's sometimes selfish, frustrating or irritating. I would like to see her get out of her own head, stop isolating, whining, and overreacting. When she's delightful, it's easy to see what a great character she could be. I want more of her natural sweetness.

I am absolutely addicted to this series and these characters and listening to it on audio makes it even more enjoyable. Melissa Schwairy does a fantastic job portraying Ariel in all her moods and conveys the different guys nicely giving them all distinctive personalities. I can't wait until they are all on audio.

Such a good series!

I love how the story progresses and we get drama with Chucky and Uncle Quinton. We see how Ariel's relationship with the guys grow at a natural pace and with some it's quicker than with others. This is also what makes the story really good since not all the guys develop a relationship at the same time. This is very well thought out by Mary. I am a fan of this series and I recommend you read or listen it.

Oh...my...gosh!!

There will be spoilers so read at your own risk. 😜

This is the second book and the story picks up right where the first one left off. I really loved having this story without Ariel’s mom in it (Or I guess I should say aunt?! 🤯🤯). There were quite a few twists in this book that I did not see coming.

I enjoyed learning more about dash in this book and hearing more about his past and how much him and Ariel have in common. I am also really loving Quinton more and more as the series is progressing. I hope that he doesn’t let the attack that he feels is his fault eat him up too much inside.

I gave this a four star instead of five because there were a lot of things that I found repetitive and annoying. One example of a few, we were told in the first book that she used pain as a way to combat crying. We don’t need to be told every time she does it why. There are very mundane things that are explained over and over that don’t need to be.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request from audiobooks unleashed, and have voluntarily left this review.

Loving the series!

Another great read in a fantastic series, an emotional rollercoaster and action packed. I couldn't put it down, I was hooked from the beginnning, and can't wait for the next book, Melissa Schwairy does a fantastic job narrating.
