Publisher's Summary

Kyle Wadsworth arrives at Harvard eager to start his new life as a college student away from the cold and distant great-aunt who has raised him. But he walks into a building that only magical people can see, confusing both himself and the administrators of Veritas, the secret magical university hidden inside Harvard. There he first sees a beautiful girl who seems magical to him in every way. Soon Jess Torralva is tutoring Kyle in the ways of magic, sex, and love. But trouble is afoot at Veritas. Rumors abound that a siren is haunting the library, and when Kyle's best friend is attacked, Kyle is determined to use his newly learned skills in erotic magic to catch the culprit. But which is more important, his quest for justice or his search for true love?

Entertaining and fun

I am not sure why this book is listed as "Adult" & "Romance". Yes there are scenes with details at an NC-17 level but there is a real story here and its really good urban fantasy writing.

Take for instance the author Richard K. Morgan, he writes across sci-fi and fantasy genres but is not considered to be "Romance" Or "Adult" even though the books of his i have read have had scenes that would be NC-17. Both his fantasy series that stats with The Steel Remains, and his sci fi series stating with altered carbon are this way.

So back on this book. I guess the story could be seen as a little derivative but its done well with enough with unique magical ideas to make it really fun to listen to.

I recommend this book to all grown ups who like modern fish-out-of-water fantasy stories don't mind some sexy stuff sprinkled throughout a novel. Narrator is great to. This is a fun super easy listen. just make sure no kids are in ear shot, its not for them.

Well, not what I though.🙁

Ok.... I loved this author books of The prince boy and it's sequel.
But this one is not at all like it .
I tried but this bored me to death. The narration is not one of my favor.
The sex was very tipped.
Not one of my favour, at all.

Good and interesting story.

Enjoyed this story. But i believe that stories involving sex and relationships seem to be more realistic when performed by female readers.
