Olivia Kiskey is in love with Tobias the cook who works with her in the Waffle House she's been working in since she was a teenager. When her feelings are not reciprocated she decides its time to make decisions so she buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends.
While closing up late one night Davina comes in to the Waffle House shows Olivia that there is more to her life than she ever dreamed. As Liv's latent magical powers come to the surface, she discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it's cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else's magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, with those she loves at her side . . . and in the cross fire. Can the most important things in life-friendship, love, magic, and waffles-get her through the worst that the universe can throw at her?
If you want something a little different that is not all hot and heavy sex but you don’t notice there is no kissing or sex scene until late because it’s a really good story then this is for you. I loved the characters and dynamics of Olivia’s and Tobias’ relationship and how everyone fitted together into the story seamlessly . It was refreshing to read a book that was a described as a romance but wasn’t based heavily on the romance itself.
I received this book via Net Galley
