Black Magic by Cherry Adair Blog Tour

Black MagicFrom Goodreads:
Ever since the death of her parents, Sara Temple has rejected her magical gifts. Then, in a moment of extreme danger, she unknowingly sends out a telepathic cry for help—to the one man she is convinced she never wants to see again. 
Jackson Slater thought he was done forever with his ex-fiancée, but when he hears her desperate plea, he teleports halfway around the world to aid her in a situation where magic has gone suddenly, brutally wrong. 
But while Sara and Jack remain convinced they are completely mismatched, the Wizard Council feels otherwise. A dark force is killing some of the world’s most influential wizards, and the ex-lovers have just proved their abilities are mysteriously amplified when they work together. But with the fate of the world at stake, will the violent emotions still simmering between them drive them farther apart . . . or bring them back into each other’s arms?

If you pick up this book and notice that several books also refer this to T-Flac #17 and are worried that you haven't read a single book in this series, don't worry.  This book stands completely on it's own as a fast paced, paranormal romance book. In fact, I had not read any books in this series and did not feel as though I was missing a thing. 

In this book it has a mixture of good and bad points. Our main characters know each other and had already fallen in and out of love with each other. There was a huge falling out and we are quite honestly left hanging to find out what the problem was for half the book. That was quite frustrating and when we do find out, you can then understand how it came between the couple. Also, this book is quite predictable, but even though you know the answers before Sara and Jack, you don't know how it is going to play out. That part in the mystery as well as a lot of the hot scenes keeps you reading this story.

I give this book 4 stars and recommend it to those who are wanting to read something in the paranormal romance genre. In fact, now I'm more curious as to what happens in this series by Cherry Adair.


  1. I can't tell you how many times I've walked by Cherry Adair in the romance aisle. I think I read one of her short anthology and said 'not for me' maybe I need to give this author another go.

  2. I haven't read anything by her as well. But this was enjoyable enough that I will probably read another of hers later. :)

  3. I have read one of her T-Flac books cannot remember which one and it was okay. I have this one on my TBR because loved the premise of the book and figured would give it a try as got it pretty cheap...

    I love PNR and glad you rated it up there as a good enough to at least try out and see for yourself read!

    jackie ^_^

  4. I admit, I may have rated it a bit high b/c of the hero and the adversary were complete visual opposites in the book. I liked that bit of difference. I think her heroine could have been a bit more snarky (I like snark). I still stand by what I said and think this is at least worth a good try. :)

  5. Sounds like a fun read. It is always great when you can pick up a book in a series and not feel like you missed anything. :) Thanks for the review!

  6. Awesome review!=)

    I am hoping to read this one. I met Cherry when she was vacationing in Hawaii. I've read all of her TFLAC psi series which is the PNR books of the series and Loved them!!

    Thx for the review- I hope to read this one some time soon!=)

  7. OMG!!! This book is aMAZING!!! It's my dirty little secret on a cold night when I'm snuggled under piles of blankets and have a cup of hot chocolate.

    This is a very good book. I'm sad it ended.
