Jet is a Nix, the daughter of an Enchantress who went outside her bloodlines. No one helps a Nix, and even though her father is in deep trouble with Dei Lucrii, a Dark Enchanter who paid her family an extraordinary sum to make a passion potion, Jet has no way to fix the powerful spell that killed her mother.

But someone is watching her. A very handsome someone whose face appears in a pewter bowl her mother always kept close by.

Could the boy be the secret to avoiding the curse of the Nix? Or is he the sort of distraction Jet REALLY can’t afford at a time like this?

Passion Potion is a paranormal new adult romance from the author of the romantic comedy hit Heteroflexibility.

“Sometimes we have to make the best of what life brings us.”

Funny, enjoyable and unique. Passion Potion is a light read but not boring, with the right amount of paranormal, fantasy and romance mixed together. Definitely one of its kind.

I practically devoured this book. Its colorful characters, interesting plot and quirky dialogue immediately hooked me in. The pace of the story and the flow of words are smooth and easy. There are no dull moments. Everything is cleverly written.

It wasn’t hard to like the main character, Jet. She’s honest, fierce, snarky, funny, smart and kind. She was a little lost when the truth about her and her family’s identity was revealed but she handled it well. Jet had no idea what to do but she used her resourcefulness to seek help. And she found help. She refused to accept defeat but fought for what is good and just. But she was also willing to sacrifice herself if it comes down to it.

I also loved Caleb. His complicated relationship with Jet was cute and frustrating at first. I liked that even though he was taking a huge risk, he still helped Jet in the ways that he can. Hallow the ferret was funny. Everytime Jet talks to him, it was like she was talking to herself. I laughed out loud at his sarcastic comments and witty remarks that I even think the reason why they’re not going well with each other is that they have the same personality, Jet and Hallow. Likes repel, right?

I liked the twists and revelations of the story. I honestly did not see the main twist coming and it was both a relief and a surprise. It’s like it made everything right and secured a happy ending. But the surprise did not end there. It was brilliant what Jet did with the potion and Rah and Dei Lucrii. Her solution made me a bit uncomfortable and worried but love still proved to be a stronger magic. In the end, Jet had found her true place. 

I am sincerely hoping for more of Jet and Caleb’s story. I can’t get enough of this wonderful world of potions and enchanters. Seriously, this is a must-read if you’re looking for a light and enjoyable book anytime. Superb!

(And hey, there’s a good deal of kissing and making out and MORE towards the end so there’s your additional reasons to go ahead and read this book NOW! *wink*)
