Summary from the publisher:
And it will all be decided by The Kiss.
At the beginning of the book, I really felt that Eva was going to be one of those TSTL (too stupid to live) heroines. She agrees to take a job on a distant estate where she will have no contact with the outside world for four months. The interviewer questions her on whether there is any family or friends who will miss her or need to contact her while she is gone . . . and she tells her NO! Fortunately, it does work out for the best.
Adam and Eva (I cannot believe that allusion) are in lust with each other from their first meeting. The sex scenes are hot, but pretty vanilla. Adam definitely has a romantic side as well. If anything, Eva is the one being ruled by her hormones.
There is a witch’s curse and true love is the only way to break it. Maybe I should have classified this book as a fairy tale more than fantasy.
Either way, I really enjoyed it. The plot line was unique, the sex was hot, and the hero was built like a god.
What’s not to like?
Overall: 4 stars
Sensuality level: 4

Thank you so much for your lovely review.
Emma, I really enjoyed to book. I thought the plot was quite unique and I am a sucker for a “true love conquers all” ending.
