Review: Never Again - Michele Bardsley

Welcome to Nevermore, Texas, population 503, where witches and wizards live side by side with humans, and where witch Lucy Rackmore is in trouble. Ever since her former lover snuffed out her magical abilities, everyone in town is looking to settle a score with her family. And Lucy's only hope for survival may be her ex-brother-in-law-whom her sister betrayed and nearly killed.

Plot:
Lucy Rackmore needs help. She is running from her master and lover Bernard Franco and he has cursed her magic. Her family made a deal with a demon long ago and now they are all broke and shunned. So she runs to Gray Calhoun, her sister's ex-husband. But he is not happy to see her considering that her sister killed him and sacrificed him to a demon.

My thoughts:
What a light and easy read. I read it in no time at all, and I do like books like that. Sometimes you just need them.

Lucy was a woman who had made some bad choices. But she didn't know better and she is pretty damaged cos of that creep Bernard. But she was nice and tough. Then there is Gray who is messed up too because of the whole sacrifice thing. Still he slowly becomes himself again and he is one great guy. Now these two together, sure they fell in lust and love pretty fast, but I liked that. It's magic, and the magic wanted them together. Passion is promised in this one.

Then there is the danger. Someone is doing something for some reason in Nevermore. Who, oh I had no idea. That mystery was a good part of the plot since it does include Gray in it.

The world building was nice. Magic and normal people side by side. Houses that rule those with powers, demons that are wicked and all those nice things. Nevermore was a good town, pretty beaten down but I am sure it will get back on its feet after this. The world felt real, and not too much.
Best thing, more to come, wicked older sister has plans, and something is going to happen.

Conclusion:
Did I mention light, yes I did, if you want a passionate fast read with magic and some danger thrown in then this might be the book for you. An interesting book, and I would like to read more about Nevermore.

Reason for reading:
Sounded ok

Cover:
I do like that tattoo, and cape, but I'd like to see more of his head.
