Crystal Cove

I received an advance reading copy of  Crystal Cove by Lisa Kleypas as a Goodreads First Read.

I have to say that this is not necessarily the type of book that I generally gravitate to. It is pretty heavy on the romance with a bit of a cliched male character(dark, brooding and handsome). In this book, Justine(a natural born witch) realizes that someone has cast a spell on her and she is unable to fall in love. As she works to break the spell, the mysterious Jason Black comes into her life. You can see where this is all going, right?

This insomniac's opinion:

This was a great light read and I have to say that I enjoyed it very much. I liked the author's writing style and and the paranormal aspects were subtle, for the most part. There were some pretty steamy sex scenes, so best to avoid this if that is not your thing(or place it at the top of your to-read list if is is, indeed, your thing- you know who you are!).

Worth staying up to read?

Yes, this would be a great light read for the beach or a relaxing weekend.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
