Charmed by Erica Ridley

What’s a girl to do when her father is an angel and her mother a fairy Godmother? Be a tooth fairy of course. Cute premise for a story but, I just found it a bit weird for a wannabe tooth fairy to be getting it on with a hot professor. I guess when you have kids and Disney is a big part of your life, sexing it up just doesn’t feel right.

I wanted to like Charmed and to an extent I did. But as a whole it wasn't a very magical read. The back-story about her mentor secretly plotting to get her father was a bit silly. And truth be told I didn’t really like professor Trevor very much. His character just seemed mean when I think the idea was for him to be uncomfortably in love and adorably irritated. Nope, just seemed mean.

Talking horses, magical tele-porting frogs and pumpkins abounded. Premise cute but it just didn’t do it for me.

From the cover…….
Prepare to be... Charmed!

Daisy le Fey is good at a lot of things. Math, science, accidentally turning people into pumpkins... Unfortunately, she's not good at the one thing hiring managers look for when filling open positions for magical beings: Magic.

When she jeopardizes her apprenticeship by getting involved with sexy mortal Trevor Masterson, it's one disaster too many. In order to stay out of purgatory, she's going to have to ditch the human—and her one chance at true love.
