{Romance Review} Charmed (Nether-Netherland) by Erica Ridley


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.(less)
{Details} ebook, 300 pages. Published December 20th 2012 by Intrepid Reads (first published December 14th 2012) . Source: Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
{Rating} 3/5 - I liked it! 
"Two troublesome occurrences jerked anthropologist Trevor Masterson from an  exhaustion-induced slumber."(page 1, line 1)
Charmed was charming. 
Daisy is determined, brilliant - at science, something that isn't valued in a world filled with magic, tenacious, and unwavering in her goal to earn her wings. I felt for her as she struggled with her desire for acceptance because in her world of Nether-Netherland wings equals acceptance.

Trevor is as determined as Daisy. He's determined to get tenure. He's determined not to let Daisy distract him from his goal even as he finds himself more and more interested, intrigued and then obsessed with the woman who he thinks is crazy.

I didn't really feel the romance between Daisy and Trevor until maybe the last quarter of the book but I was all in by the time when Trevor, having finally figured out how he feels about Daisy, did his arts and crafts project. Adorable. The book felt a little long, I found my mind wandering and wanted to skip ahead, but I did enjoy the story and the characters.
