Review from K. R. Phoenix on:
bookstattoosandtea.wordpress.com/
An interesting collection of intertwining characters.


I feel like this was a real-life read of an established couple reaching a crossroads and a new attraction blossoming onto a second chance at love.  I really enjoyed these couples and feel this was a uniquely written collection.


The style did take a little while for me to sink into but once I was immersed in the lives I needed to know what happened next. I really enjoyed the characters progress and how it was very authentically real and would match real-life scenarios.


I felt for Nate and David and my heart broke as they appeared to break. I did feel like I was coming into this story about halfway through. I felt like I was missing something but once I got past that my heart was opened to the hardships both Nate and David face together and individually.


I loved the intertwining links between all the characters and how the author did this was fantastic. I loved getting to know Joshua and Colin and their connection was hot! I feel these two were the perfect match and I'm so glad they found their ways back to each other even if their separation broke my heart.

All in all, this was a steamy, realistic story with great characters, serious real-life topics and loves that faced hardships and came out on the other side stronger and better for it. A great collection and realistic read!!!

Review from Kirstin on

I couldn't put this lovely book down!!
As the third book in the Revolutionary Heart series, we've already read about Colin and Joshua's fight to be together and then the long road to recovery they had with Colin being shot on the job. It took its toll on their relationship, but now they are back and engaged and ready to take the next step together.

This book is relatively angst free, but is the perfect companion to their love story. From planning the wedding to the vows to the honeymoon, we get to spend time with the happy couple, their friends and Colin's family.
I laughed so many times while reading this story. I felt their tender love in my heart. And yes, my heart squeezed many times while Joshua witnessed Colin's family's bereavement over his sister's death and his aide in helping Colin let her go.

Janice Jarrell successfully creates these totally believable, lovely, romantic characters full of wit, charm, sarcasm and faults and turns them into your best friends. I've fallen in love with Colin and Joshua and this is just the perfect highlight to their story. It's a book you don't want to miss!

From a review by:

crucify--my--love.blogspot.com/
Reviewing "Love's Magic", I can't omit one of the greatest advantages of this novel, and at the same time a very important problem, which really is the central point of the plot. What I'm talking about is naturally the subject of the rape, and most importantly, also of the rape on people from the LGBT+ community, which I personally consider as too often ignored. I am very happy that the author has largely referred to this problem in her book, as well as showed to some extent the consequences of such a terrible act for its victims and their relatives. The fact that in "Love's Magic" the subject of violence, not only the sexual one, occupies such an important place, gives this novel meaning and depth that can't be ignored. The more so, because the author took these problems very seriously, she built around them the plot of this volume and made them an integral part of her characters' creation.

Review from Kimmer's Erotic Book Banter
kimmerseroticbookbanter.com/



Janice Jarrell's Love's Magic reads matter-of-factly, even as deep emotions whiz by. A similar paradox occurs as Jarrell pairs a double-romance with a dreadful theme, that of campus sexual assaults. However, her distance works, creating suspense in the context of charmingly thick-headed couples. 

The first pair consists of David, an older, well-loved, tenured professor, and his lover, Nate, a newly-minted professor. In fact, to get Nate hired, David had to battle homophobic Professor Fox, Nate's Department Chair. David is understandably overprotective of Nate. But this rankles Nate, who is trying to make his own reputation on campus. 

One night, Nate successfully prevents an attempted rape, not knowing the target is Professor Fox's niece. When Nate is stabbed in the rescue, Dr. Fox takes an about-face in their relationship. He asks Nate to stand with him in organizing a campus protest, requesting their university do more to prevent campus assaults. 

This puts David in an awkward position, as his friend, the Chancellor, doesn't want negative publicity for the university. Nate's tenure could be on the line if he participates in the rally. 

Will two relationships, one established, one just blooming, be swept aside by the violence and turmoil of sexual assault, with its sometimes deadly consequences?

The second couple includes Colin, who is campus police. He might be a boisterous, carefree, larger-than-life Irish bachelor in private, but he's a methodical champion of his student victims. Normally, the university's Title IX campus liaison has been a thorn in Colin's side. That person's job is to neutrally assess both sides of an episode, supposed victim and assailant. Then Collin meets the new liaison; quiet, compassionate, steady Joshua, who challenges Colin to acknowledge his own dark past, and the lack of intimacy it has generated.

I certainly learned a great deal about the issue of campus assault from 'Love's Magic'. For example, since universities must treat every student equally, they may have a very nuanced view of accuser and accused. This means their Title IX liaison might perceive an assault differently than campus police, with their tendency to label crimes as perpetrator versus victim. 

Likewise, those directly and indirectly affected by crimes can have conflicting needs. One may want justice and the other security.  And assault, which is especially prevalent for the LGBTQ community, often creates long-term difficulties for unprepared families and communities. Their recovery needs are each unique. 

Rather than read about the effects of this very important topic in a theoretical manner, Jarrell shows readers, as we follow the lives of four men in these two matches. And she permits us a glimpse into the differences between personality types as well.


In so doing, Jarrell examines the core of love, itself. What are over-dependence, independence and interdependence? How can an individual perceive one behavior as kindness while another experiences it as rejection? Why do those undergoing similar traumas recover with very different reactions and styles? 

For all this, the book remains a romance whose couples are often surprised by the strengths and fragility of love. Jarrell creates great tension against which acts of sweetness are starkly satisfying. She takes care to follow her men past where some romances end, so we may understand the lasting implications of crimes and those affected.

Sensitive readers will especially appreciate Love's Magic. Despite its thoroughness and suspense, the novel is never gruesome. Ms. Jarrell earns my respect and gratitude for her willingness to explore a very complex, critical topic in a detailed, yet entertaining fashion, to bring us decent, interesting men, who struggle to develop delightfully realistic relationships. As it is the first in her Revolutionary Hearts series, we can surely expect an intense follow-up!
