How many of us have ever behaved in a way that nobody but us seemed to understand? Or neglected to express how we really felt in order to hide our vulnerability?
That constant internal struggle is one the author seems to be completely in touch with. She paints it in a light that both breaks our hearts and lifts our spirits. There is also a bit of humor (I’m referring to the rather desperate way Colin tracks Joshua down when he leaves without any forwarding address) and some serious attention given to rape on campus. The read was entertaining and enlightening. Five stars.
"Maybe some men are worth a broken heart, he mused. Maybe some men are worth it."
💖 A beautiful quote in this book for Joshua's thoughts. I loved the Irish scenes with Joshua and Colin. Both stories interweaving and brilliantly written. You feel different things as each couple scenes read while they go through life, love and dramas. I could write in more detail but that would spoilers. I high recommend this book as you'd get not one romance but two. I loved that with this one.
Professors David and Nate both worked at the same Uni. Nate was a history documentary producer for his boss Lance which was how he'd met David a year ago....
Late at night Nate goes to the rescue of a girl being attacked and gets injured himself.
Sergeant Colin with campus police was investigating the attack and 6 other cases. The new Title IX coordinator, Joshua would also be working on the case too. Sparks fly and chemistry is there but who'd be the first ta give in to what they'd feel. Definitely a rough trip a head for them but makes a great read.
The book starts with David and Nate, who seem absolutely perfect for each other until the aftermath of a traumatic event puts a wedge between them. Then we have Colin and Joshua, who are quite different in personality but have an undeniable chemistry. Each romance is engaging in its own right and the book moves back and forth between the couples with them sometimes interacting as the four men become friends.
I will say that in most cases, the two stories running along at the same time would be a negative for me as it tends to take away from one or the other, but the author does a wonderful job of making each character distinct and with the writing style, it just works for this book. The only drawback, for me, is around chapter three, we start to get both couples in the same chapter with scene breaks to signal a change. At times that seemed a bit abrupt and I did feel like a new chapter for those changes could've been more effective. Those changes from one couple the next were minor, in my opinion, and the story itself is good enough that it didn't diminish my interest or attention.
The connecting storyline of on-campus assault is a serious one and Ms Jarrell does a wonderful job of bringing attention to it with fiction without going over the top or detracting from its importance. Each of these terrific characters is affected by assault in one way or another, and it's interesting to see how each one deals with it.
All in all, Love's Magic is a sweet romance with a bit of sexy combined with a story about standing up for what's right and forcing change in the system. It's a thoroughly compelling read from start to finish and I can't wait to see more of Colin and Joshua in the next Revolutionary Heart book.
Colin is a campus policeman good at his job. Joshua works to assure that sexual harassment or assault cases are not ignored. Colin is immediately attracted to Joshua. They can't ignore the the feelings between them even though Colin makes sure Joshua knows he not a “relationship” kind of guy. Joshua dives in anyway, knows he's going to get hurt. When they disagree on how a frat boy should be treated after a rape, Joshua knows it not working for him anymore. He quits his job and leaves town.
Each man in each relationship will have to decide if their differences will separate them or bind them together.
I liked the parallels in this story. When I read the blurb I wondered how two different story lines would work. Distinct differences in each couple blended with the similarities between them. I think it was well done.
