“This was an okay book for what it was - a somewhat formulaic and predictable fluffy paranormal romace story.
Queisha Saint Denis is a quirky, creative agoraphobic who lives alone in a large house on an island where she is solitary, but able to manage her fear of the world. Until the twin girls she carried as a surrogate for a rich couple come back to her because of the parents unexpected death.
Queisa's not sure she's able to be the best parent to the girls, even though she loves them. Enter guardian angel Chance Godricson - hot and has been in love with Queisha from afar for years. He's determined to help her - and of course they end up in bed plenty!
The whole story was really predictable and it didn't really grab me. It was sweet and had the requisite happy ending, but it was all just a bit too pat for me.”
“I picked this up thinking "ooh angel romance" but it fell flat in personality and writing prowess. Skip it and go read the Guild Hunter's series by Singh”Linsey wrote this review Thursday, December 22, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“This is the 2nd book in Annette Blair's "Works Like Magic Series".
Vivica Quinlan runs the Works like Magic Employment Agency, and helps some unique individuals acclimate to the the town in Salem, MA. She can sense when magical creatures come across dimensions and is the one to find them and help them with necessatry papers and jobs. She's already helped some men who had originaaly been Romans centuries earlier that an evil sorcoress sent them to the alternate dimension as dragons. A good sorcoress isn't as strong, but is able to try and send one at a time back through the dimension to earth... but they must find their 'heart mate' and help them in that person's quest in order to stay.
This time, Vivica chances upon Chance Godrickson at the back door of her friend Queshia's home. Chance is actually Queshia's Guardian Angel, and he has been in love with her the day he sacrificed his life for hers almost 10 years earlier. Queisha is an agoraphobe and won't leave her home, though some big changes are coming her way through the arrival iof twin girls she had been a surrogate mother for 8 years before to help a childless couple, who have just been in a mountain climbing accident.
Chance's fellow Guardian Angel Angus had knocked him off the Cloud up in Heaven to go down and help her through this trial... and to help him with his infatuation of Queshia. Though his wings are hidden in sacks on his back, there's some interesting things that happen with his wings, and one incident in particular had me laughing out loud (as well as Angus)!
This is a very sweet love story that involves a young woman's challenge to try and work through her psychological trauma to help the twins who she had fallen in love with as they were growing in her belly. I fell in love with the twins as Queshia and Angus were helping to take care of the girls who hadn't yet learned exactly what happened to their parents.
Some cameos from Ms Blair's earlier books make appearances, which is a special treat if you've already read The Kitchen Witch; My Favorite Witch; The Scott, the Witch and the Wardrobe; and the Triplate Witch Sisters' trilogy.
Sneak preview of the next book will bring back another of the dragon warriors. Yay! I highly recommend this author's books to anyone who likes a little magic twist and humor with their romance!”

“I have mixed feelings about this book. I enjoy reading Annette Blair immensely for her cute romance story lines with a paranormal flair. That being said, I felt this book was way over the top and completely unrealistic. I understand the need for a happy ending in every romance novel but this ending was too much even for me. It is a fun book for the most part but I found it very unsettling in certain times, since I have lost loved ones in my past, and tend not to read disheartening books. As I said, mixed feelings. I'm fairly certain you will enjoy this story provided you have not lost a very close loved one any time soon.”josieD wrote this review Sunday, September 12, 2010.

“If I could give reviews of 1/2 stars I would rate it 2.5. The dialouge is really cheesy, cute story but Quiesha's (really? you name the heroine QUIESHA!?) kiddy language made me cringe... gah! I usually like Annette Blair. So if you can handle overly fuzzy than by all means you should read it. ”Missy C wrote this review Monday, August 30, 2010.
