“I love you. And I need you like the blood in my veins. Without you I wouldn’t be me.”
A werewolf and a vampire with an unbreakable bond. A cute witch fleeing her home for a crime she may or may not have committed. A burning desire for something more between them.
Years after becoming a vampire, Logan is finally on track to their goal: Making it big in the music industry with the support of their band and their girlfriend Kay, protector of the local supernatural community. For all its issues, with her by their side, Logan’s life is perfect. But when a new girl comes to town, Nemo, everything abruptly becomes much more complicated and Logan can’t ask Kay for help anymore. Because to do that, they’d have to admit to her that they’ve fallen for someone else…
Nemo, having fled her home for a crime she totally didn’t commit, finds a welcome distraction in Logan’s friendship. But her thoughts quickly become haunted by them and their gorgeous girlfriend…
As Kay realizes that what’s going on between Logan and Nemo exceeds the bounds of friendship, she has to make a choice: Keep her partner all to herself, or encourage them to explore their feelings, and explore her own. To let love make them one, or perhaps tear them apart.
Thank you to the authors for an eARC of this book.
Alright friends, this book was everything. It was soft and warm. It was a cozy sweater and hot chocolate on a cold winter night. It was just adorable. I started it thinking I was getting a low stakes urban fantasy story, and I was not wrong. It was longer than I had anticipated but that wasn’t a downside at all. It was absolutely a slow burn, but I adored watching Logan, Kay, and Nemo interact ang get to know each other. I loved seeing the three of them navigate their feelings for each other and just get into some really cute situations.
This was one of those books that from the very beginning I knew I was going to love it. Sometimes when I’m reading a book I get this weird tingling in my chest. It almost feels like I’m going to cry but I’m not. It’s when a story just hits me so deeply and I just feel so at home in the book that even 20 pages in I know I will love everything about it, or at least it would be very hard for me not to love it. That’s what happened with Moonlight Love and Magic.
I don’t even know what to tell you because it was just so sweet and soft. I loved the way queer identities were normal and completely accepted. I loved the found family vibes and all the ways the friends cared for each other and supported each other.
If you love some fantasy and magical elements, with soft slow burn romance this is the book for you!
