Review by: Judy Cox on July 20, 2011 :
This was a fun read. It is really not what I read all the time, but I do enjoy and read all genres. This was rather short, I think a novella, I would have liked to have known more on the characters, etc.

Not being my interest of reading, I will not tear it apart. I did think though that the sex came way to early in the story for what the characters were to represent to each other.

Of course, maybe it was supposed to be more erotica than supernatural.

For those that are into the dark magic it will be a good read.

I think this series has great potential, and I look forward to Cash's story. I would also like to read more on the continuation of Grae and Rena's relationship. This one was good, and it kept me interested from start to finish. However, I would have enjoyed more details about the characters' lives before the few days depicted. I hope that more will be revealed as the series continues.

Review by: Angi on June 21, 2011 :
This book definitely borders on erotica - which I am not about to complain about! I liked the premise of the story, but I felt like the author was doing it serious disservice by focusing on the sex when the plot itself promises so much interest.

I will eagerly read the follow-up stories, but I do hope the author fills them in a little better with plot to go WITH the hot sex.

Review by: Siobhan Muir on June 21, 2011 :
This novella didn't start off well for me - the characters got too familiar too quickly for being distrustful enemies. I didn't buy Graelen's willingness to sleep with the pretty innocent Rena (or hers with him, the big, scary, powerful witch) when he's spent his whole life hiding from women because of a terrible curse affecting his family for generations. I would have preferred a little more background and explanation into the characters' concerns before they jumped into bed. I couldn't quite connect with Rena (one moment she's a weak-kneed innocent, then next she's telling Grae off), but Grae was well constructed. However, as the story continued, the writing got tighter and the characters got more interesting. I'd be interested in reading the sequels because Cash seems like a tortured soul who needs saving (always a good thing for a romance writer to deal with), and there are two more brothers. I hope the connection point between the male and female protagonists is more believable.

Graelen Scott is one of four brothers - two sets of twins –all four are witches born under a family curse which forces them to live apart from each other. Rena Gallagher is staff historian at the Museum of Art History in San Diego specializing in tarot history. Rena has been commissioned to study an ancient deck of tarot cards, during her research she discovers a connection to Grae’s family and goes to his house to question him about it. From the moment Grae and Rena meet sparks fly, literally, and they soon discover their attraction to each other is something neither of them can deny. Grae discovers Rena is in possession of a deck of tarot cards that has disappeared from his family’s vault and is distrustful of her explanation as to why she has sought him out. Despite Grae’s misgivings he agrees to help Rena and their search for the truth behind the tarot cards leads them into a journey of dark danger and sensual delight.
From the very first paragraph of this novella you know you are in for a hot ride. Grae is obviously a very strong witch with strong desires and a bit over bearing. You should hate him for these traits but you just can’t help being attracted to him. Rena is a bit mousy at times and at other times she is strong as steal, she is intelligent and, oh by the way, a strong empath. You can’t help but feel sorry for her having to feel all of Grae’s emotions and want to tell her to just run away. There are a few secondary characters introduced, Grae’s brother Cash and eventually Rena’s mysterious client. We don’t get much background on anyone in the story but do find out Cash has anger issues and he’s not very likeable.
This is a short novella, easily read in a couple of hours and with enough of a story line to keep you interested through the whole thing. I have to admit I would have liked a little more background on the family curse and a little more depth of the characters, but it is a short novella and I understand that there just wasn’t enough time to give the reader more. This is semi-erotica but there is a story here, not just one sex scene after another one. The sex scenes are slightly explicit but not so much so that they overshadow the story. If you enjoy a good steamy story with a little bit of a mystery, you will enjoy this novella.

Review by: Book Savvy Babe on June 15, 2011 : (no rating)
Untamed Magick is a quick, fun, sexy read. The concept behind this book, that of 4 brothers living with the legacy of a dark curse that could destroy them, is interesting and provides excellent storyline for this novella. I liked the characters immediately, the mysterious witch, Graelen and the very sweet empath Rena. When their paths collide, sparks fly. Rena gives Graelen a new perspective on the curse he is afflicted with, and gives new hope to Graelen and his brother. The sex is steamy, provocative, and well written.
The book is short, a novella actually. However, the plot is strong, as is the writing and the characters. With an intriguing concept, sexy, dangerous men, and magic mixed in Untamed Magick is a great read. Untamed Magick is book 1 in a series, and after reading it, I am looking forward to the next installment.
I would recommend this novella to fans of paranormal romance and erotic romance.

First in a series that looks set to cover four brothers. Moves quickly. I liked the story premise and would have liked a longer read with more character development. Good though if you are looking for a short read.
