Summary

Growing up in Emerald Lakes, population 682, had been safe and comfortable. Running my own magic shop and making a living off my green witchcraft, I have no complaints. Sure, there’s my ex, who never understood the word "no", but there’s also the lovable and eccentric townspeople who feel more like one huge extended family, and let’s not forget my boy-crazed Gran who keeps us all on our toes. 

...but something has apparently been missing, and the stars take it upon themselves to correct the problem, dropping four sexy men at my door. Well, not literally. They move into the apartment above my shop, so I’m their landlord. Drawn in by these mages who blew into town on a work assignment, a whole different kind of magic starts to grow between us, but my powers are doing things they shouldn’t, and there’s also a pesky prophecy to unravel. 

Strange, unnatural things are brewing in Emerald Lakes, and I can’t ignore the sinking suspicion that something life-changing is headed my way. 

Discovering a whole new world of magic, I can only hope I don’t lose myself in the madness. 

This is a full-length reverse harem romance novel. It contains MMFMM content. It ends on a cliffhanger and contains brief references to domestic violence and other themes that listeners may find triggering.

Great start to a new series!

This book has a little of everything. Great character development and diversity. Multiple POV'S, a bit of mystery and a whole lot of humour. Love it and I am looking forward to listening to the next one!!!!

Absolutely Fantastic!!

I am already a huge fan of the Bordeaux's, but hadn't yet read Britt's books. Well, I just fell in love with them. I will pock this up and read the rest of the currently released books on my kindle, but I will definitely be adding the audio audiobooks to my library as they release too.

Fantastic start to a paranormal RH series

I absolutely loved this story, a fantastic start to what I hope is going to be a brilliant paranormal reverse harem series by Britt Andrews, a new to me author. Every aspect was excellent, the individuality and uniqueness of each of the characters personalities that blended with amazingly strong chemistry, the steamy sexy scenes which incorporated many different kinks and hot m/m action, the suspense, mystery, secrets, sub plots. A gripping fast paced sizzling action packed storyline ending in one hell of a cliffhanger. Cannot wait to find out what happens next. The story and characters especially were brought to life by the narrators, with the dual narration helping portray the events from the multiple POV of the story, it is easy to differenciate the characters from the way each narrator infuses each individual characters personalities into the narrative of their chapter as well as their speech.

Needs a further warning

Not only does this book contain triggering scenes it also is heavy into Dom/sub themes along with a heavy male male scene that is pretty much an entire chapter. I wish the description would have stated something to that effect as well. Hope this helps someone.

Book it amazing, performance so-so

I have read the book previously and absolutely loved it! So I decided to pick up the audio book, especially with the last book coming out in a matter of days.

I was a little disappointed in the narrators. They improved as they went along, but they tended to sound like they were rushing. It just wasn’t a normal speaking pace, so they tended to miss a lot of natural inflections I would have expected from the characters.

Loved the BDSM and MM scenes, so 🔥🔥🔥

I am so glad Britt Andrew's books are coming on audio because I haven't had as much time to read during this pandemic, but I have been devouring audiobooks like candy, that's for sure! I had to pace myself with The Magic of Discovery because I was hooked right away and wanted to stop working and forget my chores to just relax and listen haha. I thought Britt did a phenomenal job with her debut novel, because I couldn't tell it was her first one actually. I thought the story flowed really well, it wasn't too fast-paced but it didn't drag on either. I really got into the various relationships going on in this group, I was trying to figure out which of the guys would be in MM relationships or be open to MM scene with each other or along side Saige. I was NOT disappointed with what transpired and I am already itching for more! Thank goodness book 2 comes out tomorrow on audio, I know what I am going to use with my June credit!!

In terms of the story, I really fell for Saige. She is thrown for a loop with her life kinda falling apart in some regards (no spoilers from me!) but she gets to know these mysterious delicious mancandies and unbeknownst to her, be dragged into a prophecy and a world she didnt know existed. I loved the guys, especially Fischer and Cam. Like Kyoto was a super close runner up, I hope we get more of his shifter side in future books. I loved how adorable Fischer was and that Saige could provide him relief buuuuut holy moly the steam between Guppy and Sloane 🔥🔥🔥. And then what Cam and Kai bring to the table like ummm yes please, sign me up for more and keep it coming!! I laughed and smiled a lot with this audiobook as well, definitely good timing I randomly decided to pick it up, I needed the light in a pretty dark week for me. This has some awesome jokes and awkward moments, I loved how protective the guys were with her, her Gran is hilarious and I loved her, and the fox was entertaining too haha. Amazing job all around, I can't wait to delve into the rest of the series ❤️❤️❤️

In terms of the narration, this is my first time listening to this duo and I was really impressed and will definitely be listening to more from Bridget and Jake! I thought Saige did a fabulous with all her voices and inflections, she made the characters really come to life, especially Saige! I thought Jake did a good job with the male narrators, especially Cam and Fischer (swooooon) but I wasn't a huge fan of his female narration all the time (sometimes it sounded kinda whiny but I know thats not what he was going for). I thought his accent for some of the characters that needed them were good too.

Overall 5/5 stars from me for both the story and narration! Can't wait til June is here so I can listen to book 2😍😍😍

Such a hot book

Well holy hot damn, that book was sexy. This is not a slow burn people and I am so happy about it. This is my burst book by Britt Andrews and I will definitely continue reading everything by her!

These characters are amazing. OMG I love Kai! The dynamic between Sloane & Fischer is amazing. Plus Cam! I just cannot say enough awesome things about these guys. Then add in Sage and her grandmother, this book has the best characters.

Seriously, this book is absolutely on fire! It does end a bit abruptly, and I many have already started the next one before even writing this review. Also, Bridget & Jake Bordeaux do an amazing job with this audiobook. I could listen to Jake all day.

A spicy read!

This is book one in the emerald lakes series and so it does end in a cliffhanger. It was a very steamy read but did have a plot to it. If you like a little magic, men and alot of steam I would give this book a try !
