When a chance encounter after a night of celebration brings Davis Anderson unexpectedly crashing into Jamie Greene’s life, Davis knows the universe has delivered the man of his dreams. Unfortunately, love is the last thing Jamie is looking for. The attraction between the two men is nothing short of magical, but for Jamie, the timing couldn’t be worse. Consumed by grief over the death of his mother, Jamie pushes Davis away, for Davis’s own good—or so Jamie insists. For Davis, walking away from Jamie isn’t an option. He must find a way to soothe Jamie’s pain and earn his trust. Even as misunderstandings threaten their tentative connection, they’re determined to hold on to each other—and hope the magic between them will be enough.
So, I read Davis’s Magic by Lisa Clarke as part of my pre-GRL flurry, but I never managed to review it. I wrote a few notes, but that wasn’t enough to bring the story back to the forefront of my mind. I decided it was best to re-read Davis’s Magic prior to review. It was a quick read both times.
My notes from my first reading are brief. Sweet, low angst and insta-love. Though I still see those notes as true, I found there was more to the story on my second reading. As I was reading, I remembered bits and pieces from my first reading, but I was able to appreciate it more the second time, I think.
Jamie Green is having a bad day. He has just let go of the final piece of his mother’s life, and he is grieving… but his day is about to get better and worse all at the hands of one Davis Anderson. Davis is riding the high of the birth of his nephew and the low of sheer exhaustion. When their worlds collide, quite literally, neither will ever be the same.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
