Massage therapist Joe Wells is in a little over his head with his first job at the posh Magic Touch Sports Spa. He’s also secretly falling for his friendly, sexy coworker, the top-notch masseur Andre Swift. All the clients clamor for Andre, and so far none have taken to Joe.
On the verge of being fired, Joe saves the life of a mysterious kitten belonging to a white witch, who grants him a wish: a magic touch that could save his job and maybe even win him Andre’s love and respect. As Joe’s stock at the spa rises to crazy and barely manageable levels of success, demand for Andre’s services drops off. Will Joe lose Andre to an out-of-control spell? Or worse—Andre’s love might prove to be only a result of the magic, just like Joe’s sudden talent.
Make Someone Happy is a sweet charming romance. Perfect if you like angst-free romance that isn’t exactly logical. It’s not normally my type of thing but I enjoyed it enough that I will check out the author’s other stuff; he definitely has talent.
The story centers around Joe Wells, a massage therapist who is secretly lusting after his co-worker, Andre. His actions are a little on the creepy side (secretly watching him shower) but I pushed that aside. After a bad day Joe is close to being fired when he helps out a white witch who gives him a ‘magic touch’ to help him.
Joe’s life totally turns around both at work and in his personal life. He and Andre get together but Joe wonders if it’s true love or just an effect of the magic.
There’s a nice twist at the end though it does make everything that happened to him rather unbelievable.
Despite the issues I still recommend this story for a quick read.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
