Johan is just looking for a break from his demanding job, and perhaps have a summer fling. When he meets repressed witch Nova, things start to change.

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
This is the second part of the Pagan Pleasures series. It can be read as a standalone, but I'd recommend reading Beltane Bliss first.

This follows Johan, a city lawyer who has been so focussed on work, he has been shunning his connection to Magik.

Solstice Sizzle is the second book in the Pagan Pleasures series by Lilliana Rose. It can easily be read as a standalone.

Johan Rogers is a lawyer suffering from burn-out. He decides to take his first every holiday with the hope of relaxing and spending some time focusing on his magik skills as a medium which have been waining since giving his all to his paying job.

His first port of call is to see his friend Edi (who we met in book one of the series) and it's there that he meets Nova. She supplie
I read and thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this Magik series so jumped at the opportunity to read this sequel. In the first book, Edi has escaped from her family aspirations to set up her own shop, Crystal Sands. In this sequel, Johan Rogers is concerned that his skills as a medium are proving unreliable and that's affecting his role as a lawyer. He needs a break and to recharge his batteries so has travelled to visit Edi's shop. It is there that he encounters Nova, another Magik but she's ...more

Solstice Sizzle

Solstice Sizzle is the second book in this series. It can be read as a stand alone, but I believe you will get more from it by reading them in order. I did read the first one before this one. Nova (we met her in Beltane Bliss) is at Crystal Sands in a session with Edi, when Johan, someone Edi worked with before she moved and opened Crystal Sands. Edi is working with Nova so that Nova can find out what her Magik power is. Johan is needing a break from being a lawyer, and hopefully

3.5/5 stars.

Solstice Sizzle certainly did sizzle when Nova and Johan met. This is Book 2 in this steamy witchy romance series set in Australia. The setting, with the gorgeous beach views and walks along the seaside, certainly appealed to the beach bunny in me.
It’s attraction at first sight for these two and readers are immediately pulled into their drama and passions. As this is a novella not all elements of the story are fully developed. Nova’s backstory includes conflict with her mother, whic

I have not read the first book in the series, but plan to. I don't think it was needed though. I was able to follow along.
Nova lives in a small beach town. She is a Magick but has no idea what her "superpower" is. With the help of Edi, her friend who owns a crystal shop, she is close to discovering it.
Enter Johan. A big city lawyer feeling some burnout. His strong skill as a medium in his line of work has been helpful. After years of being successful, his ability is starting to wain a bit. So h

Solstice Sizzle is the second book in the Pagan Pleasures Series. It's a good read filled with steamy scenes and falling into something really fast.

Johan Rogers is a lawyer trying to get away on vacation. He heads down to Crystal Sands which is Edi's shop in the first one, too find some solace. There he meets Nova on the first day and things start to sizzle.

Nova McGinnis is a woman struggling to find her skill with the Magiks since she's been repressed so long. She can't get a handle on them a

This book was a quick, sexy read that brings Johan, an attorney (and medium), and Nova a newbie to the magiks together through a mutual friend. Johan is struggling with life back home and needs some downtime so he decides to take a trip to visit Edith at her new shop, Crystal Sands. There he meets Nova, who Edith is giving lessons to. There is instant attraction and this begins a whirlwind romance.

This book is a quick read, and maybe it is perhaps because of that some of the characters and idea

Solstice Sizzle is the second book in the Pagan Pleasures series. I did read Beltane Bliss, but I think this could be read as a standalone. However, I think the story is better if read in order.

I loved the descriptive setting. Lilliana Rose’s writing is just beautiful and I felt like I was transported there. I also enjoyed the world building bits. It was interesting to see the magic system.

Nova and Johan get together quickly, and it gets steamy and drama filled quickly too. Like Beltane Bliss, I

This is book 2 in the Pagan Pleasure series. You don't have to read book 1, Beltane Bliss but it does help with knowing who Edi is. Johan is a lawyer and is burnt out from his last case. He is told to take a break, which his parents have been asking him to do also. He leaves and heads to Edi shop, Crystal Sands. There he meets Nova. She makes candles for Edi shop. Right from the start these two have chemistry. This book is a fast read but i loved it. I wish it was a bit longer to tell us what ha ...more

Solstice Sizzle was about a lawyer who was close to burn out and went south for a trip when he run into Nova McGinnis who turns out to be the perfect distraction. The relationship was rushed and seemed more to be a summer romance. The choice between a summer fling, lust or love was the choice the reader had to choose from. The romance was witty but for me it would have been better if there were more bones in the story to pick from and build a fire between the main characters that would rock the ...more

This book is about Johan, an attorney friend of Edi’s and a medium. He’s been struggling at both of those jobs. Nova is another friend of Edi’s who makes candles and soaps to sell in the shop. She is a magik but doesn’t know her skill. Eli is helping her find it. When Johan shows up in Edi’s shop she does some match making and sends Nova and Johan off to have a summer fling. They are flinging alright...within hour of meeting they’re at it. The whole thing felt really rushed to me and things were ...more

This is the second book in the Pagan Pleasures series, and both can be read as stand-alones, but I think you should read book 1 first. After reading the first book I couldn't wait to read this one! Edi's friend Johan comes to visit, needing a vacation to get his mind right. What he gets is so much more when he meets Nova!Such a great read! ...more

This was a cute, magical story centered around Johan and Nova (who we met in book one). The story was a quick read and a very entertaining about truly finding yourself. You also get to see a little bit from Edi (book one in series) and what is going on in her life.

Solstice Sizzle is a light hearted romance. I did not know it was the second in the series. It was a fun book, but I think reading book 1 would have set the stage for book 2. I would recommend reading both!

Johan and Nova have both put their Majik on the back burner of their lives to focus on other things. It comes to a head when they meet through there friend Edi. I enjoyed this book as much as the first one and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Good story

I enjoyed the book but you really should read book one to help. Not required but you get more from the story.

Johan has lost his center being a lawyer and a medium has counteracted and his skills are lacking so he takes a vacation to visit a friend Edi.
Nova makes candles and sells them in Edi’s shop but she is trying to find her skill in the Magiks after suppressing it for so long.
When Johan and Nova connect their souls recognize kindred spirits but someone is stopping their connection.
I really enjoyed this story and how different pagan holidays are celebrated and the Mages contribution to them. Johan

WOW!! SOLSTICE SIZZLE by Lilliana Rose is the Second Book in the Pagan Pleasure series and She DID it Again!! It can be Read as Standalone but you will joy it more if you Read BELTANE BLISS first since Edith appears.

A fun magical romantic read. I really enjoyed the magic twist and how the author mixes it up with a non-magical character and a magical one. This series is great for the lighthearted weekend read.
