Recommended for: PNR fans,

After a long arduous journey of reading this book, I finally finished it. It was no joke reading a novel while going through life’s tough patches and going around being busy all the time. Well, anyway, onto the book!

Spellbound was probably my first PNR novel which is not a series! At first, as the story was still developing and it’s not until I’m halfway until there’s a progress in the story, I thought this was going to be a series! Because there is no way their problem will be solved in this book! Ha! boy, how wrong I was! I could describe Spellbound as being cheesy, a bit common, but it also was a bit literal in every sense of that word. Literal as in the title made it clear what the story is about. But, that’s what I like about it, it was CLEAR, DIRECT TO THE POINT, NO OTHER UNNECESSARY TWISTS authors put in the book just to make it longer and stretch the story into a series. (unlike some other book i know, a.k.a. Fallen by LK lol). The characters were actually quite good, even if it was cliched. Brendan was travesty. Emma (I like her name by the way), was feisty and spunky. Other supporting characters were brilliantly friendly. There were the necessary bitchy blondes trying to ruin everything. Two maniac fools were a bit too crowded in one novel, but Cara Lynn Shultz was able to manage it. The expected lesson of the story was there. it was SIMPLE. But that’s what made me like this book. everything is really just SIMPLE, in life, we just make it complicated, and we just let our pride get in us to believe that we have to like undergo somekind of amazon amazing race to get the prize, but it’s not all that, and this book proved that. In the lesson’s simplicity, act of SELFLESSNESS must be replaced over the act of SELFISHNESS. At least, it was till about LOVE but the truest sense of love is SELFLESSNESS, and it was shown here. YEY! Another one, the writing was also good. Not that deep sonnet Shakespearean Medieval language way, but deep and poetic enough to be understood and liked and enjoyed.

People, people! Be SPELLBOUND by this novel of Cara Lynn Shultz. You will not regret reading it, lest, you’ll enjoy it. Something NEW from something old. :)
