Blurb:
Logan Daniels has always led a sheltered life in sleepy, predictable Lancaster, New Hampshire. But when beautiful Serena suddenly appears at school one day, his comfortable existence becomes anything but as he finds himself falling in love with her. There’s something special about Serena Starr. He realizes what it is when he sees her unleash her spells. Soon, a mysterious and foreboding presence settles over his placid home.

Logan and Serena find themselves battling darkness and evil with an ominous mission: it wants Serena and will stop at nothing to have her. Tearing apart Logan’s town, threatening his friends, even causing harm to his family, the demon will spread its doom over every facet of Logan’s once placid life. Logan matures in ways he could never have imagined as he struggles to protect those he loves, including Serena. But he can't do it alone.

Serena hails from a long line of able and powerful women who will aide in the battle and perhaps settle a score of their own. The strength of the coven and Serena's love will be behind him, but ultimately this is Logan’s fight to win. But, will he?


My Review:
I received a copy of Spellbound for an honest review.

Wow to say Spellbound surprised me would be an understatement. After reading the synopsis I was expecting something completely different than what I got and it was a pleasant surprise. Good job Samantha Combs for surprising me.

Logan Daniels fell in love the day he met Serena when he was running late for school. He knew she was special he just didn’t know how much. Serena and her family are witches powerful witches who have lost everything and are being heavily watched by the Counsel.

When Serena reveals her secret and the town comes under attack Logan and Serena begin to put together the pieces of their pasts to find out what to do to stop the Counsel.

I don’t usually go for instalove between characters it made so much sense with the characters and the storyline and it was written so well I didn’t mind. I loved Serena and Logan! Their love for each other was so believable and even when they weren’t with each other they were still great. Actually the entire cast of Spellbound was amazing.

Spellbound’s story was so unique and magical and well written it’s a guaranteed good ride. I couldn’t put this book down and after it finished I was like “okay where is the next book?” Spellbound kept me on my toes the entire time I was reading.

You need to get yourself a copy of this book! Seriously! Magic, love, demons, kidnappings and magical bushes!
