Review Tour: Some Kind of Magic by Mary Ann Marlowe

Publisher: Kensington
Publication Date: January 31, 2017

"An amazing first novel." —Sydney Landon, New York Times bestselling author

In this sparkling debut novel, Mary Ann Marlowe introduces a hapless scientist who's swept off her feet by a rock star—but is it love or just a chemical reaction?...

Biochemist Eden Sinclair has no idea that the scent she spritzed on herself before leaving the lab is designed to enhance pheromones. Or that the cute, grungy-looking guy she meets at a gig that evening is Adam Copeland. As in the Adam Copeland international rock god and object of lust for a million women. Make that a million and one. By the time she learns the truth, she s already spent the (amazing, incredible) night in his bed.

Suddenly Eden, who's more accustomed to being set up on disastrous dates by her mom, is going out with a gorgeous celebrity who loves how down-to-earth and honest she is. But for once, Eden isn't being honest. She can't bear to reveal that this overpowering attraction could be nothing more than seduction by science. And the only way to know how Adam truly feels is to ditch the perfume—and risk being ditched in turn

Smart, witty, and sexy, Some Kind of Magic is an irresistibly engaging look at modern relationships why we fall, how we connect, and the courage it takes to trust in something as mysterious and unpredictable as love.

Some Kind of Magic gives new meaning to a chemical reaction delivering us the story of Eden the biochemist and Adam the rockstar.  

This story wasn't your typical rockstar romance which made it all the more fun.  I really liked the characters and how they were written so relatable.  Eden drew my attention from the start, she was such a fun character, smart too.  I really enjoyed the aspect of her life changing all with the spritz of a spray. 

This book was full of wit, steam, and a winning connection between two people who nobody would have put together in a normal situation, proving that love often finds us when, where, and with whom we least expect it.  

I enjoyed Some kind of Magic a lot and found it hard to believe that it was a debut novel.  It was engaging, laugh out loud funny while also totally pulling me into the story and rooting for the characters.  

I look forward to reading more from Mary Ann Marlowe in the future.
