Jev was looking for an adventure, however she wanted the usual variety of stomping out nasty fae in the city as an enforcer of the Philly Coven. Instead, handsome as sin Liam O’Reilly shows up on her doorstep dropping news of the worst organization of fae they’d dealt with on the rise again. Except, he’s a traitor, an asshole, and the absolute last person she wants to work with.
However, the longer they work together, the more the fire between them burns, turning from rage and irritation into something primal. And as she gets to know the real Liam O’Reilly behind the charming smiles and sexy lines, he becomes so much deadlier. Because the protective, self-sacrificing man underneath his facade is just the sort she could fall for.
Scrying for Summer is the second book in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles and it picks up right where the first book left off. Liam needs help from a foe. Her name is Jev and she’s a witch who is tough and a fighter, but also has a heart of gold. Liam isn’t very likable in the beginning, but that changes as he spends more time with Jev. He has alienated everyone else because he uses them for his own gain. Yes, that gain is protecting those he loves, but it doesn’t matter to those he used.
As with the first book, Hunting for Spring, this one was well written and the characters are well developed. There is a lot of action and fighting in the story, which held my attention. I also enjoyed the snarky push/pull relationship and chemistry between Jev and Liam. However, just like with the first book, I could not fully get into the story as I found it didn’t hold my attention long enough. In my opinion, a few things could have been left out to make this a shorter story and I probably would have enjoyed it more.
Like the first book, Scrying for Summer is a good story, it just wasn’t the one for me.
