Book description: What’s one little spell?

When you’re new to magic, one spell can be the difference between getting what you want...and ruining the lives of everyone you love.

Sixteen-year-old Madison has just embraced her magical powers. The trick now is learning how to control them. She and her boyfriend -and fellow witch- can’t even enjoy a simple kiss without getting shocked when their powers collide. Instead of mastering her new skills, though, Madison is stuck watching her kid brother and doing chores.

But being a witch does have its benefits. With a simple spell, Madison instantly conjures the help she needs around the house. Or so she thinks. Her idea of “help” invites trouble of its own as a pair of dangerous yet enticing beings enter her life. When a classmate disappears soon afterwards, Madison discovers she's the next victim of a threat she's powerless to resist...and there’s nothing it won’t kill to make her surrender.

Caught in the crossfire between two dashing but deadly creatures, Madison must figure out which one to trust and how to rid her world of the other—before one of them destroys her and everyone she cares about.

My thoughts:  I loved reading Embrace and was thrilled when the opportunity came to read Hold Tight. It has been awhile since I read the first book and honestly I couldn't remember many details. I was a little worried about how I would get up to speed in the second story. I worried for nothing, Cherie Coyler did a great job at bringing  me where I needed to be to get into and follow the story line.

Madison is intrigued by the fay. She wants a fairy to perform household chores for her in exchange for cream. After all, that is what she has been led to believe a fairy would like. Half way through summoning a fairy, she realized it was a mistake and stopped the spell, leaving it incomplete.

She inadvertently opened a gateway that is causing havoc in the human realm. A friend disappears and in her search for her friend, she realizes that there is much more at stake than on the surface.

This is a fun book dealing with witches, spells, and the fay. There are surprises for the reader leading to a fun reading experience.

This book contains mild swearing.
