Review: ENCHANTED DESIRE by Rayka Mennen

Gina Caito, "scion of a powerful magical family, had no magic." According to ancient wisdom, if a witches did not manifest their powers, they would endure torture until the trauma evoked a latent magic. What possible torture could there be?

Of course, she wasn't completely without magic; she did have sporadic premonitions, which could never hold a candle to the ones by her powerful mother. Needless to say: her lack of power was a disappointment to her parents. On top of her "failures," Gina couldn't shake the feeling that something was missing in her life. Then comes Eric, the sinfully sexy guy that fires up her fantasies. Although she couldn't help wanting him, she couldn't refute his endless string of short-term relationships.

Even though the attraction between Gina and Eric was palpable, the build-up was rather slow. Their status or "destiny" would depend on one date. I love a good witch story, however, this one really didn't spend as much time on the magical side as I would've wanted. The pace was dawdling, although the story was well-written for the most part. It's just your typical love story, but I have to say that the chemistry between the characters was not as "enchanted" as I thought it be.  

My rating: 3 stars
