Review for Shamelessly Spellbound by Cassandra Lawson
Melina Blackwood has never been tempted to get involved with any warlock. That is, until she met Trevor Dupree, a warlock who would need an accountant to figure out how many witches he’s been with. Trevor infuriates her, confuses her, but most of all, he makes her long for his touch. Turning him down wasn’t easy the first time, and she’s not sure she can resist the temptation now that Trevor is willing to do anything to make her his.
Trevor Dupree has been infatuated with far too many witches, believing every witch he’s dated had the potential to be the witch he’d spend the rest of his life with. At least, that’s how things were until he met Melina Blackwood. The irritating witch not only turned him down, she practically filed a restraining order to keep him away. Everyone figured he’d move on to the next witch, but six months later, she’s still the only witch he wants. Now, he’s tired of living an empty life, and willing to do whatever it takes to claim his witch.
One woman can prevent Melina and Trevor’s happily ever after. Her obsession with Trevor will drive her to do whatever it takes to possess him; she is even willing to kill for the man she loves.
Cassandra Lawson's "Shamelessly Spellbound" is the second tale in the Spells That Bind series. I love the affinity testing and magical bonding. Melina & Trevor have super hot chemistry! Off the charts! Loads of sexy scenes. I can't wait to read #3...it's coming soon and I think I know which couple it will feature!

While most mothers are worried about their adult children getting enough to eat, Allie’s succubus mom is worried about her having enough sex—and even Allie has to admit that six months without a man is too long. When she meets Dylan, a warlock with a history of avoiding commitment, he is a temptation she can’t resist. While Allie doesn’t trust warlocks, she knows this is one night only—no attachments and no emotions. Unfortunately, Dylan doesn’t agree with her plan to walk away, and Allie’s not sure how long she can resist the sexy warlock who could easily break her heart.
Determined to avoid his mother’s attempts to get him to settle down with a nice witch, Dylan has kept his romantic involvements limited to casual affairs with humans. That is until a crazy bet leads to a night of unforgettable sex with a succubus, and Dylan knows one night isn’t enough. There is just one problem with his plan to pursue Allie—she doesn’t trust warlocks. With a killer targeting the local succubus community, Dylan has his hands full trying to keep Allie safe and convince her she can trust him with her heart.
While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone novel.
My Review of #1:
Cassandra Lawson's "Sinfully Spellbound" is the first tale in the Spells That Bind series. The mythology is interesting with succubi, warlocks, etc. I like the affinity testing and bonding. Dylan and Allie's chemistry is off the charts! I love that their powers are so synergistic. Plenty of sexy scenes. Lots of twists and turns. I can't wait to read #2...I hope it's Trevor and Mel!
