Availability: Ready to download

When Ash and her sister inherited their grandmother’s magic shop, they figured they’d be selling crystals and smudge sticks to ageing hippies. Instead, they find themselves dealing with a failing business and a revolving door of tinsel-haired elves and fairy-tale princes. 
 And that’s not even the weird part. 
 Cursed in some sort of freakish loop, Ash wakes up every morning When Ash and her sister inherited their grandmother’s magic shop, they figured they’d be selling crystals and smudge sticks to ageing hippies. Instead, they find themselves dealing with a failing business and a revolving door of tinsel-haired elves and fairy-tale princes. 
 And that’s not even the weird part. 
 Cursed in some sort of freakish loop, Ash wakes up every morning next to her sister’s latest book boyfriend, or fangirl crush. Frazzled by her unwanted nocturnal visitors, Ash fights for the focus needed to save the shop from bankruptcy. Then, in walks Gabe. Looking like a biker wet dream, Ash immediately dismisses him as another of her sister’s lusty manifestations. But this hottie is real and may hold the key to saving their business. 
 Things appear to be looking up, until an inter-dimensional gateway is discovered in the store that allows characters from every multiverse imaginable to cross over. Can the sisters learn how to control the portal before it destroys the line between fact and fiction? 
 If you love paranormal romance and urban fantasy tropes, but want to have a bit of fun with them sometimes, this is your book. If you watched a lot of bad 80s fantasy with papier-mâché props, noticed all romance guys have massive wangs or checked the back of a wardrobe to see if there was a portal to another realm, this is your book. If you like snarky, sex-positive female characters, this is your book. If you still have a total soft spot for talking animals and really wish you could have one of your own, this is your book.

 Author note: This book operates as a standalone, but will form part of a series featuring other characters and as a result, will contain some unresolved plot lines. Romance is steamy and explicit sex scenes are a feature, so definitely 18+. Australian English has been used, so if sweary dialogue is going to put you off, do not read this.

    Ok read This started off really good, but when she got to the other world I felt like it was a different book, and couldn’t wait to end it. There should have been more “love story” between the two. It all just felt like filler, and that the author had to educate me on what a rapist was and why they did it. Meh. There were a bunch of typos/missed words/wrong words or wrong sentence structure. At first I thought it was because of the language it was written from (uk/British English), but nope.

    Action packed Sam Hall has written an action-packed, magic-filled story about two sisters and how they learn to handle the gift of their Man's magic store. They lost her before she could train them or even tell them about the truly magical side of the store. If you like well written characters and captivating stories with a surprising batch of twists, then you will love this book.

    Interesting, but sadly not rh All the tropes in one story: Good, solid, motorcycle riding, tattooed gage falling for cold hearted, saves the day big sister. Little day dreaming sister who finally gets to come out of the shadows and be the heroine by pulling magic and dragons out of thin air. Liked it enough to want to know what happens to miazydar, flea, jez, and shane, so onward to the next one in this series.

    Crazy fun! This is a crazy fun book! About 1/3 of the way through, I started questioning where everything was leading too. And then it all took a sharp left turn! Wow I was not expecting that! Prior to the left turn, I was thinking I probably wouldn’t finish the book, but I’m glad I did!

    So wonderful. I had the huge pleasure of reading this as an ARC and was blown away by the whole thing. Unique plot, engaging character, fabulously written. Where my original review went I have no idea, but when this popped up for my re-read I am glad to say again how much I love it. Sam Hall is so talented and I love the way her brain works. Always ready to read more.

    WOW. In ALL the right ways I really, REALLY enjoyed this book. I love how all the main characters have their hangups, and all have ways they arw broken and screwed up. This is a glorious book written for all the nerds and geeks and I adore all the pop culture references. It's just spectacular and I'm SO GLAD I read it. WOW.

    Almost 5..i hate Tess..like a lot It was cute. Loved so many parts of this book. Would have really enjoyed a few more book/movie wake ups. Went from cute to dark once they were in the other well. Like stomach turning. But I hate Tess, so much. If she was 14 it would be one thing, but she was supposed to be a grown *** woman. Seriously took a star off for her alone.

    What a great mix of magic and steam. Lots of action and unpredictable plot. You’re never sure what will happen next and can you turn the pages fast enough. Gabe is a great aloha hero even when he gets a little overbearing. Love this book and am off to get the sequel.

    Good but not what I have come to expect This was a good read. It was a little slow and more convoluted than I was expecting. Not the RH worlds I have come to expect from this author.

Our FMC learns the hard way that not all Fairy Tales have a Happy Ending. In fact some of them are downright dangerous. Ash and her sister Tess have inherited their Grandmother’s Magic shop after she passes. Little do they realise just what an adventure this will turn out to be. As the sisters discover that they have a magical portal to other realms in the back of the shop, Ash, the eldest sister also discovers she has a serious love connection with Biker Gabe - who she thinks must be a character from one of her sisters late night readings. Ash, Gabe and Flea (co-inhabitant of the magic shop and talented tattoo artist with a crush on Tess) race headlong into the portal to find Tess, who has snuck through in the middle of the night seeking adventure! Mayhem and danger follow as they encounter the locals. Not so nice talking canine folk, a Prince with a curse and bad attitude are waiting on the other side. There are quite a lot of plot twists and a hefty amount of scary scenes in here to put you off portal travel for life IMO. Some heavy fights scenes and underlying it all is the beautiful love story of Ash and Gabe. Warning for steamy sex scenes scattered throughout and TW for non-con scene. Add in some scary fight sequences and it makes this an 18+ read. I quite liked it. Four Stars.

    Loved, loved this! Ash was perfect as the lead female. Gabe was also amazing as the H. Some parts had me in stitches with laughter, and some parts had me queasy (dinner time🤢) Overall, I loved this book and can't wait to continue with the story. Loved, loved this!

    Bloody and Brilliant This book manages to walk that fine line where humor and good old fashioned brutality work in perfect harmony. It’s a social commentary, a paranormal romance, twisted fairy tale re-telling, and MC urban fantasy all rolled into one. It’s an original and epic read!

    Troupes galore Ash and Tess are charismatic women that fight for what they want. There were many laugh out moments. Not to mention covering about all the troupes you can imagine!

    Just wow. It's been a while since I've read something so original. I think I've found a new writer for my "must read" list. Just wow. It's been a while since I've read something so original. I think I've found a new writer for my "must read" list.

    Fantastic!! I love a book with comedy, i also love a book with a serious and complex story. This book was pretty, at no point did i do my eyes and say anything was stupid.

    It has been a wild ride. It started off just as I expected - a light-hearted, fun urban fantasy comedy.... and then started changing genres in the most unexpected directions, including a steamy romance, fantasy, horror, and adventure/thriller. Two things are for sure: it's not for the light-hearted and you cannot treat it too seriously (it's obvious that the author doesn't, it's all for fun, otherwise I would have started picking it apart).

The book is very explicit both in the sex and gore departments. I really enjoyed the idea behind it as well as the strong relationship between the sisters. If you are looking for a fast and fun read that will be able to shock you, this one is for you. However, I do not recommend reading it on public transportation - I scared off a couple of people who were trying to read over my shoulder.

    This book was my first experience reading Sam Hall’s work. I’m SO happy that I’ve found this author. I was laughing out loud throughout. The fmc, Ash, is feisty yet vulnerable and the steamy scenes are perfect. I want a Gabe in my life! I also loved the interaction with Ash’s friends and family, Jez definitely became a favourite and I’d love to see a spin-off with her story. *I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

    This is one unique paranormal romance that is beyond steamy and is filled with magic. I have not read a PNR even close to this book, it takes magic and the paranormal to a new level. Ash and Gabe have amazing off the charts chemistry and great dynamics. Gabe is definitely an alpha who gets his way, but its to push Ash to be her fullest. The world building is incredible. There are hilarious moments that will make you laugh out loud.
