First, let me just say that I have been itching for a good UF read and let me tell you that Dirty Magic just hit the right spot. It has a dangerous world full of magic, bad people, hot men and a friggin kick ass heroine. I am so very excited for this series.

Dirty Magic is a powerful start to a new series. It is not your typical witch and sorcerer type of book. The magic that is used here is described to be more scientific or knowledge based. Yes, there is magic but not in a kooky or spooky way. Some magic is used in daily life and some can even get caught up in addiction from its use. Kinda cool, right? I would love to have a potion to help me heal fast or become stronger or fast. Imagine the things I can do with that.

Well with all that power, comes responsibilities and Kate Prospero is an agent working for a magic enforcement to help control the misuse of any magic. In the wrong hands, it can be used for evil. There is a rogue using and selling a magic potion that is causing civilians to turn and commit murder. Prospero and her team are on the task to find out who is making a potion.  I love Kate in her CSI persona. She is kick ass cop with a purpose but she is not perfect.  She is complete with a flaw and a past that will come back to haunt her.

Kate will have to work with a very hot cop and will bump into an old fling forcing her to go back to her past. A love triangle. It wasn’t as strong in this installment, but I’m hoping it gets stronger in the next book. Not that I like a heavy love triangle but I really would love to see Kate fall into the very hot rich and powerful old love. There is just something about a billionaire that catches my eye. Did I mention he has powers? Right. On the other hand, the hot cop is giving a very strong vibe of an alpha male, but more than willing to let Kate be the kick ass girl that she is.

     Dirty Magic Audiobook Narration by Morgan Hallett – 4 Hearts

Narrator Morgan Hallett The narrator, Morgan Hallett, did a fantastic job. She did well on the timing and pitch to the jokes and some banters of the characters. The speed of her voice was perfect for the action parts and never to slow. I had no problem listening to her voice as Kate and the heroes of this book. Well done Ms. Hallett.

  1. I’ve seen this book going around on Twitter and have thought about it several times. I didn’t realize it was available on audio. The fact that the narrator is good really makes me want to check it out. Great review. Looks interesting.

    • Thanks Melanie, It really is a great read. I strongly recommended it. =)

  2. I’m starting it today Angela, It sounds really good 🙂

    • Can’t wait what you think Loupe! I think we will agree on this one.

  3. I like how you described the magic. Love kick ass heroines! Awesome review, Angela!

  4. I have this one still sitting on my Kindle app from Netgalley. I need to read it. I enjoyed Wells’ Sabina Kane series.

    • OMG. This one I recommended moving to the top. It’s really worth your time.

  5. Fantastic review Angela, I have this is my kindle TBR pile and maybe I will whispersync if available. I am excited to dive in!

  6. I have this, better get my ass in gear! I’ve been weaning off book tours so I can read more pleasure books, this one included. Great review!

    • Yes move it to the top! I hope you give it a try.

  7. Oh Angela those are some of my favorite things. Hot heroes and kick ass heroines. Perfect! I’m gonna have to give these a go. been a while since I’ve read a good UF.

    • I’ve seen a few say that there hasn’t been a good UF in a while. I believed them. =)

  8. Great review Angela! I haven’t read any of Jaye Wells’ books (don’t judge me…my TBR is long!) but this sounds like a winner. Dangerous world, hot men and kick ass heroine…I’m in! 🙂

    • No judging here. This is my first Jaye Wells. I hope you give it a try and like it. 🙂

  9. I love Jaye Wells, Loved her Sibina Kane series. Great to know there’s a new series.

  10. Yay! I loved this book as well. Can’t wait for book two.

    • Never read her Sibina Kane but heard great things. Maybe someday. 🙂 but this one is awesome!

    • Lily, me too. I hope it will live up to this book.

  11. I like that this isn’t your typical witch / sorcerer type book. I’m not a huge fan of those, but I think I would enjoy this one, especially in audio. Great review Angela! I thought I typed in the wrong blog address for a moment there. LOL 😀

    • Thanks Carmel,Loupe was nice enough to invite me guest here. =)

  12. Sold! This sounds fantastic! I like that magic is a little more scientific based. Definitely adding it to my tbr/wishlist.

    • Yup. Not witchy at all. I hope you like it Christy.

  13. Sign me up for a love potion 😉
    I generally stay away from witch/magic books because they tend to be pretty cheesy, mostly in YA, but this one sounds really promising. I’m okay with love triangles as long as they work. I haven’t even read the book and can tell I’m going to be on the billionaire’s side, LOL.

    • Alise, this is not cheesy at all. And yeah. The potions are kinda cool. I’d prolly ask for the one that gives me energy to do all my errands, work out, read and maybe one that would make me less hungry.
