Tangled Roots by Denise D. Young @ddyoungbooks @rararesources #BookReview #TangledRoots

Its Monday and it’s my birthday and I have the pleasure of sharing my review for Tangled Roots by Denise D. Young as part of the blog tour and huge thanks go to Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite.

About the book

A beautiful witch lost in time. A brooding farm boy with magic in his blood and a chip on his shoulder. Dark secrets and shadowy magic. Paranormal romance with a time slip awaits in the first book of this new series.

Cassie Gearhart casts a spell in the forest in the summer of 1974. The next thing she knows, she wakes up to find the world irrevocably changed. 

It’s 2019, for one thing. For another, all of her coven members have vanished, leaving behind only one man who holds the key to their secrets.

Nick Felson has sworn off magic, until a confused Cassie knocks on his door in the middle of the night, somehow missing forty-five years’ worth of time. But Nick knows falling for the captivating witch means letting magic back into his life—and that’s one line he swore he’d never cross.

Can Cassie unravel the mystery that transported her decades into the future? And can Nick resist the powerful magic and heart-pounding passion that swirl in the air whenever he and Cassie are together?

The Tangled Magic Series is intended for readers 18-plus who enjoy fast-paced reads, wild and witchy magic, swoon-worthy kisses, and small-town charm. The series is best read in order.

Tangled Roots is available to purchase now – Amazon UK

My thoughts

Nick has a deep sadness and is in the process of selling up and starting afresh somewhere else when there’s a knock at his door one evening and everything changes. Cassie finds herself knocking on the door to which Ginny her friend stays, confused at why the door is locked as it’s never locked and the coven sisters can come and go as they please she’s surprised when Nick opens the door and soon realises she may be in the right place but things have definitely changed and she has to figure out how and why.

I really liked both Nick and Cassie, Nick doesn’t want to practise magic anymore, something bad has made him want to forget about it and thankfully we find out that reason. Cassie ignites the magic inside him though and there’s an instant spark between the two and not just a magical spark.

Tangled Roots is a novella so it is quite a quick read but it is packed full to brim and kept my attention the whole way through. I love a story about magic and witches and although I’ve not read many of late this has ignited my passion for them again and I’m really looking forward to reading more in this series. I wouldn’t say we’re left on a cliffhanger but it leaves you knowing there’s a lot more to come, it’s exciting.

I’ll be completely honest and say this novella was a complete surprise to me, I honestly didn’t expect it to pack a punch like it did. It’s filled with mystery, magic and there are a couple of quite steamy scenes and it wasn’t until after I’d read it I noticed it has a note saying it is recommended for readers of 18-plus (thankfully I am just over 18 🤣).

So yes I’ll definitely be recommending Tangled Roots and I’m super excited to read more about Nick and Cassie and see what the future holds for them.
