4 years. That’s how long I’ve been waiting for the conclusion of Shanna Swendson’s Enchanted, Inc. series. I missed Katie Chandler. I missed Owen Palmer. And I missed the myriad of characters populating Swendson’s world. And just when I’d come to terms with not knowing how these characters would end up, Shanna Swendson’s 5th book of the series pops up on NetGalley. And all was well with the world. In this final installment, Katie is at it again. Not only is she drafted to save Enchanted, Inc. by coming up with a stellar marketing strategy her first day back on the job. But she has to help her super-wizardy, super-hot boyfriend, Owen Palmer, fight against the current crime wave crippling New York City. As with any long-awaited final installment of a series, there are certain questions the reader expects to be answered. What is Owen’s true parentage? Will he and Katie end up together? And who is really behind the plot to takeover the magical world? Thankfully, Shanna Swendson answers all those questions. And overall, I enjoyed reading this book. It felt like sitting down with an old friend, I hadn’t spoken to in years. There’s a certain amount of awkwardness in the beginning. But after a time, there’s a comfortable rhythm you settle into. Even though I REALLY did not like the end of Owen’s storyline (side eyes Shanna), I thoroughly enjoyed everything else. Kudos to Swendson for writing chick lit worth reading.
This was an exhausting read. These peeps were so screwed up. But I did enjoy it. Although, I thought Malpas could have been a bit more concise in her storytelling. But I'll hang around for the 3rd and final installment.
This was a surprisingly entertaining book. Despite that ridiculous book cover. But I sincerely hope in the next book, Alessandra gets a good editor. Because there is no excuse for mixing up your and you're, over and over again.
Since so many of my goodreads friends have read and raved, I decided to finally read it. And I wouldn't say I was disappointed exactly. But I will say it took me longer to get through this book than it should have. I liked the story. I liked the 2 main characters. And the sex scenes were pretty darn hot. But for some reason it all felt too easy, too boring. I wanted higher stakes here. I think if there were, I would have been much more invested. But it still wasn't a bad few hours of reading.
