Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense by A. D. Marrow

Breaking it off with her long-time non-magical boyfriend, Evan, was for his own good. At least that's what Maggie Owen tells herself. After all, a witch and a human can have no future together. Her vision told her so. But now it seems the universe is exacting revenge for upsetting the balance of what "should be"

Overview

Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense by A. D. Marrow

Breaking it off with her long-time non-magical boyfriend, Evan, was for his own good. At least that's what Maggie Owen tells herself. After all, a witch and a human can have no future together. Her vision told her so. But now it seems the universe is exacting revenge for upsetting the balance of what "should be" and her heart is telling her she was wrong.

Evan Jackson can't believe his bad luck. It's been a year since Maggie broke his heart, and now his business partner has hired her as their new receptionist. Fine, they need the help. But no way will he let her get close again. He can't take another heartbreak from the woman he still dreams about, even if it feels like there's still a magical pull between them.

Being in the same building with Evan is a start, but it's going to take more than Maggie's special talents and a wink to get the hard-hearted bad-boy to see that love is really more than just cosmic nonsense and set the universe back into balance.

Take Bewitched, mix in a little Miami Ink For a Bewitching Debut – 4 Enchanted Stars Disclaimer: While I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author for an honest review, I enjoyed the book so much I purchased it for my ebookshelf. This lovers-reunited novella, found Maggie Owen accepting a job at the very tattoo shop co-owned by her ex-boyfriend, Evan Jackson. In a cosmically ironic turn of events, their reunion was the impetus they needed to face their strong feelings for each other and the reasons for their breakup. There were several naughty, but not overtly explicit, sex scenes, that pulled readers in, as Maggie and Evan’s personal barriers were torn down and their mutual desire heated up. They had to look past their surface attraction, to the deep feelings underneath and both learned to accept the other’s gifts, including Maggie’s magical connection. Annabel, Maggie’s sister and Liam, Evan’s business partner and friend, rounded out the cast and there were hints of a possible love match for Liam in future books. These secondary characters were even funnier and snarkier than the lead characters. My favorite quote was delivered by Annabel as she described Evan, “Maggie, the man looks like Aphrodite and David Gandy had a love baby. He loves art and building stuff. He likes puppies. He volunteers at a soup kitchen. His favorite movie is Love Actually for heaven’s sake.” (Marrow, A. D. (2014-03-24). Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense (Entangled Covet) (Kindle Locations 246-247). Entangled Publishing, LLC. Kindle Edition.) Who wouldn’t fall for a tattooed good boy, like that? My only note was that the story was too short. I know A.D. Marrow planned to continue the series but this reader would have enjoyed some flashbacks to the characters’ “meet cute,” “first date,” or “first sex scene.” The length did not detract from the story - I just wanted more! However, fans of Entangled books will be pleasantly surprised with at least one cameo from another author’s popular MMA fighter series. I look forward to Ms. Marrow’s future books and recommend Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense for those days when you need a short, sweet and funny happily ever after to curl up with on a cold or rainy day.

Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense by AD Marrow  This was a fantastic book. I was involved with the characters from the very first page. I love how their lives are intertwined even when they try not to be. Evan and Maggie try to tempt Fate and the cosmos and in the end Fate always wins. I love that Maggie has a secret and Evan is totally cool with it and accepts her for who she is.  One of my favorite things about this book is the dialog. It is extremely witty and fun. Its how you could see you and your friends talk in a relaxed setting. It's perfect. I recommend this book to anyone, even if paranormal isn't your cup of tea. You won't be disappointed.   I was given an ARC from the Author for my honest review.

Breaking it off with her long-time non-magical boyfriend, Evan was for his own good. At least that's what Maggie Owen tells herself. After all, a witch and a human can have no future together. Her vision told her so. But now it seems the universe is exacting revenge for upsetting the balance of what "should be" and her heart is telling her she was wrong…. I adored this light paranormal read. It was a quick, sexy, and fun read. What I loved most was how snazzy and witty the characters were, without coming off as forced. I was able to read the book in a couple of hours because I could not put it down. The conflict was believable, the characters were spicy, and the story line was intriguing, but best off all it was filled with tons of humour. Well I was at least laughing my ass off. There was an epilogue that hinted at more stories to come, and I for one am very eager to read more of AD Marrows’ novels.

Magical Maggie Owen interpreted a vision incorrectly which lead to a year of hell for her and her ex-boyfriend Evan Jackson. Now the universe has intervened and thrown them back together. Can a witch and a mere mortal live happily ever after? Overall, LOVE AND OTHER COSMIC NONSENSE is a fun read filled with many laughs and heartwarming moments, and I’m looking forward to spending more time with A.D.’s wonderfully crafted characters.

Loved this book! Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense draws you in from the very first page. A.D. Marrow is wonderful at building characters that you love to love and hate to leave. Maggie and Evan get a second chance at love, will they take it? Will they make it? If you love short reads that pack a whole lotta living and romance in, you will love A.D. Marrow's Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense. I can't wait for Liam's story and more from this author. She is definitely on my "Authors To Watch List" I received a copy of Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense free from the author for a honest review.

Get ready to set aside some time, because when you open this little gem, you aren't going to want to put it down until the end. Wonderful debut release for an author I will be watching. I would love to see more about these characters, as well...wink-wink!

Good Book! Are you looking for a fun and magical novella? If so, then pick up a copy of Love And Other Cosmic Nonsense by A.D. Marrow. This is a quick read that will keep you entertained from beginning to end. Maggie and Annabel Owen are sisters with the magical ability of witchcraft. This story focuses on Maggie and the love of her life, Evan Jackson. Maggie and Evan were once in love and lust with each other. Then one day, Maggie had a vision which prompted her to end their harmonious and loving relationship. Maggie was just as miserable as Evan, although at least Maggie knew why they broke up, yet she never provided Evan with any kind of explanation. Evan's heart was broken. Now it is a year later and they are both putting their lives back together. Evan and his business partner Liam, who is also a good friend, own a upscale tattoo parlor/art gallery, an ingenious concept really. The tattoos that Evan creates ultimately become a framed piece of art. Unbeknownst to Evan, Liam has hired Maggie for their receptionist position. Seeing each other once again stirs up all the love and happiness they shared in the past. With a little magical intervention from Annabel, and some meddling from Liam, they finally get their happily ever after. This is a hot read that is sexy and fun. The characters are likeable, interesting and enjoyable. The references to the 1960s TV show Bewitched, put a huge smile on my face. Would love to read a follow-up story about Annabel and Liam, hint, hint.

Evan and Maggie are meant to be together but Maggie has a “vision” about Evan’s dreams not coming true if she remains in his life. Maggie loves Evan so much that she would rather sacrifice their relationship—and her happiness—so he can achieve his dreams. Little does Maggie know that Evan’s dreams include her. What a crazy tale of magic, tattoos and love! This quick read shows us the pros and cons of self-fulfilling prophecy. It seems to do more damage than good. In this case, it did just that, but fate—and the cosmos—directed Maggie and Evan back where they needed to be: with each other.  I really enjoyed the book and absolutely loved Maggie and Evan. The secondary characters were exceptionally brilliant and I hope this storyline will continue in future books. There is so much here to work with that it would be a shame not to extend the story. I recommend this book to anyone who believes in love…and other cosmic nonsense :)

I wanted to read Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense by A.D. Marrow, because the premise of the story just sounded fun. I mean you have a witch, Maggie Owen, who has a vision and ends up breaking up with her boyfriend, Evan Jackson. However, fate brings them back together to fix a wrong. All right, there was some cute moments in the story. However, the story could have been a little longer. I just felt that Evan and Maggie kind of rushed back into a relationship. Yes, they still had a chemistry, but just felt hurried. I think that if the reconnecting part could have been drawn out and develop more would have been better. I think it would have helped if there was a reconcile period to become friends then lovers would have been more of my taste.  However, it wasn't a bad read. Actually, the story had a lot potential and I'm curious on how the other stories will proceed with this series. So, if you are looking a really quick read, you can give Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense a try.

***Received from Entangled Publishing for an honest review*** (This is a short story/novella. This review is not based on story length but story content as length has very little to do with how much I enjoy a book.) Maggie's got magical powers. Her boyfriend Evan doesn't. Maggie dreams of Evan losing everything if they stay together and does what any sensible witch would do--ends their relationship. Evan is broken. But with a little bit of help from the universe (plus two very concerned people), Evan and Maggie manage to work together at Evan's business, Purple Moon Studio, and find some things can't be altered by the universe or stars or dreams. Their love is as strong now as it was then, and they are happier together than they could ever be when apart. I really enjoyed the narrative of this story. There were so many tones and variations, each one unique depending on whose POV I was in. It made for laugh out loud, smirk-filled reading which made it a quick enjoyable story. Ms. Marrow's created a great cast of characters. My only question is: Will the next book involve Maggie's sister and Evan's business partner? Hmm...

Title: Love And Other Cosmic Nonsense - Cosmic Nonsense Series Author: A. D. Marrow Publisher: Entangled Publishing Published: March 2014 ISBN: 13-978-16266-516-7 E-Book ASIN: B00IQOC30C Pages: 69 Genre: Romance Tags: Paranormal, Fantasy, Witches Sensual Level: Overall Rating: Very Good Maggie Owen knew the cosmos was having a great big laugh at her expense. Hadn't she left Evan so that her visions of him loosing his dreams? Her world had fallen apart and she lost her healing clinic and home. Now here she sat on the ground outside of her new job with a broken nose and covered in her own blood with Evan standing over her with anger and pity in his eyes. Yeah the universe was definitely having a great big belly laugh. Evan could not believe it. It had been just over a year since Maggie had walked out on him with no reason. She broke his heart and here she was covered in blood with her nose broken. What had Liam been thinking when he hired HER as the new receptionist? He was no where near ready to face her again yet. Why was she working here instead of her clinic? The bigger question was why was she still sitting there in pain and bleeding rather than using her magic to heal herself? No she so can not work here! NO! NO! NO! "Love And Other Cosmic Nonsense" starts with a bang that has you totally believing that the universe sometimes just gets bored watching those silly humans thinking that they are the masters of their lives. Just to have a laugh and to show who is really in charge they decide to play a game of pool and we are the one behind the eight ball just waiting to be knocked around for their pleasure and enjoyment. This short novella is a fun read that will leave you chuckling and satisfied. The main characters use humor and quick wit as they circle around one another trying to protect themselves from further pain. Yet anyone can tell you the truth is you can not fight destiny. When Maggie walked away from Evan she challenged the Cosmos and the Cosmos was more than happy to pick up the gauntlet and ran with it. Silly woman never stood a chance.

Maggie is a witch who received a vision that if she didn't break things off with her boyfriend that he would not be successful in life. And it would all be her fault. Not wanting to hurt Evan as she loved him she leaves him and she just can't seem to function or hold a job. Then she accepts a job as a receptionist for a tattoo parlor and runs into Evan there who is part owner. She finds out she just isn't over him. Evan can't believe his eyes when Maggie walks through the door. He couldn't believe that she left him and no has to protect his heart against her again. Cute book where the main characters are fighting their feelings and the antics that come with them fighting it. It adds an interesting element with Maggie being a witch. I wish I could stop time! Great book. I was given a copy of this book for my honest review.

Maggie had a vision(she's a witch) and because of it she broke up with Evan (an artist). Its a year later and her life and career have totally fallen apart. She just starts a new job only to find out Evan will be a co-worker. "These are two lost souls who desperately need each other but have been trying to survive apart.. Good characters, Maggie is adorable and so earnest, Evan is a wounded sexy hero. The secondary characters are really interesting too....hope its the beginning of a series...highly recommend it

I was fortunate to receive this book in exchange for an honest review.   This story is delightfully charming, a bit whimsical.  Maggie broke up with Evan because of a vision she had, even though she broke her heart in the process.  Maggie is quite the character, sappy romantic with a very smart and sarcastic attitude.  Evan just seems to be perfect, a little polished with a rugged appeal.  I enjoyed this quick story and loved even more the special appearance of Reid Andrews from Gina Maxwell's Seducing Cinderella!

Maggie Owen had made a mess of her love life. You would think a witch would be able to get it right. She left Evan so that he could accomplish his dream. Now neither of them is happy. What cosmic nonsense! A year later she's working for him and his partner. Their attraction is still there. It's buried by hurt and regret. Can they find their love again? A.D. Marrow has written a humorous and sexy paranormal. The dialogue is snappy and the characters are engaging. Maggie and Evan are perfect together. They may fight and bicker but you can feel their love. The secondary characters are charming. I love Annabel, Maggie's sister, and Liam, Evan's partner. They were the perfect matchmakers. Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense will make you smile.

Our heroine Maggie is a witch and had broken up with the love of her life the year before because of a vision she had. In it she believed that if she stayed with her uber hot tattoo artist boyfriend Evan, she would be responsible for ruining his life. Well unfortunately for Maggie she has misinterpreted her vision and the universe is set on punishing her for it. After her life falls apart Maggie finds herself jobless and living with her sister. Things are starting to look up for her when she lands a job at a local tattoo and art gallery, but what she doesn't know is that Evan is co-owner of the gallery and now her boss! Evan can't believe that Maggie is back in his life. As they spend time together at work they both quickly realize that they still love each other. However Evan doesn't know if he can risk his heart (and understandably so) on Maggie again. I loved this story! I can't believe how fast I blew through it. It was a sweet, sexy and fun story and I look forward to reading more books by A.D. Marrow in the future. Which on that note, I hope Liam's story will be told soon. *hint hint* :D So if you are looking for a quick, feel good read that ends with you happily sighing, then I highly recommend Love and Other Cosmic Nonsense. *I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Love & Magic galore!  This was a quick enjoyable read that I'm so glad I picked up! Love & Magic galore! I had no idea what to expect when I picked this up; I'm very happy to report that I was swept away from the beginning as it was truly an entertaining, hilarious read!  Evan is a non-magical tattoo artist who is still reeling a year after Maggie had broken up with him for no reason. He is trying to start over in a partnership with his friend when his friend hires Maggie to run their office.  Maggie is a cute & quirky witch who made the difficult decision to break up with the love of her life a year ago because of a vision she had. She was just trying to save him but has lost herself in the process. Now she's trying to start over. I have to share just a snippet...Evan, our tortured hero, compared his broken heart as being the equivalent of having a Mack truck backed up over his ball sac. Oh my! I loved the chemistry between the characters. I have always been a huge fan of witchy TV shows... and this reminded me of an updated Bewitched. I laughed over and over and was utterly captivated by the story. Be prepared for a few surprising twists too! I will be looking for more from this author! This was a quick enjoyable read that I'm so glad I picked up! 5 STARS!

This was a wonderfully fresh quick read. I love Maggie she is a witch who tries ot be normal as much as possible her and Evan are a wonderfully combustible pair. Have you ever met someone who just made you want to scream and kiss them all at the same time well that is Maggie and Evan in a nutshell Maggie broke both their hearts when she called their relationship off but the Fates had another thing in mind it brought them n=back together in an explosive kind of way. To find out more you will have to read the book ¿

This is the first book of AD Morrow's that I have read. It was a smashing beginning for me. This book is about my favorite type of paranormal. Witchcraft! I loved watching shows like Bewitched and Charmed and movies like The Craft. So it was fun not only to read a book that showcases this supernatural talent, but also references some real classics! AD has a real talent when it comes to putting a book together. This is a short read, but she ties things up nicely between the main characters, Maggie and Evan. I am not usually a fan of short reads because there is not enough time for the main characters to meet, fall madly in love and also have a bit of controversy. But in this case, the two knew each other first which offered them the opportunity jump into a story without having to wade in gently with drawn out explanations. When done correctly, you can shorten a story and come out with a fun, quick and sexy read. Kudos to AD for this accomplishment. Looking forward to more from this author!!

Breaking it off with her long-time non-magical boyfriend, Evan, was for his own good. At least that's what Maggie Owen tells herself. After all, a witch and a human can have no future together.

Review: This is a great, quick, paranormal read by first time author A.D. Marrow.   The story had a fast pace that and an imaginative story-line, plus interesting characters to keep me reading after lunch (sneaking at my desk) to see what would happen to Maggie and Evan. This story is about Maggie, who breaks up with her boyfriend, Evan, after she has a dream/vision that she ruins his life, Maggie is a witch.  Little does she know it did ruin his life but in a way she did not imagine.  A year later Maggie's own professional and personal life is in shambles, she has lost her business and goes for a receptionist job.  Who else should be there, but Evan!  Evan has picked himself up and is now part owner of the tattoo/art gallery.  I thought the idea of the business was quite ingenious.  Of course neither of them are really over each other and really do not do very well fighting their attraction, though their brains say they should.  After a night of passion and Maggie telling Evan the truth on why she left him, things come to a head.   The story's epilogue leads us to believe there are more stories to come in this world and I cannot wait to read them. 4stars
