A Little Bit of Magic Third Time's a Charm…….by Marquita Valentine This novel was given to me by the author for an honest review. Alexander “Sasha” Romanov is the man we love to hate! We met him in Twice Tempted, where he was instrumental in almost ruining Christian Romanov and Zoe Ambrose’s happily ever after. Sasha thinks of himself as the” Executive Assistant to the destroyer of lives” and that particular destroyer is Vladimir Romanov, his uncle and Christians father. Rose Holland is the owner of an apothecary shop, Carolina Dreams in Holland Springs , North Carolina. She sells ”magical” skin and hair products, and is known for her love potions. She and her two sisters, Skye and Summer have the reputation of having mystical powers. When Rose stumbles on a body in her neighbor’s tobacco field, lying in a heap, with vultures circling, she rushes to the rescue; only to find out it is Sasha, who has already broken her heart once. She drives him to her home patches him up, and he’s gone out of her life again, for good. Maybe! What follows is a story of deceit, blackmail and pain, but the undercurrent of love cannot be denied. We learn the reason for Sasha‘s unexplained persistence in carrying out Vladimir’s evil wishes. Rose’s love for her sisters is put to the test, as she faces life on her own again. She desperately wants to trust Sasha, but how can she? There are so many twists and turns in this story, I couldn’t put it down! The epilogue put a great big smile on my face! I recommend this wonderful story to people who believe a bad boy can become a caring, loving man, with the help of a woman who loves him, and maybe a little pinch of magic.

Sasha Romanov is my new favorite contemporary hero. He's handsome, intelligent and filthy rich. And he dresses to kill. Add in his witty charm and you can't help but root for him when he so clearly doesn't deserve it. Lucky for sweet Rose, she's got a few tricks up her sleeve to tame him. Marquita Valentine writes a charming small town love story that will leave you wanting more of Holland Springs.

This is the second book that I have read from Marquita Valentine. She definitely knows how to open her stories with a bang!! Twice Tempted's opening line was "The first thing you need to do in Vegas is get laid." and Third Time's a Charm opens with the heroine discovering the heroe's badly beaten body in a field along side the road!! Both are definitely attention grabbing!!! LOL I absolutely loved Twice Tempted and couldn't wait to read Sasha's book. Third Time's a Charm was a little sadder then I thought it was going to be, but it was still a great read. I had a love~hate relationship with Sasha through out most of the book. He would have some really great moments, especially with Ivy, and then he would ruin it. LOL In the end he definitely redeemed himself~loved the epilogue!!! I can't wait to see what Marquita has in store for the rest of the series. I am loving it so far. I'm totally routing for Sebastian to get his own book!!! ;) Third Time's a Charm is another winner for Marquita and a great addition to the series. 5 out of 5 rating. ***ARC graciously provided by Marquita Valentine~Thank you so much!!! It was absolutely my pleasure to read!!! :) Mariann at Belle's Book Bag

This book was so much better than Twice Tempted. I really enjoyed Sasha and Rose's characters. I felt equally bad for both of them because of the hurt they were going through and as a result they ended up hurting each other. All in the name of family, how effed up is up?! I certainly did love how Sasha chose to come clean and be honest with Rose, that was the mature thing to do. In the end so many bad things happened to her b/c of her family's history but she persevered and moved on..her character was very strong! Oh and I love how Vladimir finally got his comeuppance! Thank you Sebastian! SR
