A Magical Journey of Epic Romance

Layla Callaway has found comfort in her new role as a coven member, and she's declared her love for the heartthrob who led her home, but as beautiful as her life appears, it's shadowed by the evil threatening to rip it away.

After years of meaningless flings, Quin Kavanagh has finally found love in Layla and yearns to keep her close, but the strength and longevity of their relationship is tested by Finley, a powerful wizard who promises to rid Layla's life of danger... then claim her as his reward.

The Enemy
They've attacked once, leaving Layla with grievous injuries, and the worst has yet to come. The Stranger has drawn closer than anyone knows. And with the disappearance of his lieutenant, Agro is on a rampage, determined to get his witch... or make her family pay.

Stretching from coast to coast and teeming with loathed villains and beloved heroes, The Mystic Series is rich with emotion, magic and intrigue. Whether the reader is laughing, crying or falling in love, they'll find themselves invested in Layla's fate through the rich dialogue and emotionally driven characters that weave the web of this fiery tale.

B.C Burgess does it yet again! She captivates readers with her a point where you cannot stop reading. I don't usually read books about witches and wizards but I am so glad I picked this series to read. It is a magical ride filled with heartbreak, love, family, enemies, magic, passion. I was happy to find out more about Finley and happy about the outcome. I was getting very frustrated! At that point I also got frustrated with Layla but oh so worth the frustration! I loved the strong connection between Layla and Quin. LOVE how he is always there for her, protects her and spoils her. I also appreciate seeing how much the coven takes care of their own family. They are selfless and really want to help no matter the pain and cost. It's amazing what kind of bond they have. My favorite scene was towards the end when Quin and Layla finally come together. MMM Quin. You did awesome!!! I had to read this chapter very slowly because I was waiting since book one for it :D I love these series because they have the love and passion but they also have a story line, great characters and an awesome emotional roller coaster. One chapter I am happy the next I want to cry. I love authors who give their all!! You can tell B.C. Burgess takes her time and write with her heart, its not just words, its all so much more.

B.C. Burgess' "Deception" is the 3rd novel in her magical (pun intended) Mystic Series. The story of Layla Love and Quin picks up where it left off in Impassion, Layla and Quin asleep in each others' arms, after declaring their feelings for one another. Soon after, their relations develops even further, though Finley's constant pressuring of Layla to leave Quin and join with him is a necessary itch needing to be scratched, sooner rather than later. Apart from Finley's obsession (yes I feel quite justified calling his fixation on Layla Love just that), love in its various forms are abundant in this installment, as they are in its predecessors. Hell, every other emotion makes an appearance as well. Honestly, I don't know how Burgess does it: love, hate, lust, desire, need, trust, suspicion, loyalty, envy, and a plethora of other emotions all woven intricately into this story, creating a tapestry so rich, you can't help but gape in awe. Layla Love (ok, I thinks it's obvious I enjoy calling her that) is truly is an angel at heart. She feels the pain of others as if it's her own, and does all she can to ease what pain she can, feeling worse when she can do nothing. This is classic Layla because feeling fault for the happenings of her coven is something she seems to have no control over. This only makes her character shine evermore. What's not love about a woman who wants everyone around her to feel love, security and joy? Quin sets the standard so high, I feel inadequate compared to him (I'm aware that he's a fictional character; that doesn't lessen the blow that he's what every woman dreams of in a man). Though, Layla Love is the one woman who he devotes his life to pleasing and she complains no more than any sane woman would with a man like Quinlan on her arm. He lives to please and protect her, and aches when he fails to do either. Layla's "thorough hero" is the definition of a real man and every fiber of his being is Layla's do with as she pleases. Of course where would a review be without mentioning the most adorable character in the series: Alana! I can't get enough of her sweet and lovey nature. I wish she was my little sister; she's so much fun to read. I love how the "W's" come out in almost everything she says; it's undeniably cute. Who couldn't love a little dove such as Alana? I cannot get enough of B.C. Burgess' Mystic Series and once I'm finished with the newest book, I'm left eagerly (and impatiently) awaiting the next installment. Burgess has the unique gift to grasp your heartstrings and play with them as you journey through life with Layla Love, Quin and their coven. Their heart-wrenching pain is your own, but their otherworldly love is as well, and if I didn't say so myself, they complement one another in a way I never thought possible. Through the pain, the love and security is made that much more real and appreciated. Burgess is now officially the author to top on every one of my lists!

B. C. Burgess has done it again!!!! Deception was just as good, if not better, than the first two books in the series! I came across a couple of spelling mistakes, but nothing bad enough that affected my reading of the book. I absolutely love reading this series! Layla & Quin are such strong characters and their parts are so well-written! There were a few twists & turns that I didn't see coming, although there was at least one twist that I kind of expected but it didn't go quite the way I thought it would. The entire plot and characters are so well developed, I can't wait for more! From the way that the book ended, I can't wait to see what happens in the next book! DISCLAIMER: This book was gifted to me by the author (through the Goodreads) website in exchange for an honest  review. The opinions expressed here are my own, and no money or other compensation was provided for this review.

Absolutely couldn't wait to read this one after reading the first two! And now I'm so anxious for the fourth book! I can't say enough about this book! I just finished it and am so happy for Quinn and Layla! My final thought was: It's about time! (Lol) I absolutely love their relationship! I love that B C Burgess gives you so much that you feel as if you are there with the characters! And the epilogue has me very anxious as well for the next book. After what finally happened for Quinn & Layla at the end of this book, I can't wait to read more about it in the next book! I'm also anxious to see more about Bri & Kegan. This book definately was another amazing book in this amazing series! B C Burgess has definately wowed me again with this one! Loved it and can't wait for the next! Thank you B C Burgess for sharing your amazing talent!!!

Bonnie has done it again! Deception is the 3rd book in the Mystic series and it's absolutely magnificent, spell binding, and I never wanted it to end! If I could give a million stars I would. All 3 books suck you right in from the beginning! Quin is truly one of a kind who is devoted to Layla and will stop at nothing to keep her safe. Layla is adjusting to her new life, getting to know her family, her strength and devotion towards her loved ones makes my heart swell with happiness. There are some very tense moments in this book (I won't give too much away) and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough on my nook. Bonnie does an amazing job describing everything that I felt like I was there. Like the first 2 books the family bonds and their love, devotion brought me to tears! When Layla's life is threatened she reaches to the core of her soul,and the love in her heart to try to survive! Do not hesitate to read this series.You'll love it.

Awesome Book!!! This is the third book in The Mystic Series by BC Burgess,and this series keeps getting better and better. If you are thinking about this book please buy all three of them and read them in order. You will not want to miss a single thing! This author is wonderful and tells the story so well that it makes you feel like you are a part of the family. I love Layla and Quin's story. I love all of the characters in this book well except for the bad guys like Argo. I don't want to leave any spoilers but I have to say that the author can't write these books fast enough for me. I am ready for the next book now!!! I am happy with the ending of this book because it left off at a perfect point, and leaves you wondering what is going to happen in the next book.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

This book is a great continuation of a series that I love and just keeps getting better. Witches and hot guys. What more could you want in a book?

I'm glad I landed on this series because it is now my number one favorite book series. This story plot is so amazing. It just keeps getting steamier and hotter! I can't seem to put any of them down! Finley and Argo are on my dislike list, but the villains make the story that much more interesting.

And the hits just keep on coming! Deception does not fail to live up to the towering expectations BC Burgess has set for herself with the first two novels in the Mystic Series. Once again I could not put the book down and finished it in less than 12 hours! This book had me so heated that in Chapter 13 (fitting right?) I actually had to stop reading and walk off the anger seething through my veins. After pacing in the dark for about 15 minutes and venting to the wonderful coven members I was able to hop back in and continue the amazing story within the pages of my kindle. So many questions and theories were answered and so many more posed. I would gush but I’m sure I would spill some spoilers and nobody wants that right? All I have to say is hunker down, because you won’t be able to stop reading until its over.
