Muse Alexandra has had it with the arrogant, ungrateful humans she is obligated to inspire. When the internal ranting of her latest charge pushes her past reason, she disregards the rules and forces her own words through his fingers, and is instantly entrapped in mortal form. With no magic, no identity, and no resources, Allie has no alternative but to navigate the mortal realm, depending entirely on her reluctant host while discerning what exactly caused her transformation - and how to reverse it.

Brett doesn't have a chance to consider the words that mysteriously showed up on his screen; he's too distracted by the stunning woman who appeared in his office out of nowhere. Before his brain can catch up, Brett's uninvited guest becomes enmeshed in his everyday life. Her artless innocence gradually lessens his suspicions. Most importantly, the writer's block that's been plaguing him dissolves under the fantasies the naively beguiling Alexandra inspires.

All too soon, the forced proximity sparks a confounding awareness neither writer nor muse are able to resist.

An interesting concept of a muse coming to life. I loved how her life as a muse continued even though she wasn't in the mystical world anymore. It was interesting to see the characters connect the dots as the book went on. A well done story.

This was a well-written, entertaining book. Alexandra is a muse who exists in an alternate realm. Brett is a writer who is experiencing writer's block. She finds herself trapped in the mortal world living as a human, with no resources and no idea how to get back to her own realm. Brett doesn't understand how the gorgeous woman appears in his life, but he is loving have her there and his writer's block is gone too! Alexandra is able to get to know Brett in a way she has not been able to do before. This story was fun and interesting. It held my attention from beginning to end. I look forward to reading more of this author's work. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book I received from the author.

Alexandria/Allie has been a muse for hundreds of years. Brett has writers block and has a deadline to meet and not on idea in his mind. Brett’s muse must have left him hanging if there really were such a thing. which Brett didn’t believe or why wasn’t he more successful ? Allie got angry at Brett for his way of thinking for in all the hundreds of years she had helped creative people not one human has ever been thankful. She lashes out at her ungrateful charge and forces him to write a poem which is against the rules . She then realized she is no longer faerie but human. Allie was stunned , sure she had fought the system some but she had never in her wildest dream planed on leaving it . Brett thought Allie had broke into his house once he realized she was even there. He was tempted to call the cops but didn’t as for some reason he had a strong urge to protect Allie. I really loved this story. It was a little slow going at first but after I got into the story I didn’t want to put it down. Just a very sweet and enjoyable read. I really liked how Brett and Allie were attracted to each other but Brett went slow as they built a relationship as Allie was so innocent about everything. The characters were also really good I like the ins and outs Allie and Brett went through also. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

The lovely cover portrays the sweet, loving romance inside. Adult, yet sweet and naive. The sex is more about the romance than the physical act. Mortal Musings is told from two perspectives, those of Brett, the writer and his muse, Andie. Brett had writers block. Had his muse deserted him, if there was such a thing? Silly humans. Didn't they had understand that they had to come up with the ideas, then the muse can help develop them. As he typed the words, she appeared. I love the storyline. It sounds like so much fun. She is now mortal, no longer faerie. What will become of her? Can she go back? She had bucked the system, but never planned to leave it. The flavor of Mortal Musings reminded me of Splash, learning to do all the simple things of being human that we take for granted. Her first taste of human food, learning about financial means. She had to learn about clothes, instead of clouds, of showers instead of fae lakes, where her hair floated and dried in a flash. The details and description of simple things seen in a different light. The sweet gesture of Brett zipping up her for she doesn't know what a zipper is. The Dream Weaver, Rizen, had he been sent to help her? Andie had cast a spell and Rizen told her to search for the loophole. The slow sweet, innocent and tentative moves toward closeness is so romantic, captivating and sensual. I love the slow pace as their relationship develops, even though it has only been days. Nothing is rushed or hurried. After all, this isn't insta love. They have know each other for a long time. Brett is sweet and chivalrous. Allie has an other-world aura, that the people around her seem to sense without realizing it. I am so curious how this will end. I know what I want to happen. I have not read a story like this before and I was swept away with her innocence and naivety.To watch her grow and develop in a human world was fun and sad at the same time. What man wouldn't want a woman who would rather be naked the clothed? Mortal Musings brought to mind the movie, Splash, where even the simplest thing is new - how to plug a bathtub, take a shower, dry off with a towel. Her wet hair stuck against her back, instead of being instantly dry in the faerie world, clothes on, clothes off at a snap or quicker. Because of watching Splash, Mortal Musings was easy to follow and picture the scenes when she is learning something new and I loved that. It is so hard to describe the details without spoiling it for you and I want you to have the enjoyment of discovering it for yourself. I received an ARC of Mortal Musings by Aria Glazki in return for an honest and unbiased review.
