Dear Thomas,I know you’re angry. It’s true, I was sent to expose your mentor as a fraud illusionist, and instead I have put your secret in jeopardy. I fear I have even put your life in jeopardy. For that I can only beg your forgiveness. I’ve fallen for you. You know I have. And I never wanted to create a rift between us, but if it means protecting you from those who wish you dead—I’ll do it. I’ll do anything to keep you safe, whatever the sacrifice. Please forgive me for all I’ve done and what I’m about to do next. I promise, it’s one magic trick no one will ever see coming.

Review of Illusions

Review (4.5 Stars):  Illusions is an entertaining story that kept me on the edge of my seat.  Thomas has a “gift” that bonds him to a magician in hopes of keeping his secret safe.  Saverio was sent to learn the secret to Thomas’ extremely popular magic trick and these two characters fall for one another.  I loved the chemistry between these two characters and you could tell that their bond was something that they were willing to fight for.  Ms. Reynolds created a magical literary world that you will absolutely get lost in and I couldn’t get enough of this well-written story.  Illusions is a tale that shouldn’t be missed and I loved every minute of it.
