Genre: Urban Fantasy
Age Category: Adult
Type of romance: MF
After battling witches, werewolves, and a crazy one-eyed rougarou with a vendetta, starting a business making magical charms should be easy.
At least, that’s what Morgen Keller thought.
But now she’s leased a haunted building, her cousin is dating the town’s scheming mayor, and Amar—AKA the handsome werewolf she’s been dating—is embroiled in what could be the final showdown between two rival werewolf packs.
If his pack doesn’t come out on top, she could lose her lover, her business partner, and the only guy willing to catch mice for her snooty owl familiar.
Why did Morgen ever think life in the small town of Bellrock would be simple?
Charmed and Dangerous is the fifth and so far last book in this series and I was sad to see it end after binge listening to this series over the course or the last two months. I really like the characters and the story. This book was a good wrap up for the series, although it leaves things open enough if the author ever would decide to write more, which she mentioned she might in the author note at the end of the book.
Charmed and Dangerous nicely builds upon plot lines from previous books. Morgan is working to start her new business with Amar and they run into troubles with the building they’re leasing as it turns out to be haunted. The Loop pack is not so happy with the Lobo’s and the tension is rising. Morgan’s brothers are concerned when they hear about her witchy ways. Amar and Morgan’s romance is going well, but they have another bit of conflict to overcome. So there is plenty going on. It all made for an engaging read and I was happy to see how it all got wrapped up. All the familiar characters from previous books are there again as well. This book was a satisfying conclusion to the series.
This book had a few plot points that weren’t my favorites, like the family drama and a small bit of conflict in the otherwise well going romance. And then there was the haunted building, after just reading two books with a haunted building recently I wasn’t as excited about another haunted building plot line. Although surprisingly all 3 of the books I read with haunted buildings got resolved very differently, so that was good.
I liked reading about Amar and Morgan starting their new business, especially the prologue was great in showing how their business is doing. I enjoyed seeing Amar and Morgan further their relationship and how they work together and feel like a solid couple in this book. I also liked how Shaun and Wendy made some appearances again as well as cousin Zoey and Morgan’s mentor Phoebe. I enjoyed listening to this one and the narrator is just perfect for Lindsay Buroker’s books.
To summarize: This was a satisfying conclusion to the series and I was sad to see the series end. There are plenty of things going on in this book and some ongoing plot lines get wrapped up as well as a new plot for this book surrounding the building Morgan leased that turns out to be haunted. I liked reading more about the familiar characters and I liked seeing how Morgan and Amar’s relationship was going. There were a few plot points with the family drama as well as a bit of conflict in the romance I didn’t care for, but they didn’t ruin my overall enjoyment of the book too much. It also was the third book I read recently with a haunted building, but I liked how all of them had a different resolution to the problem. I really enjoyed listening to this series and can definitely recommend it if you’re looking for an easy to read urban fantasy series.
