Fantasy Friday with Amara Lynn and Rae D. Magdon

Flowers for Fara by Amara Lynn

Hallie is anxious, awkward, and has a bad unrequited crush on another girl in her class, Fara.

When summer break begins and she no longer sees Fara in class anymore, Hallie is melancholy. But a chance encounter or two later, Fara is befriending Hallie, and dare Hallie think, has romantic feelings for her, too.

Summer turns to fall and all Hallie wants is to bring the flowers back so she can see Fara smile.

Follow Hallie and Fara through the seasons of awkward friendship, first love, and a little bit of magic in the second volume of Yverwood Witches.

Flowers For Fara is an 8100 word low stakes contemporary fantasy, sapphic romance novelette, and is the second in Amara Lynn’s Yverwood Witches series, but can be read and enjoyed on its own.

My thoughts

Flowers for Fara is a sweet clean young adult romance. I thought for a hot minute it was going to be like the Gift of the Magi, but instead it is just too sweet.

Hallie is so awkward in her crush it is beyond cute. Flowers is told only in Hallie’s voice so we have no clue how Fara feels until Fara says how she feels. Until this moment, we are just as awkward as Hallie is in trying to not cross the line with a new friend. Crushes are so painful and sweet at the same time.

Amara Lynn brings diversity to this short story. I think what I like best is that a girl with glasses gets her happy ending (from a person who has always worn glasses). Flowers for Fara is a quick read to infuse you with happiness and love.

I received a free copy of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.

Fur and Fangs by Rae D. Magdon

First of a series of Fur and Fangs’ novelettes. Moving to big, bustling New York City from rural Georgia is already exciting enough for country wolf Riley Evans, but it becomes downright exhilarating when she spots a beautiful woman in a yellow dress on her morning commute. The only problem is, she has no idea what to say to city girls…especially one that happens to be a vampire.

My thoughts

Rae D. Magdon packs a lot of sizzle in this short story. I have to admit that I was not expecting so much sizzle in a quirky romance. Riley is new to the city and loves to watch people. Then all of sudden she is the one being watched back and it is so much fun. 

I love the body positivity and styling of Isabeau. I want to dress like her. She is the opposite of Riley and it is beyond cute when they are together.

Fur and Fangs is a quick down and dirty beginning to Riley and Isabeau and I already want more.
