Reluctant witch Mia is asked by her friend to whip up a healing potion for a customer. No happy being cornered into making the potion, Mia doesn't really pay close enough attention who she is really making the potion for.
To make matters worse her brother asks her to pick up his best friend and Mia's secret crush from the airport. To say the least she would rather not pick Ethan up, but can't say no to her brother.
Meanwhile she has decided she's not sure she wants to be with her current boyfriend, but decides she can break his heart during the holidays, so decides to keep her relationship going through the holidays.
Not that everything is going so great now, but it just seems to get worse and worse after picking Ethan up from the airport.
Ethan has been in love and lust with Mia since they were both younger, but being her brother's best friend he can't see things going forward in a relation between the two of them. He isn't exactly thrilled when Mia picks him up from the airport and less thrilled when he and Mia are attacked by a wolf in the airport parking lot.
Everything is about to change in soldier Ethan's well ordered life. Most importantly thought he needs to keep his hands off Mia, if he can.
I want to like this book in so many ways, but during the book there are a few unanswered questions. Also, I had no idea it was a serial and that while this ends with an apparent happy ending, it goes on with more stories about Mia and Ethan. I wanted to learn more about Ethan and find out if Mia's brother had any special reason why he sent Mia to the airport to pick up Ethan. It seemed there was more to the story but we never hear it.
Also it seems part of Mia's story of how she is a real witch, not just a Wicca, but does her family know or not? I may pick up the next book to see if some questions are answered or not.
