Beautifully Broken (Spellbound #1) by Sherry Soule

Beautifully Broken had everything I enjoy reading about, witches, wicca, ghosts, demons and creepy situations, so when I started it I had some great expectations.

The book starts very fast and puts us right in the middle of a fight between Shiloh and the shadows that haunt her, so that made me think that the whole book would follow in that direction. But instead I found it to be hot and cold, there were times that were great, creepy and full of action and then there were times truly boring.

In the beginning I liked Shiloh but the more I learned about her the more things started to bug me. She was hard to figure out. Being very mature at times and too immature at others, had me wondering who the real Shiloh was. Her history and background was fascinating though. Loved how Sherry Soule mixed everything together.

Then there was Trent. The first time we met him I adored him. He had all the great characteristics of a 'bad' boy and I love my bad boys. And he did live up to my expectations. But his relationship with Shiloh was what bothered me. Like the book they were hot and cold. I think I'd prefer it if nothing happened between them in the first book but instead the author build up the tensions between them and evolve that in the second book.

Besides the romance, the Wicca references and the creepy encounters of Shiloh with the dark side were delightful. If only there were no long, and boring, dialogs between them.

*I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
