Elf Struck

Matched by Magic, #4

Elf Struck is the fourth book in the Matched by Magic series by Jenna Castille. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.

Takeshi is a Japanese Fox shifter. He has lived most of his life held captive and worked to help free other captives. Now that his mission is over Takeshi is at a loss at what to do with himself. Takeshi is a virgin who has no idea about what he wants but seems willing to explore, especially with Aindreas.

Aindreas is an elf who has a gentle heart, and is a caretaker. He is a switch, identifying himself as both a Dom and a Sub. He has not settled down but seems to bounce from one lover to another. He is attracted to both men and women. He has the ability to put people at ease. I loved that he was such a mix, he’s serious about some things and amusing about other things.

Aindreas and Takeshi are matched using a dating service, Divine Interventions. The connection between Takeshi and Aindreas is blistering. I loved how well they both were willing to give each other a chance. The sex scenes were scorching.

I found this book is very well written. Readers are in for a very different plot than you see in other books. The main and secondary characters were fascinating. This book kept me on my toes all the way through. Every time I thought I had the story figured out there was a twist. Overall, this was a terrific book.

Book Blurb for Elf Struck

When a BDSM slut is matched with a warrior virgin, both tempers and desires flare.

Kidnapped at the age of eleven and raised in his uncle’s court, kitsune Takeshi grew up surrounded by violence and defeat. It wasn’t safe to even consider a romantic relationship. Now he’s free to make a life for himself but Takeshi doesn’t have the first clue about love or desire. Thankfully, the Divine Intervention magical matching agency thinks they’ve found the perfect match for him.

Many things can be said about Aindreas. He’s flighty. He’s serious. He’s submissive. He’s dominant. He’s bisexual. He loves it all but he can’t seem to find the one person who can love him despite—or maybe for—all his contradictions. Divine Intervention may be his answer. Or maybe he’s just too much for a sane person to deal with.

A Romantica® male/male paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave. This story includes paranormal elements.
