If you are looking for an urban fantasy series that has humor, lovable heroes and heroines, and smoking hot chemistry then this series is for you. The relationship between Luke and Rio is intense, fun and real. I enjoy comedy thrown in with a good urban fantasy read and Ms. Day delivers. Just because there is humor does not mean there is no action. Ms. Day does an excellent job of separating the two. She really is a skilled author.
Rio is fun and can take care of herself. But when she witnesses a kidnapping she knows there is one person who can keep her safe. That is Luke, a wizard. Like a good UF book there are all kinds of paranormal's from Fae's to demons. If you are looking for a good fast paced and funny UF series to start, then I suggest The Cursed by Alyssa Day. It will leave you wanting more from this interesting world, just like it did me!
Rio Jones is a bicycle messenger. She’s just like everyone else, but with some powerful friends. One night she witnesses a kidnapping and she turns to Luke Oliver. He is someone all of Bordertown fears and respects. He also just so happens to be a wizard. Together they search for the missing girl all the while fighting an attraction. They tried to ignore it but it can no longer be denied! When Rio discovers things about her birth, Luke will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
