off to the side, like I’m an offending bit of debris that must be tossed back

This is the first book in the Sex Magic series and ends with an HEA. Morgan is just a regular college student with a ‘ho hum’ love life. She accidentally finds a magical all-boys school in the woods and feel compelled to it and to the one boy she meets, Edric. Edric, along with all the boys at the school, have to take a vow of celibacy, so he ends up fighting his attraction to Morgan.
>I realize that Morgan is attracted to Edric by fate and magic, but she is so aggressive, sexually, that she is embarrassing. Edric has the same fate and magic attracting him to Morgan, yet he doesn’t act like a dog humping anything around. When Edric gets protective towards Morgan and horny when he can’t see her, there is a little bit of romance. Morgan’s behavior is anything but romantic.
>Once Morgan gets into the school, seeing her excited about learning and trying to fit in is really fun. How her magic shows up in small instances, like the way she can see a scene of peoples’ emotions on their faces or can remember whatever is taught, like in a slide show is really cool. The way the boys try to haze her is a little over the top, but I guess some hazing could be dangerous. The ending seemed a little abrupt. I wanted a scene with Morgan’s parents as she explained about the magic and her relationship with Edric. I liked how the archaic school was described. Not having electricity made a strange situation even stranger, for Morgan.
>The descriptions in this book were very good. How the wind and rain felt on Morgan’s body, how the magical burn felt on Morgan’s leg, were both described in a way I could feel everything as well. I wish the relationship element between Edric and Morgan didn’t start out so seedy, but the story was entertaining.
