Familiar Love: Book Two

For over a century, Edward Youngblood has been the logical one in a family of temperamental magical beings. But reason has not made him immune to passion, and Edward’s passion for Mullins, the family’s demon instructor, has only grown.

Mullins was lured into hell through desperation—and a fatal mistake. He’s done his best to hang onto his soul in the twisted realm of the underworld, and serving the Youngblood family when summoned has been his only joy. Edward concocts a plan to spring Mullins by collecting a series of items to perform an ancient ritual—an idea that terrifies Mullins. He can’t bear the thought of losing Edward and his brothers to a dangerous quest.

But every item in their collection is an adventure in brotherhood and magic, and as Mullins watches from the sidelines, he becomes more and more hopeful that they will succeed. When the time comes for Mullins to join the mission, can he find enough faith and hope to redeem himself and allow himself happiness in the arms of a man who would literally go to hell and back—and beyond—to have Mullins by his side?

Book two in the series and it was magical.

This time, Edward is risking it all, with the help of his brothers, to bring his beloved, Mullins, back from hell. He was sent there 400 years ago after making a deal to save his sister.

I was surprised at how funny this was at times. All of the brothers running around in a minivan. Three of them turning into cats, one into a dog. Hoping Mullins will make it more even when he’s turned.

I loved how Amy Lane can write a story and can go from funny to witty to super romantic to hell fire. I love how she can be so descriptive, yet not get overly wordy. I loved how much love and romance and sweetness was in this story. And magic.

It’s always fun to experience sweet exchanges between the MC’s in her stories, like this one:

“I’m not going to hell. Hell is without you.”

If you love Amy Lane and you love romance with a twist, you need to read this series. Another win!

Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after.
