The Enchanted One by Lora Deeprose

**I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review**

4/5 Stars

Synopsis per Goodreads:
She wanted to live a normal life.

He wanted to end it.

Orphaned at birth and raised in a cloistered convent, Lizzie Chambers knows nothing of her parentage; even her name comes from the pages of a book. When she is forced to leave the convent, she soon finds out life is nothing like her cherished Austen novels. Trapped in an unhappy marriage and questioning her own sanity, her only solace is her beloved flower shop, Enchanted Garden.

When her husband is killed and her store burns down, both under suspicious circumstances, Lizzie finds herself fleeing a demon she has no clue how to stop or even why it has targeted her in the first place.

But Gideon York knows. As a member of the Order of the Triple Goddess he is charged with protecting Lizzie and others like her from the dark forces seeking to destroy these rare and powerful women.

When their growing attraction tempts Gideon to break his sacred vow and Lizzie's own powers threaten her new found family in the Order, she can no longer deny her destiny. To protect the people she loves, Lizzie must find the courage to face the demon alone and risk the ultimate sacrifice…her life.

My thoughts on this book:

I was pretty hooked on this book right from the start.  It draws you in pretty quickly.  It's about a plain woman who was involved in a abusive relationship, to a deadbeat lazy bones.  She owned a flower shop, and that was pretty much her life.  Until one day her husband dies.

This book kinda frusterated me, I just wanted to slap Lizzie so many times.  I wanted to slap her husband, I wanted to slap her friend, I wanted to slap Gideon.  The only person I didn't want to slap was Gideons mom.

Even though I was annoyed with the characters like 93% of the time, I still enjoyed this book, full of magic and mystery.  The book never answered who was behind the dark feelings, who the "bad guy" is, so we've got to wait for the next few books to find out whats going to happen.  I enjoyed seeing the evolution and maturity of Lizzie, took her long enough but the end I respected her, I never like characters that are wimpy and afraid of their feelings and choices.  

Looking forward to book number 2!
