What's a girl to do when meeting The One means she's cursed to die a horrible death?
Life hasn't been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Connor, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she's irresistibly drawn to— Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.
But even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can't stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps go out wherever she walks, and Emma's been having the oddest dreams: visions of herself in past lives— visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else.

Not exactly very paranormal-ish

Hell yeah, can I be Emma just for a quick second. Brendan is a dreamy oozing hot fic character. I wish he'll lay thosee emerald green eyes on me too (swoosh)

Spell bound wasn't actually really the paranormal novella I'm rooting to read yet it gave me those tingling feeling all over my stomach because of the romance that revolved around the story. The story is more of How To Survive Your High School Days. Come on, all these rumors, bitchy schoolmates with rotten attitude, gothicwitchlab partners, gay friend, good gerl fran and a hotty boyfriend slash soulmate

Basically, the main thing here is forbidden love. Yada yada, all these family curse, this 'your life is in danger', you are a witch, you have powers......Yup yup.. Forbidden Love.

Brendan was hot period
Emma was a cool chic
Angelie, Jenn and Cisco were the 'i always got your back' friends
Ash, Christine were the cool and loving family members (remaining)

Over all, it fascinated me somehow. But I wish for more paranormalcy in the other next books. It was fast read and Brendan will make your mind twirl in 360 degree. That I bet. *smirk*
