Read Some Kind of Magic Online Free - "An amazing first novel." —Sydney Landon, New York Times bestselling author
In this sparkling debut novel, Mary Ann Marlowe introduces a hapless scientist who's swept off her feet by a rock star—but is it love or just a chemical reaction?...
Biochemist Eden Sinclair has no idea that the scent she spritzed on herself before leaving the lab is designed to enhance pheromones. Or that the cute, grungy-looking guy she meets at a gig that evening is Adam Copeland. As in the Adam Copeland international rock god and object of lust for a million women. Make that a million and one. By the time she learns the truth, she s already spent the (amazing, incredible) night in his bed
Suddenly Eden, who's more accustomed to being set up on disastrous dates by her mom, is going out with a gorgeous celebrity who loves how down-to-earth and honest she is. But for once, Eden isn't being honest. She can't bear to reveal that this overpowering attraction could be nothing more than seduction by science. And the only way to know how Adam truly feels is to ditch the perfume—and risk being ditched in turn
Smart, witty, and sexy, Some Kind of Magic is an irresistibly engaging look at modern relationships why we fall, how we connect, and the courage it takes to trust in something as mysterious and unpredictable as love.
"Frisky, Flirty Fun!" —Stephanie Evanovich, New York Times bestselling author of The Total Package
"Sexy, engaging and original. I completely fell in love with Eden and Adam." —Sydney Landon, New York Times bestselling author"
Twenty-eight-year-old Eden Sinclair is a biochemist at a company that creates erectile dysfunction drugs. She spends her days analyzing mice sperm while considering grad school. Eden is single--and tired of being set up by her mother--but dating is the last thing on her mind, especially given her strict criteria. Meanwhile, her brother, Micah, is making a name for himself with his band, headlining at a local club. Eden, with a (secret) panache for singing, sometimes backs him up onstage; otherwise, she runs the merchandise table. One night, she finds herself insanely attracted to a grungy, skinny guy named Adam. They end up having hot sex in his house--very un-Eden-like. What Eden forgot to mention is that before she left work that day, she spritzed herself with a pheromone-enhancing perfume that her coworker was developing. What Adam forgot to mention was that he is actually Adam Copeland, international rock god. What evolves is a whirlwind romance, fueled by love, betrayal, lies, and enough gossip and paparazzi to make even the most famous of celebrities think twice. Marlowe makes a name for herself in this hilarious and sexy debut, the first in a planned series. It's filled with frisky sex scenes set to the backdrop of rock music, and Marlowe makes the chemistry scientific and literal in this fun read.

This fun, romantic and sexy novel explores the instant connection that manifests between two people and what happens next. The chemistry between Adam and Eden is instant and electric, and watching them bring out the best in each other gives the story warmth along with the heat. While some aspects of the plot seem a bit far-fetched, and while there are moments when readers may be tempted to knock some sense into one or both of the protagonists, overall this love story will make readers smile!

I love the idea of a rock star love story and since we have friends in a band, I'm always curious to see how touring is portrayed.
I really liked Eden. She smart and doesn't hide it. I loved her devotion to Micah and her desire to play music coupled with the fear of it felt realistic. As for Adam,...

I always hate to give negative reviews to newbie authors, but I was really let down by Some Kind of Magic.
From the cover and description, I was expecting a fun chick-lit, contemporary romance cross-over. Some easy escapism and witty writing. From the glowing reviews, I was expecting something dif...

Not only is it sweet and sexy and fun, but Adam and Eden embody a rawness that makes them more real than fiction. He's a rock star we could all fal...

This book was so much fun to read. It's witty, sexy, full of heart, and lets you live out that "bang the rock star" fantasy you know you have but will claim otherwise even though you shouldn't. I wish all books made me feel the way Some Kind of Magic made me feel.

I had the great pleasure of reading this book pre-publication. Mary Ann Marlowe creates a magical debut full of heat and heart.

This is a magical book - this is witty, fun, and a bit steamy. It was such fun that I read it in one sitting.

My little hard rock fangirl heart fell so hard for this book. Love the music focus and the swoony romance. Such a fun read.

I'm more of a mystery girl than a romance reader but Some Kind of Magic makes me realize why people love romance novels so dang much. It's such a great book. I loved getting to spend time eavesdropping on Eden and Adam's whirlwind romance that may or may not be the result of a chemically enhanced...
