REVIEW: Wicked Sense (Singularity #1) by Fabio Bueno

Witches inhabit our world, organized in covens and hiding behind a shroud of secrecy—the Veil.

Skye’s London coven sends her to Seattle’s Greenwood High to find the Singularity, an unusually gifted witch who may break the Veil and trigger a dangerous new era of witch-hunting. Things get complicated when Skye meets a charming new classmate, Drake. Skye’s job becomes even trickier when she clashes with Jane, an intimidating rival witch.

Drake falls for the mysterious Skye, but odd accidents, potion mix-ups, and the occasional brush with death kind of get in the way of romance. Once he discovers Skye is a witch, he goes to war for her, even though his only weapons are a nice set of abs and a sharp sense of humor.

Fighting off wicked Jane and the other dark forces hell-bent on seizing the Singularity's immense power, Skye and Drake will risk everything to save the covens.

Going on a date has never been harder.

My Thoughts:
There is no other way to start this review than saying what an incredibly awesome book this is!!! I loved every minute I spent reading Wicked Sense!! And it's a given that I will be reading anything else that Fabio Bueno writes!!

Skye who hails from London is a witch with a unique gift and has been sent to Seattle’s Greenwood High to find the Singularity who is a witch whose powers will be like nothing seen before. She will be the most powerful witch to date. While at school Skye meets Drake and whilst he's pretty smitten it takes Skye a little bit longer to fall for Drake's charms. But things sure don't go smoothly for the two of them. There is an ex boyfriend, an ex girlfriend, rogue witches and a number of other hurdles for them to overcome. But I loved the way their romance built. Drake is just one big ball of sweetness. But as the romance progresses we really get to see his swoonworthy side. And I can pretty well picture those abs very clearly in my head!! Thank you Fabio for that scene!!.... Skye starts out as fairly tough, but with a bit of vulnerability thrown in but by the end of the book she becomes a fantastically strong character. Another one of the characters that I really loved was Priscilla. Her tell it like it is attitude was so refreshing. And she proved to be fantastic friend material.

Wicked Sense is written and told from both Skye and Drake's point of view. And as you all know, the male point of view is my absolute all time favourite, so the author gets huge bonus points for that!! I love to get that insight into what the male is thinking, what appeals to them and makes them tick. Heck, I can't figure them out in real life so I at least like to have some idea in the books that I read!!

I loved how the author took the time to describe the magic and spells to us. It really made that whole witchy side of things come to life. And one particular scene that I have to mention is when Drake's friend Boulder drinks the truth potion. That was hilarious!!

All in all Wicked Sense is a fantastically written paranormal romance!!  And I'm definitely impatient to read more!!

4.5 Stars!!
