Mel's Review of My Boyfriend Merlin by Priya Ardis

He was a little older than he was letting on. By a few eons...

In this modern Arthurian, 17 year-old Boston high schooler Arriane, aka Ryan, DuLac just found out the guy she's been crushing on, hot biker Matt, is a little older than he was letting on. In fact, he is really Merlin—the Merlin, King Arthur's Merlin, the greatest wizard who ever lived. Frozen in a cave for over fifteen hundred years, he's woken for a purpose. But Ryan's not impressed. Tired of being a relationship loser, she'd rather kick his legendary behind.

Sure, the world has been crazy ever since the sword and the stone fell out of the sky like a meteor. But despite gruesome gargoyles, a deadly new world of magic, and the guy driving her crazy, Ryan knows that family is everything. Will Merlin sacrifice hers to save the world? Will she be able to stop him?

Overall I really enjoyed this book. The beginning of the book felt a little rushed and I would have liked more time to understand the characters before all hell broke lose but within a few chapters everything fell into place and I was hooked through the end. This book was a refreshing change from the usual vampire and werewolf stories that seem to be everywhere now a days. It is a truly fun and unique twist on an old classic tale and I can't wait to see where it takes us next or what other legendary characters this series brings out to play. In my opinion definitely recommended.
