Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Seventeen years after Johnathon Parker murdered her mother, hybrid witch, Emmalyn Evans, gets sick of her father’s overprotective, distant ways, so she runs away in search of adventures with her aunt and uncle. Along the way, she meets charming, handsome, dark warlock, Nik Baker who has a troubled past and harbors dark secrets. Together they embark on an adventure of their own and soon become close. But with Emmalyn’s homicidal grandfather and overprotective father on their tail, and Nik’s many secrets hanging over them, how can they enjoy their great adventure? And will Emmalyn make it back to her father in one piece, or is history doomed to repeat itself?

Hurry Home features an original mix of paranormal elements, solid writing and an enigmatic main character. Emmalyn Evans, aforementioned main character, grows tired of her father being overprotective over her, so she runs away, in search of adventure. Unfortunately, the world outside has more dangers than Emmalyn accounted for. When she meets Nik, a warlock with his own share of dark secrets, she feels an instant pull toward him. But with someone out to murder her, and with her father trying to track her down and bring her back home, going on an adventure is anything but easy.

Emmalyn is an enigmatic heroine. Her struggle for freedom felt very real, and she acted like you’d expected from any young adult. She was stubborn, determined, intelligent, and just a bit naive, which you expected from teenagers. Her thoughts of how her adventure would look like were very different from how things turned out to be, as can be expected.

Nik was awesome. He was mysterious from the start, charming, in that bad boy kind of way. He hid plenty of secrets, which made him more intriguing. Nik and Emmalyn had a lot of chemistry between them.

This was an intriguing and enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more books by these authors.
