Beholden by Kris T. Bethke 3*
BLURB: Julian Thomas made the unpopular decision to become Beholden and focus his magic only on scrying. Because of it, he's the best at his job and the top scryer for the Department of Extranormal and Magical Affairs. Which why Investigations Agent Wes Caldwell goes right to Julian for help locating a missing person.
When Wes needs to use his magic to boost Julian's, they find a magical resonance between them that quickly leads to more. Julian doesn't want to move too fast, but Wes knows Julian is it for him. He's fine with waiting, as long as Julian stays close as they work through it.
But then Julian falls ill, and it's clear there's a magical reason. Wes will stop at nothing to find out what's plaguing Julian, and when they realize just how deep the plot goes, they have more questions than answers. Magic is increasing in the world, and no one can figure out why. Julian and Wes have found love, but will it be enough to get them through what's to come
My Review: I received a copy from Signal Boost Promotions in exchange for an honest review. I liked this one. It was a fast paced read, but it didn't skimp at all in either the world building or the portrayal of any of the Characters. If you like magic and intrigue and want them both in an m/m romance then you won't go wrong in buying this one. It has them all. I hope there will be more books from this universe for me to find and read.
