Description from the publisher:
Valentine’s Day.

And Emma's 21st birthday.

Just another college day full of classes and more homework than is humanly possible.

…until Jason, her best-friend-since-kindergarten, shows up to take her out for the day.

Like old times: the two of them on a wacky adventure, playing hooky from real life. With his lopsided grin and tickets to a circus full of misfits and monsters, he introduces her to a whole new world—one full of magic and mystery—and turns her reality upside down.

Except nothing goes as planned, and they end up running through the city to find a missing siren before someone brews a love potion with her blood.

Sirens and love potions, witches and elves, and Valentine kisses. Nothing will be the same for Emma again.


 (included with permission from the author)
I grin down at her.  When we were kids, she explained the birds and the bees to me, but I insisted I washed up on the ocean beach.  Emma never believed me.
When I got older, I learned we were both right.
Jason always plans an unique outing for Emma’s birthday, but this year, her 21st birthday, is going to top them all.  This year, he is finally going to let her in on the secret of who he is - sort of.  In the middle of a national park, they enter a circus of rare creatures, including a naga, a chimera, elves, and unicorns.  Before the show can begin, their trip to the circus because a fast-paced run in search of a siren and the human who has kidnapped her.

This is a short-story; therefore a quick read, but so worth the hour.  While considered to be a NA book because of the ages of the main characters, this is not a sex-fest and is entirely appropriate for teens to read.

This is the first book I have read from Ms. Webb and I absolutely loved it.  I will be picking up some more of her offerings, while stalking… no… umm.. pestering… ummm no…… oh I have it, I will be encouraging her to release the next in this series!
