Dangerous intrigue, forbidden passion, and ominous magic. And that’s just on my first day.

As the newest recruit at the Institute of Unpredictable Magic, I’m determined to prove I have what it takes to be part of this elite team of supernaturals who protect the magical community. But I didn’t count on sparks flying between me and my new partner, Logan, the sex-on-a-stick mage who’s as competitive as I am.

I also didn’t count on our first assignment together turning into an absolute disaster.

Now we’re in a race against the clock to uncover the whereabouts of a potentially dangerous magic user with powers no one’s ever seen before. The only two people who can help us are Nick, a millionaire playboy whose easy charm throws me completely off-balance, and Saint, a darkly handsome convict with a mysterious past.

I thought developing feelings for one of my co-workers was bad, but as the four of us are forced to rely on each other, I can’t deny that I’m drawn to Nick and Saint too.

And as the danger of our mission grows, I realize I’m about to be in way over my head—in more ways than one.

You know how they say trouble always comes in threes?

Well, I think I know exactly who my three are.

Shadow is the first book in the Institute of Unpredictable Magic series, a medium-burn reverse harem story featuring a nerdy, feisty woman and the three sexy men who fall in love with her.

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Sadie Moss!

Shadow is the first book in the Institute of Unpredictable Magic series and tells the story of Raelyn. The Institute of Unpredictable Magic is a spin-off series set in the world of the Academy of Unpredictable Magic series. 

I really loved the Academy of Unpredictable Magic series by Sadie Moss and after reading the synopsis, I was so excited to read this book! Shadow was such a good first book, and I cannot wait to read the other books in the series. I really liked getting to know Raelyn and her men, and the story in general was really good and fast paced.

I really liked Raelyn as a character because she’s really determined to be the best and she puts all her effort into things. I also think it’s cute that she doesn’t notice that she gets attention from others. As for the men, I really liked all of them. I liked Logan from the moment we read about him because I kept on smiling while reading about Rae and him. I also really like Nick because he reminds me of my boyfriend. My boyfriend’s name is also Nick and he has dark hair and brown eyes too. Saint is an interesting character, and I cannot wait to read more about him in the second book.

I’m kinda angry at my kindle because I remember annotating and highlighting a few things and I lost all of my notes. I wanted to say a few more specific things about this book but I can’t… Oh well.
Shadow was such a good book, and it was hard to put this one down. I also really liked reading a bit about Elliot and her men again, I miss them so much! I really recommend Shadow (and the Academy of Unpredictable Magic series) and I’m looking forward to reading Fury, the second book in the Institute of Unpredictable Magic series.
