Gray returned from the dead, took on a duplicate, and now faces her biggest adventure yet.
Barcelona. Summer escape. Or so Graylee Perez thought until her old adversary, Adrian Montez, brings his magic show to Spain.
Gray seeks out a Spanish wizard to help banish Adrian from her life once and for all. Instead, she tumbles headfirst into a love spell with the arrogant warlock.
After Gray follows Adrian to Paris, she must face her true feelings and decide if Adrian’s worth fighting for.
In book 2, we were introduced to the duplicate Graylee Perez, and even though I didn't care for her too much because I felt she was stuck in the past, I'm glad to see her find her place and happiness in this final installment :) I felt like the original 'Lee' got her happy ending with Raj. So it was only right for Gray to find hers. This final installment in the Spellbound Trilogy was just as fast paced and entertaining as the other installments. But I am so sad to see this trilogy end, but all in all, it left me satisfied with no unanswered questions!
Gray has decided to venture off on her own in the country Spain, which is awesome by the way. I wish I could just hop a flight to the country of my choosing! In the beginning, Gray seemed a bit lost and confused about herself and still has a vengeance for getting back at Adrian. There in Spain, she meets a couple of friends and runs into, none other than, Adrian himself at a magic show her friends decide to surprise her with. Let's just say she was not too happy about that! But somehow, she's put under a love spell to Adrian and she has no clue of who could have done it. What I liked about the love spell, was that Gray was still herself. The spell didn't have her mind gone. She could still think for herself and could still see how horrible Adrian could be at times.
But the thing is, I liked Adrian. In book 2, we got to see another side of him as well as in this installment. There was something about Adrian that stuck out to me. Yes, he was 'the bad guy' in the previous books, but underneath all that vengeance he likes to serve, is a good guy! Cliche, yes, but I loved it! There was really an awesome connection between Adrian and Gray. Both had multiple things in common and they both didn't really have a place among their people, so it was bound to happen. I really enjoyed the romance between the two :)
And I also like that we run into Charlene again, even though I didn't like her. But we didn't get to see her in book two, so it was nice to know what happened to her. But I did feel like sometimes, the story moved a bit too fast. Somethings weren't described enough and somethings were described TOO much for me. There kind of wasn't a balance in that sense. But overall, I thought the book was great and entertaining. And I was glad to be reconnected with the characters. There was some great action packed moments along with some awesome romance! I will definitely miss these book.

Gray walked up to the door of Adrian’s apartment and knocked. While she waited, she gathered all of her hair into one hand and pulled it back gently.
The moment he opened the door, Adrian’s eyes bored into hers.
Suddenly she felt shy, which had to be the spell.
Adrian looked more surprised than mystified. “You came back.”
Gray looked over Adrian’s shoulder. “May I come in?”
One corner of Adrian’s lips lifted higher than the other when he smiled and shook his head. “You know you’re going to regret this, right?”
He leaned against the doorframe. “Living for the moment?”
“Are you going to let me in or what?”
“You know I am.”
Gray pushed past him. “Who’s the one under the spell?”
Adrian closed the door then looked her up and down. “I’m beginning to wonder if you’re really under a spell.”
Gray laughed. “Not exactly the simpering school girl you were hoping for?”
“You were never a simpering school girl, Gray. I still remember the day you walked into my shop. You have an interesting way of expressing your love is all.”
“Yeah, well sometimes we hurt the ones we love. Serves you right, by the way. If I have to suffer through this damned spell, more like a curse, then you should too.”
Adrian cracked a smile. “Loving me is torture, is it?”
“You can’t even begin to imagine.”
Note From Author: This is the same model from the Spellbound covers. She reminds me of a grownup version of Gray going off into the world on her own and perhaps even finding love.
