Blurb: Rawley isn’t the type to crush hard and fast on anyone, but he’s somehow helpless when it comes to the new mailman. Even his bikes and his job as enforcer for a local motorcycle gang, the center of his world, don’t compare to his interest in Reign. Unfortunately, Reign doesn’t seem to be as interested—but secrets and magic have a way of turning everything upside down.


Review:  Rawley has things to do and he just wants to sleep so he can wake up to do them. Rawley is, understandably, less than pleased when he’s awakened early by someone at the door. It’s the mailman. Ugh. Well, okay, it’s a very sexy mailman with big blue eyes, but it’s the mailman. Rawley gets more sleep and is able to start his day. One of the members of his club tries to get some repair work on his bike without paying Rawley for the work. As it turns out the guy is also not paying his girlfriend for food. Rawley keeps his bike as collateral. Of course the guy tries to get his bike back. However, the sexy green eyed mailman puts a stop to that. But… didn’t he have blue eyes? And didn’t his name tag say Reign but it now says Leif? Are there two sexy mailmen? Rawley and Leif go on a lunch date. Rawley really likes Leif. Leif is also Reign. He’s also a couple of other people. It’s complicated. When Rawley is next woken up by Leif to help save a puppy he begins to really understand Leif, Reign, Ashe, and Skye. Unfortunately, Rawley isn’t the only person interested in Leif, Reign, Ashe, and Skye. Add to it Ashe isn’t really all that personable, but Rawley isn’t letting anyone touch his mailman.

This book is about magic not mental health. Leif, Reign, Ashe, and Skye are separate beings housed in one body, they are not personalities. I appreciate multiple personality disorder is touched upon in this book and is rightfully called a serious condition, as that’s what it is. However, this book isn’t about health, it’s about magic and elemental sprites living in people. Now, having said that, Rawley really finds himself enchanted by a couple of the sprites in his mailman, one of them not so much. Ashe makes sense and Rawley can see that. Ashe is wary. The personalities Rawley encounters could have easily overwhelmed the story but they didn’t. In spite of the very startling information about the mailman, there is a plot. The plot is about the mailman, but other stuff happens, too. The book was well balanced, charming, and sweet. It’s a great afternoon read.
