A Date to Impress Him, (The Magi Accounts #2.5) - Michele Notaro


A Date to Impress Him is another peek into the fantastic world of Michele Notaro's The Magi Accounts from Cosmo's POV. Taking Mads out for a date shouldn't be that hard, but their family/pride comes first, so Cosmo has to work extra hard to get some romantic alone time with Mads.

From the blurb:

Who knew taking my little mage on a date would be so difficult?

With so much change happening at the house—three shifter kids are a lot to handle—Mads and I have been too busy to spend much alone time together. So I figured a date night was in order.

Too bad every time we try, we have to put a fire out somewhere. At this rate, I’m not sure I’ll ever get to take my mage on a date.

A Date to Impress Him is a fun MM urban fantasy companion novella and meant to be read AFTER The Shackles That Hold Us (The Magi Accounts 2). It’s from Cosmo's perspective and takes place between books 2 and 3 of the main series. This is a companion novella, NOT a standalone.

SNik's Review:

Novella, #2.5 of series (The Magi Accounts), must be read in order. Quick read. Paranormal/urban fantasy with dystopian elements. Hurt/comfort. Found family. 

Another peek into Cosmo and Madeo’s life told from Cosmo’s sweet, loving and committed POV. On one hand this was a sweet read, Cosmo wanting to take Mads on a date but family life constantly interrupting as Cosmo and Mads care for their younger pride members. 

However, there is still the heavy weight of speciesism against shifters and magi, at work and out in public, and also with navigating having a mixed pride. 

Cosmo’s POV is always full of strength, determination, responsibility, and love for all his pride members and for the man who is his mate. 

I am super invested in this series and love all the characters, strong and damaged Mads, courageous Alpha Cosmo who is the floofiest floof that ever floofed, and all the separate members of the pride that embrace all of their family unequivocally. 4.5 rounded up.
