Reviewed: Third Time's a Charm by Marquita Valentine...

Third Time's a Charm (Holland Springs, #2)
Not even Holland Springs' Most Notorious Resident can stop this Love Spell.
Customers come to Rose Holland’s apothecary shop for three things: to hear her uncanny matchmaking advice, to buy the “magical” hair and skin products she sells, and to accuse her of trying to steal their men. For years Rose has been entirely innocent and almost content with that status quo. But that was before sexy, smooth-talking Sasha Romanov came to town and made her want to use her love potions on him… until he broke her heart. Now corrupt town officials want to seize her land and sell it to an industrial giant, and her only hope for help looks like the one man she can’t trust—or stop herself from falling under his spell. 
Alexander “Sasha” Romanov seems like every woman’s dream: charming, handsome and fabulously rich. But while the people of Holland Springs think he’s in town to generously invest in their economy (and possibly one of their daughters), Sasha struggles to save his sick mother from his vicious uncle’s plans by doing everything the greedy businessman wants. And Vlad Romanov wants Rose Holland’s land—at any cost. 
Despite Sasha’s vow to get the job done and keep his hands (and everything else!) off Rose, the blue-eyed witch enchants him. But his mother’s life remains in the balance. Sasha must find a way to protect his mother, sabotage his uncle’s plans, and win the woman who’s captured his heart without destroying everything she loves.

This is the second book that I have read from Marquita Valentine. She definitely knows how to open her stories with a bang!! Twice Tempted's opening line was "The first thing you need to do in Vegas is get laid." and Third Time's a Charm opens with the heroine discovering the heroe's badly beaten body in a field along side the road!! Both are definitely attention grabbing!!! LOL I absolutely loved Twice Tempted and couldn't wait to read Sasha's book. Third Time's a Charm was a little sadder then I thought it was going to be, but it was still a great read. 
I had a love~hate relationship with Sasha through out most of the book. He would have some really great moments, especially with Ivy, and then he would ruin it. LOL  In the end he definitely redeemed himself~loved the epilogue!!! I can't wait to see what Marquita has in store for the rest of the series. I am loving it so far. I'm totally routing for Sebastian to get his own book!!! ;)
Third Time's a Charm is another winner for Marquita and a great addition to the series. 
5 out of 5 rating.
