Title: Spell Weaver
Author: Megan Derr
Myka’s dream was to someday own his shop, making and spelling suits that were prized throughout the world. Instead, he rejected an apprenticeship with a master who proved to be reprehensible—and touchable—and lost everything. Now, he works in a derelict shop in the wrong part of town, and it’s only a matter of time before he’s caught spelling without a license or thrown out by his odious landlord.
The only bright part of his days are the occasional visits from his best client, Johan, a man who works in the palace and always brings the finest suits to have spelled. When he accidentally leaves behind an invitation to the royal ball, Myka takes it, determined to have one evening where he can enjoy himself—and perhaps even spend time with Johan as something other than a spell weaver.

Myka is a spell weaver, with a small shop on Ash Street and barely makes ends meet since he's not licensed and risks being thrown into jail, or being thrown out by his landlord, who wants to increase his rent. When his best customer, Johan, accidentally leaves his invite to a masquerade ball in the castle, Myka decides to go, with the hope that he'd see Johan there.
This was such a delightful take on Cinderella, with much more sexiness than the original. Myka and Johan were adorable and shy, but once they got together, they showed a naughtier side to their personalities. They had great chemistry and I just loved them both to bits.
All in all, it was a great read, sweet and hot, and with more plot that one would've imagined for a story so short. Very recommendable!
