CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE! Cal Toscani along with his fellow Sentinels have just saved the world and instead of taking a break, he puts in a full day in his restaurant since that pays the bills. Aching and just wishing for some pampering from his lover and mentor, Aubrey Fletcher, Cal ends up remembering that his mentor gave him a lesson in the midst of all the craziness of saving the world and now Aubrey wants Cal to figure the spell out immediately. No pampering or hot bath await Cal but he finds himself naked and eager to finish his lesson so he can enjoy the reward that Aubrey has planned, even as his lover does his damndest to keep him off centered.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS is a short story that gives the reader a glimpse into the Sentinels, Cal and Aubrey’s life outside of saving the world and all that it entails. I do suggest reading A HIDDEN MAGIC first in order to understand what is going on with Cal and Aubrey as they mention things that happened in the first story here. I highly enjoyed the interaction between Cal and Aubrey and I do recommend grabbing some ice or your significant other so you can cool down afterwards. Tight writing, intriguing characters, magic and more are within the pages of UNFINISHED BUSINESS. I love the world this author created from the first book and it continues in this short spin off set around two of the Sentinels, Cal and Aubrey. Cal is an apprentice mage and his lover is also his mentor as well as a master mage. Both characters had a connection you felt in A HIDDEN MAGIC and I loved this glimpse into their life outside the Sentinels. It made them a bit more real and I would have loved to mosey down to Cal’s restaurant for lunch sometime. Ms. Bendetti is a talented author who creates some magical stories to enjoy. If you are looking for a new author to try, then I suggest you check out any one of her books.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
