Publisher's Summary

I survived my first semester at the Academy of Unpredictable Magic. Apparently, the universe took that as a challenge....
 

For years, Unpredictables have been brushed aside by the rest of the magical community. Now, people are starting to pay attention - and I’m not entirely sure that’s a good thing.
 

I’ve always been content to fly under the radar, but now that we’ve been invited to participate in the inter-academy trials, the entire school will be in the spotlight.
 

As if trying to sort out my feelings for the four insanely gorgeous men who all want to date me wasn’t enough, now I’m juggling magical games, deadly plots, unexpected allies, and notoriety I never asked for.
 

All right, second semester. Do your worst.
 

Trials is the second book in the Academy of Unpredictable Magic series, a medium-burn reverse harem story intended for ages 18 and up, featuring a badass chick and the four sexy men who fall in love with her.

***Hot as F***k***

Elliot is one bad ass chick, and her romance with Roman wow it sizzles so bloody hot and sexy as hell. I'm glad because her relationship with Cam, Asher and even Dimtri is progressing nicely and omg it's just so freaking hot*** anyway I do hope that book 3 is just around the corner, I'm in love with Sarah Puckett's sexy as sin voice oh gods she gives me goosebumps *grins*

Not as great as the first book but still enjoyable

I didn't love this one as much as I loved the first book. Elliot won the chance to play in the Trials between all the different magic schools. It's the first time the unpredictable magic school was able to have a participant. So it was a big deal.. but Elliot stress me the heck out. She was soooooo worried about letting the school down. All she did was whine about how she wasn't good enough and I was so annoyed! I loved that we got to know her boys more but Elliot just annoyed me in this book.

The hits just keep coming!

Just like the first book this one is full of mystery, action and steamy romantic tension. I'm really loving this series. The storyline and characters are written so well. The slow burn romance is killing me with its sexual tension in the best way. I can't wait for book 3! Sarah Puckett how do I love the? Let me count the ways...... You really are one of my absolute favorite narrators. <3 #audiobookobsessionreviewer

I Will Keep Coming Back

Once again Ms. Moss and Ms. Puckett provide an excellent experience for the reader. This book is even better than the first as we learn more about the characters and the world in which they live. Through a magical competition, we learn more about both the magic that is available and the strengths and weaknesses of the characters. I also love that the tension between the characters is starting to make itself known to the other characters, thus adding more tension. This is my first RH novel so it will be interesting to see how this plays out. The possibility of so many relationships at once is foreign to me. Ms. Moss’ writing keeps me engaged and interested to learn more for these characters. I can’t wait to read more! I was provided with a free copy of this audio book for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.

I’m half and half with this was. Great read though!!

I love this book series, SOOO MUCH! But this book idk. Don’t get me wrong it was a REALLY good book, there were twists and turns and lots of steamy romance with just enough mean girl. But it just felt super rushed I wanted more detail and just a longer story line. I know there’s more to the series but the book it self just needed more detail for me. A LOT more detail. I still recommend this book to others because I feel like the series itself is going to be amazing, it just didn’t make the cut for me as much as the first book.

Outstanding Story & Narration🎧Action-Packed & Hot🔥

This is a great book and I loved everything about it, from Sadie Moss’s writing style to the storylines and characters she created to the wonderful narration performed by Sarah Puckett. This book brings us to Elliot’s second semester at the Academy of Unpredictable Magic. The Unpredictables have always been frowned upon by the magical community, but after last semester’s incident that may be changing. They have been invited to participate in a competition with the other schools of Magic and they will be hosting the event. The best students from each school participate in these trials, each challenge is kept secret until the day of the competition. A great concept and way for the unpredictables to be recognized by others. I love how the relationship between Elliot, Asher, Cam and Dmitri continues to develop things are starting to heat up for them. Also love their protectiveness of her and her relationship with Roman, which is smoking. He has a great perspective on the other guys in her life too. This is an action packed book, there is never a dull moment with plenty of drama, twists, angst, thrilling suspenseful moments that brings you to the edge of your seat as well as some hot romance. Sadie Moss, thank you for another great story & series, I am looking forward to what comes next for these wonderful characters. I listened to the Audible edition, Sarah Puckett is an awesome narrator and voice performer. She continues to bring these characters and their story to life. She give each their own unique voice and personality, as well as heart and attitude. I love her portrayal of these characters, her Elliott was spot on, badass with moments of vulnerability. Also love her male voices and how different each sound, making it easy to follow the characters. Sarah is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧 Thank you 🎧@AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsessionReviewer🎧

Another great installement

In the second installment Elliot gets ready for the trials and the competition and romance heat up. We dive deeper into their emotional relationships in this book. Sadie Moss gives us another action packed installment and look into the Academy life. Sarah brings everything to live and does an amazing job narrating. I don't want to give an spoiler and I fear I am not doing this book (series) justice. Just read it and you will love it. # Audio Obsession Review

love it

Elliot hasn't had the experience with her powers and was unable to control them at the same level of her classmates. She won the competition to represent her school in the Trials between the other Magic schools, She felt she wasn't good enough. Always there to protect her was her boys. Their relationship continues to grow stronger, also with Roman. This story is full of action, suspense. Sarah Puckett as always us a wonderful narrator. She captured the emotions and brought the story to life. I enjoyed listening to this sexy, action-packed, suspenseful story. 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer🎧

Fantastic 2nd part

Elliot is my hero! The way she feels about her life and her magic endears me to get and the part of her that is jyst beginning to embrace her feelings about her men and the school. The trials that she won was great. I was on needles waiting to see what would come next. The next book is waiting on me.

Fantastic

Audiobook review Yay for Book 2! I was eager to start it after finishing book 1, and it didn't disappoint. I enjoy getting to more about the guys and how their relationship with Elliot develops more, even though she is still afraid of getting herself into a relationship, she´s opening herself a little more and letting them in. The trials were really great, and frustrating at the same time. I love seeing how her guys always have her back and how she didn't back up even when all of the odds were against her. I honestly didn't see that ending coming. Now I can't wait for book 3. The narration was perfect, just as with book 1. Sarah Puckett delivers a great performance with her different voices, her tone, paced, and the way she makes you feel everything the characters are experiencing. AUDIOBOOK OBSESSION

Boy everything happens at the academy.

I’m going to start off by saying Sarah does a brilliant job of making all of the characters come to life. It is so easy to distinguish between them when listening to her work. The second book in the series shows that more unpredictable things are happening at The Academy and they involve the heroine Elliott. I’m hoping that her harem of guys become more involved like the first book in the next one. This book we’re learning more about the guys. Steamier sex times in this book, especially now that they know that sharing Elliott is on the table. Can’t wait for the next book! Audiobook Obsession Reviewer 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧

Trials and Magic

The Trials was thrilling and kept you on your toes. This is a great series and I love the dynamics of the reverse harem. Each man is very different in there personality and actions, but they all was there to help Elliot through out the story. I love Sarah Puckett and I Love her in this too. 🎧 AudiobookObsession

Good, but didn't live up to my hopes

I like this world setting. A lot. And I had hoped that the second in this series would kick off where the first had ended and progress into a better story and really grab hold of my attention Unfortunately, it didn't. I'm not actually sure why. The author is a good story teller, and the plot was pretty good. it's just that this sequel fell a little flat. ********** mini spoilers below ************ well, again, not really spoilers, but I still don't want to ruin your potential enjoyment of this series. okay, so sex on a gym floor mat. yuk. God knows how much bodily fluid has been spilt on that thing! also, staph infections etc. that was a mood killer. At least it was for me. not them. who go at it like rabbits. the finale was a little too easy. and also it ends on a bit of a cliffie (not much because, there are other books in the series so you know it all works out). It felt a little too predictable and I could see who the baddie was a mile off. not very unpredictable (ha!) Trials. it was called trials and the length of the trials, bar the first, were too quick. I wasn't able to enjoy them because they were over in a flash. more of these action type scenes would be great. There was very little in the way of character development. For any of the main characters. That was disappointing. 3 of the guys seem quite immature and one dimensional. The 4th is interesting, but there's not enough of him. Elliot is okay, but everything comes back down to kicking ass because she had a tough life prior. not necessarily a bad thing, I'd just like more. And finally, and I hate to say this, but the sex is boring. I know, it's a rh, and there's bound to be lots of rumpy pumpy, but it gets old after a while. And the sex scenes are long when I really want to get back to th chemistry and action :) and that's about it. I'm undecided as to whether I will be reading the next book. Honestly, despite the review, I liked the book. it just wasn't as great as it could have been.

another brilliant story!!

I love the characters in this series, they are all have such diverse magic and personal characteristics that its hard not to get emotionally involved. Elliott and her friends find another term at the academy if full of trials and drama!! Action packed and emotionally charged. Highly recommended! Sarah Pucketts narration really puts you into the mids of the story. Brilliant job!!

Nail biting

These trials will have you on the edge of your seat biting your nails in anticipation of how Elliot will succeed or not. Sadie does a fabulous job in creating this magical world and the drama of being an outsider. Some very hot scenes and some you’ll be shaking your head at for the self esteem issues. The ending will have you wanting to grab book three immediately. Sarah does a fabulous job with the narrative! 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Let the games begin.....

Elliot is expected to participate in inter-acadamy games in a trial of magical skills. Things don't go as planned for Elliott, as she and her friends discover an insidious plot to undermine them placing them in danger! I loved this book, the drama of the games, danger and suspense were all intence and addictive, the romance was incredibly steamy and full of emotion. I need book 3!
