It's a kind of magic, magic, magic, magic, magic. It's magic. Submit Corrections. Thanks to emily taylor, Cori, Joseph Hayes for correcting these lyrics. Roger Taylor was credited as the sole writer of this song, although Freddie Mercury almost completely re-wrote Taylor's melody and chords, and made another mix. Taylor's version is at the end of the film "Highlander" ; Mercury's version is on the album. In the "Highlander" film, Connor MacLeod answers to Rachel, "Hey, it's a kind of magic," when she asked him how he'd survived a gun shot. The phrase "a kind of magic" inspired Roger Taylor to write this song.
Other references to the film in these lyrics are "one prize, one goal" and "no mortal man". She now lives in central Virginia where she is hard at work on her second novel.

Jan 20th — See Laura Write. What really makes this books rise above for me, though, are two things. The first is the authenticity of the backstage life of a musician. From tour buses to fan boards, Marlowe finds just the right details to make you feel like you've scored a VIP pass without ever falling into the trap of just plain showing off how well she know I had the great pleasure of getting an advance copy of this book. From tour buses to fan boards, Marlowe finds just the right details to make you feel like you've scored a VIP pass without ever falling into the trap of just plain showing off how well she knows this world.
The second thing I love about Marlowe's book is that she rides the line of meeting all the expectations and desires of a romance reader, but never, ever tips into cliche. If there's a secret or a misunderstanding, she airs it right away and lets the tension come from the complex characters trying to sort out what it means to be in love in a world as complicated as our own.
In short, read this book. You'll have a great time, you'll feel like you really took a trip with a rock star, and you'll feel like it was the best couple of hours you've spent doing something recently. Feb 13, Jen Hawkins rated it it was amazing. This book is fantastic on so many levels. It will speak to anyone who's ever had a crush on a rock star. While that part of the story is the vicarious-living wish-fulfillment hook, the characters are incredibly and refreshingly real. They're complex and flawed sometimes insecure and quick to jump to conclusions , just like real people.
That's where the magic of this book lives for me--in the scary uncertainty of what it means to really love someone, imperfections and all. Marlowe skillfully jugg This book is fantastic on so many levels.
Some Kind of Magic
Marlowe skillfully juggles all of this emotional vulnerability with the fun scientific aspects of a modern-day love potion, the witty banter of two headstrong characters, and a sizzling romance that made me grateful the cover didn't have a shirtless dude on it to give me away as I read it in public, blushing like crazy.
Because whew! It kept me up reading way past my bedtime. I'd swear I was going to sleep, and then the next chapter would start with something that cracked me up so unexpectedly that I had to keep reading. I will definitely be paying attention to this author's career, and look forward to reading future novels from her! Dec 13, Megan rated it it was amazing. This book was exactly what I needed to read after a rough week.
I loved it! I don't really have a lot to say about this one other than it started out super cute and was most of the way through and when shit hit the fan, I was going crazy with so many emotions. But then the end was so anti climactic I got super depressed. Also just FYI because the title is misleading- there is no magic in this book. I was sad. Spoilers below tagged view spoiler [I loved Adam and he was so fun and perfect until the first time Eden made a mistake.
He got super upset, which is believable I don't really have a lot to say about this one other than it started out super cute and was most of the way through and when shit hit the fan, I was going crazy with so many emotions. He got super upset, which is believable, but I thought he would at least meet her half way to get her back. But no, she had to do everything. But she had to make all the changes and blah blah ugh. So stupid. I mean yes, he admits his faults in the end but it just wasn't enough.. Jan 25, Karen Whittard rated it really liked it.
Loved this book.

It is full of magic, romance, sparkle, laughter, happiness and a happy ever after. Absolutely everything that you want in a good book. Happy reading everyone. Jan 31, G. Unsurprisingly, it's a lyrical and flowing pace, and I'm so happy to say this book meets the mark. An earnest, honest musician? A discriminating, snarky scientist? A family connection to the music biz? All those items get checked off in this lovely debut book from a talented and accessible writer.

My favorite thing about Some Kind of Magic has to be the writing. Marlowe's prose doesn't try to seduce readers into appreciating it. It's simply there to tell the story in the manner of some of my favorite authors. She doesn't need smoke and mirrors to be engaging or to draw readers in--her plot and characters do that all by themselves. If you're looking for a light, fun, breezy, and sexy romp through the world of rock music and science , you can't go wrong with this book.
It's thoroughly enjoyable. Dec 28, Sandi Ward rated it it was amazing. Reading Some Kind of Magic is the literary equivalent of consuming a big chocolate cupcake with loads of buttercream frosting—it goes down easy! I enjoyed reading this book late into the night over my holiday break. The romance between Eden a biochemist and Adam a rock star! The reader gets to live vicariously through Eden, who is willing to toss aside a comfortable existence for a chance to live her dream as a musician.
These character snuck up on me and found a place in my heart. I had tears in my eyes for them when they cried but a big smile on my face by the end. Some Kind of Magic was a fabulous debut. Excited to hear that Micah gets his turn in the spotlight next. View 1 comment. Feb 09, Michael Mammay rated it it was amazing. I'm not a big romance reader, so I can't really tell you how this fits into the genre or anything like that. What I do know is that it's really good. I just knocked out the last hundred pages or so even though I was supposed to be doing something else.
Just didn't want to put it down. It's funny in that way where sometimes you laugh out loud, but even when you aren't laughing, you just smile the whole way through. The characters are really well rounded and you are going to find yourself rooting I'm not a big romance reader, so I can't really tell you how this fits into the genre or anything like that.
The characters are really well rounded and you are going to find yourself rooting for them. And they have a lot of sex. Great book.

Can't wait for the next one. Dec 17, Lauren rated it really liked it. I rarely finish a book all in one day, but I could not stop reading this one. I'm always a sucker for rockstar romances and this was a great one! Fast read with a super swoony romance, and a quick but believable connection between the couple. I could completely understand why Eden and Adam were drawn to each other - beyond the "magic" perfume. The story wasn't overly angsty though Eden and Adam each had to overcome their their own insecurities and figure out how to make it work between them.
Esp I rarely finish a book all in one day, but I could not stop reading this one. Especially with Adam being a a celebrity and in the public all the time. The story was pretty much perfect for the first three quarters. After being pretty good at communicating and working through things, there's suddenly a lot of misunderstanding and drama. I was glad to see Eden grow up a lot during this period and figure out her life more, but I wish is that view spoiler [ Adam had been the one to do more of the chasing at the end.
I totally get where it fit with Eden's need to finally take risks but I wanted to see Adam make a big gesture too, especially because she'd also been the one to fly to see him in Europe the first time. The only other thing I wanted to mention is that there's a small side storyline involving the possibility that a minor character is transgender.
I just have some questions about the way the storyline was presented. I get that it's totally her right to reveal anything or not, and the media can be vicious, but I wish this had been addressed more fully if it was going to be mentioned in the story - it felt unfinished and uncomfortably vague to me.
The Differences Between the 5 Major Types of Magic
I don't understand why a fake engagement to Adam was supposed to stop the media's questions? I like that Adam is protective of her and doesn't want to reveal anything to Eden, but in not addressing the plot directly, it's definitely sending a confusing message at least to me. Mar 09, J. This was such a fun and hot read. The chemistry pun intended between Adam and Eden was electric. The writing was seamless and the story so well crafted. Can't wait for the next one! Mar 06, Kristin Rockaway rated it it was amazing. This is an incredibly fun and sexy read! For anyone who's ever dreamed about what it's like to date a rock star -- or be a rock star -- this book is for you.
Can't wait to read the sequel! Dec 21, Elle's Book Blog rated it really liked it Shelves: chicklit , womens-fiction. This is a really fun and sweet story and I had a good time reading it. So much that I actually read the entire book in one sitting because I simply couldn't get enough! The author does a fantastic job with this book and I felt very connected to the characters. It also reminded me of one of my favorite movies - Love Potion Number 9 -, which added to my reading experience.
Of course, this story is quite different in terms of the characters, but so fresh and fun none the less. Marlowe has a hit on her hands with this witty story and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. I am highly anticipating her next release. I hope we don't have to wait too long!

I knew I was going to like this one, but I didn't realise I would like it as much as I did!
What a pleasant surprise! I liked both Eden and Adam from the start. I loved Adam and how down-to-Earth he was now. Their chemistry Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. Their chemistry was really well-written, though I never felt consumed by it. In fact, I think part of the conflict in the book came down to Eden thinking he'd be like a rock star stereotype, partying all the time and sleeping around, even when his words and behaviour showed he wasn't.
