Synopsis: (From Amazon)
On a bike tour of Ireland last summer, Morgan Rawlinson fell for Colin, the hunky guide, and entered a portal that turned her into the goddess Morganne. Now she’s back to her painfully normal life and her relationship with Colin has fizzled to the occasional e-mail, until he writes saying he’s coming to Connecticut, just in time for the prom.

But when he arrives, he’s exhausted. It seems that when Morgan crossed the portal as Morganne, a spell was cast on Colin. In his dreams he’s being forced to dance ’til dawn with the faeries, who want to boogie with him for eternity. Somehow she has to break the spell on her date, help plan the prom, and find the perfect dress. Oh, what a night.

This book was a good, fast read. It was interesting and quirky, something that’d be great to bring to a beach.

That being said, the plot didn’t have much substance, and the characters didn’t grow much throughout the story. Within the novel there are countless fights and obvious issues between Morgan’s parents, yet this is never fully resolved. Morgan’s sister, Tammy, seems far younger than her age, but that might be because she’s only seen as the baby of the family. While there is obvious conflict involved for Morgan, her family seemed superfluous.

Still four stars, as it was a fairly good read, but not something I’d expect to pick up again.
