2016 Booksellers' Best Award Finalist

"Glazki's writing is brilliant and hooks you right in." -- For the Love of Fictional Worlds

Muse Alexandra has had it with the arrogant, ungrateful humans she is obligated to inspire. When the internal ranting of her latest charge pushes her past reason, she disregards the rules and forces her own words through his fingers, and is instantly entrapped in mortal form. With no magic, no identity, and no resources, Allie has no alternative but to navigate the mortal realm, depending entirely on her reluctant host while discerning what exactly caused her transformation--and how to reverse it.

Brett doesn't have a chance to consider the words that mysteriously showed up on his screen; he's too distracted by the stunning woman who appeared in his office out of nowhere. Before his brain can catch up, Brett's uninvited guest becomes enmeshed in his everyday life. Her artless innocence gradually lessens his suspicions. Most importantly, the writer's block that's been plaguing him dissolves under the fantasies the naively beguiling Alexandra inspires.

All too soon, the forced proximity sparks a confounding awareness neither writer nor muse are able to resist.

HASH(0x9f109594) out of 5 stars A sweet romance in an adult package Aug. 21 2015
By Sherry Fundin - Published on
Format: Paperback
The lovely cover portrays the sweet, loving romance inside. Adult, yet sweet and naive. The sex is more about the romance than the physical act.

Mortal Musings is told from two perspectives, those of Brett, the writer and his muse, Andie.

Brett had writers block. Had his muse deserted him, if there was such a thing?

Silly humans. Didn't they had understand that they had to come up with the ideas, then the muse can help develop them.

As he typed the words, she appeared. I love the storyline. It sounds like so much fun. She is now mortal, no longer faerie. What will become of her? Can she go back? She had bucked the system, but never planned to leave it.

The flavor of Mortal Musings reminded me of Splash, learning to do all the simple things of being human that we take for granted. Her first taste of human food, learning about financial means. She had to learn about clothes, instead of clouds, of showers instead of fae lakes, where her hair floated and dried in a flash.

The details and description of simple things seen in a different light. The sweet gesture of Brett zipping up her for she doesn't know what a zipper is.

The Dream Weaver, Rizen, had he been sent to help her? Andie had cast a spell and Rizen told her to search for the loophole.

The slow sweet, innocent and tentative moves toward closeness is so romantic, captivating and sensual. I love the slow pace as their relationship develops, even though it has only been days. Nothing is rushed or hurried. After all, this isn't insta love. They have know each other for a long time.

Brett is sweet and chivalrous.

Allie has an other-world aura, that the people around her seem to sense without realizing it.

I am so curious how this will end. I know what I want to happen.

I have not read a story like this before and I was swept away with her innocence and naivety.To watch her grow and develop in a human world was fun and sad at the same time.

What man wouldn't want a woman who would rather be naked the clothed?

Mortal Musings brought to mind the movie, Splash, where even the simplest thing is new - how to plug a bathtub, take a shower, dry off with a towel. Her wet hair stuck against her back, instead of being instantly dry in the faerie world, clothes on, clothes off at a snap or quicker. Because of watching Splash, Mortal Musings was easy to follow and picture the scenes when she is learning something new and I loved that.

It is so hard to describe the details without spoiling it for you and I want you to have the enjoyment of discovering it for yourself.

I received an ARC of Mortal Musings by Aria Glazki in return for an honest and unbiased review.

HASH(0x9f1095e8) out of 5 stars A Lovely Read Sept. 28 2015
By G. W. von Hohenzollern - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Mortal Musings" is the first romance novel that I've ever read, and I found it to be a delightful read. It's a lighthearted, sweet story about a semi-successful mystery writer named Brett and his muse, Alexandra. Alexandra begins the story as an invisible presence but after becoming fed up with Brett for his perceived ingratitude, accidentally casts a spell that incarnates her in the mortal world.

The story follows the development of Brett's and Allie's relationship as told from the first-person perspective of each. One of my main takeaways of the story is how trapped in our own minds we often are, and how our perspective and experience can often greatly limit our understanding of others.

I recommend the book to anyone who wishes to read a very sweet romantic comedy with a fun premise and a few very likable characters.

HASH(0x9f109a20) out of 5 stars A great escape! Sept. 12 2015
By Rachel Wang - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a well written, thoughtful, and enchanting love story. It is a light read, full of personality and characters that feel real (even if paranormal!)
It is a perfect beach read, but also great to curl up with on a rainy day. Just like with her previous novel Mending Heartstrings, Glazki writes about romance in way that encapsulates all the realities of a relationship that is sometimes sexy and playful, sometimes frustrating, and sometimes fulfills holes in our lives that we didn't know were there.
HASH(0x9f109de0) out of 5 stars Fun and entertaining! Feb. 24 2016
By Jessica - Published on
Format: Paperback
Mortal Musings had me at the acknowledgments. I liked the fact that it's dedicated to those that feel invisible. I know I've felt invisible a time or two. And it goes great for the theme of the book. Especially the beginning. Allie is a muse, a type of other world being that helps the process of creativity to artists, musicians, etc. She commits a huge no-no when she helps the process for one of her subjects by writing something that came directly from her.

All of a sudden the human man, Brett, can see her and instead of calling the cops, he takes her in. It's clear she has no idea where, who, or what she is. Basic things such as clothes and food are lost to Allie. To add on to all the confusion is human emotions! So scary! The sensual and sweet way Allie and Brett were around each other, made me want to scream. I felt the "chemistry" early on, and all I wanted them to do was get it on. I know, I know, I'm a pervert.

The story is one of sexy, slow burn romance. If you're looking for an insta- romance, you won't find that here. The beginning is a little slow to start but once you get several chapters in, it starts getting much more interesting. It's enjoyable watching Allie maneuver her way around our world. But she needs to get back to her realm. There's a way but she's going to have to figure it out all on her own. Follow Allie and Brett as they race to make sense of the predicament their in.
HASH(0x9f109ec4) out of 5 stars I really loved this story March 9 2016
By Angel Hatfield - Published on
Format: Paperback
Alexandria/Allie has been a muse for hundreds of years. Brett has writers block and has a deadline to meet and not on idea in his mind. Brett’s muse must have left him hanging if there really were such a thing. which Brett didn’t believe or why wasn’t he more successful ? Allie got angry at Brett for his way of thinking for in all the hundreds of years she had helped creative people not one human has ever been thankful. She lashes out at her ungrateful charge and forces him to write a poem which is against the rules . She then realized she is no longer faerie but human. Allie was stunned , sure she had fought the system some but she had never in her wildest dream planed on leaving it . Brett thought Allie had broke into his house once he realized she was even there. He was tempted to call the cops but didn’t as for some reason he had a strong urge to protect Allie.
I really loved this story. It was a little slow going at first but after I got into the story I didn’t want to put it down. Just a very sweet and enjoyable read. I really liked how Brett and Allie were attracted to each other but Brett went slow as they built a relationship as Allie was so innocent about everything. The characters were also really good I like the ins and outs Allie and Brett went through also. I recommend.
I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
