Review: The Griffin’s Secret by by Cate Masters

In this contemporary re-telling of Grimm’s classic fairy tale The Griffin, two people must risk everything to free themselves from the invisible prisons that keep them from love…

Jackson Grant had it all—the girl he loved, his Harley, and his guitar. Until a tragic accident stole it all away. Now, more than scars and a tattoo remain. Jackson has a secret. Cursed by his dead girlfriend’s mother, he can never fall in love again or his beloved will die. With his heart on lockdown, he keeps to himself—until a roadie gig with Malcontent, the world’s most popular band, entwines his fate with sweet, wounded Layla’s…

Music is what Layla lives for. She has no choice. She’s bound by magic to serve Malcontent, cursed to propel them to stardom with her musical powers. Then Jackson appears and gives her hope that he’s the hero who will save her. A reluctant hero, yet one she can’t resist. But freedom will come at price—and who will pay…?

Jackson Grant is cursed. After the tragic death of his girl-friend he is cursed by her mother.  One night he meets an unusual man named Grundy, he gets a tattoo, offers words of wisdom, and is off to the West Coast to be a roadie for a rock band, Malcontent. When he meets the band, he also meets Layla. Layla is bound to the band leader, Mal, who lets Jackson know she is off-limits.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The story itself was interesting.  There was a lot of suspense and intrigue.  I loved the paranormal aspect of this book and it does get a bit dark, but never got too dark. This is a short story so there wasn’t a lot of character development.  The plot though, was intriguing enough to keep me reading. It was entertaining and very creative.  The plot twists and turns, and just like fairy tales, good conquers evil.
