Blurb: Massage therapist Joe Wells is in a little over his head with his first job at the posh Magic Touch Sports Spa. He’s also secretly falling for his friendly, sexy coworker, the top-notch masseur Andre Swift. All the clients clamor for Andre, and so far none have taken to Joe.
On the verge of being fired, Joe saves the life of a mysterious kitten belonging to a white witch, who grants him a wish: a magic touch that could save his job and maybe even win him Andre’s love and respect. As Joe’s stock at the spa rises to crazy and barely manageable levels of success, demand for Andre’s services drops off. Will Joe lose Andre to an out-of-control spell? Or worse—Andre’s love might prove to be only a result of the magic, just like Joe’s sudden talent.
Review: Love or Magic, which one can you believe in more?
Joe has only been out of Massage school for a short while and is now working as a massage therapist at Magic Touch Sports Spa. He wants to succeed at his new job, but with the demanding customers and his huge crush on Andre, the other massage therapist, it is becoming very difficult to do his job and to satisfy the customers. When one of the customers have had it with Joe’s massage and complains to his boss, Joe is given a ‘do better or else’ he knows that he will be fired if he doesn’t improve.
After work Andre promises to give Joe a few pointers to help improve his techniques. At the apartment, things get embarrassing for Joe and he leaves. On his way home he rescues a cat and the owner wants to reward Joe. Joe tells the lady about his failures at work, about his crush, and about his insecurities. The lady grants Joe one wish, and things start going great for Joe, his relationship is Andre, and his clients are praising him for his massages and booking him for repeats in advance.
Joe is wondering is all of this is happening because of one magic spell. I love this story and recommend it to anyone who want a short read.
