✱✱Book Review✱✱ Root Rot Academy: Term 2 by Rhea Watson


Root Rot Academy: Term 2
by Rhea Watson


The warlock who slaughtered my parents is watching me—and I was a fool to think revenge would be easy.

Once upon a time, I thought I could be brave.

Sixteen years ago, I changed my name. Desperate to escape the nightmares, I let Hannah go and embraced Alecto. I so wanted to be the fearless fury who righted wrongs and slayed the monster…

Only now that I’ve met him, it isn’t that simple.

It isn’t simple to take a life—to be like him—but I have to do something. Waiting for the answer to drop into my lap isn’t good enough anymore.

But the fallout of Samhain hits us all differently.

Bjorn is traumatized.

Jack is targeted.

Gavriel is coming apart at the seams.

And I’m just trying to move forward, one day at a time.

With closets full of skeletons, we head into the darkest time of the year hoping things will get better, unaware that the second term is the beginning of the end.

As I juggle my men, my job, and my vengeance, one thing becomes painfully clear…

Benedict Hammond isn’t the only monster lurking at Root Rot Academy.

Root Rot is an academy Why-Choose romance trilogy centered around the professors and staff. It contains mature subject matter that might not be suitable for all readers.


Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Way to leave us on the edge of our seats! I expected at least an open-ended finish for this second book in the trilogy, but wow - talk about leaving a reader wanting even one more page! True to form, Rhea Watson has put together all the paranormal fun and intrigue we can handle in a fast-paced academy romance. 
This is also a why choose romance, and of course, these guys are just too delicious to choose between. Each of them brings something different to the table, and they're all three lovable in their own way. Bjorn is gentle despite, or maybe because of his past, Jack is such a contrast between the straight-laced professional and the dom. There's a scene in this one (not the D/s kind) where Jack is explaining himself to Alecto, and it's one of my favorites in the book. And then there's Gavriel. I like all three of Alecto's guys, but Gavriel is definitely my favorite. He's the perfect mix between playful and dark, and his brand of snarky endears him to me all the more. 
Like the first in the trilogy, this one has some intrigue and danger unrelated to the ongoing storyline concerning Benedict Hammond, and not everything is all tied up in a neat little bow. So, if you don't like cliffhangers, be warned. Nevertheless, whether you read them as they release or you binge through all three, this is a thoroughly entertaining story with characters you just can't get enough of. I know I'll be anxiously awaiting whatever's next.
