What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
Mistaken identities, a human in a magical world, and three sexy warlocks. Sounds like the start of a joke, but nope…
It’s my life.
After one too many kamikazes on my twenty-first birthday, I’ve made a few interesting discoveries.
First of all… magic is real.
Secondly… there’s a whole supernatural dimension that exists parallel to ours.
Thirdly… I’ve somehow gotten stuck in that dimension.
There are about a billion things wrong with this picture, including the fact that I don’t actually have any magic. Everyone here thinks I do though. They also think I’m a witch named Roxie, the star student at Radcliffe Magical Academy.
Ummm. Nope. Not me. Sorry.
I don’t know where the hell the real Roxie is, or how I’m supposed to get back home, but I’m determined to find out.
Unfortunately, I keep getting distracted by three hot-as-hell warlocks I can’t seem to avoid. Cross, a snarky bad boy who pushes all my buttons, Theo, an incorrigible flirt with a devastating accent, and Kasian, a teacher’s assistant who’s totally off limits.
Even though I’m drawn to all three of them, I’m not sure I should trust them.
Because if anybody finds out I don’t belong here…
Magic Swap is the first book in the Hidden World Academy series, a fast-burn reverse harem story about a sassy human who’s out of her depth and the three men who fall in love with her.
Thoughts on Magic Swap
I really like the worlds Sadie Moss invents and the way she wraps imagery around a word. This book, which is a university level Academy RH, is no different.
She takes the popular sub genre and makes it her own, introducing parallel worlds that are strikingly similar, yet very different. The hidden world, which has magic, and the dull world, which does not. Mischief and mystery soon abound, leading to lush story that is just getting started.
There’s a saying that the more you do a thing, the easier it gets. Personally, I don’t think that’s quite true. I don’t think the thing actually gets any easier—I think you just get used to how hard it is, and you accept the work that goes into it. (1%)
- Very Inventive concept.
- World building.
- Fast/med burn, but felt slower, in a good way.
- Gabbi is actually pretty relatable.
- Could have benefited from multiple POV
- I think I would have questioned Cross just a little bit more… just a bit.
First Person, Single POV

My Final Verdict on Magic Swap
This is the kind of Academy Romance I just love – mature enough to be enjoyed by the older readers while adventurous enough to keep you enthralled. It weaves and twists, tempting the reader to understand while dropping breadcrumbs that lead to book 2. Well done.
