It was her sisters’ fault, really. Their idea that Evie use studly coffee slinger Caleb Mahoney for sex to get over her ex. It was supposed to be simple. Spell him into wanting her, get down and dirty with him, release all her pent-up sexual energy, and then do a simple forgetful spell. Easy magic for three sister witches. No biggie. Right?
Wrong. Every time Evie decides to come clean, well…they do it again. And again! It’s not her fault…at least, she’s pretty sure. Something niggles and itches deep in her brain every time she starts to confess.
Is it chemistry or bad magic? Has their simple bang-yourself-happy-again spell gone out of control? Is it amping up automagically? Or is it because the huge, shorn, loveable man—whoda thunk it?—is really good in bed? And the van…and the shower…and the… You get the picture.
"I. Am. Done. With. Men." When Evie's ex-boyfriend ran off with the babysitter from next door, she is ready to turn all men into jackasses... until Caleb Mahoney walks into the coffee shop where Evie and her sisters Annie and Lanie were talking. Then things take on a whole new outlook. How hard can it be and what harm could a little lust spell cause for a powerful witch like Evie?
Okay, so that may be a loaded question. By the end of the first chapter I was rolling in the floor laughing as I watched Evie toy with Caleb, or was Caleb toying with Evie? With a weird itchy thing going on every time she and Caleb came together and her zapping him with lust spells, it made for some high spirited and entertaining reading.
I must say I am not a fan of cold weather and there is no way I would want to bare my backside for a quickie in the back of a cold van with any man, but hey, that is the beauty of an author who has a wild imagination and a great sense of humor. When she added in two crazy sisters and a Taser then I could not stop laughing at the sparks flying. Even though the sex scenes were not super detailed, they still had a certain sweetness to them that made the story worth reading.
The story was a fabulous romantic comedy so I couldn’t help laughing out loud more than once. They say that laughter helps to relieves stress and I think it may be true as I sure felt light and stress free when I was finished with this tale. Definitely unique and humorous, and was worth every arched eyebrow my hubby sent my way while reading.
