50 Ways to Hex Your Lover, by Linda Wisdom

19 Jul

Format: Kindle Edition, 374 pages
Published: March 1, 2008 (first published January 1, 2008)
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Back cover blurb:
Jazz cant decide whether to scorch him with a fireball or jump into bed with him

Jasmine Tremaine, a witch who cant stay out of trouble
Nikolai Gregorivich, a drop-dead gorgeous vampire cop on the trail of a serial killer

The sizzling love affair between Jazz and Nick has been off-again-on-again-for about 300 years. Mostly off, lately. But now Nick needs Jazzs help, and while Jazz and Nick try to figure out their own hearts and resist their ever-increasing attraction, they must steer clear of a maniacal killer with super-supernatural powers. They are surrounded by a hilarious cast of oddball paranormal characters, including Norma, the chain-smoking ghost who haunts Jazzs sports car, Dweezil, her ghoul of a boss, and Fluff and Puff, a pair of bunny slippers with sharp teeth and short tempers (watch your ankles!).

My review:
This was a Kindle freebie, and it fitted in with a reading challenge I was doing, so I gave it a go. I really liked Jazz Tremaine – she has a great name, and who wouldn’t love a rebellious witch who likes In N Out burgers and thigh-high boots? I also really enjoyed her relationships with hunky vampire cop Nick and Irma, the ghost who lives in her car. The fact she has a pair of killer fluffy slippers is also pure win.

Perhaps my problem was with the baddie, Clive Reeves. There wasn’t really much background of his character which would have explained his motivations, so I guess he just didn’t cut it as a villain for me. I just didn’t care about him enough to be scared of him.

I enjoyed it, but it didn’t really grab me at any point, not even at the big showdown ending. There are more Jazz books in this series; maybe they will be better.

My rating: 3.5/5
