There’s nothing funnier than watching a witch on the fritz try to hide that her magic has gone a little haywire. That all of Danica’s issues are caused by an undeniable attraction to a mundane is just the icing on the cake. And what a cake he is…a rugged baker the whole town is swooning over. No one would ever suspect that he’s been cursed to be the world’s most attractive 30-something-year-old virgin!
This story practically begs to be made into a modern Bewitched series. Though with all the heat between them, it’d probably need to go on cable.
The only reason it didn’t get a perfect five-stars is that it didn’t immediately pull me into the story. But by the end of the first few chapters, I was all in.
This book made me laugh, and the characters are memorable and relatable. And, of course, it had to have the HEA ending all good rom-coms deserve.
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: September 2021
Danica Waterhouse is a fully modern witch—daughter, granddaughter, cousin, and co-owner of the Fix-It Witches, a magical tech repair shop. After a messy breakup that included way too much family “feedback,” Danica made a pact with her cousin: they’ll keep their hearts protected and have fun, without involving any of the overly opinionated Waterhouse matriarchs. Danica is more than a little exhausted navigating a long-standing family feud where Gram thinks the only good mundane is a dead one and Danica’s mother weaves floral crowns for anyone who crosses her path.
Three blocks down from the Fix-It Witches, Titus Winnaker, owner of Sugar Daddy’s bakery, has family trouble of his own. After a tragic loss, all he’s got left is his sister, the bakery, and a lifetime of terrible luck in love. Sure, business is sweet, but he can’t seem to shake the romantic curse that’s left him past thirty and still a virgin. He’s decided he’s doomed to be forever alone.
Until he meets Danica Waterhouse. The sparks are instant, their attraction irresistible. For him, she’s the one. To her, he’s a firebomb thrown in the middle of a family war. Can a modern witch find love with an old-fashioned mundane who refuses to settle for anything less than forever?
