Book Shelf: 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover (Jazz Tremaine #1) by Linda Wisdom

Jazz can't decide whether to scorch him with a fireball or jump into bed with him.

Jasmine Tremaine, a witch who can't 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 Jazz's 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 Irma, the chain-smoking ghost who haunts Jazz's 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)!

To be honest, I wasn’t fussed in this book. There were too many holes in the plot and the storyline was boring for the most part. I admit there were a few parts that were fun and interesting, but most of the time I just wanted the book to be over. It seemed slow and there was too much within it that just seemed pointless; I saw no reason to have to know certain details and some scenes just dragged on. I didn’t feel anything for any of the characters, although Jazz was a spunky gal. However was nothing about either her or Nick that stood out for me and I found it hard to emphasize or sympathise with them when they really meant nothing to me.

I wasn’t too interested in the relationship between Jazz and Nick. I get their history and all, but it seemed like they carried on and on about things and it just wore on my nerves. I never really saw the “spark” that Jazz seemed to believe she had with Nick. To me, theirs was just another relationship. I never saw something between them that made me sit up and think, “Damn, they sure do have chemistry”.

The only real think I liked about this book were Fluff and Puff. Come on, monster bunny slippers that devour anything they can get their hands--ahhh, I mean teeth on--is just cool! It’s unique and I’ve never seem it before. I did think it was funny how Jazz interacted with them and treated them like they were pets. That I liked.

So all in all, kinda pointless. Not a great read, but that’s just me. Others may enjoy this quirky tale, but I guess I can’t complain too much seeing as it was free.....

Yuck--not a big fan on cartoon covers.

  1. LOL. I have to say if you got through the whole book I am impressed. I think I started skimming after the first chapter and then just turned to the end. Not a fan, def. on my could not finish list.

  2. I will admit it was hard to finish this book. In all honestly, I hate not finishing books, so that's probably the only reason I actually finished it.

    It's nice to know I wasn't the only one who disliked it though, lol.
