TLDR Recap:

The last in a long line of very powerful witches, Anwyn, unbelievably, can barely cast spells. She does the best she can by serving as the resident Other Liaison in the Preternatural Investigation Team, or PIT as it’s known to everyone. Now, with her limited powers failing her, she must hunt down an Other killer before any more women die.  If you like your suspense mixed with liberal humor and plenty of sexual tension I would definitely recommend Hex and the Single Witch.

Thoughts:

One look at the book cover and I fully expected this book to be hot. Starting with the very first line… “Vampires strutted their stuff on a runway to Right Said Fred’s “Too Sexy.” I was hooked and could not put this down. Equal parts suspense and sexual tension Hex and the Single Witch will keep you at the edge of your seat.

As the female at the center of a preternatural love triangle, Anwyn is torn between dark and beautiful Galen and her human partner, Mike. One is no good for her health, the other no good for her career. That being said, Anwyn can’t seem to fight her attraction to either one of them. She fights her baser instincts while trying to solve a murder.  Throughout the story I found myself torn over which one of the men Anwyn should choose. There was a definite chemistry between Anwyn and Mike Malone, but there was an almost obsessive attraction between her and Galen. At any given moment I could be found rooting for one or the other to finally win her heart… or at least make it past second base! I’ve never seen someone with so many options get so little action.

The Sex in the City like quality of the romance however had to share the spotlight with the real story, which was the mystery Mike and Anwyn were trying to solve. With twist, turns and the occasional magical wrench thrown in, Rhoads keeps you guessing. Did he really do it? Is he being framed? These are questions that will plague you and keep you turning pages.

A great beginning to what promises to be a must follow series. I can’t wait to read book two!

Memorable Quotes:

Never bother a woman before her first cup of coffee

I managed to hit the green accept button as I further extricated myself from sleep’s firm grasp. Apparently not far enough because instead of saying hello I mumbled something along the lines of “I’m too sexy.”

A whole new meaning to the saying “don’t have a cow”

Hmm… it would probably be for the better if he wasn’t interested. My grandmother would totally have a goat if she found out I dated a vampire.

No really, when Grams got super upset goats appeared.

Wouldn’t we all want to have this problem

I smiled, grateful someone would check on the fairy, even if the drunken little bitch had been glamouring my man… one of my men. Wow, I sounded more like a slut every time I thought about it. Men. Plural. More than one.

If you liked Hex and the Single Witch…

If you enjoyed Hex and the Single Witch and enjoy your suspense with a bit of built-in comic relief then don’t miss Spying in High Heels, book one on the High Heels Mystery series by Gemma Halliday is sure to keep you chuckling while trying to figure out who the real culprit is. Mystery, suspense and a blonde somehow bungling her way through a police investigation to get at the truth. A definite can’t miss!

Final Thoughts:

Suspense liberally laced with sexual tension, this story will keep you guessing at everything from the true identity of the murderer to what man our sex-deprived witch will choose in the end.  Hex and the Single Witch is a recommended read!

Rating: Hex and the Single Witch
