A fake relationship between a magic-less witch and a wolf shifter turns to more in the start of a bewitching new paranormal rom-com series.
Magic-less witch Violet Maxwell wants nothing to do with alpha wolf shifter Lincoln Thorne—the man who broke her fragile, teenage heart. But when the two of them are forced by arcane Supernatural Laws to find mates, Violet and Lincoln agree to fake-date their way to a fake-mating in order to conjure themselves some time.
The joke’s on them. When old feelings make a reappearance—along with Violet’s magic—they both realize there’s nothing fake about their feelings. But there are old secrets and looming threats that could snatch away their happily ever after, again. One thing’s for sure: magic doesn’t make dating and love any easier.
In Not the Witch You Wed, April Asher brings all the hilarity and sweet, sexy moments you love in a romantic-comedy—plus a fun dose of magic—to this spell-binding new series about being sexy, single, and supernatural in New York City.
Things get hexy in Asher's Supernatural Singles series launch, a delightful paranormal rom-com. Violet Maxwell is happy to stay out of the spotlight in the supernatural world, as, though she's a triplet granddaughter to a powerful Prima Witch, she has no magical abilities that she knows of. Wolf shifter Lincoln Thorne, the Alpha of the North American Pack, wants to leave his past behind and create a better future for all shifters. Both Violet and Lincoln oppose the arcane, oppressive laws of the Supernatural Community—especially given that they're each bound by these laws to find a mate. The pair have a painful history, but to get around the antiquated ritual they agree to put aside their baggage and fake a relationship, hoping to buy enough time to find a loophole in the laws and bring about reform. Of course, feelings and attraction—both physical and magical—get in the way. All of this makes for a hilarious, sexy, and refreshingly modern take on the paranormal romance trope of fated mates that throws tradition in the trash. Asher artfully navigates themes of choice vs. destiny and power vs. oppression while weaving a steamy, heartfelt love story. Readers will devour this.
Nice Intro For a New Series
This was a slow start for me. I read book 2, Not Your Ex's Hexes first and that one grabbed me from the get go. This one, because it has a little more world building (that I promise helps make book 2 make more sense!), took a little more time to get going. But once it was going, I did enjoy it quite a bit. It's a cute, light, sexy, romance that doesn't take itself seriously and sometimes that's just what we need in our lives, amiright?
Didn’t finish. Ugh.
Delish fun read
Enjoyable and hoping the author develops other stories from the supporting characters in the book
