Get ready for a fun, flirty paranormal romance in the STAY A SPELL world:
- friends to lovers
- loads of pining
- low angst, high humor
- a witch/werewolf coupling
- super steamy (and a magical supply closet)
Violet Savoie has a plan. A dream, rather. To open her own tattoo shop, which caters to supernaturals in need of permanent charms. As a powerful Seer, she has the potent magic to cast every kind of spell. Except the kind to give werewolves control over their beastly side. And her business partner Nico needs help in the worst kind of way.
Nico Cruz has a secret. A motive, rather. To subtly stalk and seduce Violet until she finally recognizes they are fated to be together. Ever since their heated encounter in Austin on New Year’s Eve two years earlier, he’s been dying to get his hands—and his tongue—back on her body. He knows a woman like Violet can’t be courted in the usual way. Luckily, Nico has no scruples about misbehaving to get what he wants.
But when his former pack roams into town, and an old friend is far too interested in Violet, his focus shifts to the threat venturing into his territory. Nico may come across as the quiet, broody one, but the intruders are about to regret stepping foot in New Orleans. And when Violet goes missing, no charm or spell can keep Nico’s wolf at bay.
Juliette Cross has created a tight and easy to read paranormal world in her Stay a Spell series. I’ve only read the first and third book but so far, Witches Get Stitches is my favorite! Both Violet and Nico immediately spring off the page and Violet, especially, doesn’t get lost in her mess of sisters like I felt Evie did in the first book. Tattoo artist and seer, she stands on her own two feet and is exactly my favorite type of heroine. She does friend-zone Nico, though, after not realizing that he is the one for her. Nico, on the other hand, immediately knows that Violet is meant for him and he plays the long game of friendship and becoming a business partner in order to win her over. The little things that Nico does for Violet are just so sweet; they warm my heart! As for Violet, she starts to give in her desire to Nico and to realize that he truly is the one for her. Once they start to go at it, wooziers! I also enjoyed the subplot about the magical tattoos Violet is creating. I’m definitely going back and reading the 2nd book and can’t wait for the next one!
