Getting hexy for the holidays!
Mischief and mayhem dominate the holiday season for the Savoie sisters of New Orleans. Five sexy stories set in the STAY A SPELL world you don’t want to miss.
Bewitch You A Merry Christmas: Always the peacemaker, Evie conjures Christmas magic between a hexed hottie and his witchy neighbor, while Mateo and Alpha plan to do whatever it takes to get some alone time with their girl.
Rockin’ Around The Hexmas Tree: A Dirty Santa gift with a very special hex boosts Devraj and Isadora’s sex life from sizzling hot to scorching.
Jingle Bell Jock: On New Year’s Eve, a new man puts the moves on Charlie. Tired of pining for his best friend, he’s ready to move on. Fortunately, JJ’s jealousy is just the right ingredient to move them well out of the friend zone.
You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grim: Her first glimpse of grim reaper Gareth Blackwater evokes a major case of insta-hate in Lavinia. In that same moment, Gareth is hit with insta-lust. Fate is playing with them both, and neither one is happy about it.
Jingle Spells: Nico and Violet laugh their way through their first babysitting adventure. But laughter turns to lust when Nico’s “dad” vibes tug on Violet’s maternal heartstrings
Getting an ARC of Walking in a Witchy Wonderland was the push I needed to go back and read Don’t Hex and Drive, which I absolutely loved. This book is definitely not a standalone, with the exception of Jingle Bell Jock. But even then, knowing the characters already really helps the story. Honestly, I view this book as an extended epilogue for characters I already love. I’m not usually a holiday romance fan and it was a little weird to read this book in September but I did really enjoy it.
Bewitch You a Merry Christmas: Evie and Mateo’s nerdiness is still adorable and I loved the subplot with Tia and Marcus! It’s really interesting how Alpha is his own character while still being apart of Mateo. That contrast is especially clear considering we see Nico in this book as well.
Rockin’ Around The Hexmas Tree: This story is purely steam between Isadora and Devraj thanks to a present from one of her sisters. I especially love the scenes where we see the sisters interact and get to feel out the personalities of the ones who don’t have stories yet.
Jingle Bell Jock: This is a full story as opposed to extended epilogues and is the friends-to-lovers tale of our favorites Charlie and JJ. I’ve been rooting for them since the first book and I was so happy when their close friendship moved to something more!
You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grim: Pure tease for hopefully the next book! I’ve been waiting for Gareth and Lavinia since Witches Get Stiches and I’m dying to know more about grims! This was a short introductions into the burning chemistry between Gareth and Lavinia.
Jingle Spells: Just like I’m a sucker for secret/surprise babies, I love baby epilogues when they make sense. A jump in the future and Nico and Violet are babysitting Evie and Mateo’s triplets. This story is just pure fun and adorableness and a glimpse into the futures of the two couples!
