5 Howlingly Good, Bewitching Stars
“I could taste his dominance from here, and yet he was also giving off cinnamon-roll vibes. What a paradox this werewolf was.”
Witches Get Stitches is the third standalone in the Stay a Spell series by the enchantingly lovely Juliette Cross. No doubt a word witch in her own right, Juliette Cross has written a bewitchingly intoxicating romance that features reluctant yet headstrong Savoie sister, Violet, and her determined werewolf bad boy/business partner, Nico.
What’s better than a romance between a werewolf shifter and a witch? A SPICY paranormal romance between a werewolf shifter which has some of the best unrequited love with a grumpy/sunshine twist that I’ve read in a long time. After a kismet encounter on New Year’s Eve in Texas, Violet retreats back to New Orleans determined to keep Nico a one night stand only.
“I wasn’t sure why she was fighting this so hard, but I’d let her fight it a bit longer before I took matters into my own hands.”
Y’all. We all know better, right? Even Nico knows better. He takes matters into his own hands. Those skillful, guitar playing, song writing, hands in order to enmesh himself into Violet’s life so that she cannot avoid him at all. Nico is one smart wolf, but his patience can only last so long. His wolf wants Violet, but her determination to keep them as just friends and business partners can only last so long. There are other forces at work as well. Just as Violet seems determined to hold out for her one true love, Nico’s past also catches up to him which forces Violet to confront his past chaos head on.
Violet and Nico tackle some big issues here. Nico fights some inner demons and stigma associated with werewolves while Violet spearheads a campaign that will ultimately set the whole Savoie gang on a new trajectory. Seeing the glimpses of what is hinted at to come for the rest of the Savoie sisters will leave you howling at the full moon in anticipation!
“She stared at me, that vulnerable look fading behind a cocky smile. It didn’t matter. I’d seen it, captured the moment, and stamped it on my heart. It was mine. Just like she was.”
Nico and Violet made me swoon! Nico is such a loving and steady presence for Violet. There is nothing more romantic than a man who knows what he wants and has the patience and confidence to wait for his woman to get her head in the game. Violet is such a lucky lady, and even though she held out until the last possible minute, when she gives in…she goes whole hog. Thank the stars! I think I saw literal fireworks with every scene between Nico and Violet. I’m never disappointed by Juliette Cross—the way she blends erotic scenes with over-the-top romance hits all the right buttons. I absolutely can say this is my favorite paranormal series hands down. The Stay a Spell series is now the benchmark for good PNR everywhere in my mind.
