Jazz can’t decide whether to scorch him with a fireball or jump into bed with him.

Jasmine Tremaine, a witch who can’t stay out of trouble. Nikolai Gregorivich is a vampire cop on the trail of a serial killer. The sizzling love affair between Jazz and Nick has been off-again, on-again for about 300 years. Mostly off, lately. But now Nick needs Jazz’s help, and while Jazz and Nick try to figure out their own hearts and resist their ever-increasing attraction, they must steer clear of a maniacal killer with super-supernatural powers. They are surrounded by a hilarious cast of oddball paranormal characters, including Norma, the chain-smoking ghost who haunts Jazz’s sports car, Dweezil, her ghoul of a boss, and Fluff and Puff, a pair of bunny slippers with sharp teeth and short tempers (watch your ankles)!

My Thoughts:

Snazzy and sassy Jazz Tremaine is a charmingly strong character. Wisdom did a great job in creating Jazz who is a witch, and a pretty powerful one at that. While Jazz can only use her Witch powers for good, when her on-again off again vampire boyfriend shows up again after 30 years she just can’t resist trying to singe him with a fireball. Jazz is a very fleshed out character. I had no questions about her personality, her likes or dislikes.

Wisdom also peppers this book with many colorful and interesting characters and ceatures that had me chuckling to myself. Some I could picture with such clarity like Irma, the ghost that is cursed to ride in her beloved car forever. Also Fluff and Puff, her two bunny slippers that will eat and destroy anything in sight. Wisdom definitley has a unique way of describing things to stimulate your minds eye and imagination. But there was one character who I was left wanting to know more about. Nick, Jazz’s sexy cop boyfriend is shrouded in mystery and there isn’t much to tell of his past. But I guess maybe that was done on purpose since there are other books in this series. So I look forward to finding out more about him in the books to follow.

The story as a whole was enteratining. I loved Jazz cause she was such a strong, take no crap, no nonsense type of gal. She also has a big heart and really cares about the people around her. She has such a fiery spirit and I love that there was some sparring, if you will, between her and the love interest. That always makes for a better love story for me. You can almost literallly see sparks when there is some back and forth and the chemistry is undeniable no matter how much they want to.

By the end of the book Jazz has really learned how to push through and harness her power, which is gratifying. I look forward to reading the rest of the series and Jazz’s other adventures with the handsome Nick.

My Rating:
