or maybe 2.5 stars, but the GR description of "it was ok" is about right.

"jazz" is a witch (of the 'bewitched' wiggle-your-nose-and-poof sort, no complicated spell-craft here) with a job as a chauffeur for supernatural types and a side business in removing curses. her on-again-off-again vampire lover shows up in town to ask for her help in finding out why so many vampires are going missing lately.

you know this is a romance novel because of the cute cartoon cover, so it's no surprise when the pair end up nekkid together, and that sort of predictability is par for the course: on the whole this book feels like it was assembled by committee. a brotherly house-mate and a pair of witches jazz visits on weekend retreat (none of which move the plot forward at all) serve as a scooby gang. a pair of bunny slippers that attack everything on the floor and a ghost cursed into her car serve as the wacky sidekicks/cute pets. an all-talk blowhard is a totally one-dimensional villain, with no nuance or complexity. and of COURSE our heroine is super-sexy & super-powerful, of COURSE our hero provides her with the most mindblowing sex possible, and of COURSE there has to be some trumped-up reason to delay their inevitable final get-together.

got it for free for kindle, and it was a pleasant way to pass a plane ride, but it's utterly disposable.

Jazz has been in the world a long time. She and her class mates were dismissed from Witches Academy and sentenced to make her way in the world. Right now she is making ends meet by driving for a supernatural limo service and removing curses for people. But when her long lost love, and sexy vampire, Nick, comes back into her life Jazz is drawn into an investigation that brings back bad memories and places Nick and Jazz in grave danger.This book was fun. Jazz and the cast of supporting characters are really just that, characters. It takes a couple of minutes to get into the world but once you are there just hold on for the ride. I plan to read the next book in the series.

Fun and a good read. I'm not a fan of vampire stories, but this one is more a witch tale than a vampire story. I thought the ending was a bit rushed, but other than that, it was great.

For my #15 challenge ('W' Word For Winter), I read 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover by Linda Wisdom. Jasmine Tremaine is a thoroughly modern 700-year-old witch who can't seem to shake Nick Gregory, her vampire ex-lover from 30 years ago. Nick is a darkly handsome cop who can push all Jazz's buttons.Even with all their history together, Jazz and Nick can't forget the passion they have together and are ultimately drawn together again as a malevolent wizard-turned serial killer targets vampires and especially, Jazz Tremaine. They will need all the help they can get from Jazz's super-computer-geek room mate, Krebs, Dweezil, Jazz's ghoul of a boss, Fluff and Puff - rabid bunny slippers - and Irma - a chain-smoking ghost who inhabits Jazz's sports car. I really enjoyed this book, the characters were very funny and touching. I give this book an A+!

This is not my genre but the book was ok. It kept me entertained. The main heroine Jazz had too much of a bad attitude for my liking. I did like Irma and the bunny slippers!

Fun little Rom-Com that just happens to be about a witch and a vampire.

It was a fun story but to much sex details. Jazz is a 700 year old witch who lifts curses of people and things. jazz also drives a limo. Nick is a vampire PI. he and jazz have been lovers over the years and break up when to protect her he gets her arrested many times. Something is making vampires disapear was a few a month than a few each week. Nick thinks it has to do with a old horror star who attacked jazz 70 years ago and she kill him. So Jazz tries to distance from nick but they fall into old habits. i enjoyed it.

Jazz is a witch, trying to make her way in the world after being banished several centuries ago. Nick is a vampire, and recently left his job with the vampire ruling body to become an independent investigator. Although witches and vampires tend to avoid each other, Jazz and Nick have a volatile past, where their love is intertwined with fearsome arguments. When their past comes back in the form of Clive Reeves, Jazz and Nick are reunited once again. They must survive each other, and Clive, to save the world.I was completely charmed by this book. While it was predictable, it was fast paced. The suspense was intermixed with the delightful characters (would a pair of voracious bunny slippers ordinarily be considered a character? They were reminiscent of a certain Monty Python bunny, but in slipper form. Unexpected and welcome in this story!) Even the less-than-savory characters were well written and unique, even if they were relatively two-dimensional. The back story between Nick and Jazz was revealed when necessary, and not just dumped on the reader. This was a fun way to spend a rainy day!

I actually hate giving this book 3 stars because I whole heartedly believe in the potential of the series. The world-building, the setting, the mythology use-it's all very intriguing. But this book fell short. Chapel became a vampire when he drank from a mystical cup known as the Blood Grail, having mistaken it for the Holy Grail. Six hundred years later, in the year 1899, Pru Ryeland is searching for the Holy Grail in hopes of curing her terminal illness. Chapel fears that what she will actually find is the Blood Grail and that she will become cursed as he believes he is cursed. But as he begins to fall in love with Pru, his belief in his own soul-less nature is challenged. The use of history and mythology is fun, interesting, and well put together. The time period and setting is rich and unique, and in fact is one of the few things that sets this book apart from other paranormal writings. Chapel is a surprisingly sexy, if somewhat frustrating character. He is loyal, determined, and fun. His love for Pru is heartbreaking. First of all, Pru's terminal illness is-it's never given an exact name, so I assume uterine cancer-the biggest plot point/conflict in the book. I am not at all making light of cancer but it's presence in the story is,dare I say, drawn out to the point of dull? We expect her to be saved, obviously, whether she finds the Holy Grail or becomes a vampire. But it takes THE ENTIRE BOOK. We are forced to watch Chapel hem, haw, and struggle with his own self-pity while the love of his life suffers unnecessary pain. And Pru's cancer is a seriously painful one. I don't know how well Smith researched the disease but I happen to know from what I've witnessed that 1)Even early stage cancer patients are often exhausted, suffer from easy bruising, and tend to have compromised immune systems, and 2) The physical reality of advanced uterine cancer does not usually allow for any kind of comfortable sexual relationship. So the fact that Pru is so active right up until the very end is seriously problematic. Despite all of this, I still have high hopes for the series. While I did not care for the terminal illness plot-line, I enjoyed Smith's style and imagination.

This was a cute story. There was lots of humor and lots of romance. I liked the wide cast of characters and the personalities and descriptions of each. (Although on the back cover, it says that the ghost in Jazz's car is named Norma, but in the actual book, the ghost's name is Irma..hmm).
