Both have vowed not to date until they get themselves under control, but a witchy friend thinks differently. The pair get tricked into sharing a frosty pitcher of “Hoodoo Blue” and fall prey to a wayward love potion that has them blurting out every lustful thought. Worse, it won’t allow them to walk away from each other. They’re stuck together until dawn under the devilish effects of a time-released hoodoo that makes them do outrageous things. For everyone’s safety, Fredi is forced to take Gus home and tie him to her headboard and only some very witchy lovemaking can calm the storm.
Fredi and Gus might find themselves on the set-up date from hell, but even a hilarious cascade of disasters can’t keep a plus-sized blonde witch with attitude, and a hunky lumberjack of a lycan from seeing the other would be the perfect mate.
Fredi the witch has a somewhat unique problem and it's having dire consequences on her now nonexistent love life. A well meaning friend tricks her into a blind date but we all know how badly they can go! The guy in question is Gus, a Lycan, but it's the full moon and that poses a huge problem for Gus. Now all this is enough to wreck their meeting but add in a certain pitcher of a magically infused cocktail and it's truly a recipe for disaster!
From the first page Fredi is written as such an engaging and caring heroine. She came to life in my mind as such a charming and funny character and I easily warmed to her. This is a woman who knows who she is and is unafraid to embrace all that it entails. Her recent problems aside, she still lives her life true to what she believes. From the first encounter between this couple it's very obvious that Gus would really, really like to get to know Fredi much better but as the night progresses how much is real chemistry and just how much is the Hoodoo Blue?
Fredi may harbour reservations but Gus is a strong male who believes in grabbing his opportunity. I loved that he has a sensitive side and is not written as a cave man but a man that could really take the time to woo his very lucky lady. Yes, it gets steamy but Hoodoo Blue is a quick fun read full of humour. Ms Leon cleverly starts with a scene involving kittens and then just before the epilogue, she reprises the idea in such a sweet manner. Well done Ms Leon for such an engaging read even if poor Gus had to suffer embarrassing uncontrolled shifting (absolutely hysterical!) and I look forward to more of your writing with its mixture of humour and heat.
