Erica is a plus sized human mechanic that is skilled at her job. Surprised with a broken down Ferrari, and a rich playboy, Erica has a challenge on her hands. Add in that her shop isn't seeing as much business as it needs to and the business it does see has mysterious issues popping up gives Erica a lot to deal with. I liked Erica's character, but she does need to stand up for herself more. Her sister takes advantage of her and isn't the nicest person. Erica just kind of takes it rather than stand up for herself.

Drew Haizea is an Air witch that is coddled in every bit of his life. His mother is tired of him being a deadbeat and marks him as a rogue which allows other witches to kill him on sight, though few would dare. Without the rogue status being lifted, Drew must man up and dodge the assassins that are out to get him. I was intrigued to see if he could put aside his selfishness and help someone else, his character seemed like he would take the easy way out.

While this is book two in the series, this can be read as a standalone. I'm a fan of witch stories, so I thought it was unique that the male was the witch while the female was human. Toss in that the main character being plus sized makes this story different from the others in this genre. I love ABreton's writing, if you're a fan of paranormal books with romance you'll enjoy Sweetly Bad.

  3. the witch part caught me off guard! Did not realize that was coming during the first paragraph but sounds interesting. I am with you, Erica sounds like she needs a back-bone.

  4. I love Erika! My only critique is I wish Anya did a little recap on the myth about the witches since this can be read as stand-alone.

  5. Whoa his mama is hardcore! Dang! Love that she's got some meat on her and is a mechanic. That's so awesome. I've not read her before so thanks for the intro!

  6. This sounds good, I have a weakness for witches as well. Adding it to my wishlist even though it is Ellora's Cave.

  7. it's nice to read we can read out of order. I confess I didn't expect a bout about witches with this kind of cover but it sounds nice.
