Danica Waterhouse is a fully modern witch―daughter, granddaughter, cousin, and co-owner of the Fix-It Witches, a magical tech repair shop. After a messy breakup that included way too much family ""feedback,"" Danica made a pact with her cousin: they'll keep their hearts protected and have fun, without involving any of the overly opinionated Waterhouse matriarchs. Danica is more than a little exhausted navigating a long-standing family feud where Gram thinks the only good mundane is a dead one and Danica's mother weaves floral crowns for anyone who crosses her path.
Three blocks down from the Fix-It Witches, Titus Winnaker, owner of Sugar Daddy's bakery, has family trouble of his own. After a tragic loss, all he's got left is his sister, the bakery, and a lifetime of terrible luck in love. Sure, business is sweet, but he can't seem to shake the romantic curse that's left him past thirty and still a virgin. He's decided he's doomed to be forever alone.
But then he meets Danica Waterhouse. The sparks are instant; their attraction, irresistible. For him, she's the one. To her, he's a firebomb thrown in the middle of a family war. Can a modern witch find love with an old-fashioned mundane who refuses to settle for anything less than forever?
I had a lot of fun with this book! I have had some luck with this author’s work in the past, although with another genre, so I was eager to give this romance a try. I found this audiobook easy to listen to for hours at a time. I am so glad that I decided to pick up this incredibly entertaining audiobook.
Danica is a witch. She has the ability to fix just about anything so she puts her skills to good use in the fix-it shop that she runs with her cousin. Titus runs a bakery just a couple of blocks from the Fix-It Witches shop and he stops in for some help when one of his ovens. These two are instantly drawn to each other and they have a lot of chemistry. There is one problem that might keep them apart – Danica will lose her magic if she marries a regular mortal. Danica is under intense pressure from her grandmother to get matched up with a man with magic but her mother just wants to see her happy.
I really liked the characters in this book. Danica and Titus were both dealing with some pretty big family issues. Seeing how they handled everything helped to develop their characters. I thought that they were a very good match and the chemistry between them was rather intense. I was invested in their relationship early on and really wanted to see them find a way to make it work. I also thought that the secondary characters were very well done and added a lot to the story.
Ava Lucas did a fantastic job with the narration. I thought that she did a phenomenal job with all of the character voices and added a lot of emotion to the story. I found her voice to be very pleasant and I had no problem listening for hours at a time. I think that this was the first time that I had the chance to listen to this narrator’s work but I hope to have the chance again soon.
I would recommend this book to others. I thought that this was a well-done romance with wonderful characters and just the right amount of magic mixed in. I look forward to reading more of this promising series.
