Something Witchy This Way Comes
Book 1 of Series
"Of course, when a guy looked like Hayden, girls could be pretty stupid with forgiveness."
Tessa has enough to deal with between her little sister and her completely detached parents. What she doesn't need is the school player to be assigned as her bodyguard to protect her from unknown evil. She's not special, is she? Apparently she is - because Tessa is a witch. While learning of her powers, she will be faced with choosing sides among her sorcerer peers. But Tessa keeps getting distracted by the ever-hot Hayden. Hayden has never seen a need to commit to one girl, and despite accepting this babysitting job - he doesn't see any reason for that to change. That is, until Tessa starts invading his every thought. Why can't he get her out of his mind? And what will happen when he gets sucked into her world in a way he had never imagined? Can he commit to just one girl? And will they survive long enough to find out?
My Opinion: This was a well written, good young adult book. Delving into the world of teenagers, it brought on feelings of teenage frustrations and hormones despite the forced maturity of the characters. The paranormal world of witches and sorcerers were believable and well thought out. Tessa was a fabulous character who played a good balance between excited teenager and newly discovered witch. Hayden's character showed great growth and development. Their romance was hot and heavy without going over the line - which left you with a heady blush, but without any embarrassment. Good side characters flushed out the story with interactions and thickening the plot. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book.
