Review: Witches Anonymous by Misty Evans

Title: Witches Anonymous 
Author: Misty Evans
Genre: Paranormal Romance 
Number of Pages: 105
Publisher: Samhain

Amy Atwood is a witch. Not the harm-none kind…the Satan-worshipping, devil-made-me-do-it kind. But after catching Lucifer in a particularly wicked hex act with her goodie-two-shoes Wiccan sister, Amy does what every self-respecting witch would do. She pops a Dove chocolate in her mouth, ends her affair with the devil, and swears an oath never to use magic again. She wants to be normal. Human. Even if it means no more fun—and she’s looking for a nice, normal guy to complement her new lifestyle. And ice-cream-loving firefighter Adam Foster looks like perfect hero material. Lucifer, however, isn’t about to be nice about letting her go. Stalked by Satan, manipulated by the angel Gabriel—and surprised by Adam’s true identity—Amy finds herself up to her black hat in trouble of Biblical proportions… Warning: Welcome to temptation. Sexy Lucifer is going to enchant you. The original Adam is going to charm you. And the angel Gabriel is going to scare your socks off! (from goodreads) 

I found this cute novella completely by chance at Amazon when I bought Allegra Fairweather: Paranormal Investigator by Janni Nell.  This was one of the books at the bottom of the screen in the area that said books you might liked. I clicked on it and thought this would be a cute Halloween read. I was not disappointed! 

This novella is perfect for those days when you want to read something light and fun. Amy tries so hard to be good, but things keep getting in her way. Little her sister being possessed, Luc interfering in her love life, and trying to save her witches anonymous group from the evil angel Gabriel even though they think she's a bit off her kilter. Adam is totally worth giving into temptation for, and I never thought I'd say I would be cheering for Lucifer in a book, but I did in this one! He tries so hard to win Amy back, and you almost feel bad for the guy with how mean Amy is until you remember who he is and what he did to make her so mad! 

The ending is pretty predictable, but despite that I found myself laughing out loud a lot, and enjoying all the characters in this novella. I really can't wait to read more by Misty Evans. (This was also the second book that got out of my book funk, so I will be forever grateful to it!)
