Book Review: Protecting His Witch by Zoe Forward + giveaway

Protecting His Witch (a Keepers of the Veil novel)
By Zoe Forward
Length: 250 pages

The last thing he wanted was to fall for a witch...

Veterinarian Kat Ramsey hasn't a clue that she's a witch. Sure, she can read minds, and there's the whole "dimension-hopping" issue that she can't quite control, but Kat is determined to keep things normal. That is, until she accidentally hops into the Otherworld, and runs smack into Matthew Ryan―the seriously hot one-night stand from years ago who shoved her out of his dorm. Naked.

And there's the tiny matter of the curse she gave him.

May you never find satisfaction with another woman. Billionaire and former druid Matthew Ryan hasn't forgotten the curse, or the witch who gave it to him. Kat's unexpected return means the curse will finally be broken. Unfortunately, his libido has other ideas―like how to get her back into his bed one last time. But far more worrying is his suspicion that Kat is the seventh Pleiades witch. Because while he's turned his back on his druidic ways, he's still bound to protect the woman who made his life hell...

This is a fast, hot read, for those that enjoy some steamy romance and paranormal elements. At 200 pages, you can read this tale in a lazy afternoon. I enjoyed the bits of paranormal witchy-world that were shared, the take on this type of lore and legend was fun. It would have been nice to get more details on the topics overall, but for the page count you get a lot crammed in.

I personally did not find many redeming qualities with the lead male Matthew. He was not in any way a man I could see a decent woman falling for. He cheats numerous times and is so overly full of himself, it was a complete and total turn off. Adding to all that the lack of backbone that Kat has against Matthew and his "charms" and it was just too much for my tastes in males.

Plus Kat had a vet job but you never read about her actually doing said job. More focus was on her ballroom dancing skills and maybe the author should have just made her career a dancer instead. If she was meant to seem smart, witty and well educated, it didn't translate.

Overall, there was enough in the story itself to keep me reading. The steamy chemistry between the pair was off the charts, if the only thing they had was awesome sex....then there it is!

  1. Hi Sharon I love fast reads especially if there's a steamy romance involved and paranormal just adds to it. Thanks

  2. Ahhh cheating. Yup that's a no go for me. Thanks for the heads up. Damn shame seeing it's got such an amazing cover. Ah well.

  3. Like Debbie I enjoy fast & steamy reads but sad to hear that the characters sound underwhelming. I'd read it if I won it but not sure I'd buy it now. Thx!

  4. I agree with this review except I couldn't bring myself to finish it. It really had sooo much potential. :(

    I wanted to scream - yes,I get it. She is a vet, you keep telling me that.
