Could it possibly get any worse than having absolutely no magical abilities when you’re a member of the most powerful family of witches ever? It used to be that I’d say no, but then I keep getting set up on dates with Gil Connolly whose hotness is only matched by his ego. Seriously. I can’t stand him. Even if I also can’t stop thinking about him (specifically kissing him) but we’re going to pretend I never told you that part.
So yeah, my life isn’t the greatest right now, but then it goes straight to the absolute worst hell when I accidentally make my sister’s spell glitch and curse my whole family. And the only person who can help non-magical me break the spell? You guessed it. Gil the super hot jerk.
Now we have to work together to save my family and outmaneuver some evil-minded nefarious forces bent on world domination. Oh yeah, and we have to do all that while fighting against the attraction building between us because I may not be magical, but what’s happening between Gil and I sure feels like it.
Title: Witcha Gonna Do? (Witchington, #1)
Author: Avery Flynn
Publication Date: December 6, 2022
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance
This book had lots of potential but missed the mark just a smidge for me. It was good. Not great.
I liked the world and think there were lots of funny moments to it. Having a grumpy unicorn shape-shifter was so funny. Plus, the world was interesting. It was a lot to introduce in book one, but that’s just how book one’s are in a new series.
I also liked that this was written in such a way that it was like Tilda and Gil were relating the story to the reader. It was kinda like reading from a journal or something. It made it more personal and a little funnier.
This book was written in dual pov which, surprisingly enough, didn’t suit this book well. I truly think having single pov of only Tilda, the FMC, instead of Tilda and Gil, would have contributed to making this book better. For one, their thoughts sounded the same instead of them feeling like two distinct people. The way they acted felt distinct, but their thoughts were not. Plus, Gil was keeping a lot of secrets and I think those secrets would have been kept better and added to the suspense and slow burn by not having his pov.
Overall, this was an okay read. I think it could have been done better, but I didn’t hate it.
