Something Wicked by Robin Moray

This is truly a little gem. Quick, super sweet and with an unpredictable (in most ways) plot containing witches, a warlock and a witch-hunter.

It might be the ultimate enemies-to-lovers scenario; Kevin is a witch – albeit a very weak one – and Peter is the witch-hunter who arrives in Kevin’s hometown hunting for a witch who murdered his mentor. And they are immediately drawn to each other. Peter thinks all witches are evil, but Kevin can’t stay away. He doesn’t really even want to. Meanwhile, Kevin’s siblings (a.k.a. his coven) is trying to find the warlock who appears to kill other witches within their territory. With all the magic activity going on, it’s only a matter of time until Peter will discover Kevin’s secret.

So yeah. This is an adorable story that just made me happy. It is very short however, and displays some novella characteristics. There’s the jump right into action without a proper backstory, there’s the fast pace, and there’s the very limited character development. But the story is so utterly delightful, those things doesn’t really matter. And I enjoyed this read immensely.

Usually I like my books to be more raunchy, and the man-lovin’ in Something Wicked was mostly sweet, but for this story it was perfect.

I just wished this book had been longer.

Highly recommend.

I'm a Swedish book nerd reading mostly steamy English romance novels. And since there is so much good stuff out there, and so much shitty stuff too. I just want to give credit where it's due (and diss the rest).
