Whatnots & Doodads is a sexy little tale about a witch who's Earth elemental powers are a bit wonky and a demon who's chosen to be good. Bryanna has had it. She's sick of her magic, her crap boyfriend, and she's taken off for who knows where. One thing after another goes wrong along the way and she finds herself stranded until Zeke, a demon and Jacinda, a fae show up and offer her a ride. Bryanna, feeling she has nothing left to lose, hops in. They take her to Strange Hollow, which turns o ...more

Whatnots & Doodads is a cute and sexy story, but then again who wouldn’t want to read about a demon gone good and falling for a witch whose magic is on the fritz. I enjoyed the characters along with the town set up. Stacey could turn this into a series if she wishes later on. It would be neat to see what kind of misfits she could put together in this town.

I liked both Zeke and Bryanna; I just wish they had a little bit more time together. I recommend this to anyone who needs a quick hot nov

One of my pet peeves with the paranormal romance genre isn’t the fact that the darkest, most sinister monsters from mythology are so often defanged, but that the domestication is done so casually, and without comment. That’s where my love for Whatnots and Doodads – and, by extension, the shared world of Strange Hollow – begins.

Here, Stacey presents us with a paranormal romance full of mythological monsters, all of whom are fully aware of their outcast nature. In fact, the lovely little town of S

Bryanna is a witch with a unique problem. Her magical powers don’t seem to work in the way she wants it to. When she wants to conjure up a change of clothes she gets a jar of skin cream instead. Her attempt at making a flower grow yields a cheetah-print chair instead. “Whatnots & doodads” is what she calls the odd objects that appear when she calls forth her earth magic. Cast out by her wealthy family for her magical deficiency, she finds herself a

Whatnots & Doodads is a little story by Stacey Kennedy and it is super cute. Bryanna is an Earth Witch, but her magic is broken. When she calls upon her element to try to conjure something, what she actually gets is nothing like what she wanted. Not even close. She gets what she calls whatnots and doodads. When she runs away from her coven, she ends up in Strange Hollow. This is a little village that welcomes everyone who is “damaged” without

Title Thoughts: Fits the novella so perfectly.
Cover Thoughts: I really like it. I'm going to take the SH in the left corner for Strange Hollow, where it's set. I love what she's wearing because it's exactly like an outfit she wears.
WARNINGS: Three words: Very. Hot. Sex.

This may have been only 52 pages, but it felt like a full-fledged book. Kennedy did a fantastic job with all of the characters. They were fully developed and I loved all of them. Whatnots and Doodads holds some laugh-out-loud mome

Bryanna is an earth witch whose magic never quite works the ways she wants. She has been living a life of sorrow. Her parents wrote her off when she turned 18 and her "ex" boyfriend, Layton, lied to her and was only after her money. Bryanna decides its better to just leave and start over someplace new. But when that starts in disaster Zeke comes to her rescue.

Zeke is a demon, a "good" demon. He gave up his old life, taking souls for Satan, because he wanted to save souls instead. Zeke takes Brya

I am not familiar with Stacey Kennedy's work but if Whatnots & Doodads are an example of it, then I can say "where do I get more?" I absolutely LOVED this book! And to be honest, it was way too short, it should have been probably another two hundred pages or so! When I started it, I could not put it down, and when it hit me it was only 47 pages long, I felt my heart sink! I never want the story of the 'broken' witch Bryanna and the 'mushy' demon Zeke to
My review cross-posted from Joyfully Reviewed:

Bryanna is an Earth Witch whose magic never works properly. She’s used to people – particularly her controlling boyfriend – looking down on her for the whatnots and doodads that pop up whenever she tries to conjure something. Then Bryanna finds herself in Strange Hollow, a town where the unusual is the norm. That strangeness includes Zeke, a demon who has renounced evil. The sexy demon seems determined to conv

Byanna has been an outcast all of her life. A witch whose magic only leads to whatnots and doodads (aka: odds and ends) leaves her the black sheep in not just her coven, but life. She makes peace with it because she has one person she can rely on, her boyfriend Layton. But when she realizes that he is only after her money, she makes the biggest decision of her life - to run away from it all. All alone, she doesn't know what to do until a chance encounter

Mmmmmm....Zeke......wanna talk about a seriously hot demon?! Damn!

Tall, dark & dangerous?! Yes please!
Though he is a demon who has turned his life around, Bryanna is still not sure about him. She's been pushed aside & cast out her entire life, so when Zeke actual wants her you can see their passion grow & become something RED HOT!

There are so many elements that I loved about this novella!
Mainly how it was an erotica piece, but they story & characters had depth to them. I can't t

The cover defiantly depicts whats inside this read. Bryanna is a witch and an outcast by her kind. Instead of weaving magic of the magical kind she creates Whatnot and Doodads.

In the town of Sleepy Hollow where the outcasts all live, from Vampires, to Goblins, ghosts and a world of the Paranormal Byranna meets Demon Zeke.

Zeke convinces Bryanna she is worthwhile and shows her in which direction her life could take her, live with her magic or hide away. This story is filled with humours moments

I have never read anything by Stacey Kennedy, but after reading this novella, I will be seeking out her other offerings. I really enjoyed Whatnots and Doodads. This little story has a lot packed into it: sexy supernatural beings, hot steamy loves scenes and laugh out loud humor. Strange Hollow is a place I would love to visit. What would be better than a place with misfit supernatural beings, where you are not judged and can be yourself? The chemistry between Zeke and Bryanna leaps off the pages ...more

I liked this book although it was short, it tells us Bryanna's story, Bryanna is an insecure witch who's powers just don't work in the way she wants them to (they actually work in a great way in my opinion) running away from her past she meets Jacinda and Zeke both of who live in Strange Hollow, a really cool town for outcasts (I could totally see myself living there) and of course it helps that Zeke is unavailably hot and sweet with Bryanna even if he is a demon, but acts like a knight in a shi ...more

This was a really charming short story. Bryanna had no self esteem thanks to her butt munch boyfriend Layton, and her snarky fellow witches from the powerful Asheville coven. Giving it all up for Lent, she takes off for parts unknown. With her luck running true to form, she ends up broken down on the side of the road in the high reaches of the Appalachins.Zeke is a demon turned good who wants to help Bryanna find her true worth.

Stacey sent me another book to review and I swear all her books are just completely awesome!!! I was sorry to this one so short. It had an amazing story with a witch who doesn't fit in and runs away only to find a place of all sorts of other paranormal misfits. And here she finds a man who actually seems to accept her as she is. And I am super glad she did. We have a witch who makes whatnots and doodads and a soul sucking demon gone good, and together they make sparks fly like whoa!!

A wickedly good read. I loved it. It contains a solid message of accepting and caring about yourself. It does contain some awesomely written erotica so it is a novella for adults. A more complete review may be found on my blog.

I absolutely love this book! It is a very quick read but the story is wonderful. If you ever need a pick me up from a bad day or feel the need to be perfect and normal like everyone else, read this book. The message of loving yourself for who is are can never been mentioned enough.
