Nikolai Gregorivich, a drop-dead gorgeous vampire cop on the trail of a serial killer.

I have never found a funny paranormal romance series that I like. "Funny" in PNR apparently means stupid, eye-rolling humor that I imagine very few people actually find amusing. Why do I keep picking them up, you ask? Because the covers are so frickin' cute! I'm a sucker for good cover art, always believing that the books will be just as enticing as those adorable covers. (I mean c'mon, look at the cover on this one! Spunky witch driving a convertible with her black fanged cat? I'll take two, pl...more

I liked "50 Ways to Hex Your Lover". The heroine, Jasmine, was someone I would love to go partying with, and the hero, Nikolai, was one hot vamp.

Jazz and Nik have a long history, 300 years or so worth. The problem is he keeps having her arrested, and then says he's only doing it to keep her safe! Jazz decided 30 years ago...No more Nik. So what the heck is her doing here now, and why is he asking for her help? Turns out an evil they thought they had eradicated in 1932 managed to get away, and it...more

2.5/5 but it was FREE, so that's cool.
This book could have been really good. As it is, it's just Okay.
The title has nothing to do with the story, other than a late library book. Yes, I said library book.

Jazz {Griet} is very selfish, bitchy and although sometimes she made me laugh, I was more irritated than anything else.

Nick could have been very cool. As it was, he just took whatever Jazz thew at him and was all "Ok, I'll just come back when you're ready" even though my vampire friends are miss...more

50 ways to Hex Your Lover is a hilarious first novel in the Jazz Tremaine series by Linda Wisdom.
The past few weeks, I was into Paranormal Romance & Paranormal Chick-lit. I came across this book after reading Would-Be Witch (A Southern Witch Novel, #1) by Kimberly Frost(which I loved!) After loving that book, I was afraid I would be disappointed with whatever I read next in that genre, but I was surprised. I really enjoyed it. And if your thinking, well if I enjoyed it so much, why did you...more

This book is currently FREE on Kindle. I haven't read it yet but a review will be posted once I get to it. But it may not still be free by then...

This may not last long. Get it HERE

Why do I do this to myself? I hated the only other Linda Wisdom book I've read for the same reason I already hate this one: the main character is a spoiled, petulant, childish bitch. We get a vague prologue in which we are vaguely informed bitchy witch "Jazz" was kicked out of Hogwarts 700 years ago, and then vague references throughout the book to Jazz and ex-lover Nick's vaguely checkered past. But Wisdom never bothers to fill in the blanks, other than to make sure we know in excruciating deta...more

If you're into Witches, Vampires && other spooks you may just like this book! It's about a witch who runs into her on again, off again for the past 300 years vampire lover looking for her help with a vampire serial murder case. She has a really witty && sarcastic sense of humor. It can be quiet funny. haha My favorite characters in the books were her bunny slippers Fluff n Puff. For a pair of slippers they get into a lot of trouble && have major anger management issues. l...more

Recommends it for: Buffy fans, Paranormal mystery or romance fans
More of a paranormal romantic suspense book rather than parnormal romance. Jaz is a witch, Nick a vampire who've been on again off again team up to find out why vampires are disappearing. A big bad worthy of Buffy, unfortunately the author doesn't expand the character as well as she could have through out the book, however does a nice job of making him truly loathsome when he finally does enter the picture at the end of the book.

Good characters, my favorites were the carnivorous bunny slippers f...more

Jazz an exiled witch tries her best to stay within the rules of her banishment. Life keeps throwing things at her that make her lose her patience and release a little more magic than she should. She takes it with a smirk and keeps living. he life is too busy to worry about what she can't change. She has a haunted car, vicious slippers and an ex love that is hotter than...well you know. She also has the stinky-est job ever. * Gross*

Can't believe am about to start another review with a cover rant, but yeah, this one does not do this book justice either! Nor does the title actually, but luckily, 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover by Linda Wisdom was a Kindle Freebie (oh-so-smart-move Publisher Person because now I'm hooked and I will buy the rest of the series), so it was easy to press the 'Buy' button.

This book is black, funny, wry, and felt as 'real' as a supernatural tale can feel in terms of relationships and dialogue. I liked th...more

This book was such a fun book to read! I loved all the comedy in it, especially the fluffy slippers!

Jazz Tremaine is a centuries old witch, working as a curse eliminator in the city. Her old vampire lover, Nick appears on the scene and she throws a few fireballs his way before threatening to stake him. Problem is he still drives her crazy and makes her wants to do naughty things with him! She loves him but also hates him with a passion. However he needs her help desperately and will do anything...more

The one thing I hate about the freebie books on Amazon is that they are always the first in a series so if you liked it, you have to buy the rest of the series!

In "50 Ways to Hex Your Lover", we meet Jazz, a 700-yr-old witch who was kicked out of the witch's school when she was younger, her vampire on-again, off-again lover, Nick, and the ghost that lives in her car, Irma. Nick has asked Jazz to help him track down a person who has been killing vampires, a man Jazz thought she had killed in the...more

I usually prefer a more realistic, down to earth, portrayal of witches (thinking practical magic), but once I first met Jazz and her toothsome slippers Fluff and Puff I was hooked. I love the backstory the author created, love the addition of a ghost sidekick, and think Jazz' dialogue with her car's spectral passenger is witty and funny.

If you like your romantic comedy with a sprinkle of the paranormal, and find vamp heroes yummy, you'll enjoy 50 Ways To Hex Your Lover.

Single caveat — the title...more

No Spoilers...

From the get go you knew that this was going to be a paranormal romantic comedy. Everything from the title, to the cover told you that much before you opened the book. It was also light and witty, and has a male lead that I wouldn't mind waving my wand at, yum, yum.

I found this to be a lovely, light and entertaining book to read.

What I didn't like: not a great deal really. The grammar was good with only a couple of hiccups along the way, and those I put down to the formatting of an...more

I liked this book. The main character Jazz is a tough witch who was banished to the mortal realm 700 years ago along with her classmates.
Nick is a very old vampire who is a private investigator. He's also been Jazz's lover for quite a few centuries. Off and on. Mostly off. They are seriously attracted to each other, but aren't always good for each other.
When Nick comes back in to Jazz's life to ask for her help on a case involving missing vampires, they are headed for trouble and each other.
Kevin Connery
Got a 4.5 rating at Amazon, but I couldn't finish it; gave up half-way. The writing was OK, but NONE of the characters were interesting enough to bother with, and the 'mystery' wasn't either.
Kathy (Kindle-aholic)
This one was a quick read, with crazy characters (who doesn't want a pair of killer bunny slippers?) a witch and a vampire. It was enjoyable enough, fast-paced, and kept my attention.
Amanda
good book. i really enjoyed reading this one. you got a little bit of everything...comedy, sex, and action.
Sabrina
This book was fun to read and quite light hearted. From the blurb I was expecting an action packed story but felt it was a bit slow at the beginning. When things did start to progress it was intriguing and had me wanting to find out what was going to happen next.
Jazz is a feisty witch with strong opinions and a lot of sarcasm and I grew to like her character. I think Nick came across as quite weak willed and I wasn’t that taken with his character to start with as I normally prefer the Alpha mal...more

Jazz is a witch, she and her sisters have been banished to live with humans for a magical transgression hundreds of years ago, and every time they breach the magical laws their sentence gets extended, Jazz is starting to believe she will never go back. She makes a living removing curses and driving a limo for supernatural people. Nick is a vampire who works as a private investigator. Nick and Jazz have had an on and off relationship for about 300 years - mostly off. She always ends up getting ma...more
Shh I'm reading!
Jazz is a centuries old witch and Nick is her on again, off again vampire boyfriend. After decades apart, they come together when vampires start disappearing. Naturally sparks start flying...
The book was recommended to me by several, and definitely seemed up my alley. Quip ready heroine, handsome vampire, humorous writing, count me in! I had really high expectations for this book, and feel a little disappointed because I was so excited. It was definitely a funny supernatural romance with a cast...more
Amanda Croley
This was a cute book, and cheap on kindle! My only real issue was the way she ended her spells. Instead of the typical 'so mote it be', or whatever, she says 'because I say so damn it'. I like the personal twist, but that was just annoying. Jazz is a several hundred year old witch. As a child, she and several of her witch friends were banished from the witch school, for cursing a human or something. Now anytime she uses magic for selfish, evil, or any other purpose except for good, she has time...more
Sharal Hunter
With 50 Ways To Hex Your Lover, new to me author Linda Wisdom introduces her series starring a feisty witch named Jazz and a vampire named Nick who have been in an on then off relationship for several hundred years. Unfortunately, most of it has not been good and the last time Jazz and Nick were together several decades ago, he had her arrested. Understandably, Jazz is a tad cranky when she and Nick cross paths. He is definitely the last person, dead or alive, she wants to deal with and I was gi...more

It took too long to get going. There was no interesting romantic relationship development. Some side characters were good.

STORY BRIEF:
Witches, vampires, werewolves, trolls, and other creatures live among humans. Jazz is a witch. She makes a living removing curses and driving a limo. Nick is a vampire who works as a private investigator. Nick and Jazz have had a lustful on and off relationship for about 300 years – mostly off. She frequently gets mad at him. Someone is killing vampires, and Nick...more

This first book in the Jazz Tremaine series by Linda Wisdom has sat on my TBR pile since it first came out in 2008 and again, it was the quirky cover art that originally drew my attention. What can I say, I’m a book magpie…flashy/showy covers get my attention. The cover art is somewhat misleading though, there's no cat in the story or a coffin for that matter either. After finishing the book yesterday, I was sorry I’d waiting so long to read it. Words I’d use to describe this series: fun, cute,...more

Review by Cassandra from Book Talk

My Thoughts
This is an entertaining read. I loved all the characters and their own quirks. Jazz is a sassy witch who finds trouble every way she turns. One of her newest problems is in the form of her hunky ex-lover Nick. Nick is a sexy vampire who believes their lives are meant to keep crossing. He also needs Jazz's help with vampire business. Unfortunately for Nick, Jazz is not too happy to see him. Let's just say fire and stakes are involved in their less than...more
Jen
This is a fun read. The storyline is cute, the characters are interesting, and the book is full of personality. Jazz is spunky but tough, and Nick is a gorgeous hero. I love that he supports Jazz and is willing to back down and give her space even when he knows she's just being difficult. Even the supporting characters are fun. Jazz's boss Dweezil has skin the color of an olive. He collects antique sex toys and he smells like burnt almonds when he's angry. One of Jazz's clients is a creature tha...more

I'm a multi-published author since 1979 and now writing paranormal romance or what I like to call witch lit. 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover came out this past March and Hex Appeal comes out in November with Halloween promotion and will also be carried in Target.

My witch series has also been optioned to be shopped around as a TV series or movie. So here's hoping!
