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 always say that three star reads are the ones that make give me the worst book slumps . . . I say this because it's true. I know a lot of you are shaking your heads and thinking, why the hell would a book with a good rating give you a worst slump then, say, a one star read? Or a DNF? I can explain. A three star read is an “okay” book, a book that I liked but didn’t love. It’s a book that is so freaking hard to review because you can’t fin

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

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

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

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

Linda Wisdom, aka Linda Randall Wisdom, is one of those authors who, after reading a couple of her books, I began collecting everything I could find of hers. I've had this book on my Kindle app since 2011, but hadn't gotten around to reading it, partly because I just so much prefer to read a physical book over digital, and partly because I was just a tiny bit put off by the book being a paranormal romance. For awhile that's all I was reading and I got a little burned out on the genre, especially ...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

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

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

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

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

Can't do better than 3stars for it.

I liked it but didn't love it. Humor is a strange thing doesn't get everyone the same way. Some of the umor worked well for me and some fell flat. I really enjoyed the secondary characters -- more than the leads. First of a series is tricky because there is so much world building that needs to be done. I hand to concentrate to keep going as this didn't flow as well as I thought it should.

Perhaps I'll read the second book before making a judgement about the se

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.

The book starts in the year 1313 with thirteen young witches banished to the mortal world because one of them cursed a mortal and wouldn't confess.

Jazz Tremaine is one of that group. The year is 2007, and the group hasn't been forgiven yet. Jazz works on removing curses from people. She drives a neat car that, unfortunately, comes with a ghost named Irma. She's also confronting a guy who wanted a curse removed and then tried to cheat her out of her payment.

Not a good thing to do to a witch. (It

The story was fine and I enjoyed it, more so as I got further into the book, but I felt the author "told rather than showed" too much and over explained things. On the other hand I liked Irma, Fluff, and Puff. I think I would enjoy this more as an audiobook narrated by someone who can do all the voices.

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.

This is my first Paranormal book, and hence Paranormal romance. Let me just begin by saying - this novel has nothing to do with a female trying to hex her lover. That is only referenced once and it has to do with a library book, but I digress.
This novel is about Jazz, a witch who was cast out of the academy along with her 2 friends.. There is a sexy vamp called Nick who has known jazz for a few centuries. He returns and asks her for help in finding out why Vamps are disappearing. Their quest to

This book looked awesome and the reviews made me run out and purchase it on a recent trip to the mall. Unfortunately, I felt let down. The plot seems interesting enough. Jazz is a witch cast out to live among humans for some slightly vague reason. She has been having a love/hate and off/on relationship with a vampire for hundreds of years. The vampire hero was boring in my opinion and I never really felt him or the relationship between this vampire and the witch. Jazz was humorous. She had a big ...more

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

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!
