That Voodoo You Do (That Old Black Magic #1)
Something dead this way comes-
That Old Black Magic, Book 1
For ten long years Griffin Trudeau has managed to keep his paws off Jemma Finnegan, best friend and leading star of his kinkiest fantasies. As her appointed cat familiar, indulging those fantasies with the delectable witch is strictly forbidden. But when Jemma shows up at his door with seduction in mind, control...more
You only have to read the synopsis to know that this book is out of my normal reading comfort zone. In fact, I'm pretty sure this was my first book with a threesome. But if I'm going to do a threesome, Jodi Redford is the right person to do it with. I mean, she writes it. And I read it. What did you think I meant? Now, as Kelly has informed me before, menage =/= love triangle. And this certainly was the case here. And thank goo...more
The story starts with Jemma Finnegan, a woman with a plan, setting out to seduce her super hunk of a best friend of ten years – Griffin Trudeau. Next comes some delicious and literally earth moving kitchen lovin’, the beginning of a zombie apocalypse and that’s just the first chapter!
From the start I loved...more

“That fantasy isn’t what I really want.” She traced the line of his jaw, her eyes shimmering with moisture. “It’s you. It’s always been you.”
Jodi Redford delivers a fast-paced read packed with everything the paranormal/romance genre craves. Witches, ghosts, zombies, and of course those delectable shape-shifting familiars. Redford has an ability to transition smoothly, while keeping the flow moving without causing confusion for the reader.
The chemistry between Jemma and Gr...more
At first I thought it was going to be all about witches. I was happy, since Bewitched I have been fascinated by the fantasy and reality of witches. But then it got into the Voodoo and zombies part. Don't know what I was expecting given the title. I put the book down for a day or so. I am not interested...more
I will start off by saying that Ms. Redford is a new to me author. Like... very new! But I am very excited to say that she has made me a new fan!! I am honored that Ms. Jodi asked to review the first book in the series... ((be on the look out for the rest of this series to be reviewed here as well... especially book four... **Getting Familiar With Your Demon*...more

Jemma seduces Griff in mind blowing kitchen sex that causes the earth to shake. Great news, right? Wrong. Her orgasm actually causes zombies to raise in an attack to free the spirit of a witch, Nettie, whom was put under a spell by Jemma’s grandmother.
Friends are turned against each other, zombies are k...more
Well, the sex needed to save the world is even better.
I’d not call this safe reading for work or for your commute... There are some hot moments! But it wasn’t just hot moments, either.
Well, okay, they were important – but they had a reason! See the blurb above? Save the world!
Still, I spent a great deal of the book mentally ogling at Logan.
But anyway, There’s some mystery unravelling too – who was the evil Voodoo queen? Wil...more
The story sucked me from the first line and kept me hooked until those last few pages mentioned abo...more
What a great story! Totally not what I expected. Based on the cover, I was expecting a more chick-kicking-bad-guy's-ass kind of book (yes, I judged a book by it's cover!), and to be fair, there was some ass kicking. But the story had much more! Funny, great one liners, and a hero and heroine you can cheer for.
I enjoyed them so much I bought the following two stories in the series and have the fourth in my wishlist.
I started reading this series because the third book apparently features a tiger shark shifter hero and we all know how much I adore reading about non-traditional shifters. I found That Voodoo You Do to be a quick read and even a little on the short side, as I would have preferred a smidge more world-building. There was one m/m/f scene, but it was "relevant" to the plot and wasn't gratuitous. The zombies were suitably creepy and disgusting.
Onto book 2!
Ms. Redford is imaginative, whitty, and draws out the right emotion when needed in this well written tale of screwed up family ties, magic,friendship, and ends it with an amazing happily ever after scenerio.
Did I mention I loved it? *grins*
