Sometimes books sit in my review pile for a while waiting for me to crack the proverbial spine open and delve into the world that the author has taken great time and thought into creating for their characters. I'm not exactly sure what caused me to keep pushing this to the back of the pile of "must read books" but it lingered there for far too long. And now I'm looking forward to reading more by this author because the story was told with a light touch that I found charming.

Burning Love!

Federica De La Cruz is a witch with a serious problem, whenever she has lustful thoughts, she shoots flames. What's a girl to do, become celibate, so as not to burn the town down? Fredi thinks just that, don't go out with any guy, just stick to rescuing kittens and witching them good homes.

Her BFF Estele has other plans for her though in the form of a yummy lycan named Gus with a full moon problem. If she can get them together to have a drink called Hoodoo Blue all should fall into

Every once in a while I find myself dving into a book with if I'm honest very low expectations . I do like this authors work but wasn't really sure if a story featuring a love potion would satisfy my romantic soul. Yes I want romance but I need to believe the couple genuinely do have a great connection and as luck would have it there is most definitely a few sparks flying around between these two!

Written For Confessions From Romaholics

Take a witch and a werewolf, mix it with a powerful love spell, add some dirty talk and you’ll have the receipe for the perfect hoodoo blue cocktail. Of course, it should come with a warning: never trust another witch who sets you up on a blind date that will end with you wearing an orange safety vest and picking up trash on the side of the highway every weekend for six months! You never know what could happen next: it could go worse than wearing something

Fredi and Gus have both sworn off dating until they can get themselves under control but one set up from hell later and all bets are off as they just might change their minds in this charming and quirky paranormal romance.

Fredi’s secret is taking a heavy toll on her love life as she has no control over her witch fire when she gets hot and bothered and Gus finds that women are turned off by his increasingly wild wolf shifts.
The reader can’t help but get caught up by their story as a well intentio

This is my first time reading this author and what drew me was the story line. As soon as I opened it up I was very glad I ventured in. With paranormal being one genre I pick often because of all the wonderful characters and extraordinary things that go on this author was no different. I met two wonderful characters-Fredi and Gus.

I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

HOODOO BLUE is one of the funniest romances I have read! Fredi is a witch who has problems with her temper and it has caused her to catch things on fire when she thinks sexual thoughts. Gus is a wolf shifter who wants a mate but cannot find one because he scares women when they find out he's a shifter. Fredi's friend, Estele, decides these two are a good match and does what she can to get them together.

Witch Frederica De la Cruz, and lycan Gus Odindon both have issues that need resolving and have no intention of dating anyone. They share a pitcher of “Hoodoo Blue” and are forced to spend time together.

If you’re in the mood for a story that is going to make you laugh, go no further, you have found your book. Hoodoo Blue is a very funny story that kept me giggling.

Fredi and Gus have hilarious issues that kept me amused. Okay, if the issues were happening to me, they might not be so funny but in

This is a fun, snappy little paranormal romance, but instead of a meet-cute, we have a meet-disaster. Neither Gus nor Fredi thinks they are in the right place to date, but a good-hearted friend with a penchant for mischief and spell casting gone awry thinks otherwise. And when the spell goes on, the brakes on the brain and the lips definitely goes off. There’s some rather fun repartee and some sizzling smexing, followed by a sweet happily every after. :Sigh: I just adored Gus, he’s too precious ...more
I received a ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

Gus is a Lycan who hasn't had much luck when it comes to finding his mate. Fredi hasn't had much luck in love either, but she's sort of become the laughing stock of the witch world thanks to her uncontrollable powers, and her quick temper.

Thanks to some meddling from a friend, Gus and Fredi get Hoodooed and are forced to suffer the effects through a night. It's funny, cute, and fun

*I received a ARC by the author for a honest review*

Fredi is a witch who has become the joke of the witch world because of her unmanageable powers. To top it off she's refrained from any form of sexual excitement as she can't control herself. Gus is a lykan who doesn't seem to have any luck finding a mate due to his furry side. Until he sets eyes on Fredi. They are set up by a friend who only wants the best but who ends up causing all sorts of disasters.
It's was a sweet story. I loved the chara

This is such a lovely and funny love story. Fredi and Gus are great characters, they are both very unlucky in love department. Both dealing with their own problems and issues. They get set up and meet in a bar. And a set of mishaps and disasters happen. And they are so so funny.
The story is written very well, there is sexual tension right throughout, sex scenes are hot and steamy. I very much enjoyed it.

Now this the kind of romance you can sink your teeth into! I loved this story with the quirky, curvy, blonde witch and her green flames! Such a fun and easy story for a quiet night in, complete with slushy, hoodoo magic! Great job katalina and I can not wait for more!

This is a wonderfully fun book. The characters are brilliant and what flies out of their mouths is pretty hilarious. This is a sexy and sweet novella, and a must read. I loved it.

Opening Scene:

Fredi gazed into the depths of the crate and whispered in her softest, most reassuring voice.

What a delightful short little read. Wasn’t sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised.
Fredi a witch with a temper and has an issue with flaming green balls of plasma coming out of her fingers. If she’s mad or if she’s feeling amorous. Which by the way can really suck.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I have read several of Katalina Leon's books and do enjoy them each time. Can't go wrong when you write great Shifter/Witch romances, right?! Most of the books are shorter, so you can read them in one afternoon. If not, I am sorry, because I get sucked into her stories and can't put it down until it is done.

This is hilariously adorable! From page one I knew I was not going to be able to put this down. It’s a crazy situation to begin with but having friends like these makes you curious about your enemies.

So… the whole set up is that this is technically a blind date. Of course no one included in the blind date is told that it is a date! Which makes this even more hilarious.

From the start you know that Fredi and Gus are going to have some sparks. In this case it is quite literally! I love how the stor

There is only one way of describing this book and it is - WICKED FUN READ !!! This book had me laughing from start to finish. I loved how insecure both of the characters were when is comes to love. Both have terrible past dating experiences that they have to work through to be open to even allowing themselves to hope for love.

If you are looking for a wonderfully touching and funny read, Hoodoo Blue is for you. It wasn’t deep, it wasn’t bloody, it wasn’t off the deep end – it was just a great story that had me laughing and cheering these two on. Fredi is a witch with “issues”. Gus is a lycan who is all wolf. To say that chaos ensues is a bit of an understatement but it is a hilarious ride. I really liked both of these characters.

Hoodoo Blue is a Hoot! Fredi had me laughing so hard at times. Gus wasn't to bad himself.

Oh come on....what could go wrong on a blind date? I mean, if you don't get along, you just leave....right?

Ha! Not with a friend like Estele.

Fredi and Gus each have their own to deal with. Being intimate is one they want to stay away from.....but......

One pitcher of Hoodoo Blue and all verbal filters are gone.
