Stay with me on this review: I will get to the point. Maybe I need to state the point first. Okay, I will. One of my mantras is “Trust Your Author” and sometimes I have to remind myself of this. Now, stay with me! Aislinn is a human witch and Troy is a 195 year old werewolf who is desperate to find his mate because he is turning savage and will run the risk of having to be put down before he becomes uncontrollable. Now, Aislinn is working on a ritual spell that needs her to capture an immortal f ...more

**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for honest review.**

When a witch and a werewolf find love, it's pure magic!

Get it? Magic? *snorts* I kill myself, sometimes...

We return to Arkin City, but this time it isn't a lupine that we're rooting for. It's our resident witch, Aislinn, who we met in the first book of this series. We do catch a glimpse or two of our original characters and a few new ones!

Aislinn is a witch on a mission to fix her magic, which has bee

Strange Brew was a great story that I enjoyed very much.

Troy is a werewolf on the verge of losing his humanity, this is a curse they all face when they can’t find their mates before reaching 200 hundred years of age. He has almost given up hope when he gets word as to where his mate is… and he doesn’t waste time getting there.

Aislinn is a born witch whose magic hasn’t been quite right lately. Feeling off she is taking every opportunity that arises to help her get her powers u

Fangirl Musings

One Sentence Summary:

A badass, sasstacular human witch is targeted by an evil coven, which makes her beta wolf-boy mate none too happy!

What part made you fangirl squeal:

1. 2 words. RITUAL! SEX!
2. Any time Aislinn kicked magic ass or verbally bitch slapped somebody!
3. Every time our boy Troy flew his “I’d rather die than disrespect her” flag.

Favorite Character:

BITCH DON’T MAKE ME PICK. Fine, but only after 124 hours of torture- Our heroine’s momma! That hilarious woma

Book: Strange Brew: The Crucible, book 3
Author: Angela Colsin
The Lovers: Aislinn Carmichael & Troy Ashland
Tropes: Paranormal, Haunted house, Magic Powers, witches, werewolves, mates, alpha male, sassy female
Hotness: Not Safe For Mom

Strange Brew was so amazing! The “mates” trope is a crux of the storyline. This is evident from the synopsis and prologue. But what I love about how this trope is used is that the werewolf in question, Troy Ashland, was respectful A.F.! Rather than meeting Aislinn
