Evie Black and her demon imp partner, Cass, are two of the most fearsome supernatural bounty hunters on the West Coast. But when Evie’s beloved grandmother dies, her world shatters.

After finding the bottom of a bottle of tequila, Evie breaks the one rule she knows better than to ignore: Never hook up with a werewolf.

Especially when he’s the local alpha who, oh by the way,

So, I was not sure I was going to enjoy it as I had just read a book by Leia Stone I did not like. But I pre-ordered and the blurb looked fun and promising so I thought 'why not'? This morning it appeared on my Kindle and I read it in a couple of hours.

Evie is a fun heroine. I immediately liked her and her BFF Cass (the imp). After her grandmother dies she has a drunk one-night-stand and is infuriated to find she has slept with Brock, the alpha of the (were)wolf pack that wants to demolish her

I love Evie. She’s so tough and snarky. Evie returns home after her Gran dies. Evie then meets Brock, little does she know he’s the alpha werewolf she’s fussing with. And he is going to drastically change her life. Action, suspense, romance and evil
Supernaturals galore.
And that ending, drop a bomb much?? Can’t wait to see what happens with Evie and crew next.

TLDR review: I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK! Literally everything about it. I throughly enjoyed this book.
Warning my review might have minor spoilers!

- The book starts with a bang 😉
- Brock: Normally shifter love interests are way too protective and overbearing for my tastes but Brock is just perfect! He voices his opinion but never forced or tricks Evie into doing what he wants! He respects her even when he doesn’t agree with her! You can tell he cares for her without being a controlling asshole.

Well damn, Magic Bite with have you aching for more from page one. It’s steamy, hilarious, exciting and downright fabulous, as it follows Evie Black and her imp best friend and supernatural bounty hunter partner - Cass, as they return to her home town after her grans dies.

The Supernatural Bounty Hunter series is brilliantly co-written by Leia Stone and Lucía Ashta. I highly recommend the first book in this new series, and I can’t wait to read the next book - Magic Sight.

I love the story. The characters are fully fleshed out, and it feels like it's happening here and now, in our world. Even though there is a pink demon. And magic. With werewolves. I absolutely cannot wait until the next book releases!!!

Just awesome, a great adventure that keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next! Can't wait for the next one!

Well this was an incredible shit show.

I'm at chapter 9 and it still feels like the first introductory pages.

I started reading this because it seemed suspiciously like a copy of Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews with a STARTLINGLY SIMILAR TITLE; front cover with a kickass heroine wielding a sword who is a pseudo investigator that boinks alpha shapeshifters. Fear not because Leia Stone is not even close to Ilona in terms of quality, plot writing and overall making sense with the words that she typy-typ

Fun read with potential.

Edited to add: The second book will be released in March 2019. Ugh. That’s really too long to wait after a cliffy ending on a book the kept me interested mostly because of potential.

Things I like:

This book introduces fun and interesting concepts that are relatively unique to the PNR world. I love the interpersonal relationship between the h and her best friend, a furry, pink, demonic imp with a penchant for disco-themed boy shorts. I mean, who wouldn’t want a funky side

Even though I’ve now found out that she’s written several books (which I do very much need to look into thoroughly), I’ve not read anything by Leia Stone before. Not the same for Lucía Ashta. I think I’ve addictively read everything she’s published and have loved every single one of them. I will frankly admit that I only tried out Magic Bite (Supernatural Bounty Hunter Series, Book 1) because she was the co-author. Having said that, boy was I ever happy that I did so. This is a simply wonderful ...more

Wow! Talk about hitting the ground running. Lucia and Leia didn't pull any punches. This little gem throws caution to the wind and rides head long into danger. It's an action packed, fast paced, heart pounding, nerve racking, nailbiting, smooth flowing read that captivates from the start. All the twists and turns, unpredictable happenings along with all the trials and tribulations you hang on every word. The characters are complex and believable with such depth and individu

Brock. Evie. Cass. Love

This book is Amazing! This is unlike anything Leia has written before! You DO NOT want to miss out on this book! You will absolutely love this ADULT book from Leia and Lucia!! You will love all the twist and turns this book takes you on! So with that being said, let’s talk the characters. Cass=the best imp anyone could ask for. I seriously want a best friend imp!! And specifically Cass. I want Cass. Now Evie is not your typical FMC. She is a bad***, she also doesn’t take

Still suffering from my relentless cold so it's a good time to get some reading done. Not a cure maybe but definitely a way to get my mind off the affliction.

I loved this book and am now eager to see where the next installment takes us. Evie, Cass & Molly seem to meld themselves into quite an impressive, if somewhat eclectic, team. Of course, they do suffer one crisis that they can't overcome but you can't win them all. Figuring out Evie's talents seems to play a large part in the plot line.

Wild and crazy!

What a ride! I trust fellow readers reviews and this story is completely deserving of the 5 stars! I am so glad I snatched this up upon a fellow reviewers comment of "What just happened!? What did I just read!?!" and I echo those sentiments. This story was mind blowing! Wild situations, amazing creativity and delicious characters! The character development was so sharp and pungent that the main characters were tangible. Cass, a character so ridiculously out of this world and absol

Supernaturally awesome!

What did I just read?! I'm not entirely sure what I expected but this destroyed any expectations i.could have had. I'm legitimately having a terrible time trying to put into words just how awesome this story was without giving away any of the crazy amazing surprises it has in store for you! This story starts off with a bang (hehehe) and then it just pulls you along from one mind blow to the next! I could not put this down once I started! I hated watching my percentage left

Wow this book was amazing!!

Evie is such a fantastic character! She comes from a line of witches, however it seems that she is the 'dud' of the family with no powers, which of course didn't go down well with other witching families growing up, so she had to be tough and learn to take care of herself and not rely on other people (other than her Gran, and then Cass.)
Cass, the hot pink demon imp, is her supernatural bounty hunter partner and best friend. He's grumpy, has unique fashion sense, but is

Absolutely loved this!! It has a fresh twist on Japanese folklore that keeps you hooked and wanting more. I couldn't put it down! Our MC Evie is amazing, being born to a long line of powerful witches she thinks she was born a "dud witch", which is the farthest thing from the truth. I think my favorite is her partner/sidekick Cass. They have a friendship that every bestie couple dreams of. Evie and Cass are supernatural bounty hunters and after a hard day at the office they are unwinding at a loc ...more

OMG!!!... This book really amazed me!!!... Evie, the FMC, is an awesome badass woman who has a soft spot for werewolfs... And what a hot one she got this time, yummy!!!... Brock is the alpha of his pack and couldn't resist Evie's sexiness... But what a shocking surprise they discovered the next morning... From that moment on, they both got tangled in a serie of events that lead them to discover / confess family secrets, face unexpected attacks, battle dangerous foes, and develop deep feelings fo ...more
Solid Story with Interesting Characters

In 5 words: great characters but shaky storyline.
I recommend reading the blurb before starting the book, as it begins neck deep in liquor and werewolf sex with little background context. Without this background information you’ll not appreciate some of the great interplay between characters in the first few chapters.
Story tends to jump from doing nothing to forcing characters into action which I found slightly jarring and halted what could have been excell

These are two awesome authors, but together they have created an exceptional, fantastic, awesome start to a series that is beyond description. Magic Bite has everything one would want in a fantasy world populated with fantastic supernatural creatures and with characters you will fall in love with (Evie, Cass, & Brock) and a storyline that will keep you reading. Only life will make you stop before reading the final page. This is one of those books that you will read over and over again so be ...more

I voluntarily review an ARC.
This is the first book of the Supernatural Bounty Hunter series.
I knew I would like this book for I loved every previous book by Lucía Ashta. It amazes me how each new series has a new style and unique characters. Together with the new-to-me author Leia Stone she created a fast paced story with lots of supernatural creatures, shifters, Japanese folklore, with a badass heroine, drama, action and unexpected turns and with some hot stuff way beyond romance. Holy hell, wh

I've never read anything by Leia Stone before, but the cover to this looked so absurd I just had to try it!
Since the 'supernatural bounty hunter' is a very commonly used character type in this genre it's really up to the author(s) to add their own stamp of originality and presentation. And I feel like they succeeded. There's an eclectic mix of characters supporting Evie and she herself is a real firecracker(she certainly has a way with words!). And besides the bounty hunter stuff, Evie also mus

Van Wilder meets Supernatural! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I loved it all. There’s humor (Cass and Molly take the cake), all kinds of supernaturals, a kick butt storyline, and an exceedingly hot yet gentle Alpha. I raced through reading it and really enjoyed how it managed to both make me laugh and keep me caught up in the tension. The writing was well done and held a casual tone that left me feeling like I was there and a part of their group. I loved the ending and can’t wait to find out ...more

This book was awesome and it didn't go in the direction I was expecting, which I really liked. It's packed full of heat, lots of sark from the main character and great character relationships. As well as the main character being full of spark and life, the side characters also hold their own and stand out, I'd love to know more about some of them and could see them having their own stories too. I'm very much looking forward to the second book as I enjoyed this more than I was expecting. Five sta ...more

I always one click when I see Leia Stone has a new book. I just know I won’t be disappointed. Lucia is new to me, but I’ll definitely read anything she writes! These two together, are pure magic😉

The story was fast paced, exciting, and just the right amount of steamy. Evie is an awesome kickass heroine and Brock is a super protective alpha hero. Cass might quite possibly be my favorite character. His over the top attire and hilarious personality will leave anyone with a smile on their face. I can

A Supernatural Bounty Hunter and an Alpha Werewolf meet in a bar...

Evie has an extreme weakness when it comes to werewolves, what happens the morning after is an amazing fast paced adventure that is full of revelations to both Evie and her sexy werewolf kryptonite. If you enjoy the more adult PNR books then you will definitely enjoy this book. Can't wait to see where this series takes Evie and her best friend Cass next.

I’m an avid reader of Leia Stone’s books and this collaboration with Lucía Ashta definitely doesn’t disappoint. At the start of the book, we meet Evie and believe her to be a “dud” from a long line of highly regarded witches. She meets a sexy werewolf in a bar and the action doesn’t stop there. Evie and Brock have an undeniable connection and their relationship unfolds amidst chaos in a supernatural world. I read this book in one sitting and can’t wait for the next instalment!
