Clare’s (“Billionaire Boys Club” series) latest stand-alone is a lighthearted and fun romp with a touch of the paranormal. Reggie responds to an ad looking for a personal assistant. Little does she know, her employer and the woman’s nephew are hundreds of years old and have been having trouble keeping their witch familiars. Reggie, who assumes her new boss is losing her grasp on reality in her advanced age, humors all her requests. But when she’s faced with the absolute fact that magic is real, Reggie allows herself to grow closer not only to the magic world but to her employer’s nephew, Ben. When her boss suddenly seems to have been cursed, it’s up to Reggie and Ben to solve the mystery—and to figure out whether a romance between a warlock and a human can last.
VERDICT Though fun, Clare’s novel won’t have enough conflict to keep some readers engaged; the reveal at the end demonstrates the low stakes. Recommend to those who prefer light paranormal fare that borders on chick lit.
