Witcha Gonna Do?

Tilda Sherwood was born into one of the most powerful magical families in all of Witchingdom, but she’s a rare outré—powerless. Even so, an executive council of witches sends Gil Connolly to check that Tilda really is a dud. Gil has a secret power himself: he is a duíl, and his magic can make people fall in love. When a series of explosive high-magic events occur, Gil discovers Tilda’s secret, and he’s the only one who can help her unravel the mess her magic has made. Flynn’s (Mansplainer) contemporary romance is unique in format; both protagonists break the fourth wall and speak directly to readers in alternating chapters. The sex scenes are spicy, and the humor usually hits the mark. Unfortunately, there’s little chemistry between the protagonists, and the plot is slow to build up speed.
VERDICT Flynn’s fans will enjoy this detour into paranormal romance, but regular readers of the genre won’t be impressed.
