Chick With A Charm by Vicki Lewis Thompson

Lily Revere is free-spirited and fun loving—two dangerous qualities in a witch. Especially while planning her sister Anica’s engagement party, and she needs a date! She’s determined to bring hot Griffin Taylor, but he’s a divorce lawyer who claims his job has warned him off romance. He may pretend he's just not into her, but she knows better—he only needs a nudge in the right direction.

Slipping a love elixir into Griffin’s drink may not be the noble thing to do—but it sure works! Lily’s dreamboat drops all defenses and the two discover they’re perfectly matched—in every way. There’s just one problem: Are Griffin’s feelings the result of some truly good witchcraft—or is he really in love?

Wow, this book was waaaaaaaaaay more exciting to read than its predecessor, Blonde With A Wand. This story tells the tale of Anica's (book 1) rebellious sister Lily. The thing I like about this book was it's a flip flop of book one. In Blonde with a Wand Anica was the boring character and Jasper was the more intense one. With Chick with a Charm, Lily is the rebellious, intense, trouble making sister and Griffin is the "safe" character.

The story revolves a lot around the bar that Lily works in where she makes drinks I've never heard of and make me thirsty. (Harvey Wallbanger, Singapore Sling) VLT definitely up'd the sex encounters for sure in this steamy sex induced coma of fiction!! She was even more descriptive/explicit, if that's even possible? If I were a reader and hadn't read book one, I would have expected the first 100 pages could have explained more of the past story. The animal care Vicki expressed in Blonde with a Wand is as prevelant in Chick with a Charm.

I thought the wizardry version of STD/ birth control prevention is very creative and hilarious. Why can't someone think of potions to create a STD/birth control prevention. The world would be at awe. There was a good turn of events at the end. The ending also left you wanting a third book with a "lesser" character who is featured in book one and two. Aside from my Ally Blue gay-erotic obsession, Ms. Thompson has written the hottest erotica I've read this year... well it is straight but I can make substitutions. :)
