The Trouble With Spells (Of Witches and Warlocks, #1)

The Trouble With  Spells (Of Witches  and  Warlocks #1)

by Lacey Weatherford

Portia Mullins had always lived the life of a normal teenager, up until her sixteenth birthday. She is then informed by her grandma that she is actually a witch who is a descendant from a long line of witches and warlocks. After overcoming her disbelief she finds that being a member of the coven comes with one great perk in the form of the school’s handsome bad boy, Vance Mangum. Vance and Portia have an immediate connection as a budding romance begins, only to be threatened by turbulent skies on the horizon as Vance’s checkered past rears its ugly head to haunt them. Portia is forced to use her untried powers in defense of everything she loves in a desperate attempt to hold on to the one thing that really matters in her life.

My review:

Its books like these that make me believe in soul mates. Portia and Vance are just perfect for each other. The concept of ‘love at first sight’ surrounds this couple. The swoon-worthy Vance and budding-witch Portia make the most adorable couple.

Okay as a book reviewer, i am to be completely honest. Painstakingly honest, if required 😛 but bashing a book is not what i have set out to do. Being as this is the second book i have read revolving around witches, forming a unchangeable opinion would be too hostile. (Now i have feeling that you might be thinking that either i have conflicting feelings about this book or that i am seriously out to do some bashing. I’ll just clear it…i’m here to do neither.)

The Trouble With Spells revolves around this couple, a newly-turned witch and an all-too powerful warlock. (You gotta love these settings) Anyway, Vance (the warlock, if you didn’t already guess) at first tries to battle his feelings for Portia (the witch) because he feels that he carries with him a danger, but Portia is not going to give up. This is isn’t how the story plays out though. Vance doesn’t play the all hard to get hero and Portia is no where the stalkerish-ever-so-persistent heroine. Just saying.

Together Vance and Portia make this adorable couple and you find yourself thinking back to Edward and Bella (even though i have no intentions of going there because comparing books to other books is not what i set out to do). The extreme feelings of love that both these characters have for each other is just to breathtaking. Portia is just to cute when the first spell that she creates is for the protection of Vance. Check the spell out below:

Oh moon, Tonight i call on thee

To help me set a spirit free

Give thy protection on this night

Ever surround him with the light

Let no evil near him get

May only goodness now be met

This book contains some hot make-out scenes and i just loved reading them. I had a blast reading it and for me it was no-putting-downer (if you can understand that) 😀

Plus the ending was heart breaking and breathtaking. “psst” You’ll just have to read to find out. 😛
