Review The Sexy & The Undead (Sexy Witches #1) by Charity Parkerson

REVIEW

"I don't watch movies at all. I read books," he added with an offended sniff.
"Those ridiculous fiction books," Ella retorted.
"Well, yes," Randall admitted. But still, most myths are based on some form of truth, so you must concede that my fears are not unfounded."

If you want to spend a few hours with a book to entertain yourself then The Sexy & The Undead is a very good choice.

It is a successful blend of humor, unexpected and romance. It is an unconventional complex because you’ll find gathered together all sorts of mythological and supernatural beings, and their features may differ from what you knew. Noteworthy is the Homo Coprophagus Somnambulus (look yourself for the translation from Latin :D) that you'll love from the first moment even if it is possible that at some point he’ll munch your hands or feet.

The atmosphere is always funny even if sometimes the love story takes over the scene. This is actually normal, given that it is a paranormal romance. About that I liked how the author provides the opportunity and the necessary elements for a love triangle - you will see whether there is a real one.

The book’s idea is that saying "be careful what you wish because it can be accomplished" can sometimes have good consequences. That if we overlook some events that are playing on the edge of love, jealousy and "sense" of property. Do not worry, love is there, but in the presence of well-intentioned decision for one or the other of the parties it can be lost very easily.

I liked also some dialogues that for sure will make you smile. The story has everything: bites, irony, jokes, jealousies, confrontations (oral) between rivals, and the secrets that will resolve the situation are well kept until the end.

The author does not need too many gimmicks to keep the sustained pace of the story. Everything is happens quickly, smoothly and... naturally giving the circumstances. You will not know when you read about 170 pages.

Now I have to go get my volume two because it is about Randall. Who is he? Read The Sexy & The Undead and find out! Then you will want more for sure!
"He was created of the night and has no light to guide him."
I received the books for review as part of Book Tour - Thank you

Romanian:
Dacă vreți să petreceți câteva ore cu o carte care să vă binedispună atunci The Sexy & The Undead este o alegere bună.

Este un amestec reuşit de umor, situații neprevăzute şi romance. Este un complex neconvențional pentru că veți găsi adunate la un loc tot felul de ființe mitologice şi supranaturale, iar trăsăturile acestora pot fi diferite de ceea ce ştiați. De remarcat este Homo Coprophagus Somnambulus (căutați voi traducerea :D) pe care îl veți plăcea din prima clipă chiar dacă s-ar putea ca la un moment dat să vă cioflotească mâinile sau picioarele.

Atmosfera se păstrează haioasă chiar dacă uneori tensiunea amoroasă acaparează scena. Asta e normal de altfel, având în vedere că este un paranormal romance. Mi-a plăcut modul în care autoarea oferă ocazia şi elementele necesare naşterii unui tringhi amoros – veți vedea voi dacă există sau nu unul.

Ideea cărții este aceea că vorba „fii atent ce îți doreşti că poate se împlineşte” poate avea uneori şi urmări bune. Asta dacă trecem cu vederea unele manifestări care se joacă la limita dragostei, geloziei şi „simțului” de proprietate. Nu vă speriați, dragostea e acolo, însă în prezența unor decizii bine intenționate pentru unele sau altele dintre părțile implicate poate fi pierdută foarte uşor.

Mi-au plăcut şi unele dialoguri care cu siguranță vă vor face să zâmbiți. Cartea are de toate: înțepături, ironii, glume, gelozii, înfruntări (verbale) între rivali, iar secretele care vor rezolva situația sunt bine păstrate până la final.

Autoarea nu are nevoie de prea multe artificii pentru a menține ritmul susținut al poveştii. Totul se petrece rapid, cursiv şi... natural în condițiile date. Nici nu vei ştii când ai citit aproximativ 170 de pagini.

Acum trebuie să mă duc să-mi iau volumul doi pentru că este cu Randall. Cine este el? Citiți The Sexy & The Undead şi veți afla!! Apoi sigur că veți mai vrea!
