Book Review – Sex and the Single Witch

Sex and the Single Witch is a collection of contemporary paranormal romance short stories involving witches by Theresa Alan, Carly Alexander, and Holly Chamberlain. 

The first story is called Trouble with Witchcraft by Holly Chamberlain and I could not stand the main leads. Heaven is a spineless, cardboard cutout of a character with low self-esteem and very insipid. Jared, on the other hand, is fall-from-heaven too good to be true handsome guy who just happens to be rich and famous. These characters are not believable and do not make a good hero or heroine. There was really nothing about the story that captured my interest other than the fact that it had a witch in it. 

The second story was called Single White Witch and was about Annie, a single witch living in New York City. And that’s about as much as I can say about this story. There does not seem to be much in the way of plot or characterization for that matter. Very dull, lifeless story about a woman desperate for a man. 

The third story was called The Witch’s Guide to Life and centred around Ariel, a witch painter. I think this was the best story of them, not that that is a high accolade. One thing that irked me about this story was that you have a talented woman who is really good at what she does, then she meets a great man and suddenly she cannot paint anymore; I find that highly unrealistic and detrimental to women (even though this book was written by women). 

All-in-all, I would not spend money on this book; If you feel the need to read it, you would be better off getting it from your local library.
