Violet Savoie has a plan. A dream, rather. To open her own tattoo shop, which caters to supernaturals in need of permanent charms. As a powerful Seer, she has the potent magic to cast every kind of spell. Except the kind to give werewolves control over their beastly side. And her business partner Nico needs help in the worst kind of way.
Nico Cruz has a secret. A motive, rather. To subtly stalk and seduce Violet until she finally recognizes they are fated to be together. Ever since their heated encounter in Austin on New Year’s Eve two years earlier, he’s been dying to get his hands—and his tongue—back on her body. He knows a woman like Violet can’t be courted in the usual way. Luckily, Nico has no scruples about misbehaving to get what he wants.
But when his former pack roams into town, and an old friend is far too interested in Violet, his focus shifts to the threat venturing into his territory. Nico may come across as the quiet, broody one, but the intruders are about to regret stepping foot in New Orleans. And when Violet goes missing, no charm or spell can keep Nico’s wolf at bay.
Another fantastic addition to the Stay a Spell series! I’ve been intrigued by Nico and Violet’s relationship ever since they were introduced in Wolf Gone Wild, and it was absolutely worth the wait. Nico is a delicious alpha wolf playing the long game in winning Violet over. Violet, a powerful Seer witch, believes they’re destined to crash and burn so she tries to deny their attraction over and over. Little does she know, fate has other plans…
I have no words for how sweet and steamy, and just overall satisfying, this book was. Nico and Violet were everything. They went from a one night stand to enemies-ish to friends to lovers, and the journey was a joy to watch unfold. Nico and his wolf knew exactly who Violet was to him and his wolf, it was just a matter of getting Violet to come to the same realisation.
As usual, Juliette Cross has created a wonderfully whimsical world that I want to live in. I was captivated the entire time by their relationship, their friendships with family and friends, and the overall plotline; and we finally got more information about grims! I am so excited for book 4 and am counting down to its release in June. *shakes fists in the air* I need more of this series!
