Official Description: (This is book 1 of the That Old Black Magic series)
For ten long years Griffin Trudeau has managed to keep his paws off Jemma Finnegan, best friend and leading star of his kinkiest fantasies. As her appointed cat familiar, indulging those fantasies with the delectable witch is strictly forbidden. But when Jemma shows up at his door with seduction in mind, control goes right out the window.
Too late he realizes making love to Jemma is the trigger that launches a zombie apocalypse.
Jemma’s been dealt a double whammy: she’s just discovered she’s a witch. And Griff has been hiding whiskers and a tail. Oh, and if her life wasn’t crazy enough, a dead voodoo queen needs her blood to raise a legion of zombies.
There’s one plan that might work to increase Jemma’s powers so she can put an end to the looming holocaust. A sexy threesome with Griff and Logan Scott, a werewolf familiar with a history of rubbing Griff’s fur the wrong way. A cat and a wolf playing nice, much less sharing? It’ll take a miracle.
Warning: A witch, tiger and wolf doing naughty things. A dead voodoo queen doing evil things. And zombies doing zombie things. Get your shovels ready.
Note to self: read the description of book prior to reading them. This book is a story that could be ok except that it’s trying too hard and mostly finding excuses for why we should be putting in the sex scenes, which didn’t really feel organic. We start of with Jemma seducing Griff in the very first chapter and this is apparently so earth shattering that it causes a zombie apocalypse. Not really sure why, it is never really explained except maybe because Jemma is all magical, which really doesn’t have much to do with the story. Except that in order to make her magic come out full force she’s told to have a threesome. Yes that’s right want magic have sex with your best friend and this complete stranger and you’ll be shiny. Ok, besides the sex the story is about finding out how to stop these zombies, honestly everything is predictable almost to the word. I felt like I was reading some story that was forced out instead of something that flowed naturally from the writer. Oh well, this book has tons of great reviews, I mean most of the reviews are 4 or 5 stars, but I don’t really get it. The characters aren’t even very flushed out the world isn’t flushed out, I don’t know maybe that’s how it’s intended.
