An interfering ghost, a nosy mind-reading grandmother, a psychic man-hating mother, and a spell gone wrong are only a few dilemmas Sofia Good has to deal with in order to find love.

It’s not easy having control of your own destiny when you can’t even remember what you put on that morning, even worse when you’re given a “gift” of precognition to save people’s lives, and you have no clue how to use it.

Grayson Phillips lost his brother in a senseless accident, and now he’s trying to gain back control by maintaining a safe and uneventful ‘life plan.’ But after sexy, quirky Sofia crash lands into his world he’s forced to rethink his strategy.

When Sofia’s grandmother casts a love spell, it successfully maneuvers Sofia and Grayson into her home in secluded Amish country. Time will tell if the love spell helps or destroys Sofia’s only chance at love.

Our hero Grayson finds himself Bewitched bothered and bewildered by our heroine Sophie, and rightly so. But is it love, lust or something else, find out in this highly suspenseful and spicy romance read.

Viola Estrella spins us a fanciful tale in Bewitching You. She gives us believable characters who are very well developed from our hero and heroine to her supporting cast. And of those supporting characters I think you’ll enjoy the antics of Sophie’s Nana and Sophis’s mom as well. Her story line/plot is fantastical but also believable and even though the subject isn’t unique Viola makes it her own. Her dialogue is well defined and descriptive, it does tend to get a little redundantly wordy at times, but that does not take away from the enjoyment of reading the novel. I do like her use of dreams to introduce the hero and heroine and they are very hot dreams too, and it makes their fist actual meeting much more enjoyable to the reading audience. Her love scenes sizzle off the page and are very descriptive and leave nothing to the imagination. The romance is sometimes sweet and other times extremely sensual. But the characters love for each other does shine throughout the pages.

This read would appeal to readers who enjoy extremely spicy and descriptive love stories. In other words for those of you who like your romance on the sizzle burner. Who enjoy romance novels with a paranormal twist. Who enjoy getting to know their characters intimately. And who just enjoy a great read. Kudos to Viola Estrella for one Spicy Hot Romance read.
