|Witches Get Stitches by Juliette Cross|
I don't think Juliette Cross has the power to disappoint me. And that sunnies, is a great thing. There is nothing better than going into a book knowing with absolute certainty that you will love it.
Book 3 in the Stay a Spell series was just as charming, mesmerizing, romantic, and steamy as the previous books. Is it my favorite of the 3? Close, very close, but no. Mateo my man still tops the cake. And his appearances in this book just fermented that. I loved how many glimpses we got of him and the grims. Their books cannot come soon enough. I know you are all waiting for Jules' book. Well, I'm waiting for my grims, and I sure hope they have a darker edge to them. All that being said, if you are new to this series go ahead! This can easily be read as a stand alone. I would recommend you read them all, but I am obsessed with Juliette Cross...
Violet was...interesting. During the first 40% of the book I wanted to bring her out of the pages and punch her for being blind and stubborn. But once she realizes she is being stupid she is pretty good about admitting it and becomes a very likable character. My least favorite of the sisters so far (sorry Juliette) but a nice, lovable character nonetheless.
Now, Nico was a force of nature. The only reason I prefer Mateo to him is that Mateo's inner wolf has my heart.
So, how to describe Nico?
A Sequoia. Yes, you read that correct. A Sequoia.
Unique in size and character, strong in presence and in essence, silent and noble, unmoving but not unchanging, patient, enduring...
That my friends, is Nico. He was always there. Silently and patiently waiting for silly Violet. With a presence larger than life but also unchanging and enduring in his feelings and of all her rejections. A Sequoia. An odd comparison to some, but one that makes perfect sense to me. Because let's also add to the list, and that also applies to both Nico and the Sequoia: beautiful, stunning, majestic! :)
Not a 5, cause slow burn isn't my thing and Violet took forever. But a solid 4.5 out of 5!
Fabulous as always.
