Just not that funny not for everyone
Reviewed in the United States on April 3, 2016
This might seem harsh to some. Everyone seemed to rave about these books and this series. So, I took a chance to read. This was so ridiculous! I honestly rolled my eyes at the silliness and tackiness of it. I was at Chapter 2 and I honestly wanted to quit reading it! It was stupid at that point. I'm sorry...just not what I expected. To be honest I thought it was gonna be a lot like Michele Bardsley's Broken Heart series. Um no. Not even! There wasn't any real humor in this just quirky silliness that didnt do it for me. I did skip ahead to about Chapter 5 or 6. It did get better once the stupid cheesy lines stopped. I did end up finishing it because I paid 5 bucks for it.
What happened to Zelda? I dont see anything about her in the other books in this series. There wasn't a mention about her either at the end of this one. Maybe she's part of a different series and just not Paris? I dunno. Being convicted at being a magic abuser Winnie loathes where she has to serve out her probation. Which is in Ben's home with his cute troubled niece Lola. Ben being the nephew of Baba who is her jailer. Honestly, the same was weird and it kept getting changed and that so annoyed me. Anyways, Winnie had a relationship with him. Did it slow and right and after they did the horizontal tango he didnt call her for 3 days...in a female's world thats a no-no. So, naturally she thought he used her and she accidentally blew up his warehouse. He on the other hand was dealing with some things. He really should have told her in some way what had happened. He had a real good excuse for not calling. There was no way Winnie would know to talk to a temp to get his whereabouts. They both screwed the pooch in my opinion. Once it was all straightened out it was an ok read. I dont like it enough to read anymore of her stuff though. Sorry...just not that funny. I think its more light-hearted than anything. Not for 5 bucks anyways. If your looking for that this is what you want. If you want funny and quirky its not what you want. I personally dont recommend it. Lots of people liked it but I didnt.
