Racy and laugh-out-loud funny. ( )
  Unreachableshelf | Mar 14, 2009 |
Vicki Lewis Thompson makes me laugh. Her imaginative stories combine humor and romance in a way that always tickles my funny bone while I sigh in pleasure at the perfect happy ending for her pairs. "Casual Hex" is the third book in her 'Hex' series about a pair of magical matchmakers who've been banished to a small town in Indiana. They manage to find mischief and create mayhem while helping certain residents of the town find their perfect mate. It's even funnier when not all the residents are of the human variety!

Gwen is a shy, quiet florist who has made a habit of blending in and behaving. After all, when you're one of the few single women in a small town, you have to watch out for your reputation. But recently shy, quiet Gwen has been having some seriously erotic dreams--and they all seem to star the same man. She really doesn't have time for this since her pen pal botanist from France is about to come to town specifically to check out Gwen's rare plant. Over the months of their correspondence Gwen feels they've gotten to know each other so well. OK, she has a crush on him. But a suave, continental guy like him could never be interested in a quiet shy girl like Gwen, right?

Thompson's pacing was dead on in this story. Gwen doesn't become an instant sex kitten. Instead, with the help of friends and a teeny tiny bit of magic, she learns about her own beauty and her own power as a woman. I liked that the magic was about boosting Gwen's confidence vice changing her appearance. The growth came from inside and as many a man will tell you, "Confidence is sexy."

And speaking of sexy...whoo, this story had some pretty hot sex! Between a fairy prince luring Gwen in her dreams, and a flesh and blood Frenchman sexing her up in reality...well, let's just say I'm jealous! This isn't a story that will have the reader searching their conscience or agonizing over life and death decisions or consequences. Instead this book is a breath of humorous air with a hefty helping of hot sexual tension. Just about perfect for a slow evening. ( )
