Werewolves Be Damned is the first book in the Magic and Mayhem series. Nexi Jones has just witnessed the murder of her parents in the most impossible way, and before she knows it she is thrust into the Otherworld and learns things about herself and heritage that is absolutely unbelievable.
Nexi is a stubborn and headstrong young woman and makes a truly kickass heroine. Readers will see Nexi begin her time in the Otherworld a confused, angered, and grief stricken woman and transform into a strong and confident warrior. The only thing more baffling than learning there is a supernatural world she didn’t know exists and that she belongs to is the way she feels for the warrior guardian and her trainer Kyden. She finds him infuriating with his perfect body and caveman behavior. Yet at times a look from him can nearly bring her to her knees. I loved the interaction between these two characters, and the way the author let them truly get to learn about one another. She did a wonderful job of building the chemistry between Nexi and Kyden. There are so many other fantastic characters in the book I am excited to learn more about. I am already eager for the next book.
I have read some of Kennedy’s erotic stories and immediately became a fan. I was so excited to read this book, and see this other side to her storytelling. Let me say I was not disappointed. There may not have been the all-out intense heat of her erotica, but this book was so well written and thought out. I found I enjoyed it thoroughly. I’m not saying there is no heat and attraction in the novel, because there is, it is just toned down a bit as to not distract from the actual tale. Kennedy has just made me a fan of her paranormal works as well. Stacey Kennedy has proved to be a very diverse writer between the paranormal and erotic genres I will always be looking forward to what she is going to do next!
This read is full of everything a paranormal romance fan is looking for. There are sexy guardians, werewolves, vampires, and witches. If that isn’t enough readers can also get their fill of action and romance too! If you haven’t given Kennedy’s books a try, dear reader, you are missing out!
Nexi Jones—part witch, part guardian, and wannabe kick-ass warrior—can’t throw a punch or conjure the simplest magic. But that doesn’t stop her from hunting the werewolves who slaughtered her human family. She’ll have her revenge, but only if Kyden, the elite guardian, would get the hell out of her way.
Kyden can’t decide if Nexi wants to get herself killed or if she just has no clue what she’s doing. But her father made it clear: keep Nexi safe…or else. Of course, the more Nexi runs toward revenge, the more she needs Kyden’s aid, and as she grows into her power and confidence, so does his desire to protect her. The only problem? She’d rather he dropped dead.
But when a vampire paints a bull’s-eye on Nexi’s back, she’s hard-pressed to deny Kyden and the help he’s offering. Even if it means getting her revenge will be a little bit harder. At least it will still be as sweet.
