this plane by a goddess and has to save his fellow dragon Roman soldiers from some evil sorceress or something McKenna has body image issues, money issues and is in desperate need of a handyman to help her fix up her BB Enter her witchy cousin Vivica who is sets these two up becausewell it s magic and a romance, so why not.The only way I can really describe this story is weird I didn t love it but I didn t hate it, either I m just not recommending it The beginning is way, way off and made it a real chore to get into the story Then there is the lead characters are just a bit off Bastian was too often childlike and that made it hard to connect with him as a smoking hot romantic hero I get it that he was learning about being human again and esp in the 21st century butagain, too childlike for too long McKenna had her own problems and became a bit of the one dimensional large heroine with body issues.This story was amusing at spots but totally dragged in others I was really expectingfluff and humor and was rather sadly disappointed There was also too much going on this story Too many little side plots It was like having a chocolate cake in front of you and then someone decides to throw in some fudge sauce, ice cream, chocolate chips, caramel, sprinkles, whipped cream and a cherry on top So now you are wondering if you even want the cake any A dragon turned man, Bastain, falls from the sky into a circle of witched He looks like a cross between Hugh Jackman Jeffery Dean Morgan A woman Vivica who is another witch collects him brings him to her employment agency Works Like Magick Okaaaay Good so far He is very literal and requires training Bastians origins arecomplex, but why waste time explaining Vivica hires him out as a handyman to her cousin McKenna, a Red haired Fat girl who wear flowered hippie caftans to hide A dragon turned man, Bastain, falls from the sky into a circle of witched He looks like a cross between Hugh Jackman Jeffery Dean Morgan A woman Vivica who is another witch collects him brings him to her employment agency Works Like Magick Okaaaay Good so far He is very literal and requires training Bastians origins arecomplex, but why waste time explaining Vivica hires him out as a handyman to her cousin McKenna, a Red haired Fat girl who wear flowered hippie caftans to hide her body He is to help her fix her B B so she doesn t lose it to an evil guy This is the only description we get, except she has a great chest, so do I picture her a size 10 or 20 who knows.The character that makes this book is a faery Dewdrop who rides the cat small children see her as a flying Barbie This book had potential, but so many times McKenna is sarcastic she has to reexplain to this literal dragon guy AND It goes from one point to another so quickly I had to constantly see if I missed something For example, Bastian falls from the roof while being pelted by hail lands wrong breaking things He yells at McKenna to move his hands to his back to help heal himself Next page says He s fine are you sure he fell as man removes squeezy thing from his arm Obviously it implies the ambulance was called they came he had already healed himself, but no mention of anything after he was repositioned Where did his audience come from Constantly It s a whole lot of filling in the blanks youself I hate that.Oh and his man lance It s alive with a mind of it s own is like a seperate being attached to him It does not look like anything you can find on the internet either curls itself around the girls arm OOOkaaay Out there for sure.To sum it all up, it s funny at times, annoying at others, jumps around too much is totally non descriptive This national bestselling sensation has some new tricks up her sleeve First in the Works like Magick series The Works like Magick Employment Agency has a reputation for perfectly matching clients with magical temps So when McKenna Greylock requests a handyman, the gorgeous Bastian Dragonelli arrives to repair her BB and fire up her bedroom I ve been a fan of Annette Blair s since her first witch trilogy, and I loved every one of those books through two series Her humor is her mainstay, something you know will be in every story and will keep you entertained throughout the read, as well as her imagination that gives you charming characters in various storylines, all of which are wrapped in magic You cannot go wrong with an Annette Blair book.What I love most about this book is not only Bastian himself, sexy, naked dragon that he i I ve been a fan of Annette Blair s since her first witch trilogy, and I loved every one of those books through two series Her humor is her mainstay, something you know will be in every story and will keep you entertained throughout the read, as well as her imagination that gives you charming characters in various storylines, all of which are wrapped in magic You cannot go wrong with an Annette Blair book.What I love most about this book is not only Bastian himself, sexy, naked dragon that he is, but when we first meet him, he s just come back to the human realm, once again a man after being a dragon for so many years He has to reabsorb things that he knew as a Roman warrior So it s his innocence, or, as McKenna is told, his literal ness, that makes him so endearing Ms Blair s humor helps him along I found myself laughing out loud a number of times at his responses to situations Bastian s the first of his brothers to make it back via the magic of the Goddess of Hope, so all are relying on him to defeat the Sorceress of Chaos and to pave the way for the others to follow If he fails, all is lost.McKenna is a direct descendant of Ciarra, a Salem witch who survived the witch trials Alas, McKenna has no magic and that s why she s in need of a handyman, pronto She s running against the clock to turn her rundown familial Victorian home into a bed and breakfast She refuses to be the one to lose it after so many centuries She has a developer who s hot for the land and won t leave her be, constantly making her offers So she turns to her cousin, Vivica Quinlann, who does possess magic and owns the Works Like Magic Employment Agency Vivica has taken Bastian in when he arrives and now has the perfect place for him McKenna s jack of all trades.When these two come together, the fun starts and never lets up Bastian loves the internet He looks up every little thing he doesn t understand any, and that s a lot He also speed reads, so his learning curve is quite high Some things are still the same that he remembers from before, like the attraction to a beautiful woman But then there are other things that confound him a little, his man lance being one And that s where most of my laughter came from Bastian and his man lance are something else, first humorous and then sexy and erotic as all get out.Of course, there are serious moments to be had McKenna has just lost her mother Bastian is able to see all of McKenna s past ancestors on the Greylock property, something McKenna has to learn to believe in on her own The evil coming at them from both the human and the magic side is very real and they have to work together to conquer all We don t get to see Bastian s dragon until the very end of the book when he can no longer control his inner beast as McKenna physically has to fight her rotten developer Those scenes that come after when McKenna learns Bastian still lives are the best in the book Ms Blair can pull at the heart strings as well as she can hit the funny bone.Secondary characters are just as wonderfully written as the hero and heroine I especially love Dewcup, a miniature fairy who gets into trouble every time she turns around, and also Steve and Lizzie, McKenna s friends, and their children Scenes with these characters go from hilarious to heart wrenching.This is a terrific start for Ms Blair s new series Her writing is still invitingly fresh, especially the banter between characters no matter who they are Her take on magic is just as fresh and very different from most of what s out there to read nowadays As her fans have learned from her previous series, each coming book will be a delight, will stand on its own, but will remain true and consistent to the essence of the series.Isn t it time you learned that too See my complete review at Oh boy I wanted to like this book but it just didn t happen It was like Henny Youngman took over the body of the heroine McKenna and she just wouldn t stop Bastian doesn t understand slang, so she keeps using it constantly All I needed was a snare drum Bastian was not only slow in understanding slang, but slow in a slow way I like humerous books like Katie MacAlister s but not this one I don t think I ll be reading her books anytime soon. Hm, where can I start about just how bad this book was Can I find anything good about it Maybe the cover I needed a book for a long flight, picked it up in the airport, and it just made the flight that much longer The dragon guy goes from picking up ideas quickly just by reading a book, but then the author has him revert back to his caveman me not know what you say moron state, unless he talks about his man lance, a reference to which appears on practically every page I needed some wine Hm, where can I start about just how bad this book was Can I find anything good about it Maybe the cover I needed a book for a long flight, picked it up in the airport, and it just made the flight that much longer The dragon guy goes from picking up ideas quickly just by reading a book, but then the author has him revert back to his caveman me not know what you say moron state, unless he talks about his man lance, a reference to which appears on practically every page I needed some wine and crackers to go with something this cheesy Had to find another book right away to wash the bad taste out of my brain I m sure this was intended to be a lighthearted, somewhat campy paranormal romance It did have a few cute LOL moments but overall I found it to be a juvenile effort I probably won t be reading anyof Blair s work if this is indicative of what to expect.

I knew nothing about this book or author when I picked it up, but was looking for a book that would help me complete a challenge, and frankly didn t expect much from it So imagine my surprise when this book turned out to be a fun campy book that had me in fits of giggles with all the talk about the man lance If you are looking for a light, fun, easy read that is heavy on the sexual innuendo this is the perfect book.McKenna comes from a long line of witches, however she does not have any powers I knew nothing about this book or author when I picked it up, but was looking for a book that would help me complete a challenge, and frankly didn t expect much from it So imagine my surprise when this book turned out to be a fun campy book that had me in fits of giggles with all the talk about the man lance If you are looking for a light, fun, easy read that is heavy on the sexual innuendo this is the perfect book.McKenna comes from a long line of witches, however she does not have any powers She is trying to save the family house from forclosure by trying to turn it into a BB, trying because there are a ton of renovations that need to be done and not a lot of time After some problems at the start she needs a handyman and goes to her cousin s employment agency Enter Bastian, he was around when Romans were soldiers, but ended up getting turned into a dragon, now he is a man again with the chance to save himself and his brother dragons if he can find his heart mate He turns up in modern times and find his way to the employment agency, where he is taken under the wing of McKenna s cousin to acclimate him to the new world he is in Bastin s learning of things makes for some great scenes as he takes so many things literally.Of course Bastian becomes McKenna s handyman and the craziness ensues During the course of things can seem far fetched and if you just go with it the story is funny and enjoyable.I will definitely be checking out other books by this author and keep reading this series
