"Deceiving the Witch Next Door" by Melissa Bourbon Ramirez (aka Melissa Bourbon & Misa Ramirez)

My Book Summary : For years all Storie has ever wanted was a place that feels like home and somewhere she could fit in. Now that her father has passed away, she plans to turn his old pumping station into her friend Harper and her bookstore & café called, The Storiebook Café, and she is so happy. However, as soon as Harper and her go to work about making their dream come true Storie finds out that Reid, the manager/owner of The Speakeasy that is located beside her bookstore, would love to get his hands on Storie's property. Therefore, when Storie finds need of someone to help out with the repairs that need to be done she is reluctant to accept the help of Reid.

However, for all his faults and good guy behavior Reid does have plans to deceive Storie so he can help out his father. Yet as they spent more time together than ever before, old passions ignite between them making it harder for Storie to focus on her goals and making it harder for Reid to deceive this feisty witch...

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars, follow to feisty and stubborn people who are trying to find their way while getting and achieving their hearts desires. When I first read the description of this novel, I was hesitant to read it since I wasn't sure if I would take a liking to it or not. However, now I can say I was pleasantly surprised with this unique---"story book" of a---tale about a witch finding her soul mate. I could not get enough of these characters!!

About the Characters:
• Storie: A witch who grew up with her father. To stay away from detection about her "witchy ways" she moved around a lot, however when she was a senior in high school she moved to Bloomington, Texas and fell in love with the location so after her father dies (about 8 yrs later) she moves back to Bloomington to start her café/bookstore. Has created her own version of a family with her best friend, Harper, and Harper's daughters (Piper & Scarlett). Has an old flame for her now enemy Reid.

• Reid: Runs his father's bar (The Speakeasy). After a secret ingredient for his father so his father can make millions selling his moonshine recipe. His father believes that Storie has or knows where the secret ingredient is and wants it from her so Reid tries different ways to find it. Has an old flame for Storie that seems to get stronger while being close to her.

• Harper: Storie's best friend and business partner. Has two daughters, Piper & Scarlett. Is an excellent cook.

• Piper: Harper's oldest daughter. Loves books.

• Scarlett: Harper's youngest daughter. Very dramatic. Loves fairytales.

They were all great! Plus, this story was built up so it could work into a possible trilogy! So, I cannot wait to see where this will go, even though I have some ideas as to where it might. =0)

I recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys soft and sweet paranormal romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
“Reid Malone, you just stop.”
With utter control, his gaze moved from her face to her body. “Stop what, darlin’? You’re not enjoying our little reunion?”
“What do you want, Reid?”
He looked at her with a heated expression that she couldn’t read, almost as if what he wanted, and what he could have, were two different things. He dropped his voice. “Maybe I want you.”
Her shoulders tensed. “I’m not available.”
“Not even for the right price?”
She balked and bit back a laugh. Had he set out to get under her skin? “Are you propositioning me?” ~ within Chapter 3
The woman called again. “Storie Rae Bell?”
She cringed at hearing her full name, but Reid grinned. The smile reached his eyes and lifted his cheeks in a way that relaxed the hard lines of his face, his smile softening the bad-boy look his soul patch gave him. “Storie Rae.” He muttered her name as if he were feeling the sounds of the letters on his lips and tongue. “Fits you. All Southern and mysterious.”
Her name had always been another thing to make her stand out. Boys had laughed and girls had been brutal. She tried to gauge whether he was mocking her, but his gaze had dropped and now it slipped over her. He definitely wasn’t laughing. ~ within Chapter 9
