I received an advanced copy of the audiobook through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
Witch Please by Ann Aguirre and narrated by Ava Lucas is the first book in the author's new series Fix-It Witches. I asked to listen to this audiobook because several book reviewers whose opinions I generally agree with said it was a delightful lighthearted rom-com with a magical redheaded witch, a cinnamon-roll hero and lots of family hi-jinks. I did not find it lighthearted at all, there were a few moments, but honestly, there were so many dark and uncomfortable moments in this book that it left me cringing. The bi and gay characters in the book seem to be there as a nod to some marketing quota and not an accurate representation. I can’t even begin to explain how horrible the so-called beloved grandmother truly is with her hatred, her lies and refusal to accept her daughter and granddaughters for who they are and to want them to be happy. One of the many things that made this book a failure for me was that there was no resolution with the grandmother. So many other things had me shaking my head while listening to this book. How can someone consent if there is a spell on them? The conflict between witches and mundanes echoes real-world racism and white supremacy making the book feel very dark to me. The hero, baker Titus Winnaker’s interior monologues, came across as creepy, and then when you find out why all his previous relationships have failed … I have no words. The narrator did an excellent job bringing the characters to life, I just wish she had better material to work with. Steam Level: Medium.

The Story:

What a start to a new cute series. I hope there are a lot more of these stories in the wings. Danica and Titus are such a cute couple. I don’t quite jive with the she can never tell him she’s a witch storyline, in fact I thought we were gonna get some sort of work around it but I’m happy with how it all worked out. I really loved Danica’s close relationship with her cousin. I am my mother’s only child and have several cousin/sisters myself. Some of her other familial relationships required some tough love but it was definitely needed.

The Random Thoughts: ( )

After a messy breakup, Danica Waterhouse is content to focus on being a regular witch with no attachments. She even goes so far as to make a pact with her cousin to keep out of serious relationships, only have fun. This will not please her grandmother who coincidentally set her up with her ex, and who is also convinced that it's time Danica settles down with a full-blooded witch and stop messing with Mundanes, but she's tired of listening to her grandmother and cannot stand another blind date. Instead, Danica chooses to focus on Fix-It Witches, the business she co-owns with her cousin.

Then Titus - aka Cinnaman, a local bakery owner - walks into her shop needing help fixing a broken oven and it's pretty much attraction at first sight, for both of them. Danica knows that she should keep things casual, after all, Titus is a Mundane, and nothing can come from their relationship as it is forbidden to reveal yourself to a Mundane regardless of the relationship status.

Titus knows from the onset that Danica is different than anyone else he's been attracted to or dated in the past. Which is both good and terrifying as Titus hasn't had the best of luck in love. Seriously, we're talking moving to another country kind of breakups. Titus hopes that Danica is it for him, but in the back of he keeps waiting for the other shoe to drop.

This book started off fine for me. It was really a read that was, as I said, fine but worked its way up to good by the end. For me, what made it start out a bit difficult is Danica's family dynamic. Clearly, her grandmother doesn't have Danica's best interests at heart as seen by the way she constantly harangues Danica to date another witch. This extends to the dynamic between Danica and her cousin Clemintine as well. Clem does not like the fact that Danica is so attracted to Titus as it goes against the pact they made.

I just felt like these two relationships were so toxic, and although Clem is more redeemed for me by the end, I kind of hated the fact that on-page at least, no one tells either of them how awful they're being. To mean, Danica pretty much upends her life and happiness in order to avoid going against her family's beliefs. While I understand wanting to keep the peace between family members and not wanting to cause conflict. I wanted Danica to take a stand for herself which is something I didn't feel very satisfied with throughout even when Danica also acknowledges the toxicity.

Danica isn't the only one with family issues as Titus is also dealing with his father who moved on rather quickly - too quickly in Titus's mind - after the death of Titus and his sister's mother. His father has a new family that's growing and doesn't seem to care for his children's feelings.

Honestly, though I feel like Ann Aguirre was making a big statement about families and I feel like my normal reaction, anyone's normal reaction, in this situation is to be frustrated by it. So I guess I kind of have to give the author props for making me connect so emotionally with the story.

One of the things that I loved, of course, was Danica and Titus. When they're not trying to please everyone else except themselves and they have time with just them, they're a marvelous pair. Typically, I'm not a fan of the love/attraction at first sight trope, but Ann Aguirre really pulls it off well here. From the moment they meet, I wanted them together. Which I guess is a good way to keep me coming back to the story even with all the roadblocks that pop up between the two.

I also really like that witches are having a moment this season. Moving into the fall and especially Halloween I like seeing all the magical books coming out. In that regard, I really loved the mythology that Ann Aguirre has started here. I would have loved to learn more about witches in general whom the Mundane population is unaware exist. There's an interesting twist that happens about halfway through which ends up being a nice lead-in to another book (probably Clementines). I'm very interested to continue this series and hopefully, we'll get some more witchy background. ( )

I had a lot of fun with this book! I have had some luck with this author’s work in the past, although with another genre, so I was eager to give this romance a try. I found this audiobook easy to listen to for hours at a time. I am so glad that I decided to pick up this incredibly entertaining audiobook.

Danica is a witch. She has the ability to fix just about anything so she puts her skills to good use in the fix-it shop that she runs with her cousin. Titus runs a bakery just a couple of blocks from the Fix-It Witches shop and he stops in for some help when one of his ovens. These two are instantly drawn to each other and they have a lot of chemistry. There is one problem that might keep them apart – Danica will lose her magic if she marries a regular mortal. Danica is under intense pressure from her grandmother to get matched up with a man with magic but her mother just wants to see her happy.

I really liked the characters in this book. Danica and Titus were both dealing with some pretty big family issues. Seeing how they handled everything helped to develop their characters. I thought that they were a very good match and the chemistry between them was rather intense. I was invested in their relationship early on and really wanted to see them find a way to make it work. I also thought that the secondary characters were very well done and added a lot to the story.

Ava Lucas did a fantastic job with the narration. I thought that she did a phenomenal job with all of the character voices and added a lot of emotion to the story. I found her voice to be very pleasant and I had no problem listening for hours at a time. I think that this was the first time that I had the chance to listen to this narrator’s work but I hope to have the chance again soon.

I would recommend this book to others. I thought that this was a well-done romance with wonderful characters and just the right amount of magic mixed in. I look forward to reading more of this promising series.

I received a digital review copy of this audiobook from Dreamscape Media via NetGalley. ( )

Witch Please by Ann Aguirre
Paranormal romance / romantic comedy.
Danica is a witch that can fix machines with her powers. She knows her Grandmother will not allow Danica to have a relationship with a mundane but Titus is irresistibly charming. They make literal sparks with a simple hand touch. Danica appeals to a higher power to give her strength to walk away from Titus and for him to not to be heartbroken. But the two are drawn to each other as if by magic.

I loved the banter and charm of this book. Titus is adorable and his history of heartbreak makes you want to help him find his true love. I hated the manipulation of the Grandmother and won’t share any spoilers but am happy with the resolution.
Titus says he is bisexual and tells Danica about a past crush with a boy but he is also a virgin so that side of the story feels a little incomplete. The sex scenes between Danica and Titus are steamy and satisfying and also a bit on the light and humorous side.
The neighbor cat repeatedly visiting and allergic reaction were delightful.
My only complaint was the rather abrupt ending. Happy for now with the intention of forever.

🎧 I listened to an audiobook which was narrated by Ava Lucas. The narrator did a good job with voice variations and expressions of emotion. Speed of 1.0 felt like it was dragging and much slower than regular conversation so I listened mostly at 1.25 which is about the norm for me. There was a distinct male / female difference in the performance which helped visualize the characters as the story progressed.

Excerpt:
“She leaned forward over the counter, proping her chin on her hands. “How interesting. Would you care to tell me why?”
“Would you care to tell me your name?” He suspected it was too soon to declare he had decided to marry her and was already christening their babies in his brain. Two at least. No more than five. He had to act fast before his curse kicked in.”
Excerpt from Witch Please by Ann Acquire

I received a copy of the audiobook from NetGalley, Sourcebooks and Dreamscape Media. I also purchased a copy to share with my romance loving friends. ( )
