Lights. Camera. Inaction.

Ivy Wilde, the laziest witch in the West, is still entangled with the Hallowed Order of Magical Enlightenment. That's not a bad thing, however, because it gives her plenty of excuses to spend more time with sapphire eyed Raphael Winter, her supposed nemesis. And when he comes knocking because he needs her to spy on the latest series of Enchantment, she jumps at the chance. Hanging around a film set can't be hard ... or dangerous ... right?




BOOK REVIEW:

When you have a fling after a night of drunken Karaoke, things always seem a little emotionally messy afterward.

Winter and Ivy basically act like teenagers. LOL. They are unable to have an adult conversation about what happened, instead, Ivy resorts to taxi stalking.



If Adeptus Exemptus Raphael Winter, with his lapis-lazuli eyes which could stop a herd of stampeding women in their tracks, happened to be finishing work around this hour…



I did have to google lapis-lazuli and it is a very nice color. But all googling aside… these two are kinda cute the way they behaved. 


lapɪs ˈlazjʊlʌɪ,ˌlapɪs ˈlazjʊli/

noun

a bright blue metamorphic rock consisting largely of lazurite, used for decoration and in jewelry.

a bright blue pigment formerly made by crushing lapis lazuli.

a bright blue color.




One thing leads to another and Ivy is back on the job, but this time undercover in Scotland, working as a runner for the T.V. show she adores, Enchantment.

Think Survivor, but of the magical kind where everybody playing seems to get a role, some a little deadlier than others.

Ivy sees the bitchier side of being on a reality show while doing some super sleuthing with Rafe. Naturally, with shenanigans-a-plenty, the writing ensures the pages will turn rapidly.

I liked the curveballs thrown in and the whodunnit is hard to pick this time around. The obvious is too obvious.

Brutus ups his ‘tude in Star Witch and you can’t help wanting to read more of him among the pages. He is rather a cheeky little guy.

Rafe is becoming more of a rule-breaker around Ivy, mainly because she’s already breaking the rules so he has to go with the flow.

Star Witch is fun, witty and easy to read.


And oh… my to that ending!
