Hello Gemmies! I have an exciting new book review to share with you today Please note: I received a digital ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest and fair review.
Resting Witch Face by Juliette Cross is a new adult paranormal romance and the fifth book in the Stay A Spell Series. Juliette Cross has done it again! Who knew I needed a dirty talking vampire in my life?!??! I have a new favorite book boyfriend and his name is Rueben Dubois!! I absolutely adored this book! Resting Witch Face is a wonderful addition to this feel good series.
Resting Witch Face has been a long time coming and we finally get Jules and Ruebens story. Throughout the series we have seen these two try to avoid each other, while each case brings them closer and closer together. We get to find out what broke them up in the past and follow them as they work to reconcile their past hurts and overcome their present fears. Resting Witch Face is very much a character driven story. As the eldest Savoie sister and enforcer of magical New Orleans, Jules has devoted her life to taking care of everyone else. I love the emotional character growth that we see her go through. I especially like seeing a softer side of Jules.
Rueben, oh where do I start?!?! I LOVED all the facets of emotions we see our favorite alpha vampire go through. Rueben encompasses everything that I love in a main character. He's sexy, fierce, and loves very deeply. He is also the perfect match for Jules. Put in a situation where these two have to travel and work closely together is perfection. The tension and angst between them is super hot and top tier. Both characters are very well fleshed out and likable. The emotional connection Rueben and Jules forge is amazing. My heart just gushed with each page I read. I even cried a few times!
The world building in Resting Witch Face is expanded as we get to travel away from New Orleans to London, Scotland, and Salem Massachusetts. Each location feels atmospheric and adds to the overall mood of the story. We need a Stay A Spell world tour! The way Juliette Cross is able to seamlessly weave together romance, action, humor, spicy scenes, mystery, intrigue, and everyday life makes this entire series a winner!
If you are a fan of second chance romances, toucher her and die vibes, extreme mutual pining, sexy vampires, strong powerful witches, steamy romance, and heartfelt family moments go read this book! I give Resting Witch Face 5 out of 5 gems. I cannot wait to read more stories in this world! Happy Reading!
