Don’t Hex and Drive by Juliette Cross

Genre: Fantasy/Paranormal Romance

Page Count: 346

Rating: 3/5

Each book in this series is set to follow a different Savoie sister and this time around its Isadora’s turn. 

She’s notoriously quiet and introverted, preferring the peace and quiet of her garden to the hustle and bustle of New Orleans. 

Despite keeping to herself Isadora manages to attract the attention of Devraj – a member of the Vampire elite who has been called into town to investigate a string of disappearances that have suspected vampire involvement. After their first meeting however Devraj now has Isadora in his sights and will stop at nothing in his quest to win her affections. 

This was a cute little romance with a somewhat socially awkward main character (which I loved) and a romantic interest who new exactly what he wanted.

The only downside was that I found the plot a little too predictable but I can let that slide as the romance was always intended to be the main focus of the story.

I will say though that I still love how Cross has integrated her paranormal world into the ‘human’ world, it makes for a very refreshing read as the whole thing feels seamless and so believable. This is largely because there’s not a whole lot of time put into highlighting the difference between your bog standard humans and the supernatural creatures, which is different to what you find in a lot of fantasy/paranormal romances and I think this is what make the whole thing feel so fresh. That and the fact that she happily squeezes in an abundance of pop culture references throughout this series which I greatly enjoy!

Of course there is also a nice little bit of steaminess in the romance which never goes amiss!

Overall this was a light and easy read. The first book in this series Wolf Gone Wild is still my favourite and I will definitely be picking up the next book Witches Get Stitches for the next Savoie sister romance which I think is Violet’s. 

I am 100% holding out for Jules and Ruben’s book at some point in the future 🤞

Let me know your thoughts if you’ve read this one.

See you all soon,
