I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This debut is a dual POV, opposites attract, fake dating, witchy vibes, snarkiness, nature love, fierce besties, and a devilish amount of steam.

About A Witch’s Guide to Fake Dating a Demon

Muriel accidentally sumons a demon. Unfortunately, Ozroth can’t leave until he makes a bargain with her – getting her soul in exchange for a bargain. So how does she keep her soul while explaining the sinfully gorgeous stranger hanging around – he’s her new BF, of course.

My thoughts about A Witch’s Guide to Fake Dating a Demon

Muriel is relatable – she wants to hang out with her friends, work on her garden, and avoid her overly controlling mother. The one who won’t stop pushing Muriel to live up to her full potential.

Ozroth is in a similar situation. Formerly, the best at collecting souls. Now, cursed with a soul and catching feelings for Muriel. But his mentor has given him an ultimatum – collect Muriel’s soul or else.

Two MCs with instant chemistry and attraction trying to find the solution to their problems. The secondary characters are delightfully quirky. Set in an alternate PNW, magic is openly practiced and supernatural beings and humans live together. Naked mermaid in the town’s fountain anyone?

In closing

Fast, fun, and satisfying, A Witch’s Guide to Fake Dating a Demon is perfect for fans of Lana Harper and Erin Sterling.

Thank you Berkley for the ARC.
