Happy Halloween! Jinx And Her Werewolf Review/Excerpt

Happy Halloween

I thought this would be a great book to review for halloween because the characters themselves are really unique and believed to be strange by society as a whole I thought it kind of fit in with Halloween since thats when everyone can fit in no matter what or who they decide to be.

As a jinx, Thora has had to move around a lot. When her car breaks down, stranding her in Strange Hollow, she figures the town is as good a place as any to stay for a while. When she meets Daker, he is just one more reason for her to stay.

A werewolf, Daker knows Thora is his mate, but her being a mortal just adds one more reason to take things slow with her. Not only does he have to find a way to tell her he is a werewolf, and she is his mate, he has to explain that the residents of Strange Hollow aren’t exactly what they seem. After Daker claims Thora as his mate, Thora knows they can never be, not with her curse hanging over her head. She may be cursed to be a jinx for the rest of her life, but she’s also destined to kill the man she gives her heart to. Not wanting to be the cause of Daker’s death, she has to fight her feelings for him or watch the man she loves die.

My Thoughts
This book is one of my favorites because it has a lot of the things I like in books humor, romance, werewolves, and paranormal abilities. I really liked the town of "Strange Hollow" where everyone had their own unique abilities and pasts. I only wish it was real because it would definetely be a fun place to visit.

Thora had somewhat of a tough exterior, but she really was a kind person. Having the curse for so long took its toll and I was happy that she was able to find a place where she fit in.

Daker was an awesome hero whose wolf had a very strange personality for an alpha. His wolf made him that more interesting though and I loved how playful he was. Daker himself was a very dependable and strong character yet very sweet that you just can't help, but love him.

I highly recommend this loveable and unique tale about a "Jinx And Her Werewolf" by Marisa Chenery.


The sound of the deep, masculine voice that came from behind her caused Thora to jump. She cursed while she reared back and cracked her head on the raised hood. Slowly backing up, she said, “Damn it, that hurt. Didn’t anyone ever tell you not to sneak up on a person like that?”

Rubbing her head, Thora turned to see who stood at her back. Her hand stilled when she looked up at the lightest green eyes she had ever seen on a person. They reminded her of two pieces of jade. Her eyes skimmed over the face that came with them. And what a face it was. The man had a face that would put a male model to shame. Unable to tear her gaze away, Thora took in his straight nose, chiseled cheekbones and square jaw. His lips were firm and made her wonder what they would feel like pressed to hers. His straight hair brushed the tops of his shoulders, and seemed to be a mix of blonde and brown. Her fingers itched to run through it to see if it felt soft as it looked. She licked her lips, taking in the rest of him. He was built. She had to give him that. The tight black jeans and gray T-shirt he wore showed off the large muscles on his arms, chest and legs to perfection. He towered over her, and she was not short by any means at five foot seven. Thora guessed him to be about six foot six.

He stepped closer, breaking the spell she seemed to have fallen under. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to sneak up on you. Are you okay?”

Thora let her hand drop to her side and nodded. She cleared her throat before she spoke. “I’m fine. I just bumped my head. I’ve had worse.” She’d lost count of the number of times she’d had to go to a hospital’s ER to be patched up because of one of her “accidents.

He glanced over at her car. “Having car trouble?”

“Yeah.” Thora forced herself to turn and look at her car. “It just stopped and I can’t get it started again.”

He brushed past her and stuck his head under the hood. When he bent slightly forward to get a closer look at the engine, Thora bit back a silent moan while she watched the material of his jeans pull tighter across his hard, muscled ass. She bet she could bounce a quarter off it. There didn’t seem to be an inch of fat anywhere on him.

Lost in a fantasy of him stretched out across the hood of her car while she licked every inch of him, Thora jerked back to reality when she heard a loud popping sound. She moved around to stand next to the hunky man of her fantasies in time to see a fountain of oil suddenly shoot out of her engine and hit him smack in the face.
