Willa Jameson is having one whopper of an identity crisis. Odd memory flashes that aren’t hers. A sultry voice in her head that’s obsessed with sex. Even weirder, she finds herself in the jaws of a rogue leviathan, dragged to the bottom of the ocean-and rescued by a hunky…”shark”?
The last thing Sheriff Max Truitt expects to find on his daily, deep-Atlantic patrol is a human-especially one who breathes underwater. Compelled to take her home, he waits for the beauty to wake up and reveal her name. Instead he’s treated to a punch in the nose, then a sexy romp hot enough to boil water.
The next morning, embarrassed by the sizzling, scandalous things the voice in her head drove her to do, Willa slips away. But if there’s one thing a determined shark excels at, it’s tracking his favorite meal.
Solving the mystery that is Willa is no simple task. When they finally unlock a dangerous secret hidden deep in her subconscious, it drives a wedge between them…and puts them in a desperate race against an evil that seeks to rain down a watery Armageddon on all mankind.
Warning: This book does not contain sex with a puffer fish. There’s not even sex with a seahorse. However, there’s plenty of smoking-hot lovin’ with a shark. And even a steamy M/F/M threesome. So slap on your snorkels and swim fins, things are about to get wet and wild.
Why I Started Reading This Book and Final Verdict
I picked Maximum Witch up as part of my All Series, All Summer challenge. After realizing that I had been reading a lot of YA books and that I needed a break from it, I decided I need some adult entertainment. Double meaning fully intended. I loved both previous books in this series, and I knew Jodi would deliver. I wasn’t disappointed. I am well on my way to being part of Jodi’s fan club.
Need to save the world? Have a threesome! What? It’s a solid plan in times of crisis, and Jodi Redford executes it brilliantly. What I love about this series is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously — shark shifters, anyone? — yet provides us with a wonderful (and often necessary) escape. When I have the time, it is easy to sit down and read these books in a single afternoon, and that’s exactly what I did with Maximum Witch.
Despite this being a series, you don’t have to have read That Voodoo You Do or The Seven Year Witch to understand what’s going on in Maximum Witch. And other than Willa showing up as a character in one or both (I forget, honestly) of these books, there is really very little overlap. What I’m saying is that you can pick up this book read on with pleasure without being confused because you’re missing some vital information.
If you’re looking for a fun romp in the water with a HEA, I would thrust a copy of Maximum Witch into your arms, and then skip off happily into the sunset. Max is a shark shifter! Willa is a [name redacted to avoid spoiling anything]! Together the sparks fly! Also, they try to save the world. What more could you want from a lighthearted PNR? I don’t really have more to say than that, other than I know that I am going to continue seeking out other books by Jodi Redford because her books are funny, sexy, and my own little guilty pleasure.
