ARC Review: Witches Get Stitches (Stay a Spell, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Witches Get Stitches by Juliette Cross

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Violet Savoie has a plan. A dream, rather. To open her own tattoo shop, which caters to supernaturals in need of permanent charms. As a powerful Seer, she has the potent magic to cast every kind of spell. Except the kind to give werewolves control over their beastly side. And her business partner Nico needs help in the worst kind of way.


Nico Cruz has a secret. A motive, rather. To subtly stalk and seduce Violet until she finally recognizes they are fated to be together. Ever since their heated encounter in Austin on New Year’s Eve two years earlier, he’s been dying to get his hands—and his tongue—back on her body. He knows a woman like Violet can’t be courted in the usual way. Luckily, Nico has no scruples about misbehaving to get what he wants.


But when his former pack roams into town, and an old friend is far too interested in Violet, his focus shifts to the threat venturing into his territory. Nico may come across as the quiet, broody one, but the intruders are about to regret stepping foot in New Orleans. And when Violet goes missing, no charm or spell can keep Nico’s wolf at bay.

The heroine: Violet Savoie – she is a powerful Seer and an apprentice tattoo artist who wants to open her own shop. She also has some other abilities like telekinesis. She is not a relationship kind of girl but still has been searching for “the one”

The Hero(es): Nico Cruz – he is a werewolf from the Blood Moon pack. He left his pack after they did some shady stuff. When he meets Violet in his hometown, he has an interlude with her and immediately knows she is his mate.

The Story: Violet doesn’t believe Nico is “the one” and her attraction to him scares her so she runs home to New Orleans after their first meeting. However, Nico follows her not long after and since he is her brother-in-law’s brother, he is in her life.

Nico helps Violet out with her tattoo shop and becomes her partner and continually fights her growing feelings for him and keeps Nico in the “Friend-zone”. I really loved the back stories in this book, like how a witch originally cursed the a witch hunter so that every male descendant will have the werewolf curse and how even the supernatural community had prejudice against werewolves because of that. None would help them even though they didn’t deserve to be cursed because of something a distant relative did.

I liked how Violet was one of the few that sees that and wants to help the werewolves (not just Nico) to be in control of their wolf side so they don’t accidentally shift and hurt those they love. This was the first book in the series I have read and it definitely CAN be read as a stand-alone, I don’t feel that I missed anything by not reading the first two books.

However, after reading this book and liking it so much, I definitely want to read the first two books and plan to read the rest of the series. I can tell some of the romances in the next few books started showing themselves in this book. The supporting characters were awesome and I love how some are darker characters (Grims, Vampires, Wolves, and the Witches are lighter more whimsical characters).

This book had everything you could want in a paranormal romance, it had creative characters, two characters pining for each other, romance, plenty of steam, some suspense, magic, a great story and more. I can’t wait for the books where the Grim’s are the love interest. I need to know more about their dark powers.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
