Hemlock "Hemi" Butterbean does. She's got what some would call the familiar from hell. But he's not really a familiar. He's a warlock, one of the infamous Trifecta of Doom, under a curse that's turned him into a hellhound haranguing cat. Hemi finds out just how familiar her new kitty can be when the power of her fantasies make him a flesh-and-blood man ready to see to her every desire.
Chasing witches was what got Raven Cherrywood into this predicament to begin with, but he quickly realizes that the shy witch has much more to offer than her beautiful plus-sized curves. She's got a wild heart he must win for his own.

The Quick & The Hot: Ro-medy at it's best
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
The story, while not original, has a very authentic feel to it. Yes, boy meets girl, sex ensues and a romance is born but there's a touching level of insight into this version that exceeds your typical "bed romp".
Who was your favorite character and why?
I'd be hard pressed to pick just ONE favourite character. Each speaks to you in their own voice and has their quirks, flaws & benefits. Hemmie (or Hemlock) is insecure and there's a whisper of where it originates in passing but she's also confident and a little daring, like all of us. Raven is the put-upon little brother trying to make a name for himself but he's also wicked in his own way and almost forces you to like him in spite of his predicament.
What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?
Her voice is smooth, with just the right inflection to convey the emotion of the story without interfering in it. The range of her voice, from the airy and light tones that point out the humour to the heady caramel-like texture of her voice when the "good bits" come up, she lets the reader hear the STORY and not just her voice reading it.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Any additional comments?
This story had me wrapped from the beginning. This was, surprisingly, my first experience with this author (although I assure you it won't be the last) and I found her point of view to be quite delightful. She's at times heavily sarcastic while still breezing through to the comedic end. Her romance is heavy but it suits well into the storyline and adds to it, as opposed to detracting as sometimes that can happen. The story itself has a breeze of fresh air as a "man in a mess" instead of the "damsel in distress" theme and is a nice, quick pick-me-up. I'd highly recommend this to readers of any comedy/romance authors such as Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson series.
