Book Description

How does a girl become a witch? By accident, of course!
Leigh Epstein is a grief stricken and lonely elementary school teacher that is devastated by the brutal and unexpected death of her true love at the hands of a careless writer. She overcomes her grief by taking matters in her own hands and takes up a little romance writing to resurrect her vampire-werewolf book-boyfriend. Leigh gets more than she bargained for when she discovers that every steamy erotic scene she creates is magically reenacted by her family, friends and coworkers.
In her hilarious first diary, Leigh unwittingly sets her parents up for a weekend dinner party that they will never forget. She has two weeks to find out what her new found magic is capable of. Can she prevent a wild erotic encounter that could devastate her sweet parent’s marriage? What and who else will get caught up in her magic spells?
Read a story so witchingly fun, that you won’t be able to put it down and you will be eagerly awaiting the rest of the Literal Leigh Romance Diaries!

5.0 out of 5 stars Side-stitching fun! June 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book, and I kid you not, in less than 3 hours! Nearly that entire time I was laughing so hard I had tears STREAMING down my face!

All I can say is; poor Hunter, you didn’t know WHAT you were getting into but was a great sport about it all! Leigh had no CLUE what she was doing but towards the end finally figured it out! And Luna?! Oh goodness she reminds me SOOO much of my own cat although instead of being standoffish to the owner she’s usually that way towards strangers, at least at first. I loved all of the friends, and even the poor parents; never mind what they all went through!

The only downside to the book is that it ended too soon!! I’m suffering from the ‘blahs’ because I keep going and expecting there to be more to it and there isn’t! However there’s two bonus snippets at the end, and that’s all I’m going to say, that kind of make up for it! I’m definitely going to wait excitedly for the next book, and snatch it up as soon as possible! I’m sooo glad I was introduced to Melanie James and am adding her to my list of “must haves” for the future!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating. June 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of the most charming and delightful stories I have ever read! It is the fast paced first installment to what I believe will be an exciting series. Its a tough in cheek and laugh out loud adventure of an average school teacher who unwittingly and accidentally becomes a witch....and it seems like her cat Luna knows more about it than Leigh!
Every time she tries to do good with her new found gift, something goes terribly arye.....the most unpredictable things are happening to friends and family.
I can't remember the last time I laughed my way through a book! I am looking forward to the next installment to find out about,.....wait for it.....The Witches Union, local 1313 ...Yep, that's right! Leigh has been summoned to appear on charges of practicing without training and owed dues!!!!!! LOL.
Totally Captivating! I have to call this a must read. Melanie James, just Brilliant!

Let me say that I was so excited about the release of this book. Just the cover made me smile.
And as soon as it released I grabbed it and didn’t put down my kindle til I was done reading.

We have Leigh a school teacher with a book boyfriend fetish more or less. She compares men in her real life almost to the ones in her books. HAHA the word Marshmallow is used to compare to one man she dated named Carl who is a school teacher also.
Leigh has an adult toy chest that would put most adult toy stores to shame. Too funny.

After the death of one of her favorite book boyfriends she decides to write a book and goes in search of items for a writing cave. She finds an antique desk for free and the old woman just wants it gone.

Without out giving to much away let me just say.

WEIRD things begin to happen as she writes at the desk including her cat Luna being more weird than normal. Things start to happen to her friends, her parents and to herself.

While over at one of her friends houses Leigh meets Hunter.
Will Hunter become her real life book boyfriend??

Kudos to Melanie James !!!
This book was fantastic. It’s comical I laughed so hard while reading this book, romantic, sexy and very well written.

Now go grab your copy and figure out what an old desk and a crazy cat named Luna may have to do with it or is it all in Leigh’s head?

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Witchy June 13, 2014
By Vida
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was utterly charming. From the first page and getting to meet Leigh who is head over heels in love with her book boyfriend (we all can relate) to meeting her best friends had me captured. Once the charismatic Hunter entered the story I was hooked. Leigh and her friends are comical and I had so many laugh out loud moments people thought I was watching a video and was surprised when I said nope a great author who's wonderful at storytelling. I so can't wait to see what happens to Leigh,her friends and Luna who is a total scene stealer. Kudos Melanie you have a winner on your hands.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can honestly say that I have never laughed as hard in my life as I did while reading Accidental Leigh!! I'm talking full on LAUGH OUT LOUD make you snort kind of laughs!!! Melanie James has created a surprising new world with some amazing characters in her new series and I CAN NOT WAIT for the next book so that I can find out what kind of trouble Leigh gets herself into.
I have already read A Valentine Surprise by the author and LOVED IT and after reading this book I have to read everything that she's written! She is the kind of author that could write about anything and I would read it!!! If you're considering downloading this book and want to read a book that you can not put down until you finish it then look no further!!!! This is a MUST READ!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay! August 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Accidental Leigh was a fairly entertaining ADULT paranormal romance with some laugh out loud funny moments. However, I'm not sure whether I will read the next book in the series because the character development left a lot to be desired and b/c, for the most part, the story itself sort of felt and/or read like a series of sexual antics, sexual innuendoes, snarky remarks and bizarre events rather than a cohesive story. I don't really know what Leigh looks like which made visualizing her impossible and as for her personality the information provided is far too sketchy and superficial. On the surface Leigh seemed nice enough and I even related to some of her trials as a single women (including her fixation on Vlad, & preoccupation with fantasy romance lol) and some of her childhood traumas. However, I wanted to care more for her and understand her better. The plot is actually original and shows potential but the author has to move the series beyond the superficial "One liner" presented here to maintain my interest. Although, we weren't told much about him, I still really liked Hunter and right now if I were to decide to read the 2nd book it would be primarily b/c I'm curious about how things turned out for him.

As for the complaint about the abrupt ending, frankly I sort of anticipated that it would probably end at the point at which it did end b/c it seemed like a good place for the transition into the next book. Consequently, I wasn't overly upset about where this book ended. I was more disappointed that this book didn't have more substance. Yes, there is a lot of profanity, suggestive language that could be considered crass and a lot of focus on "getting laid" but none of that bothered me. I saw it as straight forward, adult, "no holds barred," sexually suggestive humor.
