Editorial Reviews

Review

“Redford (The Seven Year Witch) delivers a solid story with a bit of mystery and some adventurous sex. Collections that are looking to include a lighter take on sexy romps in the style of Laurell K. Hamilton or Sunny will find this a solid addition.”
—Library Journal on Maximum Witch

“I’ve read many excuses for characters to have a threesome, but Jodi Redford is the first to use the fear of a zombie apocalypse as a catalyst for dirty, dirty deeds. This is one of the many reasons I adore That Voodoo You Do.”
—Bitten By Books

“Jodi Redford has penned an outstanding story involving witches, their familiars and forbidden love.”
—The Romance Studio on The Seven Year Witch

Book Description

After too many years as a voodoo queen’s familiar, Samael betrayed his boss to get away. The deal he’s offered to get off death row stinks. Become the familiar of his enemy? He’d rather be dead. Until he’s rescued by one misguided white witch.
Marabella’s overwhelming attraction to the demon is an irresistible temptation to be rid of the curse guarding her virginity. But one kiss leads to a night that saddles Sam with the one thing he didn’t want, a conscience, and a connection that puts Marabella’s soul in danger.

Review:

Oh Sam! Sam, Sam, Sam! Where can I find my very own demon? Where, I ask! Dang it! Now I have a crush on not one, but ALL FOUR of the Black Magic men! It all started with Griffin, a tiger shifter. Of course, I had to love Logan, a werewolf. Then I got my pants charmed off my Max, my very first shark shifter. And now I am smitten with Samael, a beyond hawt demon with a conscience. *fans self* And I am seriously considering reading the whole series again simply because I love them so! *nods* (Side note - I actually just did practically read all of That Voodoo You Do as I was going back over Sam's first appearances. Ironically right after saying I was going to re-read the series. As in just. right. now. Man do I need me a Bengal tiger shifter familiar!)

So we briefly met Sam in book 1of That Old Black Magic series, That Voodoo You Do. Sam was the instrumental "soul" who kept popping up unexpectedly and giving Jemma little hints here and there, ultimately aiding in her victory; and squelching the approaching zombie apocalypse. Yay, Sam! We also had mention of Marabella in book 1 and then met her briefly in book 2, The Seven Year Witch. I believe she was mentioned in book 3, Maximum Witch, though her part was insignificant to the main characters of that story. And finally, in Getting Familiar With Your Demon, Marabella gets to divest herself of that dang curse of virginity with the help of the hunky demon Samael.

Sam helps save the day - and the world from, you know, Zombies eating everyone's brains and stuff. Cut to ... a bit of time has lapsed; about six months.

4 out of 5 stars!!! This novel is a great new addition to Jodi's That Old Black Magic Series! It takes you on an adventure that you might not expect (I know I didn't) and turns into a wonderful story about love, responsibility, and what it means to have a conscience.

I will admit that the first few chapters made me think I wasn't going to enjoy this novel but around the time that Nikki (one of Sam's cousins) gets kidnapped and they start looking into Bella's past I was so intrigued with this novel that I couldn't help but love it by the end!! The characters are very amusing and clever! I loved the twists in this novel! In addition to finding out that Domino isn't a complete hard ass like I always thought she was. =0)

I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Jodi's That Old Black Magic Series! In addition, this novel could be read as a standalone book (I believe) so if you like paranormal books that deal with demons, witches, reapers and mates then this is the book for you!!

Technically you don't have to read the other books in the series to pick up this book and understand things although the first book does mention a character that has some importance here. You really want to read the three books leading up to this one though, mostly because they're funny, have some great and interesting mythology and are smoking hot.

Until her fortuitous second death, Sam Gorasola was the demon familiar to a voodoo nutter named Nettie who wanted to raise a zombie army to take over the world. With a little help from Sam, she was defeated but the unfortunate byproduct was that his familiar contract was bought up by someone even more unpleasant, the ice cold Pricilla, who's kept him in the Demon Detainment Center for the last six months where he's been whipped and tortured, lately to the unholy strains of It's Raining Men by The Weather Girls. Working for Pricilla is as bad as it gets, since she's obsessed with having him collect souls by whatever means, leaving no time at all for any actual life. All work and no play make Sam a very crabby demon, the kind with no conscience - he does however have the need to get stabby with someone, a need thwarted by a white witch with a rescue complex named Marabella.

Sam is desperate to break away from Pricilla but the only way is to break the familiar seal and it's never been done. His cousins Nikki and Cass had taken over his bachelor pad while he'd been gone and may have found a way - mind-blowing sexy times with a white witch. But where, oh where will he find one of those who might be interested in him? Looks like Sam will be doing some wooing. Right. Marabella won't know what hit her.

Marabella is cute and funny.

Thanks to Jodi Redford I will never picture a cute little black cat when I think of a witch’s familiar. Of course, thanks to Jodi Redford, I will never look at a lot of things the same way again, but that’s another story entirely. ;)

Getting Familiar With Your Demon is Marabella’s story. Marabella has been around throughout That Old Black Magic Series, but mainly in the background. She’s a loyal friend, a witch who practices white magic and she spends a lot of her time trying to get out from under the control of her mother. She was about the most unlikely witch in her coven to end up falling for a demon. So, logically, that’s exactly who Marabella is destined to end up with. As the story unfolds, the possibility becomes even more unlikely. That’s what makes the books in this series so much fun.

The mythology in these books turns every preconceived notion about witches, shifters, demons and other supernaturals upside down. There’s enough of the familiar there to keep it balanced, but beyond that, there are no rules. Demons aren’t all bad, angels aren’t all good and shifters can be almost any animal imaginable – really. I love that about these books. There are no rules and just when you think you know where the story is going to go, it takes you in another direction entirely.

If you haven’t started That Old Black Magic Series yet, start with That Voodoo You Do. These books aren’t for every reader. (Ahem… those cute little warnings added to the descriptions are for real ;) ) If, however, you are looking for a good, sexy and different paranormal series it is definitely worth checking out. The stories and plots are good, the guys are hot and there is plenty of mystery, action and romance. A perfect diversion from the norm.
