Book Description

Oy vey! Shit just got serious in Chicago. The Witches Union has discovered that Leigh Epstein has been dabbling in the dark arts, and now they want to become creative editors for Leigh’s paranormal romance, “Four-Bitten Fangtasy”, a book about a shape shifting-werewolf-vampire hybrid named Vlad. They definitely have something up their sleeves and they've assigned our young apprentice witch to a mentor named Gertie, who isn't quite up to snuff. Can she fulfill the contract and get FBF done before the deadline? What’s in it for the Union anyway?
To make matters worse, Leigh’s friends and family are still reeling from their last disastrous episode in Accidental Leigh. Will she make her Sister Sarah's lackluster love life even worse, by attempting to fulfill her erotic fantasy from her favorite BDSM/Navy SEAL/Amnesia novel? And yes, it is titled “Bound to Forget”.
Love is in the air, but so is catastrophe, now that Leigh is also getting some very strong feelings for Hunter, the hunky roofer turned Chicago Police Academy cadet.
Find out almost everything, and even learn about a Paranormal Pet Shop, what really sank the Titanic, magic brownies, how the Great Chicago Fire really started, and more in Serious Leigh, Book 2 of the Literal Leigh Romance Diaries by Melanie James

This is a promising follow-up to Accidental Leigh, and it True Leigh helps to have read that first.

Leigh is now joined by a mentor witch, and now that the witches's union has found out about her powers, they have plans for her and those powers. A very quick giggle of a story, and I am delighted to see Leigh's mentor will have a series of her own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilariously romantic December 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow, 'Serious Leigh' was so funny I about died laughing. My cheeks still hurt from smiling and and I might have pulled a muscle from laughing. I loved how the story was written. The 'brownie' episode will stay with me for a long time. I love the characters. They are funny, witty and sarcastic. Just my type. I can't wait to read more of this series. I look forward to more of Leigh's magical antics. A must add to your tbr list. Definitely a recommended read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to meet the Witches Union and Gertie!!! July 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Melanie has done it again!!! Another humerous adventure for Leigh and her best friends Lindsey and Kelly. I love how they take everything with a grain of salt once they all meet Gertie. Not sure I would be so easy going if I were to find out my best friend has all these witch powers and becomes friends with more witches. Gertie is great. Sure not your normal run of the mill person knowing that she has been frozen for over 100 years and all the crazy things that Gertie has done in her past but none the less so easy to fall in love with. Love her plantation in Lousiana. How is Leigh going to write the story for the witches union? Nothing but surpirses!!! I don't like going into to much detail so pick up this book and check it out. You won't be disappointed!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable August 2, 2014
By Angie P
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just loved this book. I finished it in one night again just like the first one. While I loved the first book, this one was even better, and more funny. Especially when you bring in another crazy witch. The way all the girls just cling to her, and attempt to show her the ropes is the best. I could not quit laughing at all the craziness she can get into without even trying really hard. I can't wait for the next one. Great job Melanie James:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Leigh had me laughing till I was crying!!!! August 2, 2014
By Jessica
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been waiting on this book since I finished Accidental Leigh. Melanie James is amazing at what she writes... This book had me laughing out loud until I was crying... The stuff that Leigh writes for her family and friends always seems to backfire in one way or another.. If you enjoy some romance and a good laugh this is the series for you. Hunter puts up with a lot of mischief.... Yes read them in order... Cannot wait to see what Melanie James is Brewing up for Hopeful Leigh... Happy Readings everyone...

5.0 out of 5 stars Witch Leigh is back !!!! August 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the 2nd book in the series and oh my goodness talk about gut busting laughs. This book was even more comical then the first.

Things pickup where we were left hanging in book 1.

Leigh has been transported to the Witches Union and she is given the news that she has broken rules and that the 3 leaders are going to take a part in her book writing. She is also given a trainer by the name of Gertie.
Leigh learns her specialty seems to be the writing magic and she has to pay dues to the witches union.

Leigh finds herself in Denver and oh boy can things get any weirder? I think so keep reading lol.

Leigh has her hands full with trying to figure out how to remove the magic from the 2 college men who are totally enthralled with her 2 girlfriends Kelly and Lindsey.

But instead of following the Witches Union rules she was given she decides to take matters into her own hands. She sits down to write and hopefully fix everyone she cares about issues.

Leigh and Hunter’s relationship is slow to grow but I really enjoy reading all their mishaps from the Zoo to their first date out for dinner. And the Zoo issue is caused by well lets say they know both of the men.

Then the comical begins. Poor Gertie is drunk of all things .. and interrupts a passionate moment between Hunter and Leigh.
And oh no a paranormal pet shop what has Gertie done while she was drunk?
And just what is Esmeralda up to?

Well you will have to go grab a copy and find out..

This book is well written and kept me laughing through the entire thing. I can not wait for the next book in the series.

I enjoyed this story it was fun and entertaining. Laugh out loud moments again. This time Leigh gets help with her Witchcraft, from another fun witch, I like how the author made her Mrs O'Leary and her two magical misadventures are a riot. This is an enjoyable series full of lighthearted fun.
