How to Spell Disaster: Unfortunate Spells Book 1 is a paranormal romance by Jennifer Laslie. Tucker was having a run of bad luck. Not only had his dream job, the promotion he had been grooming himself for, been given to someone else, but his luck with the ladies was nonexistent. When an antique book came into his possession, he thought his luck might change, especially when he attempted one of the spells. He could not have been more wrong. A simple spell to attract love did just that, but the problem was, it worked too well. Male, female, it didn't matter, everyone wanted him, and their hungry obsession only heightened as time passed. He was told true love's kiss would break the spell, but how can he find the one when he is drowning in a tide descending upon him, and their appetite for him is only increasing?

A first-person perspective is by no means my favorite, but when it is executed as expertly as Jennifer Laslie does in How to Spell Disaster, I can't help but love it. This was first-person perfection, pulling me straight in and instantly connecting me to the main character. There were scenes in this book that reminded me of the movie Love Potion Number 9. It had me chuckling, cringing, and just begging for Tucker to see the truth before him. I enjoyed this light-hearted romantic comedy, which carries with it the clear warning be careful what you wish for and don't dabble with things you don't understand. I enjoyed the real feeling of the main characters; even the cat Athena was perfectly written. While in the extreme, it was fun watching roles reverse as Tucker became the tasty little morsel on the office women's menu, and he gets a taste of what being on the other side of such advances is like. Humorous, fun, and entertaining, How to Spell Disaster is a perfect read for lovers of romcoms, especially for those who like an extra touch of magic injected.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book had me laughing!!!
By Michael and Emily Hopper on September 17, 2019
SPOILERS!!!

Okay I’m over here dying laughing. Y’all when you meet Cayli you will totally understand. “Meow”.

Okay so this young man, Tucker, is having a rough go of things. His love life doesn’t exist, he got passed over for his promotion, and he’s just super frustrated with life. When he gets an antique book from his friend he translates the page it continues to open to. After gathering all the components to what he believes is a love spell he decides it can’t hurt to try and cast it, he doesn’t believe after all. He couldn’t have been more wrong.

Tucker’s love life goes from non-existent to absolutely dangerous. From women just looking at him, to women clawing him up, to women stalking him, and then to hoards of women literally chasing him through the streets. Nowhere is safe from the crazy ladies who all want a piece, and we all know exactly which piece they want.

Tucker asks his friend Brantley for help in trying to break the spell and inadvertently gets help from Brantley’s younger sister Natalie as well. Nothing is working and Tucker ends up putting, not only himself but, Natalie in danger. They try to cast a second spell to try to fix the first and in all the frustration Natalie kisses Tucker, breaking the spell the way he was told to break it in the first place.

This book takes you for a fun ride filled with laughter. I enjoyed every bit of it!
