Review – Bewitch (VET #5) – by Felicity Heaton
** NO Spoilers**
Bewitch is the 5th book in the ‘Vampire Erotic Theatre’ series by the very talented Felicity Heaton.
This is Payne’s story and, unlike most of the books so far, the setting for this story was away from the theatre and our usual adored cast of characters. This however, does not detract in any way from the book – if anything, it gives the reader the chance to fully get to know and understand Payne without being distracted by the other hunky vamps he works and lives with (though we do get to see them all again during this story – phew!!)
Payne is on a mission to help Andreu & Chica (Varya) and he needs the assistance of someone in the fae world. This is where he encounters Elissa, who is a witch. There’s an instant spark between them and throughout the story we view the development of a relationship between the 2 – trust on both parts, or lack of it in this case, is a big issue. Ever so slowly, we discover what has happened in Payne’s life that has led to him being the man he is today…. This is truly an emotional roller coaster ride……..
My heart broke for Payne, and I admit I shed a few tears (more than once!) I just kept hoping that things would work out right for him. He is such a troubled, dark and broken man……. but you get the impression that there is much more to him that will only be seen if he finds the right lady to trust and give his heart to!!
Elissa was sassy, funny, caring, big hearted and engaging…. she is a bit of a lost soul too I think, but we begin to understand what she’s all about as the tale unfolds.
Bewitch is hotter and a fair bit darker than the previous books in the VET series have been. There’s a whole lot of physical attraction between Payne & Elissa. The story also includes well handled, hot as hades, BDSM scenes. We encountered a lot of passion, suspense, a touch of humour and a lot of fabulous verbal interaction between the 2 characters – there’s some great comments and more than a few tremendous one-liners….
I thoroughly enjoyed the previous books in the VET series and Payne’s book was no exception…. but I honestly think it’s better than the rest…. Felicity never fails to deliver and she has outdone herself with Bewitch…. I highly recommend the book and give it a 5* rating!!!
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review…..
