Smoke on the Water by Lori Handeland

Abandoned beneath a black willow tree on the banks of a northern Wisconsin creek, Willow Black spent her entire childhood in foster care. Her entire life she's had terrifying visions, and it is these visions that eventually land her in a psychiatric facility. And so Willow takes her meds and believes she is getting better. Until she meets a fellow patient who doesn't think she is crazy at all. She thinks Willow is a witch. 

Willow's psychiatrist, Dr. Sebastian Crane, works hard to resist his feeling that he and Willow are destined to be together while also working to convince her that strange occurrences aren't the result of witchcraft… until he is thrown into the middle of a storm of supernatural events that can't be explained any other way…

Right from the beginning, I was hooked on this book. The plot twist in the first few chapters really surprised me, and that was the reason I couldn't put this book down. I wanted to find out what would happen to Willow and Sebastian. This book constantly had me on the edge of my seat.

I liked the romance in this book, but I didn't love the romance. I enjoyed watching them fight their attraction, but something just felt off about their relationship. There was a weird and creepy factor to their relationship that I just couldn't look past. I am not sure if I am even explaining correctly. They definitely had chemistry, but it was just...strange. After a while the romance also felt cheesy to me. They felt like the were soul mates, and it made me want to roll my eyes. It just seemed too cliche for me. They had some sweet and steamy moments, but those moments were overshadowed by the creepy parts and the cheesy parts.

Overall, I found this book extremely entertaining. I found the plot to be extremely interesting and addictive. The witch craft was always interesting to learn about, and I loved seeing the sisters kick booty with their powers. This was a fun series. My favorite book in this series was the first book, but I still liked the others. I am glad I had the chance to read this series!
