Tessa Von Hellengaard is a real witch. Magical spells aside, she’s snarky and selfish, and the other witches in her silent spell coven are fed up with her. Their plan to reform Tessa involves taking away her magic, saddling her with one hundred extra pounds and sending her to a weight loss spa. For good measure they call in Liam Kennedy, a charming and sexy fairy godfather, to teach her some manners. Desperate to regain her magic and determined to shed the weight, Tessa soon realizes that protecting her heart from Liam will prove to be her greatest challenge.
“I do have one question.” She twirled her beer bottle as she spoke, without taking a second sip. “If you’re my fairy godperson, aren’t you supposed to grant me three wishes?”
He laughed. He couldn’t help it. She was so clueless.
“No, that would be a genie, a different game altogether.” He took one last swig of beer and set the empty bottle on the table. “But, just for the sake of conversation and getting to know each other, tell me what your first wish would be if I were your genie.”
“You’ll do it?”
“If I can. Go ahead, your reasonable wish is my command.”
Tessa suddenly looked as satisfied as a cat with a canary’s feather in its teeth.
“I wish you’d take off your shirt.”
That certainly wasn’t what he was expecting to hear. Contessa Von Hellengaard was a witch in a million. Someone at Fairy Godmother Inc. had done him a good turn indeed when they’d assigned Tessa’s case to him. Of course, they’d likely just wanted to pass the buck after reading her file.
He stood and pulled his t-shirt off over his head.
The look on her face was priceless.
He watched her eyes wander over his body. He didn’t feel the least bit self-conscious. Not after the hours he put in at the gym every morning. It was actually nice to have his hard work appreciated.
“Turn around.” Her voice sounded far less imperious than usual.
He did as she bid. He knew what she was after and it wasn’t her first fairy experience between silk sheets with him. She was looking for wings.
He was more than happy to give her an eyeful.
I loved this novella, it was humorous with a sassy and feisty heroine.
Tessa is a witch who doesn't think about anybody except herself, she uses her magic for everything especially when people get in her way.
Tessa is sentenced by the Upper Hallow's Witch Council to work with a 'fairy godmother' who actually turns out to be Liam a hot fairy godfather, who is going to help Tessa become the better version of herself, one who thinks about others.
She is unknowingly sent to a weight loss spa, after she wakes up there the first morning she finds herself sporting an extra one hundred pounds, the only way to lose the pounds are to help and be nice to others, of course it takes her a while to figure this out.
She becomes friends with Marcus, Bethany and Claudia, and through her frienship with them she learns how to care about others.
Sparks fly whenever Tessa and Liam share a scene together, they are such a cute couple, their scenes together are very funny and Liam can hold his own up against Tessa's snark.
I would have loved this to be longer, it was so good I could have read a full novel.
I look forward to more of Mickelson's work.
I give this 4/5.
