REVIEW: Barely Bewitched by Kimberly Frost

This summary is from the FrostFiction website. 
Messing with magic can spell disaster!

Welcome to Duvall, Texas, where Tammy Jo Trask has just unleashed an accidental Armageddon.
Tammy Jo’s misfiring magic has attracted the unwanted attention of WAM, the World Association of Magic. Now, a wand-wielding wizard and a menacing fire warlock have come to Duvall to train her for a dangerous mandatory challenge. But is there more to their arrival than they claim?
When a curse leads to a toxic spill of pixie dust, the town comes unglued and the doors between the human and faery worlds begin to open. To rescue the town and to face the impossible magical test, Tammy needs the help of incredibly handsome Bryn Lyons, but WAM has declared him totally off-limits. To avoid deadly consequences, Tammy probably ought to follow the rules this time…
On the other hand, rebellion is an old Texas tradition.

My thoughts...I LOVE THIS SERIES.  Kimberly Frost is rocketing to the top of my favorite authors list.  I literally could not put this book down.  It was a quick read (312 pages),  packed with action, adventure, paranormal creatures and a few steamy (but subtle) scenes. 

In the first book, Would-Be-Witch, we are introduced to Tammy Jo.  She is from a long line of powerful witches.  Only problem is, her powers don't exactly work, at least not the way she intends.  This second book continues with her fumbling her way through the magical world.  She is now in trouble for her reckless spellcasting and has to take a witch test.  This book contains even more paranormal beings than the first book, such as fae and changelings.  The drama continues as Bryn and Zach compete for Tammy Jo's love.  I still am not sure who I am rooting for, there are so many mysteries surrounding Bryn.  I can't wait for the next book. 

If you have not read these and if you love witchy stories, I highly recommend them.  There are at least three books expected in the Southern Witch series.
