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.


“So you’re saying the real problem is that I am acting like a witch?”

Her aunt leaned forward and shook her head. “No, my dear, the real problem is that you’re acting like a bitch.”

Contessa Von Hellengaard is a witch who disregards everybody just so she can have her way. Known as Tessa, she loves to cast spells without thinking twice and because of this, she was punished by her councel to make her learn and understand the more important things in life. Liam the sexy and charming fairy is the one who’s assigned to Tessa’s case, her “fairy godmother”.

Witch Weigh is a delightful quick fix for you magical craving and romance. Although Witch Weigh is short, it was entertaining and funny to read. I also love the weight angle that the author did – powerful message and inconvenient method and tactic yet effective. Tessa and Liam is a cute couple, the relationship needs refining but effective nonetheless.

Witch Weigh is a quick read if you need a break from your reading plan and usual genre. Witch weigh though needs to step up from its competition, there’s really nothing new here – nothing to make a mark, asides the lessons and creativity – which is why I think this is one of those i-read-it-i-forget-it reads not to make that as an insult though. Its not a reading material for re-reads (solely my opinion) but hey, as I said it’s a novella but the author does write effectively. I would definitely consider to read her future works.


“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.

  1. Great review. =) I read Witch Weigh as well, and I thought the weight angle was both very funny and refreshing. I’d never seen this done before, so I enjoyed that part of the book very much! I do wish the relationship between the two main characters was a bit more developed as well, but I have that problem with most novellas. 🙂

    • Hey Majanka! I totally agree. I believe that’s the most voiced issues with novellas, character development but asides that issue I did enjoy Witch Weigh. Catchy title too! 🙂
