The Witch is Back by H.P. Mallory

Series: Jolie Wilkins (4)

Paperback, July 31 2012, 368 pages
Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon US

Funny and feisty witch Jolie Wilkins is back—or rather, she’s back to her humble beginnings. Propelled into the past to her old Los Angeles fortune-telling shop, Jolie has no idea she possesses extraordinary powers, and she definitely doesn’t remember becoming Queen of the Underworld. But at least she has two incredibly sexy men vying for her affection: Rand Balfour, who looks very familiar, though Jolie can’t place his gorgeous face, and Sinjin Sinclair, who is tall, dark, and perfect . . . except for the fangs. Yet despite her steamy love life, Jolie can’t shake the sense that something is not quite right—like she’s stuck in a déjà vu gone terribly awry. As both men race against time—and each other—to win Jolie’s heart, the fate of the Underworld hangs in the balance. And Jolie’s decision can either restore order or create an absolute, drop-dead disaster.

Okay the start of this book really intrigued me. I hadn't really read a book before with a time shift kind of theme and while I did enjoy this book I constantly found Jolie to be whingy and intolerable. I just didn't like her at all. She did kind of redeem herself towards the end but she just wasn't the kick-ass witch I'd come to know and love. While I understand that we're meeting her again from two years ago so she wont be the same person, I'm just saying I'm not keen on moany arse Jolie. 
That being said I absolutely loved Sinjin! He's so sneaky & devious its funny. While its obvious to us, Sinjin can't seem to admit he loves Jolie. Which sees her distrusting him, although she does technically have reason to. Although I loved this book I wasn't completely happy with it and upon finishing I didn't feel anymore fulfilled. This book is nice enough, it just feels more like a filler book than a full novel. 
Will definitely be reading the next book though. Can't wait!!
