The last thing he wanted was to fall for a witch...
Veterinarian Kat Ramsey hasn't a clue that she's a witch. Sure, she can read minds, and there's the whole "dimension-hopping" issue that she can't quite control, but Kat is determined to keep things normal. That is, until she accidentally hops into the Otherworld, and runs smack into Matthew Ryan―the seriously hot one-night stand from years ago who shoved her out of his dorm. Naked.
And there's the tiny matter of the curse she gave him.
May you never find satisfaction with another woman. Billionaire and former druid Matthew Ryan hasn't forgotten the curse, or the witch who gave it to him. Kat's unexpected return means the curse will finally be broken. Unfortunately, his libido has other ideas―like how to get her back into his bed one last time. But far more worrying is his suspicion that Kat is the seventh Pleiades witch. Because while he's turned his back on his druidic ways, he's still bound to protect the woman who made his life hell...
Kat and Matt shared a wonderful night together that was ruined when his girlfriend showed up. He told her to leave, she cursed him without knowing she was cursing him and went back to her world to forgot about him and move on with her life, only she didn't forget about him and he hasn't forgotten about her either.
I was a bit confused at the beginning but once I got a feel for what Kat and the world were all about it was a lot easier to understand what was going on. Kat doesn't know why she jumps to another world or how to control it, PROTECTING HIS WITCH let us learn all the answers right along with her which was nice. There is a lot of sexual tension, banter and fighting feelings between Kat and Matt. Kat was really hurt by the aftermath of their encounter and doesn't want to put her heart out there for him to hurt her again, but she can't help but want him at the same time. Matt turned his back on the druid life and being with Kat would drag him right back into it, but protecting Kat and wanting her is dragging him back in anyways. There is a little more behind both their feelings for each other and their wants to not jump into their feelings, but I wouldn't want to spoil anything for you. I will say that these two are meant for each other and it shows when they allow it.
I really enjoyed the secondary characters. We get to know more about a select few than others but they all end up being pretty involved in the overall story. There is still a lot to learn about the world and each characters place in it. PROTECTING HIS WITCH makes me want to see what else Zoe has to offer. I know that when book 2 of the Keeper of the Veil series comes out I'll be reading it.
I gave it 4/5 stars
