My Cover Blurb: "How Bout 'Boring Circle'"

Persephone Alcmedi has been persuaded to compete for the position of High Priestess of the Cleveland, Ohio, coven -- now that the former priestess, Vivian Diamond, has strangely gone missing. Unfortunately, there are a few small problems with the idea. Not only does Seph know rather more about Vivian's disappearance than the other witches realize, but the epic struggle she's just survived has left her with some highly unusual powers -- ones that could be dangerous to reveal. Despite her reluctance, she agrees to participate, if only to prevent snooty Hunter Hopewell, an obnoxious but talented witch, from ending up in the winner's circle. Can Seph hide her secrets -- including her connection to the master vampire-wizard Menessos -- from the terrifyingly wise judges? Plus, there's her rock 'n' roll werewolf boyfriend, Johnny, and some angry fairies to deal with....

Once the competition begins, a finalist turns up dead. It looks as if one of the contestants is willing to do anything -- including murder -- to win. Suddenly Seph has even more on her plate than she thought: from solving a murder to working out what her new powers really are...and exactly why they're creating so much havoc in her love life.

My Thoughts:
I liked the first book in this series well enough, but this one was just utter crap! The writing is fine, but the story line took a serious turn to boring and I had to skim the last half. Also I hated the way Persephone handled Johnny's kiss with another woman, granted I only half read that part but I thought she forgave him rather easily, especially since it sound like Celia was the one getting mad at the woman who kissed Johnny and not Johnny himself. And whoa, if I had to read Persephone complaining about that damn stain again one more time! Seriously how many times does she have to mention it, we get it, you're unsure about the vampire stain, get over it already! I will not be buying anymore in this series!
