My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Boss Witch is the second book in the Fix-It Witches series by Ann Aguirre. The eBook version is 368 pages. I listened to the audiobook, which clocks in at a little over ten hours and is narrated by Ava Lucas. We follow our two man characters as dual points-of-view.
You can find my full review for the first book in the series, Witch Please, here. This book takes place partially at the same time as the first one, with several scenes that are nearly verbatim. I may have only really noticed this since I read these books right after one another.
In this second installment, we follow Clementine Waterhouse, cousin of Danica (our main character from the first book). Clem is bisexual and co-owns Fix-It Witches, a magical tech repair shop with Danica as they are both technomancers. In this world, various witchy family lines tend to have different gifts. The cousins previously agreed on a pact where they would have fun dating but not actually get too deep into romance so they would never have any man or woman (mundane or otherwise) control their lives.
Clem’s biodad is a witch, but she has him blocked from calling or emailing her because he’s kind of a big jerk. Her grandmother continues to be a twat in this book as well. When a witch hunter comes to town, Clem decides to keep her book club coven safe by distracting him with her feminine wiles.
Gavin Rhys is from a family of witch hunters, but he doesn’t really like that life. He is currently on sabbatical from being a history professor, which is more his actual passion. His grandfather left the order of witch hunters twenty years before, and was labeled as a traitor for falling in love with someone his family deemed unsuitable.
Tropes in this book include: witch heroine, prickly heroine, bisexual heroine, forbidden love, found family
CW: gaslighting, emotional abuse, toxic family situations, child of divorce
