Which is more unlikely?

Meeting a single, straight, reasonably attractive, willing-to-commit man?

Or discovering a secret cache of magic books?

For good girl Jane Madison, neither has a shot in hell of coming true--until the day she finds a hidden room....

Now she's done a bit of experimenting and found a spell that makes her irresistible to men--even those who have previously ignored her. And another that turns a cat into her witch's familiar (a snarky, critical, self-absorbed man--pretty much a typical male). Though her impulsive acts of magic have brought a warder (sexy, grouchy, elusive and determined to stop her from using magic) down on her, Jane's not willing to let go of this fantastic new life.

Though she wonders about having things that aren't "real," she's having too much fun to stop. After all, no one ever said being a witch was easy....

this review contains spoilers, if any book this bad can be spoiled by me given away the ending.

Girl's Guide To Witchcraft (Red Dress Ink Novels) by Mindy Klasky

Woman (who acts more like a teenager) discovers she can do magical spells and accidentally sets off a love spell. Does she work hard to undo the spell? No. In fact, she takes advantage of it. Does she work hard to explore her new-found powers? Anything about the new culture she's now a part of? Nope, instead, she has her familiar (a gay cat/person) help her with make-up and looking attractive.

In the end we (and she) learns that the love spell only worked on one guy - everyone else fell for her better haircut and "Pick-Me-Up Pink lipstick." She's good with that - the only thing important to her is a Boyfriend (the capitalization is from the book).
