About this deal

Like the time she tried to summon some flour to bake with, she inadvertently summoned a demon to make a bargain.

And of course these two add another layer by announcing they're dating when confronted with a surprise appearance by Mariel's truly horrendous mom. This is our first foray into the "witchy romcom" genre, and we think we made a very good choice with our intro, because this was hilarious, funny, and sexy. First I should admit I have a huge soft spot for fake dating romances so seeing that A Witch’s Guide to Fake Dating a Demon by Sarah Hawley had that trope mixed with a little fantasy I was intrigued. She co-hosted the Wicked Wallflowers Club podcast about romance fiction, which was featured on Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List” as “a compelling reminder of why the oft-dismissed genre is a real force in cultural conversations about consent and desire.

I must admit, Mariel is so much stronger than I am because this book was way more slow burn than I would’ve been able to manage. Some of the best scenes of the book are them opening up to each other, learning to care for the other, and sometimes surprising each other. Ozroth's only job is to make bargains with witches so that he can use their souls to power the demon plane. I don't want this to come off as prudish and I don't want to spoil anything, but there were elements of this book that made it seem like self-insert fan fiction, or maybe a Wattpad serial. But Ozroth has a limited amount of time to strike the deal, and if Mariel gives up her soul, she'll lose all her emotions—including love—which will only spell disaster for them both.The story in A Witch’s Guide to Fake Dating a Demon is a standalone novel that is told by changing the point of view between the main characters. Because of the way she treated him, I just could not see why Oz would want to spend decades with her and leave his life and duties and everything he's ever known. Honestly the illustration style makes them look more like children than anything because there are definite YA vibes to me. Here’s the quick recap of plot: before Mariel Spark’s birth, the wind, the earth and the stars had all signified that she was going to be the strongest witch in the generations of the famed magic family.
