Summary taken from Goodreads:

Funny and feisty witch Jolie Wilkins is back—or rather, she’s back to her humble beginnings. Propelled into the past to her old Los Angeles fortune-telling shop, Jolie has no idea she possesses extraordinary powers, and she definitely doesn’t remember becoming Queen of the Underworld. But at least she has two incredibly sexy men vying for her affection: Rand Balfour, who looks very familiar, though Jolie can’t place his gorgeous face, and Sinjin Sinclair, who is tall, dark, and perfect . . . except for the fangs.

Yet despite her steamy love life, Jolie can’t shake the sense that something is not quite right—like she’s stuck in a déjà vu gone terribly awry. As both men race against time—and each other—to win Jolie’s heart, the fate of the Underworld hangs in the balance. And Jolie’s decision can either restore order or create an absolute, drop-dead disaster.


Hmm...this book is hard to judge. I’m not sure exactly how I feel about it. Well I guess I kind of do. This book was basically to make a certain group of people happy, in my opinion. It was a book that had to happen to lay something in Jolie’s life to rest. I can’t say that there were moments that I didn’t enjoy because there was. Jolie has been put back in the past (again), but she doesn’t know it, and things have changed. She meets Sinjin first and it changes a lot in her life. There are things that Sinjin can teach her that Rand really cant and she learns these things in this novel. But, the whole time I’m rooting for Rand. For rand to save her.  To come find her because I know that it just isn’t right. The book doesn’t really reflect any of the previous story line...well, not the part about the war and uniting the underworld. This novel really just focuses on Jolie and her resolving some issues in her life. It was good, but I feel a little betrayed. 


Rand-- I love Rand!


Jolie--This is a different Jolie and I’m not sure if I like her the same way I like the “present” Jolie

Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):’

Overall I understand how the book was needed. Her torn feelings for Sinjin and Rand looked like they were going unresolved and they needed to be addressed. I will admit that I liked some of the stuff that was learnt in this novel and the way that Jolie changed in the end. It was an emotional roller-coaster that even had me confused sometimes, but all-in-all it was still a good read.
