Review of The Last Challenge by Sharon Karaa

Check out the Last Challenge and you'll snort with laughter!

About the book
 Lauren Rutherford knows she is many things; a virgin (at twenty five she still wasn't sure how that had happened), a failed baker, an orphan and a computer programmer. She also suspects she is ever so slightly nuts given that she often has conversations with her multiple personalities and Bad Luck is a man who seems to enjoy tormenting her at every opportunity.
What Lauren doesn't know is that she is also a witch.

She needs to learn, and fast, because the only thing between her and certain death is Agnes, her long-dead ancestor who has a foul mouth and a passion for G-strings, and Daniel, a sexy as hell male witch who drives her to distraction.

As the last descendant of a long line of witches, Lauren is the victim of a four hundred year old curse. She must survive a challenge set down by three damned souls that will take her to hell and back. Literally! And Satan doesn't do tea and scones!

My Review
I like a book that will make me laugh out loud. When the author contacted me and asked if her book sounded like something I would like to read, I jumped at her offer. What’s better than a book with a snarky/funny main character, sexy witch and a familiar that is 6 inches tall and cusses like a sailor?? Not much! This book will have you laughing out loud. I think at one part I even snorted/choked. But let me start at the beginning.
Lauren was just a normal woman with a normal job, a great best friend and she liked it that way. Imagine her surprise when a 400 year old ghost pops in to tell her she’s the last in a long line of cursed witches and she must learn the craft or die. Doesn’t sound so funny, but the hijinks that ensue are most definitely worth of a snort or two. But she must start a coven and her best friend Selina joins and they call their familiars. As if that wasn't enough she starts falling for the gorgeous witch who has become her protector. Her situation really is serious though and the ghosts that cursed her family line are trying to kill her at almost every turn.
I enjoyed this story. Lauren and Celina are great characters. Agnes, the ghost and reason for the family curse, is too funny and Daniel Hunter is like the sexy icing on the cake. Throw in a cat that isn’t, some exciting adventures in magic training and a trip to hell - literally, and this is one great story! I highly recommend it to anyone that likes paranormal, sexy male witches and a good laugh! Paranormal Tendencies gives The Last Challenge 5 stars! I can’t wait to dive into the next book in this series. 

About the Author

Sharon Karaa is a mass of contradictions but two facets of her character have always battled for supremacy; her logical self (let's call him Frank) and her artistic side (lets her call Misty).
Until recently, Frank won every battle, forcing Sharon into a life based on most probable outcome and, to give him his credit, it has led to a fairly comfortable if rather boring life so far.
Then Misty took up kick boxing and gave Frank a good kick in the goodies.
Sharon lives with her husband in a little village north of Newcastle upon Tyne, England. She doesn't have a cat.
