RJ Blaine’s skill for writing sassy, funny, and sexy Urban Fantasy hits all the right spots in Whatever for Hire, the fourth book of Blaine’s Magical Romantic Comedies. Blaine keeps readers on their toes as the plot evolves with every seemingly random twist and turn advancing the story in unexpected ways. Some of these points come across as being a little contrived, but my main complaint is that at least one concept is introduced that’s never followed up on. There’s a huge focus on physical attractiveness that’s accompanied by mutual sexual objectification between Kanika and Malcolm rather than the mushier brand of romance. It would be excessive if not for a vague satiric undertone. I loved Kanika’s uneasy acquaintance with Satan and the hilarity that usually accompanies their conversations. Although it runs a little long, Whatever for Hire entertains from page one to its fascinating conclusion.
