Playing the Witch's Game by Zoe Forward
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
While I missed the book in between, I've had experience in this world before reading this one. I think this can be read as a standalone if it needs to be, because it is mostly the story of Nikolai (aka Nick) and Jen.
Jen has cast a spell to draw her soulmate to her. At the same time, the host of a reality survival show has run into her more times than is natural. Putting two and two together, she assumes that this is it. The only catch is that Owen (the host) says that in order for them to date, she has to go on his show, which also happens to be a special couples version. After striking out with random guys, Nikolai proves to be a worthy candidate to help her out. Oh, and he's not above making her promise to spend the night with him when all this is over.
Nikolai knows that they are fated, but is a little stumped about why she is so insistent that she prove herself to Owen. She surely won't survive this show with anyone else, so he's willing to put himself in this position knowing that he will never be good enough to actually be the man for her. They both realize rather quickly that the show has it out for them (and involves bonus characters from Nikolai's past). Throw in some hexes, hot soulmate action, and a few surprises along the way and you've got a solidly entertaining read.
