Review: Make You Blush by Macy Beckett

On the surface, Joy McMasterson has everything—a steady career, a trendy French Quarter townhouse, and high-society parents who fill her schedule with a rotation of trust fund hotties. But despite her good fortune, Joy is suffocating beneath the pressure of her father’s political campaign. Every detail of her life is scripted, from her sensible Tiffany hoops to the men she’s permitted to date. To assert control over her love life, Joy visits The Sweet Spot bakery—home to Allie Mauvais, third-generation voodoo priestess and renowned matchmaker. Armed with love potion and a newly-found nerve, Joy walks out of the bakery and into Ryan Gibson’s tattoo shop. One look at the gorgeous owner and she knows two things: they have enough chemistry to steam the ink off his skin, and he’s not the kind of guy she can take home to her parents. But if Joy wants to escape her father’s shadow, maybe Ryan is exactly who she needs…

Make You Blush by Macy Beckett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In this prequel to a new series based in Louisiana love is helped along by a little bit of voodoo matchmaking.

This was a short and sexy read about Joy Masterson who has always had to present herself as a straight laced upstanding citizen for her father’s upcoming campaign. She doesn’t feel like she fits in with his political crowd and hates the “dates” her mother sets her up on with men who could further her father’s campaign. One day her friend tells her to go to The Sweet Spot and have the owner who is a voodoo priestess give her a love charm so she can find someone special. The owner Allie tells her for it to work she has to be true to herself, no more being what everyone else wants her to be. This leads Joy to head to a tattoo shop where she finds the man of her dreams.

This was a sweet love story with a little angst until Joy stood up to her family. There is a sneak peak of the first book in the series at the back with is Allie’s story and it certainly looks like its going to have plenty of humor and a great romance along with the myth of a curse put upon the men of the heroes family.
