*REVIEW & GUEST POST* Royally BeSwitch by Molly Snow

Hexed from a small suburb in the U.S. back to 1700's France, a magical black cat, Surla, and her human crush, Jax Morreau, have no idea what troubles await.

When Jax’s distant relatives, a lowly maidservant and a prince, miss their chance at love, evil gains a stronghold in the Morreau Kingdom. It’s up to the duo from the future to reset the course of love before it’s too late. Surla, the cat, will do anything, including switch bodies with the maidservant, to clean up the royal mess.


  I can honestly tell you guys that every BeSwitched novel that Molly Snow writes is better than the last one!!  The books are fun and written in such a way that you really feel like you know the characters.  They progress at an easy and practical pace, that kind of makes your attachment to them grow.

  Jax and Surla are kind of thrown back in time.  Very back in time being the 1700's.  Being unaware of the time and where they are well things happen.  You know that ripple effect, change one thing in the past and you change many things in the future.  Well they have done that and are doing all that they can to fix it.  The BeSwitching this time is by choice and kind of amusing in its own way.  Surla actually seems to be taking the switches much easier now but it's the switching back that seems harder to do.  However this one doesn't seem to work as well as the others and I have a couple theory's as to why but to avoid spoilers will keep it to myself for now.  

  The relationship between Surla and Jax in this book is running a little thin.   Not that they don't like each other but knowing that Surla is a cat kind of raises some problems.  That doesn't stop either one of them from having the feeling though.  It is so clear to me between the thoughts you get to hear and the way they are around each other that they want to find a way to be together but as Jax puts it "he's not that freaky" and it makes you feel for them.  

  The last few chapters are really intense.  I mean super intense.  They are packed with this, that and everything in between.  Things that you seen coming happen and things that you never imagined possible happen as well.  The best part (meaning my favorite) is that you get to find out where Surla came from.  i mean you know that Idis got her when she was 13 but where did she come from before that?  Well you find out and let me tell you the way you get there will have you holding your breath and maybe holding back some tears.  When it happens though it is truly golden and I almost had some tears of happiness going on!

  Forget the witches and look to the black cat.  Molly Snow has turned regular witchy fun into something new and exciting.  I have enjoyed every book in this series so far and as I said before they get better and better.  This one had a bit of a leap for me at the end but I still loved it.  Can't wait to see what happens to everyone next!  Once you read this book I am sure that you will also be wanting to know what happens next! 


Now I am SUPER lucky and have an awesome guest post from the awesome Molly snow!!
First a little info on the Author herself!
Molly Snow, Founder of, wrote BeSwitched when she was just sixteen. As a bestselling author’s personal assistant at age twenty, she decided to do what her boss did and self publish. At age twenty-three, BeSwitched made its debut. Snow is married to her high school crush, has a set of silly twin boys and a bob-tailed cat named Meow-Meow.

Now to the awesome post on Jax!

All about Jax Morreau (Teen Heart-Throb of BeSwitched Witch and Royally BeSwitched):

  • His black hair isn’t too long and isn’t too short and he looks perfect rubbing his hands through it.
  • He’s a bit goth. Just enough to look hot, not creepy.
  • He is strong but doesn’t flaunt it.
  • He was skilled in swordfighting ever before going back to the 1700s.
  • When he wears tight pants, he can actually pull off the look. So can his handsome predecessor, Prince Nicolas.
  • (Spoiler Alert) Shape-shifting into a raven is one of his gifts.
  • He has other special secrets as well ;)
  • Sassy black cat Surla knows how to get his attention any time she switches with a girl.
  • Integrity is pretty important to him.

Who do I as the author imagine him to look like?
Maybe a cross between a teenage Johnny Depp and the guy who starred as the bad boy in the Disney Movie, Prom.*Sigh* The picture of Raum on the sidebar of your blog, Tiffany, also remind me of him.


  I have to say if Jax looked anything like Raum Molly I would be fighting Surla for him :)  Thank you all for stopping by my blog tour stop and THANK YOU Molly for letting me be a part of this!!
