Broke, almost homeless, and recently fired. Those are my official reasons for answering a wanted ad for a skeevy-looking bartender gig.
It went downhill the moment they asked me to do a trial shift instead of an interview — to see if I'd mesh with their "special" clientele. I think that part went great. Their customers were complete dickheads, and I was an asshole right back. That's the definition of fitting in, right?
I expected to get thrown out on my ass. Instead, they… offered me the job?
It turns out this place isn't a bar. It's a guild. And the three cocky guys I drenched with a margarita during my trial? Yeah, they were mages. Either I'm exactly the kind of takes-no-shit bartender this guild needs, or there's a good reason no one else wants to work here.
So what's a broke girl to do? Take the job, of course — with a pay raise.

A short review to update challenges
I read a review of Three Mages and a Margarita and decided I needed to read it. It is the first in the Guild Codex Spellbound series. Urban Fantasy is the best sometimes.
I loved the world-building and the characters. Tori is wonderful and she doesn’t have an easy situation. I enjoy her efforts to meet her goals and commiserate with her frustration with people. There was so much fun, some action and a few things to discover. I can’t wait to go on with the series.
Cris Dukehart is a narrator I already know and enjoy. She did so well with all the characters and their feelings. I was able to listen at my usual 1.5x speed.
