The Ex Hex: A Novel | Erin Sterling

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins, writing as Erin Sterling, casts a spell with a spine-tingling romance full of wishes, witches, and hexes gone wrong. Nine years ago, Vivienne Jones nursed her broken heart like any young witch would: vodka, weepy music, bubble bathsand a curse on the horrible boyfriend. Sure, Vivi knows she shouldnt use her magic this way, but with only an orchard hayride scented candle on hand, she isnt worried it will cause him anything more than a bad hair day or two. That is until Rhys Penhallow, descendent of the towns ancestors, breaker of hearts, and annoyingly just as gorgeous as he always was, returns to Graves Glen, Georgia. What should be a quick trip to recharge the towns ley lines and make an appearance at the annual fall festival turns disastrously wrong. With one calamity after another striking Rhys, Vivi realizes her silly little Ex Hex may not have been so harmless after all. Suddenly, Graves Glen is under attack from murderous wind-up toys, a pissed off ghost, and a talking cat with some interesting things to say. Vivi and Rhys have to ignore their off the charts chemistry to work together to save the town and find a way to break the break-up curse before its too late.

Characters were a bit flat, I would have loved them be more fleshed out.

I thought this would be more fun. The beginning was that but the rest of the book not that much. Nevertheless this was light & entertaining.

The plot was a bit mess, there were so many things happening. Romance didn't feel believable or relatable.

First things first. On the cover they‘re flying on a broom. That does not happen in the book at all, so don‘t get your hopes up. 😁

It was okay. A little boring once the couple got together. I did like the talking cat though. Maybe he‘ll get his own book?

This was a cute enough witchy romance, but I found myself annoyed at the main characters, Vivienne and Reese, a lot of the time. I also felt there were far too many gratuitous sex scenes, and I‘m not someone who minds an occasional sex scene.

Looking forward to time off from work to dedicate to books 😝 #bookspin #doublespin #bookspinbingo

I listened to this one on my Libby app for an autumn buddy read. Fun little brain candy book. Great cozy witch story but far more . . . ahem, shall we say ‘shagadelic‘ than the cover art would suggest? Super fun book just beware if graphic sex is problematic for you - may not be suitable for everyone.

Packed with likeable characters, witty one-liners, steam, magic, and a talking cat!

A perfect Halloween read. It's spooky, kooky, and charming. I'm now craving toffee apples.

Wanted something seasonal, but quick and light. This hit the spot.

Apparently, I can enjoy contemporary romance if there‘s a bit of the supernatural/magic involved?

Reeeaaaallly long night with the baby. Treating myself this morning 😌

*Full disclaimer: scoffed this in a few bites, gulped down the too hot tea, read 2 pages, and had to get back to rocking baby 😅

Allylu That looks yummy! 11mo
ImperfectCJ My first is 18 now, and I remember (blurrily) those days and nights when they needed constant comfort. (My second had those nights, too, but my first had way more of them. That first baby was breaking me in.) I'm glad you were able to get yourself a little treat before being called back into action! 11mo
ShyBookOwl @ImperfectCJ Haha thx, treats are so rare these days 😅 I'm always thrilled to hear that the sleepless nights and shower-less days eventually become blurry memories lol All the cute, fun baby stuff stays sharper, I hear 11mo
ImperfectCJ @ShyBookOwl The challenges continue, they just change so you can never become an expert. So it continues to be important to grab your treats where you can get them, even once they're sleeping well and wearing their headphones all the time when they're awake. :-) 11mo

This was a little bit shallow for me. The premise was good, and the dialogue was amusing, but having alluded to events in the past and complex relationships, they were not explored. It seems the only reason Simon shows up is so the protagonist can stand up to him and then he leaves with no more input. No great depth to this one, I won't be trying another by Sterling.

4⭐ Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It had the typical sudden romance that doesn't make complete sense, like so many romances, but the characters were likeable and had great chemistry, and the story itself was quite fun. The magical mishap plotline was an enjoyable deviation from romance novel norms.

I liked it but it didn‘t blow my socks off. Didn‘t live up to the hype.
Booze, magic, & a broken heart don‘t mix when recently dumped Vivian & her cousin decide to cast a spell to give her ex horrible luck. It just wasn‘t supposed to work.
Lucky for Rhys, the hex didn‘t kick in until 7 years later when he comes back to town to fulfill familial obligations. That‘s when all hell breaks loose & they have to work together to fix it.
Finished 9/18/2022

Vivienne put a curse on her ex-boyfriend and he returns to town to recharge the magical lay lines. Because of her curse, everything goes haywire in town. That means they have to work together and ignore their chemistry. Can they do both?

This book was cute and had good humor. I didn‘t really like Vivienne as a character b/c she wasn‘t so smart; it got annoying. She didn‘t really get a character arc. However, I did like her with Rhys.

Finished last night and I really enjoyed this magic-filled, dreamy, #witchy romance! Like the Halloween version of The Holiday Swap, but with spice. Nice unconventional small town location in the mountains of northern Georgia instead of the usual New England. Great atmosphere, Rhys was crush-worthy, and I loved Sir Purrcival, the black cat!🐈‍⬛ #ScarathlonDailyPrompts Day 26: #BlackCat #PhotoChallenge #TeamSlaughter #Scarathlon2022 #BOTM #Pop22
