Reviewing The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling
What happens when a young witch curses the young man who left her with a broken heart only to find him back in town a decade later? You get a whole lot of mishaps, a release of a ghost ready to wreak havoc on the town and a whole lot of steam between the scorned ex couple.
The Ex Hex was a cute story with a paranormal aspect that I was comfortable with since it was written in a lighthearted and fun tone. The tone really made this story enjoyable for me as I was hoping for something easy and breezy. And this book was exactly that.
I was able to blaze through the audiobook in two days as it kept me company through a ton of housework and bookstagram photo taking. The narration was done well and there were some really steamy moments in the book that brought a blush to my cheeks and a little hot under the collar.
Overall, if you’re looking for a quick book, enjoy a paranormal theme to the story and one that has some open door steam in it, this is what you’re definitely looking for.
The Ex Hex releases on September 28th!
Thank you Harper Audio and Libro.fm for the advanced listening copy. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
Nine years ago, Vivienne Jones nursed her broken heart like any young witch would: vodka, weepy music, bubble baths…and a curse on the horrible boyfriend. Sure, Vivi knows she shouldn’t use her magic this way, but with only an “orchard hayride” scented candle on hand, she isn’t worried it will cause him anything more than a bad hair day or two.
That is until Rhys Penhallow, descendent of the town’s 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 town’s 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 it’s too late.
