The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling


Vivienne Jones handled the biggest break-up of her life the way that any witch would: vodka, bubble baths, and a curse on her ex.

That was nine years ago. Now Rhys Penhallow, descendant of the town's founders, breaker of hearts and still irritatingly gorgeous, is back. Rhys has returned to the quaint town of Graves Glen to recharge the ley lines and make an appearance at the annual fall festival. But when his every move results in calamity, Vivi realises that hexing her ex might not have been so harmless after all . . .

As the curse starts to affect the magic of the town, resulting in murderous wind-up toys, an outraged ghost, and a surprisingly talkative cat, Vivi and Rhys must put their personal feelings aside and work together to break the curse and save not just the town, but also Rhys's life.

With the spooky season upon us I thought it was the perfect time for me to read The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling.

When teenage Vivi is left heartbroken by a Rhys Penhallow her and her cousin do what any drunken teenage witches would do … curse him!

Roll forward 9 years when the town is gearing up for Halloween and Rhys is due to return for the first time to charge the Ley Lines but everything feels as if it is going against him and reuniting with Vivi soon reveals the truth as to why the magic is out of hand!

This book is different from my usual reading and yet I thoroughly enjoyed this witchy, magical read with a big dash of romance and sauciness too! It has such a youthful and exciting feel to the storyline that I found really fun and refreshing. This certainly isn’t a book that will scare or spook you in anyway it is purely a romance with a witchy setting which is perfect for this time of year.

Yes ok the romance side of things is predictable but the enjoyment came through the two reuniting and them both on their quest to put right the wrongs that they are responsible for whilst reigniting the flame between them at the same time.

There are some spicy sex scenes which won’t appeal to all readers but you can skim through these parts without missing out on any of the storyline and there was also some witty moments too which helped to make this a light-hearted read.

I look forward to reading the next book in this series now to see what our characters get up to next!
