The Ex Hex | By Erin Sterling






Book Review | Contemporary Romance



Synopsis :


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.






My thoughts







Narrative and Plot








When you hear about a much-hyped book, you always start with a little apprehension in the beginning. That’s how I got into The Ex Hex, since I have come across a lot of good reviews for the book. A few pages in, and I knew I was in for a treat.

The plot is witchy and romantic with two adorable main characters Rhys and Vivi. Vivian puts a curse on the boy who broke her heart. Nine years later, he is back in town and all hell breaks loose. The plot is as simple as that. But the narration makes it a joyride.






Characters and Conflicts






Viv and Rhys are the main characters in this romantic comedy with amazing chemistry. There is more to them than just being adorable second-chance lovers. They have their insecurities and fears which make them feel like real people.

The conflict is pretty straightforward. But the whole atmospheric setting and cosy small-town set-up make it a fun ride. The ensemble cast definitely adds the required spice to the story.














Overall, The Ex Hex is definitely the kind of book that you can pick up every October. It is centred around Halloween. It is all ghosty and witchy, along with sizzling chemistry and steamy romance.
