Romcom, Romance, Halloween, Witches, Curses
The Ex Hex is about a college student who places a hex on her affluent ex-lover and then discovers the hex has corrupted the entire town.
Vivi is a young girl in love. When the college’s namesake, Rhys, shows interest in her, she’s in love by the end of the summer. Unfortunately, this affluent young man is betrothed to another. Upon discovering this, Vivi is pissed, and rightfully so. Vivi and her cousin Gwyn play around and put a hex on Vivi’s jilted lover. However, there’s one caveat I failed to mention, Vivi, Gwyn, and Rhys are all witches.
Fast forward nine years, Vivi and Rhys have thought about each other but haven’t been in contact. Rhys never got married. When he returns to recharge magic in the college town, the hex kicks in, and everything goes haywire.
Now it’s up to Vivi and Rhys to fix the screwup before innocent people get hurt. Will they be able to work together? Will they fall in love? Will they save the town? With so many questions, this book is an exciting read.
If you’re a fan of Hocus Pocus or romantic comedies in general, you’ll love this book. It’s a quick and easy read. Nothing too serious. Not a lot of spice, if you’re shy. You’ll love this book and smile the whole time.
I awarded The Ex Hex three stars, as I wasn’t all that impressed. I’m not the biggest romantic comedy fan. The Ex Hex was a light read, and I got through the book. I smiled a little but never really had a big laugh. The antics were childish at best. The romance was so-so. Nothing to get me hot and bothered. Nothing to get me all that interested. Altogether the whole thing was pretty cheesy. The magic was corny, and the love story just wasn’t written well. My attention kept falling in and out. I didn’t hate it, but I’d never pick it up and reread it.
