The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling

Q: Do you stay up late or read first thing in the morning?
The Ex Hex
Erin Sterling
Pub Date- 9/28/21
A witchy romance set in Georgia with long established witch lines living amongst humans. There is even a small college in the town.
Vivienne Jones and Rhys Penhallow met 9 years earlier and had immediate chemistry. They were both almost if not all of the way in love when Rhys casually says he has to go back to Wales to talk to his Dad about his betrothal. Uh bye boy. Que girl time, vodka, candles and hexing the ex, though they didn’t think they actually did anything, she was just broken hearted.

Back to now, the ley lines need to be charged prior to All Hallows Eve and only a Penhallow can do it. Rhys is sent back to Graves Glen and let the fun start. He hasn’t seen Vivienne since he left, bad luck starts happening to him once he enters the town limit and his magic is all wonky. Turns out there is a hex on him, oops!

This book was so much fun and full of so many laughs and steamy-ness. There are so many fun witchy things happening in this book I want to read it again!  If BOTM does have it as a selection I probably will pick it!

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 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.
