About The Ex Hex

The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling is a sweet, fun paranormal romcom.

Vivi’s nursing a broken heart over the gorgeous Rhys Penhallow, a descendant of the town’s founders. So she does what any young witch would do. She curses him after breaking her aunt’s rule of never mixing witching with vodka.

Nine years later, Vivi’s moved on with her life. Or so she thinks. Until Rhys shows up in town for the annual fall festival and to recharge the town’s leylines. When one mishap follows another, Vivi realizes that maybe her curse worked a little too well. Now Vivi and Rhys have to figure out how to break the curse as it starts to cause mayhem all over town.

My thoughts about The Ex Hex

Such a fun second chance, lovers to enemies to lovers romance! All of the sparkling banter you could want. Quirky secondary characters who I hope will get stories of their own in the future. Awkward family relationships. Bonus talking cat. And some serious steam between the leads!

With The Ex Hex, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins, writing as Erin Sterling has made the perfect romance to read while sipping your PSL. This book has all of the autumn vibes for a warm, sexy, un-put-downable read.

In conclusion

This paranormal romcom is for fans of Bailey Cates mysteries and Ilona Andrews’ urban fantasies.

Thank you NetGalley and Avon for the ARC.

About Erin Sterling

Pen name of Rachel Hawkins.

Rachel Hawkins was born in Virginia and raised in Alabama. This means she uses words like “y’all” and “fixin'” a lot, and considers anything under 60 degrees to be borderline Arctic. Before deciding to write books about kissing and fire (and sometimes kissing while on fire), Rachel taught high school English for 3 years, and is still capable of teaching you The Canterbury Tales if you’re into that kind of thing.

She is married to a geologist, which means that they have incredibly strange dinner conversations (“So today at work, I wrote a chapter where killer fog, like, ATE PEOPLE.” “Huh. Well, I was chased by an angry reindeer while trying to map parts of Norway.” “Um…okay.”)

Rachel also has a little boy whose main hobbies are playing video games, running around in circles, and plotting his Future Intergalactic Take-Over.

When not writing books, Rachel enjoys reading, travelling, and knitting (very terribly.)
