My Rating

If you are looking for a witchy romcom, with the perfect amount of witty banter and romance, this is a great read for you. This is a companion novel to ‘The Ex Hex’ (also by Erin Sterling) – but this time around, we’re following Gwyn and Wells, instead of Vivi and Rhys.

Gwyn is Vivi’s cousin, and she is a strong, willed, and opinionated witch. Wells is a serious, non-nonsense-type warlock. He is also the brother of Rhys. Rhys, you may remember, was Vivi’s ex-boyfriend from the previous book.

The cute part is how well the pairing works. Gwyn brought out a more laid back side of Wells. I loved how she always teased him. He was able to keep up with her sarcasm, which was awesome. Thus, there was a ton of witty banter throughout the story.

“The best magic is always a little risky, right?”

The book contains some spicy scenes that I loved. There wasn’t a ton of smut, and most of the romance scenes are the ‘fade to black’ type, but the chemistry between the characters made the scenes even better. This is definitely a ‘he falls first’ type of romance.

In addition to the romance, the plot was amazing. I loved the storyline and all the fun magical moments. It gave me the cozy fall vibes that I look for in a witchy romcom. The pacing of the story was good, and I liked how everything was wrapped up.

Overall, this was a ten out of ten read. It is a great frenemies to lovers magical romance. The story is something I think many people will enjoy. I mean it is a witchy story with my favorite trope; no wonder I liked it.
