"A spooky romantic comedy treat that had me sighing at one page, laughing out loud at the next. The Ex Hex is the perfect book for fall." -- New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey

"Sterling casts a spell on her readers with this romantic comedy. ... As humorous and fantasy filled as the novel is, it also encourages readers to ponder the idea that the world is a very small place. Sterling puts a wonderful spin on two people who once had each other's backs to two people who need each other to save a city from destruction. A cute and laughable holiday read to get you through the harsh winter weather." -- USA Today

"Filled with delightful witchiness and humor, this playful romantic comedy from Sterling explores second chances and self-discovery. ... Comedic chaos rules the day, with plenty of laughs overlaying just a touch of introspection as the exes realize how much they still mean to each other. The result is a fluffy Halloween treat." -- Publishers Weekly

"Sterling writes a fun, sexy romantic comedy with a compelling plot, fantastic worldbuilding, twists that give the story depth, and engaging primary and secondary characters. The novel wraps up plenty of loose ends, but readers will be eager for sequels." -- Library Journal

"A pitch-perfect paranormal romantic comedy ... The Ex Hex seamlessly blends fantasy and romance, with a strong sense of world-building and magical rules that guide Vivienne and Rhys's attempts to course-correct from the 'accidental' curse, and an equally evident sense of attraction between these two witches. A bit of unexpected magic, a dose of revenge and a sprinkling of steaminess churn together in a humorous and heartfelt paranormal romance, sure to delight fans of Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic--or any contemporary tale of witches run amok." -- Shelf Awareness

"Sterling's novel is ultimately crisp and sweet, like biting into the perfect caramel apple, and makes for an equally delicious autumn treat that will sweep readers up into a world of whimsical magic. A wickedly funny rom-com about the power of second chances, family, and love." -- Kirkus

"A delightful and witty take on witchy mayhem" -- Popsugar

"Diverting, magic-infused romance." -- Booklist

"If you like seasonal fall reads but don't want to jump full into horror, this is the perfect October book for you. ... It promises Hocus Pocus vibes, but with a lot more heat. So curl up with a pumpkin spice latte and The Ex Hex for a perfect autumnal reading experience." -- Bookriot

"Humorous, magical, and sexy." -- Girly Book Club

"This festive rom-com has it all!" -- Woman's World

"The book perfectly hits the same sweet spot as the 1998 cinematic classic Practical Magic, without the dark plot elements about the abusive ex; it's got a hint of Bell, Book and Candle charm without the casual midcentury sexism. It's cozy and cute and Halloween appropriate, and Rhys is extremely attractive. The Ex Hex was, in short, a blast." -- Jezebel
