I purchased this book on Amazon, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Jessica Clare is a New York Times bestselling author who writes under three pen names. As Jessica Clare, she writes erotic contemporary romance. As Jessica Sims, she writes fun, sexy shifter paranormals. Finally, as Jill Myles, she writes a little bit of everything, from sexy, comedic urban fantasy to zombie fairy tales.

When Reggie Johnson answers a job ad in the paper, she’s astonished to find that she’s not applying to work at her favorite card game, Spellcraft: The Magicking. Instead, she’s applying to be an actual familiar for an actual witch. As in, real magic.

The new job has a few perks – great room and board, excellent pay, and she’s apprenticing to a powerful witch. Sure, the witch is a bit eccentric. And sure, there was that issue with the black cat Reggie would prefer to forget about. The biggest problem, however, is warlock Ben Magnus, her employer’s nephew and the most arrogant, insufferable, maddening man to ever cast a spell.

Reggie absolutely hates him. He’s handsome, but he’s also bossy and irritating and orders her around. Ben’s butt might look great in a crystal ball vision, but that’s as far as it goes. But when someone with a vendetta targets the household, she finds herself working with Ben to break a deadly curse. Apparently, when they’re not fighting like cats and dogs, things get downright…bewitching.

“I definitely did not see that one coming.”

Reggie is excited about her job interview, and it sounds like the perfect gig. Little does she know, she is about to learn more about her employer than she was prepared for.

This book was fantastic. It was charming, funny, unique, and hard to put down. I found the way the mythology was curated very clever. The basis was unique and fun, and the characters only added to the delight.

I loved Reggie. She is intelligent, charming, loyal, funny, fierce, and imperfect. She was a fun character to get to know, and her journey was the perfect starting place for this series.

I liked Ben a lot, and I liked that he wore his flaws like armor. I also found him sensitive, kind, funny, and protective. His dynamic with Reggie was great. I love how he loved Dru; his care for his aunt was touching.

There were several places within this book where I laughed out loud. The writing is fantastic, and the storyline flows beautifully. I read this book, so I could read my advantaged reviewer’s copy of What the Hex, and I’m glad I did.
