About the book:

It’s one hex of an attraction in this romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Jessica Clare.

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.

Go Hex Yourself by Jessica Clare is a paranormal romantic comedy novel with an enemies to lovers storyline. The story in Go Hex Yourself is one that is told by alternating the point of view between the two main characters giving both sides of the romance.

Reggie Johnson is in desperate need of a job when she finds an ad for an assistant position working with Spellcraft. Reggie adores the card game Spellcraft and is beyond excited to work for someone in the business so when the interview goes well Reggie can’t believe her luck, so what if her new boss is a little eccentric.

Reggie is just a tad taken aback when she figures out that her new employer doesn’t really work for Spellcraft the game but thinks that she’s a real witch that can cast spells. Reggie knows magic isn’t real and only hopes that the pay is good especially when she meets Ben Magnus, her bosses grouchy nephew who also claims to be a warlock.

Go Hex Yourself by Jessica Clare certainly was a funny one but also one that got rather steamy which I wasn’t totally expecting from the cover. Being an enemies to lovers trope I was thankful that I did end up liking both characters as sometimes that trope isn’t my favorite and I end up not wanting the relationship. I did also really enjoy the sort of bumbling by the lead as she stumbled into the paranormal world around her. The magic in the story was fun to learn about and fit well with the humorous style of the story too so overall this was a fun read.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
