  • Thank you Netgalley and Avon/Harper Voyager!

    Thank you Netgalley and Avon/Harper Voyager for allowing me to read and review this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I adore The Ex Hex and thought it was super adorable, sexy, and had the right amount of banter between Rhys and Vivi. I was excited to see the approval come in for The Kiss Curse and started on it right away. I'm disappointed. After reading The Ex Hex, I was ready to dive into Gwyn's story and meet Wells Penhollow, Rhys's oldest brother. I jumped off the diving board and didn't hit very much water. Gwyn runs the witchy shop Something Wicked and it's a very popular tourist trap. Gwyn is feeling a little left out in the love department as she watches Vivi and Rhys together. To keep herself busy, Gwyn begins to train a group of young witches from the college. Wells Penhollow leaves his father's legacy pub behind for Graves Glen and rents a building across the street from Something Wicked, selling the same witchy items but with a different atmosphere. A shop-competition starts between Gwyn and Wells as they try to one up the other during tourist season while also trying to not fall for the other.. An old friend from Gwyn's college days comes back into town and something witchy and dangerous follows. Nothing really happens in this book. The shop-war between Gwyn and Wells was cute but ends quickly. The romance is adorable but nothing special. The Grumpy/Sunshine and Enemies-to-Lovers tropes are used but falls slightly flat. Gwyn's humor from the first book was good and I loved her in the first book, which of course made me excited for the sequel but in The Kiss Curse, her personality grated on my nerves a bit. I felt like the humor and banter was forced at times and didn't flow as well as The Ex Hex. I liked Wells and his grumpy personality but I can see why some readers were expecting a different love interest. Gwyn was with Jane, the mayor of the town, but they broke up in between the first and second book and Gwyn still felt awkward about each interaction with Jane. Wells is not a bad love interest but it didn't make sense at the same time. Gwyn interacts with Wells only once during a college class that went a little wrong and then nothing until they are in their thirties. The interaction was not enough to convince me that they needed to be "enemies" and Wells does miss Rhys's wedding with Vivi but Gwyn is the only one truly bent out of shape about it and that still didn't convince me. Everything just falls flat. Sir Purrcival, the black talking cat, is what saved some of the humorous moments. I didn't care at all for any of the "Baby Witches", that's what Gwyn calls the three witches she is training, they came across as 12 year olds but they are all, I think, nineteen. I did like that Erin Sterling added LGBTQ rep. Gwyn is bisexual and Parker is non-binary and goes by "they/them" pronouns. At the 80% mark is when things kind of pick up and a sort-of villain appears. But even that falls flat and ends quickly. I really, really wanted to like this book. I did like the steamy moments between Wells and Gwyn and of course the cat but it was not enough for me to love. I am super curious as to who the next main characters will be. I'm thinking it might be the third brother but there is no clear other interest. 3 stars

    Thanks for your feedback!
