Over Hexed (Hex #1)
Banished. Until their unconventional techniques land them in hot water, Dorcas and Ambrose are the matchmaking sex therapists for lovelorn witches and wizards. The Grand High Wizard has exiled them to the very conventional and unmagical town of Big Knob, Indiana. Population: 947. But that doesn't mean they've given up matchmaking....

What can I say? While I’m a sucker for a happy ending, this one had me laughing in places as well.
Sean Madigan, the handsome, sexy stud muffin of Big Knob (okay, the synopsis had me laughing - who would give any town that for a name!), was just about every available women’s ‘go-to-guy’ for great sex. And Sean, being a guy, wouldn’t say no. But it got to the point where sex wasn’t enough anymore and stopped - for nearly a year, even avoiding the women as much as possible. ...more
There are no "nasty" characters -- people have their flaws, but all of them feel real, and sincerely nice people. It came to a place where I knew that the "dark moment" was close to happening, but I was almost screaming "NooooO! Just end now! Let them have their happy ever after!".
The book ...more
“Sean thought about the women that mobbed him at every turn, his lack of freedom to move around town without being pinched or whistled at, his complete disinterest in sex. He lifted his glass and candlelight bounced off the cut crystal. Th...more
The story is about Sean Madigan, a small-town hottie who's sick of the attention. He can't go out in public without being groped and propositioned. He enjoyed the attention when he was young, but now he just wants to go about his days without worrying about who he'll bump into.
Then into his ...more
I love the idea that a man would be so good-looking and sexy that he would wish he wasn't like that anymore. I also love that as soon as he gets that wish he wants it back to get what he wants from someone else.
Sean is the town hottie, and women all over town just want to find their way into his bed. Sean, after living with this all his life, is ready to get away from that and just wants to be lef ...more
I only meant to sample this book, but I got sucked in and stayed up all night to finish it. I normally don’t like books that have so much sex (because I feel it takes away from the story line). Vicki Lewis Thompson is the exception. Even though the characters have a lot of sex, it is always a necessary component of the story. I think she’s clever to make the plot hinge on the sex.
In Over Hexed, Ambrose and Dorcas are ‘exiled’ to Big Knob to get the irresponsibl ...more
Dorcas (F) and Ambrose (M), 50-something married witch and wizard matmakers screwed up a spell and are sent to babysit an inept dragon in Big Knob, Indiana as their punishment. This small town sports a very phalic looking rock formation, hence the name.
Sean Madigan has suffered from extreme attractiveness since he hit puberty. Women are constantly throwing themselves at him, and ...more
I fell in love with the small town of Big Knob and it's corky towns folk. Thompson has once again written a quick wit funny romantic novel reminding me why she is one of my favorite authors.
Among some of my favorites. Outstanding literary work. The characters are well developed, interesting. The liked characters are likable and the hated are unlikable. The writing is captivating enough to keep you interested until the end and leave you wanting more. It has a fairly original or uniquely ...more
The plot was cute, a super hot guy with lots of magnetism asks Dorcas and Ambrosia to make him "unhot".
The trendy and very sexually active couple grant his wish. Unfortunately, just as he is getting is reprieve and career oriented female shows up to steal him family home. He needs his looks and spark.
Sean manages to gain back his sex appeal and he learns what love is and what is important in life.
There were some ...more
Yes, Big Knob and all those sly analogies and metaphors are explored in (ahem) depth.
A fun, romantic story with a good message - love is not selfish, not to be used to manipulate someone into doing something YOU want. This book also has a range of sexy s ...more
This was cute, and a total bubblegum read and w ...more
This book had a really great premise and it started off strong. Then all of a sudden it became "all sex and no story". I read a lot of romances and I like mine with a good storyline. The author definitely let the storyline lag and focused more on lots and lots of sex scenes. If you are looking for a book with lots of steamy sex, then this book might be good for you. However, if you want solid story (with sex on the side), you might want to pass this one up. It was just OK for me.
Not the worst read but not the best either. Not certain if I will read the next book in the Hex series.
I didn't love it, but I did like it enough that I'll probably check out another book in this series.
