They always say to never judge a book by the cover… and, well, I’ll admit, I tend to ALWAYS check the cover first thing. So when I saw the cover of this books I though “Oh My Gosh! Ain’t that a cutie or what? Ain’t it make you want to poke at her cheeks ^^. So when I got a chance to get my hands on it, I said Bring it on! Expecting a cute bubbly fluffy, pink story…. I’m not gonna say “how wrong I was” ‘cause, yeah, it does have its bubbly but, Oh Boy I would have NEVER though that a Book with such cover could go as deep as it actually went. But I’m skipping ahead.
From the moment I started the first chapter I was hooked. You get thrown into Lily’s head; I immediately felt a connection with her and could relate to her in a million ways. I think she’s the kind of character that owns a Strong voice. And I mean this seriously; it reminded me of being inside my own head, natural. The way her mind works combined with her sarcastic sense of humor just made it an extra delight to accompany her through the book. And I could tell all this just form the first chapter…
Also, from chapter One, you get Ryder, one of the boys who’s determined to fight for Lily’s heart. He was sexy-cocky and just pure charm…. But like any well written and deep character, there’s always more than meets the eye, isn’t it? Dark, mysterious and more tortured that you can imagine, are part of the descriptions that can also fit Ryder. I’m usually not a big fan of way to tortured characters but Ryder was just…. God! How can I describe? There were times where all I wanted to do was rip his shirt off, to others where all I wanted to do was held him in my arms and comfort him… Finally found the words: Pure celestial Delight.
And I haven’t introduced our piece of heaven… Lucian, also in the run for Lily’s love… And I think I’ll stop here…. I mean, I don’t want to give it all away in just one review, now do I?... ok, maybe just a little
Lily’s and Ryder’s relationship advances quickly, you may think that its total unrealistic but you can immediately tell theres more to it. Also, somewhere in between the story all I was doing was gripping my head and saying No No NO!!! HE CAN’T BE!... Zomygod. He is. And in a desperate need to figure out what was going on, I would go back to past pages in search of clues, bits and pieces I could’ve missed, to a point where I told my brother it was driving me mad to not know! And he gave the most incredible suggestion ever “Why don’t you like, CONTINUE READING THE BOOK!!!” Such wise words coming out of my brothers lips…. I’m still shocked.
From unexpected twists and turns, breathtaking romance, full of passion, mysteries and magic, comments so hilarious I was crying!, and an adorable little black cat, Hex, A Witch And Angel Tale is the perfect fit for A Great Novel. With and ending, and ACTUAL ENDING!! One of those cliché ones that say:
I can’t remember the last YA novel of this genre that had this words actually pressed in the end – or maybe there are but, like, in the 9th book of the series – It was sad to see Lily’s story come to an end but, I ended with such a good taste in my mouth, that I’m just plain happy for Lily. I’m still smiling at just remembering everything.
Thank You so much to Ramona Wray for giving me the opportunity to review her novel, I have now become and unconditional fan and look forward to more of her work. Hex, A With And Angel Tale is the kind of book that takes a hold of you from the first line, holds on tight, and refuses to let go until you’ve ripped through the last page, and once those six letters close the book, it lingers inside your head for A long time. Highly Recommended. Highly Addicting. Highly Seductive… Pure Celestial Delight… :)
"He lowered his mouth to mine anyway, close enough that our lips almost brushed for a millisecond before his glided across my cheek, his breath layin a fiery trail from the corner of my mouth to my ear.
"I'm not going to kiss you, Lily" he whispered. "I'm patient. I'll wait until you want it bad enough."
"You'll be asking for it soon," he added. "No hesitation."
"I love how you look at me."
"And how's that?" I asked, blushing on cue.
His lower lip curled in that mischievous way it did.
"Like your having a hard time deciding between my lips and this blueberry pie. And I know nothing comes between you and this pie."
I giggled. "Very observant. Wonder which one will win?"
