Review: Hexed by Michelle Krys

Hexed
Hexed #1
Michelle Krys
If high school is all about social status, Indigo Blackwood has it made. Sure, her quirky mom owns an occult shop, and a nerd just won’t stop trying to be her friend, but Indie is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend and a social circle powerful enough to ruin everyone at school. Who wouldn’t want to be her?

Then a guy dies right before her eyes. And the dusty old family Bible her mom is freakishly possessive of is stolen. But it’s when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie’s world that she learns her destiny involves a lot more than pom-poms and parties. If she doesn’t get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that’s seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.

Suddenly forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers, Indie’s about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.
Hormones, hormones and more hormones!

Okay, nothing really happened. It didn't happen... between the two leads but it doesn't mean that it didn't happen to others. It was the reason why the main female character broke up with her boyfriend and fell out with her best friend. Of course, if it was me, I would let Aunt Penny's ex-UFC fighter to rough up the ex and stop being frenemies with the ex-best friend and become enemies once and for all. They don't even warrant a blip on the radar. But this is high school with the popular crowd with all the cliches associated with it. *cue rolling of eyes...from me*

This was a WoW book. I had my reservations:
The popular cliche of a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend where they rule the school and typically lord over the student population. They don't give a damn about who's at the bottom of the social ladder. Stereotypes. Poor, little, popular girl who's not who all she is? Enter a stranger - a gorgeous, sexy stranger (*sigh*the BOY again*headdesk*) who will show her things, extraordinary. And she may be a part of it.
But I decided that maybe there was something different about it and I love me some witches and magic.

However, witches and magic were not the center of this book. There were witches and magic but there was so much cliche and stereotypes that the paranormal was just an added bonus.

I tried to like it. I mean, I like the snark and banter and casual flirting of the main characters but that's all there is to like. I thought, when at the time that Indigo's mother was kidnapped and then murdered, Ooooohhh, now we're getting somewhere. Okay, one's mother being murdered is not a good thing but at this plot device is somewhat often used as a shedding of innocence and all that deep analysis of prose stuff. But... 

*sigh* as I said the conversations between the two leads were all I liked in this one.
