Review: Supernaturally Kissed by Stacey Kennedy

Supernaturally Kissed by Stacey Kennedy

Ghosts harass and annoy Tess to save their souls. Sometimes she helps them. Other times she ignores them. But one ghost will give her no choice.

Kipp, a former cop with the Memphis Police Department, will stop at nothing to gain her help, including using his ghostly charms to seduce her.

Tess must help solve the five-year-old cold case of Hannah Reid's disappearance, because solving the case will save Kipp. But a bigger problem presents itself. Tess is falling in love with a ghost. Now she must decide. Keep Kipp forever, or find the killer.

Blush sensuality level: This is a sensual romance (may have explicit love scenes, but not erotic in frequency or type).

My thoughts:
     I am a Stacey Kennedy fan so I was excited to read this story.  I found the idea of falling in love with a ghost unique.  
     Stacey Kennedy is a storyteller.  She creates characters that are easily invested in, sets them in a world that is believable and carefully put together.  She has the ability to pace the story is such a way that it just unfolds before you from the pages you don't realize you are turning.  I enjoy her writing style.
     With that said, this book did not disappoint.  I fell for the characters right away.  Kipp is a fantastically created character - although he is a ghost - he has a clever and playful personality.  Tess is a wonderfully put together character.  Actually, all the characters have been painstakingly personalized in their creation.  I felt like I knew each one.
     The story is unique in the ghost/human love portion, but also a well-rounded murder mystery.  Fast paced, edge of the seat drama, mystery, and a shell shocking ending.

Wonderfully written, steamy love story - don't start it unless you can finish not only this one, but the next one - Demonically Tempted.  (Book three comes in the fall of 2012).
