Review: Demonically Tempted by Stacey Kennedy

Demonically Tempted by Stacey Kennedy

* I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Amazon Product Description:
Tess Jennings, now a member of the Memphis Police Department, is on her first cold case. The suspected suicide of Lizbeth Knapp ten years ago isn’t a theory her family accepts—they believe she was murdered. But the case is only one of Tess’s worries. Ghosts are talking, and word of her abilities rapidly spreads. A dark ghost is terrifying the spirits of Memphis, and she must force the entity to cross over. Tess doesn’t have to do this alone. Not only does she have her ghost-lover, Kipp McGowen, but the department has brought in a medium. Dane Wolfe might answer all her questions, but he also brings a world of trouble. Will Tess finally have all she’s ever wanted, or will everything she’s vowed to protect be ripped away?

My thoughts:
     Demonically Tempted takes up right where Supernaturally Kissed leaves off.  You can see my review of Supernaturally Kissed HERE and will see that I loved it.  This sequel is also amazing.  
     Stacey Kennedy has brought back all the characters that I loved from the first book and added some new faces.  The new characters are as well created as I expected and I loved and hated them as if they were real people in the lives (so to speak with Kipp being a ghost and all) of Tess and Kipp.  Dane Wolfe is a new face and the man has some issues!  I won't go into detail - spoilers and all - but I truly wanted to kick him in the shoe!
     Tess is now part of the police department and so her role is a bit different.  In this book she really comes into her own with her gift.  
     The story is intriguing and very different from the first book, although of course we are still dealing with spirits.  It is well paced and well written.  I couldn't put it down, reading faster and faster on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next.  I got to the end of the book and was feeling like I knew exactly where the story was going when BAM! I was twisted and turned.  The rollercoaster that is the last part of the book took me flying around a corner and then.....cliffhanger!  Cannot wait for the next book!  DO NOT MISS THIS ONE!
