Tess Jennings can see ghosts, heck she talks to them and tries to help them if she can. She is now a member of the Memphis Police Department, the same department and team that her new boyfriend is part of. Yes, amazingly enough he is a ghost too. Tess’ new job is working on cold cases and her first case is a doozy. Kipp McGowen might be a ghost but he will do everything in his ability to help and protect Tess. Even when a medium is brought in to help, one that Kipp can sense is going to be trouble; however, he knows that Tess needs someone who can answer her questions. Both Kipp and Tess know that their relationship is more than unusual, yet the love is there and fierce.
Tess and the team are looking for answers in what appears to be a suicide, yet the clues are beginning to prove that this is nothing like it appears. Tess is dealing with Kipp’s sudden possessiveness and could it be, jealousy against the medium the department brought in. As answers in the case are leading Tess to discover new things about her abilities, she feels pulled by what her heart wants and what others are telling her should happen. Tess finally learns her true path just when her heart seems to be pulled from her. She might have found the answers to her cold case, but Tess’ work has just begun for Kipp and their love.
Love will need to battle against the hearts that found it with the presence that wants to end it. Tess learns people will try to force their beliefs on what she and Kipp have in Demonically Tempted. I fell for Kipp and Tess the first time I met them and this next adventure just had me falling for them harder. I thought it was great that Kipp’s department believed enough in Tess and her abilities to bring her on their cold cases team and even arranged for some help for her. Yet, I found the trouble exceeded the help that the medium brought. I enjoyed my glimpses of Tess and Kipp’s relationship and mourned for them on the twist that happened to their relationship. I loved watching Tess overcome the enemy that was hurting the ghosts needing her help. I have to say that the final cliffhanger has me pacing while waiting for the next adventure for Tess and Kipp. If you love this couple like I do, I bet you will be right beside me. Demonically Tempted has the best combo of love, suspense, magic and humor – one that gripped me from the first page until I reluctantly turned the last page.
After I finishing, I knew that I had to Joyfully Recommend this journey that Tess and Kipp found themselves on as a must read and a keeper. I know that it and the first book of their meeting, Supernaturally Kissed, will never leave my reader.
