RATING:  ★★★

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?


Demonically Tempted picks up where Supernaturally Kissed left off. Tess is still in a relationship Kipp, a hot ghost of a Memphis cop. I'm sure you are wondering how a human can have a relationship with a ghost, much less a sexual relationship with one. Well let's just say that they have to be creative.

Tess's ability to see and speak with ghosts comes in handy when trying to solve murder cases. And after Tess helped the police department solve a case in the last book, she is now on the payroll working on cold cases.

But Tess doesn't know how she power works so the head of the department, Max, enlisted the help of a medium that works with the FBI. Enter Dane, the sexy medium that can be a totally jerk. Kipp is not happy about Dane showing up but he keeps reasons from Tess which leads her to think that he is jealous of him.

But through Dane, Tess learns there are more than just ghosts out there. Like witches and demons.

While I loved the first book in the series, Supernaturally Kissed, I found that it took me about halfway through Demonically Tempted to really get into it. I think it was that DT feels like a bridge book. We need to read it to help build up to the 3rd book in the series. I think the romance was a little lacking but since Tess and Kipp are together and is strong a couple. I don't believe that romance was the main focus for this installment. Also I was missed the presence of Tess's spunky friend but she makes an appearance late in the book.

I had a major prediction about things that was going on with Kipp in the first book and I got my answer in DT. Now I have no idea where Kennedy is going to take us next in Kipp's journey. But I'm excited to find out.

Over all Demonically Tempted is an enjoyable read and if you have not checked out this series you really should. It's written very well and has some great characters and has a promising future in the story line department.

  1. Hi! I just joined Southern Book Bloggers, and I'm trying to connect with the other people on the site. I'm following your blog now—it's really cute! Here's mine if you want to check it out:


  2. Very nice review! I actually got into this one right off the bat - since we didn't have to go through the world-building, I liked how this one just jumped right in. I like how you described this as a bridge book. I see what you are saying. I wasn't overly happy with the SURPRISE - not that it is what it is, but that it took until the end of the second book to come out in the open. I adore the characters and can't wait to see what happens next!

  3. I felt the same way you did, Jennifer, about the first half. But I am so glad we were right about the (**you know what**) reveal!
