Spotlight Review: KISS & HELL by Dakota Cassidy!

KISS & HELL - Dakota Cassidy
Berkley Sensation
ISBN: 978-425-22785-5
June 2009
Paranormal Romance

United States - Present Day

Delaney Markham can hear and see ghosts. This very annoying ability of hers has kept her from living a normal life. She does her best to help departing souls choose the right path rather than go to hell, but sometimes this really ticks off Satan and all his minions. She is holding a séance to make ends meet and pay for dog chow when one extra annoying ghost just will not go away. But is he a ghost or a demon?

All signs point to Clyde Atwell being much more than an ordinary confused soul; in fact, he’s a brand new demon recruit. Delaney’s demon best friend, Marcella, is proof that not all demons march to Satan’s drumbeat, but what exactly does the very sexy Clyde want with Delaney, and are they on the same team? Hell gets a lot hotter as Delaney and Clyde, with a little help from Marcella, try to figure out how Clyde went from human to demon without any warning. Meanwhile, Delaney’s mysterious past is catching up with her, and Satan is coming to make good on his threats.

Dakota Cassidy writes a page-turning plot that readers won’t want to put down once they begin this new take on life after death. Clyde is one of the sexiest heroes I’ve read in a while, but Delaney, despite Clyde’s super brain, is the crackerjack who solves the puzzle and saves the day. Marcella adds great comedic relief in the form of fashion and sarcasm. Readers will appreciate the twists and turns in the plot as Ms. Cassidy thrills us with a surprise ending.

Anyone who loves a good story of the after-life and a passionate romance will be more than overjoyed with KISS AND HELL. Ms. Cassidy’s blend of dialogue and narrative writing clearly demonstrates that she has a promising career. I can’t wait to read more of her work. For a scorching read, I highly recommend KISS AND HELL.
