Review: Stolen Dreams by Stacey Kennedy - And a Giveaway!


Synopsis:

Tess Jennings has the ability to see and talk to spirits. On a daily basis, they harass and annoy her to save their souls. Sometimes she helps, other times she ignores them, but one ghost will give her no choice. Kipp McGowan, a cop with the Memphis Police Department, uses his ghostly charms to gain her attention and forces her to expose herself to his partner.

As she’s pulled into the five year old cold case of Hannah Reid she wants no part of, she finds herself in more than one precarious situation. But that’s the least of her worries―Tess begins to have a serious problem on her hands. Kipp might be dead, but he’s drop-dead gorgeous and she’s beginning to forget that he’s a ghost.

Murder and corruption has brought Tess and Kipp together. But as her feelings for Kipp deepen, she suspects she just signed herself up for a one-way ticket to the nut house, and can only hope, straitjackets come in a size four.



Review:

I gave this book 5 stars. It was really interesting – I've never read a book where the love interest was a ghost. I really wondered how that was going to work. I mean, how can you have a relationship if you can't even touch? If you think there couldn't be a sex scene in this book – you're wrong!! The scene is definitely steamy – and unique! The relationship between Tess and Kipp was really sweet. The book leaves you so frustrated about the fact that they can't touch at all – but you can't put the book down because you want to see how it plays out. There is also a murder mystery involved, which keeps the book exciting! Stacey Kennedy is so good at making her characters likable, and her stories unique. This book has the perfect amount of humor, romance, passion, and mystery. They ending left me groaning – such a cliffhanger! I cannot wait until the 2nd book in this series comes out – which will be in May. I am so curious how this story continues. There are so many directions this story could play out – how exciting!

Now for the giveaway!!! One lucky winner will win a Stolen Dreams eBook! The winner can choose the format – Kindle, Epub, PDF, RTF, LRF, and PBD. Non eBook users can get the PDF format and print the book off at home! I used to do that before I got my eReader, lol... Hey, I was desperate to read books that weren't available in paperback, lol... Anyway, please leave a comment here with your email address if you would like to enter to win. A winner will be randomly selected on Sunday!

  13. Great review. I'm wondering if this book is available in paperback? Sounds really good. Have you checked out the Mediator series by Meg Cabot?You might be interested. Those are for young adults but they're rather good.
