Nicki Styx series, book 3
By Terri Garey
Nicki Styx has a unique talent that's drawn her some unwanted attention - she can see and hear the dead. Unfortunately for her, she's drawn the eye of the
Devil himself, and he's decided to make her life
a living hell by tempting her at every turn.
Now "in the flesh" as the smokin' hot owner
of Divinyls, an indie music store across the street
from Nicki's vintage shop, Handbags and Gladrags, Sammy Divine is the original bad boy with a dark side, and he's out to seduce Nicki Styx, one way or another!
*Spoiler Alert- If you haven’t read the first two books in this series yet this review will probably contain spoilers for you.*
Nicki Styx, the girl who sees dead people, is back and better then ever in this third installment. You’re the One That I Haunt is another fun read that you won’t be able to put down. Chuck full of romance, suspense and chaos with a clever, witty, fast paced and exciting plot, you will be falling in love with Nicki Styx and company all over again. Garey brings such laugh out load humor to what could be a dark story.
Nicki is learning to adjust and live with her “knack” while her relationship with Joe grows and becomes more serious. And there is a long awaited love scene *squee*, I won’t spoil it for you though! Joe is looking for a bigger commitment from Nicki and she has to work through a few personal issues that she has been struggling with since the beginning of the series. There are some bumps along the road, as is to be expected, but Nicki seems to mature a lot in this book. Good for her!
Sammy Devine is back and hotter then ever! He is stepping up his game to seduce Nicki and bring her over to the dark side. Temptation has never been so hard to resist, you almost want Nicki to slip up! Or maybe that’s just me and my love for bad boys, *mmm…* Trying to get Joe out of the picture Sammy makes a deal with newly deceased Crystal, an anorexic teen, who passes away on the way to the E.R. and who Joe ultimately has to pronounce dead on arrival. She blames Joe for her death and is out to make his & Nicki’s life a living hell with her vengeance. With a very troubled and disturbing past this may just be one ghost that Nicki can’t handle. Then when a coven of witches shows up at Handbags and Gladrags Nicki must lean on her “Grandmother” Bijou and her group of Savannah Garden Club members for help.
Nicki’s sister Kelly, who I don’t much care for as stated in previous reviews, has limited “air time” but is very supporting of Nicki. You can see that they’re relationship has strengthen over the last few months. And Evan and Butch have a strong story line that is touching and entertaining.
Another great read from author Terri Garey, they just keep getting better and better!
