Keenan Swanson is your typical, everyday graphic designer. Well, except for the hundreds of pesky, prank-loving poltergeists that make his life interesting (in a Chinese curse sort of way). He finds his situation precarious yet manageable—until witty, smoking-hot coworker Isabella enters the scene and Keenan decides he wants her all for himself. With a horny succubus who has other ideas, a burly city cop determined to lock Keenan away, and an evil entity who’s hell-bent on using Keenan’s seed to create a living demon, the reluctant psychic realizes he just might not come out of this alive—or with heart intact.
Everyone thought Keenan Swanson was a fry short of a happy meal because he was always talking to himself or to people no one else could see or hear. There was a perfectly logical explanation of course, Keenan sees, hears, and is usually surrounded by ghosts. Keenan is really attracted to the new head of HR at his graphic design firm, but his life and sanity are rapidly sliding downhill. He has now become the entrée of choice for a succubus, and if that weren’t enough he is now on a police sergeant’s radar.
Not everybody can like every book, and reviews are very subjective to personal taste and quirks. Although technically well written, this book just did not do it for me. I couldn’t connect with any of the characters, and for me the plot was just too busy with too many secondary characters moving in and out constantly. The main character, Keenan, to me was not that likable. I don’t like to give spoilers, but there are a plethora of ghosts, nosey obnoxious neighbors, multiple reincarnations, demons, angels, betrayals and infidelity (which is a huge no-no for me). I do believe there is an audience for this book, unfortunately I am not amongst it.
