In BEG ME TO SLAY, Tegan Ashton survived a vicious attack
four years ago and no one had been able to find her
assailant. She is a survivor and just getting her life
together when she sees the same "man" burying someone on
the beach. The police don't find anything and don't believe
her so she goes to someone who might be able to help her.
Gabriel Smith is a private and paranormal investigator and
a demon slayer. He immediately knows that this is a case
for him and bullies his way into her life. Slowly he makes
her believe in demons and things that go bump in the
night. He also learns quickly that she is resilient and a
quick learner and starts to dig into the emotion-free wall
he has built around himself.
As they work together to find the demon who attacked her
years ago, there are many ups and downs for this couple.
They both have so many secrets and so much pain is it at
all possible to overcome this and find they were made for
each other? With the past colliding with the present can
they make it together or must one sacrifice for the others
BEG ME TO SLAY is fast paced, action packed and an
emotionally deep paranormal story. Author Lisa Kessler has
created a world I want to visit again and again. Gabe had
me at his first Dr. Pepper and Tegan when she had to
explain her name was like Megan only with a T. They are
seemingly mismatched; she is tough and can stand on her own
feet and he is tough and tends to be a protector... but
hearts say they are perfect for each other. Various secrets
pop out here and there giving our couple a number of twists
to the path of revenge or justice ... or maybe it's a little
I will admit there is one scenario in BEG ME TO SLAY
that I never care for in a book though it is used a lot.
The hero confesses his love then walks away because it will
be better for her if he leaves. I admit in this case it is
understandable but it is just something that always bugs
me. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Kessler but
it will not be the last.
