Serafina's Series - Book 2
I LOVE THIS BOOK! Jilly is a total kick ass take no prisoners leading lady and I adore her. She doesn't take crap from anyone and has no qualms doing what needs to be done even breaking into someones house. With a sassy sense of humour to match, hacker geek hot chick Jilly has to be one of my favourite characters ever. I think her inner geek brings out my inner geek and can't help but want to meet her, work with her and be best friends forever! But she's not always as strong and fiery as I make out, Jilly has a past that haunts her and she wears her make-up like an armor. Her family is a bunch of criminal types and keeps her distance from them. Then sexy virtual hot shot Genesis Adam materializes onto the scene, literally and Jilly is thrown into a whirlwind virtual game romance. Genesis Adam is wickedly funny and the perfect match for Jilly. They push, challenge, laugh and get all nerdy and sweet. Their energy together is electric, the sex is crazy awesome and I just wanted all of the world's happiness for them both.Real man versus dead man - no contest!Dale Ewan, the wealthy owner of Genesis Gaming, has a serious poltergeist problem. In desperation, he calls on Edinburgh's unique psychic investigation agency, Serafina's. But Sera and her hacker friend, the beautiful and aggressive Jilly, find more than one spirit haunting the ugly country house. While Sera fights the poltergeist, Jilly encounters what appears to be the ghost of Dale's brilliant ex-partner, Genesis Adam, trapped in his own new virtual reality system. Jilly delves headlong into Adam's mystery. How did he get there? Why is he more exciting and attractive than any of the real men in her life? How are Jilly's own criminal brothers involved in his death? And what are Dale and his wife Petra hiding? Apart from the body buried in their garden...While Jilly falls in love with the sexy, virtual ghost, Sera has problems of her own, not least the shadowy presence of the undead Founder that seems to threaten Sera, her vampire lover Blair, and all her friends.
The plot to this second book of the Serafina's series was so much more interesting than the first. I was being surprised at every turn and as I do with every good mystery novel - I was making guesses like crazy about who was guilty. I definitely was NOT expecting the person it turned out to be and the sneaky twist Treanor adds in had me screaming like I'd won a million dollars, I was so happy! I admit to having misgivings about Jilly's story especially because I hadn't enjoyed book one very much but I enjoyed every page of this book! There is sharp wit and genuineness that was lacking in book one. I love Jilly and Genesis' story so much I will definitely be buying a copy to keep on my e-reader. I recommend that you read this book even if you didn't enjoy book one because Jilly and Genesis stole my heart and I hope they steal yours too!
