Beg Me to Slay - By Lisa Kessler

He’ll slay her demons, but it may cost her heart…
Four years ago Tegan Ashton was attacked. Determined never to be a victim again, she devotes her life to martial arts and self-defense. When her assailant returns to finish what he started, only one person can help her.

Gabe is a private investigator by day and demon slayer by night. After losing loved ones, he vows to defend people from a threat they don’t realize exists.

The relationship is supposed to be strictly business, but fighting demons together stirs up emotions they never expected. Turns out demon slaying is a breeze compared to facing their scarred pasts and even worse - hearts.
Kessler has a way with paranormal romance and her latest release is no exception. Tegan is a kick butt female lead who was assaulted but refuses to let herself be the victim. She is now a black belt in some martial art and  wont hesitant to beat the crap outta someone if necessary. But just because she is stronger doesn't mean she isn't prone to weakness or fear and that's what I love about her. Her strength comes from overcoming her fear of being helpless, attacked or hurt.

Gabe, the slayer is more than simply human but his attraction to Tegan is sweet. They both fight against it because of their working relationship, hired help and all that jazz. It was annoying how dumb they both were when it came to their feelings but I forgave them for it. They were too cute and funny to stay mad at for long.

The plot was a good mix of romance and intrigue with a few surprise twists at the end to keep you on your toes. I have to admit Maddock, Tegan's Welsh father stole my heart for favorite character with his gruff, sweet way of going about life. I definitely recommend Beg Me to Slay if you're in the mood for paranormal romance!
