Summary from Goodreads:

Kaylyn Anderson’s fascination with abandoned places and dark creatures kindled her work as a paranormal investigator. But when dreams begin to distort reality, she questions what is real and pulls away from everyone she trusts. The opportunity to investigate the Teague Hotel–a long-abandoned landmark that has always piqued her curiosity–provides a chance to redeem herself. Unraveling the hotel’s secrets won’t be easy, but Kaylyn soon finds herself the target of a dark entity that has been trapped in the building for decades.

If Kaylyn stands any chance of defeating the spirit, she’ll have to accept that her fears are real and convince fellow investigators that she hasn’t lost her mind.

My Thoughts:

Well peeps, this is normally not my genre and I usually don’t even write reviews for them, but this one just called out to me and, well, here I am! It’s definitely not what I thought it was going to be, but then again what book is. This is not a love story filled with sexual tension. This is a ghost story of sorts with a shit ton of anxiety to go with it! Thanks Skye! My heart palpitations have finally subsided!!

Our Main characters are Kaylen, her sister Cole, and their boss Jonah. There are more people involved in this story, but I feel it necessary to address the main characters only because they’re the ones you’ll be engulfed in. When I say engulfed, I mean they’re going to be the three who will suck you in, make you laugh, and even scare the ever-lovin’ shit out of you! Kaylen is as fucked up as they come, and not by choice! Although I think she’s a little out there to begin with! She’s being sought out by an entity and it makes her do and say funny things. I found myself going back to reread because I wasn’t sure who said what, Kaylen or the entity! LOL! Her sister Cole is just as funny if not funnier. She’s a “no hold barred” kinda girl and believe me, some of the shit that comes flying out of her mouth, holy hell! Now Jonah, well, he of course comes across as a total prick, but slowly wins my heart and trust for that matter! Hotness and brains, who knew!

All is all, it’s a superbly written tale and flows very nicely. The pacing is good and keeps you turning pages in record time! It’s 150 (Kindle version) pages long and from chapter one to chapter eighteen I was hooked! Too many highs and lows to mention and the climax was perfect! Nice job Skye, you’ve got a frontrunner here!
