Review: Stoned Kissed by Keri Stevens

Stoned Kissed
Keri Stevens

Paranormal Romance / Erotica

When Delia Forrest talks to statues, they talk back. She is, after all, the last of the Steward witches.

After an arsonist torches her ancestral home with her estranged father still inside, Delia is forced to sell the estate to pay his medical bills. Her childhood crush, Grant Wolverton, makes a handsome offer for Steward House, vowing to return it to its former glory. Delia agrees, as long as he'll allow her to oversee the restoration.

Working so closely with Grant, Delia finds it difficult to hide her unique talent—especially when their growing passion fuels her abilities.
But someone else lusts after both her man and the raw power contained in the Steward land. Soon Delia finds herself fighting not just for Grant's love, but for both their lives...






Interesting Concept!

Not a bad read, the story line concept of a witch being able to talk and communicate with statues is great. Though I enjoyed this concept I felt a little lost at points because there weren’t enough explanations of what was actually happening in the scene to get a full idea of what the author was trying to get across.

For example, in a scene, a cousin to Delia was some type of evil witch that killed several people for their essence/life force power. However the author’s description of her taking these individuals life was not clearly stated. The witch is kissing them and then she is collecting their bones and putting them into a bag to scatter them about. HELLO! My question is, what the hell happened – was she sucking their life force out with her kiss, what happened to their skin? My imagination only goes so far but sometimes it helps when the author gives us clues.

The romance between Delia and Grant was ok; I just didn’t feel much of a connection between them besides sex being good I thought the erotica scene was pretty good or just average.

The interaction between the statues was pretty humorous; I mean walking in on two statues having sex on a kitchen counter is pretty funny.

The ending was pretty good but I just thought there were too many unanswered questions for this stand-alone Novel. I mean, why did the witch want the Steward House besides it being supposedly having power? Why didn’t Delia know about this power? Why didn’t Delia claim to be a witch or that she had any powers?
