The Exorcist Who Loved Me by Jennifer Savalli #review
Posted by brriske
Hiring an exorcist is not something widowed single mom Holly Archer ever thought she’d do. But the blackouts she’s been having mean someone—or something—is hijacking her body and she wants it stopped, like yesterday.
The hottie who shows up at her door is the first man who’s sparked her interest since her awful marriage. It’s no hardship to give herself over to his skills, and in short order the spirit is ejected—and Holly comes face to face with Celia, the ghost of her dead husband’s mistress.
Lawe Callahan figured this would be an easy case, and by morning he’d be headed for another town, leaving Holly and her witchy amber eyes behind. Until she agrees to help the ghost, who refuses to budge until her killer is brought to justice.
As the investigation heats up, so does Lawe and Holly’s attraction. But their differences not only threaten any chance of something real, their quest for the truth could drive a killer to tie up all loose ends—permanently.
Holly is a mother of twins (boy and girl) that recently become a widow due to her cheating, good for nothing, and frivolous husband. Yeah, Paul was a no good man. In fact, I doubt anyone truly liked him after spending some time with him. Holly is more furious than anything when he died because the rumors spread that the reason of his car accident was a blow job given by his mistress. Now, a spirit is possessing her every now and then, making her change her clothing and make up style. She only wants to get rid of the spirit and move on with her life, which couldn’t be more difficult at that moment. What Holly didn’t expect was a sexy exorcist that came into her life.
Honestly speaking, I was pretty surprised by the way the plot developed at the beginning. It felt quite surreal that Holly could have a conversation at all with the spirit that possessed her, especially when it was the dead mistress of her cheating husband. I truly felt she was rude to the mistress at some points but, to be fair, the woman has every right to be. Nevertheless, Celia made some pretty good points about how vague was the investigation of her death. In fact, I must admit that I had the filling her version of how things happened on that “tragic day” would plant doubt on Holly’s mind.
Celia was a great character. I know I should hate her just because she was the mistress. However, she made me laugh so hard at some points. There are times in which you can’t help but like a character, no matter how much of a jerk or bitch it is. Now, Lawe is the one that truly stole my heart. He gives this lone wolf vibe at the start of the novel but you can’t help but notice this protective aura he emits whenever he feels Holly might be in danger. I also got to see his warm and funny side. What can I say? This character stole the show for me.
If you would love to follow a widow, her death husband’s mistress, and a handsome exorcists that promises to be much more than what he seems as they try to uncover the truth about an unfilially and, possibly, criminal man; then this is the book just for you.
