Jade loves her new apartment - until a ghost joins her in the shower.
When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn't count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord.
Being an empath has never been easy on Jade's relationships. It's no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it's up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her. Except she'll need Kane's help - and he's betrayed her with a secret of his own - to do it. Can she find a way to trust him and herself before Pyper is lost?

Yes. The book is a fresh change from recent publications. It touches on the metaphysical and the current.
The heroin. Her character development was real.
A wonderful dramatization.
Witches, Angels, and Demons in the Crescent City. A modern day battle between good and evil. A resurrection of the eternal battle between God and Satan.
The book captured your interest from the beginning.
I never have enough time for an all-in-one-sitting read/listen, but it could capture your interest for that period of time.
Engaging and interesting paranormal story. Great character development and just a fun read. One of the tests of this type of story is when an author can have romantic interests that are hot without having to get too graphic with sex scenes. That takes much more talent and story telling capabilities. After all, we are adults and know what goes on behind closed doors.
By the way, purchased this as an e-book for my Kindle and then the Audible version for Whispersync. This feature is fantastic. I can listen to the audible version when commuting in my car or working around my house, but can switch back and forth to enjoy on my Kindle anytime, anywhere, and enjoy a nice quiet read.
I love this quirky sub genre. The story was once I got a grasp of who everyone was. The funny thing about this genre is everyone uses the same or similar names, which if you're a fan of these types of stories can be confusing and hard to place characters in your head. But overall it was a good listen/read. I do love that it was a little bit more R rated when it came to relationships. Some of the other books in this sub genre tend to be a little censored or glazed over completely. I appreciate that Deanna used "damn" instead of "darn", because it what real adults use in everyday conversation. Anyways great book highly recommended.
Title: "Haunted on Bourbon Street"
Written by: Deanna Chase
Narrated by: Traci Odom
Format: audiobook via audible.com
My rating: 4/5 stars
Four SOLID/5 stars! I almost dropped that fifth one as I reeeeally liked this story! I may have liked it even more had I read it & not listened to it, but I'm not sure.
The narrator was adequate, but I found myself needing to rewind & re-listen many times throughout; I have found that's often due to my mind wandering & not feeling engaged while listening. Sadly & whether it's appropriate or not: I pin that on the poor narrator! (Apologies! No offense intended!).
I adore almost anything paranormal & this was definitely such! I do have to admit to getting irritated with "main characters" when they're ignoring/fighting their "gift" &/or keeping it a secret from an important friend, family member, significant other, etc., but not enough as to ruin the story for me.
Regardless, I'll definitely give book two a go, but I'm not sure which format I'll try next time.
No spoilers, just my rambling thoughts! 😉
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy, fellow reader!
The writing was disjointed ad there were poor transitions from location to location and time frame to time frame. The premise of the book had potential but sadly fell extremely short. It is a poor combination of paranormal mixed with a romance novel listing towards soft porn. The writer needs to find her genre.
