Delaney and her six dogs had me giggling and snorting the majority of this book. I can relate to a woman who brings home unwanted strays. I am owned by 4 dogs and 3 ferrets. Delaney has been blessed/cursed with the ability to see and talk to ghosts for nearly 15 years. Most people just think she is the crazy dog lady down the street. Her ability has wreaked havoc on her social life. She does what she can to help the wayward ghosts. Only her latest ghost is corporeal, hot, doesn’t understand half of the things she is saying, sexy, binded to her in some unknown manner, overly attractive, and not looking to go forth into the light.

Clyde was the most awesome hero I have read in a while. He totally rocked the hunky dork image. I loved how he was an endless fount of useless TV game show trivia. The fact that he completely understood Delaney and all of her crazy was just icing on the geeky hunk man cake. He does not understand how he ended up in Hell and is now a demon. He is using his time assigned to Delaney to put all the pieces together and try to get out of the fire he has found himself in.

I will definitely move onto the next book. It goes to Delaney’s hottie of a brother and her bestie/demon friend. I liked the lightness of Kiss and Hell. It’s a very bubbly humorous read. The reader can’t help but wonder how Delaney has made it this far in life, thus you have to keep reading to see what will happen next. There is a nice mix of twists and turns that keep the pages turning rapidly and a very climatic action packed tear jerking ending. Cassidy has also thrown a cast of supernatural superstars into the mix to give Delaney a helping hand so that her crazy self can finally have the happily ever after that she so deserves. 

Clyde to Delaney
"I think we should just have a running apology from here on out in our relationship. I'll always just be sorry and you can always be angry that I had to be sorry for whatever reason I'm sorry. Deal?"
