Publisher's Summary

Wanted: one demon hunter. Beware the matchmaking ghosts.

After years managing a haunted hotel and estate, I thought things were good. Sure, the ghosts can be a handful—nosy, opinionated, interfering—but they’re also friendly and fun. We have a system. Everything was under control.

Cue hysterical laughter.

But after a minor blip with a demon in the basement and a vortex to the spirit world, the ghosts swear they have no more secrets. The danger is gone, and we’ve done everything we can to make the vortex safe. It should be fine. Nothing’s come through it for 50 years.

It’s never that easy at Mannix Estate.

Lucky for us, the demon expert we met online is willing and able to help us out. I’m so grateful, I’d willingly kiss his feet. Until he arrives and opens his mouth.

Connor is...a jerk. But he’s a sexy jerk who’s doing us a favor, so I’m going to be polite no matter what. Even when he makes me mad. When he flirts hard. When the roof falls in and we have to share a bed. When we realize the vortex upstairs is just the beginning.

Suddenly, Connor’s real strengths shine. Beneath the smoking-hot yet annoying surface is a heart of gold, and I don’t think I can hold out against it…or that I want to.

3.5 Stars 🌟

This was the second book in a series that I was really excited about. I found the series on a lark and it really drew me in. For some reason, this second book just did not have the same impact on me. If I had to put it into words, it just felt flat. Everything had a kind of superficial layer on it. It's like we were only getting the highlights of the story without delving into the characters and THAT was what made the first book so good.

Don't get me wrong, I still liked the book. I was just a bit bummed that it did not grab me the way I was hoping it would. We still get to see the ghosts - though definitely not as much - and we did get to see the returning characters from book 1.

The romance pairing of this book was odd. Connor comes across as, well, as a jerk. I wasn't even sure where we were supposed to see the chemistry because most of all, he was downright annoying. Kieran is a really nice guy. He is responsible and caring and the hotel is his baby. Connor just came in and treated him like man candy...and not in a good way. If it was a male treating a female co worker in that way- it would have been downright offensive so I'm not sure why it was okay in this instance. Maybe I'm reading too much into this but it just didn't click for me. Kieran is annoyed with Connor for most of the book and them BAM all of a sudden, they are a couple.

Other than that - I do LOVE the premise. I love the secondary characters and I would definitely read another book in this series.

Great chemistry

I was eagerly waiting for part two of the series . I loved the steamy chemistry between the two protagonists! It seemed that the book was more focussed on the background plot than the relationship (but I am fine with that cause it was engaging). Waiting for book 3 !

Great series

I hope this isn’t the end to the series. I would like to hear what happens with the gateway. Of course there are also more romances to hear about. Please continue with the series.

Love it

I was so happy that we are back to Mannix Estate and this one is for Kieran. So, the lovable Skye gets possessed by a body-hopper and the crew at the manor has no clue what to do. So, they reluctantly contact Conner, who helped them get rid of the demon from the last book, and as for his help. As soon as Conner shows up, he knows there is a gateway open & he isn't going to leave until something is done about it. We find out how the vortex/gateway came to be & the person that set that into motion gets what is coming to him. Even though Conner comes off as a jerk when we first meet him, deep down he just wants to find someone to love & who will accept him for what he does & that he might need to leave on a moment's notice. Kieran is also shielding his heart and doesn't want to admit he is so very attracted to Conner. I loved when the ghosts "locked" Conner & Kieran in the basement playing matchmaker, they are so much fun. I can't wait for the next book.

Fantastic Sequel 🥰

This sequel to Spirited Situation is just brilliant 🤩

Louisa Masters excellently navigates MC’s, world building and humour throughout this book.

Paranormal is definitely suited for this author and it shows from book one through to this sequel.

Amazingly narrated by Nick J. Russo as expected from such a talented narrator.

Definitely gets 5⭐️‘s

A great story of the paranormal

🎧Narrated by Nick Russo Beautifully narrated and voiced bring all the characters to life.
A good start and the story continues after the first book with Josh, Edwin and Keiran with the others and there merry ghosts of Mannix House.
Keiran loved his ghosts at mannix estate but news of a vortex and a demon loose had him in panic mode. But they find it's not a demon.
Unfortunately Skye is the target for the body hopper taking over his body. Connor comes to the rescue again and educate them about vortex.
A great book to listen and read. I enjoyed this but didn't love it as much as the first book. The characters all get along to help Skye. Keiran and Connor's romance begins. HEA ending.

So good

So funny and sweet. Some hot sexy scenes. The story of the house continues from the second book. More great characters are added. Amazingly great narrator as always. Can be read as a stand-alone but will make more sense if read in order.
