Series Review: Nicki Styx series by Terri Garey

Dead Girls Are Easy, A Match Made In Hell, Weddings From Hell,
You're The One That I Haunt and Silent Night, Haunted Night are part of an ongoing series about Nicki Styx, a former Goth girl who becomes an unwilling ghoulfriend to the dead.

Dead Girls Are Easy

There's something about almost dying that makes a girl rethink her priorities. Take Nicki Styx - she was strictly goth and attitude, until a brush with the afterlife leaves her with the ability to see dead people. Before you can say boo, Atlanta's ghosts are knocking on the door of Nicki's hip vintage clothing store, Handbags and Gladrags. While she’d much rather be engaging in a few one-on-one anatomy lessons with the hot doctor who saved her life, she’s become a dead chick magnet to the dearly departed, and they don’t take no for an answer!

Things get even more complicated when a friend foolishly sells her soul to the Devil, and Nicki's new gift lands her in some deep voodoo. As Nicki Styx discovers, dead girls are easy... it's the live ones who cause trouble!

A Match Made In Hell

A spooky old house and a closet full of family skeletons leaves Nicki Styx wondering if her life will ever get back to anything approaching normal. Things go from bad to worse when the Devil himself shows up, on the lookout for a hot new girlfriend with the power to help him harvest lost souls. Demons may be a ghoul's best friend, but with this particular hottie, it could be a match made in Hell! 

You’re The One That I Haunt

Nicki Styx has a unique talent that's drawn her some unwanted attention - she can see and hear the dead. Unfortunately for her, she's drawn the eye of the Devil himself, and he's decided to make her life a living hell by tempting her at every turn. Now "in the flesh" as the smokin' hot owner of Divinyls, an indie music store across the street from Nicki's vintage shop, Handbags and Gladrags, Sammy Divine is the original bad boy with a dark side, and he's out to seduce Nicki Styx, one way or another!

Silent Night, Haunted Night

Joe Bascombe is no stranger to desire, but when a sexy spirit begins haunting his dreams, he finds himself ensnared by dark passions. What he doesn't realize that the devious demon and her two sisters, otherwise known as the Three Fates, are out to teach the woman he loves a lesson for helping the lost souls who come to her for guidance.

Unwilling psychic Nicki Styx survived a near-death experience to find herself able to see and hear the dead, but she only has eyes for Joe. Together, they've found love, conquered evil, and beaten back the Devil himself, but they're about to learn that there are more things in Heaven and Hell than they ever imagined. As far as Nicki is concerned, Joe is the man of her dreams, but now they're at the mercy of the creature who's invaded his!

It'll be a Christmas to remember, and it could be Joe and Nicki's last!

5 Loveys

Ghosts, zombies, witches, voodoo, Greek mythology, a long lost twin, a cross-dressing granny, a hot doctor and the devil himself; what more can you ask for in a paranormal series?

The Nicki Styx series is a romantic and chaotic ride from the first book to the last. Packed full of emotional highs & lows along with twists & turns that will keep you glued to the edge of your seat and up all night reading. Terri Garey has created a light and humorous series with just a sprinkle of urban dark fantasy here and there. An abundance of mystery, suspense and temptation will keep you on your toes and the clever, witty and fast paced plot will keep you entertained. Each character is sensational and dimensional with a natural growth through out the series. Every novel wraps up nicely with a few threads hanging for the next in the series and comes to an end that leaves you light and happy. A fantastic, must read series!
