Nayeli has been locked away, hidden from the world in a mental institution, all due to the whispers of evil which have corrupted her mind. Unbeknownst to her, the voices that have plagued her are a gift given to only one kind―Watchers.
Griffin, her Seeker, is about to break this cage of imprisonment woven around her and give her a new chance at life. But when a demon leaves the confines of Hell to create havoc in Louisiana, will his love for Nayeli free her wounded heart, or will she succumb to the whispers which threaten to steal her soul?
*WARNING: Explicit sex between a timid Watcher and a gorgeous Seeker, and a ceremony that will certainly raise eyebrows!

Book 2 of the The Watchers begins with Griffin, one of the Seekers on a mission to rescue his Seeker, Nayeli from the mental institution she has been in nearly all her life. Unaware that the voices she hears are her gift, she’s been raised to believe she’s mentally unstable by those around her, including her parents who abandoned her when she was just a child. In a matter of seconds Nayeli’s life is completely altered when she’s taken from the Hell she’s lived in and given a second chance at life. What lies in store for her is a world with new experiences that also comes with danger, but Nayeli is willing to risk those dangers for a chance at freedom and love.
I was so entranced with Griffin and Nayeli’s story I read it in one sitting! While the first book introduced us to the Watcher Paxtyn, who is extremely outspoken and wild, this book’s heroine, Nayeli, is naive and fragile. One would think her inexperience and sheltered life should make for a shy and uninteresting heroine, but Nayeli is a smart and courageous character that touches your heart from the start. I would classify her as a tortured heroine at the start of the book but her character grows and becomes the strong leading lady you cheer for in paranormal romance.
Griffin blew me away with his tenderness and patience when it comes to Nayeli, I absolutely fell in love with him! He’s the perfect balance of an Alpha hero: he’s a powerful warrior in the face of danger and the sensual lover in the bed with his woman. Griffin understands Nayeli’s tendency to shut everyone out and conceal her emotions, but he never gives up on her and comforts her every step of the way. Their relationship is truly romantic and their intimate encounters almost set my Nook on fire! Stacey’s beautiful writing allows you to tap into the character’s emotions and step into the story as if you were living it.
This story was a little more fluid than the first in the series and grasped my attention from the first page. There is the ongoing battle of good vs. evil with the demons that still exists and we get to see some old faces as well. Paxtyn plays an important role in this story and she was absolutely hilarious with her one-liners, she made me like her more in this book! As usual, Stacey Kennedy writes a story with such depth and emotion it’s nearly impossible to not become fully invested. WHISPERS OF EVIL is a sexy, feel good romance with elements of danger that will stir up your emotions and leave you ready for more!
