Unholy Magic (Downside Ghosts Series #2)

Unholy Magic - Stacia Kane ETA: I came back to change this book to 5 stars. I can't stop reading Terrible's confession. I've probably read it 20 times today alone. I'm confilcted. Debating between 4 & 5 stars for this book so I'll settle for 4.5.Much better than Unholy Ghosts but still heartbreaking. I really don't know how I feel about Chess. She is one HOT MESS but she has heart. It's awkward/frustrating seeing how she rationalizes her actions, realizing they're wrong, and excusing them anyway. I know this is a UF novel but I live for Chess/Terrible interactions. TERRIBLE!!!!! “Shit. I want you, Chess. Make no mistake on that one, dig? Want you bad. So bad I ain’t even can think of any else sometimes, ’cept gettin you under me. Ain’t give a fuck what pills you swallow get you through the day or what happens you ain’t got em, aye? Still want you.But I ain’t … ain’t think I can take it, wakin up next to you on the morn, have you fake like nothin happened. Or tell me you made yourself a mistake. Or say, aye, thanks, maybe try that again on the sometime. I know how you run it, keepin it cool and no repeats, and I dig it, aye? Got your reasons. So I figure …I figure you really wanted me you’d say. Like now, maybe, if you dig. I’ll fuckin carry you down your place on a run, you tell me aye, get you on your back afore the next word comes out your mouth. But you oughta have yourself certain, causen I ain’t lookin for charity, an I ain’t lettin you go after. Once … once ain’t enough for me, dig?”*****AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!**********And another Chess/Terrible scene “Chess. Got an ask for you.” “Yeah?” It took her two tries to get the word out. “I got some pills on me, dig. Figure I hand em over, I come back your place on the later an fuck you? Ain’t sure how much you charge, but—” She slapped him."What the hell is the matter with you two?” “Ask her,” Terrible said. His thick finger pointed at her like an accusation. Which it was. “Goan, ask her.” “Fuck you, Terrible. Fuck you.” “Fuck you, you lyin little bitch.” “Asshole.” “Feels shitty, somebody play you the lead on, aye?” His eyes narrowed. “Make you feel stupid?”He's hurting! *saddddddd*
