LEASHING THE TEMPEST by Jenn Bennett

Leashing the Tempest (Arcadia Bell, #2.5)
Dating a demon, defeating evil, running a tiki bar: Arcadia Bell is a great occult mage in many respects. But then there’s the challenge of her boyfriend’s precocious teenage son…
Arcadia "Cady" Bell may have saved the Hellfire Club’s children from a local bogeyman, but she and her Earthbound demon boyfriend, Lon Butler, now face a more disturbing problem: his teenage son’s new demonic abilities. Jupe Butler can persuade you to do anything—or so he thinks. To test the limits of his newfound power, Cady invites the co-owner of Tambuku Tiki Lounge to be the teen’s guinea pig during an afternoon boat cruise. But when an angry storm whips the Pacific into a frenzy and Jupe puts them all in serious danger, will Cady's magick trump a teenager’s excess confidence?
 
 
I love this series, so when this novella was released and I couldn't buy it because of stupid region restrictions, I was bummed. Then the lovely Jenn Bennett had a contest for overseas readers and I won a printed copy. Yay! :)

Since I received it on Friday and I wrapped up revision on my own book, I decided to make this my reward. And of course it was! I loved it.

Cady and Lon take Jupe and Kar Yee on a three-hour cruise so they can test the limits of Jupe's new persuasion knack. However, when the creepy Captain is put out of commission, the weather takes a dangerous turn, and something from the sea jumps on board...

This was another awesome Cady story filled with typical Jupe antics, danger, her strong relationship with Lon, and the use of her strong magical ability. Did I mention Lon? Yeah. Awesome!

Can't wait for the next book...
