He’s a reaper who works by the book. But a sexy shifter will have him changing the course of fate just to be with her—if a killer doesn’t get to her first…
After four years as a reaper, helping souls cross into the afterlife is a job Adam Javorski has finally gotten used to. But when he arrives at the site of a serial killer’s latest victim, finding a living—not to mention gorgeous—hostage is the last thing he expects. The young woman captivates him in a way no one ever has—so much so, he breaks rule number one by helping her escape…
Marlena Walther doesn’t remember the man who rescued her. But when she sees Adam again, she recognizes him instantly as her soul mate. While the two work together to track down a killer determined to finish what he started, their undeniable attraction draws them even closer. Now Adam is the only one who can protect Marlena from a vengeful murderer—if he’s willing to sacrifice everything for her.
Alright, I’m going to be completely straightforward and tell you that it’s been close to a lifetime while I’ve been trying to write this review. Why? Not because I didn’t like the book because I loved it. Not because I couldn’t find anything to say about it because damn, my mind’s been filled with things I wanted to say even while still reading the book. The only other option left was that I’m stuck with my words. Still with me on the blog? Thank you, lovelies. So I’ve decided to pull on my big girl panties and sit down after a nice meal and a cup of tea and write this review down.
The last time I’ve seen Adam, he was the new reaper in town and still hadn’t come to terms with his situation, you know, the fact that he was dead and expected to reap souls and all that. Until we’ve come to Adam we’ve gone through some time, so the Adam we meet in this book was the more mature version of the once-rookie. Being a cop in his mortal life, the circumstances under which he meets Marlena compel him to help her. Not only that, but he also feels a strange pull toward her, one that he can’t help but ignore.
