Dying is all in a day’s work. Love is more dangerous.

Ghostwalker Sam Jones has been half in love with Michael King since he started working at Requiem Inc. But Michael is his boss and a Guardian, to boot. Sam thinks they could make it work anyway, but Michael uses his position and his age to keep Sam at arm’s length.

When Sam continues to volunteer for the most dangerous cases, Michael has to intervene. He tells himself he’s just doing his job, but he’s always seen Sam as more than another operative, and he can’t bear the thought of not taking his chance. The connection between them has been strong from the beginning, and Michael’s telepathy adds unexpected depth and an edge to their new romance, but working together while they try to build their relationship might be the hardest part of their job if they don’t make some sacrifices.

Review

It’s hard to be a sequel. I know this. I absolutely ADORED book 1 in this series and I had SUPER high hopes for this because Michael (and Sam) seemed like really intriguing characters with awesome powers and a lot of sexual chemistry.

Most of that proved true. However…. I was so frustrated with Michael and his (abuse, neglect) avoidance of Sam that he definitely lost some of his luster. Ditto with Sam and his willingness to bend so much without standing up for himself.

The paranormal stuff wasn’t as captivating as it was in book 1 but it’s still great!

I think you need to have read book 1 to really like this – so I’m not going to call it a standalone – but it might be ok.

If you loved book 1 you’ll really enjoy this.

Recommended!
