Reap and Repent
The Reaper Series
Book 1
Lisa Medley

Genre: Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Big Cedar
Date of Publication: March 3, 2015

Book Description:

They see death. Can they share a life?

Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets. Then she meets Deacon Walker. She can see his ice-blue eyes, his black hair, and his gorgeous face. But this beautiful stranger has no aura.

Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by anything. As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature, she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t afford.

A demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness in his own past even as he fights to save the human souls he’s charged to protect. When he’s taken captive, his first concern is for Ruth. But Ruth just might be able to save herself—and the Reaper she can’t live without—if she can learn to wield her newfound powers.

My Review:  I am reviewing these individually because I feel that is fair to the author as she has taken some time writing these awesome books.  I never in my life thought I would enjoy books that involve grim reaping but I did.   This story did have a bit of inst-love but hey I have personally had some insta-love with a hot male before so I can’t really fault someone for falling for Deacon now can I?

This book did a great job of story development right from the beginning.   Right from the first three pages we were introduced to both characters and their unique abilities and it did not stop from there.  Their development is constant and never flat lines, Medley has done a fantastic job developing these characters that you really can’t help but pull for them as individuals and as a unit.

Hell even the side characters are complex and developed, and did I mention that this is book one in the series?

The plot is fast and I did not want to put this book down, but at 2am my eyes were heavy and I just couldn’t fight it anymore, even though I really really wanted to. I also like how the book clearly leads into book 2 but book 2 emphasizes on the “side characters”  fantastic paranormal romance series so far!

Book Description:

By day he saves lives in the city he loves. Can he save souls too?

Nate is an EMT, a witch and a newly inducted member of the Reaper Authority Force. What he’s not is a reaper. With unexplained abilities, his true nature lies somewhere in between the angels, demons and reapers he finds himself involved with. When he’s paired with the reaper Maeve, he struggles to find his place in the rising war to save the souls of Meridian and the world.

Maeve has tried to hide her reaper handicap–her toxic reaper energy–from her colleagues. But when she’s possessed by a fallen angel and forced to poach souls for Hell, her greatest weakness might be the only thing that saves her.

Nate uses his growing powers and his innate magic to find Maeve. He’ll do whatever it takes to save her, revealing more than he ever imagined in the process.

Making Hay by Pamela Morsi

24650003

Set in: Arkansas
Summary: At last Lessy and Vass are officially engaged. So why does it feel like maybe something is missing? Can a handsome rounder on the haying crew and a very indiscreet little song make of muddle of her upcoming marriage?

This novella is as warm and welcoming as a haystack.

Originally published in the Summer Magic anthology by various authors, (July 1, 1993).

I am not someone that will often seek out historical romance but as I am trying to read a book set in each state, I found this one while looking for a book set in Arkansas. I really enjoyed this novella. I found the story charming and somewhat real especially since I know couples that are very much like these two.

I have never read Morsi in the past but I will continue reading her in the future, overall this is a great, fast summer read that has a bit a steam for these hot summer nights we are experiencing
