Conner Sutherland never thought he’d meet the love of his life in the Afterlife…
Conner Sutherland has been alone for a long time. He can’t remember the last time he even felt the desire to be touched by another man. Sometime before his death, when he’d still been Laine’s lover. But Laine had found Severo years ago, and if any two people were meant for each other it was Laine and Sev. Where that leaves Conner, he doesn’t know, other than feeling lost and out of sorts.
He doesn’t want to think about the way he feels when he sees Ro—Rogelio, Sev’s nephew. Conner’s seen Ro grow from pretty boy into a handsome man, but wanting him is foolish and useless. Ro’s got a life to live, and even if he does things that hurt Conner, that’s not Ro’s fault. He doesn’t know he entranced Conner long ago.
Ro has only ever wanted one man for keeps. It’s a pointless want, though, because Conner Sutherland is dead and too busy pranking Laine and Sev to notice Ro anyway.
But life, and death, have a way of surprising you, as Ro and Conner find out.
This was a little bit of an unusual story, but it does fit right in with the rest of the series. I have never read a story where spirits fell in love, but I have to say surprisingly it was a good story.
You start out with so much sadness, but you still get the sweet romantic story of Connor and Ro. Their destiny was to be together. It was awful the bad things done to Ro before he passes on. But everyone deserves to fall in love with their soul mate.
It was perfect for this series the whole spirit angle was very entertaining. I loved how it was wrapped up in this book.
