Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e., murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life…and it turns out he might not be dead after all. In fact, he might be something else entirely.

My Review:

OKAY! This is my first time reading a weirdest, romance book ever. This book reminds me of the movie, Ghost in 1990. Charley actually fucked a ghost. There, I said it. Yes, Charley had a sex with a ghost which was a coma patient. You may call it out of the body experience. I am into paranormal romance; however, this is my first book about ghosts. That’s not all. A ghost that Charley fucked is actually a son of the Devil. Perhaps I should call him a “Incubus.” the plot was thrilled and interesting. It is unpredictable which I very much prefer. I like the characters especially Charley. She embraced her gift and made it useful to find the bad guys. Without her gift, she would be boring. However, there is one thing I don’t like about this book because I have to read more books to know how developing the relationship between Charley and the ghost.

If you like to read a romance suspense novel with some actions, then this book is right for you!

Mateo is in the pursuit to kill a murderer, Javier, who killed his brother. When he confronted Javier, he has something else in his mind instead of killing Javier. He used Javier as a source of information about a wealthy man named Dumas in the Mexico. There were a lot of rumors about the deadly drugs that were in Dumas’s control. However, to get in Dumas’s security place, he has to get somebody else involved to make his mission successfully.

Sophia Dumas is an intelligent, fierce, obstinate, loyal and proud woman. She’s a hard person to please, but once you get on her good graces, then you will falling in love with her. She feels that she is in a prison her father created for her. She’s not allowed to making any decisions without her father’s approval, or she will be punished if she didn’t obey her father’s orders. She had learned a hard and cruel lesson through her older sister when her father ordered to kill her older sister. She lives in fear, but she is too proud to indicate everyone that she’s scared for her life.

Mateo was in a dangerous mission, and Sophia was involved. He hates it because his feelings for her were clouded his judgments. Both of them got together in an unexpectedly circumstance. Will they go to their separate way once the mission is fulfilled?

I have a love and hate relationship with Sophia because she doesn’t know where she stands, and she was blinded by her loyalty to her father although there are many reasons for her to suspect his father’s wrongdoings. On the other hand, I like her strong personality, However, her strong personality is conflicted with her feelings.
