Audio 5 starsStory 3.5 stars round up for diversity The spooky stuff was fun, but I need convincing as far as the romance is concerned There wasn t enough build up or tension I m hoping I can feel connection between the MCs in the next book. I do love Jordan L Hawk s books and this is no exception Masterful blend of scariness and sexiness The concept of the rival ghost hunters, scientific and occult, is pure genius and I am deeply annoyed I didn t think of it, but delighted that a Jordan has such excellent ideas and b it s a series Henry is adorable and the supporting cast a huge strength of this author are fascinating and I hope we hear lots Loved it.
