Review: This book is a combination of three different stories involving Nick and John. It tells of their meeting and how they fell in love. It also talks about the gift of seeing spirits and helping them go on their way.
You will also get to see Josh and find out a bit about him.
I wasn’t sure about it at first, but my attention was caught. It has a serious tone to it but there is some humor to it that makes it a better read for me.
Laying a Ghost ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts
When John McIntyre sees Nick Kelley step off the island ferry, he’s instantly attracted, and fairly certain that he knows what Nick is keeping secret, because he’s been doing it himself for years. When he discovers Nick’s real secret he’s drawn into a world he never knew existed, one haunted by grief and guilt and ghosts. In the shadowed world of the spirits, Nick’s power is all that the ghosts have to help them. But Nick is still mourning the death of his lover in an accident he believes he caused, and John’s determined to keep their relationship secret.
It’s going to take a lot more than attraction and really good sex to solve their problems but will they be lucky? Or will one week be all they have before they’re left alone again?
John has always hidden what he truly was from his family. They lived in a small town that was not as progressive as they should be. Only his best friends new that he was gay. So things changed when Nick shows up.
Nick came to Scotland after his family passed. His uncle, who he had never met, left his mother the home in Scotland. After his partner’s death, he had to get away. You see he has one big secret, he sees ghosts.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading this. The title is a bit strange so I was a bit leery of taking it on. However once I started I couldn’t put the story down. It was fascinating and a bit freaky. Poor Nick not only sees them but hears them, so he must help them to go forward. This story was fun to read and I can’t wait to get started on the next book. However I must say that I would love to smack the shit out of his mother.
Giving Up the Ghost ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts
Most of the people in Florida are soaking up the sun. Nick and John are dealing with a plane crash, a gold-digger, a reporter with an eye on more than a good story, and some startling revelations about Nick’s family.
And that’s before the ghosts from the crash get angry with Nick, the one person who can hear them.
They’re struggling with their relationship when the trip begins — sex works, sex works well; it’s the other stuff that’s a problem. Getting away seemed like a good way to work things out. But this is one getaway that might leave John and Nick wishing they’d stayed at home.
Or it might be just what they needed to find out that home is where the heart is.
I do have to say that the titles are just bizarre but the stories are pretty cool. In this one John feels Nick is bored, but the truth is something else is going on. Nick has been having dreams and can’t figure them out. That is until he gets a phone call about a father he hadn’t seen in many years.
They end up in Florida dealing with his father’s crazy ass girlfriend, who is nothing more than a gold digging hussy. Also a reporter who recognizes him and many ghost. Then he finds out that he has a little brother. It would seem his little brother has a gift of his own, but it isn’t seeing ghosts.
This one was just as much fun as the first one, although these two really need to work on their communication. I almost gave up on John in the beginning but he redeemed himself really fast. I had a lot of fun with this and can’t wait to get started on the next story.
Walking the Dead ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts
When your lover can speak to ghosts and his half-brother can read minds, you get used to life being a step away from normal. But when angry ghosts take over the bodies of the living, seeking revenge for their centuries-old murders, even John and Nick have trouble coping.
Teenaged angst, pushy tourists, and the dead walking… If they want the peaceful summer they’d planned, they’re going to have to fight for it.
Side by side.
Nick’s brother Josh is now nineteen and coming for a visit. John’s niece is having difficulties with her mother and invites Josh to a camp fire down by the ocean. Ghost stories are told. There are rumors of two men being killed in the caves. So they decide to see what the cave looks like. But two teenagers inadvertently free their spirits. The men were angry at being killed. They say they were innocent but plan revenge.
Even John and Nick are having trouble trying to help these two men find peace. On the flip side the guys are doing amazing together and their love is stronger than ever. Dealing with mean spirits and two teenagers is just about as fun as the day is young.
I loved this story and can’t wait to see what else this amazing author has out. I think if I had Nick and Josh’s gifts I would go nuts. Although Josh’s does sound a bit more fun.
This was one amazing book. I wasn’t sure if I would like it because of the ghost but it was told with such a flare that I enjoyed the whole thing. It has a lot of different feelings going on that my attention definitely didn’t waiver a bit from this book. I even gave up dinner to finish it, it was that entertaining.
I would definitely recommend this book.
