Love, Like Ghosts follows Adrian, a college student at UNC who is a little different than the rest. While most students would rather be out partying, he'd rather sit in his apartment and do his physics homework. Oh yeah, and he has psychokinesis, the ability to move things with his mind. Then he meets two people who change his world - Greg Woodhall, a theater major that he meets while constructing a haunted house and Lyndon Groome, a ghost who was murdered back in 1905.

Let me start out by saying...more
Telekinesis is one part of the paranormal world that I don't have a lot of exposure to. This book was interesting in that it gave me a little deeper glimpse. As far as the characters, I honestly felt closer to the host than anyone. I'm not sure why. There was just something missing in these characters and I couldn't give you an exact reason. Otherwise, it is an interesting read. ...more
Love, Like Ghosts
Poly Relations With Dead People Only Not Actually

It's interesting when you get a novel that straddles genre, because even when two genres are present, one tends to win out in the end. Though a dosing of supernatural haunts the back of these books, ultimately, these are romances. Intensely character focused, the paranormal takes a back seat for character interaction.

And they're good, if you want a slow, leisurely build. Which often I do, I hate when novels rush the emotions. Bu...more
Possibly suffers a bit from the main characters’ immaturity

Rating: 6/10

- Adrian’s paranormal abilities make for an interesting physical reaction to sexual stimulation. I chuckled at some of his reactions, like this one: “His head swam with an excitement so intense he felt dizzy and sick. He hoped he didn’t ruin the moment by throwing up.”
- I read all of the Bay City Paranormal Investigations books years ago, and I remem...more

I love that Ally Blue gave Adrian a HEA (happy ever after). It gives me the feeling that the whole series is complete and whole. The characters were wonderful. Because of his relationship with Greg, Adrian was able to come to terms with his past and move on. He took his doubts about himself and used his personal strength to hold to what he knew he needed to do.
Ally Blue delivers again with a new installment to her Bay City Paranormal Investigations series! As a huge fan of her works, I'm likely rather biased in my estimation of her talent but it is rare to find those authors whose books you KNOW (even before cracking them open) that you're going to love no matter what. All of Ally Blue's books have been that way for me and Love Like Ghosts is no exception.

This is a sweet book. It is set 10 years after the 5th book and is really the start of a whole new series. Adrian, Bo's son is 21, its 2015 and his in college. The story itself is good. There is of course a paranormal mystery that is being solved by Adrian and Bo is also falling in love for the first time. I know to get him to 21, the book had to be set in a future and that in itself was slightly distracting. I know it's nit-picky but just calling his a generic name like a Toyota electric car or...more
I have loved the series, but only read the first two. I kinda skipped 3-6, mostly because I wanted to skip the drama and Bo and Sam seemed a bit full of drama.

I plan on going back, but this plot line just grabbed my attention.

Adrian is Bo's son, weird and bad mojo happened when he was 11 and now he can see ghosts and move things with his mind. 10 years later, he is finishing up college when he meets a ghost he wants to help and a guy he wants to.... Err date.

Drama ensues and it is a pretty good...more
The Bay City Series has an interesting change when the son, Adrian, becomes the main character and Sam and Bo take a backseat. For the most part this works very well with an engaging new couple and an interesting mystery. The writing is very classically Ally Blue and fans are likely to enjoy the new offering as much, if not more, than others in the series. The story has a few jarring moments since the timeline leaps ahead almost a decade yet this is not a futuristic theme. Additionally due to th...more
I have been wanting to read this book for a long time, but just recently purchased it.
Our main character Adrian Broussard, Dr. Bo Broussard's son, is all grown up.
At twenty-one he has come to terms and been through a lot, most of all starting when he was eleven and accidentally opened a portal to another dimension in his moms house.
Now we see him in collage, and intrigued with the ghost that haunts a chapel, having grown up with paranormal things being the normal he is determined to solve the...more
This book is related to Ally Blue's Bay City Paranormal Investigations series, but it can be read as a stand-alone.

Adrian, the son of Bo, is currently attending UNC-Chapel Hill. After a tumultuous adolescence, he has finally found control over his psychokinesis. This control has come with a price. Adrian is emotionally stunted. His fear of losing that control is keeping him from developing relationships. His brother Sean is constantly encouraging him to date, but his closest relationship is with...more
This was the story of Bo's son. But I think, this the best in the series. Love it.

I have not read the other BCP books but this is kind of a stand-alone. Set in the near future, Adrian (with psychic abilities) is a natural introvert who spends his time studying physics and keeping to himself and controlling his power. He meets Scotty while helping set up the haunted house on campus and they hit it off but Adrian is afraid to a) tell the truth about his abilities b) get involved with anyone because it usually ends badly. They eventually start dating and Adrian also discovers th...more
I always feel somewhat hesitant when writing a review of a 3 star book. They are normally books that I enjoy but feel went a little flat in parts. I like the continuation of the series with a look at Adrian. It is interesting to see his development from the child he was earlier in the series. It also provides an interesting look into his personality and his perception of it versus that of his brother. Greg is our other hero. His portrayal was a problem for me. The way he chose to deal, or should...more

Another BCPI book that can be read on its own. This one follows Adrian, Bo's son, ten years after the last book. He is in college now, and readers get to see how much he has changed over time. His love interest is Greg, a theater student. I loved this story because his parents, Sam and Bo, did make appearances. I was happy to see that he changed for the better. This book also steps away from the creatures of the original series and relies on ghost hunting and such. I would love to see more of th...more
Adrian gets his own story! I liked this boy since I read about him in the Book # 5. He is in college and is very well equipped to deal with his powers but what he is not well equipped do deal with is his attraction to Greg. Being with Greg makes him lose his control over the powers - it was actually a pretty interesting concept. The ghost's love story and its role in bringing them together was woven very nicely. I also liked the way the interaction between Sam, Bo, Adrian and Greg was presented....more

Another great addition to the BCP series. This one goes into the future, and Bo's son Adrien is all grown up and in college. It was fun to see all the characters from the BCP team after their HEA's, even though we only got a few glimpses of them in this book. I liked that Greg was a "non-believer". It added some great tension to the story. I felt so bad for ghost-Lyndon! I've never wanted to give a ghost a hug before, but I think he needed one. :D
I was expecting a bit more from Adrien's story but what I got was still a fun read. It was interesting to learn about who was behind Lyndon's death. The chemistry between Adrien and Greg was okay, there was nothing there between them that made them stand out to me and make me take notice. I liked the little tidbits about Adrien's family and how Bo and Sam's relationship turned out.
I had given up on this series but I had already bought all of the books in the series so I kind of made myself read this one because it was just sitting there in my library for so long. I'm glad I did. The characters and story line was great. The character of Sam Raintree just put me off the series so I'm glad that the last two books involved different characters.
Very good m/m romance that takes place ten years after the events in An Inner Darkness. Bo and Sam’s son Adrian is at college, but remains distanced from those around him as he works to control his telekinesis. I actually got a little sniffly while reading this one.

If you like homo-erotic male fiction with a little supernatural twist thrown in, the BCPI series is great. Some really graphic scenes in both supernatural events & male-on-male encounters. I'd have preferred more events & fewer encounters ... but that's just me.

I can always rely on good old Ally. I love her stuff, and this was no disappointment. Don't have much to say about this one, other than read it now! Oh, and if you were hoping for a glimpse into the future of Bo and Sam, you won't be disappointed.
I thought her other books were amazing, but this one takes the cake. I love Adrian's self-conflicting nature and the intensity of his emotions. You really get a look into everything he's going through and its heartwrenching
Definitely not my favorite in the series. Adrian spent a lot of time in his head thinking things to death. It was a bit dull in parts.
Loved it. It not as technical or danger-wrought as the usual BCPI books but decidedly a delight!
Ally Blue is fabulous
Mystery. Ghosts. Sex. Romance. Bit of angst, and a LOVELY ending. What more could I even ask for?
HATED Greg. Liked reading about Adrian, but man...hated Greg...
This book was pretty good. It definitely was not my favorite though.
Fernanda Parente
for me it was the best book of BCPI ....amazing...loved it
OoohMyGosh, is this the last one....I wish it wasn't. :-((

She has a great big suggestively-shaped hat and rides in a bullet-proof Plexiglas bubble in Christmas parades. Her harem of manwhores does double duty as bodyguards and inspirational entertainment. Her favorite band is Radiohead, her favorite color is lime green and her...more

“It was loud. It was crowded. I hate crowds. I had to make small talk with a bunch of people I don’t know, and I’m terrible at that. And some guy I’d just met wanted to do perverted things to me with noodles.”
