Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by...more

Reap and Repent is the first book in the Reaper Series. It is an urban fantasy series about reapers and about a new mysterious untrained reaper. I love the concept of the book, and I think the rest of the series has potential, but the first book was a little bumpy for me. I still liked it, but I didn't love it as much as I initially hoped that I would. I read another book (I can't remember the name) about a girl that ...more
This book did a great job of story development right from the beginning. Right from the first three pages we w ...more
** I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I decided I wanted to review this novel because I was intrigued by the concept of reapers, and I have always been pretty interested in books about them. I remember there was a TV show called Reaper back in the day that I followed just because the idea fascinated me so much. I also read and enjoyed Amber Ben ...more
HOLY! Now that was a HOT story! *snicker* I thoroughly enjoyed this book and absolutely cannot wait for more! Even though this story starts off sad and blue, I was very quickly drawn into it. While I can’t say that I can relate to Ruth or her situations, or to Deacon or Nate or, well any one or their stories, it is a very “real” story. By this I mean that there are enough normal or regular life stuff happening to give this story an ...more
Ruth has essentially shut herself off from getting close to anyone after realizing she has an unwanted ‘gift.’ She can tell what mood a person is in and if they’re close to death by seeing their auras. After a few failed attempts at dating and the devastation of realizing her father’s white aura meant death, she’s had enough.
When Dea ...more

Not sure what to say....I was 10% into the book and all I kept thinking was bloody hell book move on already. Ruth's inner monologue is like a drone. The book is in both Ruth and Deacon's POV which I liked. However, Ruth's inner monologue is tiresome. There was really no personality to her. Maybe, things change eventually I don't know. However, it was hard to keep on going for me. I hate books where the inner monologues make the majority of the book. I do like dialogue exchanges bet ...more
How stinking amazing would it be, if you were different and alienated all your life just to find out that you are this awesome amazing being?? I want to meet Deacon Walker... it's so not fair! LOL
This is an amazing and creative book!
Ruth sees auras and because of that, she doesn't have a lot of social interaction that isn't negative. Deacon is a reaper and he has no aura- they are drawn together because as it turns out.... so ...more

Book 1, Reap and Repent, introduces us to Deacon and Ruth. They each have their secrets and their own battles to deal with, but when they meet one another things start to click. As you might expect, there are certainly rules about Reaper/mortal entanglements, but ...more
I strongly recommend REAP & REPENT to all paranormal/urban fantasy lovers who are looking for something fun, action packed, that's full of s ...more
I enjoyed Reap & Repent because it felt real even while delving into the fantastic... and the desire-filled relationship at the center of it all made me sigh! ...more
The action in this book is non stop, reapers, angels, lost souls and demons abound. Definitely a different take on the "Grim Reaper" theory. Some tastefully written sex scenes and I enjoyed the other side characters too. A must read for paranormal lovers ...more
Just perfect. Deacon and Ruth make a wonderful couple. Both of them are reapers but she didn't know she was one. Until on night Deacon appears on her home. I love stories about reapers and this one didn't disappoint me. It's a must read.
Though I kinda wish they had that hard conversation. The story was really cute and I enjoyed it. The book was worth the try and I would recommend it, but I think I am not going to continue on. I don't have a real close connection with any of the characters and I am not too interested in where they are going in life. By not reading the series I will leave the few unanswered questions lingering ...more
