A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars


This story is told in first person from Taz’s perspective, which I think is an interesting choice given the two men seemed to share equally in their decision to sacrifice themselves originally, as well as equally sharing the burden of being reborn in the mortal plane/serving as Guardian. The packaging of the relationship between Taz and Hiro was somewhat ambiguous. Given that we first encounter them after they have died (with a brief summary of how they perished),

What I Think: I couldn’t wait to start reading this because this Authoress had me hooked with Healing Glass which had been out of this world (pun intended). And you know what? It doesn’t disappoint. It’s a love story that spans through the ages set in a fantasy realm and it picks up in an unlikely fashion, starting from death. Her tagline is so apt for this as the ending was truly the beginning. Using gorgeous, vivid imagery which is a tool this Authoress perfects with each release, we get to kn ...more

*I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review*

Repeat Offence is a short story telling the after-lives of soldiers Hiro and Taz. After giving their lives in battle to save others they are condemned to an eternal cycle of watching each other live and die unless they can touch at the precise moment of the other’s passing.

I really liked the premise of this story. A very unique and clever idea, the punishment was not only designed as such but meant to test the bond

There is a lot of plot and world building packed into this short story about two people sticking to their convictions, and their love for each other. I thought the story was very powerful, and character driven. I had a very strong sense of character as I was reading, and I loved the world building, which was very original.

I enjoyed reading how their world changed with the passing of time, and how it was portrayed through each new life, and loved the idea of an afterlife where guardians watch hu

There is a saying that no good deed goes unpunished. That's especially true for Hiro and Taz who have sacrificed themselves in battle to save countless other lives.
Their choice was severely punished by the Judge who deemed them squandering their gift of life regardless of their choice to save others and made them live eternally on the different sides of the veil, as a human and the guardian, until they can meet each other at the point of one dying as human and another meeting him at that precis

This novella by Jackie Keswick was as wonderfully written as her other novels.
It made you ache for Taz and Hiro as they spent centuries separated from each other, all because of one mistake.

She feeds you bits and pieces of Taz’s life with Hiro as his Guardian. You hope eventually that they are forgiven and then given a chance at love.
The writing is poetic and keeps you entranced.
She gives you enough of a taste for the world they live in and the progress of time. But you still focus on their

Repeat Offence by Jackie Keswick is a short but beautiful story. It pulls at the emotions and keeps you glued to the pages. Taz and Hiro are interesting characters and I enjoyed the journey this story took me on. A very satisfying read.

I received an advanced reader's copy of the book and I am voluntarily leaving my honest review and recommendation.

To say that Taz and Hiro got the short end of the stick is an understatement. They sacrificed their lives to save others and their reward was to be separated, I was seriously pissed on their behalf. Even though it's short it still felt complete, all in all an engaging, emotional read.

Short but complete. I love Jackie Keswick's writing and she's created a wonderful world, with characters I love. Their story is beautiful. The blurb is accurate and the book is even better.
