He’s a reaper who works by the book. But a sexy shifter will have him changing the course of fate just to be with her—if a killer doesn’t get to her first...
After four years as a reaper, helping souls cross into the afterlife is a job Adam Javorski has finally gotten used to. But when he arrives at the site of a serial killer’s latest victim, finding a living—not to mention gorgeous—hostage is the last thing he expects. The young woman captivates him in a way no one ever has—so much so, he breaks rule number one by helping her escape…
Marlena Walther doesn’t remember the man who rescued her. But when she sees Adam again, she recognizes him instantly as her soul mate. While the two work together to track down a killer determined to finish what he started, their undeniable attraction draws them even closer. Now Adam is the only one who can protect Marlena from a vengeful murderer—if he’s willing to sacrifice everything for her.
Grave Attraction is the fourth book in the Grave series by Lori Sjoberg. The Grave series is an adult paranormal romance series, and this is the first book that I have had the pleasure of reading. I find the idea of reapers fascinating, and if you have read many of my other paranormal and urban fantasy reviews, you know that I love it when lots of magical creatures come out to play together in one world. And that is exactly what is going on in Grave Attraction. Witches, and shifters and reapers…oh my! (sorry, I couldn’t help it.)
In Grave Attraction we meet Adam, a new reaper and Marlena, a shifter. Adam rescues Marlena from a serial killer that is more than he appears to be. The rest of the story spirals from there as the group of reapers team up with some witches to solve two sub mysteries. I loved the mix of paranormal creatures and I love the side story line that Marlena introduced for how she is connected to Adam. I thought that was a great addition to the story and one that I have not seen done in quite this way. Their romance was the highlight of the story for me.
Whether you are an old fan to this series, or completely new to it like I was, I think you will enjoy Grave Attraction. The characters are great, the plot is riveting, and I had a particularly good time reading this book because I know the setting so well. (Grave Attraction is set in Orlando, FL) I loved pointing out the sights and the restaurants that I have eaten at. (and yes, Lori- that is the best Polish restaurant!) I also really enjoyed the mystery of who was tamping down death’s powers. I thought it was a fun, scavenger hunt meets detective style journey. I feel like this series would make a great tv show.
Bottom line: if you are a paranormal romance junkie, this is a must read series. Whether you start with book1, 2, 3, or 4 doesn’t matter. They each stand alone, but do start this series. I really enjoyed it and I need to go get the other books ASAP.Reapers and witches and shifters...oh my! @BookBriefs reviews Grave Attraction by @Lori_Sjoberg @lyricalpress Click To Tweet
