My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Holy cliffhanger paranormal fans!
Totally expected as this is a series with an ongoing story arc, but even so, the twisty in the tale here came as a surprise and I loved it.
Just like I loved seeing Skye get his man as Daniel realised that the reason he’d always been drawn to him was more than just friendship.
This is a generally low angst – demonic threats aside – romance in which the guy who’s been in love with his ‘straight’ friend gets the best kind of surprise when it turns out he’s actually crushing on him too.
With the same humorous element that’s been present throughout this series so far, we get a plot that develops more about Skye’s ability to interact with spirits from the otherworld and that sees him facing his past when his mother returned to town after deserting him when he was only seven.
When he and Skye end up in a fake boyfriend situation after Skye’s mother confronts him and pairs scorn on his small town life, it doesn’t take him long to discover he likes the thought of being able to kiss Skye.
Surprisingly, we don’t actually get much on page exploration but there is a super hot frotting scene before Skye plucks up the courage to ask Daniel of he’s just an experiment.
Skye and Daniel are incredibly sweet together, I loved how Daniel was so chill about realising he was bisexual and had been attracted to men before without really understanding his feeling.
By the time we reach the end of this book, there’s been all kinds of excitement, not least the discovery of a demon plot with the potential to end the world!
Roll on June for the final book, which will be The Collective’s Gatekeeper Gabe and Skye’s best friend Tom, whose ghostly Nonna haunts his taxi cab passing judgement on everything!
I can’t wait for it.
