Book Description:
You reap what you sow...

Saying Nate Grimm has a dark past is an understatement. Fortunately, no one's bothered to look too closely at the Fairytale Management Authority's lead detective and part-time Reaper. And that's the way Nate wants to keep it. For after centuries of torment and loneliness, he's finally found happiness with the hot and hard-charging love of his life, Tess "Red" Little. 

Of course, his love for Tess is the reason there's a posse of Reaper judges after him, led by a sadistic bastard acquainted with Nate from once upon a time. Now, Tess will pay the price for Nate's transgressions unless Nate severs his ties to the transplanted Tales--and Tess--forever. His enemy has the advantage in speed, malice and brutality. But the Reapers have underestimated the depth of Nate's love and devotion. And the fury of his wrath. . .







After meeting Nate in the first book there was no way in heck I was going to pass by the chance to read more about him and hopefully learn more about his past. I fell in love with his character and was fascinated by him. I needed more and oh boy did I get more. I think I very well might be more in love with him now than I was in Red. In fact, move over Red, you have competition.

On a more serious note, this gave me everything I was missing in Red and then some. It answered so many questions, gave me so much more Nate and Red time and really focused on other characters as well, characters I can't wait to learn more about in the next installments. And even though I am sad book two won't be about Nate and Red, I am really hoping we still get glimpses of them because I love them as a couple.  

I can see now why this series is getting such great reviews and I for one, want more and will be continuing on with it. It is amazing how much one novella can really add to a storyline and make you fall in love with a series.

  5. I love novellas especially ones that focus on certain characters. Shatter Me had a wonderful one about the character everyone thought they hated, but the novella changed minds.
    I've yet to read the book that inspired this, but the cover has me intrigued.

  6. Well, heck ... A lot of people do seem to love these. I guess I should probably make Red more of a priority.
