Synopsis: I’m Tyler Lindsey, and until recently, I had an okay apartment, an okay girlfriend, and an okay job as a bellboy at a respectable Boston hotel. Then rock star Chris Raiden died right before I brought his room service—stiffing me on the tip, by the way—and my life went to hell. My fifteen minutes of fame was more like five seconds, and my girlfriend left me in disgust.
But even worse—Chris is haunting me. Not the room where he died, like a normal ghost. No, somehow he’s stuck to me and is insisting on taking care of a bunch of unfinished business in California. So now I have to traipse across the country with the world’s most narcissistic ghost.
But . . . I keep having these weird thoughts. Thoughts about how much I like the way he makes me laugh. Thoughts where I kind of want to kiss the emo-narcissist, even though he’s a ghost and an asshole and I can’t touch him anyway. And even if I could, what will happen when he finishes his business and nothing’s keeping him here anymore?
Impressions: This book’s blurb was really intriguing to me, and I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for review. I could not put it down, and I was so excited at the end of the day when I could jump back into Tyler and Chris’ story.
I periodically like paranormals, but I wasn’t sure if this one could get to an HEA where I would feel like these guys could have the future I would hope for them, but Sattersby never let me down! I was so pleasantly surprised!
The ghost element was really cute here, but what made this book so amazing and fun was the adorable banter between Chris and Tyler, and the slow blossom from slightly irritating to inseparable. Ghosts, drugs, and unresolved pasts aside, this was simply a great romance and Tyler and Chris pulled me into their love story very quickly.
This was a very different and special love story, and it had me smiling and eagerly curling up until I could figure out how Tyler and Chris could make all of their hopes come true.
