It just figures that the love of Lindsey Water's life isn't alive at all, but the grim reaper, complete with a dimpled smile and Scottish accent.
After transporting souls to heaven for the last 300 years, Aiden MacRae has all but given up on finding the one whose love will redeem him and allow him entry through the pearly gates.
Torn between her growing attraction to Aiden and heaven's siren song, Lindsey must learn the hard way whether love really can transcend all boundaries.
I hadn’t read much about this book, so I didn’t really know what to expect. I wasn’t really disappointed, but neither was I really surprised.
The biggest problem I had with the story was really the love and how fast it developed between Lindsey and Aiden. I’m not a big believer when it comes to love at first sight. It’s just that it was too fast, especially since Aiden is supposed to come from a century where it was all about courtship and all that stuff. The story may be really cute, a nice love story, but I wished the love aspect could have taken a little longer to blossom. The story itself was good, and the ending simply beautiful. I enjoyed it, and I’m curious to know what will happen next.
The characters were nice, but I couldn’t really relate to them because of the religion factor. It is a thing I have a little problem with right now. I don’t particularly enjoy books that put too much emphasis on religion, simply because I believe it is something really personal. I don’t really can put myself in her shoes; because I don’t share the same believe as her. That kind of annoyed me a little. Yet, I really liked Aiden, I just wish we could have seen a little more of the gentlemen side. After all, he gave me the impression of really being one, so I would have liked to see him court Lindsey instead of doing everything really fast.
I liked Cyndi Tefft writing. I think it was beautifully written, and I’m interested in reading more from her.
I enjoy the story, but I can’t say I’m completely in love with it. I would give it a 3/5.
Last thing, I would recommend this book to a more mature audience of YA lover, because there is a little more than just romance sometime.
