Publisher's Summary

Reaping souls for over two centuries can be such a bore.

Breaking every rule in the Heavenly guidebook, reaper Stasia Tien has been secretly moonlighting as a seasonal catering chef in the quirky town of Nocturne Falls. She’s managed to balance her double life for the past decade or two, but as Valentine’s Day approaches, her sous chef and reaper colleague is unexpectedly called away weeks before the elaborate charity dinner for which Stasia’s responsible.

Forced to find a last-minute replacement, she has no choice except to collect a debt from handsome celebrity chef du jour, Balthazar Dash. Years ago, Stasia saved Zar, and although she's responsible for guiding souls into the afterlife, this is one rogue soul she’d rather keep all for herself....

Chef Zar owes Stasia his life - literally. Living on a second chance, he’s long forgotten a bargain made during a moment of desperation until the mysterious reaper pops into his busy restaurant. He’s been living the American dream with several hit shows under his belt. But Zar is ready to take a step back to better care for his young daughter. 

Exiting his current lifestyle won’t be easy, but perhaps the gorgeous diversion Stasia provides is exactly what he needs to get back into Heaven’s good graces....

Disjointed

The narrator did a great job, but couldn’t save this disjointed story. I generally have enjoyed the different writing styles of the authors in the Nocturne Universe, but the characters of this tale were not well developed & the storyline did not make much sense.

Loved it

Jax Cassidy has written an excellent installment in the Nocturne Falls Universe series. Her characters are well developed and quickly become part of your circle of friends. I have enjoyed this installment more than others that have come along. I highly recommend this book/audiobook to paranormal fantasy lovers.
