They see death. Can they share a life?

Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets. Then she meets Deacon Walker. She can see his ice-blue eyes, his black hair, and his gorgeous face. But this beautiful stranger has no aura.

Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by anything. As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature, she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t afford.

A demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness in his own past even as he fights to save the human souls he’s charged to protect. When he’s taken captive, his first concern is for Ruth. But Ruth just might be able to save herself—and the Reaper she can’t live without—if she can learn to wield her newfound powers.

My Review

Reap & Repent (The Reapers, #1)Reap & Repent by Lisa Medley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a fun new story! It's definitely clearing a path for a great series. This one is about Ruth and the discovery of who she is and Deacon learning how to relive again. And the world of reapers and angels and demons.

Ruth lost her dad at a young age. Her and her mother didn't see eye to eye. But now she lost everything. And on top of that she's always seen a light surrounding people. Their auras. But she knows when someone's mad, sad, dying. Yeah. She when her mother dies and she runs literally into deacon, it all opens the flood gates. Ruth is a witty, kind, courageous. She really has had a rough time with a lot of crap thrown at her for a quick period of time.

Deacon can't let things go. He's got guilt and anger from long before. So when Ruth knocks into him, she has no aura and she can see him. Really see him. And he follows her and scared the crap out of her then releases a bomb that she's an untrained reaper.

The plot is so intriguing. The mystery and suspense kept me glued to the pages. I loved the demon twist of possession. I loved Grim. And Kylen and Nate are fantastic characters that added so much to this story!

The writing is fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed this story! I'm so glad I picked it up and I can honestly say I will be picking up book two!! This is a fantastic paranormal romance with some fascinating twists on reapers and their ways. 5 PAWS!!

Book Description:

He’s a reaper who has given up on saving souls. Will a dying woman be his salvation?

After a century of enslavement to pure evil, Kylen Larson is finally free. But he’s long past caring. The only woman he ever loved is dead, and he’s tormented by memories of the horrors his demon parasite forced him to commit. Now, he lives for nothing more than hunting down the infernal creatures invading Meridian, Arkansas, and destroying them.

Olivia Evans is in the final stages of cancer when Kylen accidentally saves her from demonic possession. When he rescues this innocent soul, Kylen rediscovers his mission—and his heart. All he wants is to help Olivia stay alive. He’ll just have to fight off an invasion from Hell first…

My Review

I loved this one as much or more than the first book. I loved Kylen in the first book. I KNEW something was gunna go down, but I was not expecting to fall in love with him more than Deacon. It's of course that bad boy that's broken thing... We all want to drool on them and then fix them. LOL And Kylen is broken, badly. He is coming back from being possessed by a demon for the last century. And he did it willingly. To save the one he loved. And boy does that basically warp his brain LOL or I should say his heart, but I can't because we all know he had one. He wouldn't have ended up where he is now without that heart. And I loved that FINALLY him and Deacon are ok. And even Nate is good with things, and that's because Nate is gunna have his own crazy drama by the next book, but I'm getting ahead of myself. 

So, Kylen saves Olivia from sure death and torture. He however does not expect to continue saving her life, in ways he can't explain. And the sharing of energy is causing a bond between them. And then he can't seem to let go, but he won't get close either. He's a reaper, but not really, not with all the demon left overs stuck in him. And Olivia is everything good. He knows she needs to stay away from him with her life literally dwindling away, but he can't help himself. And Ruth is all about making sure he is there for her, because Ruth wants to find a way to help Kylen as well. She knows he's worth saving. And then there's Olivia. She is dying, like right now. And so her last days are spent basically up-heaving everything she has ever known. Human are not alone, and cats are not always kitties. LOL this is my favorite part LOL. It's funny with her and the "cats". And she is exactly what Kylen needed to not only fix himself, hell, she calls him on his bullshit, but to heal as well. And in turn, he gives her everything she asked for in her dying wishes. I seriously cried with that damn list. I think my heart both broke and burst of happiness in that moment. Sorry can't tell you :) 

Now with everything going on, there's a serious war being played between heaven and hell. A fallen angel is working with Lucifer to bring hell to earth, and then to take down heaven. And the earth and it's human are caught directly in the cannon fodder area. Humans and their souls are going down left and right. There's some good gory parts in here and some excellent action scenes. But I won't lie, there's a really really steamy romance scene as well. And a little twist for Ruth and Deacon so you won't forget about them, and a totally fuzzy and unexpected surprise for Nate. I believe Bo is my new favorite character in this series LOL And we also get to meet some excellent new Reapers. And another twist with Grim, and Rashnu, who made me cheer. Yeah, it's a great moment for Kylen and Olivia but it's a downward spiral for Nate and a really surprising twist on the bad guys and how evil they can be. So, if you can't tell, I love this series and I totally think if you are looking for a great paranormal romance, or a wonderful new twist on Reapers, or just some great writing, I say go for this one! And make sure you read the first book otherwise you might be looking at some things a little weirdly. LOL though you really would be able to pick up this one and jump right end, knowing that there's something from before, but not be lost as a dude who won't stop for directions *giggle* So, 5 REAPER PAWS!!

Book Description:

By day he saves lives in the city he loves. Can he save souls too?

Nate is an EMT, a witch and a newly inducted member of the Reaper Authority Force. What he's not is a reaper. With unexplained abilities, his true nature lies somewhere in between the angels, demons and reapers he finds himself involved with. When he's paired with the reaper Maeve, he struggles to find his place in the rising war to save the souls of Meridian and the world.

Maeve has tried to hide her reaper handicap--her toxic reaper energy--from her colleagues. But when she's possessed by a fallen angel and forced to poach souls for Hell, her greatest weakness might be the only thing that saves her.

Nate uses his growing powers and his innate magic to find Maeve. He'll do whatever it takes to save her, revealing more than he ever imagined in the process.
