    HA This quote from the book sums itself up perfectly It is kind of sappy, the entire situation is right out of a romance novel a very, very weird romance novel, but it s also delightfully awkwardly charming At 20, college student Emery has had magic for as long as he can remember, but never realized just how powerful his Superpowers were, until he woke up in the morgue After being dead Well, mostly dead, I suppose John not his real name was a newly minted Reaper, who reme HA This quote from the book sums itself up perfectly It is kind of sappy, the entire situation is right out of a romance novel a very, very weird romance novel, but it s also delightfully awkwardly charming At 20, college student Emery has had magic for as long as he can remember, but never realized just how powerful his Superpowers were, until he woke up in the morgue After being dead Well, mostly dead, I suppose John not his real name was a newly minted Reaper, who remembered nothing about his former life on Earth Until he innocently touched a beautiful guy in the middle of the street, inadvertently unlocking some of his old, pre Angel memories But something went wrong, and John s unintentional touch turned into The Touch Yes, the poof, you re dead one Then, one speeding bus later and the beautiful guy was headed to the morgue in a body bag.This was SUCH a fun story From the moment that Emery woke up , after his temporary death, there was one funny situation, internal thought, or quip after another Yes, the low key humor lasted for the entire book, which I loved.I also loved Emery s self deprecating sense of humor, which felt sort of like an alternate universe Sam of Wilds from TJ Klune s Tales of Verania series , just with the OTT ness turned way down.I absolutely adored every single side character in the story, too From Emery s overly snarky sister, to his overly protective momma bear mother, to his overly sensitive father, they were all equally awesome.And homeless, would be fashion critic Crazy Helen OMMFG, how she kept calling Emery women s names, like Nancy, Belinda and Penelope, while he was freaking out over his not deadness and supposed evil destiny, I was goddamn dying laughing This story was definitely a farce, just like the author described it in the forward note, not taking itself too seriously So while I don t see it curing cancer, I almost guarantee that it ll make you laugh if you leave your preconceptions at the door and just roll with it.I adored the somewhat sappy ending, complete with magical violins and candles, which I d call an HFN, but since both MC s were view spoiler immortal hide spoiler and perfect together, the romantic in me is going to go out on a limb and upgrade that to a hopeful HEA.I only had two niggles about the story First, the story felt complete, but at only 60 pages, I would ve killed for it to be full novel length Said the greedy book whore.Second, the story was told in present tense Which I LOATHE I found the tense completely distracting, to the point of constantly pulling me out of the story So yeah, I would ve changed that shit in a hot damn minute.Other than that, I d rate this short, humorous story at around 4.25 stars and recommend it to fans of funny stories that aren t trying to bethan pure entertainment and contribute to a few well earned laugh lines on readers faces My ARC copy of the book was provided by the publisher in exchange for a fair, unbiased review.See All My Latest Reads Review Quick Links
