Love might need a little push…or a good, swift kick.

Tori Chambers. Old biddy, gossip, busybody and meddler. Except in reality she’s none of those things—she’s a guardian angel who specializes in helping people find their soul mates. Her latest assignment has had her tearing her hair out for over a year. She’s holding up her end for the fireman who’s her current client, but his soul mate’s guardian angel is dropping the ball big time. And when a replacement steps in, it’s enough to curl what’s left of Tori’s hair.

Jericho. The one man who broke her heart—and made her determined to never fail her clients like her own guardian angel failed her.

A hundred years ago, while fighting for Texas independence, Jericho made a mistake that accidentally cost her life. Now that she’s forced to make nice and work with him, he’s determined not to lose her again. Even if he has to tie her to the bed and make love to her until she’s willing to see reason.

Because unknown to Tori, she is his assignment. And if he can’t find a way to convince her they’re soul mates, they face an eternity of consequences…

Warning: Two humans-turned-angels doing very wicked, non-angelic things to each other. Tied to the bed, bent over the table, up against the wall, and plenty of front and backdoor action is enjoyed by all!

Jericho, the homeless prophet from book one is back. And he's a flaming homo! Well, he's put on the glamour of one. Perfect fit to Tori's disguise as a wrinkly, senior citizen, right? And hey, she was in the first book, too. I was seriously getting a sense of paranoia there.

The worst part of reading a series, especially one book right after another, is when the similarities are glaringly obvious as it was with this one. Even when it's a good thing, it's bad. The sex was hot but way too familiar.

Jericho’s deep rumble reverberated in her ear, the tone silky, dangerous. “Deny it all you want, darlin’, but we belong to each other. You belong to me.” His hot breath washed over her skin, making goose flesh break down her limbs. His thrusts became wilder, fiercer. “I don’t have to talk about the past for you to know you’re mine, Tori. Mine. You always have been, you always will be. You’ll never be free of me, you’ll never get the feel of me off your skin, the taste of me out of your mouth. You. Are. Mine. My soul mate. Just plain old fucking mine.”

“I hate you!”

He laughed at her, bit the back of her shoulder, licked the stinging flesh until she panted. “No, you don’t. You only wish you could.”

Believe In Me held a much more oppressive, thicker feel to it than it's predecessor. Spanning two lifetimes, where the actions of the protagonists led to their deaths in the first, there's a lot to handle. However the one difference between this book and If You Believe is that the author does not share the first person POV in this installment. Only Tori's side of the story is heard. And I so wanted Jericho's version.

Yet again, Crystal Jordan has impressed me with her talent for a weaving a passionate story, giving just enough to leave me begging for more. 4 out of 5 stars.

Note to first time visitors: I have nothing against homosexuals. No comment on senior citizens.
