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.
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.
