Synopsis:

On the fifth anniversary of my murder, I set out to find what I wanted the most—revenge. Others warned me that the whole project could be risky, but getting even with my killer husband seemed worth the danger. Turned out, I made an appointment with the Angel of Death. Perfect.

I’ve always had a weak spot for bad-boy, rocker types but Gabriel surpassed my fantasies. He looked like Bon Jovi in his long hair days, which destroyed my ability to concentrate. Plus, he claimed he could help me only if I trusted him. The last man I put my faith in shot a bullet through my heart. How the heck could I trust the Angel of Death?

So anyway, I told Gabriel that I needed retribution before I could move on. He granted me three days in a mortal body to gain closure. Great offer except for one thing—my dear husband had already been found not guilty so he couldn’t be tried again. No hope of ever putting him behind bars…at least not for shooting me. I also had no idea where the loser had dumped my body. How was I supposed to get vengeance?

After that, things got really complicated. I had to find dirt on my jerk of a husband while placing my faith in the Angel of Death and ignoring the forbidden things he did to my phantom heart and loaner body. Yeah, the whole situation sounded weird to me, too, but what was a misplaced spirit to do except roll with it?

 

Review:

When I first started reading Share Our Souls I thought it was a much longer story and was disappointed it had been languishing on my kindle for so long. It is an easy, sexy read and a great opener for the series as it leaves the reader wanting more.

 

Olivia is a cool character that responds to the Angel of Death the only way possible when he looks the way he does. Yes, that's rather shallow, but this is supernatural romance after all! The story develops well and minor characters add to to the layers nicely.

 

I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
