Book Description

She’s sexy-fierce, resourceful—and will do anything to protect victims as innocent as she once was. But this kick-ass reaper never bargained on meeting her not-quite-human match…or putting their very souls on the line.

A luxury Caribbean cruise is Ruby Dawson’s idea of hell even under the best circumstances. Too many bad memories bubble up—especially of the wrenching injustice that made her a reaper. It doesn’t help that Jack Deverell is making this routine soul-collecting job twice as difficult with his devilish good looks and not-so-innocent questions. Now, as several unscheduled, unexplainable deaths throw passengers and crew into a panic, Jack becomes the prime suspect. The only way Ruby can save him is to challenge the decades-old curse threatening his soul. And as a malevolent unstoppable force turns their immortality into a fatal weakness, Ruby and Jack must risk their fragile humanity to save Fate’s delicate balance and their own unexpected destiny…

“A highly enjoyable, intelligently written story.” —New York Journal of Books on Grave Intentions

5.0 out of 5 stars This Series Has Been 5 Star Since The Start January 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ruby is a Reaper and made a bit of an appearance in book 1 of the series Grave Intentions (The Grave Series) and this one will keep you on your toes.

This is a romance at heart but spends most of its time as a murder mystery interspersed with a bit of humor all of which makes this a great reading experience.

Jack has been cursed and Ruby is a Reaper, neither of them are looking for a relationship because they both think they really have nothing to offer to a long term relationship. They are wrong of course and the main story along with the background info on both of them makes this a great novel. I read it almost constantly in one day since there was not a good place to stop reading for more than a few minutes.

Bottom Line: Great mystery you don't solve until the author does it, great romance that the two main characters keep trying to deny, add in a real surprise or two and you have a really good time for any reader. While it is not required I would suggest reading book 1 first since you can't really appreciate Samuel without it. 4.5 Stars rounded to 5

3.0 out of 5 stars Death Goes for a Pleasure Cruise July 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Ruby Dawson is death personified--well, she is a grim reaper who is on probation. Fate has given Ruby the chance to delay judgment of her soul and redeem herself by working as a reaper. The last place she wants to be is on a boat, but that is exactly where she finds herself when she is given an assignment on a luxury Caribbean cruise. She is distracted by Jack Deverell who seems to see right through her charm to the woman she is inside. When several unscheduled, unexplained deaths happen Fate wants to know who and Ruby needs to find the culprit. Unfortunately, Jack is the prime suspect.

My biggest complaint about this story is how much sex was in the story--it wasn't balanced out with the rest of the story. I felt like the whole book was just about sex with a side of story. This happens because of Jack's nature--being bound to a demon who feeds on sexual energy. But it felt like it was sex, sex, sex the entire book. It was too much.

I don't feel like we were along for the ride to help solve the mystery of who and why all these murders were happening. The way they "investigated" was to go to clubs and "feel the energy" around them. So there was a LOT of them sitting there watching people getting freaky on the dance floor waiting for that "feeling." It was boring.

I was very disappointed because the first in this series was stellar. This one just fell flat for me. I did enjoy getting to know Ruby and finding out why she was condemned to be a Reaper. I felt like Jack and Ruby were a good match for each other, but I got sick of all the sex. It was took over the book drowning out the actual story.

Would I recommend this story? Meh
Would I read it again? No
Would I read this author again? Yes

5.0 out of 5 stars Grave destations January 12, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
This reminded me a little of the show dead like me but this is so so so much, much h better, this shows what purgatory must really feel like, all the readers are doing orders as they should do but along the way they regain their humanity a little more as the book goes on Ruby. Helps the extra souls with compassion she doesn't, realize the the new boss the Russian killer reaper shows a little protective towards Rubys news lover daemon, and that this guy will always have her back, I would love to see how Rubys sister and family story happened after she went missing, and if that sheriff gets his commendable perhaps Ruby,s daemon love can do some gentle digging so if Ruby can
, not know as a reaper, I want to know if Ruby gets justice even if she cannot know. I FELL IN LOVE with the first book, really got obsessed with the second book I am dying bad pun for the next book to come out. If I was in better off financially I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO BUY THE WHOLE SERIES but this will remain in my library section for a long long time

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read January 4, 2015
By Ginny
Format:Kindle Edition
Jack and Ruby meet on a cruise ship and find they are attracted to one another. Great, but they have a few issues...Ruby is one of the Reapers (as in Grim) and Jack has a demon attached to his soul. Ruby is on assignment because one of the passengers is scheduled to die and Jack is trying to figure out how to get rid of his demon. Then an unscheduled death occurs and Ruby, Jack and Ruby 's boss, Dmitri, have to figure out what caused it. Ruby and Dmitri suspect Jack's demon at first, but discover there is ANOTHER demon on board. An all around fun romp, and I hope there will be another book is the series SOON!

5.0 out of 5 stars Never judge a book by its cover has never been truer January 31, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is not Beach Blanket Bingo Revisited ! At last, here is the second book in Ms. Sjoberg’s Grave Series and it does not disappoint. She is a master at world building, and with a solid story, fantastically appealing characters, a strong hero, Ruby (a woman, who kicks serious butt, and that’s why I don’t get the surfer dude on the cover !While there are two very appealing male protagonists, it’s a paranormal romance where our hero, Ruby, a woman who kicks serious butt, and the action takes place on a cruiser.). You’re in for an action-packed ride, and a fresh, exciting take on paranormal romance. At some point, a character tells another they know what they are, and I got chills ! This is a must read, along with her first book. She is a new star in the paranormal romance world. Don't miss it !

More About the Author

Lori Sjoberg is the award winning author of the GRAVE SERIES. She lives in Florida with her husband and four-legged fur baby.

Growing up the youngest of three girls, Lori never had control of the remote. (Not that she's bitter about that. Really. Okay, maybe a little, but it's not like she's scarred for life or anything.) That meant a steady diet of science fiction and fantasy. Star Trek, Star Wars, Twilight Zone, Outer Limits - you name it, she watched it. It fed her imagination, and that came in handy when the hormones kicked in and she needed a creative excuse for being out past curfew.

After completing her first novel, she joined the Romance Writers of America and Central Florida Romance Writers. Now she exercises the analytical half of her brain at her day job, and the creative half writing sensual paranormal romance. Grim reapers are her specialty, but she loves to write about all creatures of the night.
