My Rating: FIVE DIVINELY ENTERTAINING STARS*****
Heaven can't wait and neither can I.... to read more by Tara West! OH MY GLORY! What a divinely entertaining read! Divine and Dateless is the first release in the Eternally Yours Series by Tara West and it totally rocked my world! I loved it! This is my first time reading Tara West but I can say with utmost certainty, it won't be my last! West's unique style, vivid imagination and highly addictive prose hooked me right out of the gate. By the time I hit page three, I knew I'd struck gold with the Eternally Yours Series. I immediately raced back to Amazon to see if there were other books in the series. And JACKPOT - I discovered three more books! And the icing on the cake.... at the time of this review, they were all available under the Kindle Unlimited program. SWEET!
But I digress, let's talk about this book. Divine and Dateless is a well crafted, well edited, wonderfully imaginative, fast-paced, full-length standalone supernatural tale filled to the brim with spellbinding fantasy, laugh-out-loud humor, outrageously hilarious characters, a wonderfully unique story arc and sweet, heavenly romance. No really - the romance takes place in heaven, or at least the part that doesn't happen in purgatory! What? Oh yes, this is quite the heavenly/hell read! And did I mention the steamy, dreamy sex??? Well, it has that as well! The story is exciting, original and brilliantly imaginative. The dialogue is smart, sassy, uproariously funny, well executed and flows effortlessly. But my favorite element is, without a doubt, the remarkable cast of fascinating, engaging and fabulously funny characters. They literally explode from the pages and capture your heart. The narrative is beautifully written with a first person perspective from our divinely beautiful heroine, paralegal Ashley MacLeod. Well, former paralegal since Ash is now deceased and newest member of the Supernatural Intervention Agency's Delta Squadron. Huh? What the heck? Yup, as a result of an unfortunate blow dryer accident, Ash is now one of the dearly departed and a newbie gifted ghoster in training! But it's a long story and definitely one you want to read, especially the part about Aedan O'Connor, the handsome, hunky Grim Reaper assigned to escort Ash to her brand new heavenly home. You would think if Ash is rewarded with a trip to heaven, then everything will be perfect, right? Wrong! It seems there are screw-ups even inside the Pearly Gates and someone just made a biggie. Oops! Looks like Ash won't be staying in the Penthouse after all and she certainly won't be having the perfect afterlife as her Grim promised. What's a girl to do? Well, she could start by falling in love with her Grim! Oh my! No spoilers from me but I will say this.....Beautiful, snarky heroine-check! Devilishly handsome hero-check! Ghosties, Ghouls, Grims and demons-check! A little delicious danger and drama-check! A boatload of hilarious humor-check! An outrageous cast of delightful characters and a loyal pet dog named Jack-check! Heated attraction, fiery passion, sweet romance and heavenly sex-you bet! That and a whole lot more! Deliciously cute and divinely entertaining!
When rating and reviewing a book, I always ask myself several questions. First, what did I love about this story? Pretty much everything! I adore anything paranormal or supernatural and love stories with comedy and romance but when I find a book that has it all, I'm in heaven! Sorry, I just couldn't resist the pun. Although this book contained 274 pages of ooey-gooey heavenly goodness, it was a quick, easy to follow read. Once I started reading, I simply could not stop. I was glued to my Kindle with the hours passing seemingly as minutes. I loved it! Second, I ask if there was anything I didn't like? And truthfully, not a darn thing! Third, would I recommend this book? You bet and I am but only for adult readers since it does contain some exquisitely written sex scenes.....Swoon! Fourth, will I read this author again? Absolutely! Just as soon as she releases her next book! And finally, was I entertained? Good gracious, yes! Totally and completely entertained! So much so that I purchased the entire series for my permanent library! This is one I want to keep so I can read it again! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
Unfortunately for Ashley, a clerical error was made and she was promptly booted from the Penthouse to the thirteenth floor. Everyone has an assigned job and must earn credits until they have enough to get back into the Penthouse. Ashley was stubborn when she was alive, so of course she's going to be the same in death and causes issues at her job working at the Prayer Call Center where everyone must be incredibly chirpy and nice before they ask you to sign off on their credit sheets. I won't go any further and risk delving too deeply into the plot, however, this world that the author created is fascinating! It's incredibly vivid and you can practically smell the stench creeping from the second floor as it's described.
I will give warning that there is quite a lot of talk about "lady parts" and 'man parts' but it is written in a lighthearted manner so it doesn't come across as raunchy.
Divine and Dateless had me in tears from laughing so hard. I haven't read a book this funny in a long time. It has the perfect amount of comedy and sexy through till the end. Grim is super hot, makes me want a grim reaper all to myself. It was written so well that I felt like I was sucked right into the book. Ash seems to get in trouble in the afterlife about as much as when she was living. I couldn't wait to finish it and yet I didn't want it to be over. Now I can't wait to read the next one.
