Fifth Grave Past the Light ~~ Darynda Jones

Fifth Grave Past the Light by Darynda Jones
Charley Davidson may not look like your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper, but she has vowed to reap grimness wherever she goes despite this unfortunate fact. Sadly, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. Since he is her main suspect in an arson case, she has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth. But when dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason, Charley has no choice but to ask for his help, especially when it becomes apparent that her own sister Gemma is the serial killer's next target. With Reyes's ability to observe incorporeally, surely he can find out who's responsible. Even if he can't, arsonist or not, he is the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return. Charley. All of her, body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay. Full Synopsis

Charley, my book BFF has gotten into it again. She confronts a clients nasty husband, she is confronted by questions from the police, she's forced into therapy, her room is filled with blonds, she has a horrible life/death experience and Reyes is just down the hall in all his pure hot steamy sexyness. No, that is not all of it just the holy crisps parts for me. The best was of course Reyes just down the hall, va va voom ! The worst, the bridge. I will have nightmares of that rusty evil place.
Reyes, Holy Hot Tamales warmed in fire is he hot in this book. He takes his romantic side out from under the bed and hangs it out for us to enjoy. if you didn't lust/love him before,(you're crazy? LOL) you will after this. He gives Charley, his attention, his heart ?, gives her security, gives her comfort and trust. He really shocked me with his total devotion to giving it all. Reyes has opened hi security wall and let her in. He asks her at one point to let him in and the result is spine tingling ! His line at the end, he got the last words (don't you go and peek it will ruin the book) was WOW, oh Double WOW...
Ms. Jones pulled a meanie by ending it right there. I forgive her, kind of. She wrote a fabulous entertaining story that had me giggling, swooning, sweating and crying and even praying. What a ride, I think my arse is sore from all the bumps, thrills and hard turns.
