Review: Grim and Bear It (Love Me Dead #2) by Heather Novak


Poppy’s skull over heels in love, and not even death can stop her…

Poppy Grim dreams of starring in a real-life rom-com. Instead, she’s an overworked, lonely grim reaper with chronic motion sickness from ferrying souls to the afterlife. She adheres to all the reaper handbook rules except one—she regularly visits the love she lost twelve years ago when she passed. She’s not worried—humans can only see her when they are about to die, after all—until Jake looks up and says her name.

Supernatural Investigator Jake Robinson wants to leave active duty because of past on-the-job injuries, but he’s determined to finish solving the most important case of his career first. His plans sink like the Titanic—his ghost roommate’s favorite movie—when he sees Poppy.

With death looming, they both risk everything—including their hearts—and work together to keep Jake alive while he stops the people threatening his family. But love is a losing game when the punishment for a reaper-human relationship is permanent removal from existence.
My Review:

A fantastic fantasy romance.

This is such a great story, but often emotional.  Jake and Poppy were in love, but torn apart while they were still teenagers, when Poppy’s family followed their destiny to became Grim Reapers.  Poppy and Jake never forget each other.  Jake constantly searched for Poppy, not knowing what happened to her or where she went.  He was just told they moved.  Poppy still had the ability to watch over Jake, without him knowing, even though she was breaking reaper rules.  But one day it all changed and Jake was able to see Poppy.  What does this mean?  Is it because Jake is a supernatural investigator?  Maybe he uncovered a new mystery.  Is it his time to die?  Or is there something else supernatural happening.  Lots of questions arise.  But the main question is, can Poppy and Jake be together again, or are they destined to always be a forbidden love? 

I was hooked on this book from the start. This author took me on an amazing journey into the supernatural world.  I also enjoyed catching up with the characters from the previous book in the series. I would recommend reading the Love Me Dead series in order so you don’t miss anything and you know the characters and their stories better.
