Death: a word Mia Baron was all too familiar with since the murder of her parents when she was a young girl. Her drive for vengeance was the reason she became a Death Dealer—a soul guide through the spirit realm—signing her life away in her own blood. Pain forged a concrete wall around her heart and no one or nothing would ever penetrate it…until she got what she desired most—revenge.
Deacon Gage craves justice for his own horrific tragedy that forced him into the same life Mia chose, with the same promise of vengeance dangling just out of reach. His expert training makes him an Elite—one of the few Death Dealers to ever achieve such a status—and no one can shift his focus from the blood he seeks.
But when the two are partnered for yet another job and a heart-shattering case rips open Mia’s heart, Deacon realizes he’s the only one who can save her…at a price that might be too much to pay: opening his heart to her. The clock is ticking and her life hangs on the balance of whether he can truly let go or will hold onto his desire for blood.
As I read, I had to keep reminding my self that Death Dealer was only a novella!! There is so much detail, action and drama packed into this exciting story, I was entranced the entire book! Mia's life has been tragic to say the least she's signed her life away as a "Death Dealer". Translation: Mia helps souls into the afterlife. Not too hard right? Um no......think again, this job can be very dangerous (but super exciting for the reader) Mia is fueled by revenge and it is an all consuming passion until she meets someone just as hell bent on revenge as she is......
Deacon Gage is dashing, sexy and on a mission for revenge. In fact, he's become an elite death dealer and is soon paired on a mission with Mia. This mission is much more dangerous than either of them suspected and Mia ends up getting hurt. The only person able to save Mia is Deacon ( exciting right) Deacon has had his heart behind a barricaded behind hatred, revenge and death so long, can he put that all aside to save Mia? Will he?
What I Thought:
"Death Dealer" is a fast paced nonstop jaw dropping, thrill ride you won't want to end. You can't help love, Mia. Yes her life has been very hard but she never says oh poor me and complains about it. Her goodness shines through her tough exterior & she realizes she IS a strong person. The chemistry between Deacon & Mia is electrifying!!! I mean wow, have an icepack and a fan by you ladies because they sizzle! This is definitely a MUST read!!!!!
