Benjamin Grifton’s house is haunted by a gay ghost. How does he know this? Well, he can see it occasionally, and it likes to stare at his ass a lot.

It’s not that Ben is homophobic, because he isn’t. He even knows he might be a little bit in denial when it comes to his own sexuality, but damn it, thirty-seven is too old for rethinking your whole life.

Ben has seen enough ghost hunting shows to know he needs to help his visitor. Eventually, he figures out where the ghost came from, why it is there, and where it wants to be.

The problem is, how do you go and tell a stranger that someone they know has died?

That stranger, an artist called Adrian DuBois, is everything Benjamin never knew he was looking for. He’s kind and funny, and so damn gorgeous.

The two men connect in ways neither expected, and start to slowly build a relationship. But how do two beary guys fit together, especially when one of them is just finding himself?

And what do they need to do to make the ghost that brought them together find peace?

Great

Book Cover

  • Well-done

Engagement

  • Too brief to put down

Likes

  • Benjamin was willing to help the ghost (Gavin) find closure, but not before freaking out a little first
  • When the ghost tried to watch Ben and Adrian have sex, I laughed so hard; guess he's got to get his jollies somehow*
  • That they brought up how penetration isn't really the only way to have sex**

Character Depth

  • Hip deep

Mood Upon Completion

  • Happy

Grammar

  • Very few typos

Sex Scenes

  • Decently hot
  • Decently sweet

Dislikes

  • The way the ghost died was SO horribly sad; combined with what happened to the dog, it almost threw off the balance between funny and sad that the author was trying to maintain
  • It felt like things were a bit rushed due to it being a short story; there also wasn't much character background

Emotional Depth

  • Moderately emotional^

Content Warnings

  • Character death (supporting, one, past)
  • Character death (minor, animal, one, present)
  • Violence (supporting, one, past)
  • Non-con (talked about but doesn't take place with these characters in this book)

^Almost full-gamut, but not quite
__________

*Every time they tried, Gavin would make the lights flicker a la “Hey, I’m here and ready for the SHOW” lol
__________

**This is especially prevalent in M/M romance; the amount of anal sex in this genre comes more from heteronormative beliefs that penetration is real sex than any real-life applications. It’s seemingly a lot less common than the books say it is.
