Review: Deadly Kisses by Kerri Cuevas(giveaway)

Deadly Kisses by Kerri Cuevas
Publication: March 5th 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

Book Description:
Aiden Grant has a killer kiss. Literally. And it’s not every reaper who gets to work with the Sixteenth President. Sure, Honest Abe likes to throw out history lessons with reaping assignments, but when you’re favored by the ancients, grim reaper life is pretty sweet for a newly dead seventeen-year-old.

Then things get messy.

Aiden is assigned to reap the soul of Bee, the only girl he has ever loved. When Aiden’s kiss of death fails, intertwining their souls, she is still very much alive and they are both in trouble. The ancients want Bee, who has special powers of her own, and they’ll do anything to get her.

Some rules are meant to be broken, even if that means Aiden must bargain with his own soul to save Bee. Who knew the afterlife could get so complicated?

Review:



When Aiden Grant is asked to reap the soul of the girl he loves he doesn't refuse.Between killing her and  remain a Grim Reaper or ascend in Heaven  ,Aidan ends up doing exactly the one things he didn't expect.

Reading about Grim reapers and how everything works for them isn't exactly something surprising..Maybe i'm not used to this kind of book.Yes,i read before about this subject..Once or twice..It really doesn't matter how many times,but i saw movies about Grim Reapers and that's why i'm not surprised.Yikes!

This story was good.I liked Aidan and Bee.They were the only characters i liked.Don't ask why..
For me it was interesting because of how everything happened. What was odd was how Bee reacted and the fact that she wasn't afraid of death.I think if i was in her place i would have screamed like a little girl and run like hell..but ,well,i'm not in her place.
What i expected was something more complicated and hard.Yes,it was a little complicated because of the Ancients and Bee's family secret.

Maybe i'm too harsh,but the fact that Bee accepted so easy that she had 6 days to leave until Aidan had to reap her soul was the one thing i didn't like at all.

But how things changed from there..Well,i guess i can say that the beginning was really good and that was all.From there it kind of spinned out of control.It wasn't really bad and i enjoyed reading about how Bee and Aiden acted when they were together.How they tried so hard to discover the truth about why Bee could see Grim Reapers.I admired Aidan for his sacrifice.But that's all.

Once again i mention the fact that the book was good,the characters were almost perfect.But now is the time for me to mention the fact that i'm not a big fan of Grimm Reapers and death,but this time i will try to forget just a little about that and focus on the story.

The end of the book surprised me a little.I wondered what could happen and i was thinking that may both Bee and her brother will die..but that's what i get for thinking what i shouldn't.Yikes again..


When i think about Grimm Reaper and Death i imagined something complicated and scary..In my opinion in this book things were a little complicated and scary but not enough to make me want to read it again.
But..I'm not ignorant..and i love how everything changes when is about love.That's what made me read the whole book- the fact that Aiden loved Bee enough to want to be with her and trying to save her life by sacrificing hes soul. Not good for you?For me it was.
