The Quick and Dirty: WWII nurse dies and is chosen to be a Reaper. She selects 3 hell hounds to train as her companions in guiding souls to the afterlife, thinking the only challenge is gaining their trust when really, their lives depend on whether or not they can secure their bond.

I absolutely loved this debut by Rhea Watson (although she writes under another pen name that I love just as much). I read this book knowing that there were some triggers for me and maybe that’s what caused me to feel all the feels but I really think the story is well written and the characters compelling. The relationships flowed organically — it wasn’t an insta-love situation — and there were ups and downs that kept things interesting and the story moving forward. I had a hard time with Knox at points but once you know his background it wouldn’t have made sense for it to go any other way than the way it had gone. The sex was 🔥🔥🔥🔥, (I wanted more of it!) and I loved that at the end of the book, I still wanted more. Can’t wait for the next in the series!

One grim reaper. Three hellhounds who refuse to bow down to her. A monster hunting them in the shadows…

Ten years ago, I was judged worthy of life after death and returned to the mortal realm as a grim reaper. Scythe in hand, I guide souls to deliverance–and it’s time for a promotion.

My new territory is triple the size of any I’ve worked before. High death rates mean one busy reaper, and the only way to keep up is with a pack of hellhounds. Faithful. Strong. Merciless. Hellhound shifters are a reaper’s right hand in the field, shepherding and guarding souls until they can be reaped.

We get our pick of the litter from the best breeders in Hell, but for some reason, I’m drawn to the pack no one wants.

An alpha who refuses to yield.

A beta who doesn’t take me seriously.

A runt who flinches at every command.

I want them–even if they don’t want me.

Because the hunger in their eyes tells a different story. But the fact that they can’t decide whether to love me or hate me, fight me or screw me, is making our situation way too complicated.

Still, I refuse to give up. If this infuriatingly handsome trio can’t be trained, if we don’t pass the trials, they go back to a cage and a cruel demon master.

Yeah. Not happening.

Reapers and hellhounds are natural allies, and the sooner we secure our bond, the better, because as it turns out…

All our lives depend on it.
