Wait Until Dawn by Bailey Bradford
Book four in the Southern Spirits series
Beware of what follows you back from the dead…
Detective Rich Montoya was attacked by Sheriff Stenley’s stalker in When the Dead Speak. A year later, Rich is having a rough time, haunted by a malevolent spirit that’s making his already fragile existence hellacious.
Rich, who’s kept to himself for the past year, is scarred more than physically. The last thing he thinks he needs is a lover, little does he know…Chris Neeland is a big guy who drives a big rig, and all it takes is one look at the sexy, wounded man driving the cute little Miata and Chris is sunk. His mystical mother always told him love would hit Chris like a bolt of lightning, fast and hard and not without pain, but he kind of hadn’t believed her until he meets Rich.
Rich Montoya is not a stranger to this series and last time we were with him he was fighting for his life and after being tortured by Connor’s murderer. This book catches up with him about a year on from the attack and doesn’t find him in a good place. He has manipulated his friends and family into thinking he’s doing ok when in fact he’s very close to ending it all. He has been left with the scars both physical and mental but he also has one very angry and evil spirit haunting him that is pushing him ever closer to the edge.
This series is like settling in with the family as the characters continue to grow and move forward. I love the way the author has entwined so many minor characters into main stories and by doing so introduced some interesting angles.
Chris Neeland is the walking epitome of don’t judge a book by it’s cover. He is a big man with an even bigger truck and seems to have piercings everywhere. At first Rich is almost afraid of him but Chris is a huge softy with a big heart and might just be what Rich needs.
There is the usual instant attraction between the two men that this series favours but there was also a gentle giant who was able to look past Rich’s scars and worn down persona and see the man he once was. He was also man enough to stand up to Sheriff Laine!
I liked this one – it was awful to see Rich at the beginning but it was great to see him on the mend when he realised his friends and family really did care and weren’t going to take his bullshit anymore.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
