Book Description:

They see death. Can they share a life?

Ruth Scott can read the energy of every person she meets. Then she meets Deacon Walker. She can see his ice-blue eyes, his black hair, and his gorgeous face. But this beautiful stranger has no aura.

Deacon is just as unsettled by Ruth—and, having spent more than two hundred years ushering souls to Purgatory, Deacon is seldom shocked by anything. As he helps Ruth to understand her true nature, she awakens desires that he decided long ago a Reaper can’t afford.

A demon invasion forces Deacon to confront the darkness in his own past even as he fights to save the human souls he’s charged to protect. When he’s taken captive, his first concern is for Ruth. But Ruth just might be able to save herself—and the Reaper she can’t live without—if she can learn to wield her newfound powers.

How stinking amazing would it be, if you were different and alienated all your life just to find out that you are this awesome amazing being?? I want to meet Deacon Walker... it's so not fair! LOL
This is an amazing and creative book! 
Ruth sees auras and because of that, she doesn't have a lot of social interaction that isn't negative. Deacon is a reaper and he has no aura- they are drawn together because as it turns out.... so is she!
Deacon is training her and in the process... you have to read it to see what happens- but you will never guess! I love that about Medley's writing. She zigs when you think the story is going to zag, you are on the edge of your seat from page 1!

Book Description:

He’s a reaper who has given up on saving souls. Will a dying woman be his salvation?

After a century of enslavement to pure evil, Kylen Larson is finally free. But he’s long past caring. The only woman he ever loved is dead, and he’s tormented by memories of the horrors his demon parasite forced him to commit. Now, he lives for nothing more than hunting down the infernal creatures invading Meridian, Arkansas, and destroying them.

Olivia Evans is in the final stages of cancer when Kylen accidentally saves her from demonic possession. When he rescues this innocent soul, Kylen rediscovers his mission—and his heart. All he wants is to help Olivia stay alive. He’ll just have to fight off an invasion from Hell first…

I have really enjoyed reading about Kylen and seeing more on how he is becoming the man he was meant to be. We get to see the story follow as it did from Book 1, but with the side road of learning and seeing things from Kylen's Point of View.
Saving someone else, Olivia, although not on purpose... he finds a mission that is true to his heart. 
Grab and start, you wont want to put it down!
I laughed so much. I love the authors wit and that it comes through so easily in the story.

Book Description:

By day he saves lives in the city he loves. Can he save souls too?

Nate is an EMT, a witch and a newly inducted member of the Reaper Authority Force. What he's not is a reaper. With unexplained abilities, his true nature lies somewhere in between the angels, demons and reapers he finds himself involved with. When he's paired with the reaper Maeve, he struggles to find his place in the rising war to save the souls of Meridian and the world.

Maeve has tried to hide her reaper handicap--her toxic reaper energy--from her colleagues. But when she's possessed by a fallen angel and forced to poach souls for Hell, her greatest weakness might be the only thing that saves her.

Nate uses his growing powers and his innate magic to find Maeve. He'll do whatever it takes to save her, revealing more than he ever imagined in the process.
*I was provided a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Nate is new in the Reaper Authority, but he isn't a reaper.... He gets caught in that in between. Paired with someone he never had gotten along with Maeve, he actually shows a different side of himself.
I was super excited in reading this book and seeing that Nate got his own story here. We meet and see other people but the focus is directed on he and Nate and Maeve.
Medley has a way of writing that really catches you off guard and leaves you just breathless! I love reading her work and I can't wait to read more!!! 
You HAVE to start the series today and see what I mean!! 
I absolutely love it!
