Deadly Kiss Book Tour: Review + Giveaway!

Welcome to my stop for the Deadly Kisses book tour! I have a review of this lovely book for you, as well as a giveaway for a signed copy. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:

Deadly Kisses
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?

My Rating: 4/5

A sweet YA romance. Deadly Kisses was a great read that was a mix of cute romance and thrilling magic.

I liked the characters in this book. However, I had one issue with them. I got frustrated with them occasionally because their actions didn't feel realistic. And they felt flat, not like dynamic people.
Nonetheless, I still liked them, though I wish the character development had been deeper.

Aiden was a great hero. He feels responsible for protecting his loved ones and feels deeply if he fails. This is what lead him to become a reaper and what got him into the conflict of the book. I liked him. He was very sweet and I thought it was adorable how he still loved Bee after being dead for so long.

Bee was just as lovely. She was a very strong character, though it wasn't always to her benefit. I liked that she was able to accept her reality instead of hiding in denial. She was very likable.

The romance in this book was central to the development of the plot. I liked how it went. Aiden and Bee were very sweet together and the romance never felt rushed. They were a delightful couple.

The plot was fast paced and there were several surprises in store. The thrills of the constant, literally life or death situations kept me hooked. And the ending had me very curious to find out what happens next.
