Only love makes life worth living—over and over again.
Ghostwalker Blake Jones dies every day. It’s his job and how he helps trapped souls cross over. But to return to life, he needs an anchor. His new partner, Derek Scott, is a surprise. Not only is he male, but his appearance belies a caring and gentle heart. Despite attraction and a strengthening relationship, they know they shouldn’t take things further.
But there’s a big difference between knowing and doing.
Their growing love presents a problem, though not the one they expect. Blake and Derek have to decide if they should take their relationship to the most permanent level—an unbreakable metaphysical bond. Doing so offers both risk and unimaginable reward. Can Blake let go of his fears and put his complete trust in Derek in order to have the happily ever after he’s always craved?

Blake Jones is a ghostwalker. That means he dies every day, goes to the spirit plane (or afterlife) and helps lost souls to cross into the light, and he comes back to the living plane (us) and needs his anchor to take care of him. It’s his job.

Dereck Scott is the new partner for Blake, he is also his anchor, and he has the gene. That means he’s a powerful anchor.
Blake and Dereck work very well together, and they start to form a bond together. But there’s rules about fraternization. Are they going to risk everything and try to be more than co-workers? More than ever, Blake and Dereck will have to trust and believe in each other.


It was a super original book.
Blake dies every day to help lost souls, when he comes back it’s hard for him, he cries, he’s physically and mentally weakened, and his anchor needs to take complete care of him. He’s gay and refuses to have a man as a co-worker because he doesn’t want to be judged by him like all his ex-boyfriends did with him.
I really love Blake. He’s so sensitive and strong, he needs to be taken care of, that doesn’t mean he is a selfish person. Not at all, quite the opposite actually. His sensibility when he comes back from the dead is sad and beautiful. He’s so human even if he can’t die for good.

Dereck is perfect for Blake, and the fact he has the gene is even better. Dereck is a natural caretaker, and he wants the best for Blake. Despite the fact he’s madly in love with him, Dereck puts Blake’s needs before his. They are a good match and clearly made for each other, soul, heart and mind.I really loved this book.

The story is super original, the plot’s very good and the characters and backgrounds are very well built.
The words are fresh and fluid. It’s the first book of the series, and the author explains everything very well.
All the book is, in my opinion, a beautiful metaphor for life and death, I really loved it. it was a beautiful and poetic love story.
I recommend this book. If you want to read something different and original this book is for you. I’ll definitely follow this serie.

5 OptimuMMs for the Ghostwalker and his Anchor.
