Mine to Take by Rachel Carrington

I didn’t ordinarily break the rules, but everyone has bad days, right? I mean, as an Angel of Death, I always toed the party line. That is until one night when I was feeling particularly vulnerable and along came Dominic. He’s another AOD, but don’t think of him as an angel because really, he’s anything but. To me, he was more like a walking advertisement for sin.

So that night, Dominic and I broke a cardinal rule—no fraternization between Angels of Death. Don’t ask me why it’s a rule. I guess that was why Dominic hauled ass before I even woke up the next morning. As an AOD, I understood. As a woman, I was pissed.

So fast forward two months, and both Dominic and I are facing disciplinary punishment if we don’t figure out how to put our differences aside and work together. Unfortunately, I’ve never been one to let go of a grudge very easily, and when it seemed like Dominic had no issues about what he did, my anger grew by leaps and bounds.

An argument generated more heat than Chernobyl, and once again, Dominic and I delved into the disallowed. And while we were busy getting busy, we lost a soul in a horrifying way. Now, we’ve been given an ultimatum. Find the soul and help her cross over, or both Dominic and I will have to cross over ourselves. As in permanently.

Reviewer: Dolce Amore
This short story is the third and the last of the Spirit series. It can be read as a stand alone book.

Cleo is an angel of death who helps the spirits to cross over. She can't believe it when Dominic comes to help her with the 18 spirits she has to help. They had a night of passion two months ago and he left her without a word before she woke up. However, the council ordered them to work together and fix their problem or they will have to cross over themselves and they will never be able to come back.

The story was good, I liked it. If you are in the mood for something short, paranormal, and with a lot of sparks, I recommend this is the book. I will give it 3.5 stars.
