Paranormal Romance

ARC Review: The Dead Romantics – Ashley Poston

Florence Day is a ghost-writer with one big problem. She’s supposed to be penning swoon-worthy novels for a famous romance author but, after a bad break-up, Florence no longer believes in love. And when her strict (but undeniably hot) new editor, Benji Andor, won’t give her an extension on her book deadline, Florence prepares to kiss her career goodbye.

Although when tragedy strikes and Florence has to head home, the last thing she expects to see is a ghost at her front door. Not just any ghost, however, but the stern form of her still very hot – yet now unquestionably dead – new editor.

As sparks start to fly between them, Florence tells herself she can’t be falling for a ghost – even an infuriatingly sexy one. But can Benji help Florence to realise love isn’t dead, after all?

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Not going to lie, this story had me a little worried in the beginning. As an avid romance reader, I was intrigued by the blurb and the high praise it received from many of the bookstagrammers I follow. However, all that went around and around in my head was “how do ghosts get their happily ever after?”

Romance readers, never fear! Ashley Poston writes such a beautiful and satisfying ending to this story. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed Florence and Benji’s whole story but it was the ending that really set my heart aflutter.

I haven’t read anything else by Poston (yet) but I plan to remedy that soon. Her writing was delightful and full of heart. I easily found myself transported into the story and relating to Florence. It really was a fun, wonderful story with many hilarious moments between the characters.

Be warned though, there may be triggers for some readers (e.g. parental death) so please keep that in mind and do your research, if needed, before starting this book.
