No one asked Mitch Seeker if he wanted to be a grim reaper. He didn’t sign up for the rumors, the lack of friends, or the erratic schedule. He doesn’t want to go through life watching people die. Especially not a man he loves. Mitch’s solution is simple—don’t fall in love. He’ll never have to explain why he doesn’t age or why he’s around death so often. Most of all, he will never be a widower.
But when his head is turned by world-class skier Nate Koehn, Mitch believes he may have the answer. If the soul attached to Nate is any indication, Mitch has found himself another reaper, in which case, his undeniable feelings don’t have to be suppressed. However, the spectral tag-a-long is only the beginning of Nate’s burdens. After a catastrophic loss, Nate is no stranger to grief and the hole it leaves behind.
The question they both must answer is loud and clear: is the pain of losing love worse than the pain of never having loved at all?
Once I picked up, Reaping Havoc by AJ Rose, I could not put it down. The well-written characters and the uniquely told story-line of this book made it a highly addictive read for me.

Although, he can marry and date he makes a deliberate decision not to have any kind of relationship because he does not want to endure the pain of watching someone he has fallen in love with, die.
When a tragedy hits his family, Nate finds himself needing a change. Deep into grief and running from a family that blames him for his twin’s death, he decides to move and try to start living a life of his own. When the two men meet the sparks that fly between them are undeniable. BUT, they are soon faced with the question of if the pain of losing the one you love worse than never loving at all.
Reaping Havoc is a fun book with many twists and turns that you’ll never see coming. I highly recommend reading this gem of a book, and hope you will give it a chance. You won’t be sorry you did.
