Blurb: Gregory cheated death. And now, seven years later, the grim reaper has returned. Can Gregory convince Angel of Death, Thanatos, to grant one final request: a single lover before he moves on to his great reward–and he chooses Thanatos.
At fourteen, Gregory Harris suffers a massive heart attack during a baseball game. As his coach tries desperately to keep him alive, a tall, handsome man in a hooded black cloak stands beside him–the Angel of Death. Gregory begs this grim reaper for more time on Earth so his parents can prepare for his death. The reaper grants him his wish, and even though Gregory saw him for just a few short moments, he often fantasizes about the mysterious creature.
Seven years later, the Angel of Death is back for Gregory. Gregory is ready to move on to the afterlife, but he regrets that he never had a lover and partner to call his own. Gregory has no intention of escaping this grim reaper. In fact, he intends to do whatever it takes to convince Thanatos that they belong together forever.
Review: Wow. this is a really good story involving Greek mythology. Gregory suffers a heart attack and when Death comes for him he isn’t scared but asks for the time to say goodbye to his family and prepare them for his death. Years later, he is visited again and strikes a bargain with Death. Death is Thanatos, who has developed a soft spot for Gregory over the years. When he comes to collect Gregory, for the final time, Gregory strikes a bargain.
A really sweet story about a young man who defies death himself to get the man he loves. Gregory has suffered greatly because of his weak heart over the years, but it was a price he was willing to take to give his family time to adjust and prepare for his death. Thanatos has visited Gregory over the years and has admired the young man for his love and compassion. When Gregory cons him, Thanatos grants him one last wish.
Thanatos and Gregory make a great couple in this story and it was wonderful that Gregory got to experience the one thing he wanted most with the person that he wanted the most. But fighting for it, as his time came to an end and Thanatos was determined to send him on to his rewards, when all he wanted was Thanatos, was a great twist. Gregory has help, in the form of Nemesis, who advises him to remember what they promised one another. They also have to contend with Thanatos’s twin brother trying to cause trouble.
This is a well written story that I really enjoyed, it has incredible hot sex, interfering siblings, a strong willed young man, a stubborn Death and a happy ending, so really all I can recommend is that you read it and enjoy.
