Review: Well as far as ghost goes this guy is funny, weird, but funny. Cal was an actor who was flat broke, so when a lawyer contacts him he is quite surprised. Especially when he finds out that, the lawyer is contacting him about his ex-boyfriend. It would seem Max had committed suicide and left everything he had to Cal. Three million dollars was a lot of money and to Cal it was just strange that a man who swore that he didn’t love him and left him behind would leave this money to him. The only problem was Max wasn’t leaving him alone. Or should I say Max’s ghost would not leave him be.
When Cal gets there, he is met by Dewey, the lawyer for Max’s estate. Cal is quite taken by Dewey and wants to get to know him better however Max didn’t want that. He wanted Cal to die and join him in the afterlife. Which of course Cal turns down. The only problem is Max is driving him insane. Goosing the real estate woman and scaring her, inserting himself in Cal and Dewey’s sex life and just plain talking to him every time he turned around had Cal trying to figure out how to get rid of him. I got to say when I picked this story up I didn’t think this was what I had in mind. I laughed my ass off at every turn in this book. Dewey, once Max shown himself to him, decided to help Cal get rid of him. Setting up a compromise, even arguing with a ghost had him bewildered but he wanted his man. This story has quite a bit of humor to it and a lot of surprise’s inside of it. If you want a great laugh, you need to read this book.
I loved the way Dewey and Cal act with each other. Once Cal gets over some problems he sees, they hit it off pretty good. I liked how both characters slowly open up to each other, and the trust that Dewey puts in some of the things that Cal talks about, to the help he wants to give. I must say though this story is a bit far out there. It just doesn’t come off as believable to me. I will recommend it though because it was one of the funniest stories I had read in a long time. I did wish for more sex scenes however. One kinky sex scene with both characters and a ghost had me smiling for more.
