When he finally decided one night to admit that he’s in love with Beck, that new life takes a new, hot and happy turn.

There are more twists and turns in this story then I have read before.   So with each turn of the page something new comes up.  There is heartache and true love murder and sacrifice. Above it all is the love of family and friends.

In today’s world we hear about all the bad things that happen yet none of the good.  The dedication to family is still alive and well in this story.  It may lead into directions that might not be one I would choose but still it is for the good of the family.

Diego is a great character who has been through too much in this life.  He still does his best to be an honest and honorable man, that is until someone threatens someone who is his.  Then he will go to whatever ends he must to protect them.

I thought that this would be a comedy with this title, I was wrong it is a great story that steps into the paranormal but not so far as to make the story unbelievable.  The title does make sense once you read the book. It’s a great use of imagination and wording by the author.
