Love for the Reaper, The Elite #8 by Charlie Cochet

Remy is an innocent cinnamon roll who accidentally witnesses a murder. Dev is the criminal transporter that gets caught in the crossfire. But once they meet Dev can't leave Remy to be killed, and Remy sees the good in the man known as a deadly Ferryman.

From the blurb for Love for the Reaper:

Devlin “Dev” Espinosa lives in the shadows of the criminal underworld. As a Ferryman, his job is to safely transport “the dead” to their new lives, no questions asked. With no one to answer to, lots of cash, and access to The Anonymous–an exclusive club for the elite–Dev is loving life.

Until Remy Corbin gets into his car.

Remy is just a regular guy working a regular bartending job. At least, that’s what he thought before walking in on his boss taking someone out. Witnessing the assassination paints a target on Remy’s back, and when the bullets fly, he jumps into a stranger’s car.

Dev has no intention of getting involved in Remy’s problems, but something about the guy brings out protective instincts Dev didn’t know he had. Going against his better judgment, Dev vows to keep Remy alive.

Can wild nights fueled by danger and explosive passion lead to more? Or will the hitman on their tail cut their romance–and lives–short?

Love for the Reaper is a part of the multi-author series The Elite. Each book can be read as a standalone and in any order. What links these books together is The Anonymous, a club beneath the gritty city where only the elite are welcome.

SNik's Review:

Part of a multi-author series (The Elite) but all are standalone stories. Quick read. Instalove. Dual POV. 

Dev is a Ferryman, a contracted transporter of bodies dead or alive, but when a very desperate, tall, sexy man jumps in his car and bullets start flying, Dev immediately takes off with the troublesome passenger. Remy is an innocent witness and doesn’t mean to drag Dev into his trouble, but he’s new in town and has no one else to turn to for help. Dev can’t help being a little protective and Remy can’t help seeing the goodness in Dev as their connection grows quickly. 

This story has two men willing to sacrifice for the other, with some steam, a bunch of action, and some interesting secondary characters that keep Dev and Remy on their toes. 

A quick and short romp in the criminal underworld with an HEA for two nice guys.

Angel's Review:

When I read the description I was intrigued and curious about how this story was going to be. Recently I read a book that had a ferryman as a side character and that intrigued me. So for Dev to be a ferryman and one of the main characters was really cool. I was also intrigued by Sergio's character, I wonder what the story is between him and Gabriele? 

Also, Remy getting called a cinnamon bun and him being so confused by that statement was adorable.

These two are an unlikely pairing but go together so well. One thing that I thought was a bit bizarre was the pacing, it seemed like things progressed between them very fast. I just felt like that was a bit odd to me, but overall this was a good short story!

This book is full of action scenes, steamy times, snarky remarks, wrong place wrong time, and a hotel open only to the elite.
