Dying is easy. New love is terrifying.
Avery Wagner quit ghostwalking when he lost his beloved anchor to cancer. Now teaching others who have the ability, he’s beginning to live again—but he’s not looking for another lover, not now, maybe not ever.
But then he meets Jameson… younger, talented, dedicated, almost perfect, even though his mouth sometimes opens ahead of his brain. And Jameson wants Avery desperately, though he’ll settle for friendship if he can’t have more.
When an emergency demands they work together in the field, Avery discovers just how perfect Jameson is. But he had a perfect love once before, and he’s scared to even consider that he might have a chance at another. Can he trust Jameson with his newly healing heart?

Avery Wagner is a retired ghostwalker since he lost his anchor and bonded love, Luke. He doesn’t ghostwalk anymore but gives lectures for young ghostwalkers and anchors.
Jameson doesn’t have the gene of an anchor, but he’s meant to be an anchor, and he’s a natural caretaker in need of a ghostwalker.
When Avery and Jameson meet, an instant connection burns between them, but Avery is still recovering the loss of the love of his life Luke, and Jameson still needs to learn more about his tasks and how to really take care of Avery.
Is it possible to love again when you were lucky to have it once? That’s what Avery, with Jameson’s help, will have to find out.
Somebody to die for is book 3 of the Requiem Inc series.
Avery is an experienced ghostwalker, even if he hasn’t done it since Luke’s death, he’s still a good teacher and helps the young ghostwalkers in their training. He didn’t expect to feel something for Jameson when they met. Avery is lost between his past and his possible future with Jameson. I loved Avery, he broke my heart, and brought tears to my eyes, his pain and fears broke me. I also loved his maturity, his ability to name his emotions, to admit his fears and to accept his weakness.
Jameson is an anchor. He’s meant to take care of others and especially a ghostwalker. He’s a trainee, and he still needs to be paired with a ghostwalker. He doesn’t have the gene, but that doesn’t mean he can’t be a good anchor because he’s a natural and taking care of others is something he loves doing. When he meets Avery, he could see the sadness in the eyes of this beautiful man, and Jameson will spend all his time and energy taking care of him, maybe without really knowing it at first. I loved Jameson. He’s maybe 23 years old, and younger than Avery, but he’s very mature, sensitive, smart and very kind. I completely melted for him. He’s completely devoted to Avery and put his needs before himself.
This book was a good addition to the series. We met Avery in book 1, and his story, how he lost the love of his life, his anchor with whom he was bonded. It broke my heart back then, so I was very happy to read this book about him.
The plot was focused on Avery’s “recovery” and how he moves on with Jameson’s help. We still have a glimpse of the former couples, Dex and Blake as well as Michael and Sam; I liked it.
I was completely caught up in the story and this universe. I really like it, and I’m hoping to have a book about Tyler (he sooo broke my heart in book 2).
I gladly recommend this book it’s sweet and adorable love story with with a beautiful rainbow of feelings.

4 OptimuMM for the Widower and his future.
