Heaven is hell without her...

Former Navy SEAL Sebastian “Bash” Lockard died in Afghanistan after leaping on a grenade to save his comrades. Little did he know his act of heroism would grant him a ticket into Heaven’s elite army as one of the few and powerful Archangels. Struggling with his new existence, Bash still retains his human memories, leaving behind a wife he loves with all of his heart. Although he’s forbidden to see her, he can’t resist her lure, or the mortal desires he harbors for her.

As a young widow and nurse, Irene Lockard still mourns her husband two years after his untimely death. His absence is everywhere, and when her best friend weds, she hits an emotional rock bottom. As if summoned from the skies above, Sebastian appears before her, and they share an unforgettable night. But when he once again vanishes, she wonders if she’s truly gone mad with grief.

The only way Sebastian can remain with Irene is if he makes the ultimate sacrifice. But will she overcome her fear of losing him again to another war?

MY REVIEW

I’m a sucker for a SEAL. Throw in the paranormal element and how can I not want to immediately dive into the plot? In Sweet Sacrifice, L.D. Rose did an incredible job of blending romance, suspense, intrigue, mythology, religion and the paranormal. Sounds like a total blast, right?

Bash Lockard died while in tour in Afghanistan after jumping onto a live grenade to save his team. He was a brave and honorable man, who was survived by the love of his life - his wife, Irene. Irene was still mourning her husband and while it had been two years since his death, she couldn’t move on. When her best friend gets married, she stands at her side as Matron of Honor, although the last place she wants to be is at a wedding. But wait… over there… that face… it couldn’t be… yet that man is a dead ringer for her dead husband! Bash is back but he’s still dead. He still can’t be with his soul mate. Why? He’s answered to a higher calling… okay, he’s a freaking ANGEL!! A demon-fighting, earth-protecting, hot AF ANGEL!! Surely fate can find a way for these lovers to be reunited. Right?! Well, for them to be together once again, Bash would have to make the largest sacrifice of all. Is the sacrifice too great to have his love back?

Goodness, this story was amazing! It was short but it didn’t feel like it was lacking anything despite its length. Bash was a hero I could completely get behind and although Irene annoyed me a bit with her reactions, I kinda got it. How the heck would I react in a similar circumstance? No clue. So who the heck am I to judge, right? I was all set to find out how these two would get together but I felt bad about what the sacrifice was. Regardless, Bash and Irene were insanely hot together and their chemistry, both physically and emotionally was off-the-charts. Is it crazy that I started falling for Gabriel? I wonder how we could convince the author to continue along this line and give us a little something for him too ;)
