Reap & Redeem by Lisa Medley
He’s a reaper who has given up on saving souls. Will a dying woman be his salvation?
After a century of enslavement to pure evil, Kylen Larson is finally free. But he’s long past caring. The only woman he ever loved is dead, and he’s tormented by memories of the horrors his demon parasite forced him to commit. Now, he lives for nothing more than hunting down the infernal creatures invading Meridian, Arkansas, and destroying them.
Olivia Evans is in the final stages of cancer when Kylen accidentally saves her from demonic possession. When he rescues this innocent soul, Kylen rediscovers his mission—and his heart. All he wants is to help Olivia stay alive. He’ll just have to fight off an invasion from Hell first…

He was consumed with what could only be described as…emotions
Just as awesome as book 1 Reap and Repent! It was interesting to get to know Kylen and I loved that his story was a current one and a forward moving one. What I mean is that via his dreams, mostly, do we get to see flashes of his prior life or his time before we meet him in book 1. The rest of the time is a current storyline that also continues from book 1. I liked that more so, because I really didn't want to re-live Demon time with him! He sure is one broken, shell of a 'man' who is trying to deal with the guilt of his past 100 yrs or so & adjusting to life as it is now. Then he saves Olivia (I’m already dying. What did I have to lose?). I was so heartbroken over Olivia! She is such a sweet woman!! Their story is a great one, that has some great funny moments to offset the little darker or sad tone to this story. With lines like “As it was, they were playing a game of supernatural Whac-A-Mole” & “You Scooby-Snacked five demons and thirty souls?” how can it NOT be funny! Lisa comes up with so many of these hilarious lines that I am hard pressed to stop sharing them all with you! Would be much easier to just read the book. Besides a lot of these are hilarious because of the situation or the people involved with it. I wasn't sure if I liked Kylen and while it did take me most of the book to change my opinion of him, well let’s just say that he is one awesome dude! What’s that saying? Behind every great man is an even greater woman? Well that applies to here as well, except that you need to add a LOT more into Olivia's description, and it takes a long time to think of Kylen as great, or at least to me anyway! Lisa truly is a Master Storyteller!! Between the cover & the blurb, I was completely entranced so when I started to read the story I was transported into Reaper World and enjoyed every minute of it! I love Lisa’s Reapers with all of the originality & creativeness that she has put into this Reaper World of hers! I hope that there will be a LOT more books to come!! I don’t think I could ever have too much of Lisa’s Reapers!!

Reap & Reveal by Lisa Medley
By day he saves lives in the city he loves. Can he save souls too?
Nate is an EMT, a witch and a newly inducted member of the Reaper Authority Force. What he’s not is a reaper. With unexplained abilities, his true nature lies somewhere in between the angels, demons and reapers he finds himself involved with. When he’s paired with the reaper Maeve, he struggles to find his place in the rising war to save the souls of Meridian and the world.
Maeve has tried to hide her reaper handicap–her toxic reaper energy–from her colleagues. But when she’s possessed by a fallen angel and forced to poach souls for Hell, her greatest weakness might be the only thing that saves her.
Nate uses his growing powers and his innate magic to find Maeve. He’ll do whatever it takes to save her, revealing more than he ever imagined in the process.
About the Author
Lisa has always enjoyed reading about monsters in love and now she writes about them because monsters need love too. She adores beasties of all sorts, fictional as well as real, and has a farm full of them in her Southwest Missouri home, including: one child, one husband, two dogs, two cats, a dozen hens, thousands of Italian bees, and a guinea pig. She may or may not keep a complete zombie apocalypse bug-out bag in her trunk at all times, including a machete. Just. In. Case.

Sometimes being supernatural sucked.
She had filled a void in him that he hadn’t realized existed. Literally...snicker… HOLY!!! What an amazing story & series! I fell for Nate way back in book 1 and was thrilled that he got his own book! However there is no way I could have EVER guessed, hoped, wished or imagined such a story for him!!! This truly is an amazing book that is full of surprises, twists, shocking & earth shattering revelations and so much more!! I love that this series covers one gigantic overall storyline while at the same time there are all these fantastic “side” stories that are entertaining and help to explain, expand and strengthen the main storyline. Each “side” story is the story that is going on for one of the characters where you get to know a bit of their past, like what got them to this point, while at the same time telling their story AND the overall one as well. I love that each book is told about one character...even though they may find new friends, a working partner or even a romantic partner, it still is one person’s story. Typically a book is about the 2 people and the story flips between their point of view or their side of it. Lisa doesn't do that...a little bit, yes, but ..well I don't want to say anything more because I DO NOT want to spoil anything. Trust me! This is one explosive story!!! I cannot wait to see what else Lisa has in store for us! Well, for her characters, I mean! :) Lisa has a phenomenal wealth of talent and such an awesome gift for story telling! The depth to ALL of the characters as well as the ability to hook you right from the very beginning and it doesn't seem to ever let you go!! Long after I am finished I am still thinking of the storylines and what might happen in future books! However, nothing & I mean NOTHING in this book was ever predicted by this reader!! Isn't that the best part of a really great book, series AND author?!?! The ability to keep it all fresh, new, exciting, unique and unpredictable! Those qualities are exactly what I look for in my reading entertainment and I don't need to look any further than Master Storyteller Lisa & her Reaper series!!! Suffice it to say that I can't wait for book 4! Or book 5! Or book 6...you get the idea! This truly is a series you do not want to miss!!!
