Forgotten Review Tour

by Rider Jacobs
Genre: MM Paranormal Romance

Some houses come with secrets, and some secrets should never be forgotten. 

After eight years together, Peter and Rhys have finally achieved success: good jobs that keep them comfortably fed and a happy married life. The icing on the cake is their move from a small city duplex to a large farmhouse in need of repair. 

Peter instantly senses something going on in the house that he can’t put his finger on, something a bit sinister. Things start to happen: whispers in the night, crying only Peter can hear, faucets that turn on for no reason. When Peter starts to dream of a dark-haired young man who tells him how much he loves him, he feels like he’s losing his mind, especially since Rhys doesn’t see or hear anything. 

Only after suffering accidents and injuries does Rhys agree the house is haunted, and they’ll have to figure out how to fight a lovesick ghost.


4.0 out of 5 stars slow but a decent readApril 10, 2015
This review is from: Forgotten (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.*
I'm rating this book a 3.5 but rounding up.
I couldn't figure out if this book was supposed to be an Erotic MM Romance or a Ghost story. Though there's a story line for both, the time spent on each plot part, made me feel at times, that I was reading two separate stories.
I really liked Rhys and Peter. And if this was just an erotic MM story, it would have been a 4 star on it's own (without rounding up).

As a ghost story, maybe a 3. Which is where we get the 3.5 rating from. For the first half of the book, I kept thinking the something really scary was going to happen. But as it progressed and I realized what was going on, I thought, ok, let's roll with this. My problem with the ghost story plot line is that it was wrapped up too quickly and too neatly. I expected more from all the suspense that was built up. I felt slightly disappointed in how quick it was resolved.

In all, this was an enticing story that did keep my interest to an extent. Several times I had to set it down and walk away. It wasn't one of those, neglect the housework to read, type of books. But it's certainly a decent read.
Why no voting buttons? We don't let customers vote on their own reviews, so the voting buttons appear only when you look at reviews submitted by others.

Raised in a small town in the corner of Kansas, Rider's mother installed a love of books in her. Thanks to her mother she developed a love for all things paranormal at an early age. Her parents always encouraged her to use her imagination and write stories.
When she was 18 she left the small farming community without a stop light and headed for the bright lights of Las Vegas. She continued to write but life kept her from actually publishing anything. After ten years in the big city, Rider decided she wanted a much slower paced life and returned to Kansas.
It was here that she met a friend who loved her stories and encouraged her to submit them.
When not writing Rider loves to read anything she can get her hands on from the Dark taboo erotic books to the lighter Amish romance. She also has an interest in the lost art of pen paling. Putting pen to paper and sharing the good times and the bad through the written word with friends near and far. Rider also loves to travel and while she has been to the tourist attractions she much prefers the hidden gems off the beaten path that few know about. It is these adventures that often find their way into her books.
