Audio Review ~ Dom of the Dead (1NightStand #172) by Virginia Nelson

She couldn’t imagine living without him.

When Carson Black’s longtime crush and best friend dies in a bike accident, she openly weeps at his funeral. Never expressing her feelings for him, she thinks she might be going mad from grief when his voice, his scent, his desires…seem to fill her apartment.

He was afraid to demand what he needed.

Randall Stokes loves Carson but didn’t express it while he was alive. A dominant, he didn’t dare dream that the sweet girl next door would do the things that he needed to find satisfaction. When tragedy strikes, he not only has nothing to lose but a suddenly clear view into what she needs, wants, desires. Is it too late to take what they’ve both longed for?

A ghost of a chance…

Love lingers, though his body is gone. Can Carson and Randall find love in the Dom of the Dead?
 
Dom of the Dead is a beautifully sweet tale with interesting twists and turns of grief, living life to the fullest and accepting your own desires. This is a story of being too afraid to reach for what you really want until it is too late. We see Carson, the female protagonist, going through the early stages of grief when her best friend Randall dies in a motorcycle accident before she had the courage to reach out for more than their “friend zone” relationship.

Randall is a dominant man who has dreamed of his best friend for years but did not want to “taint” Carson and their relationship. Throwing a fantasy one night stand style dating service into the mix is an interesting way to throw the two characters together with Randall as a ghost. The end is a beautiful twist of fate – reminding you to reach out for life and hold on with all your strength while you can, after all tomorrow is never promised.

The reader is a good choice. You can believe she is Carson with the intonations and strength of words of a woman struggling through grief. The author and reader combination do a beautiful job of bringing this twisting story together.
