Uninvited Guest - Brian Lancaster “Don’t worry, Sebastian,” he murmured, drifting off to sleep. “He’s in safe hands now.”

❤️❤️❤️

Oh my...the first 45% of this book is swoony and like falling into just the most perfect book for me. An unexpected meeting at a remote home, a group of fabulous men playing games around a kitchen table, beautifully depicted scenery I wanted to fall instantly into, a troubled MC, and a spirit of a lost love. I was an emotional wreck.

Had the book continued at this high, it would have undoubtedly landed in my top reads for the year. But unfortunately, we departed from this deliciousness for about 30% of the book. While it wasn't awful, it was just a little off the mark for me. The MCs however are wonderfully hot together and their first kiss was damn near perfect for me. They deal with some real life relationship issues and do so really well. The last 15% picked up and ended on a high for me. I adored these too. Now there is the paranormal aspect which honestly either could have been omitted or needed to be expanded upon...it was lacking for me and needed more.

Again, that first part, I could read over and over again and the friendships of these men and their interactions were some of the best I have read. Loved them all.

Beautiful cover that we hope brings us an equally beautiful story.

I'm in love with Anton already.

“I’ve got you.”
Stephen’s words and a sharp ringing were the last sounds he heard as the lights in the kitchen drained away. Strong arms caught his shoulders, stopping him from crashing onto the stone floor.
Off to a great and intriguing start.

...he understood himself well enough to know the arrangement would never work for him, he had met gay couples— and straight ones, come to that— who were by choice far from monogamous. Some even claimed the agreement had saved their relationships. Anton understood his heart well enough to recognize his inability to separate the physical bond from the emotional one, the sex from the love, just as he could never betray the honor and trust of a friendship. Those two aspects of a partnership had to come hand in hand.
<3 I'm loving Anton more and more with each page. <3<br/>

This book is tearing me up. Gaaah

“I’m like you. Intrigued by things that go bump in the night. The only midnight apparition I had in that cottage turned out to be naked and Spanish. And very much alive.”
“And did you like what you saw?” said Federico, grinning, as Sean laughed aloud. “As Sean tells me, if you have got it, you must flog it.”
“Flaunt it,” corrected Sean, followed by another burst of laughter, as he led them into a small side road. “Not flog. Here we are.”

*dying* I adore these characters.

Onto the fragile canvas of every blossoming relationship, there comes a point when the hand of one lover dabs the first imperfection. Sometimes this flaw enhances the portrait. At other times the image is irrevocably damaged, the fatal imperfection.

He would make this work, he told himself, somehow. Because that’s what you do when you love someone.

The Uninvited by Cat Winters
The Uninvited: A Novel - Cat Winters

The women in Ivy Rowan's family has always had the gift to see the dead. But the ghost of loved ones always heralds impending death. On an evening in October 1918, 25-year-old Ivy sees granny Letty just for a moment, but an hour later her father and brother killed a man. Ivy then decides to leave the farm and move to the city... 

 

The Uninvited is a book that took me completely by surprise. The cover and blurb made it out to be a much darker story than it was and I was in the beginning disappointed that it just seemed to be about Ivy breaking away from her old life, beginning a new life away from the farm and starting to see the brother of the man her father and brother had killed. Nothing bad with that if that's what your after. It was just not that I wanted. I wanted ghosts and creepiness. I wanted to Ivy to see ghosts, but the only one she seemed to see now and then was Billy, her brother that died in the war. I did enjoy ivy's relationship with Daniel.

 

But then something happened. I quite enjoyed the story as it was thought that at least it was enjoyable for the moment when WHAM everything was turned on its head in a twist I hadn't seen coming and then a page or two later WHAM twist number two happened. The book went from good to freaking great in just a couple of pages. I mean the last 20% was brilliant. And the ending was perfect...

 

 

It's hard to rate this book since the story, for the most part, was good, but not great, that is until the last 20% when everything just went fantastic. But in the end I gave it 4 stars and I'm looking forward to reading more from Cat Winter. 

 

Thanks to William Morrow and Edelweiss for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Oh God, poor Ivy. I must admit that I didn't expect this to happen. But that explains so much. This book is turning out to be better than I expected after my disappointment with the lack of ghosts and creepiness. This is so sad...
