I am so exited to be apart of the RJ Sullivan Haunting Obsession Blog tour hosted by

“She wants to be loved by you…alone!”
Daryl Beasley collects all things Maxine Marie, whose famous curves and fast lifestyle made her a Hollywood icon for decades after her tragic death. Daryl’s girlfriend, Loretta Stevens, knew about his geeky lifestyle when they started dating, but she loves him, quirks and all.
Then one day Daryl chooses to buy a particularly tacky piece of memorabilia instead of Loretta’s birthday present. Daryl ends up in the doghouse, not only with Loretta, but with Maxine Marie herself. The legendary blonde returns from the dead to give Daryl a piece of her mind—and a haunting obsession he’ll never forget.

My Thoughts:
This is a Love Story and a Ghost story. Two kinds of stories I enjoy so bonus that it was both. RJ Sullivan is a master of dialogue. It is one thing I look for and enjoy in a book so I love when dialogue is wonderful. It flowed well it felt like I was listening in on a conversation. It was a short novella but the author took the time to development the characters in a way that there was understanding of them and their personalities. I think I liked the characters because they were so much more real then the average ghost story. Loretta stood up, took action, and did not back down. They were realistic (as much as you can be when up against a souped up overcharged sex icon's ghost) in that their responses made sense. It was told like you would tell someone about a particularly rough day. Rebecca Burton was an awesome character, I fell in love the instant she walked in the coffee shop. I can not wait for more books featuring her. It was haunting. Maxine for all her faults and for all that happened was such a sad creature really. I caught myself tearing up a little. Which screams to be great story. In a word the book is elegant. :)

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5

 As usual Seventh Star does not disappoint with the art. More info can be found on the artist Bonnie Wasson on the Seventh Star Website.
