Book of the Week: Reaping Havoc by AJ Rose #Review

Author: AJ Rose
Publisher: The Grim Writer Press
Length: 282 Pages
Publication Date: November 10, 2015


No one asked Mitch Seeker if he wanted to be a grim reaper. He didn’t sign up for the rumors, the lack of friends, or the erratic schedule. He doesn’t want to go through life watching people die. Especially not a man he loves. Mitch’s solution is simple—don’t fall in love. He’ll never have to explain why he doesn’t age or why he’s around death so often. Most of all, he will never be a widower.

But when his head is turned by world-class skier Nate Koehn, Mitch believes he may have the answer. If the soul attached to Nate is any indication, Mitch has found himself another reaper, in which case, his undeniable feelings don’t have to be suppressed. However, the spectral tag-a-long is only the beginning of Nate’s burdens. After a catastrophic loss, Nate is no stranger to grief and the hole it leaves behind.

The question they both must answer is loud and clear: is the pain of losing love worse than the pain of never having loved at all?


You never really know what you’re going to get when you open a book. You hope it will blow you away. You plead with the word Gods that this will be an experience you will never forget… good experience that is. Especially when it’s one of your most favorite authors. AJ Rose is one of my most faves! I have never been disappointed with any of her work. Her words stay with me.
Reaping Havoc, well… This one is tattooed in my brain forever. This book was a ride on a never-ending rollercoaster of emotion. I cried myself dry. I laughed till it hurt. I felt.
You hear reaping and you think death… and yes there’s death. But never has a book made me feel more alive. More appreciative of the minutes, the breaths, the beats of my heart.
Mitch and Nate are like beacons. They are hope, life, death, love. Separately they are but pieces in the puzzle of existence. Together, they are a masterpiece of true life!
I wanted to pick up a new hobby when I was done reading. I wanted to make my life matter more than what I thought I was already doing. That says something about a book. When you finish and you want to find cures for things!
This book touched me deeply. AJ Rose’s talent shows in every word of this story, and you will be swept away in it.
Outstanding book! A must read, must own, must love tale!
