Review for Dead Over Heels

Review for Dead Over Heels

I received a copy from Xpresso Reads in exchange for an honest review.

Holy crap, sorry, but that is my first reaction to the short novella that this was. Holy crap. Not a bad Holy Crap, but a good holy crap. This book was a rollercoaster of emotions, of events, and that all in 37/38 pages. Yes, such a short story but it has everything and while I do want to know more about the characters, I feel the story is over. This story is done.

Even in 37/38 pages we get to learn about the characters, about their pasts, and that their lives are intertwined not by the present but by the past. I won’t spoil anything, really, this is on ride you need to do without knowing anything.

The book starts off with them at the police station, immediately my thought is what happened? Why are they there? Why wouldn’t he forgive you? And then the story really starts, with how these 2 met and how they finally end up at the police station. It is a story that goes from awwww, sweet, to OMG what just happened in mere seconds. Terrifically done of course. I just couldn’t stop reading, I had to know what was going to happen. When the first supernatural event happened it was just aww, they saw ghosts, that is kind of creepy and scary, but also cute and romantic. But with the events following it was mostly just Wow, Wow, OMG, No way. Just a few of my reactions while reading.

The romance was perfect, and they really had chemistry together, I felt terribly sorry for them to having to go through these events.

The story takes place over some time, and sometimes, especially with short stories, this might feel unnatural, however it felt pretty nice in this one, it gave the story more depth.

The ending was perfectly done, though really it just broke my heart and even now that my emotions have stabilised a bit, I am still so sad for these 2. I won’t tell you what happened, but wow.

All in all, this is one story you don’t want to miss. Step up in this ride, and be warned to have your heart broken, to see a couple that is meant to be but faces quite a few obstacles in their way.
