Drop-dead gorgeous…and fatal.
Ollie Dormier’s tattoos are deadly. She is a Scrivener—an employee for Death—and her skull tattoos mark her clients for their demise. She does her job, and she stays out of trouble. But when her hands start to burn hot and fierce, and her control goes leaping out the window, all hell breaks loose. Ollie is showing the early signs of being a Master…demonstrating power that is forbidden.
That power is exactly what Reaper Brent Hume is counting on. A hot, scruffy rebel, who does marvelous and terrifying things to Ollie’s insides. Now he needs Ollie’s help—and her skills—to overthrow the evil and corrupt Head Reaper. That is, if he can figure out a way to keep this hot-handed girl cool…and keep his hands off.

3.5 Stars - 3 Flames
This was an interesting read. It takes a little getting used to though. There is a LOT of character building, describing the world and those within it. But the good news is that once you feel like you have a grasp of it, the story really starts to pick up and you find yoursel... ...more

If you ever meet tattoo artist Olivia Dormier, don't ask for a skull tattoo of any kind. If you do, you'll then receive one of her Deathmarks, which means Death, a.k.a. a grim reaper will be coming for... ...more
Ollie and Brent have chemistry and Brent can be an animal at times and that was really hot, "I fully trusted this Reaper. So I pulled my top over my head. He released a strange but contented growl..." Ollie, I swear that girl is bi-polar and Brent sometimes reminds her of the moods she has, "that... ...more
Review originally posted on my blog: I Heart Fictional People
I fell in love with this book instantly because of the cover. It is amazingly awesome. I knew I had to read it. Then of course, I knew I had to jump into it after reading that there would be a romance with a Reaper. Yes,... ...more
Being a Scrivener means that Ollie Dormier’s tattoos are deadly and like any good employee she tries to stay out of trouble but she’s showing signs of being a master and that is forbidden in this death defying paranormal romance.
Brent Hume is a rebel and he’s counting on Ollie’s power to overthro... ...more

There was something about this book that felt original and fresh. Abigail is an excellent storyteller but whilst I really enjoyed this book it took a while to warm up and pull me in. Once hooked however it was hard to put down

Let me start by saying that I don't read a lot of romance, so this book is a bit of a departure for me. A fun, rompy, satisfying departure. I definitely plan to depart again when the next book comes out.
I'll assume that you've read the publisher's plot summary already and won't rehash everything.... ...more
I'll never look at a tattooist the same- ever. Because in here, but the the tattoo is what calls a reaper for your death. Ollie is a scrivener and her scull tattoo has an extra powerful punch. It's a deathmark and you won't be around for long. And the head reaper Marin will make sure you keep up... ...more

I LOVED this book! I always love finding a good reaper story, and I was most definitely not disappointed with this one. From start to finish Abigail Baker had me sucked into the world that is Ollie Dormier, and boy is it one hell of a ride.
Ollie is a Scrivener who is a whole hell of a lot more p... ...more
As a fan of grim reaper based novels, I knew I had to grab The Reaper’s Kiss when it popped up on my Netgalley list. Baker has delivered an interesting and unique tale. Ollie is part unsuspecting hero and harbinger of death. Her dystopian and urban fantasy world is filled with unique creatures o... ...more

Got an ARC from Net Galley.
This was an interesting take on Reapers. Ollie is a tattoo artist that puts death marks on those intended for death. It might make you rethink asking for a skull. Since she isn't your typical scrivener she ends up getting into a bit of trouble when she... ...more
Well, this was interesting. I don’t read many Fantasy stories, so this one was a nice surprise.
We have Ollie and Brent, two rebels who have to fight the Head Reaper (a huge ass, btw), to restore order to the world. Ollie is very reluctant to become a rebel, which makes sense when you... ...more
I enjoyed this book! I was instantly drawn to Baker's unique take on the Reaper world and the Stygian citizens and their hierarchy. I'm not going to rehash the plot because there's enough reviews that do that, but I will share what I loved and what I didn't love as much. It's an easy read with a... ...more
I loved the cover of this book and I was instantly drawn to it. I've been a fan of Reapers, I loved Dead Like Me. One of my favorite shows ever! So naturally when I found out what this book was about, I had to read it.
We have Olivia aka Ollie who is a scrivener. She tattoos skulls on people's bo... ...more

First off, I want to send out huge kudos to the author. I love when authors start to think outside the box and give us something completely new.
I was pulled into this story from the very first page and stayed up into the late hours to get it finished.

The story had a lot of ups and downs, a lot of action, sadness and some romantic moments here and there. I liked a lot of things about the story, however, I found the romantic side of this story to be a bit lacking. Yeah, Ollie and Brent are together a lot, but other than the physical stuff, I di... ...more
4 Star Book Review | The Reaper’s Kiss By Abigail Baker | Giveaway
I gave The Reaper's Kiss a 4 STAR rating. I loved this unique take on the business of Death. "Death doesn't like bartering." We see this very clearly as the story goes along. I loved seeing Ollie become a leader in her own right an... ...more
I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This was a fun book that I was a little skeptical of at first. Marking for death with a tattoo machine? But it works. This was well-written and romantic with some heart wrenching tied in. It was a fun world and I can't wait to read... ...more
This was an interesting take on Reapers.
I liked the power that Ollie possessed and that when it come down to her friend Eve, she had second thoughts on what she was told to do. There were moments this book had an air of the horror element.
The story between Brent and Ollie was not overpowering an... ...more
