Reaping the Benefits by E.J. Noyes

Wow! What a story! It’s been two weeks and I’m still not quite over it. 

What’s the book about?
Morgan Ashworth works for death as one of her many minions. She’s the best at her job and truly believes no one can do it quite like her. She lost who she thought was her soul mate many years ago so what’s the point in trying to find the replacement when she knows it’s just not out there. She is happy doing her job and is content that her only friend is Death. End of.

That all changes when she has to administer an afterlife package to one of her employees, Jane Smith. It’s not helping matters that she is insanely attracted to Jane but also that Jane has a bucket list that Morgan can help her achieve before she signs her afterlife package… The only problem is that if number 12 on the list (Sex with my boss) is to be ticked off, then the attraction is definitely mutual. Which means Jane can throw Morgan’s carefully planned existence into disarray because Morgan cannot fall in love again. She can‘t, right?

Book Strengths
This book was exceptional, and that’s not surprising as E.J. Noyes wrote it and she does blow me away every time she puts pen to paper to take us on the journey with her. E.J. Noyes is an exceptional author; there are no two ways about it. She has the ability to draw me into the story so much that I feel like I’m hovering over the characters being almost voyeur in their life. For me personally, it takes on a whole new element of reading. There are a handful of authors that can do that for me and she’s certainly one of them. 

Ok, so enough about the author and on to the book! Wow! What a plot and the characters were equally amazing to read. It was written in the third person which totally worked and is not the norm for this author, but she pulled it off beautifully. The pace was perfect and I couldn’t believe I had read through the night to then realise I had finished it, I was so immersed in the story. I loved Jane and Morgan equally and for very different reasons. I don’t want to go into backstories and plot too much because I think it could ruin the journey for you, but it’s one hell of a ride. 

I do want to shout out to the secondary characters though because some of the moments with Cici, aka Death and Jane’s mother, were my favourite scenes. Those two were hilarious but also just fantastic characters to read. 

I think the whole concept was fun and so out of the norm, I almost wonder how the storyline to came to be. Where did the inspiration come from? 

Character Chemistry
Jane and Morgan have chemistry in spades. In and outside the bedroom. They have kinetic energy that draws them to one another. They also feel a lot of each other’s emotions and are incredibly in tune. And let me tell you… They set the sheets on fire!!!
