⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ REVIEW: Drop Dead Gorgeous by Lauren Landish

What a delightful, quirky treat! This is EASILY the best book that I’ve read by this author, and I’m always excited to get my hands on her new releases. I really wasn’t sure what to expect going in, and that made the journey all the more interesting. It’s part rom com, part murder mystery, and part dark comedy – the perfect combination of elements to make this highly entertaining and bingeable. And the hero? LOVED him. He’s like a sweet alpha with a nerdy side, a guy who is willing to put in the work to get his girl. It was so refreshingly different that I was completely invested from start to finish, and enjoyed it the whole way through.

The story follows Zoey, a woman who has gotten used to talking to dead people more than she does live ones… and not in a supernatural way. She’s a coroner who is considered something of a black widow around town, since she deals with death on a daily basis and seems to bring it to those she spends time with. So when Zoey runs into Blake – literally – she does everything she can to stay away. But Blake is an insurance agent who has already calculated the risks, and he’s determined to win a date with the mysterious beauty. When their careers bring them together on a case of sorts, these two have no choice but to get closer.

I loved all of the offbeat comedy, the relatable (yet eccentric) characters, and the unique storyline. The tone felt very different than anything I’ve read by this author – in a good way – and it kept me on my toes throughout. And I really, really liked the growth in intimacy. Blake won’t let Zoey write him off, run scared, or keep things casual, so the payoff at the end of this slow burn was so good. There’s a great growth in intimacy that makes this otherwise light, fun read feel like it’s got some serious depth. We’re also introduced to some other intriguing characters, and their stories would likely be just as interesting. Here’s hoping that we get more like this from the author, because this was a seriously good read. I received an early copy via the author and am voluntarily leaving a review of this quirky caper.

Blurb:

I see dead people.
No, not like that movie.

I’m a coroner, and yes it’s the kiss of death on my dating life. When men find out what I do, I’m lucky to hear “it was nice meeting you.”

Until I almost accidentally kill Blake Hale with my car.
Instead of being freaked out by me, he’s intrigued.
No matter how much I try to scare him off, he keeps coming back for more.
And for a follow-the-rules guy, he’s breaking them all for me.

We couldn’t be more different.
He’s all goodness and light, with a brain that’s even sexier than his six pack.
I’m danger in a pretty package, and no amount of knocking on wood is going to make the happily ever after he’s promising come true. But…

With each word we exchange, my resolve weakens.
With each heated look, he gets further into my soul.
With every kiss, he consumes me by accepting me just as I am.

I deal in death all day. He sells life… insurance. What could possibly go wrong when I start believing in Mr. Right?

Drop Dead Gorgeous is a full-length meet-cute Romance… with a twist! It is a standalone.
