Review: Drama Queens With Love Scenes

Author: Kevin Klehr

Genre: Romance, Paranormal Romance, MM Romance

Goodreads:  Add to TBR List

Purchase Links: Amazon | Barnes and Nobles | Book Depository

Book Blurb: Close friends Allan and Warwick are dead. They're not crazy about the idea so to help them deal with this dilemma are Samantha, a blond bombshell from the 1950s, and Guy, an insecure angel. 

They are soon drawn into the world of theatre - Afterlife style, with all the bitchiness, back-stabbing and ego usually associated with the mortal world. 

Allan also has a secret. He has a romantic crush on his friend, Warwick, but shortly after confiding in his new angel pal, his love interest falls for the cock-sure playwright, Pedro. 

Not only does Allan have to win the heart of his companion, he also has to grapple with the faded memory of how he actually died

My Rant: 

Drama Queens with Love Scenes was an interesting but unique story. I have never read a story quite like this before so it took some time or me to work myself into the story. The story line starts out with Warwick and Allen finding out that they are in the afterlife. As  the reader we are left to out own devices to formulate how in the world did they get there in the first place and the irony is that the character do not have a clue either.

The story is written from Allan's POV but the intriguing thing about the characters is that they all had personality and the title is a bit of an understatement. But they all contributed something to the story but the character I would have liked to have had more of a background story was Guy. Some how the bits and pieced we get from this character was enough to make you feel for him on so many levels. Please don't take this the wrong way, I did like Allen and is struggle's but there was just something about Guy that completely entrapped me.

Allen was in love with Warwick and it was hard to see him work through those emotions of being close to someone that you just couldn't have the way you wanted to was just heart wrenching. This story shown through some of the trails that Allan faced that love is not easy. Sometimes it hearts like hell and what you think is good for you is not. Although there were times in this story where i am rooting for Allan and Warwick to be together but when you really get down to it they are just not meant to be with each other but it took Allan to find himself in order to figure that out  while he had to endure watching Warwick find love within someone else.

While your on this journey of discovery with allen through the theatrics, you get to see Allan at his best and worst. There were times where I thought he was so whinny but if the roles where reversed, I had to ask myself would I react the same way. The author displayed all of Allan to you so that you could grasp where he was coming from and at the same time watch him develop into something great.

I really did enjoy this story but it took me to adjust to the authors creative style. WHen I say that this book is not a normal read, I meant just that. You have to have an open mind in  reading this story. But once you dive in you won't be disappointed, there is gut wrenching agony, love, adoration,  comedy, theatrics in an retro theme and its all going down heaven in this story and when a story has all those elements in them you just can not go wrong.

My Recommendation:

I rated this book 4 out of 5 Purple Rant Hearts because this storyline was unique and the author writing style was completely creative.

FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from the author, editor, publisher, or Promo Host. This is my honest opinion about this book and I did not receive any monetary compensation for writing this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.
