Review - Forgotten by Rider Jacobs

by Rider Jacobs
Genre: MM Paranormal Romance

Some houses come with secrets, and some secrets should never be forgotten. 

After eight years together, Peter and Rhys have finally achieved success: good jobs that keep them comfortably fed and a happy married life. The icing on the cake is their move from a small city duplex to a large farmhouse in need of repair. 

Peter instantly senses something going on in the house that he can’t put his finger on, something a bit sinister. Things start to happen: whispers in the night, crying only Peter can hear, faucets that turn on for no reason. When Peter starts to dream of a dark-haired young man who tells him how much he loves him, he feels like he’s losing his mind, especially since Rhys doesn’t see or hear anything. 

Only after suffering accidents and injuries does Rhys agree the house is haunted, and they’ll have to figure out how to fight a lovesick ghost.

My Review:
Peter and Rhys want to leave the big city and find a quiet house in a small town but instead find a quiet house in the country that has a history.  Peter and Rhys work from home and needed a larger house and now that they have moved in, their time is occupied by renovating and updating it.  As they start to get comfortable, strange things start to happen.  Peter is an author who thinks this house could give him a good story for his next book but never counted on it being haunted.  Rhys is a game designer and doesn't believe in ghosts but the strange activity might just change his mind.  Peter and Rhys have a strong and loving relationship and I loved the chemistry between them.  The storyline is interesting and evenly paced with the mystery of this home being slowly revealed to the readers and the couple.  This book has a blend of romance, supernatural suspense and mystery.  There were times that the story seemed a little disjointed, such as they both knew information about the ghost without talking about it beforehand and that would throw me off a little.  I felt that this was a good story and would rate it a 3.75 stars.  It kept my attention enough that I continued to read it though I felt it lacked the depth that I wanted though the few intense paranormal scenes definitely added to the story. ~Booklover Sue

Raised in a small town in the corner of Kansas, Rider's mother installed a love of books in her. Thanks to her mother she developed a love for all things paranormal at an early age. Her parents always encouraged her to use her imagination and write stories.

When she was 18 she left the small farming community without a stop light and headed for the bright lights of Las Vegas. She continued to write but life kept her from actually publishing anything. After ten years in the big city, Rider decided she wanted a much slower paced life and returned to Kansas.

It was here that she met a friend who loved her stories and encouraged her to submit them.

When not writing Rider loves to read anything she can get her hands on from the Dark taboo erotic books to the lighter Amish romance. She also has an interest in the lost art of pen paling. Putting pen to paper and sharing the good times and the bad through the written word with friends near and far. Rider also loves to travel and while she has been to the tourist attractions she much prefers the hidden gems off the beaten path that few know about. It is these adventures that often find their way into her books.
