Book Review: Specter

Updated: Jul 26, 2023

Halloween is on the way, and that means it’s spooky season – and I’m craving vampires, werewolves, and magic. (Oh my!)

Specter both fits that last category and is truly unique – I think it’s the only story I’ve ever read that involves a threesome with a ghost… or, well, someone who’s not physically there, anyway. Ravi’s been shoved out of his body, which makes things a little complicated with his boyfriend, Brady.

And, perhaps more importantly, the woman they’re both interested in – Mariángel.

Bringing a third into an established relationship is both hard to do and hard to write, but this book does it well – with the two men having to figure out both how to get what they want in their relationship and how to bring Ravi back from his state of non-corporeality.

One thing I especially liked was that Brady told Mariángel about Ravi before they went on a date – if that hadn’t happened, I’d have seriously questioned whether she could truly consent.

The sex was very hot, but my one major complaint was that both sex scenes were M/F – each Mariángel with one of the men, but never getting the men together, let alone threesome sex. Yes, Ravi was there for the first one, but we were in Mariángel’s head – so we couldn’t hear what he was saying. I wanted the full threesome experience.

It also felt a bit…rushed once the characters got together. I’d have liked more of an expansion of the relationship.

All in all, I liked it. It’s a great short read including a triad, a bunch of supernatural, and (to make things even better) an adorable dog. Despite my few complaints, I enjoyed it a lot.

Four stars
