Blog Tour: Forgotten by Rider Jacobs ~ (ARC Review)

Blog Tour: Forgotten  by Rider Jacobs ~ (ARC Review)

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.

3.5 Stars

This story was interesting. It was a good concept, and the story had a lot of potential, but the author came up short in telling the story. I think she spent way too much time on Rhys and Peter and not enough time on the research and discovery of Alexey's story. I wanted to know much more about him, his back ground and where he started and how he ended up where he and how he did. There were holes left in the story that needed to be filled.

I wanted Peter and Rhys to find out more in their research. I think this book could have done with a good beta reader.

The chemistry between Rhys and Peter was good, but it was way too sickly sweet at times. The terms of endearments, which I don't mind used in books, were WAY overused. It was too much.

I feel like this is a very negative, and that's now how intended it to be. It wasn't a bad story it just needed some help. I think it moved too slow and could have been paced faster. It felt at times it just wasn't going anywhere and I wanted more action. This book had potential and I would definitely give the author another try.

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.
