Dyed and Gone to Heaven is the third book in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries series. These books were written to be read in order. They contain sexually explicit material and are intended for adults 18 and older.
Dyed and Gone to Heaven is Book 3 in Aimee Nicole Walker’s series, Curl Up and Dye Mysteries. This story continues with Gabe and Josh, following their romance and the mysteries that keep surrounding their lives and people they are associated with – while one mystery gets solved in this book, there are still some loose-ends, some foreshadowing that tells the reader there is more surprises coming in the final book of the series.
So, this story moves along at a nice steady pace and I found myself experiencing a variety of emotions while reading it. The author has introduced some new supporting characters and it makes me wonder if book four will have a happy ending for more than Just Josh and Gabe.
As with books one and two, Josh and Gabe know how to turn up the heat and get down and dirty, these two are very creative and fun together and I love how they are portrayed! “I’d had good sex, and even great sex, but being joined with Josh was… magical.” Suspenders will never be the same..ahem.
One of the things that I have loved about this series the most is Gabe and his self-assured attitude in regards to his sexuality. He is a gay man. He makes no apologies for being gay, he shows Josh love and affection when he wants and doesn’t try to censure their actions for fear of what others will think, he is a man who is confident with who he wants and that just makes him so much sexier- it’s a nice aspect of the story. I also love that even though he may be considered on the “macho” side of the spectrum he loves Josh and all his flamboyant qualities – they fit. Not to mention that these two are already starting to rub off on each other, their wicked banter and snarky comments are spot on and I loved it! “The sarcasm rolled off his tongue so naturally, it was like he was born to snark.”
Overall, this was another great addition to the series and I really don’t want to tell you what happens in the story – all I will say is there are lots of new beginnings, Mystery, plenty of sexy times, all the feelz needed and these two are well on their way to a perfect HEA!
I had found a man—or maybe, like with trouble, he found me— who was steeped in goodness. I admired his dedication to his family, friends, and justice. I loved that he was patient with me when I struggled at times to fight my demons and that he accepted me for how I was, not who he thought I should be. Of all the gifts that Gabe brought to my life, those were my two favorites. And somehow, someway, that beautiful soul was in love with me.
4 stars and a definite recommendation!!
