"Dream Chaser" by Sherrilyn Kenyon

If you're keeping track here, this is a Dream-Hunter book, not a Dark-Hunter book. This is one of several books in Kenyon's world of 7-ft tall hunks who go off and try to save us puny humans from otherworldly forces. And if you need any more information than that, you'll have to look elsewhere, as I am going to give you the story in a nutshell.

Vengeance-hungry Dream-Hunter Xypher meets ghost-helping medical examiner Simone Dubois. They are "chained" together by magical cuffs that will kill them if they go too far from each other. The togetherness grates at first, then turns to attraction. Both have major trust issues. The cuffs are taken care of but by that point they are trying to help each other instead of running for the nearest exit. They have sex, of course. There's an ending that proves that love conquers all. And...... fade out.......

Yep, it's pretty much like every other Kenyon book in this set of series (the Dark-Hunters hold the most books, and there's one or two with Were-Hunters as well). It's not a bad read, but let's face it, it's not Shakespeare by any means. And much as I hate to say it, I'm just about done with this series. While I enjoy reading about different people in each book, Kenyon has the annoying habit of trying to throw in as many previous characters as possible. There are literally too many people on the page! The names are starting to get downright silly, too.

I'll read one more, "Acheron", and that's it. Of course, it might really be "it" anyway. If the books all hold to the same formula, our beloved Ash will find the woman that heals him. Once that's done, what else is there?
