Review Power of Love by Barbara Elsborg

Title: Power of Love
Author: Barbara Elsborg
Source: Self purchase
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Length: Novel

Joe is a lost soul.
When Joe is killed in the line of duty, the result of a blunder by his girlfriend Poppy, he ends up stuck between worlds, not quite in heaven, not quite in hell. Heaven is Poppy lying in his arms, hearing the sound of his name on her lips as he makes love to her, again and again. Hell is the knowledge that to save Poppy, he must convince her to let him go.

Poppy is a soul lost.
Joe was Poppy’s heart, her soul, and since he died she’s lost it all, including her sanity. Everywhere she looks, he’s there—talking to her, touching her, sharing ice cream, showers and making love to her like there’s no tomorrow. But tomorrow does come, and letting go of Joe could destroy her.

Sometimes love lasts a lifetime. Sometimes love reaches beyond death. Sometimes…love lasts forever.


Got a box of tissues? Good... you're going to need it.
Don't get me wrong there was plenty of humor in this story to have me grinning from ear to ear, but a tragic love story always gets my tear ducts flowing. 

After an unfortunate event took the life of Poppy's boyfriend, Joe, she lets her guilt consume her to the point that she imagines he's still with her.  When he actually shows up with a new set of wings she doesn't know whether she's finally gone off the deep end or if it's a miracle. 

Wow, who would have thought angel sexin' could be so hot? The connection between Poppy and Joe, on a physical and emotional level, was so awesome that I thought my nook might burn up.  Poppy's struggle with guilt over his death and Joe's battle with expressing his emotions make this such a wonderful story.  The HEA was so amazing I even choked up a little at the end.  It was just the thing I needed on a dreary, snowy day to bring a smile to my face :)


  1. Went online, read first two pages, almost bawled my eyes out already, so bought it!

    Thanks, I was looking for an emotional, yet happy read for tonight :)

  2. I hope you liked it as much as I did :)

  3. Hi Carole, I saw your comment on here, so thought I'd pop on back and let you know that I did enjoy it - a 4 STARS for me :) It was GREAT to read another book set in the UK (London) - where I live. Makes me feel really part of the setting. Loved the story. Was a really fun, light, read and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants light and fun, with smokin' hot sex. Wasn't quite a teary as I was expecting, but had more laughs in it than I was expecting (in a good way). Thanks again for this review! x

  4. I totally agree. Incredible book. Really fabulous author.

    Barbara Elsborg really knows how to take her readers on a ride. Her books never disappoint.
