Heaven Can’t Wait by Eli Easton

Life after death is a topic that most cultures and religions have written about, but the twist this story uses was fascinating. Brian is your average guy who wasn’t willing to accept anyone who was different until he was forced to help Kevin, a young man who he picked on before he died. Things are not always what they seem and Brian learns more about himself during this time than he ever expected. This may have been a short story, but the depth to the characters and the plot were well rounded ending in a way the reader never expected. I especially enjoyed the characters in heaven whose behavior was dry and at times very irreverent. This is one story that shouldn’t be missed!

When Brian Matheson dies at nineteen, his soul is in limbo. He has one chance to redeem himself before he’s thrown into a nasty pit. All Brian has to do is save the life of Kevin Anderson, a boy he and his friends tormented for being gay.

Kevin thought he’d finally escaped bullying. But his college roommate, Chuck, and his homophobic pals, prove him wrong. Now he can only wait for another room to open up—and try to keep his eyes off sexy, uber-straight Chuck.

Chuck is struggling to keep up the tough-guy façade everyone expects, but being trapped in a dorm room with the prettiest twink he’s ever seen isn’t helping him keep his feelings hidden.

If Brian can untangle this mess, he’ll deserve his wings.
