really this is more like 2.5. this is nothing in comparison to the rest of the series. I found it more like porn with plot and the was weak.

My main problems:

1. How in the hell did it take them so long to know who the ghost is. Are they all idiots?

2. I am not sure that the Sound play was sanitary. Dean kept that thing in there for days! That does not seem comfortable or healthy. Although to be fair, I have no experience in this.

I just started skimming the sex scenes as I got bored. The next book is just so much better than this one! ( )

It was an ok read, but more a standard love story. The mystery/ghost part was redundant for the story, and not very well done imho. The MCs were both nice enough to read, but it somehow didn't move me and was quite chliched.
There was a lot of detailled bedroom scenes, but somehow I felt that I knew all the moves from the other books already. There is one scene at the end that goes beyond what you normally read in anything that is not specified as porn (and special porn at that) Enema and fisting - not what you would expect in a ghost mystery romance novel
Not sure what that should add to the story, but ok. For me the series about Bay City paranormal investigations ends here - I skipped the 4 books in the middle, and will not pick up the any others. ( )

This is Dean's story-one of my favorite characters featured in the BAY CITY PARANORMAL SERIES....visiting a couple he knew from college, Dean meets Sommer, who owns and runs a BB. Instant attraction , hot MM sex and a nifty litle Ghost story, strive to make this a swift & enjoyable book. ( )

I truly enjoyed this sixth book in the BCPI series. I have been waiting a long time for Dean's story, and it didn't disappoint me. I only have two complaints--one is that a small part of the mystery was left unsolved. I won't go into detail about that because I don't want to give away too much. The other complaint is about the overuse of the word "Y'all." I am a southern girl who loves that word, but all southerners know that we don't use it in practically every sentence. That got to be a bit annoying.Warning: There was one "ouch" moment in a sex scene near the end. All in all, this book is a keeper. ( )

Where the Heart is a spin off of the main series Bay City Paranormal Investigation; the main series is the story of Bo and Sam and it has five books all about them, but if you haven't read them, no problem, this last book is loosely connected and you can read it as stand alone.

Dean Delapore is Bo and Sam's colleague, a bisexual man that believes in forever love but has no problem to enjoy also a for now fling. And so, when he is visiting a couple of friends in a charming small town USA, and spot an interesting young man, Sommer, he is all for an enjoyable short adventure. Dean has no problem to admit when he sees a very handsome man, cute and pretty, but probably at first, he doesn't believe that Sommer could be something else other than a fling: Sommer is shy and cute and Dean prefers his men to be a bit forceful.

But Dean is on for a surprise: even if in public Sommer is all bushes and not direct glances, in private he is a total top; he likes to order around and Dean likes to be ordered. Plus Sommer has also another merit: he owns an haunted house, and for a paranormal investigator, this is too much of a bait. What started like a nice fling is becoming more and more an important story, and neither Dean or Sommer are sure to be ready for that.

I like this last chapter in the series since it's more romance than drama; the paranormal sub-plot is nice but not too creepy, the paranormal investigation evolves in a nice way without too much angst, and it ends in a rather tender way. What emerges more of the story is Dean and Sommer's relationship, it's rather interesting to see apparently shy Sommer turns in an almost sex slaver, with Dean playing the role of his willing toy boy.

There are also two nice supporting characters, Kerry and Ron, the couple Dean went to visit, and I liked very much Kerry's reaction when she realized that Sommer practically kidnapped her friend, who was expected to visit HER and paid the due respect to her mum in waiting status: she is jealous and she has no problem to express her feeling, but then she is pregnant, and no one can argue with her.
