Review: Whirlwind (Southern Spirits #8) by Bailey Bradford

Dying sucks, but the afterlife is one hot place to be.

Stefan wasn’t physically perfect in life, and his search for someone to love him resulted in his murder. Now he’s been dead for years, and he’s lonelier than he ever was when he was alive. His physical problems might have vanished when his body ceased to live, but his spirit has to deal with the memories of the past.

Jordan and Gideon are friends who share eager guys when they can find them, but being in a war zone hasn’t allowed for that to happen often. One roadside stop puts an end to their lives. Jordan and Gideon are at a loss to understand what happens to them, why they stay behind when others go up into the light. Searching for answers, they head to Jordan’s hometown—McKinton, Texas—but a hell of a lot of things have changed in the decade and a half since Jordan left.

Namely, the arrival of one wicked, joyful spirit named Stefan.

Whirlwind by Bailey Bradford was a wonderful addition to the Southern Spirits series. I always look forward to reading a book in this series and have grown to love the men in McKintock, Texas and the spirits that inhabit the town.

Gideon and Jordan are newly deceased. Friends in combat but each wanting more, never took their relationship to the next step until they left the physical world and entered the spirit realm. Stefan, introduced in Aftermath, was a spry, lively spirit who had a devilish sense of humor and a penchant for being voyeuristic.  Stefan fell hard for the two combat soldiers as Jordan and Gideon head to McKintock to find answers of their demise and ability to “hang on”.

The relationship was so genuine between the three men that at times I failed to remember they were spiritual beings and not flesh and blood. Ms. Bradford delivered sexy scenes as the three consummated their union, hot sex with hunky men. Stefan’s mischievousness added levity to a situation that could have been sad and devastating but knowing that love could be found after death made the story worth-while.
Ms. Bradford never fails to remember the characters from the previous books that have grown into even more mature and steadfast men, enhancing each subsequent book in the series.

Whirlwind was a book worth picking up and reading, but the series is best read in order, so this reviewer recommends you start at the beginning. You will not be disappointed.
