Review: Forever by Jacquelyn Frank

New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank returns with the sizzling second book in her sensual new series set in the World of the Nightwalkers—where alluring entities known as Bodywalkers face the ultimate threat.

After being brought back from death, police officer Jackson Waverly receives the shock of his life: he has become host to a Bodywalker, a spirit that is reborn in flesh and blood, and part of a proud, ancient race that uses its extraordinary gifts to battle dark, evil forces. Jackson’s spirit is a powerful one—none other than the Egyptian pharaoh Menes, who longs to reunite with his eternal love, the Egyptian queen Hatshepsut.

While Menes is obsessed with finding the perfect vessel for his queen, Jackson cannot stop thinking about Dr. Marissa Anderson, the gorgeous precinct shrink who keeps pushing him to confront his grief over the loss of his K-9 partner. But what Marissa really arouses most in Jackson is intense desire, which is exactly what Menes is looking for. To fight a great enemy, pharaoh and queen must join; but to host Hatshepsut, Marissa will first have to die. Fate has given Jackson a profound choice: save Marissa from Menes’s plan or keep an entire species from the brink of extinction.

This is the second book in this world of the Bodywalkers that Jacquelyn Frank has created. And while this is not my most favorite type of nightwalkers by her by any means this book was a very interesting one. It it a weird world where the souls of the ancient Pharaohs of Egypt get what they wanted and this was definitely a case of be careful what you wish for lol. They are immortal but have to share a body with a human that was dying.so that both can survive and live. 
 This book didn't suffer from the sophomore book syndrome. It was actually better than the first book in this series IMO. I liked all the characters in this series quite a bit. I just have a problem with the mythos of the Bodywalkers. And this one was different from the first in that one Jackson or Menes picks the host for his queen. And she agrees to die to host Menes queen Hatshepsut. i didn't get that at all. But that is a quirk of mine and someone else could be perfectly fine with that. 
I enjoyed the action both in and out of the bedroom and I purchased this book with my own money since I had been given the first book to review. I give this one 3 1/2 stars and am looking forward to Leo's book. He is quite the character and definitely deserves his happy every after.
