Ceaseless by Abbi Glines

Existence #3
"Can he make her fall in love with him… again? 
When Pagan Moore proved worthy of Death’s devotion, he was given the gift of getting to keep her. 
But Dank was never promised that Pagan would keep him.
When a soul is created, so is its mate. In every lifetime, those souls find each other. They complete the other’s destiny. It’s time for Pagan’s soul to choose if she truly wants an eternity at Death’s side or if she wants the mate created just for her. 
Dank didn’t think he had to worry about her choice. He knew where her heart belonged. Until he realized that every kiss, every touch, every moment of their time together would be washed from her memories. He would have to win her heart all over again and prove to her soul that he was where she belonged. 
If only her soul’s mate wasn’t right there standing in his way."

This was the third and final book in the Existence series. And boy was it a great book. The Creator wiped Pagan and everybody close to her memories of Dank so that she could have a fair choice when it came to allowing her soul to attach itself to Jay, or to spend eternity with Dank.

I am well aware that this isn't exactly a high brow book. But it was entertaining, and that is all I really ask for in a book. The undeniable love between Pagan and Dankmar is endearing. And I needed to read some books with happier tones, after reading Allegiant.

I don't think it's fair to compare the actions of a fictional situation to anything that can happen in real life. Whether a deity of death exists or not is hardly relevant when people that are considered sane can't see ghosts or souls, so to compare actions in that kind of completely unrealistic situation to how you or people in general, would handle the situation just isn't fair. I loved seeing a sweeter side to Dank, he was still a little stalker-ish, but that was more about his desperation to get the person he loves to remember the love that he knew she still felt in her heart. Most girls would kill for that kind of devotion. Yet there were a couple moments when Dank was being a straight up perv, by watching her undress, but I'm sure most guys would take that kind of chance if they could be invisible in a girls bedroom.

One tiny thing confused me with this story, though. Leif. I believe that Dank threatened to end them if any of the Voodoo spirits came anywhere near Pagan or the people she cared about again. Yet there he was being all creepy and throwing a wrench in the rekindling romance between Dank and Pagan. But it was still a very enjoyable book, a fun quick read. I enjoyed this series. It was pretty well-written, and the story was interesting.
