Overview

After losing her father and brother in the line of duty, Missy Prescott vows never to get involved with anyone who has a dangerous job. Blessed with a golden voice, she takes a job as a disc jockey with her own late-night lovelorn dedication show on a popular radio station in Baltimore.

Blake Decker has never had a family. He has come to count on the only family he knows—his brothers on the police force. He’s a one-night-stand kind of guy when it comes to relationships.

Betty McAllister, the caring woman who used to live in Missy’s apartment, is now a ghost. She refuses to cross over until Blake—whom she viewed as her own son—is happily in love. She thinks Missy is the perfect girl for him.

Missy and Blake need to keep each other at a distance as they work together to help Betty find a way to cross over. But when danger lurks, will Missy and Blake lose everything?

    An Enchanting Ghost and A Captivating Couple!

    Find this review and more at Lusty Penguin Reviews!

    Altered Frequency, the second of the Haunting at Inner Harbor series, is a delightful, sweet, and entertaining romance complete with a matchmaking ghost.

    Betty McAllister can’t cross over to the other side and reunite with her husband until she unites a couple as deeply in love as she was her husband. She has set her sights on uniting Missy Prescott and Blake Decker, so Betty creatively creates chance meetings for them, which are lighthearted and provide many laugh-out-loud moments. Despite their mutual attraction, Missy absolutely refuses to date Blake because he is a policeman. Blake, on the other hand, is gun shy because his last relationship ended badly and he doesn’t want his heart broken again. Missy’s fears are justifiable because her father and her brother were killed in the line of duty. Nevertheless, taking a leap of faith, Missy confides to Blake that Betty lives in her apartment. Blake agrees to help Missy help Betty cross over as long as it has nothing to do with them being a couple. While working together to help Betty, the chemistry between Blake and Missy builds and builds until they can’t keep their hands off each other. Their intimate scenes are intense, passionate, and hot enough to spark your e-reader. In spite of their understandable relationship fears, Missy and Blake independently come to the conclusion that it is better to love to the fullest because you just never know what will happen tomorrow, making them a thoroughly enjoyable couple to cheer for.

    With its enchanting ghost and a captivating couple, Altered Frequency is a memorable and charming way to spend a lazy afternoon.

    Oh how I adored Betty, ghostly matchmaker who makes beds, cleans

    Oh how I adored Betty, ghostly matchmaker who makes beds, cleans up and leaves the scent of fresh-baked apple pie in her wake.  She was clever and funny, and provided a series of ‘meetings’ between Missy and Blake to achieve her goal of finding Blake a “nice girl” just for him. 




    Missy was cleverly created as well: dealing with her own grief from the loss of her father and brother.  Her acceptance of Betty, watching movies, chatting, even arranging the kitchen cabinets to make her comfortable was sweet, and Betty became a mother / friend figure for her quite quickly.    




    Blake was more surprising: while claiming to not want a relationship or a connection, his internal battle and questions about the comfort and reactions he has to Missy told a far different story.  His reaction  when he finally does see Betty is sweetly touching: while she thinks of him as a son, he longs for her mothering and the sense of familial acceptance she brought. 




    Fields created a story that was believable with characters who were instantly empathetic and easy to like.  Adding Betty in the mix for some comedic relief, and then as the true heroine when Missy’s life is on the line brought the tension to a climax point, and had both Missy and Blake realizing just what was important.  While their connection and sex was steamy, the emotional revelations and that palpable connection between them was the most satisfying part of this story.  For a quick, short and highly happy read – this book is a winner.  




    I received an eBook copy from the publisher for purpose of honest review for the book tour. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Altered Frequency is the second book in the Inner Harbour series

    Altered Frequency is the second book in the Inner Harbour series, and once again Joya Fields makes a ghost romance novel work.

    Missy Prescott is Misty 'till Midnight on station WLOV. Her sexy voice has been haunting Blake Decker for a month. What a surprise when he learns she lives across the hall from him. How does he come upon this revelation? When the ghost of his 90 year old neighbor pulls the fire alarm!

    Wonderful characters (especially the ghost) and Joya always delivers the twists you never expect.

    Short, sweet and sexy! Will make you believe!

    He has trust issues. She has very good reasons for steering clear of him. Despite their undeniable physical attraction when they first meet, Missy Prescott and Blake Decker resist opening their hearts to one another. Not if Betty has any say in the matter. What's the harm of a little nudging from a sweet and friendly ghost anyway?

    What an enjoyable addition to the Hauntings at Inner Harbor series! Altered Frequency has less angst than Hereafter, but what it does have is more romance (both heartwarming and steamy kind), charm and a healthy dose of nail-biting suspense! As with her other stories, Joya Fields, makes you care so much for her characters and what happens to them. You just can't help but feel for Missy and Blake and what each have gone through in their lives. You will just adore Betty to pieces! I also loved the Baltimore setting and the details of both their jobs. Blake is a cop and Missy is a late night DJ. All these elements combine to create quite an engaging story!

    Can Altered Frequency be read as a standalone? Absolutely! I definitely place this story in the short-sweet-sexy category.
