Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
Michelle Gross is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine. She has a way with words that makes everything around me disappear and I can only focus on what she is saying, on the story she is telling. Soul Food is not like any other books I’ve read, which is a relief. Paranormal seems to start all sounding the same when you’ve read as much as I have. Michelle Gross brings us different and just as magical. Soul Food is gritty, sensual, and raw.

Ruth wants to make it so bad as a singer and songwriter, after a huge betrayal she runs into a Soul Reaper. He promises her fame for her soul. She takes the deal and agrees to 10 years before he comes for her. Those 10 years are some of happiest for her, she truly only cares about music. She just wants to make music. Ruth surprised me with her resilience and acceptance over everything. She is so likable. You understand all her troubles. Yet the way she continues to find acceptance is remarkable. Amit has no idea what he’s doing. He thought he was making a soul happy and bright to eat. The more time he spends with Ruth, the more they both fall in love. Amit is described as cold and aloof, and honestly that’s the best way to describe him. I loved seeing him slowly open up to Ruth.

They both go through a lot. Yet they both grow emotionally with each other. Soul Food will be one you can’t put down. Amit and Ruth will suck you in deep.

Crimson eyes blinked from the shadowy man. There was a shimmer in his silhouette, like maybe he was moving closer. There was no mouth or eyes. Nothing. Just a shadow with burning red eyes.


“Your soul sang to me, Ruth. It’s why I’m here.”



I shivered. “Please,” I begged, then closed my eyes. “This can’t be real.”



“But I am,” he responded.



My eyes popped open. “What are you?”



“A demon. A soul reaper.”


Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where opossums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.
As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.
The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write. 
The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure. 
She writes and loves many different genres so sign up to her mailing list to keep updated on her releases!
