Publisher's Summary

When you can talk to ghosts, things are bound to get spirited.

The ghosts have been there since before I can remember. When I was a kid, they doted on me, but as I got older, they got more demanding. I’ve spent my whole life seeing and talking to dead people and trying to pretend I’m not, because the living just don’t understand. Nobody wants to be around the freak who claims to see ghosts. Until I go to Mannix Estate.

Once a private country home, then a posh hotel, it was closed after a suspicious incident but is now an immersive historic experience. It’s also haunted AF, and everyone knows it. Finally, I’ve found a place to work and live where I can be useful. Where I’m actually wanted.

There are only two problems: I spent a hot, sweaty, satisfying night with Ewan the blacksmith before I knew we’d have to work together. Everyone knows sex with colleagues is a bad idea, right? Even if he’s the world’s most ripped cinnamon roll.

Plus, the ghosts are keeping secrets. There’s something going on that’s not normal, even for a haunted estate. And, I suspect that when the truth comes out, I’m the one who’ll have to deal with it…and it won’t be good.

Quite Enjoyable!

I enjoyed listening to this one. I love Josh and Ewan and the rest of the family. The ghosts are hilarious and quite interesting. I laughed and swooned out loud with Josh and Ewan’s budding romance. Pillaged and Plundered had me cackling hard.

Perfect read for the spooky season. 🖤

So sweet and spooky

In this one, we have a young man who has been able to see ghosts his whole life and was suffering for it. He comes across a job in a haunted hotel/b&b and it's perfect for him.

The night before his job interview he hooks up with a nice guy. Come to find out, that guy works at the same place.

I loved the ghost parts as much as the romance here. I thought it was well done.

This is a series so while the main MCs got their HFN, the ghost situation is still ongoing.

The narration was perfect and Nick Russo always does a good job.

Wow. I read it first, the audiobook was better!

I was already in love with this story. The characters are wonderful and the plot is unique and engaging. I tried the audiobook before the sequel came out and I’m beyond thrilled I did!

The narrator is excellent and he brought the characters to life. I’m going to listen to the audiobook for the sequel now instead of reading the actual book. I can’t wait!

Highly recommend. If you want hilarious ghosts, dynamic main characters, sweet romance with a HEA and a demon that needs to be vanquished — this is the story for you!

Spirited Situation

⏤ 5 Maple Leaf Audio Review ⏤

"𝒀𝒐𝒖'𝒓𝒆 𝒗𝒂𝒍𝒖𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆. 𝑰'𝒗𝒆 𝒏𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒓 𝒎𝒆𝒕 𝒂𝒏𝒚𝒐𝒏𝒆 𝒎𝒐𝒓𝒆 𝒗𝒂𝒍𝒖𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆, 𝒎𝒐𝒓𝒆 𝒑𝒓𝒆𝒄𝒊𝒐𝒖𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒏 𝒚𝒐𝒖. 𝒀𝒐𝒖 𝒍𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝒖𝒑 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒘𝒐𝒓𝒍𝒅."

Spirited Situation (Ghostly Guardians 1) by Louisa Masters is a paranormal, mm, one-night stand, workplace romance told in the dual first-person point-of-view.

When you can talk to ghosts, it makes your life a little complicated. A job at a haunted mansion, a one-night stand turned co-worker who likes your quirks may just be the new life Josh has been looking for.

Josh and Ewan are so adorable. I loved their connection and the chemistry they have. The banter between all of the characters, living and dead, had me laughing out loud. I am interested to see where this series goes.

Nick J. Russo did a great job narrating Josh and Ewan’s story making it so much more than it was when I read the book and he made a single narration feel like a duet narration.

I loved this paranormal Romance!

The characters were fun with an engaging plot line and an audio performance that really brought the characters to life. I look forward to seeing where the next book in the series leads!

Strictly mediocre

The description, the dialogue, the setting is all great, but the world building, the magical system is lacking. The writer, in my opinion, does not explain how, and when people started seeing ghosts, the difference between someone who sees ghosts, a medium, and an exorcist. It seems that this is more focused on characters, rather than the supernatural, even though ghosts are basically common place in this book. The narrator, has a great voice, but he doesn’t know how to pronounce certain relatively common place words like dressage and unrequited, which is kind of sad because that’s basically his job. this book didn’t grab me, so I don’t think I’ll continue in the series since there are so many other, better books.

So much love!

I love this book! I started out reading it and ended up listening to the audiobook and I'm so glad I did because the narrator is awesome. This book is fascinating and I love the spooky ""dark spirit" that really took it to another level.

Epic!!

This story was awesome! I listened to it in one sitting and laughed out loud at some bits (which got me some odd looks whilst I was out for my run!!)
Brilliant concept, I was hooked from the start and absolutely cannot wait for the next book!
Nick J Russo was fabulous in this, brilliant execution and I still start laughing now when I hear him shouting 'Hire him!' in my head 😂
so so good - what a team!! definitely recommended 😊 xx

Bored to dnf

I hoped that this book would be great because the blurb was interesting and Nick J Russo is a super narrator. This story started out okay however, halfway through things just became too ridiculous for my liking. I felt like the writer had no clear plot, just a great premise, and then she made it up as she went. I got bored with the word salad in the middle of this book and decided to dnf.

FANTASTIC, I love a ghost book

🎧 Narrated Nick J Russo 💞
A fantastic narrative from Mr Masters with all the All The characters. I had to laugh at the ghosts and Josh troubles.
A fantastic start to the book as Ewin and Josh with a hot hookup.

Josh is in town for a new job interview at the estate to get our of the city and her ghosts. Ewin was the Blacksmith.
Laugh out louds are big in this and I loved Josh and the many ghosts he encountered.
The Estate has a history with deaths but that the tip of the ice burg as the ghost tells more about things.
Oh God I cracked up when they are both drunk and their See's are the word of the day. lol
