Steve Berman - Vintage


Steve Berman

I had been meaning to get my hands on Vintage for some time now, so I was ecstatic when Steve asked me if I would review the book. I found myself very envious as I read the book, not just because of the relationships in the book, I was envious of Steve's writing. It had everything my own project was missing.

Vintage is about a young gay man who is trying to find his way in the world. When his parents found out he was gay he was forced to leave his home--in which he fled to his aunts house. In his new town he befriends an assortment of friends.

When he meets a new guy, who just happens to be a spirit, someone who had passed away long before he was born. It is up to him to figure out if the relationship will work or if it was doomed even before it started.

The narrator* uncovers secrets not only about himself but also about the young ghost, Josh.

Berman weaves a wonderful story, full of characters that you feel like you have known all of your life. I'd have to say one of the best ghost romance books that I have read. He could definitely give The Mediator series a run for it's money--and win.

I would suggest this book to anyone who enjoys a good spine tingling adventure mixed with romance and a good comic relief--As I said before I stayed up until 5:30 reading the book, it had me hooked from the start.


*The main character does have a name, however it is mentioned only once in the book. I stayed up until 5:30 AM to finish reading this book--I remember the story, just not the name. Sadly. =[
