Take a hot, Mexican gentleman from the early 19th century and place him in the 21st century and you not only have a genuine nice guy but I’d say a diamond in the rough. Too bad this guy is a ghost.
Jesse, the male lead in Meg Cabot’s Mediator series is everything you could want in a guy. He’s charming, funny, hot, and your knight in shining armor when you need him (although he totally understands that you can kick butt on your own). Unfortunately, Jesse is dead. And not hot vampire type dead, I mean really dead.
Which makes it very interesting that he’s clearly the love interest for one Ms. Susannah Simon but that’s what makes these books awesome (besides the crime fighting and other amazing plot points).
Although the Mediator series isn’t new I’m surprised by the amount of people that have never heard of it much less read it. If you’re one of those poor unfortunate souls please pick up these books and fall in love with Jesse ASAP. You won’t regret it. Trust me.
‘I may have been dead for the past hundred and fifty years, Susannah,’ Jesse said, ‘but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how people say good night. And generally, when people say goodnight, they keep their tongues to themselves.’ – The Ninth Key
