ARC received via netgalley in return for an honest review
First, I had to remember how to breathe. Then, I had to learn how to survive. Two years, three months and sixteen days had passed since I was the Rowe Stanton from before, since tragedy stole my youth and my heart went along with it.
When I left for college, I put a thousand miles between my future and my past. I’d made a choice—I was going to cross back to the other side, to live with the living. I just didn’t know how.
And then I met Nate Preeter.
An All-American baseball player, Nate wasn’t supposed to notice a ghost-of-a-girl like me. But he did. He shouldn’t want to know my name. But he did. And when he learned my secret and saw the scars it left behind, he was supposed to run. But he didn’t.
My heart was dead, and I was never supposed to belong to anyone. But Nate Preeter had me feeling, and he made me want to be his. He showed me everything I was missing.
And then he showed me how to fall.
5 of 5 stars.
I could not read this book fast enough. I actually got mad when the real world disrupted my plans to read this book a few times. I absolutely fell in love with Nate the first time we meet him in the beginning of this story. He was a nice guy. And usually the really nice guys aren’t written that well, in my experience. I’ve only read a few I really liked. But Nate was written so great in this one and still very hot. I have another guy to add to my book boyfriend’s list. I fell as in love with him as Rowe did. I know Rowe had a lot of growing to do in this story. So even though she made a couple of boo boo’s and I wanted to stop reading at one point, I was able to take a step back and tell myself she was young and had been unable to really experience life the past couple of years. The banter between Nate and Rowe had me cracking up a lot. They had some great comebacks for one another. The practical jokes were the best.
The side characters were awesome as well. Ty and Nate’s relationship made me smile big. They were so good to each other and hilarious together. Cass was another great addition. I loved her hardass-ness with Rowe when she really needed it. Looking forward to reading Ty’s book next
~She might be awesome.~
~Nate is the challenger I always wanted, and I like him more than I thought I did. I like him more than I should. And a little part of me is okay with that.~
“Yeah, well, guys don’t really like laughing after sex.”
