“Since the car crash that took her father’s life three years ago, Emma’s life has been a freaky — and unending — lesson in caution. Surviving “accidents” has taken priority over being a normal seventeen-year-old, so Emma spends her days taking pictures of life instead of living it. Falling in love with a boy was never part of the plan. Falling for a reaper who makes her chest ache and her head spin? Not an option.
It’s not easy being dead, especially for a reaper in love with a girl fate has put on his list not once, but twice. Finn’s fellow reapers give him hell about spending time with Emma, but Finn couldn’t let her die before, and he’s not about to let her die now. He will protect the girl he loves from the evil he accidentally unleashed, even if it means sacrificing the only thing he has left…his soul.”
I discovered this author on Twitter, I really liked the sound of Inbetween so I used my birthday money to purchase it (my birthday money is always spent on books :)).
The prologue was excellent, it helped me make sense of the blurb but also made me eager to know more. I was interested to find out that the story of Finn and Emma went further back than I had originally thought so their connection was strong right from the start. The spark between them could almost be felt through the pages.
Some of my favourite moments happened before Emma had actually seen Finn – I loved how protective he was towards her, following her around even when she didn’t know he was there.
The reason for Emma being in danger confused me a little to begin with but as I read on it all became clear. The whole reapers idea was refreshing and different and was something that really made this book stand out for me. The Inbetween was an unpleasant place – neither heaven nor hell but something in the middle and I have to admit that understanding the process of everything took a bit of concentration.
As Emma began to realise that something ghostly was going on she became inquisitive and decided to try contacting someone using a Ouija board – this was one of my favourite scenes because it was the start of a chain of events that captivated my imagination entirely. Emma’s best friend Cash was a lovely character, he was a very loyal friend and part of me wondered if he actually felt more for Emma than he let on!
The ending was amazing, everything I had hoped it would be. After reading this book in less than a day I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series Blurred which covers Cash’s story.
This was a mesmerizing story of a truly epic love, I can’t wait to read more from this author!
