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.
*This is a standalone in a three-part series that will focus on different characters. Each book can be read on its own.
This is the first book from author Ginger Scott that I have read, and I can say with absolute certainty that it won’t be my last. I must say I really enjoyed it.
The characters and there relationships in there group are wonderful. The writing is funny and the conversations and banter between the friends and the two brothers are great. The whole prank war that flows through the book gave me lots of laughs.
The back story was heartbreaking the trauma that Rowe went through and the after effects of it are truly awful. But Nate and Rowe were oh so swoon worthy together. Nate is a true knight, He’s not the campus bad boy man whore that is the usual guy in books, he is such a sweet heart you can’t help but fall for him. Nate was so patient, loving, and understanding of Rowe’s fears never making a issue of her need to sit in a corner in a restaurant for example.
This whole story was so touching and it had my emotions up and down, going side ways and diagonal at points. This is one of those stories that will make you cry (Nate’s letter, the tears were flowing) but when it’s finished you will have happy butterflies in your tummy and cartoon hearts floating around your head, it just so feel good.
Nate’s brother was hilarious and I can’t wait to read his story next, I loved that his character has had some challenges but that he doesn’t let it stop him from being out going and funny. I cannot wait to get more in depth with his story.
I will be reading more from Ginger Scott, I like her writing style and her story telling. Beautiful book.
