Left destitute by an unscrupulous ex-boyfriend, Grateful Knight takes her father up on his offer to live rent-free in a house he hasn’t been able to sell. Desperate to make a new start, Grateful tries to overlook the property’s less desirable features, like the graveyard that stretches to her back door. On the bright side, the unbelievably gorgeous cemetery caretaker, Rick, is dead set on helping her feel at home. She vows to take things slow, considering her recent disastrous relationship, but is baffled when she literally can’t keep her hands off of him.
When things in Grateful’s house start moving on their own another man enters her life, a sexy ghost with a dark secret. Magical forces are at work in the tiny town of Red Grove and they’re converging on Grateful. Solving this ghostly mystery won’t be easy and with the caretaker becoming increasingly jealous of her spectral relationship, Grateful may be forced to choose between the ghost and the graveyard.
The story started somehow common, like how romance novels start, but the author’s style and thorough research is so damn great that it kept me up all night and finish it with just 2 days. (I’m reading/studying so this is unusual for me.)
Though fast, the story had this pace breaks that clarifies events, making the story line flawless.
The sexy level was also kept with the right dosage: moderately hot. Like, it’s a part of the story, not the center of attraction. The moderation of sexiness was satisfying and made me look forward to the next. It was also somewhat wholesome (isn’t it amazing?) so this is recommended to new adult genre-shifters.
The love triangle was VERY interesting. The author has this secret power that made me want to keep both Rick and Logan. But, well, I really like Logan. So Logan it is.
If you guys would like to try the paranormal side of new adult, this one’s highly recommended.
