Overview

Breaking up is hard to survive.

One moment, Tate Cooper is giving his ex-girlfriend a lift home on his motorcycle. The next, his soul is suspended between life and death, wandering in confusion between the accident scene and the house he grew up in.

Except it’s not his home anymore. In his old bedroom sleeps a beautiful young woman, the only person who can see him. And the only person who can keep him from succumbing to the temptation to escape the horrific pain awaiting him in his mortal body.

Eloise Jones should be studying for her college exams, but it’s tough to stay focused when a lost soul keeps appearing in her room. She figures it must have something to do with sirens she heard screaming in the night, but she’s helpless to assist—and helpless to resist.

As Eloise tries to help Tate unravel the tangled facts surrounding the accident, longing and desire grow into an almost tangible bond between them. But then a second spirit appears, one with a darker intent that could separate them before love draws its first breath…

Warning: Contains a vengeful ex and a romance that crosses the boundary between life and death.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Husk’s supernatural contemporary romance novella features an unusual love triangle. After responsible Tate and party-girl Ruby break up, he offers her a ride home on his motorcycle, and they are hit by a drunk driver. Ruby dies and Tate spends the rest of the book in a coma, caught between life and death. The only person who can see Tate’s roaming spirit is Eloise, a college student who now lives in his childhood home. As Ruby tries to pull Tate into the afterlife, Eloise keeps him linked to the world of the living. Husk (Brightwater Blood) creates a vivid picture of the strange world that spirits see (“Through the mist he thought he glimpsed walls, or was it trees, or people?”), but the real world is less clear and the romance never quite gels. As the story moves steadily toward an inevitable resolution, readers may wish that Husk had more time to spend on her creative depiction of the afterlife. Agent: Eric Ruben, the Ruben Agency. (May)
Library Journal
Tate and Ruby have been together since high school, but now with Tate in college and Ruby pushing for marriage, Tate knows he and Ruby are finished. Sadly, he breaks it off just before they get into a horrific motorcycle accident. Tate is severely injured, and Ruby is killed. That doesn’t seem to matter, though; Ruby just can’t let go. Tate’s soul is wandering, drawn inexplicably to the house where he grew up and where he discovers Eloise, a girl who, through her own brush with death, can now see his spirit. Tethered to his injured body, Tate struggles with the understanding that he must make a decision to slip into the mists with Ruby or try to fight and find Eloise for real.

Verdict It seems that not even death can save the characters from becoming embroiled in a love triangle. Unfortunately, this novella by Husk (Brightwater Blood) is so short there isn’t time to develop the rather interesting premise or the characters.—Charli Osborne, Oxford P.L., MI
