Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Rating of this Book – 5 out of 5 stars

My Review:

I could hardly put Inbetween down! It was breath taking! The reapers’ world was so full of intrigue and the plot of a soul’s revenge was captivating. One step into this novel’s pages, and I was hooked.

But it was the characters were what really made the story delightful. They were all wonderful! Though I’ll admit, Finn would not be considered as one of my major book crushes in this novel. Those would actually be the secondary characters: Cash and Easton. But Finn was definitely one of my favorite main characters of the year. I felt connected to him.

As for Maeve, the soul exacting her twisted revenge on Emma, I found her simply chilling. I mean, what can a mortal really do when the person seeking revenge is already dead? I must say, at least Emma gave it her best shot on her own, but Maeve was relentlessness. She was the perfect villain for this novel, and I loved how you could see, physically, how her own darkness was swallowing her whole.

All in all, Inbetween is, hands down, a must read! I would highly recommend picking up a copy if you haven’t already!
