Author: Tara Fuller
Cash is haunted by things. Hungry, hollow things. They only leave him alone when Anaya, Heaven’s beautiful reaper, is around. Cash has always been good with girls, but Anaya isn’t like the others. She’s dead. And with his deteriorating health, Cash might soon be as well.
Anaya never breaks the rules, but the night of the fire she recognized part of Cash’s soul—and doomed him to something worse than death. Cash’s soul now resides in an expired body, making him a shadow walker—a rare, coveted being that can walk between worlds. A being creatures of the underworld would do anything to get their hands on.
The lines between life and death are blurring, and Anaya and Cash find themselves falling helplessly over the edge. Trapped in a world where the living don’t belong, can Cash make it out alive?
My Rating of this Book – 5 out of 5 stars
And I thought Inbetween (Kissed by Death #1) was thrilling! Blurred was an amazing read, and at many a time, heart wrenching. I loved Cash from the first novel, Inbetween, and to read him in the state he was in—*shivers*—I wanted to give him as much comfort as Anaya had.
Cash was one of my two big crushes in Inbetween. And honestly, to see him struggle through living in an expired body and the choices he had to make—all of which seeming like they led to a bleak future—I really felt for him. I hated seeing him suffer. It twisted my heart. But despite it all, I like seeing Cash grow through it. How he discovered himself because of everything that was happening to him.
I also loved Anaya and how her heart was always with Cash. Actually, she surprised me in many ways in this novel. In Inbetween, I thought her a bit cold. But in this novel, I really began to understand her and how she created this brick wall because of her past. In fact, her story reminded me of a Dido song I love, My Lover’s Gone. It truly explains her heart, and I loved how Cash could finally make her open up again.
And the plot, well, I loved it! It was so intense. I was pretty much falling out of my seat, I was so close to the edge. And like the first novel, I couldn’t put Blurred down. Whenever I could, I snuck in more pages to read. The only person I missed in Blurred was Easton. He was always present in Inbetween, yet practically nonexistent in this novel. Of course, he was around when it really mattered, which has made me fall even deeper for this bad boy from Hell. Honestly, even with the minor role he had, I think he might have stolen my heart.
In all, I’m so happy I finally got to read Blurred. But let me make this clear—in the next novel, Easton is mine! 😉
