Daniel Van Doren was once a renowned writer, until he was blinded in the car accident that killed his lover. Now, all he sees are ghosts in need of help. They follow him everywhere, and the only way to be rid of his ethereal visitors is to help them resolve their unfinished business here on earth so their spirits can find peace.
Ghostwriter Logan Riley is assigned to pen Daniel's biography. He plans to reveal him as a fraud, but when they meet he's struck by Danny's quiet sincerity—and a growing attraction. Which makes sticking close to Danny to find out the truth more than a little distracting.
When they are attacked by a violent poltergeist Logan begins to believe Danny's not just telling the truth, he's in grave danger. A spirit has learned how to harness the energy of the living to break through the barrier between worlds to harm Danny. And Logan may be the one to blame…
I completely and thoroughly enjoyed this book. Both these guys have experienced a great loss. Danny lost his partner and his sight in a car wreck. Logan lost his ex-wife to a suicide. Both of them feel guilt because of the events leading up just prior to those deaths. It's bad enough when someone close to you dies, but when you have guilt involved with the complexity of those feelings, it's especially difficult.
The author of this book wrote the part of Danny's blindness really well. There was an enhanced sense of the story just because of the parts of the story which are told through his POV. It's hard to explain just how well this was done, but I truly felt his confusion and worry, especially when put into a new place or situation. I loved being in his head when the story was being told from his POV. It was interesting to get his perspective. I really enjoyed that aspect of this story.
I also really just loved both Danny and Logan's characters. Neither one of them have had much happiness or anything even remotely like a relationship in the last two years. And they are so incredibly drawn to each other, despite all the obstacles...and they do have obstacles...one red-headed poltergeist one who is truly terrifying. There was the perfect balance of sexy romance and suspenseful...'oh my god, how are they going to get out of this?' going on in this book that I just loved it.
The ghosts and blindness provided an interesting twist to the story and I definitely found myself enraptured by it. I'll definitely be reading more from this author in the future. I liked the way the story intertwined and unfolded to create this riveting read.
I received a complementary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
