Amberly agrees to house sit for Jonas but when she arrives she finds Dylan there. He also agreed to house sit. They try to stay away from each other but strange goings on in the house force them together and passion is stirred.

This is a fairly light read and though there are ghostly happenings, it is not scary. The ghosts seem to want Amberly and Dylan to get together but neither trusts love.

Amberly spends a lot of time furious with Dylan while he spends a lot of time fantasizing about Amberly. It leads to amusing results.

Both characters are warm and well-rounded and uncovering their hang ups leads to an interesting read.

The plot is well thought out and I really enjoyed the spooky happenings. It seems like the ghosts need to knock Dylan and Amberly's heads together to get them to realise they are meant to be together.

The story is fairly short but that makes the plot tighter and the emotions flow better because nothing is dragged out.

Both the characters are authors. Amberly writes romance while Dylan writes horror. It is interesting as their characters develop how their chosen genres suit their personalities. Not that it makes Dylan a nasty person, just that it unlocks childhood fears and is a means of escaping them.

I liked this story a lot. It is an easy book to read and keeps the reader hooked right to the end. Well worth investing in.
