A heartbreaking loss.
A love that transcends mortality.
A struggle between holding on and letting go…
KRISTIAN REED is only seventeen years old when his girlfriend, JESSICA SCOTT, dies in a tragic accident. Devastated and burdened with guilt, he finds it impossible to move on.
Six years later, he’s not doing any better. He’s accepted a prestigious internship at a big city news station, but he’s still losing himself in alcohol and women to numb his pain.
Jessica might be dead, but she’s not gone—at least not anymore…
She is pulled from Purgatory, and thanks to the presence of a personal memento, Kristian can see and feel her. But how can the ghost of his first love expect to be a part of his future?
BAILEY NICHOLS is assertive and annoying, but something draws her and Kristian together. Her brother hates him, but Bailey is used to getting what she wants. She knows the pain of losing people you love, and she’s determined to break through Kristian’s emotional wall and prove they belong together.
Jessica is caught between worlds. She can’t let go of Kristian, but she’s not meant to be here, and her lingering is threatening everyone and everything around her as she begins to lose herself to the darkness.
My Thoughts - Story
I have to be honest and let you know that I absolutely HATED Bailey…she annoyed me something fierce but I think it was because I had already chosen my side with Jessica.
Yeah, I know she wasn’t really alive and was only hurting Kristian by being around him…but their love story was so sweet and special before she died.
Yeah, Kristian deserved to be happy but in a perfect world…Jessica would come back to life and make his world whole again – oh yeah…and crush Bailey in the process.
Sorry – I just had a soft spot for Jessica. She didn’t ask for this!
Kristian and Jessica had the perfect relationship with their future all planned out until a tragic accident. Kristian is left on his own to pick up the pieces and years later still isn’t doing well without the love of his life.
Until Jessica shows up again (only to Kristian) ---- but in the meantime at Kristian’s new job there is another intern, Bailey, who won’t leave him alone. She pesters him to spend time with her…take her out…get out of his apartment and just have fun.
